Has anyone had good and or bad experiences with the wraith/destroyer lord combo? Should I take it against a veteran (never been defeted) USF player? I don't know how well it will do against his seer counsil, and that, along with an avatar are his only bag units, I think. Would it be better to take more destroyers and some scarabs? Or for that matter, what would be a better replacement? I can't give too many details on what I have, as my opponent is a member, and will find this topic...All I'm saying is I lack cc (read: don't have as much as shooty) besides the lord/wraith combo. Thanks for your help.
If close combat is inevitable, use flayed ones. scarabs are also effective at hunting down annoying falcons. Basically, anything with starcannons should be a priority to kill along with Dark Reapers.
Use wraiths to attack units at half-strength or units with poor armor saves like guardians. Wiping out those starcannon platforms is important. Or your warriors will be in trouble.
Howling Banshees can cause problems. Watch out for them. Avatar and Wraithlord are also tough units to kill, but dont make the mistake of concentrating your firepower on them too soon. Its better to take out Starcannons first.
Ive actually had pretty good luck using Pariahs against a seer council... but ive also played games where my Pariahs have done absolutely nothing. Theyre hard to use, and usually become a serious target.
As for the Wraith/Destroyer Lord combo... everytime I've employed the tactic or seen someone else do the same... its a suicide mission. But generally the wraiths/lord can kill at least their points value and then some before they die horribly. Eldar have so many units that youre bound to fail your 3+ save.
I have some advice that might work. Insted of taking the wraiths to guard your DestLord take a large group Scarabs. These will absorb most of the fire letting your lord get into h2h where we all know he wants to be.
Listenhis avatar is no prob, even it can fall to Lord...the wraith lord combo is good if you get in combat, and against the avatar(anyone know it's initiative?) it will wound with no armour or invulnerable saves possible...given that you gave him a warscythe...
"You think you know fear? You haven't seen the relentless advance of death against you! You think you know pain? You haven't felt the liquid steel of the cyborgs' blade as they silently scream their pleasure in your face. It doesn't matter if you are human, orc, or any other mutated creature in this Universe; they killed us all once and they'll do it again. They want to do it again. Their number is Legion; their name is Death...who are we to get in their way?!"
