Will Bending Bullets allow an increased number of targets when using Rapid Shot(Ranger: Hunter)?
Rapid Shot: Make an RBA against each creature in or adjacent to a target square.
Bending Bullet: When you have LoE to a square adj to an enemy you can attack it, and it gains cover.
Target Square Normal Rapid Shot Bending Bullets
So which is the specific rule and which is the general rule in this case for targeting? Rapid Shot is a specific restriction on targeting, and Bending Bullets is giving you a specific upgrade in targeting capability (only need LoE to an adj square instead of the creatures square).
If it does work, it seems kinda powerful. However, Rapid Shot has a -2 already plus another -2 from cover from Bending Bullets and probably effectively another -1 or more because the ammo is unlikely to be the same enhancement bonus as your ranged weapon. And then the cost of course, and the fact that all ammo are uncommons.
I believe Rapid Shot takes precedence since it pre-establish the targets for the ranged basic attacks according to a predetermined location.
1. Select a square within range
2. Make a ranged basic attack against each creature in or adjacent to that square
So even if you have line of effect to a square adjacent to an enemy, you cannot attack that enemy unless he is in a square predetermined because Rapid Shot only let you attack creatures in or adjacent to a specific square.
