Recently in the total war warhammer 2 total waagh update
"Witch Elves on Cauldron of blood and Bloodwrack Shrine:
Riders now use corrected Weapon Profiles, so their daggers will no longer deal the same damage as the vehicle does when ramming into enemies"
So I tried to find the proper units to test this on. Didn't want to test it against anti large units that should be theoretically designed to counter it.
Its an expensive unit at 1400 base so I wanted something relatively high in cost that it would maybe seem worth bringing this unit to counter.
First I tried wildwood rangers and brought their cost to 1200 with chevrons but they decidedly beat the anti infantry cauldron that had a reading in game saying this is a low threat target for the cauldron.
I next tried the 1500 norsca giant against these wildwood rangers and the giant won.
Next I tried marauder champions with great weapons 1100 cost (an infantry unit most people think are not very good) and they decidedly beat the 1400 anti infantry cauldron.
Still looking for a relatively expensive infantry unit for this new cauldron to counter I moved down to
1000 point marauder champions with axe and shield thinking the cauldron would surely beat this.
nope they beat the new cauldron too.
Then I went back to the wildwood rangers again and lowered the chev to 1000 nope they still beat the new cauldron.
Now I took all the chevron off and went with base 900 wildwood rangers really thinking at least it can beat these.
TLDR So far I have not found an expensive infantry unit the new rebalanced cauldron of blood can beat.
Surely if this is going to be the new balance for the unit it should have a price decrease?
