    What is the Best Librarian psychic power?

    What do you guys think is the best librarian power???
    I like the idea of fear of darkness but i normally use might of heros and/or veil of time.
    So what are your picks?Do you have any tactics associated with them?

    First of all, I think this topic has already been brought up..

    Anyways,

    In my Deathwing army, I usually use the following (ok, so I always use it):

    Epistolary Librarian, stubborn, Terminator Armour, Storm Bolter, Fear of the Darkness, Might of Heroes
    4x Deathwing Terminators, 2x Assault Cannons, Furious charge
    Drop pod
    435 pts

    Deep Striking FoD is marvelous. It has the most potential to give you the most victory points, often making 2 or 3 squads run like sissies (Tau, had 4 Fire Warrior teams and 2 Crisis teams flee). Of course, if you go against someone with an army that can't fail morale checks (like Deathwing), don't bother. The following turn, I charge anyone dumb enough to stay there with might of heroes.

    The majority of the lists I've seen and/or topics, as few army lists as I've seen (that even had Librarians) had Fear of the Darkness. Personally, I'm not using Might of Heroes because it fits my fluff, but I would also consider Fury of the Ancients...it'd just be more annoying than anything else.

    Im just a good ole Space Wolves player, so we don't have access to the new psychic powers, but even if i did, I still think I would take my Rune Priest's Storm Caller ability. The ability for one of my Blood Claws squads to strike first going into close combat (Storm Caller grants any squad the ability to be treated as if it were in cover, even when assaulting). When Im talking about a charge the produces 70+ close combat throws, and of that anywhere between 8 and 12 power weapons attacks, Its a nice little ability to throw into the teeth, especially when we're talking speciality CC squads like Banshees, Striking Scorpions, Raptors, etc, etc.

    Fear of darkness is a very good or useless power, depends who you're facing. If I used a librarian i'd prob use FoD cause if I wanted a CC monster i'd take a chaplain

    As for stormcaller. Banshees ALWAYS strike first, it doesnt matter if you're in cover. Always striking first > Int 10. Works against those other troops listed tho

    Yeah of course,well useless is abit over the top its just not as effective,it can still work but it has a higher chance of success against low ld armies.

    Well, my favorite psychic power is Might of Heroes, since every HQ I get has a jump pack. I just stick him in an Elite Assault Squad and cast Might of Heroes on my power fist-wielding Veteran Sergeant. This has led to the death of many a character in my experience. It's also very fluffy in my Raven Guard.

    If I need to get somewhere in a hurry, I'll use Veil of Time to help get the job done. It usually doesn't help my Movement or Shooting Phases, but when it comes down to Assault I can usually get where I need to go.

    Gaunts and Genestealers don't like making armor saves, so any shooting you can add is a plus. Not to mention FotA only stops once it reaches the table edge or a friendly unit.
