Theorymachine go away.
The only thing I'm hoping to see in this thread is, "I've used it and it's been a game changer" type of stuff.
So lately I've been trying to learn to use eButcher. I've taken Spriggan and Doomreavers+UA with him nearly every time. But, from there I get very shaky as I feel I need to take melee beatsticks to use in conjunction with his feat such as DA BEARS or Man-O-War Shocktroopers or (one of my super favorites), MoW Drakun. The problem is is that as usual when playing our beloved Reds our DEF is so crappy that we die to anything even vaguely resembling a gun line army.
Don't get me wrong here, I've tried our Kayazy Assassins and been underwhelmed (maybe I shouldn't cast Fury on them right away). Maybe I shouldn't be so stuck on running with the maniacal Doomreavers+UA and should try out the IFP+UA. Maybe I shouldn't try to hang back a bit with eButcher and just run him up the gut, but that's lost me at leat one game.
This is where I'd like to turn to the community and have you guy's real life input (NO THEORYMACHINE, please) to help me to learn to use what looks like a challangeing but super fun caster to master. Should I attrition with the feat? Should I assassinate with it? Tell me what you've used on more than one occasion with Orsus Zoktavir that works...please.
...and if you'd like to Theroymachine, I guess I'm OK with that, because at 1-3 in the W-L column, I'll take what I can get.
