As part of this Multiclass feat it tells me to:

Choose a warlock pact. You gain the pact's at-will power as an encounter power, and you can pursue the warlock paragon path based on that pact.

Now according to the warlock features:

Pact boon: Each pact includes a pact boon...

Now I understand that pact boon activates mainly when you have a warlock curse on an enemy, but nonetheless do you still have a pact boon because of this multiclassing feat?



Choose a warlock pact. You gain the pact's at-will power as an encounter power...

So you choose the pact, but you only gain the at-will power.

The Warlock (Binder) class has 5 class features:

  1. Eldricht Blast, which grants the homonymous power
  2. Eldricht Pact, which lets you choose a pact and grants two things:
    1. An At-Will spell
    2. A Pact Boon
  3. Prime Shot: +1 to hit enemies that are closer to you than to any of your allies (or at equal distance).
  4. Shadow Walk, which grants concealment if you move at least 3 squares.
  5. Warlock's Curse, the striker signature.

Pact Initiate gives you only the ability 2.1 (not the 2.2 which interacts with 5). As a plus, you are considered to have that pact for prerequisites' issues.

  • \$\begingroup\$ As I read the Eldritch Pact hybrid (PHB3) it clearly states: "This class feature functions as the warlock class feature, except you don't gain the at-will or the Pact Boon granted by it." It clearly says that you don't gain the pact boon there but not in the Pact Initiate. \$\endgroup\$ – Caden Raikoujin Iyori Dec 9 '11 at 23:44

    \$\begingroup\$ Pact Initiate, instead, states you gain the pact's at-will spell, but does not mention the pact boon. \$\endgroup\$ – Erik Burigo Dec 12 '11 at 11:12
