If you go magic heavy, witch one would be best?
I also saw a strange thing comparing these two, Flickering fire of Tzeentch on the deamon lore, it dosenīt say it does flaming attacks as it does in the WoC lore. So it isnīt doing any flaming attacks in the deamon lore then? Even though itīs named exactly the same and with the same casting value?

WoC Nurgle is better than DoC Nurgle
DoC Tzeentch is better than WoC Tzeentch
DoC Tzeentch is better than WoC Nurgle
Slaanesh is mediocre in both.

They are all pretty good lures, the slanneshi lores are both good but woc has the edge woc nurgle is slightly better, while id say DOC tzeentch has a small edge

Slaanesh lore, mediocre?
WoC Slaanesh has the edge over DoC?
Are you MAD, good sirs? Daemon Lore of Slaanesh is utterly fantastic! A strong candidate for best overall lore IMHO.

The Daemon lore of Slaanesh is pretty weak-

-Acquiescence- Ok now the unit is stupid so what most units have an LD above 7 so will rarely fail the test. plus there are so many ways to boost leadership like using a characters Ld it becomes very unreliable.

-Cacophonic caress- Not bad but D6 strength3 hits is not that powerful.Also the random range makes it again very unreliable.

-Succour of chaos- Ok this one is good

-Slicing shards- Not bad again but needing the target to fail a LD test means that most units with average LD are pretty safe from any extra hits. Yes you can use other spells or gifts to lower LD but thats a lot of set up to kill 1 unit.

-Pavane of Slaanesh- Great if they fail a LD test but has the same problem as shards takes a lot of set up.

-Phantasmagoria- This spell is amazing just a shame no one will ever let you cast it if you make the casting roll this is a no brainer dispell scroll use. You really need this spell to make most of your other spells any good so you will have to cast it first so your opponent will have no problem saving a dispell scroll for it.

All in all not the greatest lore ever IMHO

Slaanesh DoC are the best lore in DoC at least. The first spell is so extremely good that it is silly. :) Stupidity, on a unit. For the rest of the game... My god, what do you all think happens when your -2Ld bsb are coming to town?

The WoC Tzeentch rocks the DoC beacause;
Easier to cast, since all MoT guys are blessed with +1 to cat. And ability to have more.
Then, the spell to rule all other spells except pit of shades... PANDAMONIUM. Probably the most useful spell int the game, Doom and Darkness as #2.

Slaanesh DoC does require alot of failed ld tests yes...

But that has snynergy with the reduced ld effects of the army as a whole.
