Total War Warhammer 3 Patch 1.3 Notes – June 30, 2022

REGIMENTS OF RENOWN II

Seven new Regiments of Renown units are joining the roster in our second official unit pack. Like the first, units will be joining each of the game’s core races to provide new, elite variants for any army you field.

CHARACTER TRAIT & SKILL TREE REWORKS

A popular topic since the launch of WARHAMMER III: the traits received upon defeating Legendary Lords will be seeing some adjustments to feel more rewarding when you stomp a big baddie. Several skill trees will also be seeing updates.

REALM OF CHAOS

As we continue to tweak the Realm of Chaos campaign, several new changes are being implemented to address some of the more frustrating aspects identified by players:

  • When an AI teleports to the Forge of Souls, players will now be prompted to teleport and confront them (if they are in a position to do so). This should counteract the need to proactively camp the Forge of Souls until the AI appears.
  • The final encounter with Be’lakor has been adjusted to be less time-consuming and punishing.

Several tweaks are also coming to Tzeentch’s realm, specifically:

  • Sigils will now be revealed when the player enters/exits a teleport locus.
  • Action points used to move and position your armies will no longer be lost by interacting with a point of interest.
  • The AI now must teleport eight times before accessing the final area.

AI USE OF ‘CHANGING OF THE WAYS’

The AI’s use of Changing of the Ways (Tzeentch) has been a notable pain point since the launch of the game. As such, two key changes are being made:

  • Minor Tzeentch factions will no longer be able to use Changing of the Ways.
  • The cooldown is being increased to prevent it from being abused by AI factions.

CATHAYAN FORMATION ATTACK

As promised earlier in the year, adjustments have been made to improve Cathay’s Formation Attack ability: both by adding additional melee defence and by updating the entity behaviour so that soldiers will more actively seek out engagements.

KURGAN SPAWN RATES

Several changes are being made to prevent Kurgan Warband armies from spawning continuously—offering vigilant Cathayan players a chance to enjoy some well-earned moments of peace.

MIAO YING NOW HAS “EYE OF THE STORM”

A much-requested fix, Miao Ying will now be able to access her Eye of the Storm ability when in dragon form, as intended!

UNIT RESPONSIVENESS

Several changes have been made to improve unit responsiveness in the game: from how units navigate settlement entrances and react to retreat orders, as well as how large units and heroes interact via synced animations.

AI FOCUS ON THE BACK LINE

Addressed an issue where AI armies would focus (almost exclusively) on backline units is being addressed to encourage more meaningful tactics on the battlefield. This should also address an issue during Siege Battles which would compel the AI to scale walls and march through defending units to enter the city.

AI USING ABILITIES WHEN THEY SHOULD NOT

There are a handful of instances where the AI would utilize abilities where the player could not; that is not intended, so we’re ensuring that abilities are limited in the same way as they are for the player.

PLAGUE ATTRITION

Plagues have been noted as exceptionally difficult to deal with, so we’re making some adjustments to the duration and strength of attrition effects.

LAND & DOMINATION BATTLES ARE NOW IN RANKED

Matchmaking will now allow for both Land and Domination battles in ranked: more variety to test your skills!
