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 Neutrals for this update, listing what units have Ability changes, what units have changed in points, as well as changes that are unique to the Neutrals.
If you want to read more about general changes in Abilities overall, please check this article: Visions in the Flames 2023 (V2021.S02) - General
In most of the changes to the updates for 2021.S02, the Neutral remain, well… Neutral! Currently, we are happy with how most Neutral units and Attachments are faring both as a faction and as a supplement to other Factions (except Free Folk). We’ve listed all the changes below by category to help you out.
General Ability Changes
Points Costs Changes
We’ve taken a point from this unit to make it more in line with its other ranged peers.
Specific Ability Changes
We’ve reworked the Glory Seeker into a more defensive Cavalry Attachment. Having Rally Cry as an option for most factions was affecting game balance and faction identity.
We’ve reduced their Attack dice to make them more in line with other heavy Cavalry units.
We’ve constricted Petyr’s first effect to 3 times per game. This was to incentivize players to use him more strategically.
Once again, short and sweet! With the Neutrals, we finish our last Visions in the Flames for 2021.S02. We hope these visions have helped clarify our intent with this season’s updates.
