    Book of Hoeth question

    Hey guys,

    First off I'm noob to WFB (just finished my HE army today) and have a question about the BoH and irresistible force, so apologies in advance for whatever.


    Lets say you give your mage a Book of Hoeth. You then try to cast a spell that requires 8+ to cast.

    You use 3 power dice to cast. You score 2 2 3 = 7 (normally a fail). Because of the Book, you cast with irresistible force. However, you have failed to equal 8 or greater.

    Despite this, this rule book states that when you achieve irresistible force, your spell casts automatically.

    So does the spell go off in this case?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    No, book of hoeth still requires a succesful cast. If you can't meet the minimum, it doesn't go off. If you do meet that minimum, it is cast with IF.

    Indeed he is right. Remember that you add your wizard level to the score, so in this case it would actually go off.

    Regards,
    Wow, I spent ages searching the rule book for where that is stated, and was pretty close to asking you for a page ref!

    Thanks, I didn't even realise.

    There's no double 1 miscast in the 8th, so 1,1,5,6 + the mages lvl is greater then 12, and therefore the spell goes off with IF.
