Wanted to add, I'm against flying as well mostly because this unit is already a lot like a certain dragon.

Sorin might be as well if we end up keeping him a Vampire, and flying is much more a vampire power than a mage power in Heroscape.

@Fakeraistlin I like Pyria. It makes pyro feminine.

Gonna bump this. Where are we at?


I like the double-fireline, always been a fan. I think we should consider giving her a simple Exposion SA to go with it. That's always been my preferred design direction, two different and versatile SAs like Q10.

I'm against adding another attack. A double fireline is plenty interesting, and keeps the unit focused.

Re: [Pod 1] UNIT NAME (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Design

A single-SA power unit could work. Do you like that direction, or could you see another power?

I'm against flying, or lava resistant.

A second power would be exactly that: a second power for the sake of having a second power. It's a bell/whistle that isn't needed.

Re: [Pod 1] UNIT NAME (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Design

I can see that. After all, Deathwalker only had one meaningful power. Syvvaris, Mimring.

If we’re goung to make her an archmage that gives her some incidental synergy with our plans for the Illusions (which is intentional for them, incidental synergy).

Re: [Pod 1] UNIT NAME (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Design

There aren't any concrete plans for the illusions to use any Archmage figure yet, so I'd be hesitant to encourage avoiding that route this early if that's the intended theme. If it proves to be problematic down the road and the Illusions pods really wants to include Sonlen, then I think that we could address it then.

I agree with the sentiment that a second power is unnecessary. A double fireline is already unique enough, and adding more onto it runs the risk of overdesigning her.
