Alith Anar is a High Elves ranged legendary lord infantry unit, introduced in Total War: Warhammer II Resurgent Update. In campaign, he leads the Nagarythe faction.

Playing Alith Anar and Nagarythe requires downloading a free DLC from Steam here.

Alith Anar is the Shadow King, a revenant who seeks the grisly death of every Dark Elf in retribution for Malekith’s sins.

Description[edit | edit source]

Tradition maintains that the folk of Nagarythe chose Alith Anar as ruler after Malekith fled into the west. The Lord was the last heir of a great line, his forebears slain by the Witch King’s minions. In the following dark days there were many Druchii still hiding in Ulthuan, so Anar took to their eradication. Those not slain in battle were crucified upon trees - grisly monuments to the vengeance of Nagarythe’s Shadow King. He became a revenant who sought the death of every traitor-kin who dared live in the Sundering’s wake. Even now, thousands of years later, the Shadow King still hunts, and will not rest his bow until Malekith’s death.

Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Armour-Piercing Missiles: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
  • Good Range: This unit has a larger range than most other units of the same class. This allows it to take out hostile missile units before they can come into firing range.
  • Vanguard Deployment: This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The premiere ranged Legendary Lord, Alith Anar is capable of taking out enemy Lords before they even get to melee range. While he can do OK against lower tier enemies in melee, Alith should almost always be sniping enemies and moving, as it’s where he shines. When upgraded, he can be almost impossible to pin down, with fast speed, infinite vigour and the ability to make doubles capable of harming the enemy.

When going against Alith Anar, cavalry is key. His ranged damage will soften up heavily armored units and Lords too much to be practical, and even a mounted Lord will be significantly damaged before closing the gap. Factions such as the Vampires or Skaven can spawn a unit to immediately tie him up and take him out of ranged combat, which can allow damage dealers to close the gap and finish him off.
