With Total War: WARHAMMER II - Rise of the Tomb Kings releasing very soon on the 23rd of January, it's time to look at all the tweaks and changes that are coming alongside it! One of our key focuses this time has been a small free update to the Bretonnians, and senior designer Eva Jobse is here to break it down for us. All that plus the full, extensive list of patch notes are available on our blog here ->

    Old World Legendary Lord Trait Updates

    • Karl Franz:
    o +10 diplomatic relations with Empire Provinces
    o +2 Leadership

    At least Franz got some Diplomacy added to his trait.
    So...the Light's vaunted justice has finally arrived. Shall I lay down Frostmourne and throw myself at your mercy, Fordring?

    "o +10 diplomatic relations with Empire Provinces
    o +2 Leadership"

    my my... kF now "TRULY is the Greatest Statesman of the Old World", capable of negotiating even with the Wood Elves... oh wait...

    Also, iirc in the TT he had the biggest leadership aura, using Ghal Maraz and Death Claw... meanwhile in TW WH, so many other lords can get a bigger one iirc
    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD! Clan Gunnisson! Karak Eight Peaks! JOSEF BUGMAN!"

    CA hates the Empire confirmed. The FLC LL for the new Lord Pack is Gor-Rok. Meaning the Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. And no, moving Balthasar Gelt from Reikland, where he should be, DOES NOT COUNT. If they wanted a LL in the Southern Empire: Marius Leitdorf of Averland or maybe Elspeth von Draken in Nuln...

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    I've got to admit, that's a lot of fixes.

    o Mark of KhorneFlakes: Changed to common, cost reduced to 81.

  • bayesbayes Senior Member Posts: 346Registered Users
    Thats ALOT of patch notes. ALOT of balance changes in particular, thats amazing.
  • ZwirbaumZwirbaum Senior Member Posts: 365Registered Users
    Also this is quite big change IMO -
    o Net of Amyntok has had effect radius removed. Upgraded Net of Amyntok now adds 30m Effect Radius instead of doubling duration.
  • JowenJowen Junior Member Posts: 376Registered Users
    So much good stuff, but I cannot find the part that is supposed to hamper the Dwarvi-tide?
  • KallisteKalliste Posts: 75Registered Users
    did anyone see if they fixed the bug for ME (coop) crash when chaos appears?
  • PrayPray Posts: 1,349Registered Users
    Karl Franz on DeathClaw: +55 ap damage, -15 base damage.
    o +10 diplomatic relations with Empire Provinces
    o +2 Leadership

    ahh i can die now
  • Krzyhar21Krzyhar21 Posts: 44Registered Users
    Did they fixed chaos invasion going for player?
  • FabiFabi Posts: 158Registered Users
    Dragon breaths were nerfed. They were very hit and miss, ranging from insanely strong to quite useless, depending on the situation,.

    Lets hope they didnt nerf them too much.
  • ZwirbaumZwirbaum Senior Member Posts: 365Registered Users
    Also, I can't believe it, Pistoliers Buff? Buffing that hideously OP unit? ;)

    Pistoliers: +1 missile damage, +5 HP, +2 MD

    Looks fantastic, most of the minor issues I had have been addressed. Great job.

    "When in dispute with a hirsute brute, apply the boot with a firm DOOT DOOT"

    Gonna be honest, this sort of thing is what I read the patch notes for.

    All in all it sounds good to me. The proof obviously though is in the pudding. But if we see weakened Dwarfs, better Skaven autoresolve, better Greenskins and a less blobbed up AI it’d go a long way to making the campaigns better. Interesting to see what exactly happens now on the campaign map also but not exclusively related to the changes in climate behaviour.

    Good to see the Brets get a more interesting tech tree. It was almost as completely boring as the Wood Elf one.

    Still the patch falls short on all the other Old World races and I had kind of thought we’d see more than 4 new legendary buildings. But maybe there’s a few new ones coming out of the Tomb King DLC.

    o Garrison armies no longer gain experience from special buildings, rites and lord abilities

    I quite like that one. Triple gold chevron garrisons for Vlads cities always seemed a bit OP.

    No Brayherd stance bugfixes? Oh come on!
