But your not counting all his other utilities with his other spells. Its a tunnel vision way to look at the flow between each faction and trying to look at class to class. Orks are able to stack poison from multi able angles, pain boy adding to the overall, and being a good mix of strong melee with a somewhat decent pistol if he picks targets. Need to look at the entire faction along with the skills and abilities of their support, and it'll be clearer how their roles are meant to be. I dont discount any of your argument, just that its not complete. And to be a Beacon Apoth costs alot of Lp making you sacrifice your dps or your armor. Making him less offensive as a whole either way, and already being part of this idea yall have about making his bolter unmodable.
