Okay, I've been reading on a number of threads, and it seems to be a fairly commonly held opinion that ferocity skill table is lack lustre, not really ideal, generally shoddy and quite a poor choice. Why? I've always rated it, massivly. Now granted I havent run certain gangs very much (my main gangs I love to run are goliath, cawdor, orlock and pitslaves, maybe scavies too). I'll discount the outlanders for the moment. The other 3 all have access to my favourite table, and looking objectivly, I think the only table I put in the same utility is agility. Now I'll say right now, I don't count techno, I never consider it as I never run van saar and so it's always a 'special' occasion pick. My logic (say with my cawdor and goliath) is that I will happily pick ferocity until a ganger (juve!) has learnt a trade, is he a 'stab you in the face' type of guy, or a 'fill you fulla lead' chap. Until you know that, Ferocity is the best, it keeps your guys in the fight, keeps them upright, makes them recover better, lets them operate more independantly, it rocks! With goliaths it is my standard pick, with cawdor, a 50/50 split with agility. With orlock (its been longer since I played them) I ran that everyone (ganger and juve) would get ferocity as their first normal skill pick. These choices mean that my gangs all have above average staying power. They are hard bastards. Now with goliaths, if I rolled a any skill, it will be techno if they havent picked a trade yet, or agility or shooting if they have, with cawdor it is the same, but with agility being switched for stealth. Orlocks its agility, stealth or techno as their 'stab', 'shoot' or 'undecided' respectivly. I'll be honest, I dont rate muscle, or combat, both seem too specialised into something that is easy enough to win by setting your self up for the right target, equipment and charge (along with WS of course), that the skills they offer seem less important to say... sprint, leap or beserk charge. I've not math hammered, this is all gut feeling, but why fellow tribe members, is the opinion of ferocity so low? I'm also curious how others rate tables/if others have a rough advance plan in their head for what they stick to?
