my question is about the lvl 13 at-will BM power, Brutal Barrage..... i want to know if the target falls prone right after the second hit, or after all 3 attacks (4 with augment 1) are made.
a member of my party is completely sure that BB prones after all 3 hits have been dealt, he says so because of the following 2 main reasons:
1 - acording to the RC page 92, the order of the entries in a power's description define the sequence in wich the power's effects occur. Therefor BB prones after all hits have been dealt.
2 - In the effect's description there's a confusing statement ("If you hit the target two OR MORE TIMES, it falls prone.") which somehow gives the idea that you could hit the target more than twice before falling prone... thus all 3 hits must be dealt before reading the effect's entry.
this was the answer given by CS:
Thank you for contacting us!
Q: Does a target that gets hit with Brutal Barrage go prone after the first two hits or after the power resolves?
A: The target would fall prone after the the final hit has been dealt. NOTE HERE THAT NO REASONS ARE GIVEN!
