eKaya tier list
Wanted to know if using Ekaya tier list actually works and what people thought?
It's great. Complements her strength with advanced deploy, cheaper heavies and covers her weaknesses with board control from the Druids and zone/point grabbing from the skinwalkers. The +1 bonus to start the game is nice too, unless your me in which case you'll lose every single dice off in competitve games.
Basically, it's up there with pBaldurs for the best tier in faction, and probably in the 10 top tiers lists overall.
I am a brand new player but I am starting out with eKaya tiered. I am doing tier one in 25 and 35 point levels and tier 4 in 50. I think it's a great theme list because it doesn't restrict you much at all. She doesn't really need a geo wall and she doesn't bring much for wolds so using the living beasts is best anyways. Druids and Stones are going to be in her list anyways. She can also bring a wilder as a solo which is nice to help her manage fury.
Skinwalkers are pretty meh but they take up space and can fill some roles. In a 50 point tier 4 list with 4 heavies they end up being a 3 med base unit for 1 point basically. Which ain't bad. Her theme restricts you a little bit but nothing that she can't easily do without.
Actually I have been using her tier 4 list at 35 point and seeming to be working good for now. I ave only been playing for a few months.
As for the skinwakers, most people I play with tell me that they are worth their points, only gatormen posse is better.
