Question about MAP


Rules Discussion


Standard apologies if this has been answered. etc etc.
If a creature has two attack forms. One normal, and one agile. And it attacks with the normal first, then agile, then back to normal.
Say his attack bonus is +20. Would it go +20, +16, +11? Or would it go +20, +16, +10?
I guess what I'm asking is.. does the -4 or -5 (and -8 and -10) come off the attack in front of it? Or does it come off of the original number?
I hope this made sense.

I have no idea, but, I would like to add to this question. Do creatures get all their attacks, or are they limited to just the 3 actions of humanoids?

I would assume the agile trait would only effect the one attack and does not carry over to the other attacks.

That one I do know.

They still get 3 strikes, like humanoids. But sometimes they have special abilities. Like the draconic frenzy that's similar to a monk's flurry of blows.

MAP uses only the number of previous attacks, and the traits of the current weapon. You would attack at +20, +16, +10. Using agile weapons later is therefore better.

Ohhh. Okay. So Main, Main, Agile would go +20, +15, +12?

That's pretty good. I think I get it now.
