| Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex |
Among the most important but demanding tasks carried out by the living priests of the Convergence is the deployment of algorithmic dispersion arrays—devices that increase the reach of a warcaster’s arcane spells well beyond normal tolerances. By carefully modulating the dispersion array’s frequencies, the optifex acts as a transmitter through which the warcaster can bolster his battlegroup or strike down enemy targets.

Thoughts on Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex
Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex in a nutshell
Four words: very cheap arc node. Cue mad scientist cackling.
Combos & Synergies
- Syntherion always needs a couple: his armies are vector-heavy, so you need to extend your casting range to support them; most important, Magnetic Hold is a powerful spell but has medium-short range, so casting it directly will often get him killed.
- Other warcasters (except Directrix who should just try and squeeze in a Diffuser or Galvanizer) will want to extend their casting range.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- It has no offensive output whatsoever - don't overload your army with support pieces!
- It's very fragile, even an Electroleap is enough to kill it
Tricks & Tips
- You can run and channel. So they are faster than they look.
- They can be kept back and used to apply buffs so you can split your battlegroup.
Released in Forces of Warmachine: Convergence of Cyriss (2013)
