A question came up in todays session. If a Half-Orc uses an attack power that doesn't do any damage (for example, Song Of Discord, Bard 5) can they still apply the damage granted from their Furious Assault racial power?
I allowed the damage, imagining that it represented the characters natural ferocity causing an attack that wouldn't usually damage to actually hurt the enemy. However, upon re-reading the Furious Assault power it states that
The attack deals 1[W] extra damage if it's a weapon attack or 1d8 extra damage if it isn't
(Emphasis mine) Would this indicate that the damage is only applied if it is in addition to the usual damage of the power?
