I have an item that gives me a bonus to all defenses until I make an attack. I play a passive warlord/Shaman who only grants attacks with multiple dailies/encounters and Spirit infusion. I rarely ever attack. However the Spirit infusion power is a Shaman attack power. But the target of Spirit infusion is my ally so I am really not attacking. Is this legit?
Using an attack power count as making an attack if you make an attack roll or if the power has a target.
Which is odd, because technically the Warlord power Direct the Strike causes you to attack your ally. Same goes for Spirit Infusion.
I completely agree that it doesn't make sense, which is why I really, really wish the RC hadn't muddled the attack definition by adding in a second, idendical definition for the same word, but what can you do.
They did it for Magic Missile and other Autodamage Attack Powers.
I agree its akward. It should instead have said;
''using such a power counts as making an attack if the power has a target and you deal damage to it''
I just thought of something.
A Warlord who is Marked is subject to punishment when he uses Direct the Strike.
So would spirit infusion be used through an implement? If so I can find multiple implements with effects that happen when I make an attack with them. Also can this atack hit, it would seem it cannot hit.
