Expert handling and advanced sensors

7 posts in this topic

Can my B-wing perform a barrel roll Free action with expert handling) and lock on (normal action using adv sensors) before moving?

Expert Handling only gives you the free barrel roll when you take the "Expert Handling" action provided by the card. So no, that would not work.

To be clear though, you can use Advanced Sensors to use the Expert Handling action prior to moving. You just can't take the free barrel roll action outside of using the entire Expert Handling action. It's kind of an embedded action, as part of doing Expert Handling you get to barrel roll.

Now, if you had Advanced Sensors and Push the Limit, you could barrel roll and then target lock before moving. However, you can't have two elite pilot talents on a single b-wing, so it won't work with an Expert Handling barrel roll.

Doesn't really matter anyway, since you can't take the same action twice in one turn, so Vader with Expert Handling can't barrel roll then take a free barrel roll action provided by anything else. Since EH gives you a free action, you have to have not taken that action already in the turn (compare to Soontir, who is given a free focus token (so can use PTl to focus and evade, gaining a total of 1 evade token and 2 focus tokens), or Night Beast, who takes a free focus action (so can't take focus regularily if he does a green maneuver))
