Ok, I tried searching, and looking for the faq/errata to no avail (seriously where are they?)
This might sound lame but i really need an answer.
Can you (WE) treesing a unit (dmg version) if its in combat in the woods?
I doesn't say, un-engaged, but neither does it say can be cast into combat.
In my group you can, I even did it in a tournament. But nothing official.
I would say no it can't. Every spell that can be cast into combat specifically says, "can be cast into combat" or something similar. Since treesinging doesn't say this, and no errata has said it can, I would have to say no.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
So that would mean I can't stand in the woods waiting for my opponent to charge me, stand and shoot (im a treeman in this situation), and then in my phase zap the living crap out of them before crushing them in combat?
My problem with cannot be cast into combat, is that you target the woods, and not the unit.
I just played a tournament and nobody said anything about it, but now Im having doubts.
I would hate it if I played illegal.
can someone link me the errata? I can't seem to find it.
I've not faced that specific example myself before, but I would read it as follows:
On being charged you can use the Strangle-root attack to stand-and-shoot (although normal rules on being more than half the charging unit's move distance apply).
However, once you're engaged in melee, you're in combat and can't use Tree-singing - the rule on bound spells states that it's cast just like other spells, and as previously noted, there's nothing to suggest that there's any exception to the normal rules in the spell's description.
A complete list of official errata/FAQs is here:
The Wood Elf-specific one is here in PDF form:
Where I play, units in combat are still affected by AOE effects. Tree singing is more like an AOE than a target spell, (but with the woods as the Area, not a Diameter). So I'd say not being able to target into combat does not apply.
