Default Crisis Suit Configuration

Ok guys I have searched the forum and I have came up naught.


I keep hearing people refer to the configurations of their suits as "fireknife" or "burning eye".

Could some one please tell me each of the configurations name and what that configuration is comprised of.

I would prefer if there were know comments on what is good or bad, what I like to do is use trial and error.


Thanks in advance

Hi, check the GW site, Tau part. Most battlesuit configs are described there. I've seen some link here too, but I can't recall any. Pm [mace] or something, he usually has the links...
PM me if you still can't find any.

Cheers!

Hello Blindsight

Did you really try the search feature? With no settings, I just tested it, typing in "Fireknife" and the very first link was this one which is a direct link to a thread that asks this very question and it answers this very question. Now, "Burning Eye" on the other hand, doesn't come up so easily, but instead, I broaden the search to "Crisis Configuration" since you knew it was a configuration, and this time around, about the 7th entry was this one, which contains all the links to the names of Crisis suits.

Those links, included GW's link, another link which is more complete than GW's, as well as a link for a Thread on this subject here at T.O.

The good, bad and ugly of these two configurations is constantly thrown back and forth. Recently, we had several threads, 5 if I remember correctly, on just this subject. I would suggest you try the search feature once more. This time, narrow the search to just the Tau forum and search for "Crisis" and just read until you can't anymore. When I do this, here's what I find:

http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=12803.0 (Thread on Crisis Suits, including their names, uses, etc).
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=12310.0 (The power of Crisis Suits)
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=8137.0 (A stickied thread on Crisis Use)
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=12575.0 (Crisis; Which Weapons are Best)
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=11198.0 (Fireknife; And why you shouldn't use it)
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=12847.0 (Why you should use Helios instead of Burning Eye)

After those threads, I think you'll be well informed on the subject.

Cheers!

Here's a relatively complete summary:
