I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to see with the greenskin update we will inevitably get along side Grom the paunch.
You should be able to confederate similar to how it works with Norsca.
You defeat the greenskin faction leader, that faction the joins you.
Its such a pain in the ass the way it is right now.
Even better is if they added on that and made a notoriety so more war bosses and seek you out, not like attack your settlements, but want to fight your faction leader.
That just seems more lore friendly.
Loyalty is one mechanic they should have always had, it’s already implemented with Skaven, Dark elves, and Vampire coast.
But maybe add a different spin on it.
Like add a “Fear” or “Tyrant” Nat or something, like the more battles you personally win the less likely your war bosses are likely to turn on you, but like with Malekith, if they start to get a higher level than you they are more likely to turn.
But you can spend points from the “fear” bar to establish dominance?
Remove the “spawn wahhhg” thing from Fightness and instead give your lords armies buffs and debuffs the higher and lower the bar.
Instead of spawn some random army that in all honesty doesn’t really do anything super helpful let wahhhgg have huge bonuses to replenishment, recruitment, and even a special recruitment pool where you can get camping specific units depending on how high your wahhggg meter is.
New lords and heros
There should be a savage orc big boss and war boss who obviously has bonuses to savage orc units and has more of an anti large capability as they’re renowned for beating giant creatures to death with literal sticks and stones.
And if love to see a forest goblin big boss and war boss, but I think that spot is already taken by the first goblin shaman.
Speaking of which forest goblin shaman should be able to mount the arachnarok spider.
Love to see all three variants of black Orcs, sword and shield, great weapon, and halberds, I know we already have great weapons but they should have all three
Rock trolls, basically armoured trolls with magic resistance
River trolls, faster trolls with physical resistance since they have slippery skin, and poison attacks
Wyverns, I just feel it’s a section of their unit roster they could really benefit from having.
So many other races can really bully them around in the sky and it’s sometimes annoying to have to commit your lord to trying to take the aerial fights.
Those are just a few ideas I have for this, what are your thoughts?
And please let’s keep this discussion limited to the greenskins as they will be the next old world update we see.
Im well aware that beastmen, woodelves, and warriors of chaos need updates, trust me!
