Related to [thread=24609342]this question[/thread] (about Elisa's "Torrent of Fire"):

Bastian's base Special ability allows him to make one or more attacks.

Question 1: Can these attacks be boosted using Special cards and or Attack (fist) cards?
Question 2: If I play a card to boost this, does the boost apply to all the attacks, or just a single one of them?

Sure, same goes for bastian, each special attack can be boosted with numerical cards with the special symbol. Fists only cards won't work for a special attack.

Remember each attack is resolved separately, so each boost card can only improve one attack only.

For Bastian this is true, but do keep in mind that when boosting an area effect you have two choices:

a) you can boost the whole effect (when same boost card works for for every square of the area effect) = is very powerful with Elisa's torrent of fire, for instance

b) you can boost just one part (one target) of the attack. Which is sometimes required when area of effect contains friendlies.

As an extension to part (b): if you use multiple cards to boost can they boost against different targets, or must they be 'concentrated' on the same target?
