Analysis of Elara1
Elara1 in a nutshell
Combos & Synergies
- Gorgon: As a light jack with a high utility gun that really want to stay safe. it makes great use of Speed of Death. A common package especially against list that would have a lot of heavies is Elara with two gorgons. One focus for each Gorgon giving them fully a boosted shot, one focus to upkeep speed of death, and one to camp for protection.
- Discordia: As a Heavy Jack with a short range gun that wants to be able to shoot for multiple rounds in a row. Speed of Death allows Discordia to be able to take shots from close range and yet still be able to back off to safety.
Drawbacks and Downsides
- Elara is fragile and there is always the risk your Jack could go inert if she is killed.
- As with all Journeyman WarCasters her low FOC stat makes hitting with Convection difficult.
