Settra does not serve! Settra rules!

Settra the Imperishable is a Tomb Kings Legendary Lord introduced in Total War: Warhammer II with the Rise of the Tomb Kings DLC. The original uniter of Nehekhara, he is a ruthless leader whose thirst for conquest knows no bounds. Settra ruled over the most magnificent realm ever known; now he will see it restored. While he is a spellcaster, he is also very good in melee.

In the campaign, he leads the Khemri faction.

Description[edit | edit source]

Settra, known by many godly titles, is the mighty and absolute sovereign ruler of all Nehekhara, an ancient and powerful warrior-king who ruled a large and powerful Empire some two-thousand five hundred years before the birth of the Barbarian Hero Sigmar Heldenhammer and the founding of the Empire. Settra is as ruthless and tyrannical a ruler as can ever be, whose thirst for conquest and power is only matched by that of Nagash himself. His power is far greater than any other Tomb King, and his unyielding will is such that he never needs to return to his sarcophagus to rest. The immortality he lusted after in life is now his, and the civilisations that flourished in his absence will soon known the full wrath of he who founded the first.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • Anti-Large: Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
  • Armour-Piercing: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
  • Armoured: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
  • Spellcaster: This unit can cast spells.

  • Settra is a great leader, bringing bonuses to growth and public order, while reducing construction time. He also confers bonus armour to Skeleton Chariot and Tomb Guard units, and has a selection of unlockable mounts, including the Khemrian Warsphinx and the flame-wreathed Chariot of the Gods.
  • On the Warsphinx he is the exact same as a generic Tomb King aside from slight stat tweaks, except he has the ability to cast spells as well and his unique abilities listed above.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you defeat Settra as Norsca with Surtha Ek as Lord, you get a special trait. It reads "Weapon strength: +100% for Chaos Chariots units (Lord's army)" and has the description "That's not a chariot... *This* is a chariot!". This is a reference to a popular joke within the community that Surtha Ek is a master of chariots, due to his armies consisting sometimes solely of chariots and the fact that the AI knows how to use them very well.
  • Likewise, Settra can receive the special trait "Surtha Wrecked" for defeating Surtha Ek, which increases his capacity for Skeleton Chariots by 10 and the armor of all chariots in his army by 10.
