Default Re: Pinning down a fix

But the Occult Strike is not a spell at all. The Staff spell creates a staff which is "an occult weapon". Using it as such is making an attack, not casting a spell.

I disagree with this interpretation of the rules. The spell is made to create a staff. The attack that one can make with the staff isn't a spell at all (with no gestures or incantations, for instance -- I don't regard pointing a weapon as a magical gesture).

I'm pretty sure we've discussed this before, so if my argument didn't convince you then, I reckon it won't convince you now. Anyway, we've rather strayed from issues regarding pinning. I suppose we should drop this derail.
