  • Spending willpower in the war form

    Can werewolves spend willpower in the Garou war form? I haven't seen anything saying yes or no, but I would think that exercising will would be very difficult in the bloody haze that occurs in the warform. Spending willpower would imply a focus which would seem rather difficult when the mind is almost in a frenzied state

    Yes, they can. There's no such restriction noted for the form.

    Spending willpower isn't necessarily a cerebral act. Sometimes it's just trying really, really hard.

      Good point. That being said, some of the more powerful prey, like high rank spirits, would require spending willpower in the war form just to give them a fighting chance

        The CofD violence system (and the NWoD combat system before it) are built on the idea that violence is scary and people will spend Willpower if the want to survive, let alone win. We're not going to take away a fighting form's ability to spend Willpower in a fight.

        And to correct the OP, 2nd edition doesn't have a war form. Gauru is the killing form. It's highly unsuited to most aspects of warfare.
