Overview[edit | edit source]

Diplomacy[edit | edit source]

As Avelorn, you cannot negotiate with this faction. As all Ulthuani High Elf factions have the "Guardian" diplomatic trait they will react negatively to the Scourge of Khaine attacking Ulthuan. This combined with the natural dislike from the High Elves results in the Dark Elf faction having lots of enemies all around them. They have to rely on their brethren from the north for help, especially Crone Hellebron's Blood Voyages.

Diplomatic traits:[edit | edit source]

Aggressive - "Belligerent and warmongering, their armies reach far with little regard for defence."

Supremacy - "Hegemony over all lands - no treasures, no resources, no realms are out of reach of the Druchii."

Rightly Suspicious - "No Druchii is ever a friend - all are potential enemies."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Depending on who you play as, the Scourge of Khaine can be the faction with highest strength at turn one. This is likely because of them controlling around six settlements from the start.
