Like many of you, when he was first revealed I was skeptical of his inclusion, but I really like Tiktaq'to, his Position is great and he utilizes the Lizardmen roster in a unique way. However, he feels like he needs some tweaks.
(I've only just gotten into the new DLC so if I'm wrong about something let me know)
He himself has good buffs to Terradons and Rippers in his skill trees but that doesn't extend to other generals he recruits. Really, his buffs to the flying units shouldn't be hidden behind however many skill points it is in a tree that you can't even put points into until your level 10, They should be uniform faction buffs.
but Personally though, I think it should be a little more spacific: instead of giving every lord the flying unit buffs, only lords with a flying mount should get the buffs. This would make sense since, like tiktaq'to, the lords presence in the air, leading the flying teams would lead to better coordination and performance but it would also synergize nicely with his unique faction traits that has all Skink chiefs start with a Terradon mount.
Doing this would make his factions armies more unique, as he could have lords and heroes in the air on Terradons or Rippers focused on flying units and saurus or slaan lords on the ground focused on infantry, beasts etc. As it stands now, the only real unique thing about his faction is Tiktaq'to himself and the buffs he gives to his one army.
Also I think he and his other aerial generals should have a bonus to movement range for obvious reasons. Giving them a flat 5 or 10% boost would really drive home Tlaqua's more mobile playstyle in the campaign as well as on the battlefield.
Finally, another issue I find with him has been stated by many people: he only buffs two units. The problem is that, as far as I know, the Lizardmen don't really have more flying units in their roster aside from the Coatl.
So I want to throw it over to you, what do you think? What units could they add to add depth to his playstyle and is there anything else they could change to make him better?
