Dahlia Hallyr & Skarath

From Battle College
Jump to: navigation, search

Mercenary Minion Lesser Warlock Solo & Heavy Warbeast

Her own kinsmen do not understand how the entrancing music of this Iosan sorceress tames lesser minds. She has forged a bond with a pale Tatzlwurm she calls Skarath and offers their combined services in battle to those she deems useful. With a few haunting notes she directs this living weapon to swallow lesser enemies whole or to paralyse the mighty with its poisonous bite.

Thoughts on Dahlia Hallyr & Skarath[edit]

Dahlia Hallyr & Skarath in a nutshell[edit]

Skarath is a very handy warbeast with a great gun, passable melee ability, and solid defensive abilities. Dahlia grants Skarath pathfinder, prowl and murderous and has an upkeep that gives melee units fits. They're a solid pick and can often hold down zones on their own.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Dr. Arkadius can use his Combat Syringe (Specifically Raw Adrenaline) to give Skarath a fully boosted spray.
  • Magnus2 or Ossrum can put Bullet Dodger on Skarath. With Wrongeye casting Star Crossed nearby, Skarath is a very difficult snake to hit.

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • Expensive and Skarath is only POW 16.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Haunting Melody prevents living warrior models from making attacks against Dahlia, but it also keeps them from giving or receiving orders, which can really mess armies up.
