Pardon if this is obvious,
but which type of dice (base, skill, gear) should be adjusted in your dice pool for Talents that specifically state a modification to attacks?
ie "Your attack rolls are modified by +1..." or "...the attack is modified by –2."
I'm guessing you would adjust the skill dice since attacks are based on either Melee or Marksmanship?
As I read the rules, according to CLOSE COMBAT (page 90 in the Players handbook), an attack roll is a skill check. "When you attack in close combat, you use the MELEE skill
". Then, on MODIFICATION to skills (page 47 in the PHB, page 45 in the Swe version), modification gives you more or fewer skill
dice. Since attack is a skill check and you modify the number of skill
dice, I'd say you're correct.
