    Does anyone know if HLA/HLD have a chance of affecting every target hit with a Whirlwind, or does it only affect the main target hit?

    If i had to venture a guess, i'd say the main target.

    I only would guess this, because hit spell only hits the main target, and not the area.
     
  4. Yes, both have the chance to go off individually on each target within range. Whirlwind does a separate check on each target to determine a hit or a miss. It is not an area attack, it is a weapon special, so those rules do not apply.

    Seconding this. You can have any hit spell go off equal to the number of enemies hit too.

    I'm pretty sure it has the same % chance to hit every target effected just like a hit spell and hit area effect. I know the hit spells work at what ever % they are, but I've never really checked to see if every other target can be effected with the HLA/HLD. I do know that it's a 100% success chance of hitting every target around if you hit your main target which is pretty deadly in a grinder fight.
