You will play as the goblin infused strength focused Orc, the technologically advanced economical Human, the hyper-aggressive soul thirsty Lost, or the adaptive magic crazed Naga. Included are highly customized tech trees for each race, new heroes, units, abilities, spells, upgrades, integrated sea units, specialized terrain, and support features.

There are some major updates to Lost and Human units here. Moving forward I would like as much feedback as possible on unit balance.

Lost:

-Essence now provides a 10% life steal when off blight. This is a further incentive to be

-Reprisal now a starting ability and deals 25% of melee attack damage back to the enemy (can be upgraded to 33%), Terror must be researched

Lost:

-Stygian Bastille references Desecrator instead of Leech
-Noxium cast range adjusted (It was set too low and interfered with casting)
