Razing Heathlands (Drycha)

Hammer145Hammer145 Registered Users Posts: 12
So, I'm not a big Warhammer lore guy. But from what I've seen, I got the impression that Drycha is a very aggressive character. So I figured I'd play her that way. I decided I'd raze the new heatlands instead of making outposts. But I'm getting Warriors of Chaos vibes now(the main reason I refuuse to play them). Every time I destroy one, someone else settles it. Then I fight them. And so on and so on. I'm not interested in allies. Besides, I doubt I'd make any quick friends. If I were any other woof elf, I would just make outposts, but I like the roleplay aspect of Warhammer 2. But I'm in for a short campaign if I declare war on everyone who enters the heathlands. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, depending on the difficulty, they're going to deplete themselves by colonizing, so you would probably be wise to ignore the newly settled settlement and instead go onwards to raze their more developed settlements. Their net result is being weakened, ultimately.

    Also, don't be afraid to run on a deficit, but you probably already know that.

    Oh man, Drycha is the best at making friends.

    Because she starts near Mannfred, and everyone hates Mannfred. So just take a couple of heathlands off of Ostermark and the Skaven, sign a NAP with Talabecland to start working towards a defensive alliance (they'll sign it turn 1) then just go down and start kicking Mannfred's stupid face in. Your Dryads and Treemen are a super strong matchup vs. Undead so you can just chew through his stacks like he's not even there. (Grab the Murder of Spites ability on Treemen from your first Amber tech, it also gives 20% phys resist to all your beasties making your wolves and spiders trade super well against undeads)

    That will make Reikland and the Dwarfs love you. Like you're the best tree in the whole world because of all the horrible things you did to Mannfred.

    And the best bit is, it's Mannfred.

    He deserves it.

    I was having problems with Drycha, then I saw this post.


    Now I am a new man and better in life for every possible reason. Thank you.
