How to Counter Edit

Combat Edit

Like all Ninja, Ghost should aim to attack targets in the back to benefit from Assassin to maximize the damage roll.

Additionally his Special Attack, 'Throw Attack (0)', is a powerful offensive tool as its one of the few methods the Shadow Wind Clan have to cause prone. Successfully used on a tired target will have it suffer a -2 MS penalty (-1 for Prone, -1 for Exhausted). Even if no one takes advantage of it, unless the target has Jump Up, it will cost it an activation to remove its Prone condition.

Finally, Ghost's second Ki-feat 'Vitality' is also his most useful since it can be used anytime (being Instant) and regains him an activation. This allows him to:

  • Use as the last enemy activates to gain the last activation of a turn.
  • Use to engage an Exhausted, Prone enemy and take advantage of their MS penalty.

Ghost is also innately Soulless, which makes him Fearless. He has have no issues engaging Fear foes.

Resilience Edit

Like all Ninja, Ghost relies or using cover to avoid being hit. Armor (1) will help reduce the damage, and Side-Step Defense (0) will help him avoid being outnumbered, but a good solid hit will reduce his 6 Wd's to 0.

That said, Ghost is VERY hard to keep pinned in melee as both his 'per-turn' feats lend to this:

  • Dodge (1) should be used when needs to play defensive. It increases his Side-Step Defense and allows him to act as a semi-tank (since he can use Vitality after everyone has acted to end being Exhausted and take action).

Support Edit

Attachments Edit

Disguise Edit

Ghost's name isn't just earned from being intangible, but also the option to be nigh invisible. The combo of Disguise + Soulless is powerful since ONLY Soulless enemies with a Ki of 2+ can attempt to notice Ghost.

Synergy Edit

Weakness Edit

Possibly the most powerful element of Ghost is Vitality. Unfortunately it is limited to 'once-per-turn' and its Ki cost restricts is use. Enemies aware he can use it may aim to Exhaust him fast, then keep attacking to encourage him to burn his Ki in an effort to survive.
