Warhammer Realm Of the Wood Elves Review

Warhammer Realm Of the Wood Elves Review

SEGA the mother of DLC has pushed out a new expansion to Total War Warhammer called Realm Of the Wood Elves, this is second big one after the Beastmen DLC – generally it seems people have liked this expansion lot more and i believe its due to the fact i guess lot of people do not like the horde system (I’m one of those people) plus elves always been super popular faction in many games such as world of warcraft.

The Wood Elves campaign offers a uniquely different campaign experience to the other playable races of Total War: WARHAMMER. Their major infrastructure is housed in the Wood Elf settlements of Athel Loren, though they are capable of expanding outwards, capturing settlements and building limited outposts, known as Asrai Lookouts, in their stead. The heart of the campaign is The Great Oak, a unique 5-tier building related to the new Wonder victory condition.

In battle, the Wood Elves are swift and deadly, fielding many ‘glass cannon’ style units. While less physically robust than most other races, and with smaller unit sizes, they make up for this with excellent melee and ranged capabilities. They field some of the best archers in the game, many of whom can move and fire, and may later be upgraded with a range of specialised ammunition. They are often accompanied in battle by the woodland kin of Athel Loren, such as Dryads, Eagles and Treemen. Their spellcasters wield the Lores of Life, Beasts and Shadows.

New Story Campaign: The Season of Revelation
Set across a beautiful and highly-detailed campaign map of Athel Loren and the surrounding Duchies of Breton, The Season of Revelation is playable as either Durthu or Orion, the Wood Elves’ two Legendary Lords. This campaign tasks the player with uniting Athel Loren in the face of Bretonnian incursions and, later, from a series of fearsome, climactic attacks by the Beastman warlord Morghur, and his corrupted bray-herds.


  • Wood Elves are fun to play, because they have the ability to conquer each settlement on the map
  • The DLC Campaign is kinda cool the whole Wonder Victory Condition setting is actually very neat
  • Offers countless of hours, so its rather good return for the money


  • As of now Wood Elves seem to be rather broken if played against as AI in Grand Campaign
  • Needs more Legendary Lords, female one would be nice
