Give us a reason to fight patrols! Patrols can be just as challenging as monster and just as fun to fight. So why do they not give rewards? Most often than not groups will avoid fighting a patrol as to not risk a team wipe which is a shame because they add to an exciting gaming experience. I’d highly recommend that FS look into ways to promote these exciting fights.
I’d suggest a small rework to patrols. I don’t know much on game programing but as a layperson I’d think that these small reworks won’t take too much production time and can potentially add massive enjoyment to the player base.
Add one standard bearer to each patrol. Instead of him giving a boost to his group like the beastmen he calls a horde. Once standard bearer is killed he drops either loot dice OR drops similar to a bag Skaven. HP potions, one or two dice depending on RNG, ETC… The standard bearer is guaranteed to trigger at least 1 wave even if sniped.
