That's an extremely big nerf to the point Ynnari lost its flavour. I don't expect much players to be playing Ynnari now. At least CW Aeldari is far more playable compared to the past (despite their Battlefocus being nonsense).

While I haven't had a chance to test these changes, from a lot of experience playing Ynnari since they were released this change completely decimates their chances of playing as a competitive army. From what was said on the community site, it looks like the reason for this change was the Ynnari were too good compared to the other Eldar factions, however with what they have done there is still no choice, the decision is still as much of a no brainer as it was before the result is just different. Why take Ynnari now, and if you do why take any more than a single small detachment with only a couple of units?

My hope is that they have advanced knowledge of something in chapter approved / Ynnari codex that allows this change to make some more sense. The really annoying part is that we have to wait till that is released and worry that it might not even make it better.

IT'S IMPERIAL PROPAGANDA I TELL YOU!!! Then again, despite the massive nerf, they'll still cry Eldar cheese nonetheless!

That's a tad pants, so Ynnari are basically going to be a small detachment of Yvaine, WotP target unit (Reapers, Wraiths etc) and filler, hopefully we'll see some kind of bloodpoints/tally etc down the line

still worth taking a Ynnari detachment.

finished 2nd at a tournament using the new faq (talk about a last minute change!!)

In the end I didn't change lists, just dropped the Ynnari in one detachment.

It's still useful to some degree, a nice 10man unit of Dark Reapers benefit from Ynnari powers from Yvraine.
