hey,, there are items/abilities such as the high elf banner and archanon that allow them to "treat" difficult terrain as open,,

my question is, does this include for line of sight etc?

no. as they all state 'for movement'.

looking ar archanons it says

"Archanon treats difficult terrain as open ground, though the unit he is with suffers normal penalties"

nothing about for movement..

i know using him is cheesy enough so i dont plan on hiding him behind terrain and use spells its just for determining wether i can see for charges

pg. 8: line of sight
pg. 16: difficult terrain

difficult terrain only matters for movement.

open terrain can block LOS. e.g. hills

hmmm i guess so,, dont have my rulebook at hand but i was thinking more on the lines of "seeing 2 inches through difficult terrain" effect being negated but your point seems valid :) thought id find out before using him to stop arguments lol

you don't see 2" through difficult terrain. you can see 2" into an out of forrests. no matter whether that forrest is open, difficult or very difficult terrain.

For example water terrain can be difficult or impassible without hindering LoS, the two really aren't connected
