    Vive le Roi!


    DLC Overview

    I think it's safe for me to say that it's a really solid DLC content-wise. But it isn't without problems.

    The Beastmen:

    1. Taurox - Great model and animations. The sounds he makes are pure metal.
    2. Doombull - Good model, but, shouldn't he use an axe? Anyway, it's not a bad change. It adds variety of positive kind to the Minotaur-themed armies.
    3. Wargor - Good model.
    4. Tuskgor Chariot - Good model.
    5. Ghorgon - Fantastic model and animations, although there appears to be something off about its animation cycles.
    6. Jabberslythe - Amazing model and animations.

    Taurox's mechanics - His mechanics aren't bad, I find them thematic and power-driven. It's a good stuff, but it isn't a great stuff. Throt's lab it's not. What disappoints me the most, though, is the lack of Minotaurs of Khorne in the reward's pool.

    I expect Moonclaw DLC in Game3.

    The Lizardmen:

    1. Oxyotl - Great model and animations. I find his voice somewhat cute.
    2. Skink Oracle - Good model, but its animations are lacking. The character almost doesn't move at all.
    3. Chameleon Stalkers - Good model. Personally, I think it's a pity that no head variants from the concept art made it into the game.
    4. Troglodon - It's a good model overall, and I adore the few new animations it got, especially the tongue flick. But its colour should be paler. And there should be quill-like whiskers on its head, not horns. The Troglodon uses them to track motion(LM 8ED AB p. 37). I don't expect changes, but CA, please, do double-check the source material in the future.
    5. Coatl - To be honest, I don't consider it to be the Coatl at all. It doesn't match any of WH lore and art depictions. Said depictions present the creature with either snake head or dragon head. Your version is bird-like. To be clear, I do like bird dragons, but the Coatl isn't supposed to be one of them. Not to mention the fact that Warhammer dragons don't have bird beaks. What they have are pointy snouts.
    CA, if you don't plan to change its head, then at least add the Lizardmen-themed ornamentations all over its body, vide LM 7ED AB p. 5 artwork and David Gallagher's concept art. As it is, it lacks visual elements tying it to the race. Also, it would greatly benefit from feathers on its back, because currently the wings stand out and look detached, like glued to the body. Its animations too require additional work. It's a shame because it was my most wanted LM unit after the Dread Saurian.

    Oxyotl's mechanics - Just like with Taurox, I think the Silent Sanctums could have been much more than they are. For example: today's patch will introduce a new technology to give Skinks poison attacks. Similar to Thorek, Oxyotl could have had his own more advanced version of this core mechanic. Maybe poisons brewing UI in addition to the current Silent Sanctum functions.

    After 3 DLCs, the Lizardmen still don't have even one LL with 'wow!' tier mechanic. Hopefully, Tetto'eko will rectify this situation in Game3.

    FLC Overview

    It's really good, but, yes, yes, there will be a few 'buts'.

    The Beastmen:

    1. Race rework - It's delicious. It really is. I haven't played them in years, and now I'm actually excited to launch a multiple campaigns.
    2. Great Bray Shaman - it's a good model. I expect the same quality from TW:Access in the future. It's also the level of attention the Glade Captain too should have gotten instead of being a kitbash.
    3. Malagor - Malagor can fly!!!

    What bothers me the most is that the Beastmen will continue to use the Warriors of Chaos' chaos corruption visuals. Those don't fit them at all. Instead of spreading lava, the Cloven Ones should spread corrupted flora.

    The Dwarfs:

    1. Thorek - I would have preferred him as DLC LL with rune-themed units.
    2. Race rework - It's a mighty fine stuff.

    CA, do consider putting runic collar on the Carnosaur's model. Or at least add glowing runes on its neck's textures.

    The Lizardmen:

    The changes coming in this patch are a good first and very small steps, while it should be a whole tango. The Lizardmen should have gotten a rework. The Geomantic Web and Blessed Spawnings remain untouched. No new magic lores for the Slann Nakai's campaign is still in a miserable condition. Tehenhauin too could have used some help, like for example, new RoRs and better ultimate reward for his pyramid.

    The Ogres:

    Interesting. The livelier the world the better. I assume it's an aperitif to soften our palates before the pre-order announcement.

    Do I get Patch+DLC+FLC via Download or do I need to activate something via Total war access?

    Very excited about this!

    I went to TW access and I could get the ogres, but for the bray shaman it fails and every time I try to get it to activate I get a message saying "already purchased". It doesn't show up in the game.

    Are others experiencing this?

    You're not alone! We're having some trouble with the Bray Shaman on Steam right now, but we're working on a fix and hope to have it fixed shortly.

    Thanks for the info but I fear I am too dumb.
    I log into total war acce but I can't find anywhere how to redeem the new content.

    I could have sworn you log in and get the content via clicking on it, maybe I use the wrong link?
    Didn't you in the past post the needed link here?^^

    Edit:
    NVM! As expected I was too dumb, found it! :D

    LM campaign mechanic changes are extremely disappointing and pitiful.

    LM still have the worst and most boring mechanics out of all TWW2 factions.

    Nakai and Teneh and Tiktak are still so basic and shallow.

    Nakai in particular is shamefully low effort, he is so slow to move across the campaign map.

    Still no changes to so many of LM units that are under used...

    Geomantic web, no additional lores of magic for Slann and Skinks etc.

    I cannot get Bray Shaman and Thorek. For some reason, Thorek is not in the access and it says that I already purchased Bray Shaman. How to fix this?

    Thorek you get via steam in the "normal" way for FLC - press the download button.

    For the Shaman try logging out of access and closing your browser down (I closed all tabs) then went back in and it worked.

    Hi there! you can grab Thorek here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1576390/Total_War_WARHAMMER_II__Thorek_Ironbrow/

    And we're still experiencing issues with the Bray Shaman. Some people have had success by trying again, but that's no guarantee. We're working on a fix now.

    Its not really out. The steam download does not work. I would recommend holding off until tomorrow to click install/update.

    Now I don't even have access to TWWH2 because its stuck in infinite download. Might as well enjoy your prior campaigns while they "fix" the DLC and there is actually a stable release.

    Is the display showing disc usage (the red line) if so you just have to wait for the install to finish. You have finished the Network download (thats why steam shows 100% - blue line) but you still have to wait for the patching to finish.

    Sometimes the Network bit stops around 98% then it hammers the install, that takes the time, then the last 2% comes at the end over the network, it then quickly completes - that can be a bit confusing if you are not watching the progress display.

    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!
