View Full Version : Rippers

Hey Eldar lovers.
Is it already common knowledge how much damage the Warlock's chain lightning does to a ripper squad? If you aren't already aware then make sure you try it next to you face the zerg. Made me lol... hard! :lol:

We should have a nice list of squads that this ability actually damages instead of just tickles.
Item #1... Rippers

Since it does modearte/low damage but to mass amounts of targets, any tier 1 squad other than space marines are quite nicely affected by it really.
Just requires low hit points, which is usually given away by high squad numbers. I wouldn't bother using it on a hero though, unless you need some extra punch when they are already retreating.
BTW, it kind of kills about 85% of the ripper squad ;)

It kills the entire ripper squad if they are in the center of the ability :D

It seems great on all the T1 mass-nid units. Utterly pointless on anything remotely tough, but zap a guardian/scout/gaunt squad and follow up with Gu fire and bye-bye enemy unit.
For anything else it seems like a waste of time.

yep Destructor is a very powerful attack against numerous weak units. I usually wait until the Warlock has lept into a unit and then focus on the densest point. Orcs, Guardians, Shurikens and Scouts are all vulnerable to the attack. Most satisfying of all are the Termaguant and Hormagaunt units.
but at later stages Im reluctant to use the ability because mana is constantly ebbing from other uses.
