Balance changes – August 2021


“Losses are acceptable. Failure is not.”

– Lord Commander Fayle

The Battle of Terra quickly became the most brutal battle of the Horus Heresy. The Solar Auxilia was ready to defend Terra against the traitors, but the all-out assault into the Imperial capital took a toll on everyone involved. In the midst of this war, human spirit is not the only thing that can fall. Iron breaks, and machine falters as the struggle continues. Meanwhile, the Dark Angels get ready to join the battle against treachery in the latest balance patch! Check out all the changes:

Imperial Army

  • Katsuhiro: Change stats from 2/3 to 2/2, and ability now gives +1/0 instead of +1/+1
