Adeptus Astartes Favor and Assault Boats

Postby TheStarSlayer » 14 March 2016, 22:23

Hi,

I was curious if the Adeptus Astartes Favor impact Assault Boats? I was considering adding it to my Mars class if it improved her troop tubs. I did a forum search but it didn't turn up any hits.

Thanks!

I think it replaces boarding actions and teleport attacks with stronger variants. Dont think it effects assault boats as the tooltip doesent mention anything about that but could still be easily mistaken :lol:

Someone who actually has done the combination you are referring to might have a better idea about what it effects

It definitely does.

On a similar note, the Khorne favor has the same effect on Chaos ships...

I have to ask, why do you think that it affects assault actions as in boarding attacks, lightning strikes and assault boats? The only thing i can see when mousing over an enemy ship is varying numbers of critical success rate. varyin due to the enemys troop value, my own troop value doesnt change that number at all. Just curious, maybe you have more insight information.

With this, I have a question about boarding in general then.

Do those numbers, like Troop: 50 or what not, represent the % chance a crit will occur?

Because all assaults and boardings, including repelling, Use the "Troop" stat, Assault boats Is just boarding. but long range boarding.

Any + to Troop is a boost for Boardings.
Any + to Boardings is a MASSIVE boost to boardings. because its usually an additional boarding party assault, this giving you an extra chance (per +Boarding action) of dealing critical damage.

Edit For HERO's question.

The Troop number is how well you can resist a Boarding action too. it could tie in together, Having 56 crew means theres a 44% chance when your boarded it deals damage to you.
