Lightning Attack with Killing Strike?

5 posts in this topic

One of the players in my group recently combined Killing Strike with Lightning Attack. As I look at the descriptions, I noticed that Killing Strike required an All Out Attack, while Lightning Attack was a Half Action. Since they both take different amounts of time to perform, I was wondering if this was a viable combination.

I would say that as Killing Strike description says All Out Attack is used then it's that or nothing. Also did the player remember to spend Infamy Point.

Killing strike is a modification to all out attack. It can not be used with anything other than an All out Attack action.

It is not, as they are both Actions with the Attack subtype, and you can only make one action of any subtype each round.

So you can make a Movement and an Attack action, or an Attack and a Concentration Action, but not 2 Attack actions.
