Which version of Tumble is correct? The powers are exactly the same Level 2 Utility, Encounter, Req. Acrobatics training. The difference is in the effect.

Player's Handbook (PHB) ~ Effect:You can shift a number of squares equal to one-half your speed.

Heroes of the Forsaken Lands (HotFL) ~ Effect: You shift up to your speed.

Neither of these has an Errata. So which is held to be correct?

The text in the compendium agrees with the HotFL with the following note:

"Update (9/30/2011) Updated in Class Compendium"

That seems pretty clearly to me that there is errata in the class compendium that updates the PHB1 power to the HotFL text.

Checking the Class Compendium for the Scoundrel Rogue (an update to the PHB1 classes), it agrees with the HotFL power description.

Thanks for quick answer glad someone can find an errata. Guess WotC needs to errata the errata. – Jeff Dec 20 '12 at 19:40
@Jeff Technically, it's an update, not errata, in my opinion. Plus, if you have a question like this, the compendium is usually the authoritative and updated source to check. – Adriano Varoli Piazza Dec 21 '12 at 17:19
