Hey everyone!

This post is going to be a place to collect all the rulings and clarifications from the Discord rules channel and any clarifications or FAQ's from the patch notes that aren't in the rulebook yet. This should make it much easier to search for relevant rulings and clarifications (long live CTRL+F).  If you see anything that should be added, corrected, or removed, please post on this thread with the clarification/ruling and the source, such as the patch number, forum post, or discord post (please include date/poster for Discord so I can find it). Any other suggestions are always welcome as well.

Finally, always remember the Golden Rule. If at any point you are unable to determine the correct way to play any given situation,  Styx dies.

The Bale & Sarna blog post mentions a single shared activation for the unit in the description, but not in the core rules section.

 

Sarna's Soul Boost could be more precise:

Quote:
Enemy model damaged by Mystic Wand suffers 1 extra damage, per Soul currently bound to them, from this unit commander's basic attacks for the rest of this unit's activation.

@Guns, here's a few items for possible clarification. Are they OK for inclusion?

  • Dor'Gorkaan can use flight during his Hunter advance
  • If two opposing Null Stones are within range of each other, the active player's Null Stone takes priority and cancels the other. If it is in the Communion phase, both function and neither player gets the benefit of magical artifacts  within 4" of the opponent's Null Stone.
  • When determining Path of Least Resistance, if a models base is perfectly covers another's, the heroes will get pushed to the side closest to their own effigy.
  • If a soul spawns on a soul pit that is perfectly covered by another soul, the new soul will spawn on the edge closest to the nearest hero.
  • If a soul is pulled from a model, such as through Saiyin's Soul Beckon, there must be a legal position where it can be placed base to base with the hero it was on. If the model it was on is surrounded in such a way that there is no legal position a soul could be placed base to base with it, a soul cannot be pulled off that hero.
  • If a model gives up a soul due to the Suicide Rule, the nearest eligible model collects the soul.

Hi @Bartlow, yes, absolutely. I am going to incorporate a lot of these into the next patch. Thanks for posting.
