Hello Bannermen! Fábio Cury, Designer and Lead Developer of the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game writing to you here.
In this article, we will address the changes made to the Targaryens for this update, listing what units have Ability changes, what units have changed in points, as well as changes that are unique to the Targaryen.
If you want to read more about general changes in Abilities overall, please check this article: Visions in the Flames 2023 (V2021.S02) - General
Faction Changes Overview
Most Targaryen units and Attachments have been performing as we’ve expected. The Faction’s major changes were a consequence of the changes to General Abilities more than to specific units.
We’ve listed all the changes below by category to help you out.
General Ability Changes:
Points Costs Changes:
With the changes to Relentless, the Unsullied Officer can drop a point.
The Juvenile Dragons were not performing as 8 points units should. But we are very happy with how they are stats and ability-wise. By dropping them to 7, points we expect to see more individual dragons on the battlefield as well more Mother of Dragon lists.
Specific Ability Changes:
In a list where players focus on having more dragons, Daenerys was always a very vulnerable target. This change will allow her to be placed in more units.
This is a quality-of-life adjustment.
Completely removing the zone’s effect from the benefit of your opponent when they claimed it was too severe. We’ve changed the second half of the card so you may perform a 3” shift after your opponent resolves the zone’s effect. The unit performing the shift does not become Weakened anymore. This change will be an improvement for both Targaryen players and their opponents.
Bannermen! We’ve come to the end of this Visions in the Flames and we expect that the changes to the Targaryens will have little impact on how they are currently being played and fielded, with mostly improvements to units that might not have been fielded as often as players wished.
