New balance patch! The Death Guard’s inexorable march continues!


Fear is an illusion.


Balance changes arrive! As the Death Guard march across the blighted surface of Terra, Nurgle blessed them with further gifts to enhance their already disgusting resilience on the battlefield. The corrupted Death Guard receive several well deserved balance changes to bring them closer to other factions in Ranked and Unranked.

Four other factions receive changes, to keep in check some of the most dominant decks in the meta as of late. The Loyalist and Traitor Legios receive several changes to make it harder for them to load and shoot their Titan Weapons in a single turn, as well as some troop and weapon nerfs.

The Raven Guard also see some changes aimed at curbing Corvus Corax’s dominance of the leaderboards, and making it harder to complete their mission card.

Lastly, the Sons of Horus see just one card tweaked, Frontal Assault. It is a key part of a powerful combo, which now remains feasible but slightly less prevalent.
