Rather then a spec proc, would it not (and this IS just a question cause i
am looking into this as well) be easier to modify the AGGR bits code or
make yet a new flag that it checks for in the PULSE VIOLENCE section that
will count the # of ppl fighting and pick a random number, unless its
blind or they have improved invis or something like that?

This would be a better mob prog than a spec proc (I have coded many things
and beleive it or not STILL have LOTS of prolems with spec procs)

Happy Holidays to all!!!
