Overwhelming force trap
warlord attack 1

Trigger: an ally within the burst makes a melee basic attack

Target: the triggering ally

Effect: "The target uses one of his or her melee at-will attack powers instead of making a melee basic attack. If the attack hits, the subject of the target's attack is also dazed until the end of the target's next turn."

Overwhelming force trap is a 1st-level warlord encounter attack power. It allows an ally to substitute a melee at-will attack power in place of a melee basic attack—as part of an opportunity attack, for example. If the ally's power hits, it also dazes its target.[Dr384:54]

Overwhelming force trap was introduced in "Class Acts: The Commando Warlord" by Robert J. Schwalb in Dragon #384.
