A caster assassination is the only way to win at this point. The Warpwolf Stalker teleports in and gets a hit on Morghoul, leaving him half dead. The Feral Warpwolf moves left to have a line of sight to Morghoul. Tanith feats and starts slinging spells through the Feral Warpwolf. One Rift misses and Morghoul steps back out of range of the channeling Feral Warpwolf.

As a last shot Tanith moves forward and shoots with her gun. She hits but it is not enough to kill Morghoul.

Round 4 – Skorne

The Titan Sentry charges Tanith and head butts her to knockdown. The Bronzeback Titan charges in to finish her off.

Conclusion

Battle Report Test #5 - End of Game
Tanith versus three Titans

There were a few mistakes that could have saved Circle. Loki had Admonition on him and could have avoided the Sentry charge. Ghetorix also should not have been so far out to get a threshold check.
