Thoughts on Ghordson Basher[edit]

Ghordson Basher in a nutshell[edit]

The Ghordson Basher is a cheap slambot- smashing through the enemy and knocking them over while having a lot of armour for its cost. Although not technically a melee light by Rhulic standards it can possibly be seen as one.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • General Ossrum - Energizer and Bulldoze.
  • Gorten Grundback can give you walls to slam things into.
  • If you're going to marshal a jack (for example if you have Thor Steinhammer to tune up a Ghordson Earthbreaker) then the Basher is an excellent choice as it is as cheap as many lights and slams for free, allowing you to use the Crush drive for extra damage and a follow up attack after the Grand Slam.

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • It doesn't brawl like a heavy
  • Easy to hit.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Look for lining it up and catching multiple people with the Grand Slam

Changes from Mk2[edit]

  • Significantly Cheaper
  • Gained Sturdy
