Thoughts on Extoller Soulward[edit]

Extoller Soulward in a nutshell[edit]

The Extoller Soulward is a cheap solo with two functions:

  • Handing out Eyeless Sight
  • A gun powerful enough to blow an entire aspect off a heavy warbeast in a single shot. Or shoot a solo straight through a wall.

At the cost of only two Venator Rievers that's excellent value.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • No game against constructs (including the entire Convergence of Cyriss)
  • Slightly squishy solo
  • Powering an Ancestral Guardian slightly is rarely worth an entire activation

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Extoller Soulwards should be a priority to take out because of the amount of damage to warbeasts they can do. Act accordingly.

Changes from Mk2[edit]

Cheaper - but no longer hands out souls to guardians for free
