  • My feeling about how it should work is that it depends entirely on their age, experience, Caste, specialization of strengths chosen, circumstances of the battle, and whether the Lunar is rocking any significant artefact of their own of a comparable grandeur and puissance to the Warstrider! (Plus luck).

    I'd say Warstriders should be certainly be great for offsetting the disadvantages faced by being a small scale fighter trying to battle something big...

    So if you're playing a Solar who totally doesn't have any other way of fighting something big, and is really focused...
