    I'm curious what will be the function of Remote Presence here, as under current rules it'd have no effect whatsoever. Unless she's supposed to have STR, not W

    Two Unconscious states? I don't think that's tied to STR.

    Is there any chance that we'll see some type of regular release sculpt down the line? Would love to use her to proxy a few Karakuri.

    1W trooper for 38 points? Yeah, thanks, no.

    Unlikely, that would be a new nested rule and they’re moving the opposite way.

    It could be that she’s supposed to have STR and the profile’s got a misprint. It may just mean that the rule as a whole is being significantly redone. The whole Ghost: Whatever family of Skills looks to be getting reorganized in N4, for example G: Servant is now Peripheral (Servant), and G: Synchronized is likely to be rolled into Peripheral too, given how it’s written.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if G: Remote Presence has been stripped down to “this model has two levels of unconsciousness, and Doctors/Engineers can spend a Command Token to reroll a failed attempt to heal/repair the model.” Although I seem to recall hearing somewhere that the second Unconscious is going away in N4?

    It also wouldn’t surprise me if the rule does very little, but some features are rolled into other rules that target Remote Presence models—for instance, it makes way more sense for “spend a command token to reroll Doc/Engineer if the target model has a Cube or Remote Presence” to live in the Doctor and Engineer skills, and be left out of the actual Remote Presence rule.

    She's a sophotect basically, she's got the luxury of operating no where near the fight thanks to yudbots. Bigger issue is neither faction she goes in is really in the position to truly get value out of her main selling point which is the ability to pick up a nasty HI pain train.

    With that price, I suspect cb might have accidentaly forgot to put NWI on there. CB have had similar errors in the past, and this loadout might not be the one she gets in aleph. Sure, akhbar doctor, engineer upgrade and superjump cost points, but not nearly 40. All aleph 1W 30+ pts models have VWNI except for atalanta, and she pays for BS17, msv2 MSR. Even with two full priced N4 SMGs id not expect her to cost this much. She needs to go out to push buttons, since most cant be done by a servant, and if this is her final profile i'll use her steampunk skin as a proxy at best

    Sorta, she can't double heal the betas so I dunno if you get full value out of her, like Nemo says she is a steep price.

    Both going by specops xp and normal point changes, not that much for a 1w. She's still lacking in a lot of important stats, pricy stats. Had she had straight 14's I wouldve minded less.

    She's got Akbar Doctor, Engineer Plus. I bet you these cost a ton too.

    Anyway. That's a hard pass profile for me, both from gameplay and from lore perspective.

    Parvati in the Army7 has STR 2. That makes the 38 pts a lot more palatable. I now think she can be a good doctor/engineer for an Asura haris or Yadu fireteam.

    I just played with her today, and she's amazing. Her having Wildcard makes her super versatile. I ran her in a core dakini team with a sniperbot and a rudras. I could afford to play the sniper so aggressively since there was a near certainty i could get it up with a single order every turn and the gizmokit let me support the rudras as well. It was such a fun game to play and Parvati performed so well.

    I like the idea of to returning achilles from dead to 2 wounds :D.

    Oh yes, running her in Duo with Asura will be fun.

    I find the Asura Lt, Yadu NCO, Pavarti haris tempting on paper, hope to give it a try soon.
