I'm still relatively new to the game and during my first months of WM/H a few questions have come up that I wanted your guys' opinions on:
1) How do you effectively use the Blessing of Vengeance? I've fielded the BoV a couple of times but it never felt it was worth the steep cost of 7pts. A few times I channeled a potentially juicy A2A through it but rolled really low on the additional hits (there's no way around that, right? Spending 4 focus in order to wipe out 2-3 troopers is frustrating...). Leaving that aside, how do you actually play it on the battlefield? Far away from Sevy in order to maximize the area to potentially cover with A2A / Immolation? Close to the opposing caster in order to pose a constant threat to them? Hunting juicy solos / units? Do you run it a lot of times (flanking maneuver?) to get into a better position but then leave it hanging to some degree?
This is the list (25 pts) I use currently:
2) After learning the hard way not to become to cocky with my caster I've gotten a lot better in protecting them from assassinations by being extremely conscious of where to move them. One thing that has eluded me so far, however, is the concept of camping focus if there is a potential threat looming for my caster. It always feels like I need every single focus to fuel jacks / cast spells come crunch time... How do you effectively camp focus, ie how much do you camp on average? Do you only camp focus if there is a definite threat for them or do you prepare for surprises anyhow later on in the game? In short: when do you camp and how much? I'm looking for rules of thumb here...
3) What are - generally speaking - viable reinforcements for the Protectorate? I'm thinking Daughters or Vilmon and buddies... Am I completely off-track? Any other suggestions for current SR2012 play?
4) What are the top-tier / most frequently used Khador casters in SR2012 play to date? I'm gonna face a lot of Khador soon, so a heads up would be appreciated, if possible with a few suggestions on how to deal with the most annoying stuff from them.
