How to Counter Edit

Tactics Edit

Aim for the Center Edit

Despite no significant armor, Kenta is a tank who heads for the midst of the enemy warband where he will keep they occupied. Even if he commits only 1- dice to defense in a Melee Exchange, he is able to re-roll it (Martial Prowess) and its final result will always be improve by +1 (Parry). He can choose to use more, but this alone makes it hard for enemies to end him.

Decapitate Them Edit

While Kenta is capable of Decapitating targets with Critical Strike Attack, it does cost him -1 MS to do so. Even so its worth while as any successful hit (even with an SL of 0) has a 16% chance of causing the target to die! This encourages Kenta to typically assign at least 1 dice to both attack and defense in any melee exchange, allowing you to be flexable with your remaining dice to either assure your chances of hitting your target or making sure you don't get struck yourself.

Get Off Me! Edit

Critical Strike SHOULD be what Kenta is using in each Melee Exchange but, should he find himself reduced to an MS of 2 or less, use his other Special Push Defense (0) to prevent yourself being outnumbered and overwhelmed.

Stand Against Your Fear Edit

Kenta's Rally won't give his allies Fearless, but it will end the Frightened state in a huge radius. This is very circumstantual and should only be used if multiple allies are Frightened. However it can quickly turn the tide by allowing your warband to retaliate with full control over their dice pools.

You Will Regret That! Edit

Battle Hardened is a great Ki Feat which lets Kenta stay alive until the current turn ends and, if killed, has a 50% chance he will start the next turn with full health! As such, when he uses it, devote your MS pool to full attack to deal as much damage as possible (typically using Critical Strike Attack to try and get some decapitations) since dying may not be your end.

Kenta can use this feat anytime you are the active player (not just when Kenta is the active model) but its use is limited to once per game, meaning it can't be used recklessly. Ideally deploy it when Kenta either:

  • Needs to kill some targets (wise enemies may not risk wasting attacks against him)
  • He is at serious risk of being killed himself.
