I was wondering if the impact hits caused by the Stegadon War Spear were magical. Personally, I think they are. It's caused by the magic item, and is altering the stegs attacks.

What do you think?

No, not magical.

Just like attacks made by skeletons in the magic phase are not magical.

I don't get where you're getting the skeletons from?

The attacks are technically coming from the Steg War Spear, as it adds an extra d6 to the d6+1, wouldn't that be magical, since it's a magical wep?

hmm thats a sticky one. i could imagine it going either way. maybe only the extra d6 (from the warspear) is magical although that makes everything more complicated.

It wouldn't be ALL the impact hits certainly. It depends on the exact wording of the item for me.

If it said "Lance, 2d6+1 impact hits (or d6 impact hits)" I would say those were magical, but I'm prety sure it doesn't say that. If it is just "increases the stegs impact hits to 2d6+1" then they aren't magical because the Steg isn't.

They are not magical impact hits as its not the spear that does the impact but the Stegadon.

The exact wording is:

"Lance. In addition, the bearer's mount inflicts 2D6+1 impact hits rather than the normal 1D6+1."

I don't believe they are intended to be magical.

Not magical impact hits, but attacks from the spear itself (by the skink) are, obviously, magical.

its called a spear, and yet is a lance. wtf. at any rate, i would also say that the hits arent magical, basically the hits arent caused by the lance/spear.

^--My view also. Otherwise you could argue that the skvenpelt banner causes frenzy and the +1 attack form it must be magical.

Ouch, you make me cringe Spirit.

In deed the impact hits are not magical... just in case it needed to be said once more ;)

The impact hits are not magical, but the attacks made by the skink using the spear are magical. That's how I interpretate it anyway.
