Ranking up affects characters and regular units differently.
Characters[edit | edit source]
Characters such as legendary lords, lords and heroes gain experience and rank up. Ranking up will give the character 1 skill point with which to purchase a new skill from their skill tree. Ranking up will also unlock new skills in the skill tree, as well as quests (sometimes culminating in a set piece battle), mounts, items, spells, other abilities and more.
- In Total War: Warhammer the max rank of characters is 30.
- In Total War: Warhammer II, the max rank of characters is 40.
A few unique characters do not gain experience or rank up.
Regular units[edit | edit source]
The regular units in an army gain ranks which are depicted with bronze, silver, or gold chevrons on their unit card.
|Rank||Chevrons||XP Required||Cumulative XP||Leadership Bonus||Melee Attack||Melee Defence|
|Rank 1||1 Bronze||1100||1100||+1||+1||+1|
|Rank 2||2 Bronze||600||1700||+2||+2||+2|
|Rank 3||3 Bronze||800||2500||+3||+3||+3|
|Rank 4||1 Silver||1100||3600||+4||+4||+4|
|Rank 5||2 Silver||1400||5000||+5||+5||+5|
|Rank 6||3 Silver||2000||7000||+6||+6||+6|
|Rank 7||1 Gold||3600||10600||+7||+7||+7|
|Rank 8||2 Gold||4900||15500||+8||+8||+8|
|Rank 9||3 Gold||6500||22000||+10|
Ranged units also become more accurate and possibly have shorter reload times with each chevron.
