    Captain Heralds now do Westernesse damage

    So, this change is a good one, definitely. However I think there was a missed opportunity. Wouldn't it make more sense if Dwarf Heralds did Ancient Dwarf damage? And Elf Heralds should be doing Beleriand damage.

    Damage Type doesn't matter much in the game these days but I think having the option to have Heralds of different Damage Types is both lore- and gameplay-friendly.

    Good idea - I would support this.

    That is wrong.

    The rest is quiet ok, but will let us see only Elven Heralds.
    At least it is nice to have a Damagetype on the Heralds. The Loremaster had that Option with the Sabertooth Cat. The Others did also only common Damage.

    Funny fact is that some creatures reflect Westerness the damage output is low, so our Herald would not die :-) (maybe the archer)

    /signed. Would give me some incentive to use different heralds sometimes.

    I saw this thread late but i think it is a pretty good idea to match the damage kind the herald do with their race. Now that captains have all elf heralds recently added, the heralds could do either the 3 basic mele damage kinds. ...& lighning why not? Captains already do a little lightning damage to with their cries.

    • Dwarf heralds = dwarf kind damage
    • Human heralds = westernese damage
    • Elf heralds = beleriand damage
    • Oathbreakers = lightning damage
