I have been seeing a lot of Legion players posting that they think the Seraph is underpowered at 8 points. I have still been facing double Seraph lists, and I think it is still a brutal beast to face. Now I didn't sneak out of my Circle forums to come here to be flamed, I am hoping to get up to speed with where the rest of the MKII Hordes world is at. Here is why the Seraph causes dread for me:
-Seraph with Vayl's Incite absolutely shreds all of my infanry with average rolls. Being an effective RAT 7 and POW 14 kills a lot of stuff.
-Manifest Destiney with a Seraph is pretty brutal too.
-My wolds are hit on below average dice and get peppered pretty handily with the starfe.
-Sentry Stones and Shifting stones cannot stand up to the Seraph and it is impossible to portect them with clouds, forests, or interveining models.
-They are still pretty useful with eLylyth.
-They have a 17 inch threat range (assuming slip stream from another Seraph or a flying warlock).
-There is no longer a fear of a flubbed 1st roll negating the strafe.
All-in-all, I think they are ridiculously good still. What am I missing?
