Vampire (Death)

In amongst the fighting, a Vampire is a danger to her enemies, a vicious warrior and uncompromisingly cruel.

Vampires are the true masters of Undeath. Despite their curse, Vampires retain all of their devious intelligence, and hence all of their ambition and desire. This makes them very dangerous indeed, for they can continue to grow and learn, spending eternity perfecting their skills and honing their diabolical plans and schemes. A Vampire is ultimately a selfish creature who retains many of the traits and drives she possessed when mortal. Whilst the crudest of their kind exist only to feed, some lust after temporal power and conquest of the living. The Necrarchs strive to attain unparalleled necromantic skills, whereas Lahmnians possess immense wealth beyond the dreams of avarice. The greatest curse of Queen Neferata's legacy is that Vampires cannot live on normal food and drink, but must imbibe fresh blood for sustenance. For the youngest Vampires, this unnatural thirst is very strong. At this stage, they are often rash and easily caught and killed by Witch Hunters and other dedicated enemies of the night. Though most learn how to survive on less and less fresh blood until they need to feed only every few years, some never overcome their primal hunting instincts.

Abilities

  • Dark Benediction
    Dark Blessings given freely from long-dead souls follow in the Wight Kings' wake. And so the dead strive for Unlife...
  • Immortal Will
    Immortal spirits will refuse to leave the bounds of the mortal plane, and so cannot be put to rest with ease.
  • The Hunger
    As the Vampires rip apart their victims they feast on the blood that spills forth – gaining in strength and lost stamina.
  • Crumbling
    The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.
  • Disintegrating
    The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects, leaving naught but dust.

Attributes

  • Causes Fear
    This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • Encourage
    This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
  • {{tr:wh2_dlc09_undead_description}}

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Spellcaster
    This unit can cast spells.
  • Armoured
    Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
  • Decent Melee Combatant
    Despite being primarily a missile unit or spellcaster, this unit can also hold its own ground when fighting in melee.
