Well I was being trolled by a kid who thought Rain of Blows did more damage than Thicket of Blades.
I informed him it was an AOE.
He made some mile long post about how you don't get to hit many targets with it. Did a bunch of number twisting. Must have spent a ton of time on the post.
I informed him fighters get Come and Get It, an AOE that draws a 7x7 square of enemies to you before you pop TOB as an action point.
He said that I should post it somewhere and see if I get support.
I informed him that I had. Turns out that 24W is good even if you only get a piece of it.
I don't expect he will apologize. Probably just get mad and behave poorly some more.
