    Ghorst. Not even joking.

    Good pick, I never understood the hate for him. I always have a blast as Ghorst.

    The White Dwarf easily.

    Strongest blue tree in the game bar none. OP starting units. A combat monster. Fun unique campaign mechanic. The absurdly strong "MIght Beard of Defence" skill. 4 whole quest chains that make you play the Dwarf campaign in a unique way. (Like doing to defend Kraka Drak early on) Perfect voice acting.

    Just a great character all around that's a blast to use and immensely powerful.

    Alarielle.

    Love her start location. Love her playstyle. I think she's also my spirit animal.

    Why Ghorst? I love necromancers in the WH setting, I got involved in warhammer as a teenager just after the 4th edition undead book was released and have just kinda thought they were super cool ever since. Ghost is basically a generic necromancer with a bit of spice, similar to Kemmler but kemmler has the chaos allegiance which ruins the whole vibe for me. On top of that Ghorst's mechanics really jive with how I like to play strategy games. Things I look for in a faction are; attrition, powerful support and healing, summoning, magic focus, dude ticks all my boxes. I think he's got weaker lately, having to be in combat to trigger his aura hit him particularly hard. I feel like that was an unintended side affect of the needed nerf to Mortis engines but he's so unpopular that noone not even CA care that they accidentally gimped one of the already most poorly performing lords.

    Fay chantres. Have 15% ward save at 15 rank, 45 wind of magic from self skiils.
    Had bound skill that buff attack of unit by 44,mortis engine aura and - 5 attack aura.
    Had skill that gave to any lord 10% ward if he followed by hero, and buff to grail units 5 attack and MD.
    And main thing she had 15% repleshment faction wide that made bretonia realy plesure to play faction.

    Wulfrik the Wanderer

    The living embodiment of being able to back up every prideful word spoke. And in Wulfriks case, that pride has no limit. He's a born leader, and a warrior with hardly an equal. And surely no equal to whom hasn't a metric ton of advantages through either their gods favor or relics of power. The man is just that, a man. Even on TT this is represented by him being less powerful base stats than a standard Chaos Lord, he was only a hero option. Wulfriks big thing was picking out one character from the opponents ranks and declaring that that guy will not make it out the fight alive. And he was **** good at it. His only supernatural "gift" from the gods of Chaos is that of Tongues, the ability to speak a challenge that cant be ignored in any language. Even to the creatures and monsters of the Warhammer world. But once that challenge is sent the inevitable victory is all him. Not some blessing of the dark gods, or Sigmars intervention. Just an angry Maruader Champion looking to prove that he's the best there is.

    THE KING IN THE NORTH!!!!!

    Throgg, King of Trolls, Master of Combat, Philosopher Extraordinaire.

    If we ever got forum icons for all the LL's factions (which will never happen because we are the forgotten) I would switch to Wintertooth in a heart beat.

    Love Norsca, love monsters, love Throgg. I'm **** that he is missing his troll buffs in the current beta patch. Also kinda sad Throgg doesn't speak with eloquence like he does in the lore. I almost said "with eloquence that would put an elf to shame" but he already does that in game. I am still just so pumped to have him in the game when I originally thought I would never see him because there are so many WoC characters.



    Second is Harkon because he has the best personality of all the LLs. After that one of the Skaven LLs but it is hard to pick a favorite.

    Edit: I always forget that word is censored

    Queek considering over half of my 800hrs game time in WH2 has been spent in his campaign.

    ...But Luthor Harkon is pretty damn awesome too
  • KelefaneKelefane Posts: 767Registered Users
    Grimgor
    Malekith
    Alith Anar
    Tyrion
    Kroq-Gar
    Queek
    The One Eye

    Yeah that's 7, but thems my favorites and the ones I have the most fun with.

    This is tough. I am actually not a LL (or big monster lover) so it is hard to choose, plus all my WH1 playthroughs are a few years back.

    Nope, am foxed. Can't call this one (or DLD's big monster thread).

    Sorry.

    Well well well well well ... youngling.... stolen my next idea he !? Hahaha you know I have to send the witch hunter to you now you understand that right ?


    Haha but of course I will participate in my own game, this one is easy as can be ..

    THE FAY ENCHANTRESS!

    Why ?

    She is first of all beautiful, but don't let her beauty fool you because she is deadly. I promise you.

    If my mind serves correct, she is the ONLY one in the game with the awakening of the wood spell upgraded and thus overcast. Its extremely potent, and a very fast recharge rate. Futher then that, her wardsafe can get insane.

    But overall .. Its her style and grace which make her for the best roleplay Lord in the entire game !

    For the lady ! But I can tell you my friend, you have a lot of praying to do to the lady for such heresy you have committed today ;) !


    Ps.

    Just so you know, i am still doing this one as well ! (Nanananana!!) I have a whole list of topics I am still going to do haha ^^ I love to see people seem to like these things though. Atleast I take some joy out of the fact you choose mighty king louen leoncuour! Imagine the blasphamy to the lady if you didn't even pick any Bretonnian Lord!!

    Yes !! nice one !

    I HATE GS, but I got a SPECIAL spot for Wurrzag Ud Ura Zahubu, the Great Green Prophet !! His savage orcs are actually fun.

    If only CA gave us a Savage orc lord, I would all be fine. Then I can finally do a real GS campaign I actually like with using ONLY savage orcs !

    Wurrzag is truly a beast ! he is so strong, and his mount is sooooo much fun, I love the feeling Wurrzag brings with him. A crazy Shaman who is proprally to much on mushrooms and dances and prances around while he truly SLAYS !

    Lol there's a lot of them. All empire lords, especially Karl Franz, Alith Anar, Tyrion, Settra, Ungrim, Skarsnik, Malekith , the game is full of amazing legendary lords. Would be even more amazing if Borgio the Besieger was in the game.

    Believe in humanity!

    Just a great character all around that's a blast to use and immensely powerful.

    Same here. Grombrindal's quest battle monologues are epic trash talk, he has some unique battle and campaign abilities, he hits like a truck, and with the newest build he grants +20% weapon strength to his entire faction against elves. I'm looking forward to starting a new campaign with him where we just wreck every pointy-eared bastard we see. Don't care if they're hippies, preppies, or emos; they all gonn' get got.
    Keep Grombrindal in KaK, K8P should be 10 slots, Dogs of War should be a horde, DoC should be one race- Change my mind

    Give us a Slayer Hero!

    1) Tyrion
    2) Hellebron
    3) Durthu
    4) Orion
    5) Settra
    6) Archaon
    7) Alith Anar
    8) Morathi
    9) Kholek
    10) Sigvald
  • jgmasterjgmaster Senior Member Posts: 483Registered Users
    For Sigmar, for The Empire, for the warhammer!!!

    Karl Franz because:
    - I love Deathclaw
    - I love the voicelines
    - I love the questbattles
    - He was the posterboy of Warhammer 1 and I feld I love with him and Deathclaw at first sight, so epic so gracious, so perfect

    I do not have a favourite, any LL that has magic and is also good at the battlefield is my pick.

    I like my LLs to be best at everything and be multi-purpose.

    Oh **** thats nice

    Why do you love him ?
    For the charge bonus on wheelchairiots of course.

    My pick is Malekith the Eternity King. From a gameplay perspective the guy does everything. He's great at melee with his black dragon. He has the speed, flight, and mass to be wherever you want him. Between dark magic, dragon breath, and gaze of malice he can blow the **** out of anything that can threaten him without ever landing. He has anti-magic just to troll people.

    He cuts upkeep in half for both every T1-2 unit AND your end game AP/AL. Everyone who plays Civ knows the earlier you get your bonus the better it is since that's when you need it. Malekith's bonus not only kicks in on turn 1 it scales into late game. With his econ skill tree he supercharges your already strong slave economy simply by existing. Starting with a siege attacker unit is pretty standard for WH2 LLs but it puts him over a lot of the WH1 ones simply because not having a siege attacker unit is annoying AF. He also starts with a fire sorceress which is for my money the best early game damage lore since burning head is in the first tier of spells, never needs to be overcasted so you only need 1 skill point, and may well be the most mana efficient spell in the entire game against low armor units.
