    You stated having a +2 weapon allows you to avoid that issue; I just want you to know that it does not. I am not telling you to change anything; I just want you to know (and knowing is half the battle TM).
    Ok, thanks. I freely admit to knowing NOTHING that's in any of the Essentials books. My 4E knowledge comes from the hardcover books, and was limited even at that. So now I'm not only limited, I'm totally outdated!

    I add Cha AND Dex??? Party time!

    - And, yes, his Dex bonus isn't added to any of those damage (should be +9 all told).
    I'm attaching the PDF for reference.
    Thanks. See above about the +2 dice thing. eesh, and I thought I knew what I was doing!

    The original Weapon Expertise and Implement Expertise feats were in PH2 (though they've been errata'd since then). Versatile Expertise (which lets you pick one weapon and one implement and get expertise bonuses to them with both weapon and implement powers) and Superior Implement Training are in PH3. The new weapon (and implement) specific expertise feats (which are better in most cases, because they improve at levels 11 and 21 instead of 15 and 25, and have side effect bonuses) are in the Essentials books, but some types of weapons and imlements (and especially, non-staff weapons as implments) don't have a new-style expertise feat yet.

    Um, yeah, I never bothered to read PH2 or PH3 as I figured there was nothing in them worth reading.
    Except for the new classes and races, that is, and I just skimmed over even that part of PH3, since it's almost all psionic junk.

    Sadly, I can't edit a .pdf. Guess I'll have to manually copy it into an OpenOffice file.

    Dude, you're playing a sorcerer (PH2 is where D&D classics gnomes, half-orcs, bards, barbarians, druids, and sorcerers first appeared for 4e).

    Oh, I read the class and race parts of it! Just not the boring stuff.

    For every one hundred men you send us, Ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine of them are real fighters; We are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior. And he will bring the others back. - Heraclitus of Ephesus, 500 BC

    It's fine. Just post it when you can.

    BTW, you and Leif can post in the IC now; you don't need to wait to get your characters done. The only thing you guys can't do is make skill checks pertaining to the current skill challenge until your characters are posted. You can still interact with NPCs, the other PCs, and so forth.
    Leaving EN World for the land of novel writing. I'll be back someday.

    Cool, thanks Insight. I know there are about 3 pages of IC posts already, so I'll try to get caught up.
