Strategy[]

Vortex:

  • The Order of Loremasters starts in a war with the Sentinels of Xeti.
  • Your first goal is to secure your island province and then defeat the Sentinels of Xeti. Next you need to claim the territory of the Blood Hall Coven. Once you have at least 2 armies you can battle the Skaven to the north.
  • The Court of Lybaras and the Spine of Sotek Dwarfs should help secure your borders to the south and to the east.
  • As a High Elven faction your battle tactics should start with using defensive formations, forcing your enemies to come to you while under fire from your ranged units. Mortal Empires:
    • The Order of Loremasters begins at war with Clan Fester and should aim to clear them and the Blessed Dread from the Huntsmaster's Jungle.
    • Taking the Vampire Coast will end the corruption afflicting your nearby holdings and easy relations with the Lizardsmen allow the Order time to stabilize these dependable provinces while confederating into Ulthuan.
    • Not requiring the Mage Tower to build mages (thanks to the Crown of Saphery) means Teclis can build Shrines to dampen the corruption and eventually hire Phoenix units into his ranks.

Trivia[]

  • The symbol in the Order of Loremasters' flag incorporates the High Elven rune of Sendai, which represents dedication, sacrifice, and resentment.
