Can someone please help me out with this effect? Lost for the wording of it. Plus is it only used for working out who get the first attack?? -- Pstarky

- That appears to have been left over from a copy from the SRD. --The Krit 01:10, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
initiative and casting spells
The note about timestops is wrong. There is no initiative for casting a spell until the spell is cast, spellscript is triggered and function SignalEvent(EventSpellCastAt is signalized on target. This will trigger initiative for the first time, so initiative has no effect on casters.
Ranged attacks works similar, since you dont need to come closer in order to attack whether you win or lose initiative you attack first.
Also there are situations where initiative doesnt work even in melee which is when you ambush a creature from corner - in this situation the creature is wandering around location as she can't see you, but you get close to her before AI tells her to attack you and therefore you can get sneak attack and you attack first no matter of initiative. The creatur turns around and attack back when the first attack roll is made but no sooner. Also invisible/hidden character attack first no matter of initiative. --ShaDoOoW 12:30, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
