    Sisters of Twilight or Riot!

    Booking the first two, not sure about the third.

    Throt makes more sense paired with a Beastmen.

    And considering Ariel's beef with Morathi, I'd say Wood Elves are better paired with Dark Elves.

    This would be disappointing. Sisters for DLC and Ariel for bonus lord!

    That's what I'm thinking too but then Skaven have an obvious hole in the roster while DE don't have much units to add even when you're digging deep.

    Throt vs Ariel + Drychy as FLC legendary lord make most sense. Also, I hope Sisters of Twilight and Ghoritch will be new legendary heroes in this lord pack. B)

    Liu Chong and He Yi should be playable in 194.

    Yeah DEs would be kinda meh, especially since their LL choices all seem very much FLC tier at best imo.

    I think Loremaster of Soteks idea of Thrott going after Acorn of Ages is a really good one.

    Well, you're quite right. The DE's roster is pretty much complete. Problem is, how can you pair Throt with Wood Elves? They have nothing in common, while Throt vs Beastmen is a pretty easy match.

    Unless their is some beast hunter in the missing WE lord pool that I'm missing?

    Loremaster of Sotek's vid today claimed the WEs clash very often in the lore, and also suggested that Thrott may well be after some Acorn of Ages - which in the lore turned a squirrel into something that threatened the King's Glade, Thrott's interest in them would be fairly obvious.

    In my opinion the DLC will be Drycha vs Throt

    Ariel is a bonus for those with the original DLC. After all, the most attractive character must be the one with the most payment walls.

    The objective of what they are doing with the elves is to force people to buy the content of TW: Warhammer 1 at the same time that they return to sell elves to people who already bought them at the time and avoid complaints from both parts.

    Drycha is FLC LL (highly likely) as they hinted “all the trimmings” and we know CA loves a pun!



    Lore master of Sotek pointed this out and also seems convinced.

    My level of English does not reach the point of associating strange words with things.

    Anyway for me Drycha is the most interesting character in the wood elves.

    So, I think this is the most likely scenario. Unfortunately, “most likely” rarely seems play out when CA releases Warhammer DLC.

    All I know is Ariel is probably gonna be one of the lords. Most likely the free one owners of original dlc will get since she should be tied to the oak which is only in Mortal Empires. Perhaps with a "Defender of Athel Loren" mechanic like Alarielle has for Ulthuan.

    I am lost how does Drycha relate to trimmings? (Not saying she doesn't just I don't get the connection)

    Isnt the WH2 faction only getting a revisit though? I assumed it is only mechanisms not new units? If so not really suited for a clan Moulder pack? Otherwise yes that be great of course!

    Yet DE need the most rework IMO. Its just that they seem to be complete in terms of roster, which make sense if a revisit is only a rework of mechanisms...Some black Arks rework is needed.

    Maybe Ariel is trimming herself down there...

    You trim a tree to make it look more presentable. Tree trimmings would be the leaves and detritus left over.

    It is a bit of a belabored pun but I can see why people would think that way.

    It's a regular LP bro. By revisit they mean they are going back to a faction that's already been done before. Basically any WH2 faction would be a revisit at this point because they have all received LPs and touch ups. Skaven lack the most. That's why they are the popular pick for being one of the two LLs vs a Wood Elf.

    Ah ok, hope for clan moulder then!

    Didn’t someone from CA say they wanted more Beastmen presence in Naggaroth? It’s almost 1am here so I’m to tired to find a link to it but that sets up Beastmen vs DE as the final DLC of WH2 (with Rakarth and his beasts theme).

    Skaven and Wood Elves fought all the time in the lore, although not Throt specifically. Makes sense that Moulder units and theme are the basis for this DLC (it’s the most obvious hole in any faction’s roster in the game).
    More LL for Wood Elves please.
