    This is where that would fit.

    Correct. This is the way IFT has always worked for attacks - in most rulesets, not just 5E. As Moon Wizard mentions, it's due to the possibility of re-using the attack against another target (or having multiple targets), where the effects may apply, or not. Hence the original roll total is not modified, but the attack value against a matching creature type is modified.

    Aha. Right, I can see where that would be needed. Jolly good; nothing to see here.

    This isn't a Advanced Effects thing but how effects in general are handled it seems. The order of the keywords seem to matter.

    DMG:3d6 critical,necrotic

    That worked for me, having critical first.

    The effect you are looking for is DMG: 3d6, necrotic, critical. It's a lower case 'd' rather than an upper case one. I've also tested critical, necrotic and necrotic, critical and it still works the same way - at least it does when not using the extension (I didn't test on the extension).

    If you want actual "life steal" I would set up a spell on the actions tab with the above code. That keeps it separate from the other damage so the dm can control-drag it from chat to the PCs wounds to heal the PC, if that's what you actually want to do.

    edit: BTW, this extension is AWESOME.

    Ah, I missed the comma behind the damage, didn't catch that.

    This is why im not a big fan of string parsed options. To picky!

    Thank you all oh so much, it worked like a charm. Added with this extention, cause i dunno where to add otherwise. But it works which is good!

    Just to see if i got this straight - i set up a heal spell for 3d6? But it would actually throw this dices and the amount probly wount be the same as the damage? Or am i missing something?

    No, it would be a damage spell, DMG:3d6,necrotic applied to the target that you would use manually when you crit. Don't put anything on the weapon itself. When you roll it, the DM would have to control-drag it (control makes it negative)from the chat window to the players wound (or temp) box so that the damage the creature takes and the "life steal"(heal) the PC receives are the same. I don't know of any other way to make the same roll apply to two different actions/effects, which is what I believe you are trying to do here.

    Also, I cant figure out how to make a weapon heal[self] on a crit. Don't know if it can be done.
