      In case you guys would like to use challenge on every character of your party (since that spell is amazing) do note that it's POINTLESS to cast CHALLENGE on an ENEMY already under CHALLENGE by one of your character in your party. 1 challenge cast = 1 enemy. You can cast 2 or even 3/4 challenges (considering the size of your party) on the same enemy but only the first character to cast challenge on that enemy will gain the bonus on the death of that enemy, otherwise it would be too OP and that spell is already too strong, lmao. They reduced the cost from 1 AP to 0 AP. And the spell was already OP when it costed 1 AP...

        It seems the 20% bonus damage is only additive. A piercing attack on the Doctor that did about 11000 damage without Challenge, then did 11300 with it (won on a minion). I reloaded and repeated the test 3 times, each time Challenge only increased the final damage about 300. This was on Tactician, and the boss only had a bit over 10k HP so it was still a 1HKO.

          No longer requires any AP to cast as of Definitive Edition, making it a great skill to cast on dying/low health enemies for a free buff when you kill them.

            Can this be cast on allied summons? It'd be bonkers if it could. Executioner + kill a totem for a cheap heal, buff, and AP refund.
