    Quote from Serwyn: “Interesting update. It may open interesting builds. Do you say it is the final update because it is the last of 2019 or because there won't be any update anymore before fab ? Edit : Found the answer. ” For anyone else who doesn't know reading, there's one end of year generally point only balance update for armies that aren't currently getting redesigned into a new book. That update is now complete for this year apart from any formatting or typographical errors that come up. P…

    I mean I don't think you're wrong but hopefully it's more an 'each to their own' thing now. FG do have their own plusses too. I think ultimately in a new full book FG kindred might have something more unique to offer it's unit like the bladdancer kindred does (e.g. +1 Dis or +2 March rather than the BDs swiftstride). But for now hopefully cheap for a core unit that can get spears / blades, command, and leaders with magic item synergies (eg hunters honour) will hopefully balance things out better…

    I feel like the drop to Forest Guardian Kindred is significant. I can see FG BSB with Hunters Honour being a somewhat of a thing again, esp combined with Essence change. Could be wrong.

    One thing to keep in mind, which Snarkhunter kind of said but maybe bears being a bit more explicit, is that moving points from Magic Items (eg Titanic Might / Whirlwind Blades ) onto mundane ones (sylvan blades / lances) opens up some new item build possibilities, and therefore helps address one of the common complaints from SE - that our special items are largely unused. I'm not sure exactly what effect that will have, but making more room for our items on our characters is another way to addr…

    Quote from RomanRagnorak: “I am greatly perplexed why a sylvan lance costs more than a regular lance - it doesn't really affect me, since I just use a regular lance instead, but I'm curious why that decision was made. ” It's because the Sylvan Lance has a synergy with Titanic Might (as it retains its +1AP when not charging, which works well with Titanic Mights strength buff). I dont personally agree with this change, but that is the reasoning. Overall this update is very positive for SE.

  • I would find that hard but I think he would go ok with 9+ Heath Riders with Predator Pennant

  • +1 to Yes and Yes. Also, i believe you can get fast and official rules answers here: the-ninth-age.com/community/in…-short-answer-version-2-0 If that helps for the future.

  • Quote from Fleshbeast: “Quote from SmithF: “I feel that the elven part of the list is at a very decent spot currently, the only unit that I keep putting back on the shelf is the Wild Huntsmen: I know they hit like trucks but I'd rather have them be cheaper and more easier to control at the expense of hitting power. As it stands, I'll always prefer a unit of 10 Heath Riders with Predator Banner over the equivalent points in Wild Huntsmen. ” Peaked my curiosity... Would you consider the trade off …

  • Quote from Firthunands91: “Well, recently I got around 10 games with SE, and I'm really pleased with them. I don't know if anyone will care about my opinion but these are my experiences and thoughts. ” On the contrary, direct gameplay experience like this is exactly the kind we most need to hear. Thank you for providing your experience.

  • Quote from Chack: “Quote from Hachiman Taro: “FG Kindred +1 Discipline would be nice in a revised book environment, and give him an interesting niche, now that Army strengths and weaknesses aren't so literal anymore. And / or the option of vanguard and +1 Adv ... but for now we're stuck to potential price changes. ” Or enable 1 unit of FG to be upgraded to special with +1Di,Bodyguard(Forest guard characters),+1 Str,+1Ap.+1DefI would really like an elitè forest guard unit (not necessarily with th…

  • And it synergises (stacks) very well with the Hereditary. Forest Guard suffered a fair bit as a blocking unit when we lost the Banner of Amryl (extra Fight in Extra ranks was great on them), Hunters Honour went up in price so it doesn't sit so comfortably on a Chief who wants some defensive kit (ie, a Forest Guardian who wants magic armour rather than a Blade Dancer who doesn't), and also Forest Guardian lost a point of Armour in one of the updates without dropping points in recompense. Hence wh…

  • I'm.not sure if 0 uses from X00 lists is technically data, but it can be powerful information

  • We've asked for light troops on Unicorn A LOT haha

  • While I agree about a lot of this feedback, I think it's important to keep expectations in check. Getting a data based process where the fact these things are largely unused gets recognised is a big initial step. If the reductions are conservative to start its not what we would ideally hope but it is a start in the right direction. I have argued for larger special item reductions internally but they are unlikely to suddenly change by orders of magnitude from 5pts-ish, if at all. Also, I just stu…

  • Just a little bump. RT would like to have a summary report of community feedback on Tuesday. So if you have something to say, preferably based in play experience from the new beta changes, now is the time

  • Hello there leaf stalkers! As you may know, SE (along with other forest hating factions) recently received a Beta points update for some units. It's been out in the wild for a few weeks now, chance for many of us to get some games in, maybe even a tournament! We had a thread for initial community impressions, but now we would like to hear peoples experiences after having put the updated entries on the table and tried them out a bit more. What new combos have you found? What worked better, what d…
