comment What happens to effects when their origin dies?
@BlackEye technically, yes. There are plenty of monsters that raise an NPC or even NPCs who get raised automatically. The only real question might be what happens for that rare NPC who changes initiative position when they are raised (though that's a separate question).

comment What happens to effects when their origin dies?
Very good point, typically if, say, they get turned into a wraith when they die, they'll keep their same init.

comment Removing XP as a requirement to level
The only real thing with 4e is just making sure that the party has sufficient treasure awarded every level, after that there's really no need for XP, leveling every ~10 encounters is about the same. Excellent point that this doesn't solve the third bullet there.

comment What is the best two handed weapon in 4th edition?
While this is somewhat insightful, it's not really the kind of analysis this question is looking for.

comment Can an enemy overrule your dominate feature with another dominate attack power?
@Yakk is there a power that inflicts conditional weakened? (or any other status effect that's conditional?) How does this jive with the degrees of condition language? What actual rules support this conclusion?

comment Can an enemy overrule your dominate feature with another dominate attack power?
@Yakk you'd have to show that this is a clear exception (feel free to write up an answer yourself). But it's listed with the rest of the conditions, you'd have to prove that it behaves differently.

comment Can an enemy overrule your dominate feature with another dominate attack power?
@Yakk yes. it's a status effect, as such it's identical. See the degrees of effect passage I quoted.

comment Can an enemy overrule your dominate feature with another dominate attack power?
@Anna the only clear distinction is the last part of each of our answers Think about the ruling you as the DM would make there and accept that one. The guidance for accepted answers isn't actually the "Right" one, it's the "Most useful" one
