Total War Warhammer 3 - Quick beginner's tips

  1. Think about the composition of your army carefully. Different types of units have different uses. Cavalry/monsters will swiftly attack the enemy's rear/flanks, infantry will stop the attack, and archers and artillery will decimate the enemy before they even reach you, etc.
  2. Don't forget about the economy! Remember that maintaining an army costs money, and accepting each new lord increases your military expenses by 1%. At first it doesn't seem like much, but it will quickly become a large amount. This tip is especially important in the beginning, when you aren't able to participate in large and numerous battles and profit from them. Therefore, do not train more armies than necessary, unless the profits from the war exceed the costs.
  3. Have at least one hero in each army. The army is managed by lords, but heroes can be very useful as they add bonuses for soldiers (depending on their class). Some will speed up losses replenishment, others will train units etc. In addition, they can deal with enemy agents who can weaken your troops.
  4. Merge provinces. The province system was added in the Total War series some time ago. Most of them consist of several smaller areas - the capital and settlements. Unfortunately, you will only get the full management potential after you conquer the entire region.
  5. Use groups. You can group your units on the battle map. This allows you to manage them faster during battles. Groups are extremely useful because you can select several units with just one click. To do this, select soldiers (Alt + RMB and Shift + RMB) and press the G key.

More tips can be found on a separate page of the guide: Beginner's guide.
