I'm 90% sure on this, but I want to check that when using the Great Orc "all terrain is favorable when attacking" ability, only Great Orcs (and other troop types that treat the defender's terrain as favorable) count when determining terrain advantage. Thanks!

Yes. And I'm 90% sure you know this but Great Orcs have no favored terrain when defending.

All attacking Great Orc's plus any other attacking unit's terrain type vs Defenders terrain type.

The only reason I ask is that the ability was worded something like "when Great Orcs are attacking, all terrain is treated as favorable" instead of
"Great Orcs treat all terrain as favorable when they are attacking." Given the wording on the card, it was just possible that all the units in the army got to treat the defender's terrain as favorable as long as one Great Orc was attacking.
