Wood Elves should get Amber from Quests

I thought I remembered Darren or someone mentioning you can get Amber from quest battles. Can anyone confirm?

Ssal came up with this awesome idea in another thread:
Ssal said:

Another option would be to get additional amber from quests that take place beyond the forest or hunting down key enemies of AL like the beastmen...

I think this is an amazing idea, and would love to confirm if you can in fact get Amber from random quests or if there is any chance CA can add this before release.

I think a rare chance to get Amber from random quests (perhaps 5-10) Amber rewards over the course of an average campaign would really fit the Wood Elves and make the whole Amber system much better.

Edit: Changed thread title as a couple of people have said you do get Amber from QBs

    Maybe from quest battles
  • MerciiMercii Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 944
    I like the idea of the Wood Elves apparently randomly attacking other factions when they have a quest to do so, it just seems so Wood elf.

    Dunno, I guess we cut a down a shrub or something?"

    Would give you a reason to actually pay attention to the quests too.

    Good idea. Bumped.

    You already get amber from quest battles. Re watch the WE campaign gameplay.

    Darren did say this.

    I doubt that you can lose what you haven't gained.

    It's pretty cool that you can get Amber from quest battles but I think what @Ssal was suggesting was that some of the NORMAL randomn quests could gve you Amber.

    The quest rewards are a bit boring in this game, didn't we used to get free units or ancilleries and stuff sometimes in previous total wars?

    Awesome idea, especially if during the wild hunt razing could give you extra amber.

    That way you could play as Wood Elves do in the lore iirc: Burst out of Athel Loren form time to time, devastate and then return to the forest. An incentive to fight, but not to build a big empty empire of watchtowers.

    I really hope CA implement this
  • MerciiMercii Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 944
    I'm guessing CA might be a bit wary of giving too much Amber too early and unbalancing the campaign. But I think a 1 Amber reward, rarely, a few times during the campaign would be ok.

    I imagine it would be pretty easy (comparitively) to add some more exciting quest rewards like this and I think it would add quite a bit of replayability.

    Units as rewards would be really cool too. A unit of pistoliers or something early in the campaign for example is way more exciting that 1000g or some +rep with a faction.
