Driven by hatred interaction question

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, yesterday we had a tournament and was asked if Vader could use Force surge, during the "activation" at the end of the round because of driven by hatred.

Force surge reads:
Use at the end of your activation to move up to 1 space. Then, choose an adjacent hostile figure. That figure suffers 2 Damage.png and 1 Strain.png.

I want to extend this question to cards like Element of surprise and others that involve timing like "start/end of activation". Every time that a character makes a action outside of his activation, is considered like a activation?

Thanks

No.

Performing an attack or performing Force Choke does not make it an activation. No-one is activating during end of round.

(Element of Surprise can be used during some other figure's activation though - elite imperial Officer, Jabba, Emperor, etc. allowing another figure to perform an attack during this activation. Element of Surprise has been ruled to refer to "this activation" instead of "your activation".)

So any card that is "start/during/end of activation" it can't be used outside of that figure's normal activation right? But I could use fleet footed on a figure that is resolving a movement because of an Order of a Imp. Officer?

No. Be literal. A card that is at start, during, or end of AN activation can be used at the relevant moment at any figure's activation. If if is "at the start of your activation", "during your activation", or "at the end of  your activation", it can only be used at the proper moment of your own activation.

Fleet Footed is "during your activation", so it cannot be used by a figure getting to perform a move during other figure's activation. (It is the Imperial Officer's activation when performing Order.)
