When a character uses the RENDING SWORD, a wounded model suffers not one But D3 wounds. If the wound is against a regular rank-and-file model in H2H, do the extra wounds count towards CR?! If so, is there a cap on the CR?!
they dont count towards CR but they will if he is in a challenge and in the challenge the cap is 5 more than the models wounds.
lets agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours are
Exactly as Grimgor said. It's a wonderful item against Ogres, but in most cases it simply isn't worth it.

98% of the population actually believes these stupid statistics. If you're part of the 2% of humanity with a brain, put this in your profile.
I would disagree, actually, I think it's still worth the points regardless of whether you're facing ogres or not.
Every single army in the game has someone in need of a good rending, and the fact that it allows up to 5 points of overkill in a challenge is priceless. As an example, my Tzeentch Exhalted got trapped in the middle of the field, all alone, and got charged by 20 beastmen. Fully ranked up, they had outnumber as well as a standard and two ranks on me. A quick challenge later, I pick up a quick 6 points of CR (5 for overkill, one for the guy's wound) and they start running.
Isolated incidents do not prove points, they only illustrate them... give it a try yourself, I was very pleasantly surprised.
