I recently bought the Pathfinder Beginner’s Box and we (all new to RPGs) were discussing the Black Fang’s melee attacks.
Black Fang’s attack is described as follows:
MELEE (standard action) bite +10 (1d10+3)
MELEE (move and standard action) bite +10 (1d10+3), 2 claws +9 (1d8+2)
I would think that using the second attack that uses both actions, Black Fang could first attack PC with bite and then follow with a 2 claws attack. I learned that with 2 claws he can target one PC with each claw. So basically, he could either waste one PC with three consecutive attacks, or severly injure up to three PCs. So that would make him extremely powerful.
Another thought was that I could attack either with bite or with 2 claws. This would make sense because 2 claws is already a very powerful attack, but on the other hand this seems stupid because why should I waste the move action and choose bite as my attack.
How do I read his move and standard action attack, if there are multiple attacks separated by commas?
