I have a player that requests my ruling on the combination of these two feats.


Shield Push

Heroic Tier
Prerequisite: Fighter, Combat Challenge class feature
Benefit: If you hit a foe with an attack granted by your Combat Challenge class feature, you push the target 1 square after dealing damage.
Special: You must be using a shield to benefit from this feat.


Staggering Challenge

Paragon Tier
Prerequisite: 11th level, fighter, Combat Challenge class feature
Benefit: When you hit an enemy with a melee basic attack granted by Combat Challenge while you are using a shield, you can knock the target prone instead of dealing damage with the attack.


 


 I understand that this is technically not going to work together.  His argument is that he believes that Wizard's did not take into acount that these two feats coexist and that the mention of pushing the target 1 square after dealing damage was just to represent the time that it would happen. So he asks if it would be feasible for these two to work. My fear is that i have no idea if this is to cheesy, I'm wondering what others would do.
Shield Push says you push him 'after dealing damage'.
Staggering Challenge says you knock the target prone 'instead of dealing damage'.

The two are incompatible.
Another day, another three or four entries to my Ignore List.
Thanks.
