Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

Arcane Vortex is a Warriors of Chaos military recruitment building in Total War: Warhammer.

"The preferred route of the magic-using servants of Chaos, an arcane vortex is for the damned alone to step into."


Often taking the form of a cracked ring partially buried in the ground and covered with dark runes, an arcane vortex is surely a mystery to mortals, even those not blissfully ignorant of the Dark Powers that reside in the north. What spill forth from the vortex are nightmare things and the occasional Chaos Sorcerer, sent as an emissary of the Chaos Gods.
