Slayer is one of those classes that really absolutely needs the level 20 talent to gain temporary health on kills.

Also, Slayer's intended purpose is less about dying quickly, more about dying well.

Their intended purpose is to amuse their team as they go catapulting over the first wave and in to the heart of the swarm.

I'm necroing this thread because a new expansion has been announced for the game, and boy it's a big one:

It adds beastmen as enemies. I am rather excited about it, since I really like the game already.

Looks pretty snazzy. I'm curious about how the weaves are going to turn out, but the concept of a "potentially infinite" endgame is interesting at least from a theoretical point of view.

I'm reasonably certain it'll get utterly hacked/broken within a few hours of release, of course, but that's just how it goes.


Shame about not having beastman adventure maps, but ah well... Beastmen are fun regardless, and it's nice to hear that they're trying to do some slightly different approaches to things.

I've actually got a copy of VT2 now, along with a computer that can probably run it (as well as it can be run, in any case), but now I've got the issue of having a mouse that refuses to cooperate on the surfaces I have available. So, yeah, don't particularly feel like playing "Bababardidin, the epileptic dwarf" at the moment.

Well this will probably be enough to bring me back to playing for a while. Setting aside the weaves, Beastmen just fucking rule.

Instead of just killing rats and swamp people... we get to kill animal things?  (I don't really know what beastmen are.)
Well, I was gonna buy this DLC anyways, regardless of what they put in.

Also, for anyone that has not played since... *checks last post before necro*  April 2018.  They changed the dodge mechanics so that enemies already launching attacks do not auto-track you for a longer period of time.  Enemies used to quickly adjust their attacks to hit you anyways after you dodge, now they swing at air.  (Or if you don't dodge far enough or go back to that same spot they are swinging at, it'll land anyways.) 
It mostly 'fixes' the ice skating thing that rothelms and the likes used to employ all the time with their overhead attacks.

Beastmen are just that: men wot are beasts. Goat faces, horns, hooves, opposable thumbs. I guess they're technically chaos mutants in the WHF world but they've been around a long, long time. They form tribes, worship chaos totems in the forest of the Old World, hang out with Minotaurs and all the other chaos-type beasties like Harpies.

They are the Gor, much the same way that the Broos are Broos.

So, yeah. They're originally humans that were exposed to minor chaos warping effects, and developed various bestial traits. Then they got chased off into the woods and basically became their own society/"species" of sorts, despite there still being considerable differences from one Gor to another, due to their nature. They just hate everything, most everything hates them in return, and fight happens.

Effectively, a bunch of angsty horns and hooves.


And Warhammer minotaurs are actually just one of the many subspecies of beastman. Specifically "Bullgor". Gor subspecies are normally lumped together based on characteristic traits (being about yea big, having a bull head, and being good in a scrap are the main classifications necessary for a proper Bullgor), and the general hierarchy is mostly determined by how big you are and, more importantly, how big your horns are and how many you've got.

Brays, for example, are the worst of the worst... They don't even have horns! They are the grots of the Gor, and will fling their pitifully hornless bodies into battle in the hopes of possibly dying a good death (and finally escaping the bullying from the upper classes). But they're cowards and shit at fighting, so that doesn't really work out too well either. They're so bad, they had to find a new name to place them even lower than the Ungors (not-quite-right gors, "no-horns", despite the fact that many will possess at least one horn)!

The article mentions Bestigors who, as you might be able to guess from the name, are the best. They're elites, they're really big, and they have magnificent horns... Often quite a few, at that!

Sometimes a Bestigor gets so Best that he actually manages to be noticed by senpai one of the Chaos Gods, which then results in them mutating into a Pestigor, Tzaangor, Slaangor, or Khorngor.

There's also the Bray Shamans, who despite the name actually have huge horns.

Don't forget Pestigors too.

reading is hard.

Also it's not quite clear how Beastmen actually reproduce. I'm not sure I actually *want* to know.
