    The only thing that could possibly upset me about this DLC is shoehorning Throt's creations into the Eshin faction.. that would be painful.

    And why not? Not like Eshin has any of its own stuff to add so clearly they'll have to take from other clans.
    I'm just saying.. it would hurt me..
    Why would they shoehorn it in? You think they'd make Snikch have mad Moulder unit buffing skills and special buildings unlocking Moulder units be specific to his faction?

    If they did an Eshin Lord and Moulder units it would do nothing more than be an Eshin Lord buffing Eshin units and then the Moulder units would unlock for usage for all of Skavendom. I fail to see that being a major problem or even hindering Thrott coming later and having mechanics and skills for his already existing units.
    Except that then you would have to buy a separate DLC to play Throt's DLC campaign with his actual units. Bonus points if Throt's game 3 in which case you need to first buy an entirely different game.
    Or Thrott is FLC in which case they'd just be pulling a staggered Tiktaq'to.

    I do however agree it all sounds very convoluted.

    The one, single clan that has large enough contingent of units to fill out a DLC on its own is Moulder. The other one with something is Skryre but they too are DLC so you can't go that route. So how much Moulder would you get? One or two units? You can't take from Skryre, they are DLC, you don't have anything that fits Eshin, the few ambivalent options are better with Thanquol, so you are left with what? Options that don't ever fit Eshin?

    Add a couple Moulder units, the one thing that Throt has going for him as a character is the units he has created. Lokhir and Tiktaq'to don't have connections with Kharibdyss and the flying unit I forgot the name in reality, but Throt literally functions by his units. How many would you force me to buy as a separate DLC, while only having Rat Ogres and Hellpit Abomination here?

    It does, yes. Hopefully, it's just a red herring.

    Heh, I'm just glad it's Skaven vs Someone and Festtag will not be sullied by too many knife-ears.

    Snitches get stitches, and who gives stitches... Throt.
  • VemberVember Registered Users Posts: 102

    So it’s Deathmaster Snikch versus perhaps Shadowblade? If yes, it would be a big skip-skip on my part, assassins are so far the most boring characters in TWW, at least for me and DE are my least favorite faction so far.

    The good news is that Throt will come later, perhaps with a Kislev crossover LP or something more related to Clan Moulder’s whereabouts - if yes, I couldn’t be more into it!

    DE are my favorite :) hate Lizardmen tho, was hoping this wasn't (yet) another LM update.

    I am very dissapointed. Clan Eshin is FLC material. Developers basically chose the cheapest option they could find.

    Quite the opposite for me

    Eshin. YES please!

    The DLC being only half-polluted by Elves.

    Master Assassins, Eshin Triads, Eshin Sorcerors and perhaps some of the other missing units not related to Moulder. That could make me excited too. Somewhat at least. As it stands Eshin is my favourite Great Clan. Units wouldn't be as flashy as a Moulder LP though I guess.

    Well, if that's the lineup the DLC will be a bust. I hope they're not slavishly adding units that are solely Eshin themed because that's about all units the Skaven are not really in need of.

    This is the biggest red herring CA has done to date. This is an OBVIOUS misdirection tease right here. I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid and i'm still saying its Clan Moulder and Throt (Or even Thanquol)

    Well, the other half is Elf, so that's an automatic put-off.

    OOOOOOHHH yes. My favourite assassin in all skavendom is coming!!

    Nice. Now I’ll stick him in my stacks and he will be my only eshin unit I’ll use. Since I don’t currently use the other ones...but oh man it’s gonna be good!
  • HamadhunterHamadhunter Registered Users Posts: 789
    I am on Kelefane side kind because here.

    RICH confirm already a Fan Favorite will come, so why CA shoudl teaser a no name chrachter?

    Even as Highlight!

    I mean here, as they show P&W the doomsphere, by H&B a recrute paper, both things highlight that was the most unique about the dlc.

    Somehow i still think Thanquol will be the fan favorite LL
  • NameAlreadyExistsNameAlreadyExists Registered Users Posts: 126
    Seems to me, people are overreacting a little bit here...

    DLCs got better and better over time with "the hunter and the beast" being one of the best lord packs so far. I can't see, why this should'nt be the case with the new dlc here aswell, even if it's not covering the Legendary Lord you were expecting.

    I'm looking forward to the the upcoming news and feel pretty confident, that I won't be disappointed by the dlc in the end.

    Master Assassins... yes we really need assassin lords that can'T assassinate, rather than a tankier melee hero like the Chieftain. we really need a third generic wizard character rather than maybe a Grey Seer LL...

    Whilst an ‘assassin’ theme is less interesting than a ‘beastmaster’ theme to me personally, I would much prefer Eshin-themed units to Moulder-themed ones (am tired of monster mash).

    Could be interesting...
