Re: [Pod 1] PYRIA (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Playtesting

Posted a playtest here.

I will add here that I think changing her special attack to two attacks of 4 at a range of 3 or 4 would be better both functionally (easier to position, which can hurt her a lot frailty wise) and thematically (two flaming hands should equal two attacks not one or two)

Also, should she have lava resistance? Seems like a fit for her character and that certainly would've helped in my matchup!

I'm not sure what the mechanical difference would be?

Re: [Pod 1] PYRIA (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Playtesting

Thanks for the playtest, S1R_ART0R1US.

Part of the point of the special attack is to force her to be dangerously bold in placement, high-risk high-reward. Splitting the beams is a key part of that.

As for Lava Resistant, it's something we discussed. Just because a figure does fire stuff doesn't necessarily make it Lava Resistant, though. It wouldn't be a problematic addition, but we decided to keep the unit to single power (which is mildly complex).

Re: [Pod 1] PYRIA (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Playtesting

Just to add with Lava Resistant, a lot of elves in Heroscape use fire magic but aren't lava resistant, likewise with Mimring's breath. I'm not part of the team on this one, but I'd say Lava Resistant isn't really a necessity here. A couple of units in this set will likely have it anyway (the cats and maybe the phoenixes).

My take is that it's a high-risk, moderate reward move. If I can keep her on height I can still get a 4 die attack off, and I can get it at longer range. I don't affect as many figures that way, but she's more survivable.

Re: [Pod 1] PYRIA (Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer) - Playtesting

Pyria was included in these tests, though she didn't do much (and the reports are just notes anyway, really). She was largely overshadowed by Ozuul in the same army, and when she did get used the potential was there but she tended to roll poorly before getting killed. I don't think the tests provide much other than to say I do like her as a single power card as the lines are fun to set up and harder to avoid than you might think. Now if I could just roll at least average...
