Has anyone considered actually fielding the character Ethereals? They each have their own different advantages as well as the elements invocation (one more than the other) and now that the "OMG Why!" death failure has been removed their loss isn't so significant.
Aun'Va has beslubber you AP ability yet of course that matters little in a hail of bolter fire. He also has a fairly decent morale modifier significant enough to want him to stick around. He can also elemental twice, which, you know. Can help.
Aun'Shi has a shield generator (to be paid for?) and can do some sticky stabby I suppose.
To me they're looking more useful than previously. Thoughts?
