Obsidian Scalemail + blast question

Recommended Posts

Obsidian Scalemail : "Each time you are attacked and suffer no hearts, recover 2 fatigue."

My questions is : if the hero with the Obsidian Scalemail is affected with a blast attack but not the initial target, does he recovers 2 [Fatigue] ?

More globally if it's not specifyed "attacked" does it means 'targeted by an attack' or 'affected by an attack' ?

That's a great question.

As far as I know, there is no official answer to this one.

Personally, I would play it as the Scalemail would still trigger whether the hero was targeted or affected by the attack, so Blast attacks would be included.

There are a few other abilities which use this wording of "each time you are attacked", such as the hero cards Eliam and Lyssa from Conversion Kit, but I don't think this has been brought up for them either.

I think its worth e-mailing FFG about this one.

My guess would be that it counts as an attack if you follow the regular attack steps (rolling attack and defense dice etc.), even if the hero is not the direct target of the attack.

Felin, if you do, be sure to let us know what they say. That's an excellent question.

Of course I will do

... but I have some questions yet pending since 6 months without answer ...
Add to this that Descent had no news since some time (and I don't even speak about physical content nor an FAQ update !! [subliminal advertisement for Sadgit's CRRG!! 🤫] ) 

So if I find the time and the spirits to post the question ... I'm not even sure to have an answer to post here  ! 😕
