The role of the Librarian class in Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is to provide unrivaled support that lets you control the battlefield. For instance, if you activate your Teleport’s Warp Charge, you can bring your entire team to a specific location regardless of where they are on the map. This allows you to quickly regroup and strike foes, as opposed to getting caught out in the open.

Smite is mostly a transitional discipline since you’re after the other unlocks. Vortex of Doom, meanwhile, is a massive AoE spell that can easily rip apart most low-tier mobs. Likewise, Psychic Shriek can debilitate a target by lowering their stun meter, allowing you to follow up with an execution for bonus AP. Lastly, if you don’t want to pick up some perks, you can always grab Warp Surge Discipline. Empyrean Dominion helps lower Warp Surge levels so you can avoid incurring debuffs during a mission.
