I'm wondering if CAPs should be considered in the AP Spent Check? For example, if firing costs me 3 AP and I buff it with 2 CAPs, do I compare the AP Spent Number I draw with 3 or 5?
No... you compare only with the non CAP APs used. It's in the rules. So 3 in this case.
You can also use CAPs to bring down the APs spent on a check. So if it cost 3 APs to fire, you could use 2 CAPs and your APs used is 1 AP, so you'd check on the 1.
