If you are going to say "better with synergy", I think you need to state what that synergy is.
Ditto for "better with certain opponents". (While this one may seem obvious, its not always obvious for example if a particular faction/tech combination is going to field enough Mechanical units to be worth considering.)
I like that idea. I know that I wrote out some of the synergies, and I think I cover what those synergies are in each of the videos that I have planned (at least I try to). I have started to attach my notes on each set of doctrines at the end of my original post, most of which I actually wrote back before the tyrannosaurus update.

I think I will post the notes for the corresponding tier list when a video goes up on my youtube channel. For example, I just posted my dvar doctrine tier list, and put my notes on those doctrines in this thread about 20 minutes ago.

I think I will try to clarify any of the doctrine that are still a bit vague once all of them have been posted. I got a a couple very busy weeks over the next few weeks.

hello again, I just wanted to let everyone here know that I just posted the last video in tier list series:


I will revisit this topic as new doctrines are introduced, but only after I have had a bit of time to play around with them. I will likely cover the shakarn doctrines in 4 or 5 weeks from now.

Oh and I do want to add the landmark doctrines to the next version of the tier list, but they don't show up in the imperial archive, so I don't know what all of them do. Something tells me that they are all S or A tier, but I want to place them in the right place within the tiers if I am going to add them to my tier list. For example, @An-Dhamun posted this image:


Architect's Touch.jpg

If anybody wants to unlock all the landmark doctrines and send me screenshots of the values that they impact, that would be incredibly helpful. I feel like I may miss one or two if i try to look them all up by myself. Anyways, it would be great if people could post images like this one:

Ok, I think I am going to update my complete tier list to include the doctrines from the Invasions DLC /Diplodocus update over the next week. Not sure when I am going to post it, as I am starting a new job next week, and won't be able to promote my video at 9am PST. But I will keep you all posted here.

So far I have the Shakarn doctrines (6 of them) and the Therian doctrine (1). I have started doing some testing to try and find all of the anomalous doctrines (?). I only know of one, Architect's Touch, which was pointed out to me by @An-Dhamun in this thread. If any of you know about any others, I would really appreciate if you could let me know about them. Due to the nature of generating Anomalous sites, I have a feeling that I have missed at least one or two other doctrines.

Cya later

I play Heritor a lot. And indeed :

Inner Communion (D Tier)
I don't like this doctrine, because allowing all units to carry an extra essence charge can be accomplished through heritors mods that come with additional effects, and is not worth a doctrine slot. (+1 with Synergy)


Need to be "boost". For example, give a max charge like now AND and give ONE charge at the start of each battle.
