Total War: Warhammer is set to launch its "biggest DLC to date" tomorrow—The Realm of the Wood Elves. With it, the Glade Lords of Athel Loren are set to make their debut; with the higher ranked among them riding "rare and noble" Forest Dragons.
As the leaders and guardians of the Asrai, the Glade Lords' top priority is keeping their woodland homes free of intruders—a historic process which has seen the highborn faction become adept in both archery and melee combat.

Unlockable mounts for this race include the Elven Steed, the Great Eagle and the Forest Dragon.
