    I have a couple artifact rules questions.

    1. Can the EotG have combat artifacts? For example, in a recent game, I gave it the Serpent God Dagger. But, in looking back at the warscroll, and searching some topics online, I'm not sure if I can do that.

    2. The Arcane Tome reads that it allows the hero to cast Mystic Shield or Arcane Bolt. Does it say somewhere else that you can take generic spells, like Flaming Weapon, or army specific spells, like Hand of Glory, in addition? I couldn't find that, but even the AoS app allows it.

    Thank you!

    1. yes it can but only on the priests dager.
    2. the tomb makes some one a wizard and all wizards get a free spell from either the general ones or the books spell lores

    1. Thanks. Not to nitpick, but the priest's dagger doesn't have an attack profile on the warscroll. I know the Skink Chief on Steg has an attack profile, but the EotG priest does not. That's leading me to think that the EotG can't take a combat artifact? That would be a bummer...

    2. Thanks again. I assumed that was kind of how the Tome worked. It's description seems a bit vague to me and I wish that was a bit more clear. But, I guess you can just read the section on Wizards in the rules, and maybe they didn't feel the need to repeat.

    It can it just doesn't actually do anything because there's no weapon for it to impact.

    Cloak of Feathers is too good to pass up anyways.

    That's disappointing. Cloak of Feathers is good though. In my specific situation, it was a 1K battle and the EotG was the toughest hero I had (Starseer & Starpriest were my others). Plus, I tried a 1-drop army this battle and I didn't have any extra artifacts to go around. I hate that messed that up b/c it did affect the game. I killed an opposing general with the Dagger's special feature.

    As an extension of this topic; I assume the EotG couldn't use the Sacred Stegadon Skull for the extra damage to melee attacks either?

    I wouldnt sweat it, everyone missplays a rule at some point.

    for steg helm, you'd be correct but you do get the +1 save tho.

    the only artefact that could rival the cloak, is the rectrices.
    a 50% chance to have the EotG (or the stegadon chief) back in the game at full life is not bad, and by experience, often it fills with indecisions and doubts your opponent ("I should dedicate precious resources to get rid of that thing. But what if it comes back?!?")
