but may still make offensive strikes and throw packets at other targets.
So it depends on what you think the intent is. I've sort of been interpreting the intent as "defensive wither" lets you do things to others but not yourself. So you can heal other people but not yourself. And the intent of "offensive wither" means you can only do things by touch either to yourself or others - so basically only things the target permits.I think the intent and focus here should specifically be on the end of the sentance
It isn't may make offensive strikes in general, and also throw packets at other targets. It reads as may do both at other targets. Which is the intent.
I get it, but that just means that once it gets clarified it’ll make sense.These two posts above are why I hate Wither.
You should ask them if they "Appear to be corrupted?" before attempting if you're worried that could be a possibility. If they were created they should be shambling and stuff per the spell description.I think I understand, I'm just trying to make sure.
So Purify Strike is not a carrier, but I think you are using that as a straw man not a justification. In the case where I don't know if Shin is undead or just charmed, I just know he's casting necromancy, is it reasonable to use "Purify Strike" while Defensively Withered? It is a potent attack against undead.
And I suspect your answer is "If I think it'll help him, I can't do it, but if I think he is undead its fine (even if I end up being wrong). And in no case can I use it on myself."
