You can also get one of the best weapons in game, Slaanesh's Blade, at the final circle! Unlike Khorne weapons, you can keep it forever!

Other Information
  • It does not matter which portal you use at the same level. The reward combination is randomly selected.
  • The items awarded, except for purple unique items, are random.
  • Save scumming on the same turn will not change the reward. To reroll the rewards you need to reload a save at the previous turn; only after a turn end will the rewards change. Or you can reload a current-turn save and end turn without going through the portal; going through the portal next turn will reroll the rewards.
    • Game update 1.1
      changed how rewards are decided in Slannesh realm.
      You can no longer refresh for a new reward using save scum or passing turns.
      The reward is set the first time you enter the chaos realm, and will not change unless you take the reward for the specific circle and come back during another wave of rifts.
  • There are two different lore texts for each circle's choice; they are randomly selected.
  • There are multiple versions of turn-based buffs for some circles, even though the buffs may have the exact same names. For example, The Circle of Gluttony buff have two versions; one with 200% replenishment rate and one with 100% replenishment rate.
  • !!!ATTENTION!!!
    There is a game breaking bug that if you take a Slaneesh reward by entering the Slaneesh Realm after you claimed 4 souls and before you defeat Belakor, you will lose the option to teleport to the Forge of Souls from any rifts, thus losing the campaign(letting Belakor become god after 40 turns).

I understand now! I totally agree with you. Since 1.1, the race is much less stressful than before because of the reset mechanic, thus taking the Slaneesh rewards is not punishing anymore.
Kerrberos May 22 @ 5:14pm 
Xhal is right, I meant that since 1.1 the rewards are way better, as you aren't risking failure of your campaign by taking them and setting yourself back in the race anymore.

1.2 didn't change anything to the realm of chaos, they fixed some bugs with it, all the 1.2 changes are to the factions themselves.

As far as we know from legendoftotalwar's 1.2 video, he spoke to CA and there are apparently no plans to do anything else with the realm of chaos campaign, they didn't say it outright but it does seem they are writing this campaign off as a failure and not spending any more time on it.

All their efforts are now focused on the immortal empires campaign to make it the best possible and to release it on time.

As for the realms of slaanesh rewards there is now a mod for it : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2791496317

I know about interception at the Forge of Souls from 1.1, but I don't see the connection between that and Slaneesh realm rewards though. Kerrberos was saying that "the Slaneesh rewards [are] too good, almost mandatory to take [because of] the fact that you can now reset enemy progress on the race." So I thought maybe he was talking about something else new in 1.2
Xhal May 19 @ 5:33pm 
That was from 1.1, now when you intercept someone at the forge of souls they lose all their souls.

@Kerrberos I haven't played patch 1.2. Is there something new about resetting AI race progress? I probably missed it since I didn't see anything about it in the patch note.
Kerrberos May 16 @ 11:03am 
The fact that you can now reset enemy progress on the race made the slaneesh rewards too good, almost mandatory to take. Making it so you can't save scum them was a good compromise IMO.
kw142 (Lie in Mid-July)  [author] Apr 17 @ 3:36pm 
I agree; it was definitely better before 1.1
Xhal Apr 17 @ 7:26am 
The issue is that when you take the Slaanesh rewards you cannot re-enter another realm in the same rift cycle, so you are forced to extend the campaign.

Getting the sword and the movement range and + 200% exp ancillary was worth it for playing an additional 30 turns but getting a temporary buff just isn't.

I don't think CA understands how their own games work, what's valuable and what isn't.

Now they have a feature that they spent time developing that no one in their right mind is gonna use. Which makes it a bad feature.

Unless if you are ok with all the options for a specific circle; I know sometimes I wanted the extra replenishment from the Circle of Gluttony to expand to high attrition territories, and I am ok with all possible reward combination from that circle since the bonus replenishment rates are so high that the difference does not matter that match.

If you want to force specific rewards at each circle, you can find workshop items/mods that do that. I haven't tried them myself but a lot of people have used them. Just search for "Slannesh Realm" in steam workshop, and you will find some.
