Ringing Blow

[+1] Ringing Blow - Standard Attack
Deal 2d10 damage to target creature, and that creature is dazed until the end of your next turn.

Now, it seems that the weapon talents are supposed to be more powerful than your average talent...but this one is kinda ridiculous. Maybe make it, like, [-3] or something? Or even just make the damage 1d10 or even 1d8?

Summoned weapons are supposed to have abilities that cost 2-2.5 less pips than they should (to make up for the fact that getting them costs 7 pips). So this is supposed to be slightly stronger than a normal -1 move. Let's compare:

[-1] Force Bolt - Standard Attack
Deal 1d10 damage to target creature and that creature is dazed until the end of its next turn.

The major difference, other than the extra d10 (which does seem a bit more powerful than it should be but not by much) is really that ringing blow dazes the enemy until the end of your next turn, which makes dazelock a serious possibility. I have a feeling it's supposed to be the creature's next turn, but it wasn't caught when they went through and made corrections. But other than that, It seems like a move that's only slightly above the curve, when you account that the move costs 7 pips to earn in the first place.

What Im saying is the 2d10 damage ALONE is an insane [-1] talent, and the daze makes it more so. I could understand if it were half of 2d10 damage + daze for [+1], however.

Recall something: You have to spend 7 pips before this.
(Also this sort of thing would be more in the 'ask a simple question' thread.

But Logan, the designated scale for that 7-pip cost is that every move costs 2 pips less than it should. So if this is supposed to be a [-1] talent, it is strictly better than a nearly identical [-1] talent, by a full 5.5 extra damage (on average). That seems rather heavy.

(The rest of this was written before Logan posted)

Oh, wow, I misremembered the full compliment of what daze did.

I think 2d10 would be valid as a [-1] (remember, stab is 1d10 at [+1]), and Force Bolt is 1d10 and dazed at [-1], but yeah, 2d10+dazed is pretty big for a [-1].

Hm...half of 2d10 actually has a lower average damage than 1d10 (5.25 vs. 5.5, which is more noticeable than expected), Though it does give the move a little bit of flair, and the extra d10 can activate a special too...So that would probably work. So what do you think of suggesting this to the developers:

[+1] Ringing Blow - Standard Attack
Deal half of 2d10 damage to target creature, and that creature is dazed until the end of your next turn.
