Let's say I use an Attack Power that runs the Attack Roll on Strength vs AC (with the key word Weapon) which if hit then does 1 [W]+Strength Modifier.

Since I also have proficiency with the weapon, do I then gain the Proficiency Value from the weapon to that roll or do I only gain that proficiency value on a Basic attack?


1 Answer 1


You gain the proficiency bonus of the weapon as long as:

  1. You are proficient with the weapon, and
  2. The power has the Weapon keyword.

In your case, both are true so yes, you do!

Edit: Just for clarity, since it isn't entirely clear what you mean: Proficiency bonuses apply to attack rolls only, not damage rolls.
