Total War: Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires Update 2.1

The Total War: Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires Update 2.1 brings a few new mechanics and balance fixes, like a Helman Ghorst nerf.

Fans worried that Creative Assembly would take too long with balance fixes and updates to the massive Immortal Empires update don’t need to worry any longer. With the 2.1 Immortal Empires patch comes a huge list of changes and a signal that Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires will get the support it deserves. Because this list is so massive, we’ve tried breaking it down for you below. Here’s everything included in the Total War: Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires Update 2.1.

Total War: Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires Update 2.1

The biggest changes in the new Total War: Total War: Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires Update 2.1 has to be the balance fixing for Dwarves and Helman Ghorst.

Dwarves are buffed with increased spell resistance to compensate for their lack of mobility. If you are a fan of the Hammerers unit, you should also be happy as they are receiving additional HP and now utilize magical attacks. 

The Helman Ghorst “bug” with corpse carts is nerfed, making his grand campaign more challenging. In addition, the cost of Corpse Cart in multiplayer battles is increased from 250 to 800 gold, making this far less accessible for most army compositions. 

The Empire faction is also getting a buff, making their early game on the campaign map much more viable and less frustrating. 

In addition, new victory conditions and an endgame challenge, Ultimate Crisis–in which every endgame scenario triggers simultaneously, will make your grand multiplayer campaigns more challenging and fun. 

Some other highlights include the Warriors of Chaos being able to subjugate all human and elven races when destroying a faction’s final settlement. This will provide you with a new vassal and a new Legendary Lord. In addition, all Legendary Lords can attack a settlement or city, even without seiging equipment on the first turn.
