Overview[edit | edit source]

Cult of Excess is a Dark Elves faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer II. They provide an early challenge for Lothern in the campaign.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Cults of Excess, as the many deviant groups associated with the worship of forbidden Elven deities are collectively known, have remained a constant thorn in the side of the High Elves, even after the Sundering. Most commonly known of these proscribed sects are the Cult of Luxury and the Cult of Pleasure. The Cult of Pleasure in particular is renowned for its wanton violence and cruelty, something that has earned it the enmity of all right-minded High Elves.[1a]

Unlike their cousins on Ulthuan, the Dark Elves now openly pay homage to these forbidding powers, the worship of whom rose through the Cults of Excess that preceded the civil war.[2a]

Starting provinces[edit | edit source]

Eye of the Vortex
Mortal Empires
  • The rest of Eataine aside from the Lothern settlement.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since Avelorn suffers penalties if Ulthuan is invaded, especially the Inner Ring, it would be in Alarielle the Radiant's best interests to annihilate this Dark Elf faction, as well.
