And an attack test must not necessary always inflict damage, take disarm for example.
I don't consider Disarm an attack either. They're both debuff talents that goes against the targets PD.

Just like Acrobatic Defense is a buff talent that goes against the opponents PD.

Re: Astral Sensing Redux

Material objects between the caster and the target will not prevent a spell from reaching the target unless they block the magician’s line of sight.

Re: Astral Sensing Redux
