I'm confused, sorry if this has come up before - a bound spell, does it cast automatically with the number of dice equal to its bound level (so, 4 dice for a ring of Corin for example) and the dispel roll has to equal the total of those 4 dice, or is it dispelled on a roll of 4+?
I find the former more appealing, of course - makes me want to use Teclis and the Everqueen wherever possible for level 5 bound spells.
A Bound spell, is a magic usuall contained within an item that can be released a some point during a game, once or multiple times, depending on the item in question.
For example. The High elf ring of corin has a casting of Vauls Unmaking on a bound level of 4, once a turn (if wanted). To dispel this magic, the opponent must roll 4+ to dispel the spell. This means you can burn opponents power dice, or unleash it when they have already use them all up.
Hope that helps

for bound spells, you dont use dice. everything is explained on page 153 in the BRB. you can choose to unleash the spell within the item in the magic phase. then the spell bound within the item is cast by the item. you DO NOT need any power dice. then your oppenent can dispell it. if he chooses to do so, he has to take as many dispell dice as he wants to use. so he rolls the dice and if its equal to, or over the power level, the spell is dispelled. this is quite good to make your opponent use a lot of his dispell dice so you, after having used the bound spell, can cast all the spells that your wizards can cast, and the foe will not have enough dispell dice to dispell the other spells.Originally Posted by Alexb83
did you understand this, or am i just bad at explaining?
Thanks, I think you got it across fine - definately makes sense to have a mage burn up their scrolls and DD beforehand! I haven't really started using magic heavily yet (first and foremost been playing dwarves, secondly only been playing WHFB for a little while) but with High Elves, I'm bound to have to learn sooner rather than later!
yeah, magic is nearly the best part of WHFBOriginally Posted by Alexb83
Magic? Baahh who needs magic when you can hear the sweet music of steel clashes together and elven warriors crying for mercy...:shifty:
IMO you cant really say that one thing or the other is the best in WHFB. You can have your favorites, ofcourse, but every little thing in WHFB completes it. If its magic, close combat, moving, shooting, skirmishing, siegeing etc etc etc. Put all those things together and you have WHFB in all its glory.
Think I came a little off-topic there ^^
lol, yeah i think you did :w00t: . but I like magic. but also close combat. CC is fun when you have a great big monster smashing into light armoured unit! then there will be totaly massacre and blood all over the place! :xOriginally Posted by King Alriks Bodyguard
