The Battle Aspect utility power reads as follows (PHB3 pag 50):

Battle Aspect Battlemind Utility 10

Daily ✦ Polymorph, Psionic, Teleportation

Minor Action Personal

Effect: Until the end of the encounter, you gain resist 5 to all damage and can teleport 3 squares as a move action.

The Cloak of Translocation (AV2 pag 66) reads as follows:

Cloak of Translocation Level 9+

Item Slot: Neck

Enhancement: Fortitude, Reflex, and Will

Property: When you use a teleportation power, you gain a +2 bonus to AC and Reflex until the end of your next turn.

Power (Daily): Minor Action. You regain the use of an encounter teleportation power that you have already used during this encounter.

My question is twofold:

  • Does activating battle aspect trigger the cloak's property? My guess is yes, since I am using a teleportation power (the keyword is there).
  • Does using a move action to teleport 3 squares trigger the cloak's property? My guess would be no, because I already "used" the teleportation power, but I'm not entirely sure.

You can use the cloak's property when you first use Battle Aspect since it is a teleportation power by virtue of having the Teleportation keyword. Using the effect is not “using” the power. You're just engaging a convenient effect you acquired.

Whatever is described in an “Effect” entry simply happens, regardless of its position in the sequence of entries. (Rules Compendium page 96, emphasis mine)
