The Otomo Clan Pack adds a new playable faction to Total War: SHOGUN 2 for use in single or multiplayer Campaign modes and Custom and Multiplayer Battles.
Having forged an early alliance with Portuguese traders, The Otomo Clan reaps great economic and military benefits from its wealthy, gun-toting ally and in doing so, the clan has allowed Catholicism to flourish among the people of its domain.
Clan Trait: Master Gunners
Can recruit cheaper gunpowder units (-10%)
Missionary actions are cheaper (-15%)
Improved conversion to clan religion (+2)
Faster import of Matchlock Ashigaru units (-3)
Portugese Tercos (Foot, Ranged, Melee)
Armed with matchlock rifles and swords, clad in iron breastplates and Spanish Morion helmets, the Tercos can lay down withering hails of fire, and give a solid performance in melee.
Otomo Donderbuss Cavalry (Mounted, Ranged)
Mounted troops armed with the fearsome, fluted Donderbuss rifle – the forerunner of the modern shotgun. These ranged units can be swiftly positioned to gouge at an enemy’s flanks, or punch the wind out of his cavalry charges before they even arrive.
Otomo Matchlock Ashigaru (Foot, Ranged)
Armed with matchlock arquebuses to unleash massed volleys of long-range gunfire upon the enemy, these units fight with religious fervour, which increases the accuracy of their fire and enables them to reload at a faster rate than standard Matchlock Ashigaru.
Otomo Matchlock Samurai (Foot, Ranged, Melee)
With their accurate volleys of rifle-fire, Otomo Matchlock Samurai are ideal at weakening enemy units before a charge. Benefitting from their Samurai training, they fire with greater accuracy and reload more swiftly than their Ashigaru brethren.
Otomo Matchlock Kobaya (Naval, Ranged)
A very light and fast ship carrying a small detachment of musket-armed soldiers whose Christian fervour and familiarity with matchlocks enables them to shoot more accurately and reload at a faster rate than standard Matchclock-bearing Kobaya.
One building slot per city can be handed over to Portuguese control for them to do with as they wish. In return, the clan gains a large amount of money, enabling it to ramp up its war efforts at pace.
A new subchain of Jesuit buildings (Hospital - Jesuit Seminary - Jesuit College) replaces the Chapel building subchain (Mission - Church - Cathedral)
Each building will progressively aid the conversion of the Japanese to Christianity, increase unit replenishment, economic growth and the happiness of the Christian populace. They will also progressively improve the rate at which the arts are mastered and allow a besieged army in the same castle town to hold out for longer.
Total War: Shogun 2 - Otomo clan pack DLC is in my opinion no doubt the best clan pack made for this game. Otomo was one of the major clans in the lands of Kyoshu and they were the first to make contact with the Europeans. They were regularly trading with the Portuguese and eventually converting to the Christian faith. The Otomo have 4 new unique land units and one new naval unit. They can also build new buildings such as Leased land, Hospital, Jesuit Seminary, Jesuit College and more. Their traits are also something special - they are described as Master Gunners and can recruit cheaper gunpowder units and missionaries that spread Christianity. They also get a conversion bonus to clan religion and faster import of Matchlock Ashigaru units.
A new shogun 2 faction, finally. Now you start with a christian clan, which is of course interesting. Your clan starts off with 2 provinces and the ability to recruit Matchlock Ashigaru units. They also have the opportunity to recruit several clan exclusive units like Portugese Tercos. This DLC adds a lot of fun, but it may be a little expensive (since you probably only play this faction for one campaign).
Now this right here, along with the Ikko Ikki, is how factions in Shogun 2 should have been handled to begin with. A bit different playsyle, unique units, unique buildings; aka some faction identity. Just the stuff you need for your campaigns to break out of monotonity. Doesn't matter if you're a fan who's still playing Shogun 2 or someone who is just getting into it, you won't go wrong with getting this pack.
Finally Total War: Shogun 2 gets a new faction, this time the Japanese Otomo clan will join forces with Porturgal, giving them a lot of firepower and new economic options to excel over the other factions. The Otomo Clan now has the Portugese Tercos which is one of the most dangerous units in ranged combat and the Matchlock Samurai, which can combine his samurai skills with a light rifle if the enemy is too far, also for Naval Combat the DLC includes the Matchlock Kobaya, I think this ship fast but not enough powerful like others This DLC includes great and powerful units for the game and if you want to expand Shogun 2, It is worth it.
