Assassin Feature Assassin's Shroud

You cause invisible shrouds to settle on your foe. At your command, the shrouds reveal the target’s weak points to your keen gaze.

At-Will        Shadow
Free Action      Close burst 10

Target: One enemy you can see in the burst

Effect: You subject the target to your shroud. If any of your shrouds are already on the target, you subject it to an additional shroud, up to a maximum of four. The shrouds last until you use this power against a different enemy or until the end of the encounter.
    Before you make an attack roll against the target, you choose to invoke either all your shrouds on it or none of them. If you invoke your shrouds, the attack deals 1d6 damage per shroud, minus one shroud if the attack misses, and all your shrouds then vanish from the target. This damage roll never benefits from bonuses to damage rolls, and is in addition to the attack’s damage, if any.
    Level 11: 1d6 + 3 damage per shroud.
    Level 21: 1d6 + 6 damage per shroud.

Special: You can use this power only on your turn and only once per turn.
