Total War: ROME II – Beasts of War

Marshall your savagery, and strike primal fear into the hearts of your enemies with the Beasts of War unit pack for ROME II. Comprising seven new battlefield units, Beasts of War brings further variety to ROME II’s already diverse unit roster.
Terrorise your enemies and slow their progress with beehive, scorpion and snake-pot ballistas, or crush them under the weight of heavily-armoured Cataphract Camels and Mercenary Syrian Armoured Elephants. And when their will is broken and they flee the field, run them down with two new breeds of ferocious war-dogs.
Beasts of War brings introduces the following recruitable units to ROME II:

• Molossian Dogs
Can be recruited by: Epirus
A heavily muscled beast from western Greece, the now-extinct Molossian is considered to be the predecessor of many of today’s larger breeds, such as the Rottweiler and Great Dane. Used as both a guard dog and in battle, Virgil remarked “never, with them on guard, need you fear for your stalls a midnight thief, or onslaught of wolves, or Iberian brigands at your back.” These vicious dogs do not tire easily, and never lose the scent of an enemy.

• Beehive Onager
Can be recruited by: Athens, Epirus, Macedon, Sparta, and Syracuse
Whilst large-scale beekeeping for agricultural purposes was a later innovation, the humble honeybee nevertheless held an important place in ancient Greek culture. A trio of mythical nymphs, the Thriae or ‘bee maidens’, were loved by Apollo and Poseidon, bearing their children. Bees also have a practical application in battle, as a swarm of angry bees will always cause troops to stall and panic.

• Scorpion Pot Ballista
Can be recruited by: Pontus, Parthia
Home to the most lethal scorpions in the known world, whose sting can paralyse and kill a man within an hour, it was only a matter of time before a wily Middle Eastern general used them against his enemies. Spare a thought, then, for the Roman emperor Severus; whilst besieging the Parthian city of Hatra, his army was showered with pots of scorpions from atop the city walls. Like Trajan before him, Severus failed to breach the defences, even after two attempts.

• Snake Pot Ballista
Can be recruited by: Carthage
Perhaps the most famous use of potted animals was Hannibal Barca’s tactic against the fleets of Eumenes II of Pergamon. Hurling large clay pots full of venomous snakes onto the decks of Eumenes’ ships; he panicked the enemy fleet and won the day. Any unit struck by writhing, venomous snakes will pause to consider the wisdom of marching onwards!

• Camel Cataphracts
Can be recruited by: Parthia
The Roman general Macrinus was not noted for his experience, although had another fought the Battle of Nisbis in 217 AD, it’s hard to imagine he’d be any less stunned by the Parthian cataphract camels fielded that day. Wearing coats of tough, yet flexible, scale-mail, they made an awesome and terrifying sight as they punched through the frontlines and spooked the Roman horses with their camels’ earthy stench.

• Celtic Warhounds
Can be recruited by: Iceni, Cantiaci, Caledones, Demetae, Dunmonii, Brigantes, and Ebdani
Dogs have always been useful for guard, patrol and scout work. With skilled handlers they can also be used effectively on the battlefield. Attack dogs were specifically bred and trained to ignore the noise and chaos of combat. The Celtic tribes of the late Iron Age put them to great use. Their speed and ferocity made them ideal shock-troops, and perfect for running down fleeing stragglers.

• Mercenary Syrian Armoured Elephants
Can be hired as mercenaries in: Dura, Antioch, Tyros, and Palmeira
Indian elephants first came to the Middle East when Seleucus, one of Alexander the Great’s Successors, invaded India in 305 BC. 500 war elephants were handed over as part of the peace treaty between the Seleucid dynasty and the Mauryans of India, and the Seleucids went on to breed many more from this initial stock. War elephants remained an important part of the Seleucid army until their defeat by the Romans at Magnesia in 190 BC, following which they were forbidden from breeding more.

• Wolf Warriors
In the Germanic world, the cult of Wodenaz was so large that people of the age often had wolf-related names, such as Vulfolaic ("Wolf-dancer"), Wolfhetan ("Wolf-hide"), and Wolfdregil ("Wolf-runner"). Wolfgang, or "Wolf-gait", has remained a popular German name to this day. The Wolf Warriors, available to the Suebi and as mercenaries for holders of any province in Germania, drape themselves in wolf-hides and fight with the spirit of Wodenaz.

• Sobek Cultists
Defender of the Nile and protector of Pharaoh's power, Sobek was the crocodile-headed god of ancient Egypt from the Old Kingdom period through to the Ptolemaic dynasty and beyond. As such, crocodiles were venerated for their violent, primal qualities, and were even bred on temple sites as a living personifications of the god, and mummified when they died. With titles such as "One who buries the bodies of the crocodile-gods of the Land of the Lake" and "prophet of the crocodile-gods", the priests of the cult of Sobek served him completely in the main temple at Shedet in defence of the Pharaoh and his subjects. Clad in the hides of the sacred crocodile, the Sobek Cultists are available to recruit for Egypt.

• Mercenary Leopard Warriors
Being Egypt’s neighbour, Nubia also became, at times, its greatest enemy, and the population were often enslaved and used as soldiers. In 750BC Nubians even managed to conquer Egypt, and ruled for one hundred years, such was the deep rivalry that existed between the two. Consisting mainly of mercenaries from its various regions, the armies of Nubia were famed for their aggression and fearlessness on the battlefield. The Leopard Warriors are no exception: clad in the skins of swift and deadly leopards, they are a force to be reckoned with. Available to recruit as mercenaries when holding Egypt in the Grand Campaign.

I like this DLC as much as all the other ones, if it is on sale. For I got for less than a dollar and got some pretty cool things. I like these DLCs' (if on sale) because they broaden my horizon; for I usually play with whom I'm familiar with I tried and tested a few and came around to the Seleucids and fell in love with their unit roster. But alas, I now only play as the Seleucids; although I played 40 rounds as Carthage. So stop complaing about dlc, if you don't want to buy it, just get mods!

contains cataphract camels which were shown in the pre-release trailers. of course this put CA in a bad light.
If you are looking for Rome 2 wait for a next -75% discount sale then they are good gimmicks for the price.

*short pre-story: That DLC contains some units, which we were able to see in pre-release trailers and gameplay videos from the СА(developer), before ROME II release in september
-
actually, that story with those units harmed my trust to CA much more, than a buggy launch of Rome 2. Much more. I'm very tolerated to pc games with bugs, and can forgive buggy launch version of Rome2 easily, cuz ♥♥♥♥ happens you know. But this story with Beasts of War dlc - NO. CA were caught(so fail) on cutting content from release version. They lied. Their crаp about separate team on dlc's, separate budgets etc etc is bull sh*t now.

Beasts of War is composed of absurdities and things that should have been in at release. Molossian Dogs, Celtic Warhounds and Wolf Warriors were necessary units to flesh out their respectively underwhelming rosters. Epirus was a paid-for-faction, that required more paid-for-content. Camel Cataphracts were seen pre-release, their existence was denied by CA, then they had to apologize for lying. Another unit that should have been at-release.

The Onagers and Ballista are pointless gimmicks that do not DO anything and should just have been added as ammo types, not as useless units. The artillery types weren’t even implemented correctly, with many Greek/Hellenic factions not getting the Beehive Onagers, Armenia doesn’t have the Scorpion Pot Ballista (but Pontus and Parthia do) and even though the use of the snakes is attributed to a war between Bithynia and Pergamon, neither of those factions get the Snake Pot Ballista.

Sobek Cultists, Wolf Warriors and Mercenary Leopard Warriors are examples of what this pack SHOULD have been made of, units that were a little out there, but added to the rosters in a respectful way. The Leopard Warriors should have also been included into the Aethiopian factions’ regular roster.

Just an edit: Sobek Cultists, Mercenary Leopard Warriors and Wolf Warriors were added after the actual release of the game. That they needed to add content to paid content is absurd.

I have to agree this is not worth $3.

I purchased in a bundle so I might have paid 1/4 that, but as noted by other posters, it is content that was not necessary or that should already have been in.

Beehive onager:Seems useless
Snake Ballista:It kills,But it's not effective.

Pros:
Wolf Warriors. (I detect a bit of RSII from Rome I days)...
Elephants and camels (always a good addition to a Total War game.
Dogs, Love them or hate them, its always nice to have a cute and cutely dog gnawing on your arm.

Cons:
Those camels as DLC? It is more Cut content.
Beehive/snake pot/scorpion pot. poorly coded (just watch as one explodes, its as if it "burns".....) poorly designed (why would I buy a Beehive onager when I can have a normal one?, should have been added as an option to the normal onager... but then what point would this DLC have.

Overall:
Not worth £1.99, but If you want a few cool units... then this is your pack, especially when it is reduced to £0.49p

Decent.

Cataphract camels are a tough unit, but for cavalry I prefer higher speed. I don't particularly like playing as the Parthia faction as I like having a lot of variety in my armies, and they are a mostly cavalry based faction. ~

Molossian dogs are of an excellent strength. I like using them, but I hate paying for them as they are VERY expensive. I wish you could get them as an auxiliary unit instead of the lame auxiliaries you get from Illyria, HINT HINT CA. +1

Syrian armoured elephants are an awesome unit. Again, really expensive, but the cost is justified in this case. Also, again with the auxiliary availability...Auxiliary units of 9 african elephants are not very satisfactory after you squash a few crowds of your enemies' most powerful units with units of 18 Syrian armoured elephants. +1

Scorpion pot ballista/beehive onager/snakepot ballista are mostly useless. Kill counts are very low, though they do reduce the morale of the targeted units. Disappointing. These could have been done better. -1

Celtic warhounds were a much needed adition to the Iceni roster. I like dog units in general, so +1

Wolf warrior units for Suebi are excellent. It allows a more powerful club unit which is available before the sword units, and provides a bit of much needed variety to the Suebi roster. It's also nice that they are available as merc units. +1

Leopard warriors are an all around good spear unit, effective against all except swords and higher armoured spears. Also added much needed variety to the Egyptian region. +1

Sobek cultists are a decent unit as well, and they add some much needed variety to the Egyptian roster as well. +1

dlc cost +1

dlc content could be improved ~
