Playing an elf in this game is almost passable, because you're still gonna be killing elves. But why would you do that when you could play as dinosaurs or wacky rat people and murder twice as many elves?

Really hope Tyrion doesn't have the same issue that many factions had in warhammer one where you spend 2/3 of the game punching one race. Same with Morathi and Malekith for that matter since they are also surrounded by factions of their own race.

Oh, no worries there, Malekith also gets to fight Beastmen and Norscans all the time.

According to that old campaign map preview, there are at least 2 dark elf factions starting on the circular island-- one near to Tyrion (his version of the Empire Secessionists, I guess), and one up north.

From the look of things there's nothing stopping you from completing your starting province and then sailing of to grab distant provinces.

For the Morathi start this seems optimal.
You need to get your starting province[1] and the Ritual resource site east of that[2].
The next closest Ritual resource sites are in Ulthuan[3] and northern Lustria[4], not very far from your starting position.
Or you can head west and fight Beastmen and Skaven. But there does not seem to be a Ritual resource site that way.

Fighting other Druchii serves little purpose beyond killing more elves.

[1] Iron Peaks
[2] South western province of The Black Coast
[3] Southern tip of Ulthuan
[4] Forests of the Viper

edit: The Bleak coast is a sea province...

It seems really strong honestly, if they manage to touch a caster or other squishy unit then they are just gone. Or you can use it to lock down the enemy lord while you bring in anti-large or whatever to kill them (assuming it works on lords).

Turns out clanrats can be an effective counter to enemy lords if they dogpile them.

So here is a question for FFA games, since you get points based on damage dealt, what happens with healing magic, does the opponent lose points or do your troops become a point farm for the other guy?

Also curious if 1000 damage dealt to zombies will be worth less then 1000 dealt to a lord or unit with high defensive stats.

And it also seems like if you wanted to cheese a FFA, you'd take a all cavalry or mobile army and just wait for the other guys to engage and act as your anvil for you.

Yeah, turns out the clanrat summon can bug out and put all of the rats in a way too small area so you end up having 90 rats hitting a lord/monster at the same time which is enough to melt any unit.

They probably made their collision model really small for the animation when they are summoned, which had the unintended result of making them great single target killers.

Probably unites them against you before getting to punking each other.

So with the Lizardmen, can you only recruit generic Slann lords via the minor rituals? Are they typed by school of magic or do they act like MazdaMonday in that they have a mix of spells from several lores?

Totally going to start as Krok Gar and reenact that developer stream where 800 lizards fought 5000 rats on turn 3.
