Lizard Skaven DLC cancelled, as is the Lizardlord
Instead we'll be releasing a DLC to make Blood Knights, Lahmia, and the really ugly ghoul vampires playable, along with an FLC of Elspeth von Draken, who we're making a Vampire Count for obvious reasons
Warhammer 3 will introduce our own homebrew elf vampires, dwarf vampires, orc vampires, chaos vampires, and rat vampires.

I don't follow MP or know much about it, but aren't greenskins hot fucking trash right now?
What the fuck would nerfing them accomplish?
>>
Why is there only 1 set of stats instead of having different stats for MP and SP?

Holy fuck. The campaign is not meant to be "balanced". The whole point about TW campaigns is asymmetry.
>>
>>240653693
They're shit in campaign they're good in MP.
Same happened with lizardmemes, now they got gutted beyond fucking belief.
>>
So, Royal Pegasusfags are grailfags but the Royal Hippogryphfags aren't?
>>
>>240653693
I'm not a metafag but they are generally pretty ok as long as you pick wurrzag, you get near constant ma buffs off with his staff, a net w/ effigy, and waaagh as well. They are much better in mp than sp because units that are useless in sp like spider riders/archers are much more viable

My original post was specifically referring to vindictive glare, which is op as hell atm and goblin casters can fucking obliterate any character that is unarmored in just a couple of casts. Go watch some of turin's 2v2 streams when players pick greenskins to see what I'm talking about

>>240653778
theoretically there are 2 thanks to the presence of the mp-only unit costs, but CA is completely unwilling to actually use that to balance the 2 modes separately, so you end up with units/abilities/magic getting completely fucking gutted by mp centric changes

You mean like Archaon is for Wulfrik right now? In any case TWW3 will be chorfs, daemons, ogors and NAGASH. Daemons in the north, Nagash in the south, chorfs in the middle and ogors in the east. Kislev or dogs of snore will be DLC and set in the west of the map so that the whole map is filled out from the border of the great maw to the world's edge mountains and the wastes to the dragon isles.

I like how the dorf cavalry-equivalent not only takes at least 50 turns before you can recruit it, but it is also literally only useful when chasing down fleeing units and almost useless while in an actual battle.

Playing belegar now, want to have dorf commandos flank the enemy like wood elves do.

AR puts heavy weight on unit rank. All of your units are multiple silver chevrons, most of his are not ranked except for those goldbois. So AR gave you a high rating that doesn't necessarily matter as much when fought manually.

Skaven, DElfs and Kangz are my favorite factions thematically.
But I'd say out of the three, Skaven has the most underwhelming faction mechanics for sure. There's no real way to upgrade menace from bellow and the suicide bombers don't seem to ever do much.

Manfred stabbed Gelt in the back just as Nagash and the rest of the spell casting Incarnates were about to close the portal Archaon had opened, obliterating everything as of ET, prior to that he was sired by Vlad/Neferata or a Lahmian and ran off to study with the Necrarchs and there is some lore that was written in character.

Mannfred plotted to sabotage the ritual so Nagash wouldn't return at full-strength, then he plotted at every opportunity to overthrow Nagash and become his own master again. He never really got the chance to put it in motion but Nagash and Arkhan were both aware he never had any loyalty.

Well lets see.
Black borders everywhere instead of stylized borders? Check
Flat bold letters to make it better see on your phone? Check

Have you actually played a mobile game that arent waifu collecting mobage? Because this looks like Age of War or whatever those youtube ads call it.

>>240705998
Med 2 maps had caravans, animals, and people walking all over the map. Later TWs removed that and it looks even more simplistic here.

>>240706271
Even ToB had it. Maybe play some new TWs other than WH first before talking shit. 3 kingdoms will have it.
>>
>>240706137
>Tiny font and icons looks like a mobile game UI!
>>
>>240706137
2 reasons for the black. First it's a stylistic choice to replicate chinese ink paintings and 2, from a design point of view, you want to have things you are going to read on dark solid colours/black. They've made the map so colourful that they need a background for the UI or it's going to get lost in the map. This is basic shit, anon.
>>
>>240706409
Rome 2 and Attila didnt have it, only in the battle maps. ToB was made by an oldfag modder but that game flopped. What makes you think CA will copy it?

>>240706271
There's little caravans and ships moving around the map in the videos. Are you blind?

Shogun 2 was colorful too but its UI was the best ever in TW and it sure as hell isnt this simplistic and boring.

It had the same design approach. Pick a theme, japanese banners, and put your ui on it so everything is clear to read.

Thanks for a good advice.
I also have Invocation of Vaul active so maybe I will even be able to kill some towers and depth guard with it, if they put them on walls.
>>
>>240715623
Would be hard, if you can get rid of the towers by using teclis and that lore master as bait via using the arty you got, following by using your archers to get rid of anyone they can out range, you should be able to. By the time you get on the walls, they should be weak to such a point of no challenge.
>>
>>240715870
I only have 4 fireballs, and my Teclis is for some reason very awful at casting them. He always misses. Maybe if I break the gate and try to fry some dudes that stand behind it.
>>
>>240715942
Nvm, looking that the garrison, hella easy
>>
>>240716028
I would put teclis on the walls after you get inside. Then fire from above. Bolt spells are noted as being more accurate from above because they have no arc.
>>
>>240715942
Well, with 600 hours of playtime I'm pretty good at cheesing sieges. It's just the first time I play high elves or play against Harkon. So I'm pretty bad at measuring their strength against each other.
>>
>>240716131
I'm not sure it's such a good idea. Teclis is so squishy, previously in this campaign he got killed by 3 fireballs and got almost killed when I put him against bleakswords lol.
>>
>>240646650
Hey guys i'm currently playing TK Khalida and I have lots of questions.

1. Is it worth it to conquer Teclis and unsuitable climate regions?

2. If I damage a building capital (the one w garrison) w/ Liche Priests action does it disable the garrison?

3. After conquering the lizard and dark elf where do I go next?

4. What's the best unit comp? Do I just mass archers? How do I use chariots effectively?
>>
>>240713259
That's not even the worst part. You can only recruit a maximum of 6 untis per retinue so if you want a full stack, you need to bring two other generals for 21 units total.

>>240716247
When the coast is clear atleast. But yeah, Teclis is the only lord that feels fragile.

>>240716749
Dont bother until you're able to deal with the climate penalties
No, damage building is basically worthless
Wherever you want, really. Go hunt for more books or just go bully some faction you dont like
Chariots require constant attention and micromanagement. You have to constantly keep them moving and looking for something they can run straight through. Never let them get stuck in, either pick a target they can run through, or cycle charge the enemy's frontline. Only keep them in for a few seconds before pulling out and charge again

R2 and attila may generate maps that are on the surface level similar due to how the terrain might be in areas where you are fighting battles, but they are not exactly the same like the ones in wh/wh2. Remember how in r2/attila you could load a map in custom battle by selecting a bit of terrain on the little campaign map they had, which would then generate a battlemap reflecting what the game would create for said location in the campaign? That is no longer the case in wh, and instead you are playing on the same rotation of pre-made maps that are simply placed in tilesets on the campaign, meaning you are literally fighting on the same battlemaps every time

No, but it's basically a soft-fantasy game. Chinese history is balls out of control, I kind of wish instead of low hanging fruit (pop culture phenomena Three Kingdoms).

600CE - 1000CE, had alot of stuff going on, with Tang dynasty fighting with Tibet, Islamic influences from the west, Japan, migratory peoples from Russia, etc. Map could have stretched from the Sea of Japan to the Caspian.

Any thoughts on a starting build? Is lone wolf still hilariously overpowered and game breaking?
>>
>>240738428
Yes you have, brainlet.
We're not talking custom battle here. On the R2 campaign map you were battling on pre-made maps, just as you are in WH / WH2. This was especially noticeable in siege battles, where there were only 5 or 6 settlements, no matter where you were on the map. In the North I found myself seigeing the same map 5 times in a row attacking different settlements with 3 different armies against 4 different tribes.
Taking Italia, every coastal town was the same map, even down to the direction of the sea, no matter which side of the coastline I was on.

You didn't, I said "Especially noticeable in siege battles"
But field battles were just as pre-selected in Rome 2 as they are in the Warhammer games, no matter how much you want to pretend otherwise. Grassland, Mountains, Sand, Light Forest, Dense Forest. All the same with very, very minor variations like a farm or road on the field. Warhammer has the same.
>>
>>240738818
Siege battles are always static. WH 2 has static field battles as well, while R2, Attila and WH1 didn't
They are generated based on the campaign map position and terrain you're fighting on

>>
>>240739195
Minor variations are still better than fighting the same fucking static map in WH2. This is especially bad when terrain like jungles in Lustria has only 3 maps for regular battles, 2 for chokepoints, 1 for ambush and 1 for sallying out or no wall settlements.
>>
>>240739259
*Sigh*
Yes they fucking were. They were generated according to map position, but there was a limited selection for the AI to choose from.
This is a fact. WH2 simply has a slightly more limited selection,

If you didn't like characters like Tyrion, Malekith, Durthu and other strong lords soloing armies in warhammer, you're probably not going to like 3K.

Considering Malekith actually does think the real threat is Teclis, not that hard to arrive to that conclusion.

I liked that quest battle a lot. In the beginning, Teclis says that Malekith got scared to arrive at the battle, because prophecy says he'll be killed by the elven mage... But then after you defeat the initial force, Malekith goes "fuck it" and joins the battle anyway. It was cool.

Because like most TW games it has an extremely shallow campaign and most of the enjoyable parts can be done doing a custom battle. CA doesn't care to improve it though because 90% of their fanbase play the game for 20 hours before they're done with it.

5% miscast chance isn't much but its really baffling that you are pretty much forced to take a negative trait for killing an enemy lord.

Like, why?

I don't care, Teclis already has a very low miscast chance, and if he does miscast, it almost doesn't do any damage.
Also he has the best potion in the game.
+15 winds of magic for me and -10 for the enemy is MUCH more important.

Teclis is one of those faction that starts off tough, but then turns into a steamroll, simply because he starts on the edge of the map safe from two sides. It's the same with Alith (the seas around his peninsula might as well be an edge, since noone attacks from there save for nothern delves once a millinia) or most tomb king factions.

Not mentioning the fact that Skaven and Vampire Coast aren't very strong opponents.

This is the biggest problem with the game imo.. My favourite factions are Empire and Bretonnia, and i just know i'll be fighting vampires and an occasional mammoth stack for 100 turns until i paint the entire map red (or blue), then i'll skip next 50 turns waiting for the garbage tier chaos armies to spawn. CA needs to do something about their balancing.
>>
>>240755851
I love the backpeddaling he did once people pointed out the island battle mod came out 1 month earlier and people generally agreeing that Lokhir is Tretch tier low effort. The island battle and vampire pirates didn't have to be included in the same patch, but they did for a theme. They could have easily added the islands in any patch along the line.

>>240756406
To expand on this, i just want the map to have some semblance of stability where the AI "good" factions in the old world don't get straight up removed by turn 70... Let them hold their own until the chaos invasion, some of them might die because they got unlucky, sometimes they would wipe out their enemy, but it should be even in the end.
It would unlock some actualy varietye for the player's faction, so for example, Empire could pick between burning down norscans, removing vampires or hunting greenskins, Bretonnians could launch crusades into wherever they want. Just let me have fun in the damn game instead of manualing vampire armies for ten hours.
