Hover: Ground, starting height or relative.


Recommended Posts

Hey! So for vehicles like the AAT and Saber tank, when you move to go over terrain that you're taller than, do you use your height relative to where you are on the board, or where you would be on ground level? The section in repulsor vehicle is worded exactly like the same entry in the regular trooper entry.


Repulsor:
While performing a standard move, reverse, or strafe, a repulsor vehicle mini can move onto or over a piece of a terrain that has a height that is equal to or less than the height of the unit leader’s mini.

Trooper:

 While performing a standard move, a trooper mini can move onto or over a piece of terrain that has a height that is equal to or less than the height of the unit leader’s mini.

So can a Hover: Ground vehicle use terrain as a ladder like troopers, or is there a fixed height they can go over?

Hey there,

If there is a gap between two separate pieces of terrain then moving over terrain is not relative. The reason it's relative for other repuslors is the speeder keyword – which has been changed to be worded like jump, and explicitly allows them move from one piece to another relative to their current height. 

If the terrain is one piece multiple levels, then it's relative to the unit's current height. This is the same for troopers. 

For example, if you have a trooper unit on the roof of large building and there's a slightly raised portion, you wouldn't treat it like that unit has to climb as if it was at ground level to move onto the slightly higher area. 

To simplify this, if the repulsor is crossing a gap between two pieces of terrain and it doesn't have the speeder keyword, it has to legally be able to move on to the second piece of terrain from the battlefield, not from the height of the first piece of terrain.
