Kress Power Attacks the same dread wraith and misses. He tries again and hits it for 42 points. Igor takes the opportunity to strike it. He hits it for 48 points, destroying it.

Kress switches to the other Dread Wraith and would hit, if it weren't incorporeal. He tries again. He hits it for 40 points. He attacks yet again and hits it for 44 points.
