Re: Eversor Assassin - Feedback required

I think it's for the best if we leave the commander = leader mindset. Even the current commanders makes much more sense if we view them simply as heroes. So...on the Eversor. Frankly, all of mentioned options could work. Having the Eversor on the same level as Vindicare (and maybe pushing GK libby t...

Re: Grey Knight Librarian's Smite

For most people, double jump would qualify as being able to use 2 jumps in one engagement. Pretty much like dis. Hence ASM are a "double jump unit" straight out of da gate. Fair enough, if you define it like that. I would still argue that 10s is enough time for your opponent's counterinit...

Re: The Codex WIP

Good job. I'm impartial to the implementation as long as the info is there and is easily readable.

Another thing - is it possible to display info about melee splash damage? Which weapons do it and for how much damage?

That is true. They can also double jump at level 2, unlike raptors which needs level 3.

What are peoples thoughts on the FC's terminator armor?

Re: Vote for new Librarian Force Barrier

Great, Force Barrier changes!

The first one still seems more flexible, area denial, cap stopping etc. But I can't really decide unless I see the second variant in action.

Are there any videos? I couldn't find anything in the twitch channel.

Re: GK Global Silence

I meant the energy drain for canticle (wargear), not for excommunication (global). So the new canticle would regen energy of allies and drain energy of enemies in some area. And excommunication would prevent using abilities whatsoever, but also in some area. I also support making the AoE easily dist...

Re: The kommando knob for a sneaky git he sure can gib and o

You call them nerfs, I call them balance improving changes.

Orks are still good, maybe still too good.


edit: As for the rocket launcher - detectors are must, problem is the launcher comfortably outranges most detectors (40 range vs 30). If something, I would nerf the range on that thing.

Also, seeing as it probably tops the list of most annoying abilities I don't see the point having it on CoA as well (energy regen alone makes it very strong). Maybe the canticle could be changed that in addition to energy regen of allies it would also drain energy of enemies. It would have similar ...

Re: The force commander and his clothes

Heavy infantry armour in T3 is quite a bit worse than commander armour. Almost anything at that point does some bonus damage against it (plasma twice as much!). If you have leveled FC and want survivability, don't bother with termie armour. But it's worth to mention that TFC has some ranged options,...

Re: The kommando knob for a sneaky git he sure can gib and o

Yeah, MB with force field is crazy good. Immunity to almost anything (even to being tied up by melee) and 70% ranged resistance on top of it. Good luck forcing him off before he blows up any lighter or heavy but already damaged vehicle.

And people are complaining about tracking FoS... :?

In my opinion Chaos already has more terminator variants than it should (exactly by three). So a firm no to another.

That's not how basic regeneration works. For armour upgrades etc., you would be right, but not for the base regen. * Terminator health regeneration from 0.5 to 1.0 This, as written, means the termies health regen is changed from 0,5 HP/s to 1 HP/s. Which directly conflicts with how Caeltos explained...

I'd like to ask about the termies regen issue (if it was resolved).

Is the regen going to be 1/0,75/1,25 HP/s, like the patch notes indicate, or 10/7,5/12,5 HP/s, like described later on?
