comment Does Vecna's Aura work on revenant players?
I don't have a full answer here, but keep in mind that a monster can spend a minor action to turn off an aura. So at the very least you can avoid healing your PCs.

Great concise explanation in Example 2.

@ColinD yeah that's the explanation for how to apply marked in example 2. It's irrelevant to Glowering Threat, but is relevant to a complete answer here.

@ColinD This is specifically to determine if Glowering Threat carries the same rider that marked does re: attack includes you as a target. Let me see if an example will help.

comment What are ways to make enemies count as bloodied?
@bmargulies both of the links go to wizards' compendium database which is behind a paywall. I can snag the book and page refs from there and post them though.

comment Does Superior Will work on Unnatural Vitality?
@Ravn See the next line "So once you clear daze, your stay that way till you get healed and drop below 0 again." Then it goes on to suggest SW as a way to clear the daze

@Tijnkwan thanks, I thought I'd axed that first n, but I've fixed it now.

comment Does Superior Will work on Unnatural Vitality?
Yeah, I only see 2 possible readings here, either dazed is cleared until you fall unconscious, or you fall unconscious when you clear the dazed, and the more I read up, the more I'm buying this ruling. Worth mentioning that this ruling is supported by the Revenant handbook

@Ellesedil tbh that's when you should actually start caring about damage types anyways. Most damage type feats start then.

@JonathanHobbs the familiar takes up the same space as a tiny creature, even though it's size small.

They both mean modifier. The target and Hit lines you different terms to indicate different uses. Target lines get 1/2 level applied, damage doesn't.

Ok, hopefully my answer, and the Q&A I linked above will help you understand attack powers. Let me know in the comments below my answer if I can clarify anything for you. The monster doesn't roll. Defenses start at 10+half level+stat mod.
