Faction Changes Overview
Honest and straight-forward is how Baratheons act, so I’ll keep it direct and simple. There were few changes and no points adjustments. Units are performing as expected in both Loyalties. Attachments were minorly affected by General Ability Changes.
We’ve listed all the changes below by category to help you out.
General Ability Changes
Specific Ability Changes
The Champions of the Stag are an elite, attrition Cavalry unit. As such, they have a great Defense value and many Attack Abilities. Their over-the-top stats were pushing the unit into a much more aggressive role than intended.
The Queen’s Men may only draw the Baratheon Justice card now. By being able to draw both Baratheon Justice and Baratheon Conviction, they were a little too versatile.
The night is dark and full of terrors, but it only gets darker as the flames extinguish and our Visions in the Flames for now dissipate. Baratheons can confidently stick to their current battle plans.
