I am finding myself pretty anxious to get my hands on Thyra. Honestly, a girl hasn't got me this worked up since Freshman Homecoming, and that was a while ago. I wanted to open a thread where we can make "safe" predictions on her and her tier to hold me over until I can get her in my hands.
First of, FOCUS. There seems to be a trend of assault oriented models being 5 so I am assuming the worst here. This means she will also have a rather short spell list. Most are looking for stealth in some form. I doubt this, Menoth is the faction that deals with stealth, not the one that has it. I'm sure somewhere there is a list of things somewhere that each faction should never have, Stealth is at the top of ours. Flashing Blades may show up here, and hopefully some sort of free charge for battle group as well as a Knock Down protection spell.
We know she gives Daughters some form of Vengence, which means she already has it too, most likely. I'm cool with this, Daughters often end up running to engage and hoping for the best, this helps there and with "auto-ping" it helps cut down light infantry. Hopefully, as a Daughter, she has Acrobatics, which would make her sweet as an assassination caster.
Feat- I don't even want to pretend here, but a SPD and DEF buff would be sweet.
Tier- Obviously, Daughters should be FA U, beyond that, I am hoping to see a bit of the variety we get with eKreoss. Strong access to the elite close combat units, buffers not needed. I would like to see a list that can be easily swapped with eKreoss with minimal changes and some sort of Exemplar needs to be included to compliment the Daughters.
I don't feel this is hoping for to much, I am trying not to get to invested in these ideas, but I think they are reasonable.
