Confederation of Other Warriors of Chaos- Among the best additions in Total War: Warhammer III- Update 2.1.0

Legendary Lords Total War: Warhammer III- Update 2.1.0

Increase in Hit Points For Hammerers

Hammerers now have additional movement options along with new buffs. Their hit points have increased by 800!

Helman Ghorst Tweaks- Fan Favorite Update 

Helman Ghorst was way too powerful because of his corpse carts! The game developers tweaked his powers and made him a more balanced character. Furthermore, his Corpse Cart is more expensive now. It costs 800 gold in multiplayer battles!

Increased Match Durations in Dominion Battles

The new update tweaked the rules in dominion battles so that they last longer!

Vortex Spells Rebalancing in Total War: Warhammer III- Update 2.1.0

Talons of the Night, Infernal Gateway, and other stationary vortex spells had too little counter-play. Hence, their wind-up durations are increased in update 2.1 for rebalancing the spells and giving players more time for responding to attacks.

Reduced Penalties in Total War: Warhammer III- Update 2.1.0

Imperial Authority penalties received reductions in the new update. Although, this only applies to first losses! When you incur the second or third loss, the penalty is the same.

Regiments of Renown Units

These are high-end versions of standard units with better abilities and combat performance. They have become available for appropriate factions. Moreover, some of these units costed way too much! These costs are updated and adjusted in update 2.1.
