Raven Heralds (Repeater Crossbow) is a Dark Elves unit in Total War: Warhammer II's downloadable content, The Queen and the Crone. The Raven Heralds appear from nowhere, leaving piles of corpses in their wake.
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ Very Fast: This unit can run circles around most other units, taunting and harrassing the enemy or evading its missile fire.
The notable upgrade between this version and the standard one is that the riders are now flying. This enables a greater degree of mobility, but does limit the damage output as there are fewer models. When set against enemy lords on large mounts or large monsters in general, they can produce significant damage.
