Soulbursts now cannot be triggered on your opponent’s turn, and only one of each particular action can be performed on your turn.
They’re extremely fast, surprisingly difficult to kill with proper support, and hit incredibly hard in Assault, quickly chewing through MEQs with mass high-strength, decent AP attacks. The Caress works better against T5, T8, and T9.
The embrace came second overall. Overall an okay discipline, but it requires a lot of careful thought to utilise properly. Retrieved from ” https: While the 8″ of movement it has may not seem particularly fast, the Yncarne also has the unique ability to teleport to the location where any squad friend or foe cidex killed, so long as it is at least 1″ away from enemy units.
