Talk:Horned Devil (4e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Regarding the needsbalance template. It's not the utility power itself per se that is dealing the damage, it's Infernal Wound. What I want is is to give the player the option to have their encounter attack power deal ongoing damage. Since ongoing damage should be a daily effect, it needs to be tied to a daily power.
Now a long time has passed since I created this, but I recall I based the (no save) condition on a published power that did the same. 5 ongoing damage isn't great at 16th level. Typical fights last 4 to 6 rounds, so even if used on the first round, this is only 20 to 30 damage.
Infernal Wound only deals the extra damage if the target makes an attack in their next turn. In most cases, the enemy can find something else to do, there are lots of actions that are not attacks. It is a battlefield control power. Marasmusine (talk) 12:23, 31 July 2017 (MDT)
