Which Home World Should You Choose in Warhammer 40K Darktide?

A very personal choice.

Warhammer fans often know a truly stunning amount of lore about their favorite army. The franchise has enough backstory to fill a few thousand encyclopedias. Character building might be very important to some players when playing a game like Warhammer 40K Darktide. From classes to the weapons that best fit them, every character is unique. However, if you don't know anything about the lore, you might not get much out of some choices.

Choosing a Home World in Warhammer 40k Darktide

The most important thing to understand about Home Worlds is that the choice does not affect gameplay. You can pick any of the eight planets, and your gameplay experience will be identical. Choosing a Home World only has two main effects. It changes some small lines of dialogue and locks off one visual customization option. With that in mind, you will suffer no penalty for making any particular choice.

There are eight worlds to choose from, they are:

  • Crucis: A shrine world devoted to the worship of the Imperial Cult.
  • Messelina Gloriana: A forest planet with few resources and fewer residents.
  • Rocyria: A tiny rural farming planet often mocked for being backward.
  • Branx Magna: A titan of industry with a massive population and many factories.
  • Incron: A planet covered almost entirely by water.
  • Cadia: A once-great fortress that is now space dust. Only characters from this planet can have pink or purple eyes.
  • Mornax: A mining planet that is renowned for its nightmarish conditions.
  • Pavane: Probably the nicest planet, a beautiful newly colonized bounty of resources.

Choose whichever planet you'd like to imagine your character being from. The effect on dialogue is minimal. If you'd like your character to have pink or purple eyes, you'll have to choose Cadia. Other than that, any option is equally valid.
