Default Which craftworld will survive longest?

It is a common belief that the eldar are a dying race on the whole, however what i want to know is which craftworld do you think will survive the longest if the eldar faced a major widespread crisis, that could threaten their existance?

What about the ulthwe their large number of farseers and warlocks has lead to reports of them changing the future by using their powers to influence major campaigns. with that kind of power i think they could survive a long while

i think ulthwe would be the first to go being honest with you. they're the closest to the EoT, and would probably throw themselves into whatever came out of it. i think they see themselves as the guardians of the EoT.

Yeah but if you look at the strike force rules they use tactical withdrawal to prevent mass casualties, the ulthwe underdstand the price of blood shed. the point im trying to make is that because they are guardians of the EoT doesnt it sound stupid to kill them off first?

Alaitoc is well away from most major threats now isn't it?

Plus there are many craftworlds which have just set off away to and beyond the edges of this Galaxy where they believe they will be safe/safer.

But if its just from the list then:

Alaitoc because of they way it goes about things, it is very cautious and is ages away from threats.

Biel-tan makes a nuisance of itself which could result in its downfall despite its power, plus they engage and fight so much, I don't think they can keep this up forever when you think of how few Eldar are being born etc and how long it takes for them to mature.

Iyanden will fall to any other big (ish) threat that hits it.

Ulthwe is in a dangerous place, it plays games with too many people and races and uses them. Many of which know this and aren't happy with Ulthwe etc. Still they have quite close ties with the Imperium and have helped them without backstabbing them (at least instantly, unlike Biel-tan) so the Imperium is unlikely to try and take it down anytime soon.

The fact that ulthwe have the largest numbers, and the strongest psychic leads me to believe they will survive the longest.

I think either Alaitoc or Ulthwe would survive for the greatest amount of time.

-Saim Hann are too proud and eager to jump into battle to survive for very long.

-Biel-Tan look for trouble, which as Veq said, will probably be their downfall. Also, they seem to be trapped in a part of the webway that has broken off and seperated from the rest, so they are in a sense 'trapped' in one reigon of space.

-Iyanden are dying out already.

-Ulthwe can see the future the clearest, and so can avoid danger if it comes their way.

-Alaitoc is miles away most of the time anyway.

I don't think that the Craftworlds will be slowly killed off anyway, they will fight together in the Rhanda Dandra.
