Morathi Builds?

Greetings,

I am strongly considering using Morathi for a 3000 point list. I am a little confused on what to equip her with. I am thinking of putting the staff with bound PoD. Other than this, I am clueless as to what else to put on her. They try and make her a combat character but I can't see how or why you would want to charge with her.

I was thinking about putting the darksword on her since it is cheaper than the lance and not even bothering with any of the enchanted items.

How do you kit out Morathi?

Thanks

I usually give her the dark sword, potion of strength and focus familiar/black staff depending on points.

I don't see any point on heartseeker... it's useless if she loses her mount, plus the dark sword can kill single attack mages in one hit if she gets the opportunity.

Potion is just there in case she has to fight someone with armour and becasue I usually don't use it in my list so this is a good opportunity.

Black staff is the best for her IMO becasue she knows all the spells, but if you don't have the poin ts, or fight a gunline, the focus familiar will work well.

I tried kitting her out a couple of times as a viable substitute for "combat mage" or "dragon mage"

It doesn't work. she's too expensive.

So to use her to her best ability I think you want to keep her as cheap and as spell-killy as possible forgetting the combat (despite her being pretty good at it for a mage)

With that comes
Darksword (cheaper, and you don't really want her in combat anyway)
Black Staff (She has 6 spells, even 6 dice + PoD + extra point to cast rolls won't be enough to cast more than 3 in a turn which would mean you're wasting her advantage over other level 4s)

The times she becomes useful are those times when you want to fling a flying assassin at an enemy unit but you know they will just be challenged away from that mage... gives you an option to chuck her in the combat too, since she can single shot-kill mages with either of her weapons.

If you were gonna come up against Kairos, you'd give her the potion/sword combo too, just to see the look on your opponent's face if they failed a ward and you tell them kairos is dead.

That's actually awesome idea.

Bare in mind that you can also use to Bladewind to clear out those Champions from units, which will help versus the Morathi and Mage fight.
