Can you use the Nimble Blade[ddi] for magic attacks ?

Benefit: When you attack with a light blade and you have combat advantage, you gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls.

The feat doesn't specify that it only applies to weapon attacks, so you can benefit from this feat when you use an implement power as long as the implement you use with the power is a light blade.

Yeah that was my reading, but good to get a second opinion ... thanks – SteveC May 21 '12 at 9:30
That wordings is the current version right, from the DDI Compendium? There's a couple things that have been re-worded to specifically apply only to weapon powers or only to implement powers. While the wording there is definitely OK either way, you should check to make sure it hasn't been errata-ed. Don't have DDI or I'd check it myself. – Oblivious Sage May 21 '12 at 15:20
