Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Order of Loremasters starts in a war with the Sentinels of Xeti.

Your first goal is to secure your island province and then defeat the Sentinels of Xeti. Next you need to claim the territory of the Blood Hall Coven. Once you have at least 2 armies you can battle the Skaven to the north.

The Court of Lybaras and the Spine of Sotek Dwarfs should help secure your borders to the south and to the east.

As a High Elven faction your battle tactics should start with using defensive formations, forcing your enemies to come to you while under fire from your ranged units.
