And that truck is an ice cream truck and I am after a double dip!
Here is the run down:
Let's say for the sake of argument I have a nice friendly 1st level berserker. He plops down off the mickey mouse press with ears still attached although if he is lucky the GM will let those ears be a horned helm like every true berserker should have!
But I digress ...
So the text of Berserker Fury reads:
The fury has the following effects.
+ Your defender aura ends, if it was active, and you
cannot use defender aura or venaefulauardian until
the fury ends.
+ Some of your powers, such as your barbarian mar-
tial at-will attack powers, gain additional benefits,
as noted in those powers.
+ Your melee basic attacks deal1d8 extra damage.
This extra damage increases to 2d8 at 11th level
and 3d8 at 21st level.
So each of these effects is applied in serial fashion.
Erik, our new zerker, charges his very first goblin victim, Ulg.
He has violated protocol and taken an Old barbarian power, Howling Strike because, secretly, he is crafty, especially for a berzerker. His father, however, declares that he is not a true berzerk!
Anyway, since he is charging Howling Strike is now an MBA so he gets [w]+d6+str and +d8 for the fury. At 11th level Erik does [w]+2d6+str+2d8. I think he might actually be a true berserk!
Is that correct? because of the charge MBA howling strike becomes a berserker double dipping situation?
And another question that immediately springs to mind ... if a power lets you shift and do an MBA then can I shift/charge as long as I have a distance of 2 or more in a straight line?
