Knack for success
half-elf racial utility

Target: self or one ally within the burst

Effect: "Choose one of the following:

"The target makes a saving throw.

"The target shifts up to 2 squares as a free action.

"The target gains a +2 power bonus to his or her next attack roll made before the end of his or her next turn.

"The target gains a +4 power bonus to his or her next skill check made before the end of his or her next turn."[HotFK:252]

Knack for success is a racial encounter power available to half-elves at 1st level who select the Knack for Success racial trait.

1st level half-elves may choose either Dilettante or Knack for Success as a racial trait. Dilettante grants as an encounter power any one 1st-level at-will attack power from a class the half-elf does not possess.[PH:42]

Character optimization is generally split between selecting this trait for added benefits, and dilettante for flexibility. In general, this trait is chosen if the at-will powers available from other classes are unappealing and/or sub-optimal (because they require a different primary statistic for the attack roll, or because they require a different weapon or implement).
