[1]. Version Info                                                     [VERSION]
===============================================================================

******** Version 0.0 ********
->  10 January 2007  - Started the FAQ. Only few  can be  seen here   because I
was only placing everything randomly and writing skeleton FAQ atm.

******** Version 1.0 ********
->  17 January 2007 - Completed the FAQ. Most  of the sections   (99.9%)   were
completed. But I'll add some more  information   (and make corrections also :P)
in few days, just wait. I've planned to make  everything  in  order as soon  as
possible. FAQ Size: 196 Kb.

******** Version 1.01 ********
->  19 February 2007 - Repaired  those nasty  Undead Army  and  claimed  Frozen
Throne as mine... naaa... joking :) heheh. Fixed  lotta  mistakes at the latest
release and here's the latest document.....I'm  now  currently  fixing few more
aligning and justifying stuffs... Hopefully the next  release  can  cover those
troubles/ problems. Here's a brief summary about those fixes:

    - Fixed wrong 'Index' title.
    - Fixed mispelled words and grammar (tons of 'em!).
    - Fixed the release date.
    - Fixed the statistics since new version comes up.
    - Fixed an info on Priestess of the Moon's Threats and Preys section.
    - Fixed those annoying trailing spaces.........
    - Completed few incomplete 'Compatibility' sections.
    - Added new parts to 'Introduction'.
    - Added new questions and answers on 'FAQ' section.
    - Added few new credits to those who have contributed to this FAQ by either
      reporting typos and errors.
    - New Instant Messenger rule, be sure to read it.
    - Adjusted the 80-characters long per line so they fit and seen better.
    - Bunch of small fixes......

Whoa,   did  I  say  'brief summary'?   Looks  like I  was  wrong xD, blame  my
fingers because  they   keep doing  mistakes   over  and over again. Just don't
go  stalking  me  please. Oh, and this   FAQ now is  over 200KB long  and  will
be larger in the next release, trust me :P for I'm this FAQ creator.

Well, quite a  big update so it  takes   rather a long   time for this release,
because   I don't   want to release something which isn't arranged properly :).
Thank you for your  patience  and   contributions. I   really  hope  you  enjoy
reading   this  release  AND this release is for  you, my  readers! ^-^ I  know
this  release   was  longer   than   expected  because I have  to   fix a large
amount of mistakes.  However,  I (still) can't fix    some   of minor  mistakes
because this goddamn  FAQ   is huge,   if   you  find  one, please let me know.
And.... consider this release as a Chinese New Year gift from me.

NOTE  for   this  release: Currently  the  newest patch  is no longer 1.20e but
I'm still using  it until the   stable  version  comes up  (1.21   doesn't seem
too  stable   for  me..),  usually  it  takes  few   months  until  the   patch
life cycle becomes stable again and until that, please wait. FAQ Size: 216 Kb.

******** Version 1.02 ********
->  21 May   2007 - 1.21, 1.21, 1.21, 1.21..... Yea I downloaded this patch and
so I need to update this FAQ. Well so what do you think I would do?  Of course,
open Outlook, download the messages from my mailbox while listen to music......
Bah!

Several readers, especially Lee,  have generous enough by sending very valuable
contributions to me. You  can  see  lots  of  additions  for this  FAQ on  this
version, all of them couldn't  be achieved when I'm  working  alone. So, thanks
alot. Lee also mentioned about Panda  on his email which makes me interested on
writing Panda FAQ, seeing Dark Ranger also has her own FAQ at GF. :) Let's  see
whether I DO have time to do that.....or not. Keep  in  mind  that this FAQ has
been heavily tampered  because of those contributions and I might have created,
unknowingly,    new  mistakes. Be sure to read the  'FAQ'  section,  especially
Question 19. I've added quite an additions there to answer  some  questions and
surely  they need to be heavily fixed,  however, I've tried my best to write my
knowledge down for this area.

Several another readers even sent me an emails written  with  foreign languages
that I didn't  even  know  which continents they were come from..... NEXT TIME,
read  the rules, folks. I'm not that GENIUS!!!!! Here's  a  brief summary about
those fixes (again...  Why am I so retard?):

    - Added FAQ Completion Progress Chart.
    - Fixed very stupid mistake at Demon Hunter vs Dreadlord.
    - Fixed the statistics (since new version comes up).
    - Several few fixes on Warden's section.
    - Fixes and addititions on KotG's skills comments.
    - Removed that bloody annoying 'Mana Potions' typo on PotM's section.
    - Updates for Glossary section.
    - Updates for 'Useful Items' on every heroes section.
    - Reworked Vs. heroes section quite a lot. :P
    - Bunch of small fixes...... heheheh.

[2]. Introduction                                                       [INTRO]
===============================================================================

Well, five years ago, I was looking for  a good  strategy (online)  game to  be
played. I asked my fiance ,he was my boyfriend back at 2002,  and  he suggested
me to play Warcraft 3. 'What the hell is Warcraft?' was  my  first question and
shortly after that, he picked his Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos CD and showed it to
me. I thought I might as  well  give  it  a  try  so I 'borrowed'  his  CD  and
installed it to my PC. After few hours  playing, I found out that this game was
so different than any other games (real-time strategy) I  ever played. Hehe, so
I decided to keep my attention to Warcraft for a while  and has been bugging my
time since then. Few months after that,  The Frozen Throne  was  released and I
immediately stole my  fiance's  CD  right   after he bought the game -_-; sorry
chinyan.....and I had those two CDs on my possesion until he bought Battlechest
year ago and gave it as my birthday gift. I was  so  happy and returned his two
old CDs back ^^;;

Since the first time I played this game, Night Elf has always been my favourite
for they're simple, fast and efficient. Not to mention  they're  also  ruthless
and gearless lol. I played Warden as soon as I got  Frozen Throne and loved her
way of fighting at the first sight. I took  a  look  at  GameFAQs  FAQs & Guide
Section to check out whether I  could  find a decent FAQ  regarding  Night  Elf
Heroes and couldn't find any... Heh, what a mess. I found  TWO Night  Elf  FAQs
but they do no cover 'Heroes' section completely  and I  guess  they only cover
Night Elf  generally, ah  well.. So  I  attempted  Night  Elf  Heroes  FAQ  and
seemingly it's been proven successful based on how many emails I  got since its
first  release  at  GameFAQs. Hohohoho, now  enough  chitchating, I'll  end  up
banned....errr no I mean, I'll end up boring you  if I keep  doing so ^^;; Just
to let you know, if I were  asked how proficient  I  am when using NE, I'd give
myself 6.5. Don't ask  my scores for another races  because I'd only give  them
around 2-3 :P as I'm not experienced enough.

This is  the biggest in-depth FAQ I  have ever  written, so  you might see lots
of mistakes despite the fact that they weren't intentionally made :) Although I
intensively play this game, with NE of course, every day, I still feel I am not
the 'master' of NE, so critics as well as suggestions are  welcome, don't argue
with my personal opinion  please, it's not  yours, it's  mine. It's just from a
view of one person , and just  give your  thanks to this FAQ author because you
read her FAQ which probably  help  you  out  of your  misery.... :P For the FAQ
organization, I'll split  the FAQ into FIVE main parts to exert its usefulness,
the first four will cover each Night Elf's heroes and the last will serve as an
addition. Personally I'll _never_  add a  new portion  except a new strategy or
update  for the first four parts,  but for  the  last part there will be always
new portion as the game evolves via patch updates.

As a side note, I adapted new style for  this  FAQ per 1.02 version which makes
me  easier  to  manage  contributions by placing them directly on my FAQ with a
note saying  that  this is  contributed by  another people, that's  if you send
me suggestions/ additions not error corrections for grammar :).  Hope this will
not cause trouble on my FAQ's organizations. This done because I don't know how
the  hell  I  should  merge  those  emails to  this FAQ, without ruining my own
work. Basically, if you send me a correction regarding grammar and/or typo, I'd
place  you  on my 'Thanks' list only BUT if you do send me bunch of suggestions
or additions  like one of my readers ;)  , I'd place  them accordingly on their
correct position on this FAQ.

See 'About' section  for  further details. Oh, I do not cover the single-player
guide here, there are more FAQS  floating  around on GameFAQs, which discuss it
thoroughly! Also, I'll update this guide OFTEN, as soon as I collect enough new
info  about  Night Elf heroes. In this FAQ I  also have passed some information
....erh... no complete information about encountering ANOTHER hero than  you're
currently  using  so  it might  be  your  interest  right now. I also  included
specific strategies for each NE heroes  in  each maps but  it's still  not  yet
perfect. For the complete NE buildings  & units explanations please see another
FAQs  and  please  aware  that  this  FAQ is  originally intended to be used in
conjunction  with  PC version, but MAC version has no difference so you may use
it as well.

For this FAQ I won't use fancy ASCII art throughout the FAQ because I find it's
annoying and I'll try to keep this FAQ spoiler-free. For more information about
abbreviations please check 'Glossary' section  first and  one last note, if you
see the ASCII title is  gibberish, use metapad  instead  notepad. I  don't know
why is it thus, perhaps it's an friggin' bug of notepad? :P

NOTE:
- There'll be NO Final Version, as I'll  constantly  adding many info, tweaking
  my FAQs, and updating if necessary!
- SEND your contributions via email ONLY. See 'About' for detailed information,
  if you send contributions I'll give you a proper credit, as usual.

===============================================================================

These below are important checklists and must be read and  prepared  before you
read this FAQ:

- This is _NOT_ walkthrough, and I don't have time to tell you how  to  play or
  install this game. Please take a look at GameFAQs' FAQs & Guides  section  to
  get a walkthrough, for there are couples of nice walkthroughs that  have been
  posted, use  them  as your reference first. interestingly, there are also few
  in-depth  facts  regarding Night Elf  but  since they cover only Night Elf in
  general, I  decided  to add  another  Night  Elf FAQ that handles heroes area
  only. You could, however, use this FAQ in conjunction with them. All of those
  FAQs can be found at www.gamefaqs.com.

- YOU must play this game before, LOOK at this FAQ....it does not provide basic
  stuff and silly introduction. DON'T expect me to guide you  personally.....no
  spoonfeeding here :P  So  at  least  you  are  able  to perform basic control
   casting spells, moving  your  units etc,  and  have  some  knowledge of this
  game's terminology, but for your convenience I've provided 'Glossary'section.

- I divided this FAQ into several sections for your convenience, the first part
  is obviously about NE heroes  and their strats/ tactics. Second part is about
  Compatibility  Charts, which  may  be  proven  useful   at   some  situations
  especially  when  you haven't  even  play as NE race. And  the  last   is the
  Frequently Asked  Question, which I   placed far behind. You can navigate the
  FAQ easily with QuickFind system.

- You must have 1.21  patch installed in your game. Fail  to do  so will result
  in incompatible information from this FAQ and your game due to balance fixes.
  As far as I know the latest patch which fixes the balance issue is 1.19b, but
  applying 1.21  patch won't hurt you. Just download it via auto-patch  feature
  in game or manually download it from http://ftp.blizzard.com.

- For specific map strategies, I'm using original and  default maps  which  are
  packed together in the Warcraft III patch and  I  NEVER  alter  or edit those
  maps. So the info and strats here are based from original and unaltered maps,
  if you happen to edit  them  ,either via Blizzard's WE or WE Unlimited,  then
  the info or strats here  are no longer  valid  for you. In short: NEVER  edit
  those default maps unless you need that badly. Always  make  a backup copy of
  your original maps!

- Putting AMAI in a map is also considered as an editing process. What is AMAI?
  AMAI  stands  for Advanced Melee AI, it's main purpose is to make Warcraft AI
  stronger  for  training sake (in fact, the AI becomes MUCH stronger). You can
  find  further  information  for AMAI at www.wc3campaigns.com. AMAI is created
  and maintained with Perl so you might need Perl also from http://www.perl.com
  (AMAI source is  available  as  GPL). NOTE:  You may need JASS -Java Asserted
  Syntax- and Perl  programming  language  skill  to  understand them. I do not
  provide technical  information  for  JASS  and Perl  although I do understand
  several  parts  from  JASS  and Perl ,  however  you can get help for JASS at
  http://jass.sourceforge.com.  BUT, installing  AMAI   still    gives    these
  strategies valid, just a  bit  more effort and energy needed to beat them. :P
  I admit I had a nightmare some time ago when fighting against AMAI...........

  Thank you and have a fun read. I'll start the FAQ and  leave  everything  on
  your good hands, for I entrusted you with those Night Elf heroes' fate.......
  Beat the drum please!

*BOOOOOOOOOOOOOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!*

[6a]. Warden's Basics
---------------------

Warden possesses many unique abilities and also different play style. I fell in
love to  Warden  at  the first sight :P Yeah,  it's  true  that  she  also  has
bad...no...it's terrible weaknesses  but I  care  them not. Warden FTW! She has
the ability to deal with mass melee or mass air, as well as to hunt down single
unit. Her ultimate is also good to boost your forces firepower and very easy to
use. In fact, she's adept at dealing most of tactics due to her  skills. So you
shouldn't despise her, or you shall suffer!

Well, first let me explain the Warden's basic stuff ^_^

[6b]. Warden's Skills analysis + Skills Build
---------------------------------------------

Skills Analysis
---------------

Fan of Knives
-------------

Advantages and disadvantages:

+ Very good spell for   tier-1 units. It hurts  badly  for  low life units, ex:
Archer, Footman  etc. At level 3, Fan of Knives is deadly  for both  light land
units and air units. Has relatively quick cooldown, bring mana  potions to pull
this spell to its full potential.

+ AOE (Area of Effect) spell! You can hit multiple units.

+ There's  no  need  to  target  your enemy, you  can simply cast the spell and
forget it. :D

- Bad spell choice to catch those pesky runaway  units, too costly (in terms of
mana) and does not slow your foes.


Usages:
-------

- You  may use   FoK in  conjunction  with  Breath of  Fire and   Drunken  Haze
(Pandaren), Warden and Panda are good combination against  mass  low hit points
unit, ex: Mass Gargoyles or Mass Bats. Be sure  you also  check 'Compatibility'
section below.

- Nukes. Warden carries   with her the almighty Shadow  Strike. Nuking an enemy
hero (ex: Archmage) will be easy, just cast them both at single target.

- Cast this spell after you use Blink to enter the battlefield.


Blink
-----

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Cheap mana cost especially on lv 3 blink. So it's abusable.

+ Very fast cooldown for lv 3 blink.

+ No cast range.

- If this  spell is   not  mastered, it's rather useless. Warden relies heavily
on lv 3 Blink, so 'Master it!' or completely 'Forget it!'

- Does not have any effect against enemy units

Usages:
-------

- Use this spell to catch those runaway units, best matches with Shadow Strike.

- If you have lv 3 Blink, you can beat down several enemy units by chasing them
using this spell and cast FoK/ SS, later you can escape easily too.

- You can also use  this  to  escape  from  combat, especially  when  Warden is
severely damaged. This  also  causes your opponents' units  who  focus  fire on
Warden to be distracted and retarget another units.

- Backdoor! Since most common  build position  for Human, Undead, and Orc is to
protect  their  villagers  by  surrounding  their mines, you  can   bypass  the
obstacles by using this spell, attack, kill and escape.


Shadow Strike
-------------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Low mana cost when  compared  to FoK and Vengeance. This is her best spell to
deal with runaway units and heroes.

+ Has decent   poison  damage and  duration. Makes  this your  initial skill in
common situation.

+ High  damage  at level 3. You can strike tier-1 unit with this  spell and see
him/her health point down pretty quickly.

- Not AOE spell, and need target unlike FoK.

- Limited cast range. I mean pretty short cast range in fact.

Usages:
-------

- Cast  this  at  heroes. Mainly  intelligence  type  heroes, and   their  life
diminishing rapidly due to poison.

- Cast at  runaway unit, while after  that  Warden should hit the targeted unit
constantly to ensure he/she dies.

- This spell best  used as  a  finishing move. If you see  red-health bar unit,
cast this at him/her and most certainly he/she will die.


Vengeance
---------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Can summon another units, invulnerable ones from corpses! Also they (Spirits)
do decent damage as well. The spirits can be used for scouting too.

+ Immune to magic.

+ Can be used as a decoy.

- Dispellable.

- High mana cost.

- Slow cooldown.

Usages:
-------

- Please just cast this  spell  in BATTLE only. it's useless  when cast outside
battle.


Skills Build
------------

There are several options  building   your Warden's skills. You must choose the
right one in each  battle  depending on your enemy' starting hero or race. Fail
to do so will get you bad result. Usually  Warden can deal with ALL heroes type
and form ANY race except..... Demon Hunter. Please, do not and NEVER use Warden
against Demon Hunter!

1. Shadow Strike, Fan of Knives (Extreme nuke)
   This is the skill builds' order:
   - lv1 -> SS
   - lv2 -> FoK
   - lv3 -> SS
   - lv4 -> FoK
   - lv5 -> SS
   - lv6 -> Avatar
   - lv7 -> FoK
   - lv8 -> Blink
   - lv9 -> Blink
   - lv10-> Blink
   Description: SS should be mastered  first. You then  can deal with FoK, this
   will allow you to hunt down enemy hero and low level units.

2. Shadow Strike, Blink (Hero hunter)
   - lv1 -> SS
   - lv2 -> Blink
   - lv3 -> SS
   - lv4 -> Blink
   - lv5 -> SS
   - lv6 -> Blink
   - lv7 -> Avatar
   - lv8 -> FoK
   - lv9 -> FoK
   - lv10-> FoK
   Description: SS holds the most important  point here. Blink comes in second,
   you can take down several enemy units all by using single Warden. :D

3. Fan of Knives, Blink (AoE abuse)
   - lv1 -> FoK
   - lv2 -> Blink
   - lv3 -> FoK
   - lv4 -> Blink
   - lv5 -> FoK
   - lv6 -> Blink
   - lv7 -> Vengeance
   - lv8 -> SS
   - lv9 -> SS
   - lv10-> SS
   Description: Not as powerful as the two builds above, but  can be spammed to
   kill one or two weak  units (Sorceress or Ghouls). This build should be used
   mainly in battle.

You should choose Avatar at lv 6 / 7

Conclusion:
----------

Her skills are pretty  good, many  combinations can be  used  to find different
play style. But  still  that would  requires  practice and  patience for you to
master this hero. Most of her skills require correct time and event  to launch,
failing to do so will result in ineffective and useless Warden.

Let's take a brief look again at status table.

This is her stats at LEVEL 1:

+========+====================================================================+

Enough for tables and such thing, I'll explain the analysis now xD


Analysis:
---------

- (Str gain) 39-18= 21. 21 points  are  so gooood, especially  because Warden's
base strength is horrible. But this 21 points  alone is not  enough to help her
survive. You'll  also  need  potions  (either invis pot, invul  pot  or  health
potions).

- (Agi gain) 35-20= 15. 15 points are bad. Simply because  Warden is an agility
type hero. Because  of this. she is not able  to  deal   decent damage. Agility
also affects her armor, 9 armor for melee  fighter  is bad, you'll need another
ways to keep her alive.

- (Int gain) 33-15= 18. 18  points  are  good  enough, especially  because  she
relies heavily on her spells. But  for some  reasons, you'll  still  need mana-
related items to help her. Fan of Knives and Shadow Strike are  too  costly for
her to be cast repeatedly. But usually, after you hit lv  6 or above, you won't
need mana-items that badly.

- (Health) As you can see, she has barely 1075 health points at level 10,  very
different  when  compared  to  Demon Hunter  or  Blademaster. Demon Hunter  has
Metamorphosis  spell  that  allows  him  to gains  another 500 hit points while
Warden doesn't have such skill. Low hitpoints is very prone to nukes, I'll deal
with nukes later, this part is just for information.

- (Mana) She has quite adequate  amount  of Mana. But  it won't hurt to improve
this part by using potions or +stat point items.

- (Damage) Now as a melee fighter, she does not have decent  attack power. Yep,
her attack speed is decent (2.05) with  a pretty nice addition every  level she
gains. But it does not worth it, since  we  mainly are focused at hero's attack
power. I can  say, she  is the  weakest  agility hero in terms of attack power.
Even Priestess of the Moon can deals much....much damage by her Searing Arrows.
So if you happen to find claw of attacks, don't sell them!!

- (Armor) ....no female heroes have high armor  like her. But still,  her armor
aren't enough to keep her alive in  deadly combat. Avoid direct hits, nukes and
crippling spells. No item can  be  used to improve this stat (rings aren't that
good....sadly).


Conclusion:
----------

Her stats gain is pretty decent, but her  base  stats  are horrible.....so  you
should bring one or two equipments  for her. Granted, if you get her high level
and proper equipment, you can always get upper hand.


--------------------------
[6d]. Warden's Weak points
--------------------------

Here I have listed many Warden's weaknesses, please pay a heed or  your  Warden
will suffer... for 'she kills fast and killed fast', lol.

- She must not nuked. Do so will crush your Warden. Examples of 'nukes':
        *) Undead's Tri-Nuke: Frost Nova, Death Coil and Impale
           Description      : The best nuke in The Frozen Throne universe. Just
                              don't  let  her  accept  direct  hit  from  those
                              spells. Usually this can be solved by  Anti-Magic
                              Potion or Invulnerable pots.
        *) MK + Blood Mage  : War Stomp and Storm Bolt + Banish
           Description      : Avoid these spells! Just don't come  near MK  and
                              you should be fine. Do not use Invul pot, as long
                              as you keep your distance, it will be fine  since
                              MK is so slow and   have  low  mana points.  Just
                              watch out  for Banish which  improves  the damage
                              from spell attacks alot!
        *) Orc's Nuke (1)   : Chain Lightning and Shockwave
           Description      : If you take these two spells directly, guaranteed
                              that  your  Warden  will  have  her  life  points
                              reduced considerably. Use invis pot or Anti Magic
                              Potion will prevent this.
        *) Panda+Naga Sea   : Drunken Haze + Breath of Fire and Fork  Lightning
           Description      : Panda at high level is  a pain. His Drunken  Haze
                              can weaken your Warden, also  with his  Breath of
                              Fire enabled you  can  take  free damage quickly.
                              Oh, dished with  Fork  Lightning after that isn't
                              fun  thing  to do. So  better   use  Invulnerable
                              potion if you happen to meet this combo.


- She must not be focus-fired. Low H P and  Armor  make  her very vulnerable to
  this attack type.

- Don't let her being caught by  Net or Roots. This will  lead  to  Focus  Fire
  attack type and ultimately to nukes.

- Avoid  Curse  spell  (Banshee), that  will  weaken  her severely. Use  Dryad'
  Abolish Magic to dispel the effect.

- Silence might as well watched out. If you want  to Blink and at the same time
  you get silenced, you're doomed.

- Demon Hunter! His Mana Burn is annoying, besides he  is  much  much  stronger
  than Warden (physically). There is no way you can beat this  guy with Warden.
  If you see your opponent is using/training DH, switch your hero  immediately!

- Any hero with 'summon' skill (ex: Beastmaster or Far Seer) can  destroys low-
  level Warden, even if you are able  to kill the hero, your  Warden  would  be
  severely damaged.


----------------------------
[6e]. Warden's Strong points
----------------------------

She  does  not  have  weaknesses  only,  of  course. She also has  some  decent
advantages over another heroes, be not disheartened, folks!

+ Shadowmeld! You can place an  ambush  using  this  skill. Of course  it  will
require patience and skill. But worth to try.

+ Fast movement speed, small size. That enable  her to move and hide with ease.

+ Strong harasser type. You can kill most of your  opponent  workers  by Fan of
Knives only, or if you're rather  paranoid  you can use Shadow Strike to finish
them off. Also with her Blink spell enabled, you  can  easily  walk in and walk
out from your opponent base as long as you don't get  hit  by the  Arcane Tower
which will deplete your mana pool.

+ There is no channeling spell for this lady! You can still smack your opponent
with  her  ultimate  unlike  Priestess  of  the  Moon or Far  Seer  with  their
ultimates.

+ Vengeance is a decent unit (Ultimate), coupled with  her  little  Avatars you
can support your army greatly.

+ Her skills can be used  for  nukes. FoK + SS are  deadly at high levels. Most
tier-1 units  are  no  match  for  this  combo, this also  guaranteed  work  at
intelligence and agility heroes.

+ Very fun to play  with! Demon  Hunter  is a boring hero, so as  Archmage  and
Death Knight. She has  4 (four) active spells, no aura is included, to play and
find your own style.

+ Blink is the  most  efficient  spell  ever exist. It can  be  used  both  for
attacking and  defensive  position thus your  opponent  can  never  guess  your
tactics. This, and also movement speed , what  makes her  the  most  agile  and
fastest hero in Warcraft 3.


--------------------
[6f]. Warden's Items
--------------------

Hero should carry items to help him/her survive in combats. Most hero will need
same items and so Warden. But there are  several  good  items for Warden, let's
take a look one by one.


Consumables:
-----------

- Scroll of Town Portal
  Undoubtedly the most useful item in this game. You can transport back to your
  main town simply by double clicking the scroll's portrait. This item saves my
  army many times for a cheap 350 gold.

- Clarity Potion
  This cheap item have helped me much in the past, regains 100  mana unless hit
  by another units. Low level Warden will  need this  item   constantly to help
  her spam FoK and SS/ Blink.

- Healing Potion
  Sold cheaply for 150 gold. Buy one  of this item will  improve  your Warden's
  survivalability greatly.

- Greater Healing Potion
  (same as Healing Potion, except for the price and the amount of health xD )

- Moonstone
  Use this item (sold at NE shop) for  50 gold as  often as  possible. It  will
  replenishes your Moonwell mana however, don't use this if your opponents  are
  also NE's user.

- Mana Potion
  Unless you don't  plan  to use her  spell  (but I doubt it :D ), you'll  most
  likely need this potion to keep her  spamming  her spells (good for Nukes and
  AoE Abuse skill builds)

- Invulnerable Potion
  This lil' item will keep you Warden stay healthy.....no stay alive  I mean. 7
  seconds invulnerability is insane, you can then remove her from focus fire or
  step even further, at the  same time abusing your spells xD Always have  this
  item in your inventory.

- Scroll of Protection
  Useful in battles, sold at shop. +2 armor  in AoE is virtually nice since you
  can improve your units armor temporarily  and help  your army turn  the tide.

- Scroll of Healing
  Pretty  damn  nice  for  mass  healing, especially  when you  run out of your
  moonwells' mana.


Equipments:
----------

- Staff of Preservation
  Most Night Elf players will bring this thingy, even just one. This staff  can
  be your dear savior, especially  to s ave hero and bears. Since  Warden  only
  need little micro (unlike Lich or Archmage, for example), you can concentrate
  your energy to preserve your units.

- Circlet of Nobility
  if you happen find some on your creeping  time, don't sell them. Most players
  sell this item for measly gold,  this is useless. +2 stats gain for ALL power
  is a nice addition for her.

- Gloves of Haste
  Very excellent item for her, you rely on  her   physical attack. + 15% attack
  speed will cause a havoc in your opponents armies. Bring also Orb of Venom.

- Boots of Speed
  Well, if you have enough gold, please  buy  this  item. BoS + Blink will make
  your Warden the fastest  creature   ever exist. I managed to kill Blademaster
  with lv 3 Windwalk with this item BUT +Blink and SS, of course >_>.

- Helm of Cunning and Helm of Valor
  Don't sell these items if  you  happen to meet one. +4 stats improvements are
  good.

- Runed Bracers
  This cheap little proggie  is able  to reduce the  spell  attacks. Have it at
  your inventory if possible.

- Pendant of Mana or Pendant of Energy
  Mana  enchancements  are  so   godly is you're a big fan  of  Warden's spells
  exploitations. :)

- Staff of Silence
  You might want to keep this to silence those spellcasters and heroes' spells
  temporarily.

- Talisman of Evasion
  Unlike DH who doesn't need  this item, having one at your  inventory could be
  proven very  valuable  if you want your Warden to fight in front line as long
  as possible. But this item is rather rare, more's the pity.

- Any Aura-related equips
  ex:     The Lion Horn of Stormwind,   Scourge Bone Chimes,  Legion Doom-Horn,
  Khadgar's Pipe of Insight,   Ancient Janggo of Endurance,  Alleria's Flute of
  Accuracy.

- Claw of Attacks.
  Don't sell these items if  you  happen to meet one. Attack power improvements
  are really needed.

- Any Orb
  Particularly  useful  to hit  that  air unit. Remember, she's melee not range
  hero, but luckily she has some anti-air spells (FoK and SS).


--------------------------------
[6g]. Warden's Threats and Preys
--------------------------------

This section will cover another heroes, mostly used to see another strength and
weaknesses. The largest section in this FAQ, I believe xD


Bad against:
------------

- Demon Hunter
  His main skill is Mana  Burn   and   Evasion, which are annoying since Warden
  relies heavily on  her  spells. At lv 3 Mana Burn will take most of your mana
  away (150 points). He  also  has   insane  Evasion, which allows him to avoid
  Warden's  physical   attacks. While   his ultimate can crush his opponents to
  mincemeat, true....Metamorphosis  is  unbeatable. Well folks, at lv 10 he can
  beat down Blademaster, also  at lv 10 of course :P   like no tomorrow, so how
  can  you  expect  anymore from Warden? Here's  my  wise  advice: Don't  place
  Warden  against DH, that and that alone.....

  Contributed by jack:
  " Warden should be able to beat Demon Hunter if the Demon Hunter goes for the
  immolation/evasion build. Mana Burn-ing  her to  remove  spell like  Blink is
  only effective at level 3."
  Difficulty: 10/10

- Death Knight (Undead)
  Coil, coil and coil. Most likely he will harass your creeping time and trying
  to steal your  exp this and there. Fight and repel him first,  even with lv 1
  SS before you think another moves. Undead at first tier does not have healing
  method  except  Blight regeneration and DK's Coil, but Coil cannot be used on
  self. Also he has Aura and Death Pact, his Unholy Aura makes his regeneration
  faster so even you smack him severely with your SS, prepare to be attacked on
  a minute. Death Pact usually can be tossed aside and  is  not counted, but if
  DK uses this spell, you Warden will have tough time beating this guy. Luckily
  his   ultimate  is  not  that useful, you can simply  runaway  and  let   his
  ultimate effect  subsides. But truly  worthy for him to become Undead's first
  hero.
  Difficulty: 9/10

- Pandaren (Neutral)
  There are two disadvantages for Warden when fighting against Pandaren. First,
  her life points is so small, making  her  vulnerable  to deadly Drunken Haze+
  Breath of Fire combo. Second, Panda's  physical strength is incredible  so he
  could easily survive Warden's attacks. When fighting against him, be sure not
  to be outmaneuvered by his spells and forced back to retreat since he is able
  to massacre your forces from behind. His ultimate  is even worse, Storm Earth
  and Fire is very difficult to be countered, best to run while he's using this
  spell. You might try  to  harass  him while he's creeping so as to remove his
  valuable exp.  Panda  at  lv 1 isn't deadly but Panda at lv 3 with his mighty
  combo is a force to be reckoned with, remember that. Try to  kill  his forces
  first either by using FoK or SS. Or if you *gasp* persistent enough you could
  try to SS and focus fire him.
  Difficulty: 10/10

Prolly against:
---------------

Any strength hero is a decent foe for Warden (and also some agility heroes).

- Tauren Chieftain (Orc)
  Tankers..... Even if you nuke  him with Warden's spells, he still stands firm
  for sure. His high  HP  allows him to survive FoK + SS nuke. Warden will need
  another units to help   her kill  this hero, some   bears  and   dryads would
  suffice. Don't worry about his spells, Endurance Aura  is nothing,  Shockwave
  and War Stomp can be avoided easily  if  your timing with Blink or Anti Magic
  Potion is perfect. Also because  most of Tauren users will blast Shockwave to
  your units not to your  Warden, from my experience  . The most annoying parts
  are his high HP  and  Reincarnation, which  allows him to revive with FULL HP
  and Mana.... But this hero isn't that hard when compared to DH...
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Blademaster (Orc)
  First of all, handle  and  beat  his  Windwalk first. He fits to be placed as
  first   hero  and  for  harassing (Wind Walk). As long   as   you buy Dust of
  Appearance at the beginning of the  game, you should  be fine. Don't  let him
  kills your wisps and avoid direct battle with him (one by one, because he has
  Critical Strike) until  you   gain  enough  level to cast high quality Shadow
  Strike or  Fan  of  Knives. His ultimate does  not counted....easily avoided.
  Difficulty: 8/10

- Dreadlord (Undead)
  If your opponent is using this hero for his first,  then be prepared to learn
  Blink quickly. Most likely he will use  Sleep and surround your Warden, Blink
  will  counter   this move. But  mostly this   hero is used for  Tankers (he's
  strength type hero) and of course because of his Vampiric  Aura which is nice
  for Mass Ghouls and Mass Gargoyles tactics.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Lich (Undead)
  I put Lich here because of his exceptional Frost Nova and Dark Ritual. He may
  easily spamming Nova due to his mana recovery and supported by Ritual.  These
  two spells are deadly combination, and even more deadly if  he has Death Coil
  for DK. Be prepared to put some countermeasure, ex: Anti Magic Potion is used
  as soon as you enter the battle with Lich inside. Be wary however, if he uses
  Frost Armor, you shouldn't strike him hand-to hand since your attack speed is
  badly reduced, better  to strike his units first, but you  can  still cast SS
  and FoK  near  him, he's an intelligence hero  and does not have high HP. His
  ultimate is useless against Warden, good for building only.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Crypt Lord (Undead)
  I hate his impale. Even the effects usually wear  off  in a second, but since
  his spell is used only to hold Warden  temporarily  (part of the Undead's Tri
  Nuke) I find it difficult to avoid this spell  without item support. So avoid
  direct hit from his attacks and spells. The rest  of his  spells  do not help
  him  survive  against Warden's attacks, cast few SS on him  to weaken his HP.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Archmage
  Only his Water  Elemental  that  counts, the  rest of his spells  are useless
  against Warden. Repeatedly  cast SS on him, he'll  vanish  after  3  or  four
  physical strikes afterwards.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Paladin
  He has Divine Shield and Devotion Aura, also with decent HP. Beat him  before
  he  reaches  high  level  hero, since  you will  find only trouble due to his
  shield and ultimate (Resurrection).
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Mountain King
  His almighty  Storm Bolt and  War Stomp  are  serious attacks for Warden. Use
  Anti Magic potion to  keep his  spells at bay, let him waste his mana at your
  units NOT your Warden. His high HP is also quite difficult to beat, I believe
  he's equal to Tauren Chieftain.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Pit Lord
  Mmmmmmmmm, it won't take a long  time to beat this hero, just patience needed
  because like another str heroes, he has high HP. Rain  of  Fire  is  easy  to
  avoid, the problems  are  his ultimate, Doom,  and  Howl of Terror which more
  than enough to beat  all your  tactics  so be careful not to let him alive in
  battle as long as possible. Try to focus fire him, coupled with your spells.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Dark Ranger
  Ah, her minions are trouble especially if she have huge numbers of them, stay
  out till her skellys are down. Silence and Health Drain  are not  serious, SS
  her to kill her easily. Just be  sure  not to get silenced when you're trying
  to run away with your Blink or that could lead to serious surround tactic.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Firelord
  Firelord is usually used as second hero and thus placed as low-level hero. No
  real threat from his spells, except  Lava Spawn (Summon spell, not  hard  but
  annoying). His Lava Burn and Incinerate do not considered as a threat for me,
  as well as his ultimate except the fact that his ulti is so damn cool looking
  . Blow him with SS should suffice, coupled with Dryads to remove his minions.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Beastmaster
  Dryad is a must! You can  do nothing against him if you don't  bring  Dryads.
  Abolish his  summons  and  engage  him immediately. You may find tough battle
  with him, but he  doesn't have killer spell for causing a havoc at your army.
  JUST watch out his Summons.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10


Good against:
-------------

- Far Seer (Orc)
  Don't engage his wolves, instead use wisp to kill them  (detonate)  while you
  focus your attention to Far Seer. Most Orc player will use Far  Seer as first
  hero because of his superior creeping skills  due to wolves . SS   works best
  for him since he does not possess   tanker  skills like Tauren Chieftain, use
  Blink to chase him if  he  runs  away. But best to avoid his Chain Lightning,
  it hurts... But as I  said, Intelligence heroes are no match for Warden... xD
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Shadow Hunter (Orc)
  His Healing Wave  and   Hex are the   most  annoying parts. He  can heals his
  wounded  units   and   Hex  your  Warden. While using Hex, decent orc players
  usually surround your Warden with Speed Scroll and forces you  to Tp-ing, but
  this doesn't be considered as a big deal if you have  Blink   learned. He has
  slow movement and attacking   speed, also  low HP and  useless ultimate. This
  what makes him an easy prey for Warden, two lv 3 SS and he's history.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Priestess of the Moon
  Mounted archer....not worth mentioning. She  doesn't  have active spells thus
  rendering her useless against Warden. But careful  about  her  Trueshot Aura,
  it's deadly in team game and ranged units. Fortunately  she  has  very little
  HP, nuking her should be enough.
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

- Keeper of the Grove
  Watch out his Entangling Roots, while his Treants should be  dealt  with your
  troops not your Warden. Buy Health Potion when facing  this  hero, his Thorns
  Aura is hurt. But  he  usually  is not   used as first hero, especially in NE
  mirror, so you won't  see  him high-leveled  enough  to trouble  your Warden.
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

- Blood Mage
  Okay, this is the most  pathetic hero  ever exist..... :P His  Flame  Pillars
  does decent damage, but slow animation and slow casting time makes it  easily
  avoided. His Siphon Mana and Banish don't help him much, also he have  rather
  low HP,  so SS can  kill  this guy easily.  Be  careful  though,  if he  does
  learn Banish and MK ready at his side, you can get nuked awfully hurt.
  Difficulty: 4/10

- Alchemist
  Healing Spray, Acid Bomb,  Chemical  Rage  and Transmute....are  not seen  as
  powerful spells for me. But his primary attribute is str, that what makes him
  rather   difficult  to  kill. SS  and  FoK  work  wonder  for this guy. Watch
  for his Acid Bomb because it lowers your  units' armor quite a bit.  Be  wary
  however, usually this hero is  used   as  a support only not main hero, so if
  there's another heroes in battle deal with them first!
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Tinker
  His Pocket Factory is a decent  spell  so  as his ultimate (Robo-Goblin). But
  he's an int hero, so low HP  is  his  friend. take him down quickly before he
  gains a level.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Naga Sea Witch
  This hero is awesome to  become  Warden's partner, but  if you meet her as an
  opponent, blast  her with FoK + SS. She will die pretty   quickly. It's  true
  that she possesses Mana Shield, but most WC3  players   ignore this skill and
  get Cold Arrows and Fork Lightning, so you   can  safely nuke her without any
  real resistance (except items, of course xD )
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

[6h]. Warden's Maps Analysis
----------------------------

Here are the best map to use Warden as FIRST   hero, please don't complain,  my
opinion may differ from yours! (be warned, don't fight DH with your Warden...no
matter ANYWHERE ANYTIME!)

- Lost Temple
  Explanation: Good map for Night Elf. As long as you quickly creeping and make
  your   Warden  high  level hero, you should   be  okay. Go creeping  at  your
  expansion first and gain  a  level. After that   you can either   harass your
  opponent or deal with mid camp (creep)  that guards the fountain. The path is
  up to you. I prefer harassing your opponent on this map, because my Moonwells
  are able   to  provide  additional  mana and health. Don't forget teching! :D
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Extreme Nuke (best), AoE Abuse (2nd)

- Turtle Rock
  Explanation: if it's a  close   spawn, you'll be in trouble. but if it isn't,
  you can quickly creeping around and gain level 2 easily. From this state, you
  can either expand or harassing your enemy while teching.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Hero hunter (best), AoE Abuse (2nd)

- Gnoll Wood
  Explanation: Best for creeping.  Go level up your Warden quickly and  expand.
  The most strategy is Bear + Dryad, they can help Warden considerable here.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Hero hunter (best), Extreme Nuke (2nd)

- Twisted Meadows
  (same as Gnoll Wood)
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Hero hunter (best), Extreme Nuke (2nd)

- Avalanche
  Usually for  team games. Just creeping your  surroundings  and expand  at the
  center of your  ally  and your position, ask your ally to build his expo here
  (shouldn't  be NE  who b uild an  expo, it's for Human or Orc). You  can  use
  Extreme Nuke build to pull every advantages of your Warden's spells (teamgame
  needs attack power and team works, not micro).
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Extreme Nuke (best), AoE abuse (2nd),

- Maps larger than 2 vs 2 maps.
  Explanation: Larger maps allow Warden to go creeping and gains enough  level.
  High Leveled Warden will   make her  difficult to kill, especially  with Lv 3
  Blink.

[7]. Demon Hunter                                                      [DEMON2]
===============================================================================


---------------------------
[7a]. Demon Hunter's Basics
---------------------------

Here's Night Elf Tanker.  You can get all around hero  if  you do choose him as
your favourite. Possessing terrible spells   like  Evasion  and  Metamorphosis,
well aided with his Mana Burn and Immolation. A prime  example for a  good hero
all-round. I'm sure there are bunch of players that use him as their first hero
every day.

Well, first let me explain the Demon Hunter's basic stuff ^_^;; as usual.

- Metamorphosis adds 500 HP and enhances regeneration rate temporarily.
- I do not list the Hotkeys because of that costumized hotkeys feature.

---------------------------------------------------

Skills Analysis
---------------

Mana Burn
---------

Advantages and disadvantages:

+ Very good spell for ANY heroes and spellcasters, as this  spell at high level
will take most of their mana away.

+ Quick cooldown.

+ Low mana cost.

- Bad spell choice to catch that  pesky runaway units, too short cast range and
does not slow your foes.

- Has   limited  usage  against  some  units, ex: Archers (they don't have mana
anyway).

- This is not a finishing move spell.

Usages:
-------

- Use this against any units that have mana  pool. Granted, their skills cannot
be used anymore as at lv 2 or 3 this spell does insane burn.

- As soon you encounter an enemy units, use this spell  either  to heroes or to
regular units. Basically  this  spell should be cast as soon as the cooldown is
completed. The basic rule is: ABUSE IT!


Immolation
----------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ High damage output (at Level 2 or higher).

+ Quite big AoE.

+ No cast range.

+ Cannot be stopped even with Stun Spells   such  as   Storm Bolt,  can only be
deactivated automatically when DH is running out of mana or silenced.

- If this spell is   not mastered, it's rather   useless, since   every   level
requires same mana cost.

- Demon Hunter needs to be in   front row, hand-to-hand with enemy units, which
makes him more vulnerable to attacks.

- HIGH mana  cost.  And  (this contributed by Lee)  if your DH is disabled, ie:
sleep or stunned, the skill still eats your mana away like no tomorrow.

Usages:
-------

- This spell should be   used  when  harassing only. Using this in  battle will
  drain your   mana  rapidly, thus avoid Demon Hunter's another spell like Mana
  Burn. Aim for their workers (peons, acolytes, or ghouls) for the best result.

- If you insist using this spell  in battle, make sure you  have  rapid  finger
  because at some point, you'll  need to turn off the autocast so as to prevent
  your DH in no mana condition. Better stick to the former usages, in fact.


Evasion
-------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Passive  skill,   meaning that you don't need to click the spell in  order to
  make it active.

+ Has decent evasion rate EVEN at  level 1, thus allowing DH to survive longer.

+ Very compatible with DH's another spell. You can mix this skill with ease.

- Doesn't evade spell attacks.

- Is not able to dispel slowing attacks and/or Orb effect actions (e.g Undead's
Frost Wyrm cold breath or Orb of Lightning)

Usages:
-------

- Simple, learn it and forget it. :)


Metamorphosis
-------------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Makes DH stronger many  times. You  can  massacre  most  of  enemy units (and
  heroes) only with this spell.

+ HP addition to DH temporarily as well as temporary health regeneration.

+ Makes DH attack style becomes ranged.

- Rather high mana cost.

- Slow cooldown which makes it boring to wait for this spell active again.

Usages:
-------

- Please just cast this  spell  in BATTLE only. it's useless when  cast outside
battle. Just make sure your DH  stays alive  as long as  possible as the  chaos
attack is very damaging both to units, heroes and buildings.


Skills Build
------------

There  are  several  options  building your DH's skills. You  must  choose  the
right one in each battle depending on your enemy's starting hero  or race. Fail
to do so will  get you  bad result. In fact, DH  can deal with ALL  heroes type
and form ANY race!

1. Evasion, Immolation (Tanker)
   This is the skill builds' order:
   - lv1 -> Immolation
   - lv2 -> Evasion
   - lv3 -> Immolation
   - lv4 -> Evasion
   - lv5 -> Immolation
   - lv6 -> Metamorphosis
   - lv7 -> Evasion
   - lv8 -> MB
   - lv9 -> MB
   - lv10-> MB
   Description: Immolation should be mastered first. You  then  can   deal with
   Evasion,  this   will  allow   you  to harass the workers and enables you to
   encounter the enmy's a rmy with immolation turned on Works best against mass
   melee units.

2. Mana Burn, Evasion (Fighter)
   - lv1 -> MB
   - lv2 -> Evasion
   - lv3 -> MB
   - lv4 -> Evasion
   - lv5 -> MB
   - lv6 -> Metamorphosis
   - lv7 -> Evasion
   - lv8 -> Immolation
   - lv9 -> Immolation
   - lv10-> Immolation
   Description: MB   holds  the   most  important point here. Evasion  comes in
   second. Mana Burn can be spammed without running a risk about low mana. This
   setup works best against Intelligence heroes and mass spellcasters.

3. Mana Burn, Immolation (Harasser)
   - lv1 -> MB
   - lv2 -> Immolation
   - lv3 -> Immolation
   - lv4 -> MB
   - lv5 -> MB
   - lv6 -> Metamorphosis
   - lv7 -> Immolation
   - lv8 -> Evasion
   - lv9 -> Evasion
   - lv10-> Evasion
   Description: Not as powerful as the two  builds above, but still   useful in
   several ocassions. based from what  I've seen from replays, this build isn't
   that popular. You'd better stick with the former two.

You should choose Metamorphosis at lv 6 / 7. This spell is the most important!

Conclusion:
----------

His skills are good, many combinations can be used   to   find   different play
sytle. You don't need super-duper-powerful   micro to make this hero effective.
All you need is some patience and luck :P

+========+====================================================================+

Note: You can see, there's an addition about 500 points in his life points.
Also, THERE IS life regeneration bonus (unseen).

Time for Demon Hunter's analysis now xD


Analysis:
---------

- (Str gain) 40-18= 22. Very good base Str with nice additions each level. This
area is the reason why Demon Hunter is soooo powerful. You can further help him
to survive by carry some health and invul potions.

- (Agi gain) 35-22= 13. High base armor, high agi gain. Demon Hunter,  perhaps,
two times stronger than Warden and three times   stronger than Priestess of the
Moon. It's all because of   his  Agility. True, Warden can be equal in terms of
final   agility   and   agility   gain, but she lacks attack   speed and damage
reduction, this what makes DH a slower killer but very effective.

- (Int gain) 34-16= 18. Very nice int for agi hero. This what makes  your DH do
not run out of mana. Anyway, if you depend on his Immolation,  you should bring
Mana Potions, but I doubt it >_>.

- (Health) He has 1100 health points   at   level 10 (1600 while metamorphing),
very different  when   compared   to   Warden or PotM or KotG. Demon Hunter has
Metamorphosis   spell that   allows him to   gains another 500 hit points while
the rest don't have such skill. Low hitpoints is very prone to nukes, I'll deal
with nukes later, this part is just for information.

- (Mana) He has quite nice amount of Mana. No need to improve this area.

- (Damage) Now as a melee fighter, he has  INSANE attack power. Yep, his attack
speed is fast...too fast  (1.70)  with  a pretty   nice addition every level he
gains.

- (Armor) Evasion   + his Agility   gain  combine  together  causing  excellent
protection. He's our meathield, guaranteed.


Conclusion:
----------

He has decent Str, Agi and Int base, coupled with  nice   additions each level.
He's undoubtely Night Elf's  strongest  hero,   capable to be used at different
environment and different situation. You can rely your faith ih this guy.


--------------------------------
[7d]. Demon Hunter's Weak points
--------------------------------

Here   I  have  listed  some (different from Warden, eh :P )   Demon   Hunter's
weaknesses,

- Be particularly careful when facing these types of nukes, although he surely
  able to survive all of the nukes listed below but they could effectively
  remove your DH from combat temporarily. Examples of 'nukes':
        *) Undead's Tri-Nuke: Frost Nova, Death Coil and Impale
           Description      : The best nuke in The Frozen Throne universe. Just
                              don't   let him a ccept  direct  hit  from  those
                              spells. Usually this can be solved by  Anti-Magic
                              Potion or Invulnerable pots.
        *) MK + Blood Mage  : War Stomp and Storm Bolt + Banish
           Description      : Avoid these spells! Just don't come  near MK  and
                              you should be fine. Do not use Invul pot, as long
                              as you keep your distance, it will be fine  since
                              MK is so slow and   have  low  mana points.  Just
                              watch out  for Banish which  improves  the damage
                              from spell attacks alot!
        *) Orc's Nuke       : Chain Lightning and Shockwave
           Description      : If you take these two spells directly, guaranteed
                              that   your   KotG will have   his   life  points
                              reduced considerably. Use invis pot or Anti Magic
                              Potion will prevent this.
        *) Panda+Naga Sea   : Drunken Haze + Breath of Fire  and Fork Lightning
           Description      : Panda at high level is  a  pain. His Drunken Haze
                              can destroy your   KotG,  also with his Breath of
                              Fire enabled   you can take  free damage quickly.
                              Oh, dished with Fork Lightning after that isn't a
                              fun thing to do.   So   better  use  Invulnerable
                              potion if you happen to meet this combo.

- Stun spell (Storm Bolt etc), that will lead to   surround   tactics   because
  DH   has   no   way   to escape except using Town Portal or TPed  by Staff of
  Preservation.

- Curse spell (Banshee), that will weaken him severely. Use  Dryads'    Abolish
  Magic to dispel the effect.

- Slow spell (Sorceress), that will weaken him severely. Use Dryads'    Abolish
  Magic to dispel the effect.

- Stasis Trap is deadly too, not because of their damage, but for their stun...
  that WOULD  lead to  surround tactics because DH has no way to escape  except
  using Town Portal or TP-ed  by Staff of Preservation.

- Any hero with 'summon' skill (ex: Beastmaster or Far Seer) can  destroys low-
  level Demon Hunter, even if  you  are  able   to kill the hero, your DH would
  be severely damaged. Use wisps to remove them quickly.

- Air Units. If you meet  mass   air  units, be prepared to buy Orb of Venom or
  your Demon Hunter  will render useless, since he doesn't have spells to reach
  air.

- Doesn't have Shadowmeld :( , so the only thing for him to  hide  is the godly
  Staff of Preservation.


----------------------------------
[7e]. Demon Hunter's Strong points
----------------------------------

Compared to another NE hero,   you   can  pretty sure this guy have more strong
points than weaknesses :D

+ There is no channeling spell for this guy! You can still  smack your opponent
with   his   ultimate   unlike   Priestess of the Moon or Far Seer with   their
ultimates.

+ Metamorphosis is a decent....an ultra powerful spell (Ultimate), coupled with
few potions, you can destroy your opponent armies with ease.

+ His Evasion is one of the nicest passive skill in this game. Easy to  use and
dependable.

+ Very strong to be used as a tanker. This is because his Evasion  and physical
stats are so good.

+ Not  mana-dependable.  Particularly, his attack power is more useful than his
spells

+ Quite fast movement speed.


--------------------------
[7f]. Demon Hunter's Items
--------------------------

Hero should carry items to help him/her survive in combats. Most hero will need
same items and so Demon Hunter. But there  is   several   good  items for Demon
Hunter, let's take a look one by one.

Consumables:
-----------

- Scroll of Town Portal
  Undoubtely the most useful item in this game. You can transport  back to your
  main town simply by double clicking the scroll's portrait.

- Healing Potion
  Sold cheaply for 150 gold. Buy   one   of   this  item will improve your DH's
  survivalability greatly.

- Greater Healing Potion
  (same as Healing Potion, except for the price xD )

- Invulnerable Potion
  This lil' item will keep you DH  stay healthy.....no  stay  alive  I  mean. 7
  seconds invulnerability is insane, you can then remove him from focus fire or
  step even further, at the same  time  abusing your Mana Burn.    Always  have
  this item in your inventory.

- Scroll of Protection
  Useful in battles, sold at shop. +2 armor in AoE  is virtually nice since you
  can improve your units armor temporarily and help your army turn the tide.

- Scroll of Healing
  Pretty  damn   nice   for   mass healing, especially when you run out of your
  moonwells' mana. Always   bring   reasonable amount of this item whenever you
  want to go fight your foe till death.


Useless Consumables:
--------------------

- Any mana-related potions
  Ex: Mana Potion, or Clarity Potion.
  Since Demon Hunter  doesn't rely heavily in his mana, there's no need for you
  to but these   items. You can spend   your gold in Staff of Preservation, for
  example, so as to save your other units.


Equipments:
----------

- Staff of Preservation
  Most Night Elf players will bring this  thingy, even just one. This staff can
  be your dear saviour, especially to   save hero and bears. Since Demon Hunter
  only need very very  little micro (unlike Lich or Archmage, for example), you
  can concentrate your energy to preserve your units.

- Circlet of Nobility
  if you happen find  some on your creeping time, don't sell them. Most players
  sell this item for  measly gold, this is useless. +2 stats gain for ALL power
  is a nice addition for him.

- Gloves of Haste
  Very excellent item for him, you can even more rely on his physical attack. +
  15% attack speed will cause a havoc in your opponents armies.

- Boots of Speed
  Well, if you have enough gold, please buy this item. Even more neede when you
  fight Blademaster  or DK,   for   example, since these two heroes have faster
  movement speed than DH (Blademaster has WW, DK has Unholy Aura).

- Helm of Cunning and Helm of Valor
  Don't sell these items if   you happen to meet one. +4 stats improvements are
  good.

- Runed Bracers
  This cheap little proggie  is able  to reduce the  spell  attacks. Have it at
  your inventory if possible.

- Staff of Silence
  You might want to keep this to silence those spellcasters and heroes' spells
  temporarily.

- Any Aura-related equips
  ex:     The Lion Horn of Stormwind,   Scourge Bone Chimes,  Legion Doom-Horn,
  Khadgar's Pipe of Insight,   Ancient Janggo of Endurance,  Alleria's Flute of
  Accuracy.

- Any Orb
  Pretty   useful to   hit  that air unit. Remember, he's melee not ranged hero
  (except when metamorphing).


Useless equipments:
------------------

- Pendant of Mana or Pendant of Energy
  What? What do you expect from these equips for your DH?

- Talisman of Evasion
  One word... 'stack'.

--------------------------------------
[7g]. Demon Hunter's Threats and Preys
--------------------------------------

This section will cover another heroes, mostly used to see another strength and
weaknesses. The largest section in this FAQ, I believe.


Bad against:
------------

- Death Knight (Undead)
  Coil, coil and coil. Most likely he will harass your creeping time and trying
  to steal your exp this  and there.  Fight and repel him first, even with lv 1
  MB before you think another moves. Undead at first tier does not have healing
  method except Blight   regeneration and DK's Coil, but Coil cannot be used on
  self. Also he has Aura and Death Pact, his Unholy Aura makes his regeneration
  faster   so   even   you  smack  him  severely, prepare to be   attacked   on
  a minute. Death Pact usually can be tossed aside and does not counted, but if
  DK uses this spell, you DH will have  tough  time beating   this guy. Luckily
  his   ultimate   is   not that useful, you can simply runaway and   let   his
  ultimate effect subsides. But truly worhy for him to  become   Undead's first
  hero.
  Difficulty: 9/10

- Blademaster (Orc)
  First of all, handle and beat his Windwalk first. He   fits to be   placed as
  first hero  and   for   harassing   (Wind Walk). As   long as you buy Dust of
  Appearance  at   the beginning of the game, you should be fine. Don't let him
  kills your wisps and avoid direct battle with him (one by one, because he has
  Critical Strike) until you gain enough   level to cast high quality Mana Burn
  and bring your almighty Evasion.   In the meantime, cast MB everytime you see
  this hero so  as   to   repel   his   Wind  Walk spell. His ultimate does not
  counted....easily avoided.
  Difficulty: 9/10

- Pandaren (Neutral)
  There are two disadvantages  for DH  when  fighting  against Pandaren. First,
  her life points is  small, making  him  vulnerable  to  deadly  Drunken Haze+
  Breath of Fire combo. Second, Panda's  physical strength is incredible  so he
  could easily survive DH's attacks. When  fighting  against  him,  be sure not
  to be outmaneuvered by his spells and forced back to retreat since he is able
  to massacre your forces from behind. Try to Mana Burn him so as  to block his
  combo's power for Panda without spells is nothing :) . His  ultimate  is even
  worse, Storm  Earth  and Fire is very difficult to be countered, best  to run
  while he's  using  this  spell. You  might  try  to  harass  him  while  he's
  creeping so as to remove his valuable exp.  Panda  at  lv 1  isn't deadly but
  Panda at lv 3 with his mighty combo is a force to  be reckoned with, remember
  that.
  Difficulty: 9/10


Prolly against:
---------------

Any strength hero is a decent foe for DH (and also some agility heroes).

- Tauren Chieftain (Orc)
  Tankers..... Even   if  you hit him hard, he still stands firm  for sure. His
  high HP allows him to   survive  DH's attacks. DH will need  another units to
  help  him  kill  this hero, some bears and dryads would  suffice. Don't worry
  about his  spells, Endurance Aura is nothing, Shockwave  and War Stomp can be
  avoided easily by casting some Mana Burn to him. Also  because most of Tauren
  users   will   blast  Shockwave  to your units   not to your  DH   (from   my
  experience). The most annoying parts   are his high HP   and   Reincarnation,
  which allows him to   revive   with FULL HP and Mana.... But this  hero isn't
  that hard when compared to DK...
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Dreadlord (Undead)
  If your opponent is  using this hero for his first, then be prepared to learn
  either  Immolation or  Evasion. Most   likely he  will use Sleep and surround
  your DH, so you'd be better watch out. Using Immolation and few Archers would
  help your DH to survive. Don't fight this hero alone, bring another hero with
  you  (ex: Naga  Sea  Witch ).   But mostly this hero  is   used for   Tankers
  (he's  strength type hero) and of course because of  his  Vampiric Aura which
  is nice  for Mass Ghouls and Mass Gargoyles tactics.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Lich (Undead)
  I put Lich here because of his exceptional Frost Nova and Dark Ritual. He may
  easily spamming Nova due to his mana recovery  and supported by Ritual. These
  two spells are deadly combination, and  even more deadly if he has Death Coil
  for DK. Be prepared to put some countermeasure, ex: Anti Magic Potion is used
  as soon as you enter the battle with Lich inside. Be wary however, if he uses
  Frost Armor, you shouldn't strike him hand-to hand since your attack speed is
  badly reduced, better to strike his  units first, but you can still cast Mana
  Burn as it will weaken him somewhat. Luckily, he's intelligence hero and does
  not  have   high  HP. His  ultimate  is useless against DH, good for building
  only.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Crypt Lord
  Impale, the almighty   spell  even in its FIRST level. The stun is insane, ya
  know? Mana Burn  works  wonder for this hero, but you'll need another hero to
  hunt him down, because he has wicked  passive  skill like Carapace Armor...Oh
  bring wisps too if he starts spawning his beetles.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Archmage
  Only his Water   Elemental   that  counts, the rest of his spells are useless
  against DH. Hunt him down quickly, MB could renders so good support too.
  Difficulty: 6/10

- Paladin
  He has Divine Shield  and Devotion Aura, also with decent HP. Beat him before
  he reaches high  level  hero, since you will   find  only  trouble due to his
  shield and ultimate (Resurrection).  Holy Light   and Divine Shield should be
  dealt by Mana Burn.
  Difficulty: 6/10

- Mountain King
  His almighty Storm Bolt  and War  Stomp   are   serious attacks   for DH. Use
  Anti Magic potion   to   keep his spells at bay or MB him BEFORE he's able to
  cast them, let him waste his mana at your  units  NOT your DH. His high HP is
  also quite difficult to beat, I believe he's equal to Tauren Chieftain.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Pit Lord
  Mmmmmmmmm, it won't take a long time to beat  this hero, just patience needed
  because  like   another  str   heroes,  he has high  HP. Try not to be in his
  troublesome AoE spell, Rain of Fire.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Dark Ranger
  Ah, her minions are trouble especially if she have huge numbers of them, stay
  out till her skellys are  down. Silence and Health Drain  are not serious, MB
  her to kill her easily.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Firelord
  Firelord usually used as second hero  and thus placed on low - level hero. No
  real threat  from his  spells, except  Lava Spawn (Summon spell, not hard but
  annoying). His Lava Burn and Incinerate do not considered as a threat for me,
  as well as his ultimate. Blow him with MB should suffice.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Beastmaster
  Detonate wisp to deal with his summons, and Mana Burn him for optimal result.
  He has quite big HP so be prepared to hit him FAST and HARD! :P
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Warden
  Heh, worry not. She is no  match for DH ;_; Mana Burn  should be used to deny
  her almighty  FoK  and SS. In  such strait she won't  last that long, but you
  might not be able to kill her due to Blink and Shadowmeld.
  Difficulty: 7/10


Good against:
-------------

Intelligence heroes is no match  for  properly trained DH, as long as you don't
linger around....

- Far Seer (Orc)
  His HP isn't   that  high  because he's intelligence hero. But his wolves are
  annoying, so  bring   wisp and detonate them, higher level wolves may require
  more than one wisp  to finish them off. Careful by his Chain Lightning, at lv
  3 it may injure   your low level units like Archers and Huntress so Mana Burn
  him first  to   avoid  this. His ultimate does not counted it will not affect
  anything  except building. Usually simple attacks should be  enough to defeat
  him, only his Wolves and Chain Lightning that are worth mentioning.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Shadow Hunter (Orc)
  His Healing Wave and   Hex  are   the  most  annoying parts. He can heals his
  wounded    units   and  Hex your DH. While   using Hex, decent  orc   players
  usually surround your DH with Speed Scroll and   forces you to Tp-ing. He has
  slow movement and   attacking speed,   also low HP and useless ultimate. This
  what makes  him   an easy prey for DH, two lv 3 MB and he has nothing.... But
  use some Dryads to slow him down while your DH deals with his mana poolfirst.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Priestess of the Moon
  Mounted archer....not worth  mentioning. She  doesn't have active spells thus
  rendering   her   useless   against DH. But careful about her  Trueshot Aura,
  it's deadly in team game and  ranged units. Fortunately   she has very little
  HP, slashing   her with   regular attacks should be enough. For  her  Searing
  Arrow, use MB.
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

- Keeper of the Grove
  Watch out his Entagling Roots,  while   his Treants should be dealt with your
  troops not   your   DH. Buy  Health  Potion when facing this hero, his Thorns
  Aura   is   hurt. But he usually doesn't used as first hero, especially in NE
  mirror, so you won't see him high-leveled enough to trouble your DH. In fact,
  Mana Burn alone can deal with him immediately. :P
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

- Blood Mage
  Okay, this  is  the   most pathetic hero ever exist..... :P His Flame Pillars
  does decent damage, but  slow animation and slow casting time makes it easily
  avoided. His Siphon Mana and  Banish don't help him much, also he have rather
  low HP, so MB and  smack him  away can kill this guy easily. Just  don't  get
  banished and stunned by MK's combo.
  Difficulty: 3/10

- Alchemist
  Healing Spray,  Acid  Bomb, Chemical Rage   and  Transmute....are not seen as
  powerful spells for  me. But his  primary attribute is str, that's what makes
  him rather difficult  to  kill. Mana Burn   works   wonder   for this guy. Be
  wary however, usually   this   hero is  used as a support only not main hero,
  so if  there's another heroes in battle deal with them first!
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Tinker
  His Pocket Factory is a decent spell so  as  his  ultimate (Robo-Goblin). But
  he's an int hero, so  low HP  is his  friend. take him down quickly before he
  gains a level.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Naga Sea Witch
  This her  o is  awesome   to  become DH's partner, but if you  meet her as an
  opponent, blast her with MB and hunt her  with  regular attacks. She will die
  pretty quickly. It's   true   that   she  possesses Mana Shield, but most WC3
  players ignore this skill and get Cold Arrows and Fork  Lightning, so you can
  safely nuke her without any real resistance (except items, of course xD )
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

[7h]. Demon Hunter's Maps Analysis
----------------------------------

Demon Hunter is inarguably   can   be  used at ANY map with DIFFERENT terrains,
because of his  strong physical nature. However, I'll list   some  maps to give
some description.

- Lost Temple
  Explanation: Good map for Night Elf. As long as you quickly creeping and make
  your DH high level  hero, you   should   be   okay.   Go   creeping at   your
  expansion   first  and gain a level. After  that you   can either harass your
  opponent or deal with mid camp (creep) that guards the  fountain. The path is
  up to you. I prefer harassing your opponent on this map, because my Moonwells
  are able to provide additional mana and health. Dont forget teching! :D
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Fighter (best), Tanker (2nd)

- Turtle Rock
  Explanation: if it's a  close   spawn, you'll be in bit trouble, be quick and
  build  several  archers   to help you   defend   your  base. But if it isn't,
  you can quickly creeping around and gain level 2 easily, steal the free wards
  from both tavern, they can help you greatly. From this state, you  can either
  expand or harassing your enemy while teching.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Fighter (best), Tanker (2nd)

- Gnoll Wood
  Explanation: Best   for   creeping.   Go level up your DH quickly and expand.
  The most strategy is Bear + Dryad, they can help DH considerable here.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Fighter (best), Tanker (2nd)

- Twisted Meadows
  (same as Gnoll Wood)
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Tanker (best), Fighter (2nd)

- Avalanche
  Usually for  team   games. Just  creeping your surroundings and expand at the
  center of your ally   and your position, ask your ally to build his expo here
  (shouldn't be NE  who build an expo, it's for   Human   or  Orc). You can use
  Harasser build to pull e very   advantages of your   DH's   spells  (teamgame
  needs attack power and team works, not micro).
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Harasser (best), Tanker (2nd)

- Maps larger than 2 vs 2 maps.
  Explanation: Larger   maps allow DH to go    creeping and gains enough level.
  High Leveled DH will make him  very difficult to kill,   especially with Lv 3
  Evasion. Don't forget to bring also Town Portal because your movement speed
  cannot be compared to Warden (Blink).

===============================================================================


-----------------------------------
[8a]. Keeper of the Grove's Basics
-----------------------------------

Yeah a bit intro as usual :P

Keeper of the Grove is   the  only ONE in NE's altar who possesses intelligence
attribute. So he's   seriously a good addition to NE heroes set. You can expect
good challenge when using him, but   beware,   he needs the biggest micro skill
ever. Trust me, it's   not fun  playing   him without proper skill. You'll need
practice, strategy and knowledge to pull his powers.

Oh, he's the weakest of  the  four NE heroes (physical abilities), don't forget
that...

[8b]. Keeper of the Grove's Skills analysis + Skills Build
-----------------------------------------------------------

Skills Analysis
---------------

Entagling Roots
---------------

Advantages and disadvantages:

+ Very good spell for tier-1  units. It   hurts   badly for low life units, ex:
  Archer, Footman etc. At   level  3, ER is deadly both hero and regular (land)
  units however powerful they are. Has relatively  quick   cooldown, bring mana
  potions to pull this spell to its full potential.

+ Disables the enemy's movement, so you can kill it with focus fire.

+ Disables the enemy's attacks. Making it very useless temporarily.

+ Stops channeling spells! Wow, can you hear me, IT STOPS CHANNELING SPELLS!

+ Quick cooldown, even at higher level.

+ Low mana cost, even at higher level.

- Dispellable.

- Cannot be used on air unit.

- Not an AoE spell. :P


Usages:
-------

- Nukes. Try to use ER with other heroes' spells ex: Mana  Burn (DH) or  Shadow
  Strike (Warden). However, it is quite independent, you can always focus  fire
  your foe.

- Cast it at Red health unit. You can kill it without even send a strike.

- Cast it at Fleeing unit. ER has quite huge cast  range, so you can catch that
  runaway unit easily.

- Cast it at Hero. cast this at hero to effectively remove him/ her form combat
  temporarily, especially for these heroes: Demon Hunter, Blademaster, Mountain
  King.


Force of Nature
---------------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Cheap mana cost.

+ Treants at lv 3 are strong units.

+ Long cast range.

- If this spell does not mastered, it's rather  useless. Treants  in lv1 or lv2
  aren't that strong.

- Can be dispelled (Treants).

- Quite long cooldown.

Usages:
-------

- Cast in trees.

- Used for scouting and in battle. Useful for giving your army a booster.


Thorns Aura
-----------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Passive aura, meaning no mana cost and actively used. YAY!

+ Has decent return melee damage.

+ Quite BIG AoE.

+ Affects air and ranged allies' unit as well, so practically  this affects ALL
  allied units, unlike Brilliance Aura which has no   effect for no mana units.

- Does not return ranged enemy units' damage.

Usages:
-------

- Learn this spell and forget it. >_<


Tranquility
-----------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Healing AoE. Why  I put   this in  advantages section? Simple, no other units
  have   such   wonderful   skill like him. Healing AoE is t he rarest skill in
  Warcraft III, cast aside Healing Wards >_>

+ Its area of effect is quite HUGE!

+ VERY QUICK COOLDOWN.

+ Pretty low mana requirement. Anyway, he's intelligence hero, so he  shouldn't
  have any problem about mana....

- Channeling spell. This what makes him vulnerable to attacks and focus fire.


Usages:
-------

- Please  just  cast  this spell in BATTLE only. it's useless when cast outside
battle, or when most of your units in red conditions and need to be healed.


Skills Build
------------

There are several  options building  your  KotG's skills. You  must  choose the
right one  in each battle  depending on your enemy' starting hero or race. Fail
to do so  will  get  you  bad  result. KotG  can  deal  with  some  heroes type
and form ANY race except..... Demon Hunter. Please, do not and NEVER  use  KotG
against Demon Hunter!

1. Entangling Roots, Thorns Aura (Catcher)
   This is the skill builds' order:
   - lv1 -> ER
   - lv2 -> TA
   - lv3 -> ER
   - lv4 -> TA
   - lv5 -> ER
   - lv6 -> Tranquility
   - lv7 -> TA
   - lv8 -> FoN
   - lv9 -> FoN
   - lv10-> FoN
   Description: ER  should  be mastered  first. You then can deal with TA, this
   will allow you to hunt down enemy hero and low level units.

2. Force of Nature, Thorns Aura (Summoner)
   - lv1 -> FoN
   - lv2 -> TA
   - lv3 -> FoN
   - lv4 -> TA
   - lv5 -> FoN
   - lv6 -> TA
   - lv7 -> Tranquility
   - lv8 -> ER
   - lv9 -> ER
   - lv10-> ER
   Description: FoN is the most important  spell here. With  it, you can harass
   your opponent workers and later you can take down several enemy units all by
   using Treants only.

3. Entangling Roots, Force of nature (Spellcaster)
   - lv1 -> ER
   - lv2 -> FoN
   - lv3 -> ER
   - lv4 -> FoN
   - lv5 -> ER
   - lv6 -> FoN
   - lv7 -> Tranquility
   - lv8 -> TA
   - lv9 -> TA
   - lv10-> TA
   Description: If your opponent does not use melee units as much as his ranged
   units, this   setup is   for  you. You  can switch your playstyle quickly in
   combat, as long as you have mana to do so, remember this build is costly...

You should choose Tranquility at lv 6 / 7

Conclusion:
----------

You can experimenting   about his skills. Since FoN doesn't need micro, as well
as  Thorns Aura, this hero  doesn't need huge attention.  But beware, his HP is
quite low which  makes him   pretty   vulnerable  to  physical attacks so don't
concentrate   all   your  attention in his spells  only. However, he has decent
skills which is worth to try.

+========+====================================================================+

That's all for tabels for now.....


Analysis:
---------

- (Str gain) 32-16= 16. Attention, his base strength    simply  sucks. And  his
str additions until lv 10 is 16......not ENOUGH! Why? well  this  is based from
his str points only, but in fact   his   agility is also cannot  be depended as
well, which leads to   pathetic   armor points. So you may need  PLENTY Healing
potions and Invulnerable potions. These items are MUST HAVE!

- (Agi gain) 28-15=  13. Meh...what   can you expect from measly 13 points   on
Intelligence hero....eh? NOTHING! His base  attack  speed is slow, the  slowest
physical attacker in Night Elf  heroes' set. this low agility points also  lead
to low armor points. And so, as I mentioned above, you'll need plenty  items in
order to make him survive.

- (Int gain) 42-18= 24. 24 is SICK, especially because he relies heavily on his
spells. However, if you decide to go spellcaster type, bring mana potions won't
hurt. It's not fun for you to know that your Keeper of the Grove runs  out his
mana in the  middle   of   the   battle. But usually   high Int means high mana
regeneration   so   there's  no need to stock mana or clarity   potions like no
tomorrow.

- (Health) Bad str gain leads to low HP, low HP leads to early death.  And yes,
it's a fact. you need to depend  heavily on your moonwells and healing potions.
Or you can use  Staff  of  Preservation  in order to TP-ing him  back and drain
moonwells' water.

- (Mana) He has adequate amount of Mana. But it won't hurt to improve this part
by using potions or +stat point items.

- (Damage) Well, he has worthless attack power, added with slow  attack  speed.
You can't expect him as a fighter. So +damage  items may prove  useful, as long
as you don't exchange life enhancement items to improve his attack power.

- (Armor) ....argh, his armor aren't enough to keep him alive in deadly combat.
Avoid direct hits, nukes and crippling spells. No item can be used  to  improve
this stat (rings aren't that good....sadly)


Conclusion:
----------

His physical stats need   improvement   quickly. If you neglect this, you can't
even  survive 10 hits   from   Blademaster  or  Demon Hunter, trust me. But his
magical stats are good, fit to be placed into intelligence hero.


----------------------------------------
[8d]. Keeper of the Grove's Weak points
----------------------------------------

Argh, I hate to say this, but Intelligence heroes have way toooooooo much weak
points than strong points. Sad, but it's a truth...

- He must not nuked. Do so will crush your KotG. Examples of 'nukes':
        *) Undead's Tri-Nuke: Frost Nova, Death Coil and Impale
           Description      : The best nuke in The Frozen Throne universe. Just
                              don't   let him a ccept  direct  hit  from  those
                              spells. Usually this can be solved by  Anti-Magic
                              Potion or Invulnerable pots.
        *) MK + Blood Mage  : War Stomp and Storm Bolt + Banish
           Description      : Avoid these spells! Just don't come  near MK  and
                              you should be fine. Do not use Invul pot, as long
                              as you keep your distance, it will be fine  since
                              MK is so slow and   have  low  mana points.  Just
                              watch out  for Banish which  improves  the damage
                              from spell attacks alot!
        *) Orc's Nuke       : Chain Lightning and Shockwave
           Description      : If you take these two spells directly, guaranteed
                              that   your   KotG will have   his   life  points
                              reduced considerably. Use invis pot or Anti Magic
                              Potion will prevent this.
        *) Panda+Naga Sea   : Drunken Haze + Breath of Fire  and Fork Lightning
           Description      : Panda at high level is  a  pain. His Drunken Haze
                              can destroy your   KotG,  also with his Breath of
                              Fire enabled   you can take  free damage quickly.
                              Oh, dished with Fork Lightning after that isn't a
                              fun thing to do.   So   better  use  Invulnerable
                              potion if you happen to meet this combo.
        *) Warden's SS+ FoK : Shadow Strike + Physical Hit + Fans
           Description      : SS is too powerful at lv 3, chance that you won't
                              even survive  3  hits  from it, mainly because of
                              its  fast  cooldown as well.   Use   Invulnerable
                              Potion if she starts spamming the spell at you.

- He must not be focus-fired. Low  HP and   Armor   make him very vulnerable to
  this attack type.

- Don't  let  him   being  caught by Net or Roots. This will lead to Focus Fire
  attack type and ultimately to nukes.

- Don't counter melee heroes alone. Your KotG is no match for them.

- Avoid   Curse   spell  (Banshee), that will  weaken him severely. Use Dryads'
  Abolish Magic to dispel the effect.

- Avoid Slow   spell  (Sorceress), that  will  weaken him severely. Use Dryads'
  Abolish Magic to dispel the effect.

- Demon Hunter!  His  Mana Burn is annoying, besides   he is much much stronger
  than KotG (physically).   There is no way you can  beat   this guy with KotG.
  If you see your opponent using DH, switch your hero immediately!

- Blademaster. For some reasons, he dies in BM hands pretty quickly especially
  when he is hit by critical strikes and Wind Walk. Don't come near him!

- Any hero with 'summon'  skill (ex: Beastmaster or Far Seer) can destroys low-
  level   KotG, even if you   are able to kill the hero, your   KotG   would be
  severely damaged. To avoid this, bring some wisps to dispel their summons.

- Very vulnerable to siege weapons somewhat. Perhaps due to his low life points
  and low armors.

- Rather  slow  movement speed and of course he  has  the biggest appearance in
  Night Elf heroes' set. This makes him prone to AoE attacks.

- His ultimate is channeling spell, thus makes him easy target when cast his
  ultimate.


------------------------------------------
[8e]. Keeper of the Grove's Strong points
------------------------------------------

Be not disheartened, folks. I also will  tell you his  strong powers. Here they
are:

+ The only intelligence  hero in Night Elf's altar. This offers him significant
firepower due to   his spells (usually intelligence heroes have a strong set of
spells as he has).

+ His ultimate is useful  for  healing  and  counter-attacking quickly. Yes, 60
seconds   cooldown   for  ULTIMATE  spell is rather crazy, but it's justifiable
because his ultimate is not used to attacking purpose.

+ His Treants are powerful unlike another spell summon.

+ Has passive aura which works  wonders in ALL allied units! Oh, also quite big
AoE and decent damage  (because it's based from enemy units' attacks), so don't
underestimate his aura.

+ He can attack air units unlike Warden and Demon Hunter.


----------------------------------
[8f]. Keeper of the Grove's Items
----------------------------------

This hero definitely   needs items  to help him survive in combat as well as to
enhance his physical ablities (mainly).


Consumables:
-----------

- Scroll of Town Portal
  Undoubtely   the   most   useful   item   in this game. You   can   transport
  back to your main town simply by double clicking the scroll's portrait.

- Clarity Potion
  This   cheap   item have helped me  so    much in   the past,   regains   100
  mana unless hit  by   another units. Low   level   KotG   will need this item
  constantly to help him spam Entangling Roots.

- Healing Potion
  Sold  cheaply   for   150 gold. Buy one of this item will improve your KotG's
  survivalability greatly.

- Greater Healing Potion
  (same as Healing Potion, except for the price).

- Mana Potion
  You'll need to stock up this item if you  want spellcaster style, or when you
  fight against Demon Hunter......

- Invulnerable Potion
  This lil' item will   keep you KotG  stay healthy.....no stay alive I mean. 7
  seconds invulnerability is insane, you can then remove him from focus fire or
  step even further, at the same time abusing   your spells xD Always have this
  item in your inventory.

- Scroll of Protection
  Useful in battles, sold at  shop. +2 armor in AoE is virtually nice since you
  can improve your units armor temporarily and help your army turn the tide.

- Scroll of Healing
  Pretty damn   nice   for   mass  healing, especially when you run out of your
  moonwells' mana.


Equipments:
----------

- Staff of Preservation
  Most Night Elf players  will bring this thingy, even just one. This staff can
  be your dear saviour, especially to save hero and bears. But since you'll use
  this item with your KotG, you'll   assuredly need some practice for quick tap
  both in your mouse and your keyboard.

- Circlet of Nobility
  if you happen find some  on your creeping time, don't sell them. Most players
  sell this item for   small amount of gold, this is useless. +2 stats gain for
  ALL power is a nice addition for him.

- Boots of Speed
  The most important part for your   KotG. Can be    used to hunt those runaway
  units and so catch them with Entangling Roots. Great  synergy with this hero.

- Helm of Cunning and Helm of Valor
  Don't sell these items if  you happen  to meet one. +4 stats improvements are
  good.

- Runed Bracers
  This cheap little proggie  is able  to reduce the  spell  attacks. Have it at
  your inventory if possible.

- Pendant of Mana or Pendant of Energy
  Very useful for adding KotG's firepower.

- Staff of Silence
  You might want to keep this to silence those spellcasters and heroes' spells
  temporarily.

- Talisman of Evasion
  Unlike DH who doesn't need  this item, having one at your  inventory could be
  proven very  valuable  if you want your KotG to survive bit longer . But this
  item is rather rare, more's the pity.

- Any Aura-related equips
  ex:     The Lion Horn of Stormwind,   Scourge Bone Chimes,  Legion Doom-Horn,
  Khadgar's Pipe of Insight,   Ancient Janggo of Endurance,  Alleria's Flute of
  Accuracy.


Useless equipments:
-------------------

- Any Orb
  Particularly useful   to hit that  air unit. But he can hit air units because
  he's ranged hero, what   can    you  expect from those orbs except for damage
  addition?

- Gloves of Haste
  Very excellent item for other heroes but not for KotG, you rely on his spells
  not his physical attack.


----------------------------------------------
[8g]. Keeper of the Grove's Threats and Preys
----------------------------------------------

Ok, so because of this  hero I need to rewrite this part from SCRATCH unlike DH
or Warden, which   have similar  fighting skills. Basically Intelligence heroes
would have MANY tough foes   and SMALL   easy preys. You may consider this as a
'fate'.


Bad against:
------------

Most of Warcraft III heroes would be able   to hunt   KotG down, so you may see
that there are so many heroes listed in 'Bad against' section...

- Demon Hunter
  Ah, your  nightmare   has come. Don't try to fight him because you'll need to
  change your hero quickly.   No hope for victory unless you use KotG as 2nd or
  3rd hero,  but if you   use him as 1st hero.....ergh...Basically, you'll need
  another hero in your   army to  at  least repel DH's charge, his Mana Burn is
  a  trouble  because KotG is mana-dependable. Your physical attacks won't work
  either because due to his  HIGH  armor and evasion added with your low attack
  power and slow attack speed. SO  to  repel him, you'll  need another hero and
  place your ER on him, focus fire and pray xD
  Difficulty: 10/10

- Death Knight (Undead)
  Eck, you don't want to meet or encounter  this hero in   your  path with KotG
  only as your hero.  Why? Have you forgotten his Coils and the ALMIGHTY Unholy
  Aura. With these two spells only, he is surely able to distrupts Warden's and
  Demon Hunter's time, so  how   can you expect good words with KotG? basically
  he's much   stronger AND   faster   than KotG even if you have Boots of Speed
  equipped. You probably   want helper like Beastmaster or Dark Ranger to fight
  him back. ER him for a moment and use focus fire.
  Difficulty: 9/10

- Tauren Chieftain (Orc)
  Blatantly an awful   foe   to   fight   with,   due to his Endurance Aura and
  Shockwave. His   high   HP eliminates your ER and Treants effect, while  your
  Thorns aura cannot beat his melee attacks because he's rather slow  even with
  Aura enabled. Most of Orc players will use him as a tankers   not main units,
  so you might as well cease to attack   him or if you   must, ER him and focus
  fire would do OR You can try   surround tactic if you like (by casting ER and
  micro your other units)  because his movement speed is rather slow, but WATCH
  out his War Stomp. You  may need your other units such as Dryads because they
  cannot be affected by   his Spells or Bears with rejuvenation to minimize the
  injury from his combo. Granted, he's too hard to be beaten with KotG alone.
  Difficulty: 8/10

- Blademaster (Orc)
  BUY DUST OF APPEARANCE asap. eh,  ASAP I   mean xD How can you fight him when
  he's invisible? Just   don't ever   take   his  critical attacks (skill or by
  breaking up his  Wind Walk) more than 4-5 consecutive hits, it sure hurts. ER
  him and focus fire  or surround him. His HP isn't   that   high  but the most
  annoying part that he's soooo agile and fast due to his  Critical  Strike and
  Wind Walk, so it'd be best if you  can fight  him with some decent units like
  Dryads or Bears, but don't use Mountain Giants because they're too slow to
  fight BM.
  Difficulty: 8/10

- Dreadlord (Undead)
  Don't fight him! Just  evade his movement and defend at your base if you meet
  this hero. His  sleep can halt your hero's movement and will lead to surround
  tactics (this is the   most  common strategy for Drealord's user). But if you
  insist, bring Invul  potion or Town portal to avoid death. Here's how to face
  him, teching is must later if you  have collected enough troops and don't let
  your KotG walk alone  without   any units in his side, surround him with your
  unit so    Dreadlord cannot hunt your hero with his sleep+surround tactic. ER
  him and before the effect wears off, focus fire him and force him to retreat.
  You can chase him with ER at hand (Dreadlord has pretty slow movement speed).
  Difficulty: 8/10

- Warden (Night Elf)
  Don't expect easy time.   Avoid her for a while until you can get good mix of
  units, ex: Dryads.  Don't use a low level unit like Archers because they will
  die fairly quickly in the  hand of Fan of Knives. You can try surround tactic
  if you like (by casting ER and micro your other units) but don't attempt this
  move  if  she  possesses  Blink  already. If she    manages   to   level   up
  to higher  level,   bring   also decent hero to fight her like Beastmaster or
  Firelord since it's nearly impossible to fight her by KotG only.
  Difficulty 10/10

- Pandaren (Neutral)
  There are two disadvantages for KotG  when fighting  against Pandaren. First,
  his life points is so small, making  him  vulnerable  to deadly Drunken Haze+
  Breath of Fire combo. Second, Panda's  physical strength is incredible  so he
  could easily survive KotG's attacks. When  fighting against  him, be sure not
  to be outmaneuvered by his spells and forced back to retreat since he is able
  to massacre your forces from behind. His ultimate  is even worse, Storm Earth
  and Fire is very difficult to be countered, best to run while he's using this
  spell. You might try  to  harass  him while he's creeping so as to remove his
  valuable exp.  Panda  at  lv 1 isn't deadly but Panda at lv 3 with his mighty
  combo is a force to be reckoned with, remember that. Try to ER him as much as
  possible so he can't fight your force efficiently.
  Difficulty: 10/10


Prolly against:
---------------

- Lich (Undead)
  Woooot, careful   with his   Frost Nova. And   if he brings DK along, GO HOME
  immediately, that's it if you only have KotG alone   in your stock. Basically
  he's feared because he can spam Frost Nova almost indefinitely thanks to Dark
  Ritual. However, he's still intelligence hero at least so you can cast ER and
  try to focus fire or surround   him,   granted he will die pretty quickly. In
  case he's trying  to   run (not TPing or Invul pot) you can chase him because
  his movespeed    isn't that fast. And about his two other spells, Frost Armor
  and Death and Decay, there's no need to worry. Frost Armor only affects melee
  units  even his armor is still increased by little, meanwhile Death and Decay
  isn't used to be cast in combat, it's for buildings.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Crypt Lord
  The only valuable spell   in this hero's possesion is Impale. you can try the
  same old strategy (ER  and surround) mostly after he stuns your hero with his
  Impale.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Archmage
  Simply put, you can  cast ER and surround him before his Water Elemental does
  any real damage to your KotG, and bring Dryads to dispel his Water Elemental.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Paladin
  He has Divine Shield and Devotion Aura, also with  decent HP. Beat him before
  he reaches high   level hero,   since you will find   only trouble due to his
  shield and  ultimate   (Resurrection). You can  always use   ER to   stop his
  movement and attack him with your physical attacks after surround tactic.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Mountain King
  His almighty Storm   Bolt and   War   Stomp are serious attacks for KotG. Use
  Anti Magic potion   to keep his spells at bay, let him waste his mana at your
  units NOT your KotG.   His high HP is also quite difficult to beat, I believe
  he's an equal to Tauren Chieftain.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Pit Lord
  Mmmmmmmmm, it won't take a long  time to beat this hero, just patience needed
  because like another str heroes, he has high HP. ER and surround him, for his
  movement speed isn't fast enough to avoid this.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Dark Ranger
  Ah, her minions are trouble especially if she have huge numbers of them, stay
  out till her skellys are down. Bring   some  Wisps to repel them. Silence and
  health Drain are not serious, ER her to kill her easily.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Firelord
  Firelord usually used as second hero and thus placed on low - level hero.  No
  real threat from his spells,  except Lava   Spawn (Summon spell, not hard but
  annoying). BUT   best   to   avoid his Soul Burn because you cannot cast your
  spells effectively, so ER him and bring Dryads to dispel   his Lava Spawn and
  Soul Burn.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Beastmaster
  Dryad is a must!    You can do nothing against him if you don't bring Dryads.
  Abolish    is   summons   and   avoid direct  contact with him, so ER is your
  important spell. You may find tough battle with him, but he don't have killer
  spell for causing a havoc at your army. JUST watch out his Summons OR you can
  try summon vs summon match by using treants.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Alchemist
  Healing Spray, Acid Bomb,   Chemical Rage and Transmute....are    not seen as
  powerful spells for me. But his primary attribute is str, that what makes him
  rather difficult to kill. ER +few attacks work wonder for this guy.   Be wary
  however, usually this  hero   is  used as a support only not main hero, so if
  there's another heroes in battle deal with them first!
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Far Seer (Orc)
  Don't engage his wolves,   instead use wisp to kill them (detonate) while you
  focus your attention to Far   Seer   OR bring Dryads to dispel them. Most Orc
  player will use Far Seer   as first   hero   because of his superior creeping
  skills (due to   wolves).   ER  works wonder   to catch him and does surround
  method, he will fall quickly because of his low HP. Oh also watch out for his
  Chain Lightning, it can causes real causalities if you're not careful.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Shadow Hunter (Orc)
  His Healing  Wave   and   Hex   are the most annoying parts. He can heals his
  wounded   units   and Hex your KotG.   While   using  Hex, decent orc players
  usually surround your KotG  with   Speed   Scroll   and forces you to Tp-ing,
  nothing more for you to  do. To avoid this, take also other hero and buy them
  both Staff   of  Preservation   so  you may save each  other with it. There's
  another way to avoid this by  casting ER quicker than him. Surround him after
  that and he's gone. Basically who's quicker is the winner.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Priestess of the Moon (NE)
  Her Searing Arrows hurt this hero badly, especially if shot in large quantity
  and ADDED with her almighty Trueshot Aura. But she's just a mounted archer so
  surely she doesn't possess super physical  strength. Safely said, she  can be
  defeated with some struggle. Just   don't get in hand-to-hand combat with her
  but take advantage of your spells. ER her and do a focus fire and surround if
  possible. You may need Dryad's help to slow her   down if she's trying to run
  away because her movement speed is quite   fast. Avoid her Starfall, just run
  if she starts to cast this spell OR cast ER to STOP her ultimate.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10


Good against:
-------------

Honestly, I   almost  have no idea which heroes should I  put  here, because of
KotG's affinity. Ah well, after a long thought, I finally   picked these heroes
here,

- Blood Mage
  Avoid his Siphon Mana since   you'll need your mana points, obviously. ER him
  should be enough while you order  your army to focus fire him. Just don't get
  hit by Banish and Flame Pillars combo.  He has  low HP and slow movespeed, it
  shouldn't that hard to kill him, try to  surround him  with Treants after you
  cast ER.
  Difficulty: 4/10

- Tinker
  His Pocket Factory is a   decent  spell so as his ultimate (Robo-Goblin). But
  he's an int hero, so low    HP is his friend. take him down quickly before he
  gains a level. Focus fire or surround tactic would do.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Naga Sea Witch
  This hero is awesome   to   become  KotG's partner, but if you meet her as an
  opponent, blast   her w ith ER+ Focus Fire. She will die pretty quickly. It's
  true that she possesses Mana   Shield, but most WC3 players ignore this skill
  and get Cold Arrows and Fork Ligtning, so you can safely nuke her without any
  real resistance (except items,   of course xD ). You may as well surround her
  after you cast ER, she cannot escape due to her slow movement speed.
  Difficulty: 5.5/10


------------------------------------------
[8h]. Keeper of the Grove's Maps Analysis
------------------------------------------

Most of the maps aren't compatible to use KotG as first hero. However if you
wish to know the details so be it....

- Lost Temple
  Explanation: The   best course for KotG is harassing your opponent's creeping
  time,   especially   when you fight human. And while you harass them, quickly
  tech your own hall  and try to expand your gold mines. At this tate, you must
  use Dryads or Bears  because usually Archers are not strong enough to support
  KotG. Constant harrassment is the key here.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Catcher (best), Spellcaster (2nd)
- Turtle Rock
  Explanation: Don't   expect  close spawn, you may  not win at all (unless you
  fight with terrible opponent...). If you   happen  to encounter  close spawn,
  your best choice is to defend  your  best while teching. If not  close spawn,
  it's best if  you can  creep around and open new goldmines, but don't attempt
  to expand until you have decent army to defend the expansion.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Spellcaster (best), Catcher (2nd)
- Gnoll Wood
  Explanation: Best   for   creeping. Go level up your KotG quickly and expand.
  The most strategy is Bear + Dryad, they can help KotG considerable here.
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Catcher (best), Spellcaster (2nd)
- Twisted Meadows
  (same as Gnoll Wood)
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Summoner (best), Spellcaster (2nd)
- Avalanche
  Usually for team games. Just   creeping   your surroundings and expand at the
  center of your ally and   your position, ask your ally to build his expo here
  (shouldn't be   NE   who   build an expo, it's for Human or Orc). You can use
  Summoner build to   pull   every   advantages of your KotG's spells (teamgame
  needs attack power and team works, not micro).
  Skill Build possible:
  -> Spellcaster (best), Summoner (2nd)
- Maps larger than 2 vs 2 maps.
  Explanation: Larger maps allow KotG  to go   creeping and gains enough level.
  High Leveled KotG will make him 'rather' difficult to kill. Just don't forget
  to get 2nd hero as your asset.

[9]. Priestess of the Moon                                              [MOON4]
===============================================================================


------------------------------------
[9a]. Priestess of the Moon's Basics
------------------------------------

Yeah a bit intro  as  usual :P but I'm  getting bored  writing an intro..... xD

Yes, yes. Mounted archer  is her speciality. With some decent abilities, she is
adept at slaying  her  enemies from afar. Her abilities  shine  at  team  games
(Trueshot Aura and Starfall), but ranged hero always has same weak point....low
HP and physical strength...as she is. But her inner power is adequate enough to
cover her weak points.

Anyway, she is the only one who can cast AoE  damage  dealer  in  her  Ultimate
skill, so this what makes her good since AoE spells have -somehow- high usage.

Native skills are possessed directly without  any   condition. They  allow PotM
to do somehing more than just casting spells.

- SA improves her acquisition range at higher level.
- Owl scout is invulnerable and also air unit.
- Starfall's AoE is capped at 1000,  with 50 damage each wave in 1.50 interval.
  Does less damamge to buildings and heroes.
- I do not list the Hotkeys because of that costumized hotkeys feature.

[9b]. Priestess of the Moon's Skills analysis + Skills Build
------------------------------------------------------------

Skills Analysis
---------------

Searing Arrows
--------------

Advantages and disadvantages:

+ Can be set  to  Auto-cast   mode  thus enables you to fire it at will without
using hotkeys or place your mouse again.

+ Improves  her   acquisition range   at higher level thus she becomes a better
slayer as her spell grows powerful.

+ Has  good  synergy  with  Trueshot Aura since both spells add a good chunk of
damage to her attack.

+ This spell affects building as well.

+ NO cooldown. You can shoot this arrow anytime you want to.

- Mana cost is too expensive if this is used repeatedly.

- Has limited  usage   against  some units, ex: Spirit Walker in ethereal form,
since this deals physical damage only EVEN Searing Arrow itself is a spell :(

Usages:

- Just use auto fire after you have learned the spell, make sure you do not run
out of your mana if you intend to do so.

- There's no particular  usage  for   this  spell since it only enhances PotM's
acquisition range and attack power.

- Don't use this while creeping, you only waste your valuable mana.


Scout
-----

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Very effective for scouting (This is why this spell is called 'scout').

+ Fast cooldown, you don't have to wait the Owl effect to  wear off prematurely
before you can cast another one.

+ No cast range.

- If this spell does not mastered, it's rather useless, put   at least 2 points
so as you can feel the advantage.

- Does not have any effect against enemy units,  except being seen by you, well
Owl cannot do any damage, it's the major drawback.

Usages:

- Use this   spell  to   catch   hero and  order  the scout to  follow  him/her
indefenitely thus this will give you   an advantage   because you  can see your
opponent's hero(es) movement at will.

- You can also catch invisible units, owl can sees them.

- Backdoor!   Since most common build position for Human, Undead, and Orc is to
protect their villagers, you  can  bypass the obstacles by using this  spell to
scout and harass them safely.


Trueshot Aura
-------------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ Passive aura, meaning no mana cost and actively used. YAY!

+ Quite BIG AoE.

+ Has big percentage improvement at each level.

- Does not affects melee units' damage.

Usages:
-------

- Learn this spell and forget it. >_<


Starfall
--------

Advantages and Disadvantages:

+ AoE spell, perhaps the strongest AoE spell in the game.

+ Affects magic  immune and ethereal units  as well. With this  you can  simply
blow  your  enemy's   entire  fleet all  by herself  if  they  do not   provide
countermeasure against Starfall.

- High mana cost, but you can still rely on your Moon Wells to fill her mana.

- Channeling s pell  so   it  can be interrupted easily if you're not  prepared
against it, and also since  PotM must stand there doing nothing, this spell can
be easily avoided by just stay away from her.

- Slow cooldown.

Usages:

- Please just cast this spell   in  BATTLE only. it's useless when cast outside
battle.


Skills Build
------------

There are  several  options  building  your PotM's skills. You must  choose the
right one  in each battle depending  on your enemy' starting hero or race. Fail
to do so will  get you bad result. Example of this hero's common usage is in NE
mirror or  team  battle, you can't  use this  against experienced Human, Orc or
Undead players because  PotM is  no   match   for   their heroes EVEN with  her
strongest party, Mass Huntresses.

1. Scout, Trueshot Aura (Scouter)
   This is the skill builds' order:
   - lv1 -> Scout
   - lv2 -> TA
   - lv3 -> Scout
   - lv4 -> TA
   - lv5 -> TA
   - lv6 -> Starfall
   - lv7 -> Scout
   - lv8 -> SA
   - lv9 -> SA
   - lv10-> SA
   Description: We need to alternate between Scout   and Trueshot   Aura skill,
   since lv 2 and lv 3 scout do not have  extreme improvent, you can safely add
   your fifth point to Aura. Use Scout early to evade creepjacked situation and
   increases the chance to creepjacking your foe.

2. Scout, Searing Arrows (Leader)
   - lv1 -> SA
   - lv2 -> Scout
   - lv3 -> SA
   - lv4 -> Scout
   - lv5 -> SA
   - lv6 -> Starfall
   - lv7 -> TA
   - lv8 -> TA
   - lv9 -> TA
   - lv10-> Scout
   Description: SA   will  be   stressed   to   quickly take   advantage of its
   powerstrike. As long as you keep your  mana  in its  peak  there would be no
   serious delay in your harrassment  strategy. Yep, you  can  still  use  this
   build to  harass   due   to   Scout  skill. Basically  strategy #1 and #2 do
   not have too much difference except the former is stronger for your army but
   weaker for your hero while the latter is the opposite.

3. Searing Arrows, Trueshot Aura (Slayer)
   - lv1 -> TA
   - lv2 -> SA
   - lv3 -> SA
   - lv4 -> TA
   - lv5 -> TA
   - lv6 -> Starfall
   - lv7 -> SA
   - lv8 -> Scout
   - lv9 -> Scout
   - lv10-> Scout
   Description: The most  powerful build if compared with the two builds above,
   but can be spammed or  abused at your will since you don't have to  worry to
   cast Scout, so   keep autocasting Searing Arrow. This can deal good chunk of
   damage in battle, but try to keep her away and don't let focus fire comes to
   your PotM.

You should choose Starfall at lv 6 / 7

Conclusion:
----------

Her skills are pretty good, many  combinations  can be  used  to find different
play sytles. But still  that would  requires  practice  and patience for you to
master this hero mainly her positioning and movement.

Let's take a brief look again at status table.

This is her stats at LEVEL 1:

+========+====================================================================+

Here I go, analyzing every aspect of PotM as usual...


Analysis:
---------

- (Str gain) 35-18= 17. Uh,  do   you  wish to me for praise her because of her
worthless physical body? Yea,   neither  I nor you  would   want to. Anyway she
still has an   advantages due to her superior  acquisition range   but   you'll
desperately   need Health Potion and Invulnerable Potion to keep her at battle,
or some health tomes would help her IMMENSELY if you're lucky enough.

- (Agi gain) 32-19= 13. What? 13 points? Even KotG can perform  better  in this
area. Picking an Agility type but doesn't have enough points to improve its own
ability, that's  laughable. This  proves  a  point  that  PotM  is  the slowest
developing hero in Night Elf's altar.

- (Int gain) 38-15= 23.   Well, at  least  she has advantage over her  int gain
mainly because she can spam her Searing Arrows  without worry  about run out of
mana. High Int also allows her to cast Starfall easily.

- (Health) As you  can  see, she has barely 975 health points at level 10, very
different even  when compared  to  the two  weakest  NE heroes, Warden or KotG.
Demon Hunter has   Metamorphosis spell that allows him to gains another 500 hit
points while Warden doesn't have such skill but she also have rather high armor
and hit  points. KotG,   which is cosidered the most weakest NE hero physically
has upper hand because   of   his Entangling Roots that allow him to escape the
dangerous situation.

- (Mana) She has quite adequate amount   of Mana. But it won't  hurt to improve
this part by using potions or +stat point items.

- (Damage) Pathetic attack speed so don't  rely  too  much on her attacks...but
her physical attack can be improved by her Arrows and Trueshot Aura.

- (Armor) ....For a ranged hero, her armor   is somewhat decent, but you cannot
rely on her physical attributes  so   it'd  be best for you to carry some rings
/armor enhancement rings.


Conclusion:
----------

She has bad final stats with the worst  beginning stats  and nothing you can do
except trying to improve her by some decent equipment. Also  her nature doesn't
allow her to fight hand to hand with MANY heroes in Warcraft 3, a bit hypocryte
but this hero perhaps the weakest hero in Night Elf altar.


-----------------------------------------
[9d]. Priestess of the Moon's Weak points
-----------------------------------------

PotM, like the other NE's female hero, Warden, has way tooooo  many weaknesses.
Similar to Warden but with even worse weak points because she isn't  physically
as strong as Warden is.

- She must not nuked. Do so will crush your PotM. Examples of 'nukes':
        *) Undead's Tri-Nuke: Frost Nova, Death Coil and Impale
           Description      : The best nuke in The Frozen Throne universe. Just
                              don't  let  her  accept  direct  hit  from  those
                              spells. Usually this can be  solved by Anti-Magic
                              Potion or Invulnerable pots.
        *) MK + Blood Mage  : War Stomp and Storm Bolt + Banish
           Description      : Avoid these spells! Just don't come  near MK  and
                              you should be fine. Do not use Invul pot, as long
                              as you keep your distance, it will be fine  since
                              MK is so slow and   have  low  mana points.  Just
                              watch out  for Banish which  improves  the damage
                              from spell attacks alot!
        *) Orc's Nuke       : Chain Lightning and Shockwave
           Description      : If you take these two spells directly, guaranteed
                              that    your  PotM  will  have  her  life  points
                              reduced considerably. Use invis pot or Anti Magic
                              Potion will prevent this.
        *) Warden's SS+ FoK : Shadow Strike + Physical Hit + Fans
           Description      : SS is too powerful at lv 3, chance that you won't
                              even survive  3  hits  from it, mainly because of
                              its  fast  cooldown as well.   Use   Invulnerable
                              Potion if she starts spamming the spell at you.

- She must not be   focus-fired.   Low HP and Armor make her very vulnerable to
  this attack type.

- Don't let her being  caught by Net or Roots.   This   will lead to Focus Fire
  attack type and ultimately to nukes.

- Avoid   Curse   spell   (Banshee), that will weaken her severely. Use Dryads'
  Abolish Magic to dispel the effect.

- Avoid Slow  spell   (Sorceress),   that will weaken her severely. Use Dryads'
  Abolish Magic to dispel the effect.

- Don't try to beat melee heroes one by one, you can't  even hurt  him/her hard
  enough due to your slow attack speed and weak attack power EVEN with Trueshot
  Aura and Searing Arrows enabled.

- Demon Hunter! His Mana Burn   is   annoying, besides he is much much stronger
  than W  arden   (physically). But quite different from Warden, PotM can still
  relies with her Aura so you might still beat him unlike Warden.

- Blademaster's Critical Strike.

- Any hero with 'summon'  skill (ex: Beastmaster or Far Seer) can destroys low-
  level PotM,   even if   you   are   able to kill the hero, your PotM would be
  severely damaged.


-------------------------------------------
[9e]. Priestess of the Moon's Strong points
-------------------------------------------

She does not have weakness only, of course. She also has some decent advantages
over another heroes, be not disheartened, folks!

+ Shadowmeld! you  can place   an  ambush   using this skill. Of course it will
require patience and skill. But worth to try.

+ Fast  movement   speed,   this what you need to pursue and kill most of enemy
units, unless you engage them directly in open combat.

+ Great minor and normal units slayer. She can beat off a weak unit like Priest
or Banshee with   little   difficulty   because there's no need for her to come
nearer and   get  focus fire. Why? because of her superior acquisition range of
course, since with it she can take position and aim freely.

+ Her  Trueshot   Aura  has added value in her skill set because she herself is
affected by it, and  in   TEAM  BATTLES   this one is the most useful skill for
powering up your armies together.

+ Have 'Owl Scout' Skill,   which allows her to scout her enemies easily, and I
mean 'easily' seriously. Owl   is the best   scouting   skill    in this  game,
especially if added with   Hutress' Owl. You   can make  an ambush and surprise
attack as often as you want because you are more prepared than your enemy.

+ Very compatible with Mass Muntresses strategy due to   her  Trueshot Aura and
Searing Arrows, or even better if you can amass Dryads as well.

+ Her ultimate is decent, possibly the best   AoE damage dealer spell for Night
Elf.


-----------------------------------
[9f]. Priestess of the Moon's Items
-----------------------------------

PotM also need items and consumables to  help perform better in battlefield. If
Demon Hunter which is considered as  Night Elf's strongest hero needs item, why
should PotM otherwise?


Consumables:
-----------

- Scroll of Town Portal
  Undoubtely   the   most   useful item   in   this game.   You   can transport
  back to your main town simply by double clicking the scroll's portrait.

- Healing Potion
  Sold cheaply for 150 gold. Buy one of this   item  will improve your   PotM's
  survivalability greatly.

- Greater Healing Potion
  (same as Healing Potion)

- Invulnerable Potion
  You can use this item   to   take   a  breath temporarily and thus reposition
  yourself   if   you're under focus fire. We'll need her as long as she can so
  there's no need to tank all the damage   by yourself, this where Invul Potion
  comes in handy. But sadly, casting Starfall DOES remove invulnerable effect.

- Scroll of Protection
  Useful in battles, sold at shop. +2 armor in AoE is virtually nice  since you
  can improve your units armor  temporarily and help you r army  turn the tide.
  You can use this item for Mass Huntresses or Mass Archers battle.

- Scroll of Healing
  Pretty damn nice for mass healing,  especially   when  you  run  out  of your
  moonwells' mana. Best used to Mass Huntress tactic since you   won't have any
  healer except your moonwells.


Useless consumables:
--------------------

- Clarity Potion
  This cheap item have helped me much in the past, regains 100  mana unless hit
  by another units. But you won't need this item anyway, chance  that you won't
  deplete your mana pool unless you keep  spamming  her  Searing  Arrows. If
  you do so, it'd be better to carry Mana Potion.

- Mana Potion
  Unless you don't plan to use her spell, you'll most   likely need this potion
  to keep her spamming her spells.

You don't need those two items above. Just stick  with the previous entries and
some decent equipments (see below).


Equipments:
----------

- Staff of Preservation
  Most Night Elf players will bring this  thingy, even just one. This staff can
  be your dear saviour, especially to s ave  hero  and bears. Since  PotM  only
  need little micro (unlike Lich or Archmage, for example), you can concentrate
  your energy to preserve your units.

- Circlet of Nobility
  if you happen find some on your creeping time,  don't sell them. Most players
  sell this item for measly gold, this is  useless. +2 stats gain for ALL power
  is a nice addition for her.

- Gloves of Haste
  Very excellent item for her, you rely  on  her  physical attack. + 15% attack
  speed will cause a havoc in your opponents armies.

- Boots of Speed
  Well, if you have enough gold,   please buy   this item. She   will need this
  badly because she has no killer spell like Shadow Strike or Entangling Roots.
  You'll need this item to catch  with  your opponent's speed and massacre them
  from behind.

- Helm of Cunning and Helm of Valor
  Don't sell these items if you happen to meet one. +4 stats  improvements  are
  good.

- Runed Bracers
  This cheap little proggie  is able  to reduce the  spell  attacks. Have it at
  your inventory if possible.

- Pendant of Mana or Pendant of Energy
  Mana  enchancements  are  needed to spam her SA.

- Staff of Silence
  You might want to keep this to silence those spellcasters and heroes' spells
  temporarily.

- Talisman of Evasion
  Unlike DH who doesn't need  this item, having one at your  inventory could be
  proven very  valuable  if you want your PotM  to fight in front line as long
  as possible. But this item is rather rare, more's the pity.

- Any Aura-related equips
  ex:     The Lion Horn of Stormwind,   Scourge Bone Chimes,  Legion Doom-Horn,
  Khadgar's Pipe of Insight,   Ancient Janggo of Endurance,  Alleria's Flute of
  Accuracy.


Useless equipments:
-------------------

- Any Orb
  Particularly useful to hit   that air unit. But she's already ranged hero and
  have attachment in her   arrow   (Searing Arrows) so there's no need to bring
  this item also.

[9g]. Priestess of the Moon's Threats and Preys
-----------------------------------------------

Blew it, lets see her opponents one by one, as usual :P It took a long time for
me to create this section for our beloved ..... err no our  damned Priestess of
the Moon...


Bad against:
------------

- Demon Hunter
  His main skill is Mana Burn and Evasion, which are  quite annoying  but won't
  hurt  you  severely  but  at lv  3 Mana  Burn  will take  most  of  your mana
  away (150 points). He  also  has insane  Evasion, which  allows him  to avoid
  PotM's physical attacks and since you rely on her arrows, this skill would be
  your worst hindrance and nothing  you can do to stop it. While  his  ultimate
  can crush  his  opponents  to mincemeat, true....Metamorphosis is unbeatable.
  Well folks, at lv 10 he can  beat down Blademaster (also lv 10 of course :P )
  like no tomorrow, so how can you expect anymore from PotM?
  Difficulty: 10/10

- Death Knight (Undead)
  You  cannot  engage  him alone, instead pick up  Huntress, two  or three, and
  start attacking him. Be careful if  you  go  creeping though, because  he can
  easily harass you and steal your precious  experience. SA works best, or  you
  could pick up Scout and watch his movement while creeping/ expanding. As long
  as you're not creepjacked or ambushed, you can deny his progress easily. Just
  beware of his Coils and Unholy Aura while microing your dying units (or  your
  Priestess :/ ) as with them he can easily kill your units.
  Difficulty: 9/10

- Tauren Chieftain (Orc)
  Huh? Trying to beat him  away with your  PotM only? Are you joking? Watch him
  from distance and  try  to attack whenever possible. Remember, Shockwave  and
  War Stomp Combo are terrible ones.....
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Blademaster (Orc)
  First of all, handle  and  beat  his Windwalk first. He fits  to be placed as
  first  hero  and  for  harassing  (Wind Walk). As long  as  you  buy  Dust of
  Appearance at the beginning of the game, you  should  be fine. Don't  let him
  kills your wisps and avoid direct battle with him (one by one, because he has
  Critical Strike) until you gain enough level to  survive few  of his attacks.
  His ultimate  is not  counted....easily avoided,   so Focus  fire  and try to
  surround him when he runs out his mana :x don't ever try to surround him with
  decent amount of  mana  remaining, chance that you can't even surround him as
  he flies with ...Wind Walk :P
  Difficulty: 8/10

- Mountain King
  Watch out his spells, best to bring some healing potions here in case he will
  nuke your  PotM. Focus  fire  him and  autocast Sering Arrow would do. But be
  prepared for a long fight due to his HIGH HP and insane durability, and don't
  engage him directly with your Priestess  as she's not made for direct combat,
  :P instead watch him  from  distance and try  to  attack  whenever  possible.
  Remember, Storm Bolt and War Stomp Combo are terrible ones.....
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Pandaren (Neutral)
  Bah! I've  seen  a  replay  where a decent  NE  player got  destroyed  single
  handedly when he was using PotM against Panda. This can be seen easily at  lv
  6 heroes' duel where  Priestess  can  do  nothing, absolutely nothing against
  Panda's  ultimate. Try  to  keep  your  distance  from him while  continually
  hitting him with your SA.
  Difficulty: 10/10


Prolly against:
---------------

Any strength hero is a decent foe for PotM (and also some agility heroes).

- Dreadlord (Undead)
  Very terrible opponent due to his sleep  and  surround tactics. Best to avoid
  at early game and build your troops quickly. Few Huntresses will keep him and
  his  ghoul  army  at bay. Spam SA as much as you can before dealing with  his
  army. Be sure to pick some TP to avoid  getting  killed with surround tactic.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Lich (Undead)
  I put Lich here because of his exceptional Frost Nova and Dark Ritual. He may
  easily spamming Nova due to his mana recovery and supported by  Ritual. These
  two spells are deadly combination, and even more  deadly if he has Death Coil
  for DK. Be prepared to put some countermeasure, ex: Anti Magic Potion is used
  as soon as you enter the battle with Lich inside. Be wary however, if he uses
  Frost  Armor, you might strike him with less damage since absorbs your attack
  with his armor, better  to strike  his  units  first, but  you can still cast
  Searing Arrows continously and gain upper hand for he's an intelligence hero
  and does not have high HP.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Crypt Lord (Undead)
  I hate his impale. Even the effects usually wear off in a  second,  but since
  his spell is used only to  hold  PotM temporarily (part of  the  Undead's Tri
  Nuke) I find it difficult to avoid this  spell without item support. So avoid
  direct hit from his attacks and spells. Continous strikes from SA should help
  weaken his HP.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Archmage (Human)
  Only his Water  Elemental  that counts,  the rest  of his spells are  useless
  against PotM. Activate SA and focus fire im would do.
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Paladin (Human)
  He has  Divine Shield and Devotion Aura, also with decent HP. Beat him before
  he  reaches  high  level hero, since you  will  find  only trouble due to his
  shield and ultimate (Resurrection).
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Pit Lord (Undead, Neutral)
  Mmmmmmmmm, it won't take a long time to beat this hero, just  patience needed
  because like another str heroes, he has high HP.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Dark Ranger (Undead, Neutral)
  Ah, her minions are trouble especially if she have huge numbers of them, stay
  out till her skellys are down. Silence and Health  Drain  are not  serious as
  she doesn't need to cast spells  that badly, SA her  to kill her easily. Just
  be careful if you want to cast Starfall :), remember her Silence.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Firelord (Neutral)
  Firelord usually used as second hero and thus  placed on low - level hero. No
  real threat from his  spells, except  Lava  Spawn (Summon spell, not hard but
  annoying). His Lava Burn and Incinerate do not considered as a threat for me,
  as well as his ultimate. You  can  try  either focus fire or surround tactic,
  but the latter is quite hard to do because he's also ranged hero.
  Difficulty: 7/10

- Beastmaster (Neutral)
  Don't engage his  summons, doing so may injure your PotM severely. But  don't
  engage their  masters  hand-to-hand also,  you  can  do hit-and-run tactic if
  possible because your acquisition range should enable you to do this trick.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10

- Warden (Night Elf)
  You have better fire-raneg so use it to your advantage. She can reach you via
  Shadow Strike only if you keep a good distance from her.  Anyway, if  you  do
  meet him  then  you're  doing  Night  Elf  Mirror so  you  could  always  use
  Huntresses to keep her at bay while you dealing SA damage to her. She'll down
  after ten shots or so, not so hard.
  Difficulty: 7.5/10


Good against:
-------------

- Far Seer (Orc)
  Don't engage his wolves, instead  use wisp  to kill them (detonate) while you
  focus your attention  to Far Seer. Most Orc player will use Far Seer as first
  hero because of his superior creeping  skills  (due to wolves). SA works best
  for him since he does not  possess tanker  skills  like Tauren Chieftain, use
  Blink to chase him if he  runs away. But best  to  avoid his Chain Lightning,
  it hurts...
  Difficulty: 6.5/10

- Shadow Hunter (Orc)
  His Healing Wave  and  Hex are  the  most  annoying parts. He can  heals  his
  wounded  units  and  Hex  your  Warden. While  using Hex, decent orc  players
  usually surround your PotM with Speed  Scroll and  forces you to  Tp-ing, but
  this doesn't be considered as a big deal if you have TP. He has slow movement
  and attacking speed, also low HP and useless ultimate.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Keeper of the Grove (Night Elf)
  Watch out his Entagling Roots, while his Treants  should be  dealt  with your
  troops not your Warden. Buy Health Potion  when  facing this hero, his Thorns
  Aura is  hurt. But he  usually  isn't used  as  first hero, especially  in NE
  mirror, so you won't see him high-leveled enough to trouble your PotM.
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

- Blood Mage (Human)
  Okay, this is  the  most  pathetic  hero ever exist..... :P His Flame Pillars
  does decent damage, but  slow animation and slow casting time makes it easily
  avoided. His Siphon Mana and Banish don't  help him much, also he have rather
  low HP, so SA can kill this guy easily.
  Difficulty: 4/10

- Alchemist (Neutral)
  Healing Spray,  Acid Bomb, Chemical Rage  and  Transmute....are  not  seen as
  powerful spells for me. But his primary attribute is str, that what makes him
  rather  difficult  to  kill. SA works  wonder  for this guy. Be wary  however
  , usually this hero is used  as a  support only not main hero, so if  there's
  another heroes in battle deal with them first!
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Tinker (Neutral)
  His Pocket Factory is a decent  spell  so as  his ultimate (Robo-Goblin). But
  he's an int hero, so low HP is his  friend. take  him  down quickly before he
  gains a level.
  Difficulty: 5/10

- Naga Sea Witch (Neutral)
  This hero is awesome to  become  Warden's  partner, but if you meet her as an
  opponent, blast   her  with SA. She  will  die   pretty  quickly. It's   true
  that she possesses Mana Shield, but  most WC3  players  ignore this skill and
  get  Cold Arrows and Fork Ligtning, so you can safely  nuke  her  without any
  real resistance (except items, of course xD )
  Difficulty: 5.5/10

[9h]. Priestess of the Moon's Maps Analysis
-------------------------------------------

Most of  PotM player  will  only use at  certain maps  OR in NE mirror only, so
these map  list will  be rather  different  than another NE hero's map as she's
cannot be used properly at certain maps which isn't suited to her.

- Lost Temple, Avalanche, Twisted Meadow, Turtle Rock
  Those maps usually used for teamgames, and this  is where PotM really shines.
  You can expand  and  harass  quickly  with  Mass Huntresses strategy which is
  incredibly  useful because they can be created at lv 1 town hall and Hunter's
  Hall. Learn  Trueshot  Aura for sure! You can  get upper hand even with small
  increased attack power. The maps  above  have expansion  goldmine, so you can
  always stick to early expo strategy.

[10]. Compatibility                                                      [COMP]
===============================================================================

Wew, at first I  didn't even  think this  part/section  would be  this  huge. I
basically wrote  every possible  situations  down as I play  through  the  game
repeatedly and finally, I placed this part in its own section.

These  tables (I hope this is the LAST  table part for this FAQ)  describe  the
compatibility for  each hero, whether  he/she is worthy enough to be trained as
1st, 2nd or 3rd  hero  or not in  ALL  maps (average) and  also  for  different
occasions  and events such as for team battle and tavern teammate. This section
is  affected  greatly  with my  playstyle  and  experience though some of these
informations are no 100% correct but these can be used as a basis of your game.

NOTE: - (Name Convention)
      WD= Warden,
      PotM= Priestess of the Moon,
      DH= Demon Hunter,
      KotG= Keeper of the Grove,
      NS= Naga Sea Witch,
      TK= Tinker,
      DR= Dark Ranger,
      FL- Firelord,
      BMT= Beastmaster,
      ALC= Alchemist,
      PD= Panda.

      - (Score Convention)
      A= Good,
      B= Average,
      C= Bad.

      - This table is dynamically changed. For example, if  you  meet DH  while
      you  use Warden  as your  first  hero, then the  score  would be  changed
      to 'C' instantly. So  this table  only shows the  most common  situation,
      you can pick different score each time, based  from your enemy's and your
      ally's   power. Also don't  forget, this is  based  from  my knowledge so
      don't flame.

Don't say I didn't remind you..... However if you somehow get confused, there's
always 'Glossary' section at hand. :D


In order of training table:
---------------------------

* First hero means you choose that hero as your first choice, second hero means
you choose that hero  as  your second choice, and  third hero  means you choose
that  hero  as your  third  choice  regardless  your other heroes at that game.

+------+-------------+---------------+--------------+
| Hero | First Hero  |  Second Hero  |  Third Hero  |
+------+-------------+---------------+--------------+
| WD   |      A      |      C        |       C      |
+------+-------------+---------------+--------------+
| PotM |      B      |      B        |       B      |

+------+-------------+---------------+--------------+
| KotG |      C      |      A        |       A      |
+------+-------------+---------------+--------------+

Analysis:
---------

- Warden:
  *) As  first hero, she  is dependable at  different challenges and occasions.
However  she is somewhat limited due to her rather weak physical attributes and
also because she  relies  heavily on her spells. If  you use  her as first hero
however, you must pick your skills build carefully  because  some setup may not
work  in some  situations. For  example for Mass Gargoyles and Mass Spellcaster
strategies, it would  be better  if you  choose Extreme Nuke or AoE Abuse skill
buld  rather  than Hero  Hunter because you'll need multiple target to be dealt
with. Most of Warden's user wrongly  pick her skill build and end up in defeat,
and  the next  time  they play Warcraft again they will say "she's sucks, don't
use her!". This  remark  is  totally  wrong, don't despise  her  because of her
appearance only for I've seen some Warcraft III pros destroyed  their opponents
by using single Warden only.
  *) As second hero, she perhaps  cannot be leveled up high  enough to make her
as a shield due  to  your first  hero (DH perhaps). High leveled  Warden causes
huge causalities by her Fan of Knives and Shadow Strike, but if you can't level
her up, she only  becomes  your burden except in some circumtances for example:
Mass Air or Mass Melee  units. Try to  not  use her as second  her if possible.
  *) As third  hero, don't  ever try it. Chance  that you will only waste money
and food limit.

- Demon Hunter:
  *) As first hero, he's a good harasser, nice tanker and strong damage dealer.
Once you've adopted his style, you'll be unstoppable. If your  opponent  relies
too much on melee units, you should use him as  your first  because  Night  Elf
lacks in meatshield (except  Bears  and  Mountain  Giant) mainly because of his
Evasion and good  armors. If  your  opponent's  massing  air unit, buy  an  Orb
immediately because he's also good at  destroying  air  units due to their weak
hit points and DH's insane attack speed. The only minus  point  in  using  this
hero as your first hero is that he lacks killer spell so you might be unable to
kill that one-last hit unit... (example: orc's peon who's hiding at his  burrow
before you hit him with your physical attack with one hit left...)
  *) As second hero, Quite good but you'll need to level him up quickly because
we need his Evasion and   Mana Burn ASAP. Tou should know who's your first hero
that is capable to hold  out   your base until you can train him. Night Elf has
very good speed at teching BUT   lacks meatshield. So if  you  get  overwhelmed
vefore you can train him, basically you're screwed....
  *) As third hero, better not to train him as your third hero unless you  have
a good reason to.

- Keeper of the Grove:
  *) As first hero, harassing your opponent's peons/ workers and  kill  one  or
two would be a good start since you  can always go back to replenish your mana.
However before picking  him  up, see whether your opponent use DH or BM or not,
if yes, then you should refrain from using him. Quite a  good  hero  when  used
with Huntresses + Glaive Throwers for quick victory.
  *) As second hero, Very powerful as supporter. Since probably you'd use Demon
Hunter or Warden as your first hero, this guy could cover as an important asset
for your team.
  *) As third hero, Unlike another Night Elf   heroes, this   guy is  very damn
compatible   as   a  supporter. His  abilities  are  really useful when used as
disabler.

- Priestess of the Moon:
  *) As first hero, when used in  teamgames, she  really  shines  in  terms  of
teamwork. Her abilities such as Scout and Trueshot Aura are  powerful  arsenal.
If she's leveled up high enough  and  able  to  hit  Ultimate  Spell, Starfall,
practically she's insane if your opponents cannot stop channeling spell.
  *) As second hero, quite  nice  supporter   because   of her aura and Searing
Arrow. You could use her if you rely on ranged units such as dryads. Even at lv
1 , Trueshot Aura is so damn powerful.
  *) As third hero, same as the explanation above.



Solo, Duet or Trio heroes compatibility table:
----------------------------------------------

* This table describes how  well  she/he is when working alone or in team BASED
game from their spells and natural skills.

+------+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| Hero |      1      |      2      |       3     |

| KotG |      C      |      B      |       A     |
+------+-------------+-------------+-------------+

Analysis:
---------

- Warden:
  * Solo: Extremely decent when working alone (except against few heroes).
  * Tag : Quite good when she's paired with COMPATIBLE partner.
  * Team: Bad, avoid this etup unless you're a gosu at WC3. :D

- Demon Hunter:
  * Solo: Extremely decent when working alone (except against few heroes).
  * Tag : Still decent as he was. :P
  * Team: -.- still good as he was (again).

- Priestess of the Moon:
  * Solo: Good decent when working alone (except against few heroes).
  * Tag : Good as supporter. With nice aura and some nifty spells.
  * Team: Good as supporter. With nice aura and some nifty spells.

- Keeper of the Grove:
  * Solo: Bad when he's a soloer.
  * Tag : Good as supporter. With nice aura and some nifty spells.
  * Team: Undependable.


Compatibility with Tavern heroes table:
---------------------------------------

* This table assumes you choose your hero as FIRST hero. The purpose is to show
you these heroes' compatibilty as your second or third hero choice.

+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+
| Hero |  NS  |  TK  |  DR  |  FL  |  BMT  |  ALC  |  PD   |
+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+
| WD   |  A   |  C   |   C  |   B  |   B   |   C   |   A   |
+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+
| PotM |  B   |  C   |   A  |   A  |   B   |   C   |   A   |
+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+
| DH   |  A   |  C   |   B  |   B  |   B   |   C   |   A   |
+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+
| KotG |  C   |  C   |   B  |   B  |   B   |   C   |   A   |
+------+------+------+------+------+-------+-------+-------+

Analysis:
---------

Lets take a look at the table above. You can see Panda's scores which are (with
its   respective  partner  as listed) A, A, A, A (Wd, PotM, DH, KotG). It means
that   Panda sure  has  the  highest  compatibility with NE's heroes due to his
natural  skills, Drunken  Haze  and  Breath  of Fire which are useful at ALMOST
every occasions. But the case is  very  different  with Alchemist (ALC) You can
see Alchemist's scores which  are ,with its respective partner as listed, C, C,
C, C (Wd, PotM, DH, KotG). It means that Alchemist has the lowest compatibility
with  NE's  heroes  due  to his  natural skills, Healing Spray, Acid Bombs  and
Chemical  Rage  which do  not have any synergy with  another  NE heroes spells.
Picking a partner from Tavern is rather conservative playstyle but it will make
your strategy is more difficult  to read  by your  opponents. Please  also note
that this table can only be used  in certain maps with tavern building enabled,
so don't use this table at Lost Temple....

With this table also, we can see that PotM who is considered awful in solo, has
decent compatibility with Tavern Heroes, because some of  them  is  ranged hero
(Drow Ranger, Firelord  and  Naga  Sea) so  Trueshot  Aura  renders practically
useful while  in return, Firelord and Drow Ranger gives PotM a good meatshield,
as for  their  summons  -Lava Spawn and Skeletons- can be spawned indefinitely.

This choice is entirely up to you, but seriously you'll need tons of experience
and  experiments to  know which Tavern  Heroes t hat are best to be tagged with
your NE hero.


Heroes compatibility to be used for creeping:
---------------------------------------------

* This table  assumes  you  use  your  hero to creeping. The purpose is to show
you these heroes  compatibility to  be  used  for  creeping (solo) at the early
game or later game -with necessary units to help him/ her of course- , just use
this table when you go creeping no  matter when or where. Creeping is essential
to make your hero stronger  and  for  collecting useful items and equipments as
for  some  situations  you cannot get certain items at shop, only from creep. I
split the creep's stat  at  three  level, green camp, yellow camp and red camp.
Green Camp is  consisted  with weak units like gnoll and forest trapper, Yellow
Camp  contains   stronger and higher level of creeps like  berserker troll, Red
Camp is consisted with strongest units like Dragons.

+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| Hero   |  Green  |  Yellow |   Red   |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| WD     |    A    |    A    |    B    |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| PotM   |    B    |    B    |    C    |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| DH     |    A    |    A    |    A    |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| KotG   |    B    |    B    |    C    |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+

Analysis:
---------

- Warden:
  * Picking Warden isn't bad idea. But she requires even  more practice than DH
who is physically stronger and harder. You may need some more precaution as she
dies pretty quickly as  tanker in  front  of  creeps though. Don't  forget that
she's  melee  hero  thus  she  couldn't  beat  air  units  without Orbs , she's
quite  balanced and strong, just don't spam her spell needlessly  for creeping.

- Demon Hunter:
  * Perhaps  this  is  the most  balanced  hero ever made.  His  durability  is
dependable, and his  skills can be pulled out effectively at creeping. Except a
fact that he's melee  hero (thus he couldn't beat air units without Orbs), he's
extremely balanced and strong.

- Keeper of the Grove:
  * Rather lacking creeping power, at least. You  could  use  him as tanker but
don't take excessive  damage  since he dies quickly from focus fire due to  his
pathetic Health Points. Still, his  aura can be very useful for attacking melee
creeps. Try not to overuse is ER for creeping as he's VERY very mana dependant.
If you spend all of your mana on creeping, what can he do next?

- Priestess of the Moon:
  * Nah, comparable to Keeper of the Grove. Not much here to be  said. But  you
can have some advantages from  her  Trueshot Aura which is always active. Also,
SA can always be used for creeping, unlike ER. Her armor is higher than KotG so
you can use her as tanker quite a bit.


SHORT SUMMANRY:
---------------

+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| Hero   |  Power  |  Speed  |   Magic |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+
| WD     |    B    |    A    |    A    |
+--------+---------+---------+---------+

+--------+---------+---------+---------+


Conclusion:
-----------

Night Elf heroes have high compatibility  with  each others, meaning  that each
hero covers other heroes weakness. You must pick and choose your hero  based on
the situations, try not to be ruled by your opponent. The table above should be
able to give you brief introduction about this.

I'm trying to describe this  area  at the  best  of my  knowledge, if  you have
suggestions or comments  to  help  me improve this section, drop me an email :D

[11]. Frequently Asked Questions                                          [FAQ]
===============================================================================

Well, some of you perhaps, have common questions about this FAQ and the Author,
so I decide to put this section here. You have to thank her to this convenience
, and thus save your precious time for emailing her. :P


(FAQ RELATED QUESTIONS)
-----------------------

1) Why is this Characters' FAQ, why don't you write for walkthrough?

Answer: Simple, I've seen several walkthrough hanging  around  GameFAQs' FAQs &
Guide Section (Warcraft 3 TFT) and didn't bother to add  another one. But  when
I was trying to find a good strategy for Night Elf heroes, I couldn't find any.
Yes, there are Night Elf Strategy Guides floating around, two in fact, but they
do not contain ANY strategy for heroes especially Night Elf  heroes. Soooooooo,
why don't I try  to pick this area and write one complete  FAQ? Beside that, as
for me, I  find so  much  fun  writing in-depth FAQ than Walkthrough, because I
don't   have  time  to write  the said  FAQ   while play the game itself at the
same time....


2) Do you intend to update this FAQ?

Answer: Yes, technically. Unlike   other  games  which tend to   have   similar
'passion' from time to time, Warcraft 3 offers  good  gameplay and depth amount
of   knowledge. They  may  be  changed in  the  future  because  the developers
(Blizzard Entertainment) are always releasing new pacthes at some point, either
to fix the bugs  ,ironic, isn't  it?  or to fix   balance issues, so  I have to
update this FAQ to reflect the changes.


3) Why Night Elf Heroes FAQ and not other races' heroes FAQ?

Answer: Night Elf is my favourite race thus far, and so I wish to dedicate some
of my time to write a FAQ as a   return for  them xD Besides, I've played Night
Elf for hundred of hours, far more longer than another race....But  lately, I'm
also thinking  about   writing a FAQ for Orc, Human, and Undead heroes. You may
expect it if I'm not that busy :P soon.


4) I have different   opinions   than yours which are written above. Can I tell
you mine?

Answer: Gladly. Send me an email, if I find your  opinions are valuable I could
post them here, the credits  still  belong  to you. But  seriously, emailing me
about junk opinions, flames  and false informations will get you trouble. Don't
bother to try it! The  information  above  are written based on my knowledge ,I
shamelessly   call it as 'skill', so don't  try  to  argue  with  mine. We have
different opinions  that   can't  be avoided, but try to respect each others. I
,however, will post yours here  even  if your opinion is different than mine as
long as it has some good values inside it. Promised!


5) I want to suggest new section(s) for this FAQ!

Answer: Sure. Refer to my #4 answer for details.


6) Can you give me a Night Elf strategy guide in this FAQ?

Answer: Definitely no. I only  cover about  their heroes  stats,  analysis  and
strategies not the units and the buildings. Look at my #1 question for details.


7) 'I've seen this FAQ is hosted somewhere  else!' + 'Someone  in  GameFAQs  is
plagiarizing your FAQ!'

Answer: Please send me an email, supplying the  exact  URLs  as well. I'll take
legal action soon. The only websites which  are  allowed  to  host  my  FAQ are
listed in 'Legal Stuff' section and if another writer on GameFAQs steal my work
in their FAQ, I'll tell CJayC and let him handle it. That and  that  alone  for
I've  put  LOTS  of  hours  in  my  life  to  write  this   FAQ,  enough  said!


8) May I use your ASCII Art in this FAQ?

Answer: No, and don't bother to ask. I created  that ASCII for my own FAQs  and
no one may use them. Can't you see a line of words after that ASCII title? O.o


9) May I host this FAQ in my site?

Answer: This has been answered in my 'Legal Stuff' section,  but  I'll tell you
once again... you may host this FAQ as long as you ask my consent  first and do
not alter ANYTHING  in this FAQ. You must supply your website URLs  (non profit
URL type)   as well so I may check your site. Additionally, you also must check
GameFAQs periodically to see the newest version of this FAQ and replace the old
one in your  site. Failing to do so and I have the right  to ask you ANYTIME to
remove my FAQ from your site. I've  worked so hard just to  make  this  FAQ and
don't want to be ripped off by those noobs outside...


(GAME RELATED QUESTIONS)
------------------------

10) Are Night Elf heroes the strongest heroes in Warcraft III realm?

Answer: Depends. The game's engine is made  in  such  system so each races have
strengths and weaknesses. You can  try  each  races  so  you may answer this by
yourself. Lee also pointed this out on his mails, see them here -> [THANKS].


10b) So, who's Night Elf strongest hero?

Answer: I'd point to Demon Hunter. He's physically strong, and once he hits his
ultimate practically he's  unstoppable. I  saw some insane players beaten their
opponents using single  Demon Hunter, in fact they blasted their WHOLE opponent
army using Demon Hunter with Metamorphosis spell only..... Nasty, eh? Honestly,
I like him but not as my first choice. He WAS my choice at  Reign  of Chaos but
since Warden came and slices up her opponent like no tomorrow...


10c) THEN, if you were asked to pick a team, which heroes would you choose?

Answer: I'd go with Demon Hunter/ Warden  as  my  first  hero (depending on  my
opponents' style) and pick Naga Sea Witch (Neutral hero) as  my  second. Either
combination  (Demon Hunter + Naga Sea Witch   or   Warden + Naga Sea Witch) are
deadly. Except for  some rare situations, like  Night Elf Mirror, for  example,
where I'd stick with Priestess of the Moon or Pandaren as my first. As  for the
combinations for heroes/troops,I've added new question as listed on my #19 FAQ.


11) You mentioned  'patch 1.21' in your 'About' section.  What  is  it exactly?

Answer: Patch is a  small program that developers released  in  order  to bring
enhancements for their program. The effects can be felt as soon as the patch is
applied. 1.21   is  the latest patch for Warcraft 3 TFT for now and if you want
to play this   game online, you should get this patch for sure....Oh, and don't
send the  game   bugs or game   compatibility problems to me, I'm not Technical
Support   girl... To know the version of the patch you're currently running on,
open up your Warcraft  III installation  folder and locate 'patch.txt', open it
with notepad/wordpad and you can see   something similar like this (if you can,
then you're running the _latest_ version.):

_______________________________________________________________________________

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  WARCRAFT III: THE FROZEN THRONE VERSION HISTORY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Patch 1.21
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

FEATURES

- The game now runs natively on both PowerPC-based and Intel-based Macs.
- Player can now view frames per second using the "/fps" chat command.

FIXES

- Fixed a timing problem with the game on PCs with dual-core CPUs.
- Fixed a crash that could occur with the Frost Breath ability.
- Fixed a crash that could happen in multiplayer games.
- Fixed an exploit that could happen in multiplayer games.

Important   Note  on  Patching for  Mac  Players: The  file  layout  inside the
game folder  is  changed  significantly by Patch  1.21.  As  a result, in order
to  be   able   to  install  the  Frozen  Throne  expansion  from CD, you  must
install  Reign  of  Chaos first, then install Frozen  Throne from  CD, and then
patch   to  version 1.21,   in that order.  If  you   patch  to  v1.21 and then
attempt to install Frozen Throne after that, it will not install correctly.

MAPS

- New maps:
  - (2)SecretValley
  - (6)BomberCommand
- (4)LostTemple (RoC)
  - The 4 Forest Troll Berserkers by the natural expansions now drop Level
    2 Permanent instead of Level 2 Charged items
- (4)TurtleRock
  - The 4 Ogre Warriors along the outer pathways now drop Level 2
    Permanent instead of Level 2 Charged items
- (6)GnollWood
  - The 4 Gnoll Brutes by the central Item Shops now drop Level 2
    Permanent instead of Level 2 Charged items
_______________________________________________________________________________

Note:  Blizzard may release a new patch in the future, who knows when...it's up
to their   decision. And till now patches are usually used to fix in-game bugs,
exploits and   balance   fixes   but perhaps may have different function in the
future. The newest patch,  unfortunately,  is quite a big download  for dial-up
users, including me ;_;  , about 50 + Mb. It   took me   3 consecutive hours to
download the patch using my worthless internet connection....

12) I can't  install  the  patch  CORRECTLY! It says "reinstalling the game" or
something similar like that.
Answer: WARNING, I'm SICK looking at several people at   GameFAQs message board
asking the same question  again and again so I'll post  this   question here to
help you out :P

Here's how to solve the problem!

Please take a look at the detailed error information FIRST! If it's similar as
the sentence problem, take a good breath of relief and smile :D

_______________________________________________________________________________

"An error has occured preparing the patch. This problem can commonly be
corrected by reinstalling the game and trying to update again. If this error
repeats then contact Blizzard Technical Support.

Please press 'OK' to exit or press 'Show Details' to see more information about
the error."

NOTE:
+If you press "Show Details >>" button you will see this message--------------v

"Blizzard PrePatch v2.70 compiled on Jul  7 2003
This program patches Warcraft 3

Log created at  7:39 am on 11/28/2006

Registry error loading key 'Warcraft III\InstallPath'
The system cannot find the file specified.


RESULT: Prepatch failed"
_______________________________________________________________________________


How to fix this problem (step by step solutions):
- Backup your valuable save games, maps and replays first.
- Delete that Warcraft 3 folder entirely.
- Reinstall Warcraft 3 now along with the Frozen Throne.
- Use that patch again.
- Restore your backup-ed save games, maps and replays.

Now  there  should be NO  error  message as it  was if  you follow  these steps
correctly. AND   for   your   reference you   must NEVER copy the game from one
location from another as this move  will not   register the game correctly into
Windows registry so the same   problem   will occur in the future if you do....


12b) I can't install the patch CORRECTLY! It says  "corrupted program file"  or
something similar like that.

Answer: The pacth you've downloaded is corrupted,  perhaps it was cause by slow
internet connection and you didn't use Download Manager.

How to fix this problem:
- Use better internet connection OR
- Use download manager.

NOTE: I experienced this once but forgot to copy the detailed error message and
so failed to post the exact message here, if you have one please let me know :D


12c) I can't  install   the   patch   CORRECTLY!  It  says  "checksum error" or
something similar like that.

Answer: You're using PIRATED COPY of  Warcraft 3  (cracked version)  OR  you're
trying to apply lower version of Warcraft 3 patch. -.-

How to fix 'Pirated Copy' problem:
- BUY the original version you little maggot!

NOTE: THIS IS caused by PIRATED copy of Warcraft 3 so I will NOT post  detailed
error message here  though  I  have  that  error   message  in  my  assessment.

*ahem* and so here's the second issue....

How to fix 'checksum error' problem caused by wrong patch version:
- Always download the latest version (1.20e for now) OR
- Use a built-in patch feature.

And below is the sample of error messages for this condition:

_______________________________________________________________________________

Blizzard BNUpdate v2.84 compiled on May  3 2004

_______________________________________________________________________________


12d) Frozen Throne always crashes, but not on the same location!

Answer: Try    unistalling and   reinstalling   the game fresh. Rebooting  your
computer  before   playing. Also,   updating your   drivers generally is a good
idea, especially your VGA   and   Sound Card's driver. Lastly, you should check
whether your computer is overclocked or not.If yes, reduce the processor/memory
clock as listed on your manual. Scanning  and defragmenting   your drives   are
usefull to help your computer performance.

Usually, steps above would be able to solve most   common  problems but in case
the crashes keep happening, you should check  your Warcraft 3 CD. Try borrowing
your friend's CD and reinstall the  game. If the problems seem subside, then it
could be your CD which is wrong. Return it and ask for replacement if possible.


12e) So, my game's laggy......

Answer: Warcraft 3 TFT runs fine on my 2.6 Ghz, 608 Mb RAM (+32 Mb onboard VGA)
, except some situations where I must   put resolution on 800x600 to avoid lags
and delays. My system  lacks  VGA  Card  so  that's  why  I  need  to lower the
resolution and graphic details. If you're   experiencing a slowdown, you should
consider to add - RAM first, VGA second, Processor third.

.......I wish I had GeForce6800 Ultra.......


12f) Can I play this game without CDs?

Answer: Sure, the  easiest  but  illegal way is to use No-CD Crack which can be
found easily on the net.  The second way is  to make an ISO of your original CD
and mount it to  Virtual Drive  like Daemon  or  Alcohol.  Usually this done to
save the CDs from scratches and dusts.


13) What is 'Staff of Preservation'?

Answer: It's a Night Elf's unique staff, sold  in racial shop for 150 gold. Can
be acquired after upgrading your Main Hall to second grade. Basically it allows
you to teleport your unit instantly to your highest  level Main Hall, so mostly
it is used to  save  dying hero or unit. However, it also has cooldown which is
rather annoying  because it takes a long time. BUT ironically, you can transfer
the Staff  right  away after  it's been  used by hero to another hero. Doing so
will reset the Staff's cooldown and you'll be able to use it right away! Sadly,
if you return the staff to the first  hero, the cooldown is still there and you
must wait till it disappears. However, this staff is so powerful so as it's the
most hunted staff on teamgames with complex races, as far as I can see.

As a side note, the only thing  which can match this staff's power is only that
Staff of Sanctuary (Human).


14) What is 'replay'?

Answer: Replay is a small  piece  of  file  (usually around 50-300 Kb for melee
replays,  but I've  seen  some  annoying  DotA-Allstars replays around 2-3 Mb!)
which contains binary information. This binary information can only be read and
made by Warcraft III game engine. They are usually located in '(drive)\Warcraft
III\replay' folder (replace 'drive' with your Warcraft 3 installation path) and
can only be opened  by  respective  pacth (you cannot open 1.19 patch with 1.20
patch). By using this, you can  see another people replays without actually see
their game in-time! Thanks to Blizzard  for this  support, for many people gain
new tactics and knowledge by simply watching a replay and put what they've seen
into their own playstyle. Generally, watching  a replay is recommended for both
beginners and advanced players. For a  place  where  to download replay, please
see my 'Special Thanks' section.


14b) I've downloaded new replays and want  too  see  it. How  do  I  see  those
replays?

Answer: Simple, put   them  on '(drive)\Warcraft III\replay'   folder  (replace
'drive' with your  Warcraft  3  installation path). Play  the game  and  choose
'Single Player'. Now you should be able to see 'Replay' tab. Use it  to   watch
your replays. :)


15) What are those 'maps' mean?

Answer: Maps  (in this case,  melee maps)  are  binary  files  that can only be
opened with Blizzard's World Editor (to edit the map) and by Warcraft  3's game
engine (to play the map). They are  usually  located  in  '(drive)\Warcraft III
\Maps' folder (replace 'drive' with your  Warcraft  3  installation path). Each
map has different terrains, structures and unique placements. So in this FAQ, I
explain the  strategy  in  each  map  with  each  Night  Elf heroes to help you
encountering different tactics by your opponent.


15b) I've downloaded new maps and want  to   play  them. How  do  I  play those
maps?

Answer: Simple, put   them  on '(drive)\Warcraft III\maps'   folder   (replace
'drive' with your  Warcraft  3  installation path). Play  the game  and  choose
'Single Player' or LAN. Now you should be able to see 'Custom Games' tab.   Use
it  to  play   the  maps  you've  downloaded. :) Several  few maps  I'd like to
recomend are DotA-Allstars, Night of the Dead and Master of Regions. Use Google
to find their website. :)


16) 'What is AMAI?' or 'What is JASS?'
Answer: See my 'Prerequisites' section. But it won't that hard  to  learn  JASS
and Perl if you have  (especially) C++ or  Java  programming background. I know
about  this  because  I  have VB (both 6.0 and .Net) and Java background so the
same is applied  to  you also. Also please also note that Warcraft most popular
map, DotA-Allstars (www.dota-allstars.com), is also programmed directly in JASS
as it has advantages over usual GUI trigger for example: can handle memory leak
and has more efficient trigger handle manner.


(CONTRIBUTED QUESTIONS)
-----------------------

17) Why did you choose NE instead other races?
Answer: Just typed  this  as a  reply to one of my readers. :P My  reasons are:
1. Undead were too nasty looking --;;  Hey don't complain, it's  my own view...
2. Human's heroes, back at  Reign of Chaos, weren't  cool  and annoying. Do you
remember when  Blizzard's  Arch mage was abused badly on early Warcraft 3 days?
3. Orc were too brutal..... . Grunt rush was too effective and powerful against
almost EVERY races. Also, it's not fun to play with just Chain Wave combo.
4. Demon Hunter was just plain cool!!!


18) How should I control my heroes?

Answer: Try to harassing and creeping accordingly.  If your  hero  is harassing
type, ex: Warden  or  PotM then go  for  it. Most  Human  players  would go for
expansion early so harass  them,  while Undead, NE and Orc players would try to
attack your base and kill your wisps to hurt your economy so counter them!

While creeping, you should pay attention to your heroes' health points. If they
get killed  by neutral hostile, that'd be embarassing. However try not to watch
your units  while  creeping since it is a waste of time. Try microing your wisp
which is fast and  cheap for example  to scout  around  map and see what   your
opponent is doing. Is he trying to attack your base? Is  he  trying  to  ambush
you? Is he trying to expand? What kind  of strategies  is he trying to use? You
can't answer all of these  questions if you don't scout. Night Elf, in fact, is
very prone  at  the  beginning of the game and can be destroyed with a flick of
finger if you are  not careful. Scouting provides the info you need most so you
can counter your opponent's strategy  effectively,  more than important in team
games. Several heroes also can be used as a scout for example, Warden and PotM.
PotM holds the highest rank of scouting due to her Owls.

Hext,  you  should  ABSOLUTELY  keep your  heroes  alive  on  entire battles if
possible. Keeping them alive also provides the exp  they need most while losing
them at the  most  important  points would make you regret the  mistakes you've
done. Don't  bother  to use  Tavern  if  you  want  to  revive  lv 3 hero, it's
expensive so save it for  very  urgent situation.  If you can't micro well, I'd
suggest you to try Demon Hunter with Mana Burn + Evasion (Fighter) skills build
order. It's easy to use since you only need to concentrate on casting Mana Burn
only. Try this build repeatedly  until you have the correct timing on using him
then you could try your hand to micro two heroes.

Don't forget  to  alternate  your attention while creeping  and/or attacking to
building your base and/or producing new units. Good Warcraft players will never
build their new units  to  replace the  killed  ones after battle BUT in battle
itself  by  rapidly switching their attention  from  battle to basecamp without
losing  their  important  units. This  move  is easy to describe  but  hard  to
implement as it requires very  intense  training and  experience. However, it's
worth to try and learn this move so you can brag around with your success. :)

Warcraft 3 uses very  unique aspects that balance itself out so you must try to
comprehend the  system  itself  before  even dealing with another aspects. This
game isn't about mass-the-hell and rush-'em tactics type like Age of Empires of
Starcraft.


19) What's the best troops combinations for <insert the name of NE hero here>?
Answer: Heeee, why do  you  ask?  It's up to you. However,  I've   tested  alot
of combinations and found several good results. I tested these  options  mainly
by playing against AMAI and my friends via LAN so they're quite dependable.

For Warden: Yea, she's first because obviously she's my favourite hero EV4r!!:P
1. Mass Archers on early game then upgrade them to Mass Hipporiders
Reason: Good at harassing added with Warden's Blink insane power. I first found
this  extremely  effective  against insane (Human)  AMAI however  this  is also
proven useful on several maps against human player such as Lost Temple.
2. Bears + Dryads
Reason: Good for fighting all-out  also  this is  the most common  strategy for
Night Elf. However,  this  will  place Warden on trouble  because  she needs to
fight hand-to hand against enemies' troops also. Rejuvenation and Abolish Magic
when used properly, can help your Warden to survive immensely.
3. Mountain Giants + Dryads
Reason: The best defensive tactic with huge  potential  firepower. Both MGs and
Dryads have good defense against spell  attacks. Just make sure you have enough
time to build Mountain Giants ASAP before you  get massacred because of lack of
firepower and shield.

For Demon Hunter:
1. Mass Huntresses
Reason: Good for Tower Rush tactic.
2. Bears + Dryads
Reason: Good for fighting all-out  also  this is  the most common  strategy for
Night Elf.  Demon Hunter is  deadly  when used  together  with  this     combo.
Rejuvenation keeps him alive while Abolish can get him out from most terrifying
disabler spells.
3. Mountain Giants + Dryads
Reason: The best defensive tactic with huge  potential  firepower. Both MGs and
Dryads  have good  defense against spell  attacks. Unlike Warden   who is prone
from    physical attacks, DH can help you to repel  against your opp attacks by
using him as a temporary shield.
4. Mass DotT (Druid of the Talon)
Reason: While  they're  very  vulnerable   against  both  physical and  magical
attacks, they're still very useful due to   their Cyclones. Here,  Demon Hunter
can help them for a while soaking out all that physical damage.

For Priestess of the Moon:
1. Mass Huntresses
Reason: Inarguably,  the most useful troops at PotM disposal. Her Trueshot Aura
is really  powerful.  Huntress  is  fast, excellent  for  scouting   because of
Sentinel, and  can be   a quite good shield. Harassing   or Rushing is the best
tactic. However,   this strategy lacks aerial attacks, best to build Ancient of
Wind in case your opponent switches his/her strat and uses air units.
2. Mass Hipporiders
Reason: Due to her natural  aura, this   kind of troops is powerful. Use it  in
conjuction with hit and run tactic.
3. Mass Dryads
Reason: Due to her natural  aura, this   kind of troops is powerful. Use it  in
conjuction with hit and run tactic.
4. Mountain Giants + Dryads
Reason: MGs are good  for  a shield  meanwhile  PotM and Dryads can destroy the
opposition from afar. This combo is also quite good for countering air units.

For Keeper of the Grove:
1. Mass Huntresses
Reason: Inarguably,  the most useful troops at KotG disposal. His Thorns   Aura
is really  powerful.  Huntress  is  fast, excellent  for  scouting   because of
Sentinel, and  can be   a quite good shield. Harassing   or Rushing is the best
tactic. However,   this strategy lacks aerial attacks, best to build Ancient of
Wind in case your opponent switches his/her strat and uses air units.

General combinations/ strategies:
To  repel  either  Footman, Ghoul or Grunt rush, Archers  are the  best option.
They're ridiculously weak but cheap and can  be produced quickly. To  withstand
the rush, stand right  before your   Moon Wells and keep focus firing the hero.
Eventually, he/she will   run and you can beat  off  the rush. Demon Hunter and
Warden are the best leader because of their spells. Keeper of the Grove is best
used against   weaker  heroes  like  Far Seer  or Lich but DON'T use him if the
opponent   is using   Blademaster  or  Death Knight as a part of   his/her rush
strategy. Meanwhile, Priestess of the Moon almost stand no  chance against this
kind of rush. Night Elf have serious problem against rushes, especially in team
games   2vs2 where your ally is  really needed. Be sure you make a  good use of
your own Moon Wells and Ancients.

Night Elf have pretty good counter against many attacks type. If you ever found
yourself in trouble against mass spellcasters tactics like Sorceress or Shaman,
you  can  always use that  tiny  dragon, Faerie Dragon. They're  very  powerful
against spellcasters  due to their  Mana  Flare  although  you may need another
units like Hippogryphs -if your enemy is using airs- or few  Bears  and Dryads.
Warden is useful in this case because of her  Fan of Knives, DH too because  he
can provides shield that Faerie Dragons need most.

Against mass  air  units  tactic, you can try Mass  Hipporiders. When  scouting
always tie them  together  and  when  fighting  you  can break their formation.
Hippogryphs are good at air coupled with Archers ranged attacks, and few Dryads
to slow down your opponents, you  can  wipe out the most  terrific air  attacks
with ease. PotM shines here if you use her with either Archers or Dryads.

*Note: if this section  -Question 19- grows but too much, I will simply  create
independent section in the next version of this FAQ.


(ABOUT AUTHOR QUESTIONS)
------------------------

19) Your first language isn't English, can I send you email in English?

Answer:  Yep, English is my alternate language in fact, but worry not for I can

Indonesian, I can understand about portion or so for  few  other  languages  as
well but not adept at using them for conversations.


20) How long did you spend to write this FAQ?

Answer: About 40-45 hours. I fail to remember correctly.... Ah, at  least  long
enough to build a new home. :P My  biggest  work  on this  FAQ is  merging  the
contributions although laying a new layout is also another problem. However,  I
don't want to publish something that isn't  edited properly so  I edit my  work
very carefully before I submit it.  Thank you for your patience.


21) Where can I see your posts in GameFAQs?

Answer: I usually go to Warcraft III The Frozen  Throne  board,  GF World: Asia
board,  Legacy  of  the Ancients  board, Tech board, Random Insanity,  Game and

- Everyone on GameFAQs' Warcraft III The Frozen Throne message board. ---------
  Whhhoops, they helped me when I was but a newbie  player AND helped me out of
  my misery when things got  tough. If it  wasn't  for  these guys, I  would've
  packed this game  up  long  time ago and threw  it away to my soapbox.... >_>

*Note: The emails listed here came directly from my inbox, I pasted those mails
straightly BUT I DID edit them so  as to make  them  seen better on this FAQ. I
copied  and  pasted  the emails blatantly to show my  respect to those who have
sent me contributions. :) However, as I said, I have  the rights to   edit , be
it context or  grammar etc, but  not  to alter  the contents of the emails. The
emails  were sorted based on the   sender's   name, also  I  don't post ALL the
emails I've gotten to save space. I'm only posting the most useful ones.

  For sending me a correction regarding   PotM, here's the email he  has  sent.
  Thanks, really appreciate it.

  Hi there,

  First of all, I am going to say that I am also an avid NE player.  I love the
  work that you have done.  Although  I'm  a  KotG-user, and was hoping to gain
  some new information about my hero,  but it seems that you love Wardens more.
  ;)  I'm not hating, I love all 4 heroes by heart.  <3

  Anyways, the reason I'm writing you an email is because I found while reading
  your guide that the skills on your  Priestess is  kind of messed up.  :P  You
  gave her the skills  for the  DH.  I  don't know how many of these emails you
  have already gotten  but  I'm just adding one to the least.  And of course to
  congratulate you on a very detailed guide. :)

  Well, have a nice day. :)

  For sending me a correction regarding Groove spelling :) Don't sue me please!
  Here's the email he  has  sent. Thanks, really appreciate it.

  You've probably already gotten a couple of emails about this, but it's Keeper
  of the Grove, not Keeper of the Groove.

  Figured I'd let you know if you didn't already. Good job on the FAQ.

- Fernando Lee [blood_s3m@yahoo.co.uk] ----------------------------------------
  For sending me tons of contributions on single email! :) It was me who should
  give you  'thank you'  not you.    You  even  sent  me  the  details of those
  Nukes'   calculation  damage... what an email!   Lee's   contributions   have
  affected my FAQ greatly as you readers can see, applauds for him, please!

  ////
  Hi, there! I read your FAQs. It's  good to know that there is still a TFT(not
  DotA) player   left  in  Indonesia. Will you write another races' hero later?
  Seems to me you've not played this game long enough  (pardon me, it's just my
  assumption). You know what's so good about  this game? because ALL heroes and
  unit have a good and bad  things  almost equally. You said Blood Mage is most
  pathetic  because  you  don't know yet what he's there  for.  He's one of the
  best.

  You said that the most  damaging  nuke  is Undead's Tri-Nuke? that's what all
  people around the  net  also saying. They just don't calculate correctly. The
  strongest  Undead  Tri-Nuke is Nova-250, Coil-300 and  Carrion Swarm-200 (not
  Impale-110) at level 3. Hero armor reduces 30% of  spell damage taken so it's
  (250+300+200)*0.7  = 525  in  an instant. So   what's   that   better   nuke?
  Storm Bolt-350 + Clap-100 + Banish. It does (350+100)*0.7*166 = 522.9. Why  I
  call it better?

  1. Undead Nuke needs all 3 hero to  be  lvl  5 or above, while this nuke only
  needs MK to  be   lvl 5   and   Blood Mage at level 1. Sure it's much easier.
  2. It only   needs   2   hero,   so you can add any damage  and   it  will be
  overwhelming. That 3s  stun can be very deadly. I  count lv. 2 clap because I
  assume MK is at lvl. 5 only.
  3. Death Coil   can't  effect  undead  enemies,  while Human nuke  can be use
  against any. Oh, especially   for undead, you can use tri-nuke  with  Paladin
  Holy Light for and insane 840(kills any lvl 3 Undead hero) instant damage and
  3s stun. If you're a skilled player, you can land even Flame  Strike  at that
  rate, or you can alternate Flame strike with Siphon Mana.

  See? Blood Mage is one deadly  Hero. Even his own attack rate is  faster than
  Warden's. Also, Undead's Tri Nuke won't  kill level 1  Blood Mage, because he
  has 550 HP.

  Now talking  about  Warden, She kills  fast and killed fast, so beware. Demon
  Hunter  is  good hero, but as I said all heroes have power  and weakness. His
  ultimate   is   so-so because   his attack  became  range  (his immolation is
  useless). He's not immune  to  magic  too, so mostly people won't try to hunt
  him down (because of his   high HP) but put him to sleep, cast   debuff   and
  everything. Talking fighting 1 on  1 level 10 heroes duel, the best is Panda.
  You can try it on any heroes.

  KoTG is good for his Entangling Roots. but at  later games,  all of his moves
  can be dispelled. PoTM is also OK. Unfortunately, most every player reluctant
  to use her Owl Scout.

  I don't know  eiter why all people around the net said that Big Bad Voodoo is
  useless. Maybe you don't mind explaining to me?

  You also said Silence is no big deal. Think of a horde of Orc using scroll of
  speed   surrounding  your  Warden. And in  time  you  want  to  blink, you're
  silenced. If I'm not mistaken, Silence is a longest duration debuff that cast
  on Hero (24s at lvl 3). It can also stops Immolation,  Starfall,  Tranquility
  at the same  time  (if they're within  Silence area, which is indeed large at
  level 3). Any spell is useful if you know how to use it.

  Bladestorm is easy to avoid? That means you've never met with Chieftain Stomp
  (4s to  hero at  lvl 3,  the longest stun can be cast  on hero)-Bladestorm or
  Hex-Bladestorm. Even with  1 hero, Orcs  can  Ensnare or purge you to stay on
  place  and  Bladestorm you easily. If you  caught  by Stasis trap, it will be
  much worse.

  The good thing about Transmute, Doom and Charm  is  they can be cast on Spell
  immuned unit like Dryad. Also the cooldown is relatively fast (40s if I'm not
  mistaken). If you're losing dryad that fast, the Casters own your army.

  You mistyped on  DH  Vs Dreadlord. You  said to "learn Blink Quick". DH can't
  blink! =) BTW,  if DL puts your DH to  sleep  with  Immolation active, you'll
  keep losing mana for nothing.

  If you're OK with this kind of mail, I'll keep sending you comment, strategy,
  counter and everything else; but  if  you find this useless, I'll send you no
  more.

  Thanx!
  ////

  Here's his second email (on the same day, just few minutes newer lol):

  ////
  Sorry, there are other things:
  - Force of Nature does Normal  not  Piercing  damage. They're not stronger as
  the level increase, but the number does.
  - Thorn Damages does not calculate critical strikes.
  - Tranquility  DOES  affect  mechanical and spell immune units.   Practically
  everything. The only spells that can heals  mechanical  units are Tranquility
  and DK's Unholy Aura.
  - Entangling Roots used to disable only movement,  but now it disables attack
  also.
  - You mentioned many times about limit use of spell (FoK, Entangling Root) on
  Spirit walker. In fact, they inflict more damage since SW is Ethereal.
  ////

  Here's his third and  fourth  emails, after  I  asked  his  permission to put
  his first two emails on my FAQ. :)

  ////
  Very glad to hear that from you. Whatever info I send you, feel free to place
  it in your FAQs if  you find  it useful. I've read your  FAQs only once. If I
  find anything else, I'll send it to you.

  Big Bad  Voodoo  indeed has  a limited use,  just  like  any other channeling
  ultimate. But, if you want to focus fire on him while channeling, you have to
  GO THROUGH INVULNERABLE HORDE of  Orcs.  The only way to do it, you must have
  air units, because   besides  siege units,  other land units don't have range
  that  long  (BBV has 800 AOE). Now, if you place  healing wards behind Shadow
  Hunter, Dispels/Disenchant  or  Control Magic won't reach it. Don't forget to
  cast Spirit Link  on him before channeling. Now you can see that only siege &
  air units  can focus fire on him. Air units only do piercing or magic damage.
  Siege, piercing and magic does only 50% damage to Hero Armor. Reduces it more
  50%  by  Spirit  Link  and reduce another for amount of  armor  he  has (He's
  Agility type, so has a relatively high armor).

  But,  what  is  really  scary about   this   spell   is  that  it's different
  Invulnerable  system from Paladin's. If  you  cast  any positive buffs to all
  your unit and cast BBV, the invulnerable units KEEP THE BUFFS, unlike Paladin
  or Invulnerable  Potions. IF  you're against Horde that  Uses Blood lust, and
  Lightning Shield  that's  invulnerable and  UNDISPELLABLE, you'll  be doomed.
  Against any channeling ultimate, you can always run, but where to run if they
  do that while raiding your base?  Remember your ancients can't hit them while
  they're pillaging your building.

  I'm not  saying  I'm a  better player than those around the net, but surely I
  have  a  better   open-mindedness  to  say that  any   spell   has a specific
  usefulness.

  Some  heroes  with  good spells have  worse  Ultimate;  some other have so-so
  spells & Ultimate; the  other have  bad  spells but Scary Ultimate; the other
  have   better spells and ultimate, but poor stats. I'm sure Blizzard has been
  calculating  them  carefully, that's why I said that this  game is very, very
  good.

  Oh, about the FoK, it's  simply a BUG that won't hit any ethereal units. It's
  not a physical  damage like you said, because it does not damage spell immune
  units. The Shadow Strike's  Bug is worse. It  CAN  hit ethereal units with NO
  INITIAL DAMAGE. Only  the  over time damage counts. In fact, there are bugs I
  found, but Blizzard doesn't care about  it  because  I don't  have Battle.net
  account - perhaps assuming I'm using pirated games. So I don't bother sending
  them anymore.

  OK, that's all for now. Keep the good writing!
  ////

  Lee's fourth email is as follows:

  ////
  Sorry, I said incorrectly that Silence last 24s on Hero, should be 12s.

  You mistyped in evasion section that it doesn't affect "magic attack". Should
  be "spell attack".  This game has magic  and  spell  type that have different
  property,  so I think  this  one  will be confusing.  Evasion  also CAN evade
  Critical Strike.

  Most people underestimate PoTM. It's true that she can't do much early games.
  But she allows you to do  insane damage later games  because most of NE units
  are  range unit.  Most of us  also  forget  to  consider  her Searing Arrow +
  Trueshot Aura damage.  Around lv.5, her  attack can  deal  around 60 dmg/shot
  alone (not to count  Roar  & Orb of Venom). That's why Blizzard  gave her the
  slowest att. rate (along with Dark Ranger).  If you have  Orc/Undead partner,
  cast Unholy Frenzy or Bloodlust on her and you'll see what I mean.

  Alchemist is easy to kill physically, not magically because He has the lowest
  Armor (1) but high HP. His advantage is that  his  healing spray doesn't have
  cooldown,  and  Acid  Bomb  is  a dangerous spell. I see  that  you're a good
  observer because you do appreciate armor, so I'm sure you understand.

  If you're facing  summoning  heroes,  indeed it's hard at early game. Just be
  sure to have Dryads.  Maybe it's because you played  NE  much more than other
  races, so unconsciously you take them as  big problem. Really, the thing that
  NE must fear is  Mass  Skeleton, because  NE doesn't have Area Dispel, except
  for Wisp. If  you play as other races, you'll consider summoned units as free
  experience or a potential ally (control magic).

  Beastmaster's spells are all  summoning, but none of them has resistant skin.
  That means with enough  MP, Spell Breaker can control them all. Orcs have the
  Summoned Unit killer  (purge, 400 dmg). Undeads  see  them as Additional Ammo
  (with Destroyer, of course). That's why I suggest you use KoTG as first Hero,
  because ER is very useful early game.

  I suggest you to write a bit about Hero-units combination (Or All heroes, not
  just NE), because  it's  the  point   to determine  the  way you play. If you
  analyse Hero only,  it's  very limited,  because  you  can  classify them  to
  'killer', 'tanker', and 'support' only. For instance, if you use Warden-PoTM,
  Claw-Chimaera at late games, you'll regret it =)

  For sending me few  FAQ tips. I've   merged his  tips into  this  FAQ. Wait a
  minute.... what does 'hijacker' mean? O.o

  ////
  It is  worth  noting  that the  Warden's   Blink  makes  any units  which are
  chasing/targetting her  to stop targetting her.  This is  useful for when you
  want your Warden to survive from owerwhelming forces.

  Vengeance's spirits can  be killed even if they are invulnerable. You have to
  use spell such as dispel,  magic, abolish  magic  detonate e.t.c  (any spells
  which hurts summon units)

  Warden should be able to  beat  Demon Hunter if the Demon Hunter goes for the
  immoulation/evasion   build. MB-ing her to  remove  spell like  Blink is only
  effective at level 3.

  Blademaster's Wind Walk counter: I  don't  know  if this  works   but I think
  Huntresses Sentinels has true  sight  thus being able to him. So if you think
  the Blademaster  is  windwalking then grab a  Huntress  and  sentinel  a tree
  nearby. Does not work if there are no trees nearby. :S

  Dreadlord's Sleep  can  be  countered  by  forcing attack the Warden using an
  archer. This wakes her up. Remember to retarget the archer afterwards.

  Demon Hunter's Ultimate  attacks  becomes  chaos  and  splashes. Stunning  is
  virtually useless with the Demon Hunter as his immolation keeps working.

  Keeper of the Grove's abilities are useless when opponents uses Abolish Magic
  etc etc.

  They're my tips.... Otherwise the most indept hero faq ever!

  Don't really care what you do with them.... lol

  I would like to play against a fellow NE player... I basically haven't played
  any   other  races.... (my friends says my view to Melee  is narrowed :S)  So
  please email me.

  Hi Black Zero,
  Name's moyoshix2o (US east server)  and  I  need  desperate help.  I can play
  proficient Night Elf,  meaning that I can do the basic build order and attack
  decently.  What I can't do is scout, micro, or  change  strategies to counter
  what  my  opponent is doing.  I only  know  how  to  do  archers/huntress -->
  dryads/bears.  This sometimes works, but most of the time I just die.  I also
  don't know how to manage my heroes.  I love  Demon Hunter, but I know  that I
  don't use him right.  I usually  go MB/Ev/MB/ev/MB/DF/ev/Im/Im/Im  and  creep
  like crazy.  Once  again  I  can't micro him in battle.  I also like the Dark
  Ranger, but I know that she only works sometimes in early game, and only when
  you catch the  enemy  off  guard.  Please help me.  If  you  could  send me a
  strat, or perhaps a replay with teh current version  of  war 3 tft, that'd be
  great.  Any help at all would be great.  Thanks for reading this far.

[14]. Future Plan & Closing                                              [PLAN]
===============================================================================

Hooooookay,  I think  I've  covered  them  all   but   I'm not  100% sure  that
everything   I   stated   above is   correct because this isn't Walkthrough but
Characters' FAQ with strategy guide inside it, so  to make this little FAQ more
shiny, your  contributions   are  surely welcomed. See 'About' section  to know
about this further. On the next version I'll definitely  fix those  typo errors
which I didn't realize earlier, add  an even more Frequently Asked Questions as
necessary and perhaps  _add_  few  more strategies if I can  find  some.

Oh, typos and other errors may exist within this document for I don't have time
to check everything now >_> so critics and corrections (however small they are)
will be accepted gladly. AND if you send me contributions and  I  don't respond
your email in  the next  day, please be patient. I check my mailbox once a week
and  probably  haven't  gotten  around  your message yet or I'm backlogged with
emails. Short answer: BE PATIENT!
