    Not getting much bang for my buck with this lady. She seems to spent an entire turn putting minor buffs/debuffs out but its not really getting me any work done. Every time she's been down I've been thinking I could have actually just taken someone else and had a better activation. Anyone getting good mileage out of her? What am I missing?

    Stunning opponents can be very disabling to them. A stunned Hexxer has lost much of her power. The Tactic Atom can shut down a pumped up dice roll. Remember also that her range is not limited by LOS. Put her behind a row of obstacles (or better Blocked Spaces) to improve her survivability.

    I think you need to reconsider your team synergies with her if I have to be honest, especially with Wild Bill and Musashi, as they would (literally) kill for the extra focus for extra attacks, while Massacre and Lunah can use the focus to save it against disables that cripples them, like dazzle or burn the focus to improve the amount of :1: that they can remove with :3::3:.

    Parvati is almost entirely unable to reset when stunned and Hexxer/Gata are surprisingly useless in the same state.

    Also, her cards are amazing. Atom is a pure troll card.

    The problem with Laxmee is she is very difficult to keep in the hexadome at this point in the environment. She is going to die a lot. She has the least survivability of any other aristos right now. Her utility is great, but not when she is in the infirmary.

    Kozmo's Nebula to place smoke within :SL: 0-5 without LOS will synergize well with her. Fragile Tao Wu also has possibilities but may require great skill to play two 2 hit characters effectively.

    I honestly find her one of the strongest ones out there, dice manipulation is huge. She is VERY fragile, but her abilities and her cards are absolutely brutal.

    She's fragile, but also much easier to keep out of sight. Careful movement and thoughtful positioning are way more important for her.

    Just remember not to focus your entire team in certain situations. :joy:

    The addition of the expansions allowing for more Taunt, Immobilize, Focus , Stun not to mention energy states coming back from the bench and even Parvati's extra initiave would mean that when Tao Wu plays this card three or four cards will likely be discarded.
