    So, explorminate have posted some LP, and the reception has been mixed. People are asking for a few more.

    I know Tombles is doing something (which, given that it is Tombles, Goblin Lord, should be awesome, and hopefully involving Goblins) and I can do something too.

    I had thought to do something involving Tigrans and the Unifier victory, but really, I am here to serve.

    Suggestions please, from race to class to even what outfits you would like!

    Also, any questions you want answered, I’ll try and answer.

    Since I am not really interested in any of the new races or classes, I am more interested in Racial Governance and new Specializations. So I’d be happy if you can show some un-seen (esp. Elf, Dwarf, and HUman) racial upgrades, and one of the Masteries showing one of the angels.

    Im a fan of Goblins, myself, so Ill be eager to see Tombles’s LP… but if your taking requests:

    • I would love to see Grey Guard Master

    • I very much want to see the t2 Tigran Support at some point

    • I would like to know what the Goblin Racial Governance perks are

    • Id like to see what a Necromancer Hero is like when hired, and how it differs from Necro leaders

    • And I am intensely curious how ‘Pounce’ works

    Other than that, just scroll your mouse over the abilities as often as you can, so I can pause the video and read all of the stats 🙂

    I’d like to second Epaminondas’ request, these are exactly the things which I am most curious about. Oh, plus the new dwelling of course and/or any other new creatures we haven’t seen yet.

    Many thanks in advance no matter what the focus will be though – this is very kind of you!

    Are there new Dwellings or even new creatures? I thought there was nothing new outside of the units linked to the new races and class and specializations?

    There is a new aquatic Dwelling called “Reef Guardians” which has been spoken of…. but no Dev Journal or the like has given out details on it.

    there are many race/class combos I’m interested in, but, in particular, I’d like to see a Frostling Rogue or a Tigran Sorcerer (especially this one). Specs are your choice. I also have some questions:
    1. Do goblin necromancers retain their population bonus?
    2. Is it hard to play a good Necromancer and is it a viable strategy?
    3. Is it even possible to stay neutral in this game?
    thanks in advance

    done once, not to be repeated.

    frostling male/female creation options

    Why not? 🙂

    grey guard specialization, well, a mouse over of any new specializations

    • I would love to see Grey Guard Master

    mouse over or actually used?

    • I very much want to see the t2 Tigran Support at some point

    The Mystic? Not already shown in the eXplorminate video?

    Are there new Dwellings or even new creatures? I thought there was nothing new outside of the units linked to the new races and class and specializations?

    There is a new dwelling (with a nice T4 unit) and there are polar bears, dire bears, panthers and wild mammoths iirc (probably some more). I believe the dwelling is fully discussed this week (?).

    • And I am intensely curious how ‘Pounce’ works

    It’s basically a short range teleporting free attack. Powerful if used correctly (i.e. pouncing+ flank, or just to get over walls).

    • I would like to know what the Goblin Racial Governance perks are

    mouseover only, or running commentary as to their utility?

    I’m thinking of compiling an excel type file with these and doing a mini LP that is basically a mouseover of all of them.

    • Id like to see what a Necromancer Hero is like when hired, and how it differs from Necro leaders

    Of the top of my head, I;m not sure it’s any different than a Sorceror Leader getting Sorc heroes. I may not have understood the request.

    So, a mini LP for racial governance?
    plus a mini one for cosmetic stuff, i.e. outfits?
    plus some actual playing with Grey Guards?

    Great ideas! Though I’d like to see the racial governance stuff for the old races mostly, the explorminate videos already showed some of the Tigran Military stuff and that’s bound to happen in the Frostling videos too…

    I’m also especially curious for that little underground vermin. 🙂

    frostling warlord or rogue. solo race frostling if possible. can use tavern units n stuff though.

    #174503

    Of the top of my head, I;m not sure it’s any different than a Sorceror Leader getting Sorc heroes. I may not have understood the request.

    I think it’s more the interest how much necromancy stuff can be injected into the gameplay of other classes and how much of that the hero can bring.
    For example we know of the ability to animate cadavers, or the well of souls in conjunction with necro heroes heal undead.
    SO how much undeath can the map or the necro hero bring into the game, and how useful is it? Is there a way to reanimate and keep ghouls of encountered units and are they viable? etc…

    Don’t particularly care, but since you’re one of the better players to be doing an LP, some actual tactics or strategy that you think will be viable, that wasn’t before (either with new classes/races/masteries, or just new tricks the old toys god) would be cool. Especially how you think racial levels will play into competitive.

    It would be luck based but if there is any new obtainable mounts id like to see that.
    Definitely grey guard stuff. Any cool new race class combos just a scroll over to see what they get compared to others. Finally a scroll over most of the races racial governance and if you feel like it the balance of each one in your opinion.

    Used please… I feel like this is the set that has gotten the least attention so far, and it is the one that I am the most interested in seeing.

    The Mystic? Not already shown in the eXplorminate video?

    It may have been… I watched the Necro one, but I didnt watch their tigran one. I wont drag any residual bits of argument from that thread into this one, but… I decided to pass on the other one until they have had some more time to get to know the game. If you dont want to spend time showing off content that you feel has already been on display, I can understand that.

    There is a new dwelling (with a nice T4 unit) and there are polar bears, dire bears, panthers and wild mammoths iirc (probably some more). I believe the dwelling is fully discussed this week (?).

    How… could I forget to ask for this? Yes, if you could show off the new dwelling, that would be just awesome. I would love to get my eyes on that new t4 😀

    It would be cool to see a tigran pounce over a wall, at some point… even if it was just a throw away that died right after.

    I dont need commentary, my imagination will run wild if you just mouse over the skills for a minute. Id be happy just for the goblin ones, but if you did more I certainly wouldnt pass that up 🙂

    There really wasnt much to this request… Im just curious how well a small number of ghouls can really fit in as a part of a living leaders army. Supposedly, this necro will want to make his stack undead, but I would imagine that would cause some… “logistic” problems…

    This sounds like a plan to me. Looking forward to it 🙂

    Tigran rogue with grey master.

    That would be nice and go for the unifier thingy.

    The explorminate videos allready ahow the use of pounce. Nice ability.
    Pounce in to bleed target, get predators in for the extra dmg on bleeders. Worked nicely, but there are more options ofcourse.

    Thanks for the link, I just discovered this:

    “Goblin – Tier IV – Military: Tame Trolls can be produced in Goblin cities with the Beetle Command upgrade.”

    This is awesome. I sincerely hope that the other races get something similarly cool and original. I have to admit that I am not a big fan of a few (boring) stat increases or cost reductions here and there; in fact most of the upgrades that I have seen so far I found a tad disappointing and unoriginal to be honest.

    Of course not every upgrade can be like this, but one or two per race should be possible, right?

    If Draconian T4 Economic is correct that would enable you to produce Lesser Shadow Stalkers right off the bat.

    My request:

    Specialization: Shadowborn

    I’m really interested in those tree. Hopefully i can see the race governance in action too.

    I forgot, if possible i’d also hope to see the new dwellings in action.

    I forgot about the spec in eXploriminate Let’s Try. If it’s the same, then i prefer Tigran necromancer with shadow born.

    #174630

    Supposedly, this necro will want to make his stack undead, but I would imagine that would cause some… “logistic” problems…

    Hard to plan for that for LP purposes :S. Basically, one of the Necro hero upgrades, iirc, is ghoul curse, which turns whatever he kills into a ghoul at the end of combat. It’s quite a high level upgrade (and expensive) but you can create an army of ghouls. Unfortunately, you’d have nothing to heal them with, unless you happened to find a dark well (I think bountiful melons works as well). The Necromancer’s innate healing is not that much, but yeah you could have a stack of Undead that way (just with very slow healing).

    If you have cadavers, well they decay anyway, so more than 2 of those and they’d be decaying faster than the Necro heal.

    A cadaver is the initial Necro ability, allowing them to raise any corpse as a shambling Undead thing (think zombie) which not only has no healing, but decays, which means it loses HP each turn. On the plus side, it is a free unit effectively, and I have killed a hero with it.:)

    My request:

    Race: Frostling<br>
    Class: Necromancer<br>
    Specialization: Shadowborn

    What Ravenholme said!

    Tigran berserkers get pounce, so I could do a Tigran Warlord LP. I think Tigran Assassins also get it (or improved wallclimbing). However, I am not a good Rogue player.

    Also, I doubt I’ll get the dwelling in action, as again:

    hard to plan for and also,

    should be in a dev journal soon.

    Yes, can confirm Goblins get to produce trolls. I love it.

    #174634

    Halfling Necro with Grey Guard Master (not sure about third spec)

    Fire or destruction ofcourse? 🙂

    Although the old hasty plunder + reanimate ruins approach might tank my alignment quickly. All depends on how strictly Grey Guard I want to be:).

    I would like to see a Goblin Necromancer with Destruction Mastery, for maximum amount of blight.
    If not that, maybe a Frostling Dreadnaught, since I mostly play Dreadnaught and the combo seems interesting.
    Or maybe a Necromancer with whatever race with Master Keeper and maybe creation, because I still can’t imagine what a pure good Necromancer plays like.

    edit: Just an idea, maybe you could team up with another betatester and play a multiplayer let’s play, both of you streaming from your own viewpoint.

    Not necessarily. You just start up a multiplayer game, switch on the stream and do your thing. While the other person does the same too. It’s just a matter of finding someone with beta acces and free time.
