While he may be the youngest of the Chaos Gods, Slaanesh is not one you can underestimate in Total War Warhammer III. The pursuit for excess, gratification, hedonism, pain and perfection will be at the cost of any other soul.
N’Kari the Arch-Temptor is the Legendary Lord, an extremely fast and vicious Exalted Daemon excelling in hunting isolated enemy characters and units. Harvester of Souls, his unique passive ability, allows him to heal up whenever an enemy unit is fully killed near him. His Willing Prey ability helps with this, significantly reducing enemy melee defence and attack and opening them to an assured death.
The Slaanesh in Total War Warhammer III seek to separate the enemy ranks with hit and run tactics, dealing the final blow to anyone who breaks away. Their armies gain battle currency by killing routing units, usable on three abilities to further accentuate their playstyle.
In the campaign, the Dark Prince’s hedonistic message must go far and wide, utilizing mechanics such as:
- Gifts of Slaanesh: Lords and Heroes of Slaanesh can impart gifts on enemy characters by defeating them in battle or through hero actions, thus imposing a bundle of negative effects on the unit.
- Seduction: By increasing seductive influence, the forces of Slaanesh can forcibly vassalise a target faction.
- Devotees: Slaaneshi armies can capture Devotees from battles, from Chaos cults, and though other acts. Devotees are used for creating cults, the raising of Disciple Armies, and to create vassals.
The Slaanesh armies are helmed by Keepers of Secrets and the Herald of Slaanesh, the core consisting of deadly Daemonettes and Fiends, while the Heartseekers and Hellstriders will ensure a swift support.
