posticon Re: Simple Poll on the Death-blow - Which Way Do You Play It? (related to slain monster's wounds)


Hi all, I am acting as Necromancer today!

I just wanted to report that my loved one has been playing WHQ on Steam and she tells me there is a fourth option that is incredibly counter-intuitive and strange.

In the PC game, her berserking Barbarian (Marauder) had 3 Attacks. Attack #1 was on an Orc that had previously been wounded, but he was able to Deathblow anyway, so Attack 1 killed 2 Orcs before wounding Orc 3. Attack #2 killed Orc 3 but did grant a Deathblow! She had to use Attack #3 to fight the next Orc in line.

How's that for weird game design? The only rationale I can see is that a Warrior can smash through an opponent that a party member has wounded, but if he takes more than one hit to kill an enemy alone, his momentum is not great.

Three years later... I am finally replying to this comment! Yes, I noticed that too, BassJam! I like to play that game now and then, usually on my iPad. However, it is very brutal. I often lose high level Warriors to very wimpy spiders, poisonous spiders, and/or monster magic!

Sooo, 12 years since the initial poll/question was raised comes our Partys input emoticon

We grant a deathblow if you kill the monster with one blow. The monster can be wounded by other warriors, but not the warrior who is about to be granted the deathblow.

We "reset" this every turn (partly for convenience), meaning that eg. a warrior may have wounded a larger monster several times in previous turns, but can still gain a deathblow if the first wounds he causes in a turn, kills the monster.

Not complying completely with the "shared" poll option, but close enough i think emoticon
