During an Evade action, does the monsters action count as an actual monster attack? One of us had the Elder Ward item which grants n extra die during a monster attack. So does it grant the die during an Evade action as well?
The RR on page 8, Evade Check, says
Any effects generated from this selection are part of the
investigator’s evade check.
This to me suggests that the damage generated by the monster is part of the Evade Check and not an Attack.
On the other hand, what did the App say? If it mentions you took damage from the attack, that would suggest you could use the Elder Ward.
