That's not necessarily true about the wording. "When activating" doesn't mean "at the beginning of the activation" anymore than "when moving" means "as you take your first step," or "when attacking" means "immediately after you declare your target." The phrase "when activating" could very, very conceivably be taken to mean "during a monster's activation," and that's how my group has been playing (based on the unofficial ruling cited above on BGG.)
Okay, "when activating" could reasonably be understood as "anytime during a monster's activation" (although "when" is not "while", I would have thought "when" referred to a specific moment in time, but I'm not a native english speaker so I'll leave that to you), but I was wondering about any other occurences of the wording "when activating" or "when you activate" on other cards or even quest rules. Can we extrapolate the new definition to any instance of the wording? I wish we had a PDF version of everything in this game so we could search for specific text and make sure we have everything covered.
But yeah, I mean that's a hell of an improvement. I was already championing these cards but now this errata makes the cards Frenzy and Dash even more viable. I really like the flexibility. I don't think this is going to improve my win/lose ratio by any means, but I'm going to use my cards more effectively from now on. Wish Expert Blow got the same errata
