Why does the shooting profile of the Celestial Lance have Spirit Shatter if that rule's effect only takes place in close combat on the turn the model charges?
...or should the rule for Spirit Shatter say something along the lines of "when a character/MC is reduced to 0 wounds by either a shooting attack or an attack made by the weilder on the turn he charges into combat"? That still sounds a little rough to read but is a bit more specific about when the rule takes place. I get that someone's gunna blow up at 0 wounds because of this and that's cool, but it seems the 'how' is a bit muddy in the wording that you presently have.
EDIT: I feel like if you took SS off the shooting profile, deleted the first comma, and changed the "and AP-" to "at AP-" it would make a lot more sense. I guess either that or make it sound like it works for the shooting profile as well..?
Ironically enough, the Celestial Lance is the only part of these rules I didn't make. Spirit Shatter is a direct, word for word quote from the Iyanden Supplement, where the weapon was first introduced. Since it's where I got the idea for this character from, I decided to give him his weapon straight from the book.
It certainly reads in the text of Spirit Shatter that it should only be on the melee profile, as it only works for On-The-Charge, but the weapon's profile was originally written with SS in the shooting also.
