Tigurius vs. Sevrin Loth[edit]

By crunch I don't really think Sevrin Loth is the better psycher. More durable, sure, by a country mile, but a better psyker? Really the only thing that Loth has over Tigurius is being able to chose his powers instead of rolling on them, which isn't really much of a bonus over someone who can reroll his powers anyway. Speaking of reroll's tigurius gets to reroll any roll pertaining to him in the psychic phase. I guess it's a matter of which you prefer, more durability or more psychic power, but I'll compramise and reword the article. As an afterthought, that armor of Loth's is fucking ridiculous. A consistent 2+ invuln? The fuck? I'd understand if it was a one-time use thing, but as is it seems broken to me unless I'm missing something. Josman (talk) 04:41, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

He's only got 2 wounds to go with it, and realistically if you're looking to tank with Sevrin Loth, what you want is to get biomancy. So you then have the powers Shield of Selket, Smite, Endurance, Iron Arm, and Hemmorage. You only have 3 warp charges base, and for the sake of sanity, assume that you need 3 charges to statistically guarantee a power. 2 for a 75%, and 1 for a 50%. So you can get a 50% chance of casting 4 of those powers, and a 75% chance of getting off one. 50% across the board if you spend your charge to get that shield. That's still a damned lot of powers, and you can do without smite to make hemmorage more likely to go off and kill a whole lot of schmucks. Evilexecutive (talk) 07:21, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Tigurius doesn't have power picking. If you want to tank with Tigurius you'll have to roll on biomancy, which means that you pick one power. You have a 50% chance of starting with said power you want. There's the same warp charge mechanics as Sevrin, but you're short the Shield of Selket, so no invuln save at all. However, Tigurius has a 75% chance of manifesting with 1 charge, and a 100% chance of manifesting with 2 charges. That means he can more easily divvy up whatever charges he has between the powers he did get.Evilexecutive (talk) 07:21, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Realistically the two have similar costs. But overall Sevrin Loth is a better choice for having a 100% guarantee that you can bring the power you need to throw cheese up the table. For that matter, the two are very similar in power level, and fortunately.. They both have more than enough charges to Spell-spam whatever they want, except that Sevrin will be vastly more durable.Evilexecutive (talk) 07:21, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
I agree that Sevrin is the more durable character, but statistically Tigurius is much more likely to get off any given psychic power because of his rerolls, and while durability is great, you aren't bringing a librarian to tank, you're bringing him for psychic stuff.
