Challenge the Dragon – Battle the dragon. Hi guys The purpose of this thread is to discuss strategies and share tips about the Imrik campaign. The archers aren't the best in melee but they'll tarpit the enemy while you cycle charge them in the rear with Imrik, your dragon and the dragon princes. Given his buffs to dragon units and Dragon Princes, as well as the Fire Mage Mikaela, you’ll soon become unstoppable, aggressively annihilating anyone who gets in your way. Total War: Warhammer II – The Warden & The Paunch is available on Steam. I've succeeded in doing both option 1 and 2. 2: Capture Sun-Tree settlement (and the entirety of the province) to get the "Confederation with Caledor" decision. They can get up to 3-4 armies with just a handful of settlements while you can only afford 1 full stack due to the way the HE economy is set up and how Imrik's start location prevents you from participating in that economy. The general idea is to have Imrik and your Dragon Princes charge opposing forces head-on, provided that you’re not running straight towards spearmen. After capturing Bhagar, strike north immediately to eliminate Eshin. The dragon should go down eventually giving you enough time to turn again and prepare before the last group out of the reinforcements reaches you, the hydra and the medusas.

It’s time to learn about Prince Imrik’s Dragon Encounters in Total War: Warhammer II starting with Shackolot the Calamity. You’ll encounter the dragon again later in your campaign. I made sure to kite the army past my archers a couple of times using up the last of my ammo, magic and dragon breath(activate Greater Invocation of Vaul before the battle if you can for extra charges) to soften them up before locking them into combat. This will complete the settlements tally (6/6) and the decision to confederate with Caledor will pop up. So i am extremely new to the game and just for shits and giggles, i did the imrik campaign because he seemed like a fun time to play, but my first Dragon battle is Lamoreaux. Maintain 10 public order in the Shifting Sands province – +1,000 gold; +2 influence.

On your next encounter though, after 15 turns, try to defeat that army to gain the dragon as a unit as well as unique item rewards. As for the remainder of the Vortex campaign, be reminded to defend your fonts of power from intervention armies. There are three (actually, four) ways to go about this: 1: Capture Sun-Tree settlement only (for the waystone) -> buddy up with Lizardmen and let them handle Leaf-Cutterz -> head north to eliminate Eshin quickly. Every time I destroy a 20 stack, they have two more on the other side of the province I'm currently on, either raiding, taking a settlement, or both. Winning the battle lets you obtain the above rewards as well as the dragon’s service as a unit, which means you won’t encounter it later in your campaign. If you’re quick (and lucky), Imrik’s army can capture two additional settlements in the Northern Red River province (Cuexotl and Nahuontl) held by the Leaf-Cutterz before the Lizardmen factions do.

Control the entirety of one province – +2,000 gold, +5 influence; +7 way-fragments. You’ll encounter the dragon again later in your campaign. Assuming you weren't using diplo on Lizardmen, then you'll likely end up warring with them eventually. They’re likely at war with the Bowmen of Oreon, the Last Defenders, or Tlaqua (heck, they’re probably at war with all three). Here are the rewards: Confederating with Caledor is very important since it gives you a foothold on Ulthuan. Press J to jump to the feed. Sure, you quickly eliminate Eshin, but your more prosperous settlements to the south will likely get PO drops. Avoid defensive or military alliances so you don’t get embroiled in their conflicts. Construct a Tower building (province capital) – +500 gold; +1 influence. Eshin is a major threat, but the Skaven will be hopelessly outmatched once you've got a couple of dragons (Sun Dragon + unique dragon) and, even later, once Imrik's on Minaithnir. Of course, you’ll control Vaul’s Anvil which lets you collect way-fragment resources for your Vortex ritual as long as you have an Ancient Waystone building.

Bargain with the Dragon – +70 influence; costs 2,000 gold. These powerful units will, undoubtedly, completely change the way you approach Total War: Warhammer II‘s campaign. Construct any of these buildings: Handmaidens’ Gallery, Archive, Grand Repository, Elven Gardens – +500 gold; +1 influence; +7 way-fragments. You should be able to do this within your next turn since this faction only has Bhagar left under its control. Start the battle with your whole army except the dragon princes in the near left corner of the map facing the near edge, ready to take on the reinforcements.

Because of the enemy units versus what your force has early on, I would suggest taming Bruwor or Shackolot first as the others can be a pain in the Asur butt.

Your powerbase will be your initial province + settlements previously held by Eshin + Caledor.

Firstly hang on to your starting units(or at the very least the mage, dragon and dragon princes) and fill out the rest of your army with as many archers as possible. Consult the Dragon – Gain that dragon’s unique buff for 10 turns; costs 2,000 gold. The best part, however, is that you can safely dismiss and recruit them — even as part of another army — all within the same turn. The first few steps in Prince Imrik’s Total War: Warhammer II Vortex campaign are quite easy enough. Focus all fire on the dragon and you can put Imrik (or your dragon if it still has plenty of health) out in front so Shackolot goes for them and doesn't land in the middle of your archers. The first few steps in Prince Imrik’s Total War: Warhammer II Vortex campaign are quite easy enough. The buff obtained when you “Consult the Dragon” lasts only 10 turns. Leave it be – Do nothing.
