Plus Death Knights bond, so they have three activations as well.

Re: The Book of Granite Guardians

Can you use "Gain High Ground" on Heavy Snow?

Re: The Book of Granite Guardians

I would say no.
The power states you can overcome some height cost but nothing about terrain cost.

This is why I ask. Heavy snow hurts everything, but it hurts these guys really badly.

Yeah...I looked at it again, Sadly I think they can't take height on heavy snow with "Gain High Ground"

That's a little disappointing, but understandable.

I disagree...if they can legally land on the space (and not climb over anything more than 4 height to get there)...they can move "up to one space" (not movement allowance).

Heavy snow just sits on top of them after they move.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Re: The Book of Granite Guardians

Does the power say ignore terrain effects?
Do what the card says, not what it does not.

I would happily house rule it to allow for heavy snow traversal, but it honestly doesn't allow for it based on the wording of the card. If they had intended for it, they would included a snippet that said they don't need to account for heavy snow/ice when using "Gain High Ground". As Tornado says, do what the card says, not what what it does not say.

Let It Snow

Both rules for heavy snow (moving onto it and landing on it) state you must count one space as two spaces, so yeah by RAW, GGs can't GHG to Heavy Snow or Slippery Ice. The card would've said something like hex instead of space.

~Dysole, unsure if that was intended or there probably would've been an FAQ already
