* LaserSight: T'au make extensive use of "markerlights" that improve other units' chances to hit an enemy target, or to [[{{Roboteching}} guide seeker missiles]].

* AttackDrone: Unlike the Imperium, the T'au make extensive use of artificial intelligences as worker or battlefield drones, and have so far avoided the [[AIIsACrapshoot robot rebellion]] problem.

Added DiffLines:

* EqualOpportunityEvil: More AmbiguouslyEvil than anything else, but this is still one of their most positive traits. The T'au won't care who you are or where you come from. As long as you're willing to fight for the Greater Good, they'll treat you with the same respect as any other of their kin.

* HorseOfADifferentColor: Knarlocs, which are Kroot-derived pack hunting beasts that walk on two legs and use their short fore arms to grasp prey,[[note]](think of the [[Film/JurassicPark popular conception]] of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velociraptor velociraptors]] for a good visualization of it)[[/note]] are often used as cavalry mounts by the Kroot. The Knarloc's pack mentality and relative intelligence makes them ideal for domestication and their viciousness as hunters makes them ideal for combat. A good Knarloc is a source of prestige to other Kroot.

* CloseRangeCombatant: Their biggest direct-combat strength, and the primary reason that the T'au employ them. However, they are not so specialized in to to the point of being unable to do anything else, but on the other hand [[MasterOfNone they are only moderately good at it by the standards of other dedicated assault troops]]. They are relatively fragile due to [[FullFrontalAssault not wearing armor]], but they do use [[FragileSpeedster their speed and quick-contracting muscles]] to rain [[GlassCannon several hard-hitting blows]] with the many [[BayonetYa bayonets]] on their [[BladeOnAStick long Kroot rifles]].

** Finally, Arthas Moloch happens, where not only does Farsight learn of the existence of the Forces of Chaos, as well as the Ethereals efforts to cover it up, but his entire assigned contingent of Ethereals is slaughtered to a man. This irrevocably shatters any remaining illusions Farsight may have had of the Ethereals being benevolent or worthy leaders. While he goes into self-imposed exile to avoid destroying his own people, his followers refuse to leave him, instead founding the Farsight Enclaves around his new ideals.

** Kroot have no dedicated urinal or rectal orifaces; any indigestible components (which are very few to them) are regurgitated up through the mouth. This also serves as a birth canal (see below). They also have multiple stomachs, quill-like sensory organs on the backs of their head (and in other places), and distinctly inhuman musculature that makes them a lot stronger than they look.

* IWorkAlone: Some Crisis Battlesuit pilots adopt what is known as the Monat pattern: fighting by themselves (except perhaps for drones) and diving right into the thick of battle unsupported. Puretide's third student was apparently one, as Farsight refers to him as 'Monat-Kais' in flashbacks in the ''Farsight'' novella.

Added DiffLines:

* OrnamentalWeapon: T'au Bonding Knives carried by Fire Warrior team leaders. These are ceremonial blades, meant to mark the team as [[BloodBrothers bonded by the Ta'lissera ritual]], and it would be highly improper to actually use such a sacred knife on one's enemies. Its presence is more to remind the team of their bonds to one another, helping them rally through even the worst of conditions.
