Consider the level 5 ranger daily power Flying Steel:

Flying Steel
Effect: Until the end of the encounter, if the target ends its turn without cover from you, you can make a ranged basic attack with a weapon against the target as an immediate reaction. This effect also ends if the target has cover from you at the end of any of your turns.

If I were to take the Archery Mastery feat and gain Rapid Shot or Clever Shot, can I gain the effect for the ranged basic attack?

Effect: You make a ranged basic attack with a weapon against each creature in or adjacent to a square within the attack's range. You take a −2 penalty to the attack rolls.

I'm about 90% sure that I can't do that, although the effect does say: make a ranged basic attack.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Your question as stated is fine; but the additional questions you ask at the end 1) should be part of a different question and 2) probably aren't a good fit for the SE format unless you have very specific guidelines \$\endgroup\$ – firedraco Jan 18 '17 at 18:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I will post a seprete question later that corresponds acordingly with specific guidelines! Thank you \$\endgroup\$ – cornpie Jan 18 '17 at 19:03

No. Rapid Shot/Clever Shot are actions that happen to have you make a basic attack; they are not basic attacks.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you that is what I assumed! I was thinking of getting Adamant Arrow style feat, but that would require me to swap out some of my multi-hit powers. Are there other ways of replacing my ranged basic attacks? \$\endgroup\$ – cornpie Jan 18 '17 at 19:00
