No. If you have a Amulet of Protection +1, it stays an Amulet of Protection +1. You will have to find, buy, or make an Amulet of Protection +2 if you want that instead. All items work this way. Although there are artifacts (such as the Staff of Fraz-Urb'luu) that can increase their enhancement based on other parameters, they are the exception rather than ...

There are actually two questions in the OP, so I'll answer them both. Yes, the power can be used in a place without valid targets. An Area Attack doesn't aim at a target. It aim at a square (within line of effect, as usual), and usually targets creatures within the area created around the target square. If there is no valid targets in the area, usually ...

You cannot use any powers through a pane of glass or any other transparent block. This is because all powers unless they state otherwise require line of effect. You have Line of Sight since you can see the target, but you do not have Line of Effect. Line of Effect: A clear line from one point to another point in an encounter that doesn’t pass through or ...

If it's adjacent to you, yes. It just targets "a creature of your choice adjacent to you". If it was intended to exclude the triggering foe it would say, "another creature of your choice adjacent to you" (or, as mentioned by doppelgreener below, "an enemy... other than the attacker"). I would imagine that the power was deliberately written to include the ...

The Wizard power stinking cloud has a range of Area burst 2 within 20 squares, not a target creature, meaning that the spell does not need to hit a target to succeed. The Wizard can target a burst spell on any space within range (in this case, 20 squares of herself) that she can affect (is not blocked by a solid object such as a wall), and the cloud covers a ...

Usually the interpretation of reactions to being reduced to 0 hit points are: After all other effects of the damage/attack that made the reduction are accounted for (e.g. a Push on the attack that damaged the target). Before the consequences of being at 0 hit points are themselves resolved. So the character is not yet considered unconscious or dying. ...

From a quick look at the Lifespirit Warden it looks like you don't actually get Healing outside of your second wind feature so much as THP and Resistances (at least in the level area you're looking at, and admittedly this is only after a quick search). Both of these are ok overall as mitigation is good, but it doesn't allow you to bring up someone who ...

The situation is somewhat interesting to analyze. I'm usually the DM of my group, and I try to avoid those kinds of situations on a 5-person group (alongside making sure at least one person is trained on each skill and such), but sometimes people just really want to play what they want to play, and you go to the dungeon with a party that don't cover all the ...

Both of the answers here seem to rely on the idea that crawling is not a type of movement, but walking is. That seems to be expressly ruled out by the quotes regarding Prone and Crawl, which state: Prone the only way it can move is by crawling, teleporting or being pushed, pulled or slid. Crawl Movement: Move up to half your speed. Unless ...

While Nibelung's answer has its heart in the right place, and is correct in its explanation of 4e's design ethos, it's missing a key element: In 4th Edition, rules do what they say they do, and ONLY what they say they do. This rule says that the attack targets a creature of your choice adjacent to you, but it fails to specify "even if the new target would ...
