At 4th level, an investigator can use a move action to study a single enemy that he can see. Upon doing so, he adds 1/2 his investigator level as an insight bonus on melee attack rolls and as a bonus on damage rolls against the creature. This effect lasts for a number of rounds equal to his Intelligence modifier (minimum 1) or until he deals damage with a studied strike, whichever comes first.
I am just not getting it. Let us assume I have a Level 4 Investigator with Int 16.
What is the right handling of Studied Conbat?
- The I invest a move action to get a +2/+2 for the next hit. If I want to hit the target again, using studied strike, I have to invest a move action after I hit him.
- I have to invest one move action to get 3 rounds of +2/+2 and then I have to invest another move action to get another +2/+2?
