Requirement: You must be wielding a crossbow, a light blade, or a sling.
Effect: Before the attack, you can move up to 2 squares.
Ghostwalker Style, from Dragon Magazine 373, adds this to your Deft Strike power:
Deft Strike: If you didn't move before the attack, you can shift 1 square as a free action after the attack
One of my players thinks that because these two options are in the same attack, it means that you can only shift 1 square after the attack if you didn't move as part of the attack. I think that adding Ghostwalker Style to Deft Strike gives you an individual option, so you can't benefit from Ghostwalker Style if you take a move action before the attack action.
He is thinking that you can take a move action, moving a few squares, take standard action (deft strike), and then shift 1 square.
I think he can't benefit from Ghostwalker Style if he:
- moves one or two squares as part of Deft Strike
- uses a move action on his turn before using Deft Strike
Who is right?
