How would that effect the fliers' ability to do damage to units on the wall? Would they still be treated as if they're attacking from the same elevation or higher? Or would they now be attacking enemies with a +4 defense bonus?
In order to grant cover bonus, the fliers would need to be in front of the targets they're protecting at at the same level as the targets who are firing. The elves' would not get an elevation defense bonus, but neither would the fliers. Flier damage is thus unchanged, but their life expectancy may drop significantly.

Yes, they would be flying it in, and if they do so at max elevation, they would retain their FEB.
Swodaems wrote:And can they still Fire while carrying it?
No. Wielding or transporting the ram requires both hands, leaving none free to work a bow and arrow.

Yes, the love relationship can be abused. The Healer and Commander might behave irrationally regarding each other.
