Who are the Isharann?

The Idoneth Deepkin are coming – but who are these mysterious reavers? Join us as we dive into the lore of this sinister new faction…

The Isharann are one of the higher castes of the Idoneth Deepkin, trading the martial might of the Akhelians for more unusual powers, from magical spells to powerful prayers. Isharann are drawn from those Idoneth Deepkin born with full souls, and thus they live as long as their distant kin. This allows them to fully dedicate their lives to learning and scholarship of the mystical arts.

Like all aelves, the Idoneth Deepkin are highly attuned to magic. Where other mages draw their power from the elemental energy of the realms or their patrons, the Isharann of the Idoneth Deepkin are masters of a more malevolent magic, using the crushing, abyssal power of the seas and possessing a sinister form of telepathy.

Isharann are the most unusual Idoneth Deepkin units, working mainly to support and enhance the rest of your forces – whether through magical spells, tactical acumen or the power of prayer. With Namarti making up the bulk of your army and the Akhelians providing deadly offensive units, your choice of Isharann will open up new tactical possibilities or allow for all manner of sneaky tricks.

Lotann, Warden of the Soul Ledgers, for example, allows you to shore up a Namarti line with Catalogue of Souls:

With this ability, you’ll be able to lose fewer models to battleshock and hit the enemy with greater accuracy on the offensive.

If you’re grabbing an Eidolon of Mathlann this weekend, you’ll find Isharann characters particularly handy, as the latter are able to cast powerful rituals to bolster the already potent abilities of these maritime manifestations.

You’ll be able to pre-order Lotann, Warden of the Soul Ledgers this weekend, while there’s plenty more Isharann on their way in the coming weeks – so stay tuned… In the meantime, if you missed yesterday’s preview of the Akhelians, you can read it here.
