Weak Arc Attacks Using Ranged Weapons

Recommended Posts

Worded from the rule book itself.

"If the character is attacking a weak arc, the attack gains an additional black die."

That is all it says about attacking weak arcs.  The book says nothing about having to be inside the weak arc itself.  It felt almost like cheating; however, if we take the rules on weak arcs literally, then basically it means that any ranged weapon, as long as you are x(your range) nodes/arcs away from the enemy's weak arc; and no matter how nonsensical it may be; you still roll the extra black die.  That is how we were playing it, but I wanted to make sure that this was the correct way to handle weak arcs with ranged weapons.

I read that as meaning that if the character is standing in a weak arc, they gain a black die. You can still shoot the boss to death with soul arrows, but you need to be at least vaguely on the right side.

The distance doesn't matter at all, but you always only attack the side of the arc you are standing in (minimum on a node along the arc line basically).
