With the recent buffs to Abs, and the recent lack of buffs to Rhyas, I wondered if anyone was testing out the Shadow of Everblight. I confess that I haven't given her enough table time (too wrapped up in Abs, Vayl, and eThags), but I have a couple of observations.
- She's blindingly mobile and slippery, very hard to pin down and can easily get wherever she needs to be, but...
- ...she doesn't hit very hard when gets there. 2 shots at POW12? She's got RAT8, Death Sentence, and Eyeless Sight, so she doesn't have real trouble with acquiring targets or putting shots in, but there aren't a lot of shots and the POW is unremarkable. With Rapid Shot, she could put 4 POW 12's into a target, all with boosted damage since she rarely needs a hit boost, and have one left over for transfer. Without out, her damage output feels awfully watery.
- She may make better use of the Raek than anyone. ShadowStalk at 10", immune to free strikes when her Stalked charge her? For very reasonable Fury cost, she can shut off assassination runs pretty conveniently.
- Her feat is underwhelming. Maybe I'm using it wrong, building my lists wrong, or just undervaluing a couple of extra sprays, but it seems like a really awkward fit in a faction not noted for its ranged attack beasts.
I'm not an ace player by any stretch, so before I ran crying to the feedback form, I wanted to see if anyone else was having similar results with her. I hate to blame the model for my inability to deploy it correctly
