Version 1.3 is out!
If you think Elves are all about balance and harmony, then thank the gods that you did not witness the intense debates raging over how best to help this faction - the Rules Team wanted to focus on identity, but the Balancing Team wanted to perfect internal balance. In the end, the only unanimous decision was to give Unseen Arrows a boost to 40%, but with Briar Maidens counting towards it. The BSB is getting cheaper, additional Sentinels, and min. sized units of blade dancers (although they have been moved to Fleet of Foot). Pathfinders and Sentinels were deemed too dangerous combined, so they will share a max.3 units limit. Thicket Beasts can now be scoring, but with some limits to prevent large blocks auto-claiming objectives. The last minute buffs to Forest Rangers, Kestral Knights, and Sentinels should take some of the sting off - and Entwined Roots will be getting a price decrease since they replace Scoring. A very tangled knot to balance indeed.
