Recently I've been seeing several NPC monster entries with blast range attacks that have no stated target included, whereas player abilities often specifically say what they hit. For example:
Storm Pulse (standard, recharge ) Lightning Close blast 5; +15 vs Reflex; 2d4+8 lightning damage, and the target is weakened (save ends).
Is from a npc sheet, while player abilities often say their targets within the blast ("All creatures, all enemies, one creature, etc.")
I'm a bit unsure how to handle this. When an attack doesn't specify what targets within its range to attack like the one above, what should I default to for the target range?
If you want the specific sheet I'm looking at: http://www.wizards.com/dndinsider/compendium/display.aspx?page=monster&id=3338 (DDI membership needed)
