    How to hit with area burst etc..

    If an area of effect is not perception hit but normal, how to hit.
    Do you use the dodge Def or like old d&d like touch attack.

    Because it is not logical to hit on somebodies active Def, because you don't have to hit the target, just in the general area.

    Area attacks don't require a to-hit roll. They always hit everyone in that area. The Dodge save determines how badly they're hit.

    This extra allows an effect that normally works on a single target to affect an area. No attack check is needed; the effect simply fills the designated area, based on the type of modifier. Potential targets in the area are permitted a Dodge resistance check (DC 10 + effect rank) to avoid some of the effect (reflecting ducking for cover, dodging out of the way, and so forth). A successful resistance check reduces the Area effect to half its normal rank against that target (round down, minimum of 1 rank).
