Thrones of Decay is OUT NOW - pick up the bundle on Steam.

Decay has arrived in the world of Total War: WARHAMMER III with brand new additions to Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs.

For a deep dive into everything arriving in Thrones of Decay, including a heap of FreeLC content, be sure to swing by the links below to catch up on anything you may have missed!

Introducing Tamurkhan, the Maggot LordIntroducing Elspeth von DrakenIntroducing Malakai Makaisson

But if you're short on time, here are some of the highlights for Update 5.0:

  • Tamurkhan, The Maggot Lord, Elspeth Von Draken, and Malakai Makaisson arrive in WARHAMMER III with Thrones of Decay!
  • Keep a tally of the countless plagues spread in Nurgle's name as Epidemius, a new FLC Legendary Lord for Nurgle.
  • Tackle campaigns reborn with revitalisation reworks and tweaks to Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs. 
  • Obtain a powerful artifact, or seal away its corruption, with the Nemesis Crown.   

UPDATE 30/04/24 16:00 BST:
We've discovered that the Rot Beast mounts have escaped from their stables. We're rounding them up as quick as we can, but in the meantime you may see them in-game even if you haven't purchased Thrones of Decay. Once they've been corralled, you may see some odd behaviours if you had the mount equipped, but rest assured this should not break your campaign.


Total War: WARHAMMER III - Thrones of Decay

The Thrones of Decay pack introduces 3 new Legendary Lords, for Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs, usable in both the Realm of Chaos and Immortal Empires campaigns.   

Embrace conflict, ingenuity, and decay with a new suite of Legendary Lords, Heroes, Units, and Mechanics to enhance your campaign roster on and off the battlefield. Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord, Elspeth von Draken, and Malakai Makaisson arrive in Total War: WARHAMMER III. They bring unique campaign mechanics to their respective races, with a brand-new objective in Realm of Chaos independent from the Ursun storyline, plus new Units and Legendary Heroes to help them achieve total victory and secure the Nemesis Crown.

  • 3 new Legendary Lords join the battle. 
  • Gather Chieftains from powerful factions across the known world and become the ultimate Warlord of Nurgle as Tamurkhan, The Maggot Lord. 
  • Embrace the strengths of magic and gunpowder with Nuln’s Imperial Gunnery School, serving Elspeth von Draken. 
  • Seek a glorious death, reap the rewards, and test your latest innovations as Malakai Makaisson. 
  • Improve your odds with 3 new Legendary Heroes, 15 Units, 3 Lords, 3 Heroes, and a further 9 Regiments of Renown.  

Epidemius - FreeLC

Epidemius is the epicentre of his army, and excels at being a support specialist, blessing the grotesque gifts of the Urfather upon his troops to enhance their combat prowess. Should he wish to examine potential experimental candidates up close, his Nurgling-hoisted Palanquin will transport him into battle, whilst his disease-imbued rusty sword will rip the enemy ranks limb from limb.

As Nurgle’s Tallyman, Epidemius must oversee his master’s domination of the world through the spreading and cataloguing of plagues. As these plagues spread far and wide between non-Nurgle victims, they contribute to his Tally of Pestilence, greatly increasing his power.

The Tally of Pestilence system counts the number of non-Nurgle armies and settlements currently infected by Epidemius’ plagues. The greater the number of infected targets, the greater the gifts Epidemius has access to, including campaign bonuses and unique abilities. However, the Tally of Pestilence can both increase and decrease as plagues heighten and wane, so you’ll want to ensure some degree of momentum.

Within the Immortal Empires campaign, Epidemius ventures forth from the Forest of Decay.

Available tomorrow as a free addition to Nurgle to all CA Account holders, alongside the launch of Update 5.0 and Thrones of Decay. Be sure to create an account of your own! There's more info about CA Accounts here.

UPDATE 5.0.0

UPDATE 02/05/24 11:44 BST:

The following notes were originally missing from the patch notes despite being implemented in Update 5.0 - thanks to everyone who brought this to our attention!

  • Empire/Dwarf Buildings
    • Both Empire and Dwarf have had a full sweep of their building trees to bring them up to date. We've reduced the need for secondary buildings for certain units, moved a few units arounds and in general made sure that each building feels thematic and impactful.
  • Videos
    • As part of 5.0 we've remastered and remade some of the old frontend videos for a variety of Legendary Lords. Please enjoy them in all their higher bitrate and reshot glory!
      • Malekith
      • Morathi
      • Teclis
      • Tyrion
      • Mazdamundi
      • Kroq-Gar
      • Queek
      • Skrolk
      • Throgg
      • Wulfrik
  • Gotrek and Felix
    • Gotrek and Felix have been reworked so that both of them are now legendary heroes. After completing a new quest battle where you rescue the pair they will join your cause for the rest of the campaign. Each hero now has a full skill tree that you can progress though.
  • Ironman Mode
    • We've added a new Ironman save option to the game, that allows you to choose if you want to allow manual saves or not, regardless of what actual campaign/battle difficulty you're playing on. Thanks to Arkcard for requesting this. Note: Ironman mode has been separated from Legendary difficulty.


Stability & Performance

  • Fixed a rare crash when opening the Vampire Coast's RoR pool.
  • Greatly reduced the temporary freeze that can occur when Ultimate Crisis mode fires every end game at once.
  • Pressing escape while dragging ancillaries in the Character Details panel no longer freezes them in that place indefinitely.
  • Fixed a softlock that could occur when AI Katarin or AI Kostaltyn won the followers race.


Below are changes made to the gameplay systems, AI, and other mechanics that define how the game is played.

Rules & Systems

  • Fixed Settlement building costs showing the unmodified value on not yet unlocked buildings (higher tiers).
  • Gifting a region to another faction no longer incurs control penalties.
  • Special Heroes that come from rites (Ptra's Necrotect, Pestilent Scheme Priest and the DOOOOM! Engineer) can no longer equip magic items, as they would be lost as soon as the Hero performed their action.
  • Fixed an issue where recruiting units from a horde army was not possible when the horde army was within a settlement.
  • Fixed Action Points not updating correctly when re-recruiting a lord after convalescing. 
  • Units with the Always Flying attribute can no longer melee attack buildings (gates, walls, constructible defences).
  • The UI now informs the player why recruitment is unavailable, when it's because they cannot change stance.
  • Added a tooltip to character trait choices in dilemmas.
  • Changing the battle difficulty when on the pre-battle screen now correctly updates the auto-resolve result.
  • Fixed effect range in ability tooltips not showing correctly in campaign when it has been modified by effects.
  • Fixed an issue that was stopping abilities from correctly decreasing reload speed.

AI Rules & Logic

  • Addressed issues of AI units moving indecisively when attempting to enter settlements.

Exploit Fixes

  • Fixed a UI exploit that allowed banners to be assigned to units that shouldn't be able to equip them.

Battle Highlights

Lore of Life Visual & Audio Overhaul

All of the Spells in the Lore of Life have had a visual and audio overhaul.

Here are the new visual effects for Regrowth:

Nurgle Army Ability Point Generation

The way that Nurgle generates points for army abilities has been changed, as we felt it was a bit un-engaging and out of the Nurgle player's control in some cases.

Nurgle units no long have to take damage to gain points to use on army abilities, instead army ability points are now gained based on how many hexes are affecting enemy units. A hex is a negative debuff or contact effect like Poison.

Point generation also has a tiered hierarchy, each subsequent tier of point generation overrides the previous:

  • Contact phase effects yield the least amount of points
  • Passive abilities yield a moderate amount of points
  • Active abilities yield the most amount of points.

This incentivises Nurgle players to spread as much disease throughout the battlefield as possible to gain access to Curse of the Slug, Fecundity and Rot, Glorious Rot.

Homing Projectile Refinement

You can call it homing 2.1 if you want!

We've returned to the table to take one more crack at one of the big gaps left in our updated homing implementation from 4.1.0. While we were generally happy with how the change worked against single entities, we felt like there was more work to be done.

Previously, when assigning a homing behaviour to a projectile, it would be passed a target entity. And all homing projectiles fired by the same entity or unit would be given the same target. Leading to excessive overkill and poor performance vs multi entity units, even when firing many projectiles.

Under the new system, we randomly assign each individual projectile a target, roughly evenly spreading the homing targets out across all the entities in the target unit.

To help us demonstrate, Hawk ICBMS:

We'll be keeping a close eye on the various multi-projectile magic missiles in the game in the coming patches to gauge the impact of this, and possibly make some more number adjustments.

Pursuit Behaviour

While investigating unit pursuit behaviour at the start of the Thrones of Decay (that's when Unit A is chasing Unit B off the battlefield after Unit B has routed), we interrogated a limitation where only 35% of the chasing unit was allowed to initiate an attack. We have now removed this limitation, which should make pursuing units more responsive, but also enable units to keep the pressure applied to a target once it has broken.

New Unit Attributes

Slayer - New for Thrones of Decay and applied to all Slayer-type units, the Slayer attribute makes the unit count as a Slayer for ability targeting and also makes the unit immune to reductions in Weapon Strength.

Directional Shield - Units with the Directional Shield attribute have 360 degree missile block, but the unit's base missile block is multiplied as follows:

  • 1.0x from the front
  • 0.5x from the sides
  • 0.1x from the rear

The Steam Tank has this attribute, which means that it is important to keep it facing towards any incoming missiles.

Ballistic Plating - If the unit has a Missile Block Chance, it may now apply to all types of projectiles, apart from Magic Missiles or Spell-based Bombardments.

Invulnerable - Units with the Invulnerable attribute don't take damage from any sources.

Cannot Die - Units with the Cannot Die attribute can take damage but entities cannot be killed.

The eagle-eyed among you may notice some of these aren't entirely new functionality, but we've broken the "cannot die" and "Invulnerable" behaviours into attributes, giving us better control over how we apply it and a tooltip for you to read when facing against it!

Battle UI Updates

Regeneration Rate & Healing Power Tooltip

We've now expanded the health bar tooltip so that it now displays the following info:

  • Health Regeneration Rate
  • Healing Cap (when applied)
  • Healing Power
  • Barrier Regeneration Rate
  • Barrier Cap (when applied)
  • Barrier Recharge Delay

We've also updated the health bar to display the amount of barrier points without hovering the tooltip!

Healing power will automatically adjust as it is raised and lowered by effects.

There are still a couple of bugs to iron out with the system in order to get it to work correctly with Intensity-based abilities and numbers with two decimal places, but we hope to address these in a patch.

Lazy Health Bars

Health bars now have a "lazy" effect where you are temporarily able to visualise how much damage a unit has taken recently. It's tricky to make out on the gif below where we've used our debug cannon(tm) to throw a ton of rocks onto these poor unsuspecting Marauders of Tzeentch, but as their health goes down you can see a portion of the bar becomes red for a moment, before ticking down smoothly.

Separation of Passive Abilities, Unit Attributes and Resistances

In the unit info panel, we've separated Passive Abilities, Unit Attributes and Resistances into their own respective categories.

Spell Mastery is also listed on any units which can cast true spells (bound spells don't count!), and will adjust as Spell Mastery is increased or reduced.

Domination Mode Changes

Gameplay Changes

Following community feedback, we have removed the unlock timer on capture points to allow them to be contested as soon as the match begins.

Ticket Limit is now configurable in custom lobbies.

Removed Maps

The following maps have been removed from the Quickmatch pool following community feedback:

  • The Silver Spire
  • The Eye in the North
  • Galleon's Cove
  • Grove of Slaughter
  • Crossing the Sea of Claws

Races & Balance


  • Fixed an issue where The Black Pit only had access to minor settlement buildings.
  • Technology research time now updates after a hero uses steal technology that turn.
  • Completed destroy faction(s) mission objectives no longer lose their progression ticks when loading a save.
  • Boris Todbringer and Red Duke can now be recruited after confederation by only owning Warhammer I; no longer requiring Beastmen and Wood Elves DLC respectively
  • Replaced effects that increased hit points with melee defence instead on certain items and item sets, as hit points cannot be increased via items. 

Items (General)

  • Removed the melee defence effect from the Shield of Ptolos item to better suit its rarity and description.

General Updates

  • The Black Ark Aristocracy building chain now displays correctly in the Advanced Military building category.
  • Black Ark buildings now display the scope of the upkeep reducing effects (just to units that are in the Black Ark army).


  • Blade of the Blood Queen (Har Ganeth Executioners) now have Immune to Psychology like the regular Har Ganeth Executioners unit.
  • Blades of the Blood Queen (Har Ganeth Executioners)

    • Added Attribute(s): Immune to Psychology

Dwarfs have gotten a pretty hefty amount of changes this time around, the highlights being the introduction of the Slayer attribute across all Slayer units, rebalanced Trollhammer Torpedos, rebalanced Gyrocopters and bombers, as well as a rebalanced Flame Cannon that is now more accurate to it's tabletop incarnation.


  • Reduced spawn rate of Archivist follower for dwarves & the Student follower no longer drops when lords level up as they can only be equipped by heroes.
  • Recycling items for Oathgold now correctly updates the state of other items in the Forge panel.


  • Replaced Fire Whilst Moving Attribute for Gyrocopters (Brimstone Gun) with Causes Fear gained from the Interchangeable Parts technology.

Irondrakes (Trollhammer Torpedoes)

Trollhammer Torpedos have received a range and velocity buff, making them more proficient in dealing with large armoured targets at longer ranges.

  • Base Missile Damage: 28 → 20
  • Armour Piercing Missile Damage: 116 → 75
  • Bonus vs. Large: 24 → 20
  • Enabled Flaming Attacks
  • Effective Range: 90 → 170
  • Projectile Velocity: 35 → 80


The full might of the Dawi air-force has now arrived, so Gyrocopters have been rebalanced to include more entities. Their weapons have also had a bit of an overhaul, with the Steam Gun on the regular Gyrocopter being adept at damaging armoured targets.

  • Armour Piercing Explosion Damage: 8 → 6
  • Explosion Radius: 5 → 3

Gyrocopters (Brimstone Guns)

  • Brimstone Guns have undergone a vast transformation to become more accurate to their tabletop incarnation. The Brimstone Gun now fires a stream of hot fire at the enemy, much like an Irondrake would.
  • The intention here is that the Brimstone Guns can now be used to hose down lightly armoured enemy infantry with fire, whilst the regular Gyrocopters pepper larger, more armoured targets with their AP Steam Gun.

Gyrobombers & Skyhammer (Gyrobomber)

Both the Gyrobomber and the Skyhammer have also been updated with the arrival of the Thunderbarge. Gyrobombers now come with 4 entities by default and have been rebalanced to reflect this.

  • Explosion Radius: 1 → 3

Flame Cannons

We've made some changes to the Flame Cannon to make it more accurate to the Tabletop rules from the 8th edition dwarf army book. The unit felt like it didn't capture the fantasy as well as it could have so we have updated it to better match it's core identity. The individual shots of the Flame Cannon deal less damage per shot than it used to, but the number of shots that it fires equates to more damage overall than it's previous incarnation.

  • Shots Per Volley: 1 → 6
  • Base Missile Damage: 260 → 45
  • Armour Piercing Missile Damage: 140 → 25
  • Effective Range: 280 → 200
  • Base Explosion Damage: 70 → 12
  • Armour Piercing Explosion Damage: 30 → 5

  • Recruitment Cost (MP): 1500 → 1600


  • Clarified some effects in Azhag the Slaughterer's skills to make it clear that they do not apply to Black Orc units - only Orc Boyz, Big 'Uns and Savage Orcs.

  • Hit Points: 5385 → 6685

Prince [Mount: Griffon]

Steam Tank

The Steam Tank has a brand new model and the animations have been tidied up a bit. The original model was very old, being one of the very first units we created for Total War: WARHAMMER back in 2016.

We never quite found the time and resource to revisit it and bring it up to the standards we have since moved on to in 2024, but found this DLC offered the perfect opportunity to give these centrepiece units a lick of polish they deserve.

Shoutout to Chris for making this happen!

The Steam Tank has also undergone a bit of a design overhaul.

  • The Steam Tank now has a wider turning arc to make it feel like a bit more of a beast of a vehicle when moving around the battlefield.
  • In melee the Tank will no longer use the ram attack against enemies, instead opting to blast hot jets of steam (from the steamed tanks that we'll be having, mmm steamed tanks). 
  • They may now fire on the move and an Engineer Commander sits proudly in the top, shooting at anything that comes too close. The Turret and Commander will also keep firing if the Hull Cannon runs out of ammo.
  • The Tank itself also now benefits from Missile Block Chance used in conjunction with the new Directional Shield attribute, allowing it to block Missiles with varying effect, depending on which side it is shot at from.


Here are the stat changes:

  • Recruitment Cost (MP): 1900 → 2100
  • Upkeep Cost: 475 → 525
  • Melee Defence: 10 → 20
  • Missile Block Chance %: 0 → 70
  • Added Attribute(s): Fire Whilst Moving, Directional Shield
  • Removed: Perfect Vigour
  • Base Weapon Damage: 60 → 80
  • Armour Piercing Weapon Damage: 140 → 220
  • Melee Bonus vs. Infantry: 18 → 15
  • Base Missile Damage: 88 → 95

  • Minimum Range: 0 → 5
  • Base Reload Time (Seconds): 11 → 10

  • Recruitment Cost (MP): 2300 → 2400
  • Recruitment Cost (SP): 2300 → 2400
  • Upkeep Cost: 575 → 600
  • The Emperor's Wrath also benefits from all of the changes listed for the regular Steam Tank above.


  • Adjusted Strength of Hardship and Taste of Battle empire red-line skills to have more focused effects and scopes. Strength of Hardship is now a defensive skill for melee infantry, Taste of Battle is now an offensive cavalry skill.

So just in the dwarf section we have:

- no stats for the „reworked“ brimstone guns, whereas the steam tank did get them

- an empty ability point

- a white lie about the flame cannon dealing more dmg, when it is 22 dmg difference and it just lost 80 range.

Did you guys forget about the launch tomorrow or why are these notes clearly unfinished?

The free update is great, but other than that there are very few, or you could say almost none at all, tweaks regarding the mechanics and difficulty of the campaign. Didn't notice any entries about tweaking the difficulty of the campaign or fixing and improving the AI. Also no feedback about the community previous suggestions for new mechanics of dwarves ((I would have been satisfied if they would have mentioned that some changes would be implemented later in patch 5.1, but they actually didn't). Kind of a little disappointed.

Could we get the option to gain Books of Nagash through military alliances much like Thorek and his parts system, please?
Also, please bring back elven colonies for the Asrai and Druchii already. Thank you.

These patch notes are incomplete CA. For example, they don't mention the new videos for campaign selection for WH2 races and Norsca, and also the lighting change for character portraits. Also no mention of the buildings redesign for some races.

I say you should take another pass at this doc and update it with all the new changes.

I will hold back my judgement weither the Flame Cannon nerf is really not as bad as it looks.
But I can't really say that I understand what its supposed to mean that some Runes now affect -1 units.

You have to do exactly what the hunt says to do. If it says raid you must raid. You can't capture the settlement or anything.

And not capture it before you start the hunt either, which means it's not working properly

So this is probably gonna get burried. But why bump price on gorbeast chariot on khorne lord?

He is currently using 66 speed value not the current 78 value of the other gorebeast chariots.

Either case meh patch.
