Legendary Lords or LLs are powerful individuals from Warhammer Fantasy lore. In Total War: Warhammer and it's sequels, they are unique Lords (a type of character unit) who are playable in the campaign, multiplayer and custom battles. Each campaign must be started with the player choosing a faction and a legendary lord.

Some unique lords, such as Boris Todbringer, are technically not Legendary Lords, despite being similar.

How Legendary Lords work[edit | edit source]

Recruiting legendary lords:

  • Only one of each Legendary Lord can be recruited at a time - they are unique.
  • When starting a campaign, players pick a faction and then a Legendary Lord to begin with.
  • Some factions have multiple legendary lords available.
    • In this case, the player must pick one to start the campaign with and then must complete certain objectives to "unlock" his/her faction's other legendary lords for recruitment.
  • If a legendary lord belongs to a different faction (of the same race), the player may instead confederate that faction to gain access to the legendary lord.

Other info:

  • During a campaign, when engaging in diplomacy with a playable faction, that faction will have a Legendary Lord representing them as the faction leader.
  • Some legendary lords require paid DLC to play as, others may be free but require the player to download them from Steam manually.
  • Legendary Lords will have special quest missions, which often culminate in a set piece battle and the lord gaining a legendary item.
  • Legendary Lords cannot permanently die (only be temporarily wounded) unless their entire faction is wiped out.
