New balance update! Excess takes its toll


“Knowledge bows before nothing.”

– Sota-Nul

After a month of conquering the ladder, some of the new deck archetypes introduced in the Shadow of the Warmaster expansion have proven to be too dominant. Not only that, some old horrors have risen again to take the competitive scene by storm.

This balance update aims to slow down the strategies that have proven most dominant during the latter seasons, giving slower decks a higher chance to compete. Take a look at the complete list of changes below:


Blade of the Laer: Change description to ‘Your Warlord gains +1/0 and “When a troop dies, gain +1/0 this turn and heal 1″‘
Innate Brilliance: Change description to ‘Reduce the cost of all troops in your hand by 1 this turn’
Galewind Strike: Lower initial damage to 1-2 instead of 2


Raum: Change description to ‘Unstoppable. Battle Honour: Heal 1’ (instead of healing 2)
Ashen Circle: Lower Attack from 5 to 4
Book of Lorgar: Increase Cost from 3 to 4


● Black Blade: Change description to ‘Your Warlord gains “Savage: Your units gain +1/0″‘


Powerfist: Lower Attack from 3 to 2


Powerfist: Lower Attack from 3 to 2


Khorne’s Favour: Change description to ‘Your Warlord gains +2/0 this turn and attacks by itself once’


Sota-Nul: Change description to ‘Resolution: Give a Mark of Chaos to a friendly Mechanicum troop’

These changes are already in the game, and a new competitive season is live! Conquer the battlefields to claim your rightful place as this month’s Warmaster!
