    The Revenant Titan's rules are in the main Apocalypse Book.

    I sort of want to avoid buying the rulebook until I know I want a titan.Kind of ironic.If not the exact rules could someone give me a general overview e.g this thing tears up super heavies in close combat but keep it away from thing that will survive to strike back

    You could also look at your local hobby shop for the Apocalypse Book for the stats. It's on page 140.

    Essentially, the Revenant Titan has the following traits:
    - It is rather fragile by titan/superheavy standards.
    - It is surprisingly bad in close combat, but being a titan, it easily destroys other vehicles. Also note that it is better in close combat than any other titan.
    - It can sacrifice shooting to "fleet of foot".
    - It can go exceptionally fast with its jump jets.
    - Its main weapons could be pulsars or sonic lances. Both are really powerful weapons with the only difference between them being that pulsars are long range 5" blast weapons and the sonic lances use the large flamer template.
    - It's Eldar shielding system, instead of operating like void shields, essentially acts as an "armor save" for the vehicle.
    - It is really expensive points-wise.

    In my view, the Revenant is significantly better at shooting other vehicles than assaulting them.

    Additionally, check the following link's Emperor Battle Titan for sample titan stats:

    I'm not sure how that's relevant, since both the Revenant's primary weapon choices ignore cover saves

    I meant that it's own holo-fields are now useless.

    The HoloFields act independently of the cover saves. If you can somehow put the Titan in a spot where it gets a cover save, the cover save and the holofield both give your titan a 4+ "save". It's not either-or, it is both.

    I have absolutely no experience with super heavies or Apocalypse, but this seems off to me. Regularly in 40k, you can only make one save - either an armour, cover, or invulnerable save. Unless the holo-fields act similarly to something like Feel No Pain (i.e., it isn't exactly a save but just a special rule conferring a save-like bonus) then it wouldn't be able to roll for both. If it is akin to Feel No Pain, then disregard this, since I don't know anything about it.
