comment Why does the “insubstantial” quality exist?
A battle is over in what, 4 rounds average, 8 round tops? Did you calculate how much extra damage is likely to resisted by rounding down? It ain't much.

Why do you have to correctly guess it? Why not "The defender takes a move action, a standard action, or a minor action"?

comment What is the total net bonus when attacking an unconscious creature?
I agre @Random832 but if the creature was previously Flanked/Stunned/Prone and then became Unconscious, the die roll to hit only went up by 5.

I was thinking more along the lines of the DM using it to get past the Defender PC.

OK, so what if you ready the action so it goes off after the defender's first action?

comment Using a Readied Action to avoid Opportunity Attacks
As it says in the post, it's an anti-sticky tactic. Some Defenders are supposed to be "sticky" as in hard to get past (to the squishies) and hard to away from once they engage. They mostly enforce this by OAs. The purpose of this tactic is to get past/away from the defender.

removing the extra "Surprised", adding a few new wrinkles

comment Why is a dice roll required when doing a creature hp check?
"That's because you cannot roll a zero on a die"...and also because all dice used for hit dice have an even number of sides. If some wacky monster had a hit die with an odd number of sides, the die average would be an integer.

comment Is this charge-based build legal?
Don't forget about readied actions -- even if they don't provoke OAs, they're still susceptible to an NPC (minion?) defender sacrificing its standard action.

comment Can a creature immune to Immobilized walk away from a creature grabbing it?
I think I see what you're saying -- the battlemind is not immune to Grabbed, so the Grabbed condition is in effect. And I agree with that. The question is, do you draw a distinction between a condition and the effects of that condition. For instance, a condition is "Granting Combat Advantage to all attackers". One of the effects of that condition is that attackers get a +2 to attack. But there's a feat that negates that. If you have that feat, attackers don't get a +2 to attack any more, but you still grant CA. This doesn't violate the "No Degrees of Effect" rule. I think it's the same here.

comment Can a creature immune to Immobilized walk away from a creature grabbing it?
I don't see how this rules out the idea that the creature is still Grabbed but the definition of Grabbed has changed. If a creature gets hit with a condition that is Blinded + 5 ongoing damage (save ends) and the creature is immune to Blinded, it still takes the 5 ongoing damage.
