That one was actually an accident. The Black Knight up on the tower however....
I'm slowly developing an obsession with learning about Dark Souls.
There's so much stuff...

So THAT is what giving that amber I gave to that smithtard did... I see. Oh I can buy Shards there? Well, time to +5 EVERYTHING
God help my, I already think about NG+. And than theres DS2 and DS3...

now I can't help but think about which armor to upgrade... halp!
this is like a monk-ish nightmare..
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 12:12
Alright. Plan. Get the Elite Knight Armour. Upgrade that shit. Get back to the Asylum (should've done that before Blighttown. Damnit). When back, get some augmenting Pyromancy stuff. Should've known that it doesn't require stats!
Earl Bishop

It scales in stats
That's what the letter grade is
How well it scales with that stat
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 12:23
but getting those 2 buff spells still worth it thio
not expensive soulwise too
since im mostly blocking I dont roll most of the time anyway.. so spending that 2k souls and like 2 levels for another miracle slot...?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 12:39
on the other hand, it sounds terrible. really terrible reading the wiki.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 17 2017 13:20
if you're planning to keep blocking everything i also recommend investing in a good shield

Jup, upgrading that as well. Grass thingy currently.

@FarseerVeraenthis
May 17 2017 14:54
well, I imagine that in Matched Play you have to have half your army physically on the battlefield at the start...
Narrative you can do what you want
well, within reason...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 14:55
if this is true however... I expect them to come in same as mawloc at the "end of any movement phase"
ravenwing move, boost, end of phase. DW strikes in on homers. Shoot, Assault, win.

I like this tactic
I also like the predictability of reserves now - no more rolling and rolling and rolling and hoping and praying that some of your Deathwatch units might turn up somewhen...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 15:03
gotta see the rules on the new DS stuff, but that removes much of the hated randomness.. but makes DS a bit too good maybe?
on the other hand, with a lack of vehicle facings...
and the otherwise ridiculous character not closest rule..
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 17 2017 15:04
For a start, not every unit can be placed in reserve
Says right there. That's why you don't deep strike all :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 17 2017 15:05
not everything could deep strike or outflank before
I'm implying that things that CAN always SHOULD ^^

who cares, they're all Ynnarri to me...
wyches sound awesome, I'm going Ynnarrrrrrrrri
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 17 2017 15:19
dont you mean aeldari?
ynnarri is just the 3 characters?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 17 2017 15:20
ah, well, that depends on your time frame... all Eldar are aeldari, but that was the name they used before the fall... I'm under the impression that Ynnnnnnnaaarrrriiii is the name of the followers of Ynnead
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 17 2017 15:20
aeldari is the name of the race, ynnari are the aeldari who follow ynnead

funny enough i was going to play wyches in the SW:A campaign here, but they are online only and were sold out. was a bit pissed. went with nids instead. been rolling faces with them

May 17 2017 15:56
Do you know what makes me sad the most? The fact that I mostly play 30K, and all these changes that would make my 30k army awesome, aren't coming yet.
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 17 2017 16:07
lol
didnt FW say it wasnt going to be to long of wait?
zopha
@zopha
May 17 2017 16:15
Stuff changes, hard to tell when FW will release something.
They could release all the unit profiles for free or just make new red books.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 17 2017 16:19
Yeah from what Ryan of RFI said, there was an email that went out saying that they will go to 8e, but not any time soon
zopha
@zopha
May 17 2017 17:03
yeah, it could be anytime between the release of 8th and when Angelus is released.
Thinking up names for bespoke rules that actually do the same thing will take up most of their time.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 17 2017 17:29
Yeah lol
cartag
@cartag
May 17 2017 18:14
I don't have a screencap, but I'd asked if we'd get Slaughterfiends in 8th and they're passing it along to dev team. Slaughterfiend = Defiler used as assault vehicle for Zerkers. It's in Apoc Reload
Fingers crossed, would be really easy to make a small rules tweak with the new format
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 17 2017 20:19
so... as reliable as Facebook is.. I saw this posted "Saw on the Tau page, somebody asking about FW units, GW replied FW would also have their updated rules ready for the 8th, basically FW units and corsairs will be viable in the 8th!" and the comments seemed to suggest that it was old news and FW was going to be ready for 8th/the new edition
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 17 2017 20:22
They're supposed to be ready for 40 K – we're expecting them to take the good old time for 30 K
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 17 2017 20:26
yeah, when the first announced the new edition they specified that all models from FW would have rules on launch
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 17 2017 20:26
fab :-)
ah yes, I read the messages about FW now and I get it... you were talking about how long the wait for 30k update would be...
