Ghoul is random, Katakan chooses. That is why it is far, far better.Esclive;n7731120 said:How is it possible that the Katakan is the same as the Ghoul but with 2 more points but it's a silver card? Why would CDPR kill this card? Was it too strong? What's its utility now? Who would sacrifice a silver card for a stronger Ghoul?

Could you send me a screenshot of the ENGLISH card description of the Katakan? Because I have my game in french and it's specified that it's random (aléatoire). Maybe it's a mistake from the translator.TriforceDragon;n7731250 said:Ghoul is random, Katakan chooses.
As I said above, I created this thread because in the french version of the game, there's the word "random" mentioned in the card. Sorry, I didn't have the good informations. :/ But could you send me the english version of the card so I can inform the devs about that?4RM3D;n7732300 said:As others have pointed out, the fact you can choose a unit from BOTH graveyards is very strong.
So that's mean you can choose which graveyard to target but not which card? The description is really misleading then beacause it literaly says "Bannish a random unit (gold card excluded) from one graveyard or the other and absorb his strenght".TheShift;n7732530 said:It's randomness comes from either graveyard
ummm, as far as i can tell so far from playing the new Katakan, there is no randomness involved. When you play it, it shows ALL eligible creatures from BOTH graveyards. You choose what creature to consume.TheShift;n7732730 said:Agreed...
it randomly chooses the graveyard,you get to pick any card
Based on lore? I would love to know what Lore are you referring to. To my knowledge we know basically nothing about Vrans. Mainly because Sapkowski simply came up with them as some lizard humanoid race for one single story and then never mentioned them again. So anything we may know about them is from Witcher games (still isnt much) and is purely from imagination of CDPR and so anything they say in this matter shall be lore .
Talking about lore purity. How about Caretaker? Last time I checked he was caretaker not carpenter, so how exactly is he "resurrecting" boats and siege weapons?
