This may seem like a stupid question, and I am sorry if it is, I just couldn't find an answer to this anyewhere.
For the Coup de grace it states that "If you deal damage greater than or equal to the target's bloodied value, the target dies."
Is this only in the case of an unconsious opponent hit by the max damage action? or does this apply to any opponent at any given time during an encounter?
No, the greater than or equal to bloodied only applies for coup de grace. You won't find that stated anywhere else because it's only stated in cases of a coup de grace. There is no other rule about "massive damage" in 4e like there was in 2e.
And keep in mind, doing a coup de grace and slaying the target outright has nothing to do with them being Unconscious, necessarily. The target only has to be Helpless. It's just that the most common way to be Helpless is to be Unconscious.
Ok, thankyou very much! It came up in debate as myself and some friends are just getting into 4e. We all became a little confused confused but this clears it up. thanks
