Do monsters have their attributes even if they aren't listed in the Info Window in the app? Example, Master Barghest shows Night Stalker on its card but it's not listed in the Info window in the app. I'm assuming it's implied that the Master Barghest DOES have Night Stalker and therefore adds a brown die to defense when attacked at range.

Anyone else have insight on this? And thanks!

We play that they have their card abilities.

The info window usually just adds to the monsters’ abilities.

If it's passive skills, add 'em yourself - if they are activation skills, then the app will let you know when to use 'em.

That's what I thought and is how I've been playing it. Thanks for the feedback!

Passive skills apply at all times. Active skills require an action to use.

If you look at the back of the Barghest card for instance you can see what I'm talking about. The Night Stalker ability has no activation symbols, and thus is always active passively.

The Howl ability however has a turned arrow symbol to represent that it takes an action, and thus must be actively used. The same thing applies to abilities that require spending a surge to activate, like the Zombie's Disease ability.
