    Yes it is worth taking them. I prefer Terradons for Starborne and Rippers for Coalesced. The extra jaw attack helps them a lot.

    Yes, I mean, skink hero can both give them innate +1 to-hit and command reroll 1's. Burning head can do the same, without spending CP.

    I thought they were skink keyword too, but someone told me they weren't, and then showed me the old book. Mandela effect?

    They could be added to a unit of skinks like rat ogors and clanrats.

    So what units are the top damage dealers now? Krox, sallies, terradons? But who is the complete winner?

    I can't fight the feeling that salamanders will surpass everything. Good hit and wound both in melee and ranged, pretty cheap, lots of abalative wounds, up to 15 attacks in melee with the same profile, rend and mortal wounds. They may be very mobile and, more importantly, a ranged units. Melee units can be made to fight last and just be killed before attacks. There are way less ways to defend against salamanders. Probably, a pack of razordons still worth it, because of superior range - they can be nice hero killers.

    As for terradons - they are great, but one use only and very-very squishy. By the way, 6 bola terradons are 6d6 shots 4+, 3+ - 1 for 180 points, which is about old razordons effectiveness, but way faster, more wounds, worse save but mortal wounds bombardment.

    There is no such thing as a top damage dealer anymore. Something like old Shadowstrike Rippers towering above the rest don't exist anymore. Which indicates very good internal balance and gives you lots of flexibility in listbuilding, slotting in damage while keeping secondary characteristics like points efficiency, footprint, range, speed etc. in mind.

    Top choices - just alphabetical order:
    Salamanders
    Saurus Knights
    Saurus Warriors
    Skinks
    Terradons

    Honorable mentions:
    Carnosaurs
    Ripperdactyls
    Stegadon Chieftain

    I agree with your assessments.

    What is best will be meta dependent for us.

    This makes me feel like a unit of Terradons will be more useful lots of high performing armies have good saves so their valuable units wont be wounded enough I fear even with buffed rippers.
    I have 6 rippers made, with 4 more.boxes incoming could could make 12 terra and keep the 6 tippers or split it 9 and 9.

    dont forget you will also need to make one chief for each if you really want to be able to use them effectively.

    Nice! I'll definitely have to take a look at that link. In the meantime I have bought 3 more flyers, I have no idea if I will be using rippers or terras, or either!...but I felt like I wanted the option so here I am XD
