Hey Com and CA, Right now - we have three kinds of modifiers for units which fight in forests. Forest Strider - Increase to MA and MD when in Forests. Currently only on High Elf Rangers. Forest Stalker - Increase to ranged accuracy and MD. Currently on all WE elf units and beasts (dragons, eagle) Forest Spirit - Increase to accuracy and MD. Currently on Tree Units (Dryads, Tree Kin and Treeman)
I would suggest that Forest Strider would be a trait for all WE elf melee units. It makes no sense to buff them with accuracy, as they don't have a ranged attack. Forest Stalker can remain on all WE elf ranged units. That includes glade riders, hawk riders and sisters of thorn. Forest Spirit - bonuses should change to increase to MA and MD instead of accuracy. Once again, tree units do not benefit from accuracy buff. Also, if it makes more sense lore-wise, forest dragons and great eagles could be considered as forest spirits as rather, rather than forest stalkers. (meaning - change the their trait name)
I'm not a beastmen player, but I'd love to hear your feedback whether beastmen units should receive forest bonuses as well.
