Can someone provide clarification on this:
In addition, enemies adjacent to your conjurations or summoned creatures grant combat advantage. An enemy that is immune to fear is immune to this effect.
Is this only for purposes of attacks the feat-owner makes or is this a passive bonus granted to anyone adjacent to the conjuration or summoned creature? Also, if this is only for attacks made by the feat owner, does it only apply to implement attacks make with a tome?
Staff expertise explicitly calls out the granted benefit is only granted when the staff is used as an implement, so I'm unsure if I should infer the same restriction on tome expertise.
For as long as they are adjacent to your conjurations or summoned creatures, enemies will grant combat advantage to anyone, this wherever they are on the map.
It does what it says it does - enemies adjacent to your summons and conjurations grant Combat Advantage, without restrictions or qualifications. If they are adjacent to a summon or conjuration you created, they grant CA.
Tome Expertise is a little silly.
In fairness Tomes are kind of lame otherwise, they don't even have an accurate SIP.
Yeah, I did a complete rebuild of my Shaman|Rogue when Tome Expertise was released. It seems kind of silly for him to run around wielding a tome and a rapier (by strict RAW, he doesn't need a tome to be in hand or equipped, but he does it anyway.) But then I realized that there is a mini for a human spellsword that is holding a sword and a book. So, win-win!
It is nice to have CA without having to move or any of that other weirdness the Thief has to go through. :P
