    Quote from Ipower: “I was in ACS when they moved the raptor spirit from 65->80 and we were never given a proper justification for it. We did specifically ask if it could go back down the 15pts but apparently it was taken 2 times more than the threshold in the tournament data (as the threshold was 5% i'd love to know who??) so we got told no. ” I think it is really a shame. It was taken because it was a good option. I guess mostly because the other options were bad in comparison, not because rapt…

    Quote from Ipower: “ Also a tiny change that I'd been pushing for for a long time, the cuatl discipline restrictions are finally gone. Could 2.05 be the return of the double Cuatl? (master of reality+grasp, evocation definitely as one, pyro/alch the other? or maybe protean?) ” Woah thats actually pretty big change! Well done! I don't think anyone noticed it, buts that's going to be a big deal for the quatl. Still very very expensive to by 2 quatls for use master of reality with grasp of the immo…

    Quote from marcema: “Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “@marcema Unfair? Perhaps not. Useless for sure, since they are so expensive there is not a single decent and viable build for both Warlord and Ancient. Entire charge range point is moot because how flawed and underperforming those characters are. At least that's what I have noticed going by the tournament lists. Maybe Glory+Spirit could be of some use, but even back then it was a rarity on it's own. Also on that last part. Come on, 2 characters and …

    Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Quote from filosoraptor: “All the changues are restricted to a point adjustment, or can we expect some rules or stats modification?? ” I'm pretty sure only points adjustment happens this patch, at least for our Army Book. ” I think they said that all books only get price adjustments in 205

    Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Quote from Palinux: “Without knowing, I assume that is has to have gotten a point drop, since it went from used very often to never at all. I don’t think it was too strong(externally) but it was just better than the other options. 65 pts would be a dream come true ” Wouldn't call it even close to being used very often.If I recall correctly Caiman Ancient was still played pretty rarely (only with Spirit still), like not even 10%? Warlord was at better position, but still…

    Quote from Red88: “with the new Deth Cheater ... its harder to build a strong little Carnosaur.. ” I read somewhere in the general thread that Death Cheater has a typo, so it should still give +1 AS

    About the lists for Aroscon and distribution of armies. I dont think you can read anything about the popularity of SA from them. Aroscon has an overrepresentation of EoS, OG, DH and WDG. There are also 0 DE, 1 KoE and 1 DL as examples. The tournament has various cards which you can play each round that had major impact on the game, which I think skews which armies are popular.

    Quote from Eymuster: “I agree with @Red88 100% on that it should be a part of basic telephaty. with basic couatl+engine setup, is it really so much better than extra range valor on HBE or wadering familiar on DE Oracle? Symbiosis the extra discipline should allow couatl to cast spells from other wizards with link. Which makes a lot of sense. And fits the name symbiosis better. ” Can really only say +1 to this. Merging symbiosis with telepathic link probably wouldn't be to much to ask for. The mi…

    I like the divination Quatl with symbiosis together with Arcane book skink priest and stygiosaur with mystic traveller. Gives you so much diversity and the +2 to cast on the priest is very hard combined with +2 to cast from Quatl. The Best spells for Stygio are Beast/Fury/Swarm, so no worries about the hereditary. If you take the Channel Item on the Quatl you will also end up with Channel 5! Disclaimer: Its very magicheavy, but in the right list it can be brutal.

    Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “Quote from Palinux: “[...] I do think that pyro/Alchemy with essense still lives though ” Could you elaborate on that part please? That build still seems like a strong, viable option. Well rounded too. ” running divination seems good, but so does Alchemy/Pyro with essense,, Was just my intention to say that divination is not the only build for the Quatl, even if I think that divination (with support mages) can do basicly the same as pyromancy can alone when you look at …

    Quote from Ipower: “Think of what you actually get with that trade off. Currently the damage heavy selection is 3 missiles and 2 buffs on slann and an extra missile and buff from priest. Switching to essence pyro drops the slann from 5 spells to 4 and gives me either 3 missiles and a buff or 4 missiles. In an army which is almost entirely combat based one situational combat buff is not a good idea. ” I dont think pyro is needed on the Quatl when running divination. There are so many ways of gett…

    I think you are still forced to use the movement for the charge which has then highest chance of success, which overrides the normal fly rule. But I could also be wrong in this case

    @marcema its obviously clear if you know the intention of the rule The fly addition makes perfectly sense to add, to avoid people from charging with the lowest movement possible and purposely fail the charge. (And I guess that this is also not allowed??) But I have gotten my doubts sorted out, since now I know then intention of the Frenzy rule.

    Yes Laroop, that how I am reading the rule. It is not clear from the rules that “use lowest Adv” is overruled by “if flying, use the highest”. It is only clear to anyone who has played earlier editions of the game. I dont read the fly pointer as not applying to the charge, actually I read it as only applying to the charge, since the charge is what is refered to in the pointer. i guess it can be read in 3 different ways then
