    Will be Beastlord Rakarth, who took the beasts of Athel Loren. The Sisters will follow him




    Rakath have no place anymore, malus literally took his theme.

    Only chance he have is, when ca rework malus and make rakath as flc for the shadow and the blade dlc.

    Else. no

    Tularis have a decent chance though.
    That kind of nonsense. Malus is the Lord of the cavalry. Rakath is the Lord of the beasts. In addition, Rakath is a top dragon fighter.
    Yet Malus took a lot from Rakarth so seems like CA has no plan for him.

    He didn't learn anything. Malus directed Cold One Knights, Rakarth Lord of the beasts. It has a different mechanics, these are completely different characters.

    Malus brought the Beastmasters to the game, he buffs beasts, he has a rite to spawn an army full of beasts. It's very clear CA has no plans for Rakarth.

    The fact that Malus was passed ahead does not mean that there will be no Rakarth. Malus can't get the rakarth mechanic. The dark elves need it.

    I think those wood elf units would be incredibly disappointing. A chariot would be boring, we have unicorns and I don't like e the idea of a herd of them, they seem more interesting if they're more rare, and I don't like zoats in the WE roster. This is personal taste though.

    I thinking well see the dryad variants with new animations, wood elf alter kin (as shapeshifters or monstrous infantry or something else), and then something big, either a new tree spirit, or an incarnate elemental of beasts

    The fact that Malus was passed ahead does not mean that there will be no Rakarth. Malus can't get the rakarth mechanic.

    Why would CA add a unit named "Ravagers of Rakarth" with Malus if they planned Rakarth DLC?

    Give the content right now. So the mechanics will come later. Everything is logical.

    There is a unit called "Sons of Ghorros" in game, and Ghorros Warhoof is one of the likely candidate for a Beastmen DLC. And even though we have Bugman's Rangers in game, Josef Bugman coming to the game is a question of when, not if.

    Centigors were in the game since the release of the Beastmen DLC. Scourgerunner chariots were added with Malus, just one year ago. So if CA actually planned to add Rakarth later on then it would make sense to leave 'his' unit out until then, wouldn't it?

    Is not about what Malus can buff, is about the theme and the units.

    Lets say he comes as dlc lord against the WE, so now imagine he buff units from a complete different DLC!

    Yes tiktaq'to buffed one dlc unit as flc lord, but the different is still, one unit only and he can still buff the vanilla unit in this game.

    Rakath who is the lord of the beastmaster, can by design not buff the units from shadow of the blades because that would force Player to have both dlc to enjoy him rightly.

    He have 3 units and one lord, he is connected with, all of them not gonna be in the next dlc.

    I disagree with LL, I agree with L and H, and I find unit selection to be lacklustre. Zoats are great but Unicorns are FLC level addition. Ah, and FLC LL pick is absolutely loathsome

    The DLC will 100% be the Sisters. They were in the 8th Edition and are the clear fan favourite.

    Ariel might be the FLC or doesn’t get added at all.

    You can't say they are the clear fan favourite when in most polls Ariel and the Sisters popularity are pretty much the same.

    But then again you're just desperate to get the Sisters so it's not like I can expect you to be somewhat objective.
    Judging by the combinations, the SoT are the most popular: https://www.poll-maker.com/results3070188x896CdD1F-95#tab-2
    I've seen many polls where Ariel and Sisters were 50/50. No one can say who is the actual fan favourite here and CA isn't making LLs only based on the popularity anyway. They never did.
    I haven’t seen such polls. Sisters + Ariel was always the most popular scenario.

    I'm talking about polls asking about the most anticipated LL. Not the most anticipated duo of LLs.
    Yes and those most anticipated LLs were always the Sisters and Ariel.

    Drycha is not really popular and just redundant. She would be okay as a 5th LL but that’s it. She should never steal the spot of the Sisters and Ariel, this would just be insulting and would make a terrible first impression of DLC for DLC.

    CA has to blow us away and that’s only possible with the Sisters and Ariel.
    And my point was that Sisters and Ariel were quite often 50/50 so you have nothing to confirm Sisters are THE fan favourite. I'm not arguing they aren't the most anticipated ones.
    Check Reddit and YT. They are clearly the fan favourite closely followed by Ariel.
    Remember the endless debate on whether we'll get Nakai or Gor-Rok, and the forum meltdown when we ended up getting Tiktaq'to instead?

    Fan favourite doesn't mean anything.
    No, but gameplay does. We already have a tree specialist and people already hate the Amber roster restriction. Reworking amber but then getting a LL that can only use trees would garner massive backlash against CA, and rightly so.

    Also, we got both of those lords in the following DLC, so the fans were not actually wrong on the lords, just the timing. And it is VERY likely this is the final piece of paid content for the WE for the rest of TW:W, so someone will have to miss out.

    LM have 6 LLs

    WE will most likely only get 4

    Drycha and Araloth would be fine as number 5 and 6 but since WE will probably end up with 4, Sisters and Ariel should have the priority.

    Drycha making it in while either Ariel or the Sisters don’t would end up in a very negative backlash.

    Sisters + Ariel is the only acceptable scenario

    Mostly agree but I'm pretty confident that the Sisters will be headlining this DLC.

    Drycha will be the FLC lord and Ariel will come as either a legendary hero or as a mechanic similar to the Green Knight.

    While I am against a bunch of LHs if they do have some sort of mechanic for Ariel as a LH it would be pretty neat if for Drycha that is replaced with Coeddil

    I think the Sisters are likely

    I think Zoats are unlikely

    I think Hounds of Orion are likely

    Something about Wood Elves vs Skaven still doesn't sit right to me, and I think there's an equal chance (at least) of it being Dark Elves.

    Those are the only positions I'm willing to commit to.
