    Total War: WARHAMMER II

    November 19 2020

    The Twisted & The Twilight is the latest Legendary Lords Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER II, and introduces two rival Legendary Lords from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, each with their own factions, objectives, mechanics, units and playstyle, for use in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns as well as custom and multiplayer battles.
    Throt the Unclean, Master Mutator of Clan Moulder, has grown ravenously hungry following a lifetime of mutating experiments, believing that consuming the magic of Ariel, Queen of the Wood Elves, can save him from his eternal starvation. He is opposed by the Sisters of Twilight, Elven twins who were once a single being before being split into two bodies by the Weave. Together they must complete their mission to prepare the glade for Ariel’s ritual, which will heal the rift in the world.
    The Twisted & The Twilight includes:

    • Two unique Legendary Lords leading their own factions:
      • Throt the Unclean, Master Mutator of Clan Moulder and one of the nine Lords of Hell Pit
      • The Sisters of Twilight Naestra and Arahan, Emissaries of Queen Ariel

    • Powerful new units and Heroes for both the Skaven and the Wood Elves, including:
      • Brood Horrors, Mutant Rat Ogres, Packmasters, Wolf Rats, and the terrifying Ghoritch for the Skaven
      • Zoats, Great Stag Knights, Bladesingers, Spellweavers, and Queen Ariel of Athel Loren herself for the Wood Elves

    • An Old World Update for the Wood Elves

    Is there a pre-purchase discount?

    Do I need to start a new campaign?

    If you want to make the most of the recent plethora of changes then yes, we’d advise that you do start a new campaign.
    Can I keep my mods?

    We advise that you remove all mods until their respective creators have updated them in alignment with the update.
    Steam is not installing the DLC or the free-LC – what’s happening?

    Be patient. If there’s an issue with the DLC, we will communicate this via our official social channels. If you don’t see anything there, you should clear your cache and restart Steam.
    Will the new Legendary Lords be available in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaign?

    Yes, The Twisted & The Twilight will be available to play in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires Campaign, and can also be used in campaign, custom, and battle modes.
    What new units will be available in The Twisted & The Twilight?

    The Twisted & The Twilight introduces the following new units for the Skaven: Ghoritch (Legendary Hero), Brood Horrors, Mutant Rat Ogres, Packmasters, and Wolf Rats.
    It also includes the following new units for the Wood Elves: Ariel (Legendary Hero), Zoats, Great Stag Knights, Bladesingers, and Spellweavers.
    What new mechanics will Throt the Unclean bring to The Twisted & The Twilight?

    The new campaign mechanic for Throt the Unclean is The Flesh Laboratory.
    When playing as Throt the Unclean, you gain access to his personal Flesh Laboratory. Here you can grow new monsters or augment existing ones to create new horrific abominations.

    • Shape and customise your units with augments that can be stacked to create different combinations of effects
    • Augmenting a unit too much can make them unstable and lead them to slowly mutate, gaining negative traits
    • Units can be “recycled” for raw materials, so even defective units still have a purpose
    • Recycled units can also be replaced by monsters grown in the Growth Vat
    • The more Growth Juice in the Growth Vat, the better the quality of monster that comes out

    What new mechanics will the Sisters of Twilight bring to The Twisted & The Twilight?

    The new campaign mechanic for the Sisters of Twilight is The Forge of Daith.
    During a Sisters of Twilight campaign, the Sisters will gain a series of incidents and dilemmas that will grant them access to unique items crafted by Daith, the master smith of Vaul’s Anvil.
    These dilemmas will enable the creation of new items or the upgrade of existing items made by Daith.
    What’s the free content that will be released alongside the DLC?

    The Twisted & The Twilight will be accompanied by the release of the Skaven Chieftain Hero and the malevolent Legendary Lord Drycha – more information will be released soon.
    What’s in the free Old World update that will be released alongside the DLC?

    The Twisted & The Twilight will be released alongside an update of the Wood Elves faction. This includes:

    • Amber is no longer required for units or buildings, and all technologies that previously cost Amber have had the cost removed and been reworked
    • Eight new technologies have been added – these are the only things that will now cost Amber
    • Amber is no longer gained from controlling territory, and is instead awarded for healing Forests


    • In Mortal Empires, the Wood Elves still need to heal Athel Loren and restore the Oak of Ages. However, to do so they now need to travel the world and heal special Forest regions spread around the map. Each healed Forest will provide unique bonuses
    • A Forest’s health can be built up over time through various actions, such by securing its borders and building certain buildings. Once sufficiently restored, a Ritual can be performed to permanently heal the Forest
    • Every Forest also has unique Forest Encounters – interactable markers that provide narrative choices and let the player shape how they heal the Forest
    • As part of this system, new regions have been added to the campaign – four to Mortal Empires, and two to Vortex – giving the Wood Elves a presence on every part of the map


    • Wood Elves can now instantly transport their armies between Forest regions using the new Travel Deeproots ability (this ability comes with a cooldown)

    When will the free content be available?
    On the release day of The Twisted & The Twilight – the 3rd of December 2020.

    About This Content

    This Lords Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER II introduces two new Legendary lords for the Skaven and the Wood Elves. Each leads their own faction and features new characters, units, unique gameplay mechanics and narrative objectives.

    The wild energies of the Great Vortex have torn a rift in the Dreaming Woods. Could this form the site of a Daemonic invasion? Sensing great peril, Queen Ariel of Athel Loren dispatches her trusted emissaries, the Sisters of Twilight, to prepare the way for a ritual of closure.

    Catching wind of Ariel’s plan, Throt the Unclean scents opportunity. If he can defeat the Sisters and capture the Elven queen while she is vulnerable, perhaps he can harness her essence and cure the eternal pangs of starvation caused by his Warpstone-infused metabolism…Legendary lords

    Wood Elves: The Sisters of Twilight

    Once a single being, divided into siblings by The Weave, Naestra and Arahan are two sides of the same coin. They work together in the service of queen Ariel, marshalling the woodland warriors at her command, and cannot be slain unless both fall in battle. The Twilight Sisters must prepare the glade for Ariel’s arrival and protect her as she performs the ritual.

    Forge of Daith:

    Daith, the master smith of Vaul’s Anvil, will forge and upgrade unique items for the Sister of Twilight. These items are crafted through incidents and dilemmas which appear through the course of a Sisters of Twilight campaign.


    • Ariel: The Queen of Athel Loren is recruitable as a Legendary Hero. She is a powerful spellcaster who is more than capable in melee combat too
    • Spellweaver: Spellcaster Lord who can be recruited to wield the Lores of Life/Beasts/Shadow/Dark/High magic
    • Zoats: Powerful Monstrous Beasts who have access to bound Lore of Life spells
    • Great Stag Knights: heavy Wood Elf cavalry used to penetrate infantry lines and decimate lighter cavalry
    • Bladesingers: Elite, sword-wielding Wardancers

    Regiments of Renown:

    • Wraiths of the Frozen Heart: Particularly effective for preventing cavalry from cycle charging, or stopping a missile unit from retreating.
    • Lost Sylvan Knights: Equipped with significant physical resistance.
    • Enigmas of Ghyran: Elite Zoats with more powerful spells from the Lore of Life.

    Skaven: Throt the Unclean

    An eternal hunger gnaws at Throt, the Master Mutator of Clan Moulder. A lifetime of auto-experimentation has made him powerful, but his vastly enhanced metabolism means he must feed constantly to maintain himself. He is hell-bent on reducing the Wood Elf queen to a magical pulp, which he will consume to satiate himself at long last.

    The Flesh Laboratory:

    Moulding muscle and bone like living clay, Throt can use his Flesh Laboratory to fashion hideous new abominations for the battlefield. Numerous augmentations can be stacked to make existing units perform in horrifying new ways, but flesh can only bear so much torment before the subject becomes unstable. Even such aberrations have a use though, as they can be rendered down for valuable materials. More Growth Juice for the vats, Yes-yes!


    • Ghoritch: A former general of Archaon the Everchosen, once ignored his commander’s orders and was sent to Hell Pit as punishment. There Throt transplanted his brain into the body of a Rat Ogre, creating an aberration of incredible speed, strength and intelligence. Ghoritch is recruitable as a Legendary Hero.
    • Packmaster: This Hero unit performs a support role with AoE and targeted buffs, summons Wolf Rats to the thick of battle, and may be mounted on a Brood Horror
    • Wolf Rats: Highly mobile pack-beasts which come in poisonous and armour-piercing varieties
    • Mutant Rat Ogre: a large single-entity monster adept at brawling.
    • Brood Horror: A huge, fast-moving monster adept at punching through infantry lines. Can also be chosen as a mount for Throt the Unclean and Packmaster Heroes.

    Regiments of Renown:

    • Pit Fighters of Hell's Deep: Comes with the Beserk ability and can be used to effectively combat terror units.
    • Morskittar's Hellion: Capable of summoning a localized bombardment of warp lightning.
    • The Thing Thing: Has the ability to buff melee attack and weapon strength but rampages self in process.
