Post So, who ended up being your favorite Warlord?
Well we got the catching up thread out of the way. So fellow survivors and hangers on, let's do some reminiscing.

So, with the game dead and no more being produced it's fairly easy to be retrospective. As the title asks, who ended up being your favorite Warlord? You can parse it out however you want, if you want to pick more than one, one from each block, one from AEG, one from PI, whatever. Let's just discuss favorites.

Mine ended up being Arden Tide.

He was just the perfect combination for me. A throwback to an old (and very good) fiction, a Good Wizard, a FreeK, and although his ability was really more suitable to Dev mechanics, it was still relatively solid since Wizard spells threw out a lot of DC checks.

A shame that nothing more was ever done with him, but he was still just what I wanted. Well, I wouldn't have minded a Summoner FreeK 'lord either but still, I was thrilled to get him and it was a treat to actually be an established character.

Runner up would have to be Jin Valford. I really dug the Lycanthropes and the change mechanic was interesting. Plus, awesome dragon man kicking butt, why not?

Merc side, would be Caitlyn the Free. Again, Good Wizard. I liked Zartoch but his copies mechanic was just bad (He did at least get a good death storywise). She was one of the many nobody Warlords that were never properly introduced and never developed beyond a name and some scraps of flavor text, but still, a pretty cool warlord for me.
Runner up would be Allisara, she was a pretty solid warlord and I liked Summoners. Plus she was the only Good Summoner.

Oh and uh, 4e. I liked Captain Alera. Keziah was okay.

So, how bout you guys?

Arden Tide may have seemed more Dev mechanic based possibly because in the story he was being mentored by Master K'Hallaek? I only really played the game in High School with some friends, so I never really played all that much of the range of the game. I played Dwarves because their story was just so heartbreaking and fell in love with that. So my list is just based on what I think looks cool/cool story lore:

Chosen - The Bloody Mistress - Betrayal is always so juicey
Dev - Jodin Drac/Commander Kaiten - Bad ass ninjaish/Old guard
Dw - Sjonegaard/King Alaric tied with Loki - Earth father cmoooon~/New king lore wise and tied with the crazy inventor
Elv - Rathe/The Lady of Pain - Bane of the Freeks/Kinky Vixen
Freek - Albrecht/Uriel and Talin Tzin - Fallen angel goodness/Cool swordsman
Merc - Ter-Soth/Menhetiri - Dwarf story tie in/ Dig the Egyptian vibe
Nothrog - Sav'rukk/Set'rokh - Interesting rogue faction/Cool tactician (was this char female?)

I like their artwork, abilities and have used them all to some degree of success. There are others I really like as well but these are my #1s.

Mine is definitely Sceth Hellbringer. My first love, I actually played him all the way from 2002 until CE came along. I beat a lot of Sorscha, Behlial, General Lund, Xod, etc. with that deck. I can almost recall the entire list:

1 Sceth Hellbringer
2 Mangonel aka Quadilbet-slayer
2 Maddawc aka bad card
1 Urg
3 Ram'za
3 Varg
3 Murgan
3 Flamespitter pre-erratta
3 Toren Yscar
2 Ballista Crew aka Brine Fiend-slayer
2 Catapult Crew

3 Exhaustion

3 Wyvernsteed
2 The King's Lady pre-erratta
2 Whirlwind Boots
2 Black Sun Helm
1 Gloves of Mercy
1 Bracers of Ogre Power
1 Blue Wyrm's Egg
1 Tome of Champions
1 Anandale's Armor
1 Uthanak's Ring

I can't recall 2 characters and 7 actions/items from the deck, but that was the jist of it. Deck was awful! :lol: I thought it was pretty good at the time.


Also this.

That's always a tough question for me. My first warlord was Krun towards the end of CE, who was quickly replaced when I pulled an Ar'tek...I always had a thing for Nothrogs after that, with Ar'Tek being near the top.
I've always always loved Care Bear (Cairbre) as a Warlord as well. Never having a dead card is so wonderful, and there's so much fun you can do with him. But some of my favorite decks probably go back to Nothrogs, with a consistent Kothkah Wyvern drop, and Brikta-Fires of Fate-Ker'zath being two of my favorite creations.

That is a tough question, I am a dwarf loyalist but I will reply about all factions and about my favourite warlord from each faction.

The Chosen: Sanga-Kish Because it epitomizes what the Chosen are all about, blood and destruction.

Nothrog: De'zicrah She was one of the funniest ranged warlords and one of the best blitzers in CE.

Mercenary: General Lund You ask for a Warlord that is all about synergy with his army? You got it! You want him to be of the class with the best synergy options as well? Here!

Free Kingdoms: Terak Justicebringer The lore itself makes an already epic Paladin Warlord.

Elf: Winter, Eternal Perhaps the best Overlord/Warlord character, too bad the set will never be finished... :(

Dwarf: Garn Hearthstone My man, my man!!! I played him at every opportunity! Uber healing and building potensial, just my favourite Warlord, ever! Epitomy of dwarf cleric.

Deverenian: Sir Aleron D'ilchant simple yet effective ability.

I have a lot of favorites. A lot of them were really interesting to me.

The Chosen: Nin-Gula She was the most fun for me to play, and it was fun to give the thralls big bonuses, then kill them off just before they enemy does to buff the others.

Nothrog: De'zicrah This was the first warlord I made myself and was really attached to.

Mercenary: Shah'syss I'm not huge into most of the mercs. He was one of my favorite warlords in 4e though, and is tons of fun to play.

Free Kingdoms: Sir Lucian Something about a lower level warlord getting stronger to take on the best of them is really awesome.

Elf: Raclesis This is my guy right here. Considered one of the worst warlords ever, I was determined to find a way to make him good and when I figured out a good way to play him it was just too fun.

Dwarf: Aridun of the Stone Just keep crapping out gargoyles over and over. Really fun to play.

Deverenian: Yavlo the Kindled Simple to play, fun to play, easy to teach with, and he's the warlord that got my back into warlord.

Dallen Stormlost and Tephiroth.

Tephiroth was my first Warlord, and I was the only one at my LGS who played Elves, for a long time.

As for Dallen, I like his flavor, his art, and I like the cleric/fighter combo.

How can there be any answer to this apart from King Xod?

He is the best faction.
He is a veritable pocket knife of versatility
He fetches items and thins out your deck.
He provides a boost to all his Dwarfs for equipping items.
He is the best faction.
