Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 Imperial Knight Solaria unit is detailed in the latest blog post. We were provided details about its attributes, skills, background and much more.
According to the post Imperial Knights are ancient battle suits powered by pilots. They stand at 40ft tall and are fitted with Titan-class weaponry, such as the missile launcher.
Lady Solaria brings her looming Imperial Knight, Drakaina, to support the forces of the Blood Ravens. Unleashing screen-shaking assaults from her twin Gatling cannons, she is the terror of all those who would stand against the Space Marines.
- Long range
- High Damage
- Reasonable health
Gatling Barrage: Imperial Knight’s twin cannons spray the battlefield with bullets in a 90 arc in front.
Ironstorm Missiles: Solaria chooses up to 6 locations and fire missiles at the selected targets.
Solaria is a late-game ranged powerhouse that is most affected againts armoured targets. The downside of playing with Solaria is that it’s slow which makes vulnerable to high damage attacks.
Even with her slow movements she can be highly useful in battle. In fact, lady Solaria can change the outcome of a battle in Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3.
She doesn’t need to be in the thick of the battle to be impactful. With her Ironstorm Missiles in particular, Solaria can change the outcome of a battle. Casting less than the full amount of missiles will reduce the ability’s cooldown, and can also be the preferred strategy when you’d rather hinder your enemy’s movement than stand and fight
