I'm trying to pick up TK. I know it's impossible to list all matchups in 1 thread, but I'm looking for help. I like the flavor of the faction but I can't understand what are the "go-to units and strategies". For example, as a HE main, I'd tell you that Spearmen, Dragon Princes, Dragons and Archers are pretty universal units in almost any matchup. You can hardly go wrong with them if you learn how they work. The strongest and most versatile Lord that as a noob you can blindly pick is probably Alarielle currently. Can you tell me this info for TK please? Would like to facilitate the learning curve a bit
1) 1-2 basic strategies TK rely on
2) 3-4 units that are universally strong and versatile
3) the best LL
4) how is the frontline formed, in what case I should pick Skeleton Spearmen (seem a bit weak)
Now I know the basics, for example Arkhan is pretty strong but I would like to start playing TK more without spamming SL/FoB...
The impressions I have about TK is that the whole cavalry department (except light cavalry) is underwhelming. I tried the Screaming Skull Catapult vs Black Orcs and I wasn't impressed although I had good uptime (might have been due to terrain this). Are these units bad? Or situational?
A few ideas I had in the match I played vs GS was that Bowshabti are not worth it in this match (is this true?).
Chariots, are they useful? TK were a chariot faction in TT, would be cool to be able to use them.
Hierotitan, what is this dude meant for?
Are the generic Lords any good?
Regular Ushabti, are these dudes good considering TK can already field monsters, Ushabti Bow and you get 1 for free with the faction mechanic?
(important) which RoR are actually good? I know from the other side people pick a lot of RoR Archers and Bow Ushabti, occasionally Kephra Guard. Are any of the remaining ones worthwhile?
Feel free to add 2-3 important matchups too!
Thanks a lot for the help.
