Total War: Warhammer 2 released an update dubbed The King’s Shilling. While this beta patch is rather small, it manages to address some high-priority issues. The update also makes changes and improvements to the Legendary Lord.

Talking about the high-priority issues, these are the four that have been resolved:

  • Vampire Coast factions are able to raise dead at sea again.
  • Fixed an issue which limited the number of mods a player could have.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented AI factions from recruiting more than one army.
  • Fixed an issue where active ability phase-stat effects were included in the unit stat calculation when gaining an experience level in battle, resulting in units having their new base stats set at incorrect values.

There are other issues still being looked into and once a fix is available, they'll be included in future patches.
