Two relatively obvious points: Archdemons have outright created a new Initiative tier, making it much harder to pull ahead of them, but the upper portions of Initiative 7 have actually emptied out. In general Armored Princess has broken up Initiative/Speed tiers so that a greater portion of units have a unique tier, making turn order less opaque/frustrating to parse.


As with The Legend, here's units by primary damage type.

Note that I've continued to organize units by faction, with new units placed late within their own faction.

Physical (84)

Magic (16)

Poison (8)

Yeah, there's no new Poison damage units at all. New units that inflict Poisoning, sure, but nothing with the actual damage type.

Fire (6)

I haven't placed Demonologists under Magic because it's mostly not actually important that they do Magic damage against Demons, except in the sense that they're not using their normal Fire damage against these specific Fire-resistant units.

Astral (1)

Yeah, Goblin Shaman are the only unit in the entire game that does Astral damage on a default attack, and there's no unit that eg has multiple charges on a readily-accessible Astral damage Talent. Blood Shaman and Rune Mages can do Astral damage every few turns, but the delay is significant and they don't even do that much damage when they hit.


And... that's the actual last Armored Princess post!

So yeah, next is the Warriors of the North introduction post.
