Seek joy in bloodlust in the new balance update


“This promises to be a momentous day.”

– Fulgrim, Primarch

As the Battle of Terra reaches its highest point yet, the warriors of the Emperor’s Children are filled with unparalleled bloodlust, rampaging across the hosts of Terra in a majestic whirlwind of violence. Seeing a new opening, the lines of the Sons of Horus become a bigger threat as they plan a new spearhead assault.

This update brings changes to the Emperor’s Children, with new Perfection effects and improving Fulgrim’s odds to play his Whispers of Chaos. The Sons of Horus receive some tweaks and the Ultramarines see some adjustments after last month’s changes. Check out all the changes:
