*****************************************************************************

1.- File History.

-0.1 Have you ever been so excited that you start a guide before you have a
game? Well, I have. Since the last games I have finished took me about three
days each one, I'm pretty confident I'm gonna make a good guide, so I began
making the format of the guide. Blame me. (I think this was on 07/10/2002)

-0.2 Got the game. Started playing, and restarted the guide (07/16/2002).
Not much work done as I'm pretty busy...

-0.3 Beat Warcraft III. Yay. Now, onto Battle.net. I haven't done anything
on the guide due to lack of time, but it's all good... I think. (07/26/2002)

-0.4 Fell asleep before finishing section 6.1.1 yesterday. (07/28/2002,
03:52)

-0.5 Hell, do I hate when a semester is ending... Ended section 6.1.3...
Now, I have to sleep. Wish me Luck, though no one is actually reading this
yet... I'll take that for granted anyway. (30/07/2002, 22:06)

-0.8 Almost a year later, i've picked up the guide again. Section 6 almost
completely finished (only unit stats to complete). Finished sections 10, 13,
16 and 17, and, finally, started section 14. I broke the 200 kb barrier
already! This is gonna be my longest guide :) (07/23/03, 18:05)

-0.9 After three days working non-stop the section 6. Damn them stupid
screenshots...(07/24/03, 14:11)

-1.0 Started the Walkthrough. Actually, just wrote the walkthrough for the
Prologue, but what the hell... (07/25/03, 23:50)

-1.1 After writing the whole human walkthrough, I think it is time to release
this guide. So it begins... (07/31/03, 13:36)

-1.3 I don't know how many months later, the thing starts rolling again. Wrote
the walkthrough for the Undead campaign. Weeee. Also, while it doesn't has
much to do with the guide itself, corrected a big mistake on the credits.
I know of someone who would kill me because of that :)(03/18/04, 11:15)

-1.4 There is a reason I haven't done anything in like two months: The Orc
Campaign is very slow to play and to write down the walkthrough. Besides,
count 'em: I've finished no less than ten games in the past three months.
Amy Lee: Marry me. (08/09/04, 22:27)

-1.5 My computer died. Then, I fixed it with my mad virus removing skillz,
and my keyboard died. Fine, I bought a new one... and my MOUSE DIED AS WELL!
GIVE ME A BREAK, HARDWARE! Oh well. After five or six months, I remembered
that I hadn't installed WC III. That, and I don't know where I put the XP.
And I found my American McGee's Alice CD (working on a spanish walkthrough
as well as a Deus Ex guide seres). Okay. If that's not enough of
an excuse for not working, I also had college stuff to do. So... don't
tread on me. Finished the goddamn Orc Campaign. Hell for me. (02/28/05)

-1.6 Finished the whole campaign, added some more version info, only
missing the demo campaign (uh...). Easter Eggs list complete (To the best
of my knowledge). Added the goddamn Water elemental stats (can't believe
I forgot to add that already). Completed the races and units section at
long last (still need to find the stats of the Pit Lord and the Ranger)
Deathstars rule. Great band. (03/20/05)

-1.7 Started the item list. Added the full intro for Zero Wing (Not that
it matters, but it's really curious) Completed the Demo Walkthrough. Added
a new easter egg. Corrected a few spelling errors.(16:53, 04/22/05)

- 1.8 Finished the Item List. Solved the "Timmy's Mistery", which didn't
actually existed, it was me making fun of myself. Added two new easter
eggs. Added a note about installing the Frozen Throne. Damn I gotta go to the
bathroom. (11:49, 04/23/05)

- 1.9 Corrected a easter egg, and added a new one. Added the description for
the Ranger, the Pit Lord and the Warlock. (1:37, 04/24/05)

- 2.0 Added info about neutral buildings. Added the stats of the Wolves of
the Feral Spirit. Started the Spell and Abilities Notes. This guide is huge.
Where the hell did all these KBs come from? Do you know how do you know
you're obssessed about a game? When you wake up in the morning and you
ask your mother "Has sleep dulled my senses?" (8:30, 04/26/05)

- 2.1 Finished the Spell and Abilities Notes. Started the Hotkeys section.
Removed one section and replaced it with the Hotkeys section. (11:41,
04/29/05)

- 2.2 Finished the Hotkeys Section. At long damn last. Also added the
Chaos Orc Units, added a new easter egg, added the Orc Warchief, Added
the attack stats of the guard and cannon tower (Oops)and...
that's it. (15:58, 05/05/05) WTF? Has Hell FROZEN over YET??

2.-Introduction.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, one of the most anticipated sequels ever, is
finally out. Please take into account that you are reading a guide wrote by
a loyal fan, and I know what I'm talking about when that about is Warcraft.

Coming from the masterminds of Blizzard, Warcraft III (WC III) is a beautiful
RTS with impressive 3D graphics, incredible sound effects, great music, and...
Pandas! Well... Is just that I'm shocked. I just saw it. Read the guide to
know more about it...

Furthermore, the game itself is very different: Numbers don't win a battle,
strategy and inteligent commanding does. Proof of it are the Heroes, above
average powerful units which can single handedly turn the tide of a battle
without any problem. Is it better than Starcraft? It's definitely more
advanced, but is like a different genre by itself.

Well, enjoy the game, and, please, don't just burn a copy! A game this great
deserves more than a pathetic copied CD. Welcome to this guide...

*****************************************************************************

3.- About this Guide.

Since this game requires a Monster Machine(tm) to run, I expect everyone
reading this to use 800x600 or better. I just can't get myself to use
anything better. It took me nearly a year to get used to this after using
640x480. I also don't understand why isn't anyone using that again. It was
wonderful. Ahhhh... Doom...

Please don't ask me about my CD Key. There are some reasons about it: First,
it too darned long. Second, I paid my full 60 bucks to play this game, and
I don't want someone to abuse of my honest act. Third, I expect to play on
Battle.Net. And, finally, I don't think you can use MY CD Key on any other
game. It's logistically ilogical.

This game rulz. I mean, is good. Yeah. and Stuff. Blaaaaah.


NOTE: *BURNING LEGION UNIT* denotes a unit used by the Burning Legion
in the single player campaign.

NOTE FROM VERSION 1.6: I need some help about the items found on each mission
(only lists. Any help would be REALLY appreciated. I'm also missing the Chaos
Orc Units, which I can't be bothered to write. I'm too lazy. Heh. Anyway, I'll
be taking a break from this guide. Bahamut Lagoon Cries for Me (tm).

NOTE FROM VERSION 1.8: Where the hell is Wirt's Leg located? Anybody?

NOTE FROM VERSION 1.9: After spending three hours trying to beat KING ARTHAS,
the first mission from the final episode of THE FROZEN TRHONE, I've
decided to write that guide, as this one is bassically finished. And of course,
I never took that break. I actually took a break from *college*, which
resulted on a 10/20 grade on my last Algorythms and Structures II quiz.
Go me.

NOTE FROM VERSION 2.3: With the Chaos Orc units added and the hotkeys
registered, I just can't think of anything else (well, I do, but anything
else USEFUL) to be added to this guide. I will make a research on add-on
software, but I don't know if I will add it, so, for now, FINAL VERSION.

Don't take that literally. I will find something else to add. But,
currently, I got like ten other guides to work on. Don't let that stop you
from sending up contributions.

*****************************************************************************

4.- History.

The History comes way from WC I. In the begining, there was nothing on
the Great Dark Beyond. And, for some reason, everthing was created. Thousands
of worlds were born and populated.

The main plot comes from the powerful Burning Legion, an Army of Demons which
go rampant from world to world obliterating everything. Now, Lordaeron is at
hand.

The Humans, the youngest race from the world, finally won their grudge against
the Orc. However, they became insanely tame after that. Disturbed by this,
they keep them enslaved, awaiting their next move. Prince Arthas, the young
son of King Therenas, King of Lordaeron, is concerned about a Plague extending
around. Thrall, Son of Durotan, escapes and decides to free his race, the Orcs.
However, a Prophet comes and tells him to rally to Kalimdor. Being a
shamanistic guy, he agrees.

Here is where the actual game begins. You will lead the humans, the Orcs, and
finally the reclusive Night Elves to defend their world against the Undead
and the Burning Legion.

(SHAMELESS PLUG: For a very comprehensive plot detailing, check out my Plot
Guide for the Warcraft series, available at gamefaqs.com. And yes, I corrected
the mistake about Illidan's fate. Quit pestering me.)

*****************************************************************************

5.- The Basics of the Game.

While learning to play Warcraft isn't actually that hard, mastering it is the
challenge. Here's a quick and dirty guide to get you started.

a)Resources:

Warcraft III, as well as an other "craft" game ever made, is first and
foremost a game of production. The game requires, to a certain point, to be
proficient on your economic roots before being an adept general.

WCIII manages three kinds of resources: gold, lumber and food.

Gold is mined from gold mines. Well, duh. While the orcs Peons and human
Peasants simply enter the mine and get out with bags of gold, the Undead
Acoltes instead need to summon a Haunted Gold Mine before entering, and,
furthermore, the just stand there praing and the money goes to your account,
you don't need to move. This is, in a sense, a big advantage since you don't
need a Necropolis near to maximize the production.
The Night Elves' Wisps need a Tree of Ages nearby in order to entangle a
gold mine. When entangled, Wisps can enter the mine and get money from there
just like a Haunted Mine.

Gold is your primary resource in the sense that you need money for anything.
Is important that you keep tab of the Gold Mines' reserves of gold, and is
always better to have more than one working to get more money.

Also is worth noting that killing creeps will yield some money in small
ammounts.

Lumber is obviously gotten from trees. Again, Peons and Peasants go there,
chop the tree, and bring it back. About Undead, you need to train Ghouls to
get lumber, they will chop down the tree. Wisps are different, they stand
there around the tree getting lumber, but without damaging the tree.
There is another unit which can get lumber and is the Goblin Shredder. The
difference is that this one gets lumber in ammounts of 200 instead of 10,
and in the same or slightly less time than a Ghoul, a Peon or a Peasant.
They are, however, expensive and take 4 food to train, but two of them can
give you an edge if you can afford them for a while.

Food is provided by Farms, Burrows, Ziggurats and Moon Wells, as well as
the primary building for each race. It's used to regulate the ammount of
units you are using. More powerful units ussually need more food. A good
way of knowing this is playing with the Undead, and seeing how a Ghoul takes
two food and a Frost Wyrm needs seven.

b)Buildings:

Buildings are your bases on the battlegrounds. With buildings, you train
units, upgrade them, provide food and the such. Each race has a few generic
buildings, a main hall, a food provider, a primary unit training place,
a magic unit training place, and a defensive structure. The specifics
functions of each varies with each race, for example, the Undead
Ziggurats, which provides food, can be upgrade to a Spirit Tower and
doubles as a defensive structure.

Since the days of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, is fairly difficult to
explain every building without making it on their own sections, so specifics
details will be explained on the races sections (See section 6).

c)Controling the game:

Warcraft III follows the same intuitive interface from Warcraft II, with
some tweaks for the better.

You play with a mouse. You choose a unit, left click on the thing you want
it to do on the command box (On the down-right corner of the screen),left
click on a target if needed, and it will do it. As simple as that. Of
course, there is much more to it.

First, there is a more simple way to do it: Right click. Right click
anywhere on the screen and it will do the most common thing to do
on the target. If you right click on an all building with a peon or
the equivalent, it will repair it. Well, unless is a burrow, in
which case, the peon will enter it. Right click on an enemy, and
it will attack it. Right click somewhere else, and it will move to
the location.

Even more, a new feature for Warcraft III is the autocasting. If you
right click on an spell which has yellow corners, you will activate
autocasting it. Then, the unit by itself will make use of the ability
whenever it sees fit. This very useful as the ammount of micromanagement
needed sometimes is huge.

You can chose up to twelve units at a time, either by keeping Shift down
and selecting each unit you wish, by holding down the left mouse button
and getting all units into the rectangle, or by double clicking on a certain
unit, which will choose all similar units, just like Starcraft.

Now, your left hand can be holding the berverage, the bag of chips or the
hand of your boy/girlfriend while he/she looks at you thinking of breaking
with you, but is actually much better to use the keyboard shortcuts to play.
For instance, using the arrow keys to move the scroll is simply much better
than using the mouse.

Some commands are (Ripped from the manual):

F1-F3: Selects the corresponding hero. The hero will take one of these
slots in order of summoning. Two rapid presses centers view on the hero.
F8: Select idle workers. You know you have workers without nothing to do
when you see their portrait on the down-left corner of the screen.
F9: See the Quest Log. This is partly useless in multiplayer, obviously.
F10: Opens the game menu.
F11: Opens the allies menu.
F12: Opens the chat menu.
Spacebar: Centers in the last notification. VERY useful.
Ctrl + any number: Assign the selected group to the pressed number group.
You can now choose that group or building just by pressing the number.
VERY useful as well. Two rapid presses will center the view on the
group.
Enter: Opens message box.

There are others which will be added in time, but is simple to know them:
position your mouse over the command, and there will be a leter with a
different color. That is the shortcut.

d)Upkeep:

Upkeep is more or less the money you require to afford your troops. All
of them, well, eat, and do stuff like that, and you're paying for it :).

Upkeep is negligible (read: it doesn't applies) when you have few
troops, but as your army grows, you will need to pay an upkeep to your
gold income to support them.

When you hit 50 supplies, you will be in Low Upkeep, where your workers
will only bring 70% of the gold they mine out of the gold mine.

When you hit 70 supplies, you will be un High Upkeep, where your workers
will only bring 40% of the gold they mine out of the gold mine.

Is important to check this at all times. While Low upkeep is certainly
manageable, high upkeep is ridiculously difficult to keep up with. Just
try to use some Ghouls or Necromancers with that legion of Abominations to
keep a regular population level.

e)Creeps:

Creeps are neutral but hostile units which are around the map guarding
resources and the such. Their true purpose is to add good experience to
a hero.

A level 10 creep is worth 80 experience points more than a level 10
hero. Here is a table to calculate your battles:

Level 1: 20
Level 2: 30
Level 3: 40
Level 4: 60
Level 5: 80
Level 6: 120
Level 7: 160
Level 8: 240
Level 9: 320
Level 10: 480

The experience gained is the same no matter the kind of creep you kill.
All Level 7 or higher creeps sport chaos damage. Check the appropiate
section for info on all creeps and the approach recommended.

Some Creeps are very dangerous, so scouting is always recommended.

f)Heroes:

Heroes are a vital part of the game. Technically, a hero is an extra powerful
unit which by itself can decimate half your army.

Each race counts with three very different heroes. Is your job to choose
which ones you like to use. As a general rule, is always better to use one
or two heroes instead of all three. The reason is that heroes need to raise
levels, and ussually a third one will end up being very weak. On smaller maps,
when quick action is needed, ussually a single hero will make the grade.

Regardless of the race and type, heroes raise in level. With each level,
they gain more strenght, agility and intelligence. Varying with each hero,
one of these stats is predominant, and is the more important stat.

STRENGHT HEROES		: Death Knight, Dreadlord, Tauren Chieftain,
				  Mountain King, Paladin.
INTELLIGENCE HEROES	: Lich, Far Seer, Keeper of the Groove, Arch Mage.
AGILITY HEROES		: Blade Master, Demon Hunter, Priestess of the Moon.

To start with, the primary stats of the Hero will add up to his or her attack
rating. Each point will be a point of extra damage. Intelligence adds to his
max mana, and mana regeneration. Agility adds to his movement speed and attack
speed. Strenght adds to his armor and max HP.

All heroes have hero armor (Which reduces piercing damage and takes regular
damage from all kind of attacks) and hero attack type, which deals regular
damage to all kinds of armor except Divine and Fortified. The lone
exception is the Demon Hunter in demon form, which has chaos damage.

Experience required to level up, regardless of race and type:

Level 1: 0-199
Level 2: 200-499
Level 3: 500-899
Level 4: 900-1399
Level 5: 1400-1999
Level 6: 2000-2699
Level 7: 2700-3499
Level 8: 3500-4399
Level 9: 4400-5399
Level 10: 5400

Heroes are worth in experience, regardless of race and type:

Level 1: 80
Level 2: 100
Level 3: 120
Level 4: 140
Level 5: 160
Level 6: 200
Level 7: 240
Level 8: 280
Level 9: 320
Level 10: 400

Heroes strategies are bassically broken down in two pieces:

* Leading Armies: The hero leading an army is ussually best equiped with a
beneficial aura for your units, as well as being rather good at defending
itself.

Leading an army with a hero is something that you need to learn quickly.
Heroes can powerfully affect the outcome of a battle. One quick idea to
keep the army together is to inmediatly set the rally points of the unit
producer building of choice to make unit follow him wherever he may go.
Ranged units works best with this since they have a bigger reaction radius,
meaning they can pick up targets at longer distances. Melee units sometimes
stand there behind the hero waiting for orders.

Despite what you might think, most heroes are pretty easy to kill. As a
rule of thumb, if a hero isn't designed to get down and dirty in the
middle of the battle, don't send it. While a Tauren chieftain can Warstomp
and the Shockwave his way out of the death to avoid it via his powerful
attacks, a Lich can barely cast Freeze Armor to defend himself and wait
for help.

* Killing other heroes: Each race has at least one hero that can effectively
dominate or at least give a good fight to other hero. Namely the Demon Hunter,
the Mountain King, the Death Knight and the Blade Master are, technically,
hero killers.

In hero fighting, powerful attacks and tricks are the norm. The Blade Master
using his Critical Strike and then hunting down fleeing heroes with Wind
Slash is the living example of what I say. Mirror Image confuses enemies
and buys valuable free hits.

The Demon Hunter can disable enemies with Mana Burn, evades strikes and
can become a powerful fighter via Metamorph.

The Mountain King is easily the most effective out of the bunch. All of
his basic techs can disable enemies while dealing extra damage and
his ultimate makes all enemy tricks useless.

The Death Knight's Death Coil has ridiculous range and using hit and run
tactics and powerful slashes (couple with his aura's high speed and
regeneration), he can dominate other heroes.

Other heroes like the Dreadlord and the Priestess of the Moon can be
effective but are much more weaker in direct combat making them less
dangerous to face.

In direct combat, ussually the first one to hit the opponent is the winner,
which is the reason why the DK has been regarded as a wonderful hero now
while being shunned at first. Is important to get this first hit, so make
sure you are the one to get it.

g) Expand your empire:

If anything, one of the big troubles that new players face is that they
find it difficult to extend their own bases. While some games can be won
easily by attacking in lightning speed strikes, others require some
longer campaings, and gold is gonna be the main concern in order to
keep your army growing.

The time to expand is up to you to decide, but it must be before you
see that you can't keep up with your own production. Technically,
as a rule of thumb, you must expand when you can actually defend all of
your bases, and resources don't keep up with your production.

The Human Alliance is a conglomeration of Humans, Elves, and Dwarves. They
are the most versatile army in Warcraft III, with good ground and air troops,
excellent siege capability, and powerful spellcasters. (From the Manual)

The Human Alliance is, in virtue, unchanged from Warcraft II. The have kept
their most powerful units with the notable exception of the Dwarven Demolition
Team, and every other critter has gotten new and better abilities.

High points include wonderful spellcasters, the best scouting available and
the best Hero-Killer around, while having the most resistant structures.
Cheap units, and two siege monsters. High armor.

Low points include low speed, overall vulnerable units, not a single dominant
non-hero creature, needs lots of buildings and space to work. Their Farms don't
have any secondary use.

6.1.1.- Units.
 _________
|         |
| PEASANT |
|_________|

COST: 90 gold, 1 food.
ABILITIES: Call to Arms, Back To work.
STATS: HP			: 220
	 Attack rating	:
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological

The worker of the Humans, the Peasant is a normal one. They can,
for some unique ability, build an structure faster by using more peasants
and making them repair the building. Even more, if needed, they can be
converted to Militia, getting a boost on armor and damage to defend the
base. This is activated preferably on the Town Hall, by selecting Call to
the Arms. While they aren't exactly very effective, they can help.
 _________
|         |
| MILITIA |
|_________|

COST: N/A.
ABILITIES: Back to Work, Call to Arms.
STATS: HP			: 220
	 Attack rating	: 12-13 / 13-15 / 14-17 /15-19
	 Attack Type	: Melee Medium
	 Armor		: 4 / 6 / 8 / 10(!)
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Peasants converted. More effective battle wise, but can't build
or collect resources. This lasts 45 seconds, but you can cancel it by using
the Town Hall and selecting Back to Work. Great armor, BTW.
 _________
|         |
| FOOTMAN |
|_________|

COST: 160 gold, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Defend (Researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 420
	 Attack rating	: 12-13 / 13-15 / 14-17 / 15-19
	 Attack Type	: Melee Medium
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


The basic fighting unit, the Footman is a very dependable fighting unit as
long as you don't leave them alone around. Is pretty cheap for what it is
actually worth, is a very good idea to mass produce them and dedicate
Lumber to more interesting units. Don't send them head to head against grunts,
however, for obvious reasons. The Footman can gain a new ability, Defend,
which makes it move darned slow but receiving very little damage from
piercing attacks. Quite useful at base attacking and against the NE.
 __________
|          |
| RIFLEMAN |
|__________|

COST: 240 Gold, 30 Lumber, 3 food.
ABILTIES: Long Rifles (Researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 520
	 Attack rating	: 18-24 / 19-28 / 20-32 / 21-36
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


Another very dependable unit, the Rifleman is your ranged unit. It's very
effective in large groups against powerful creeps like dragons, and has
a lot of HP to sustain damage. A good Anti-Air unit. Can gain an special
upgrade, the Long Rifles, which increases the range of the Riflemen.
Anyone who has played Stacraft will tell you how useful is this.
Research it as fast as possible.
 ________
|        |
| KNIGHT |
|________|

COST: 290 Gold, 60 Lumber, 4 Food.
ABILITIES: Animal War Training (Researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 800
	 Attack rating	: 21-29 / 22-34 /23-39 / 24-44
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 6 / 8 / 10 / 12
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Knight suffers from the fact that at its cost, is fairly fragile and
doesn't does as much damage as it should. Is very expensive, specially in
terms of food, but if you can afford it, then by all means use them:
they are the best ground unit the Humans can use. Is also pretty small,
meaning they can gang up on an enemy without the trouble Abominations and
Taurens have due to their size. Their special upgrade is the Animal War
Training, which adds 150 HPs to their count, making them 950 HP powerhouses.
Essential if you plan them in your strategy.
 ________
|        |
| PRIEST |
|________|

COST: 160 Gold, 60 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Adept training, Master Training (Researched at the Arcane
Sanctum).
STATS: HP			: 290
	 Attack rating	: 8-9
	 Attack Type	: Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological.


The Priest is a very useful spellcaster, they can autocast Heal, which
obviously heals small ammounts of health, but can cast it lots of times
since is very cheap (only 5 MP). They also can learn Dispel Magic, which
eliminates all buffs on any units caught in the area of effect, but much
better is to use them on summoned units like those darned wolves or
elementals, since it damages dearly. Their final spell is Inner Fire,
which temporaly improves attack and defense of allied units. This spell
is also available to set in autocast.
 ___________
|           |
| SORCERESS |
|___________|

COST: 180 Gold, 20 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Adept Training, Master Training (Researched at the Arcane
Sanctum).
STATS: HP			: 325
	 Attack rating	: 8-10
	 Attack Type	: Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


Powerful spell caster which can cripple enemy units with slow, being
that their main ability and the one you will be using much more often.
It can be set in autocast. They can also cast Polymorph, which transforms
an enemy unit temporaly into a critter. They will keep their HP and armor,
but they will be harmless. Flying units are turned into flying sheeps oO.
Their last spell is invisibility, which is best paired with the Archmage
to send invisible units right into the enemy base and teleport twelve
siege tanks in there :P.
 ____________
|            |
| GYROCOPTER |
|____________|

COST: 220 Gold, 60 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Gyrocopter Bombs (Researched at the Workshop).
STATS: HP			: 350
	 Attack rating	: 27-32, 19-22 / 28-38, 20-24 /  29-44,
				  21-27 / 30-50, 22-30
	 Attack Type	: Ranged piercing, Ranged Siege.
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average, slow
	 Clasification	: Mechanical.


The Gyrocopter is a serious improvement over the Gnomish Flying Machine
since it can also act as fighter instead of just being an scout, and
it can do both things pretty well. They can gain the Gyrocopter Bombs,
which adds a Air-Ground attack as well. Pretty good antiair units, but
the Riflemen are probably much better. Your choice. Can detect invisible
units.
 _____________
|             |
| MORTAR TEAM |
|_____________|

COST: 210 Gold, 70 Lumber, 3 Food.
ABILITIES: Flare (Researched at the Workshop).
STATS: HP			: 360
	 Attack rating	: 52-64 / 23-77 / 54-90 / 48-88 / 55-103
	 Attack Type	: Siege
	 Armor		: 0 /2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The true king of siege comes at the hands of the Humans and their mortar
teams. The Mortar Team, besides having the best training quote (MOOORTAAAAR
COMBAAAAATT!!), are very effective at what they do, not doing that much
damage, but with a faster rate of fire. They also learn a funny ability,
the Flare, which acts just like the Far Seer ability Far Sight, which
reveals a portion of the map, though it can only be used once.

 ____________
|            |
| STEAM TANK |
|____________|

COST: 230 Gold, 60 Lumber, 4 Food.
ABILITIES: None.
STATS: HP			: 700
	 Attack rating	: 45-55 / 46-66 / 47-77 / 48-88
	 Attack Type	: Siege
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Fortified
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Mechanical

While the Steam Tank is a serious building eater, it really doesn't lives
up anywhere else, as it has very short range as well as not being able
to target other units. Don't use them unless the enemy has a helluva lot
of defensive structures (Very likely if the enemy is playing Undead at
the late game).
 _______________
|               |
| GRYPHON RIDER |
|_______________|

COST: 330 Gold, 70 Lumber, 4 Food.
ABILITIES: Animal War Training (Researched at the Barracks), Storm Hammers
(Researched at the Gryphon Aviary).
STATS: HP			: 750
	 Attack rating	: 45-55  / 46-66
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


Virtually unchanged from Warcraft II, the Gryphon rider is a powerful
air unit with lots of potential. I haven't really use them all that
much (Is rare that I get that far into the tech tree), so my opinnion on
them is a bit limited, but with the two upgrades, Animal War Training
(+150 HPs) and Storm Hammer (splash damage), they become very effective.

| WATER ELEMENTAL |
|_________________|

COST: Summoned Unit.
ABILITIES: N/A
STATS: HP			: 450 / 600 / 900
	 Attack rating	: 21-29 / 31-39 / 41-49
	 Attack Type	: Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 1 / 2
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Medium
	 Attack Speed	: Medium
	 Clasification	: Summoned
(Level 1 elemental / level 2 elemental / level 3 elemental)

The Water Elemental is summoned from the ArchMage spell Summon Water
Elemental. There are three forms of them, all are ranged units, the first
one has only 450 HPs, but the second level has 600 and the third has 900!.
Very poweful in terms of summoning more than two, is a monstruous support
unit.

6.1.2.- Heroes.

a)ARCHMAGE:

Hailing from the magical kingdom of Dalaran, the Archmagi represent the
pinnacle of magical power. Weaving their intricate enchantments, these
crotchety old wizards defend humanity with all the magical powers at their
disposal. Mounted atop their trusty unicorn steeds, the Archmagi brandish
magical blades and ancient staves that serve to channel their fierce energies
in battle. Though gruff and slightly aloof, these experienced wizards are a
heartening sight upon any battlefield where the fate of humanity lies in peril.

The Archmage is one of the most impressive heroes in the terms of seriously
dominating the battlefield due to his interesting spells. Unfortunately,
is, alongside the Lich, the weakest hero, and is pretty easy to kill.
Thanks to his powerful abilities, behind a well placed melee units, is
a monster. Harmless if threatened up close and personal.

HERO TYPE: Support caster.

PROS: Wonderful spells, arguably best summoning spell in the game, never
ending mana pool, can approach different paths. Easy to control.
CONS: Ridiculously easy to kill, very low hit points, does not help allied
units.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Mountain King.
BEST ARMY: Footmen, priests, sorceress.

ABILITIES:
BLIZZARD:
One of the Alliance's most feared spells, Blizzard has become even more
effective and deadly since its original inception during the First War.
Calling down shards of freezing ice to batter and rend their enemies,
Archmagi have been known to rout entire armies using this spell.

The Blizzard Sends down ice shards down from the sky to damage units caught
in the area of effect. It has lost power from Warcraft II, but is still a
very good skill, and is the only direct way the Archmagi has to damage
enemies.

LEVEL 1: 6 waves, 30 damage per hit.
LEVEL 2: 8 waves, 40 damage per hit.
LEVEL 3: 10 waves, 50 damage per hit.

SUMMON WATER ELEMENTAL:

By use of this spell an Archmage can summon and control a powerful elemental
comprised of water and air vapors. These creatures, capable of hurling
torrents of rock-solid water at their enemies, cannot remain in the
physical world for long. Thus, after a short length of time, they will
vanish and return to their base liquid forms.

This spell is mainly the reason behind choosing an Archmage as a Hero.
It's insanely powerful, replenishing your army in the heat of the battle
is a comodity which can match the ever raising Necromancer tactics of the
Undead. Use this spell often in battle. All Water Elementals have ranged
piercing attack.

LEVEL 1: 450 hit points, 21-29 damage, Armor 0.
LEVEL 2: 675 hit points, 31-39 damage, Armor 1.
LEVEL 3: 900 hit points, 41-49 damage, Armor 2.

BRILLIANCE AURA:

Some Archmagi are so powerful that their very presence enhances the
energies of the spellcasters around them. These magical synergies manifest
in an aura of brilliance, which increases the younger spellcasters' energy
pools so that they can cast spells more often.

This is often the other ability chosen because it also affects the Archmage,
giving it a seemingly never ending mana pool in order to summon more Water
Elementals.

LEVEL 1: Adds 100% mana regeneration.
LEVEL 2: Adds 200% mana regeneration.
LEVEL 3: Adds 300% mana regeneration.

MASS TELEPORT
This extremely powerful spell allows the Archmage to teleport himself and
his army to any friendly units or buildings in the world. However, due to
the delicate nature of Mass Teleport, Archmagi can only teleport to places
where someone they know currently is.

I haven't been able to use this ability that much (I don't really expect
to use anything else than the two above spells), but is an interesting
magic which can wreack havoc everywhere. A well known strategy is to sneak
an invisible unit inside the enemy base, and use this to attack from the
inside.

ULTIMATE: Teleports 24 of nearby friendly units to a friendly ground
unit or structure.

b)MOUNTAIN KING:

The mountain kings, or 'Thanes' as they are known in Ironforge, are
the mightiest dwarven warriors of Khaz Modan. Wielding both
enchanted warhammers and battle-axes, these fierce fighters live to test
themselves against worthy opponents. Unconcerned with their race's preoccupation
with mechanical devices and the mining precious minerals, mountain kings live
only for battle. Dedicated to safeguarding the Alliance that saved their kingdom
during the Second War, the mountain kings can be counted upon to rally behind
any banner that stands between freedom and the ever-looming shadow of evil.

NOTES: The Mountain King is one of the most powerful melee heroes in the game
and one of my favorite due to his tendency to dominate bassically any other
hero in the game. Via intelligent use of Storm Bolt and Thunderclap, the
Mountain King can easily destroy single unit, and is a great hero to lead
armies into battle. Unstoppable late in the game.

HERO TYPE: Leading attack hero.

PROS: Lots of HP, very damaging, lots of ability suited to frontal combat.
Great damage soaker, can take out any hero (or unit, for those matters) one
on one combat. Difficult to escape from.
CONS: Small and easy to get lost in the battlefield. Difficult to use properly.
Not useful early in the game.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Archmage.
BEST ARMY: Footmen.

STORM BOLT:

The dwarves of the Aerie Peaks often practice hurling hammers, for sport and for
war. But, only the mountain kings of Ironforge can hurl a hammer so hard that it
stuns their enemies senseless. Thus, the Storm Bolt is one of the most dangerous
and powerful attacks of the mighty mountain kings.

The Storm Bolt is a powerful discharge at an enemy unit which does damage and
stuns them. Is very useful in trapping fleeing heroes, but in the heat of the
battle, Thunderclap is generally much better. Still, this has the huge
advantage of hitting air units, making this hero all the better.

LEVEL 1: 100 damage, 5 seconds stun.
LEVEL 2: 200 damage, 7 seconds stun.
LEVEL 3: 300 damage, 9 seconds stun.


THUNDER CLAP:

First used by Murgen Hammerfall to decimate a swathe of invading gnolls in the
Alterac Mountains, this powerful ability allows the mountain kings to slam the
ground and cause destructive shockwaves of energy to damage their nearby enemies.

The Thunder Clap is, on the other hand, a monstruous attack which cripples
enemies like there is no tommorrow. While it doesn't really does much damage,
is pretty useful against the Undead and its masses of Ghouls and Skeletons.

LEVEL 1: 60 damage, -25% movement speed, -25% attack rate.
LEVEL 2: 100 damage, -50% movement speed, -50% attack rate.
LEVEL 3: 140 damage, -70% movement speed, -70% attack rate.

BASH:

Mountain kings who learn the Bash technique strike with such fury that their
normal attacks can often stun and crush an enemy.

The Bash is a passive ability which gives change to deal less damage but
stunning opponents with a single strike. It isn't very threatening by
itself, but combined with the power of Thunder Clap and Storm Bolt, the
mere ability of stunning with any impact complements the arsenal of the
Mountain King. I recommend to put points of this after you have top on
your favorite attacking tech.

LEVEL 1: 15% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.
LEVEL 2: 25% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 35% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.

AVATAR:

By focusing the energies of the dwarves' "newly discovered enchanted heritage",
the mountain kings can grow in size and strength - and take on the physical
characteristics of carved stone. In this form, they are impervious to magical
attacks and have greatly increased durability.

The Avatar is some serious stuff: Make an already powerful creature even more
powerful is obscene. The most important thing here is the fact that it makes
the MK immune to magic. One of the best ultimates. After 1.05, you can even
heal him with Holy Light!. Take that, you Demon Hunters.

ULTIMATE: 5 bonus armor, 500 bonus hit points, 20 bonus damage,
spell immunity.


c)PALADIN:

The Archbishop, Alonsus Faol, prior to the Second War, founded the Order
of the Knights of the Silver Hand. The holy knights, or paladins, as they are
commonly called, led the battle against the evil orcs and helped to save the
lands of Lordaeron from ruin. Though it has been nearly fifteen years since
the end of the Second War, the paladins still work selflessly to protect
humanity from the gnawing jaws of evil. Empowered by the Light, these
mighty warriors brandish both their warhammers and holy fire in the battle
against all who would trample the meek and innocent.

NOTES: The Paladin is a very defensive hero which doesn't really works all
the way it should. While his abilities are very powerful, the Paladin is
ussually the first one to fall in battle for some reason, even when Divine
Shield is active, it's only delaying it. However, if you can, somehow,
keep him alive, his spells can help a lot early on, and his ultimate is great.

(BTW, where the hell is his horse?)

HERO TYPE: Support hero.

PROS: Impressive abilities. Fairly resistant to direct damage. Can make
some units ridiculously good.
CONS: Weak in hand to hand combat. Useless with other units.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Mountain King.
BEST ARMY: Knights.

HOLY LIGHT:

By channeling the positive energies of the Light, paladins can form a wave of
healing energy to mend their comrades' wounds. This holy energy is also
capable of causing damage to the undead and their dark masters.

Holy Light is a very good skill. It can be used to extend both the life
of Griphons or heroes, and can damage undead for quite some HPs. Is arguably
his best spell.

LEVEL 1: Heals 200, 100 damage to undead.
LEVEL 2: Heals 400, 200 damage to undead.
LEVEL 3: Heals 600, 300 damage to undead .

DIVINE SHIELD:

Empowered by the Light, paladins can surround themselves with an
impenetrable barrier of positive energy. While they are encased in it,
physical and magical attacks cannot do them any harm.

Divine Shield is an important spell due to the fact that Paladins are
in fact defenseless if treated hand to hand either by heroes or powerful
fighting units. What it exactly does is makes you invulnerable by magic
or physical attacks. Wonderful.

LEVEL 1: Lasts 10 seconds.
LEVEL 2: Lasts 20 seconds.
LEVEL 3: Lasts 30 seconds.

DEVOTION AURA:

The mere presence of a powerful paladin can instill great courage and inner
strength in those around them. This powerful, spiritual surge actually increases
the defensive capabilities of those gathered near the paladin.

This skill isn't actually all that great in paper, but combined with the
humans naturally high armor, you'll know that it is. A Fully upgraded knight,
for example, becomes a walking tank with 11 armor. I think that's as far as
armor goes, because is a ridiculous ammount of armor.

LEVEL 1: Increases base armor by 1.5.
LEVEL 2: Increases base armor by 3.
LEVEL 3: Increases base armor by 4.5.

RESURRECTION:

By invoking the grandeur of the Light, mighty paladins can bring recently
slain comrades back to life, enabling them to fight on for justice, freedom
and the glory of Lordaeron.

This is one of those spells that can change battles. Say you attack with a
group of knights, a Mountain King and some Mortar Teams, as well as a
Paladin. It doesn't really matter what happens but you are guarateed to get
some damage done. Then, move the paladin inside the dead bodies of your
knights... and raise them again! Unfortunately, you don't choose which units
you want to raise... still a marvelous spell.

ULTIMATE: Revives the corpses of 6 friendly units

Farms add food and... nothing else. Okay... There is a point to make,
and is that farms are quite fast to build. An old Warcraft II strategy
was to build a massive wall of FARMS to block the enemy. Pretty effective,
though now is harder to do. I'll leave you up to the investigation.

| ALTAR OF KINGS |
|________________|

GOLD		: 300
LUMBER	: 100
HP		: 900
ARMOR		: 5

The Altar of Kings allows you to call forth the mighty heroes to aid
you in battle, as well as reviving them. The first hero only
requires five food, but subsequent heroes will require 500 gold and
100 lumber as well as the food to come. The first hero can be summoned
right away, while the second and third requires a tier upgrade.

The cost of reviving a hero is despicted in this quick table:

Level 1 : 200 gold, 5 population space.
Level 2 : 250 gold, 5 population space.
Level 3 : 300 gold, 5 population space.
Level 4 : 350 gold, 5 population space.
Level 5 : 400 gold, 5 population space.
Level 6 : 450 gold, 5 population space.
Level 7 : 500 gold, 5 population space.
Level 8 : 550 gold, 5 population space.
Level 9 : 600 gold, 5 population space.
Level 10: 650 gold, 5 population space.

6.1.4.- General Strategies.

One of the reason some people use them (And why I enjoy using them) is
the Archmage rush. Simply put, build a farm and an Altar, then a barracks.
As soon as the Archmage is out, send it out with Water Elementals to
harrass the enemy. VERY effective. You can keep training Footmen to
prepare the assault. It doesn't really matters if he dies, so long as
you do enough damage to prevent a subsequent counter-strike.

If you have any doubts about choosing a hero, go for the Archmage. I
can't stress it enough. He is the best human hero, and one of the
best heroes of the game.

The Footmen are some of the best units in the game. With 420 HPs, they
can withstand lots of pain. I ussually go with lots of Footmen
together with an Archmage. Well, massing basic units is ussually
wonderful in terms of strategy, but just be careful about sending twelve
footmen against twelve... Frost Wyrms. Duh.

The Humans are also fairly easy to work with, for crying out loud,
they are humans. They possess also good spellcasters, the priest is
one of the best support units in the game.

Based on my own experiences, the humans reach their peak of power once
you can continually train footmen and/or knights, and back them up with
an Archmage/several priests. Is as easy as that. Human games are won
by assaulting enemy bases with lots of Footmen and Knights.

A funny strategy is to just build about 6 Steam Tanks, find some way to
enter the enemy base, and let it rain down on key structures. It isn't just
funny, is also very effective.

VS HUMANS

Battling humans versus humans isn't as funny as it was Terrans vs terrans.
You got to keep control of creeps, and kill as many as possible. Very
likely, the enemy will go for Archmage, and try to make life miserable for
you with elementals. You, of course, are up to the same. Don't train
Riflemen until the end of the game when Gryphons become dangerous. You
might as well forget about Mortar Teams, and instead, just jump at their
base with Steamtanks.

The Humans fall rather easily to the footmen-priest-sorceress combo
led by a Archmage, and followed by a Mountain King to take out their
Archmage, or face their own Mountain King.

VS ORCS

The orcs have one big advantage over you and that is that all their heroes
are much more dangerous than yours. That makes a Mountain King an important
unit to make.

Furthermore, the orc units are brutal. Grunts totally destroy ANY other
basic unit, and even put up a fight against Knights and Huntress. And
you can't rely on "I have twenty footmen, he has twelve grunts", he
will beat you up. The Archmage Rush works very well, as well as massive
gryphon strikes. Another unit to take care of are Shamans. They can cast
bloodlust like hell raining down on you.

Counters? Well, superior air force is an start. But I'm afraid I still
find the Wyverns to be the best air units in the game. So is a good
idea to concentrate on Priests and Sorceress. Keeping grunts distracted
hacking at Footmen, while priests and sorceress wreck havoc from
behind. Aim Polymorph at the Grunts, and (if present in numbers from 5 to
10) Taurens. Riflemen become an important part of your force for additional
firepower if Wyverns comes.

VS UNDEAD

Ahhh... the Undead. Superior numbers, dangerous heroes and some of the
most disgusting things in the game. The joy of being the bad guy.

The Undead rely heavily on their Ghouls and Dreadlords. Further in the
game, Abominations and Frost Wyrms. Or he might as well just use Liches
and lots of Ghouls and Necromancers to simply put an end to your economy.
Keeping yourself ahead on the attack is a good idea. Attack early with
many footmen and a Paladin while training Riflemen to stop Abomination
attacks. The Mountain king is almost useless as a Dreadlord will just
put it to sleep while decimating the rest of your army with its aura
and the Inferno spell. Don't let your heroes rests, hit them with any
unit as soon as possible.

Crypt Fiends and Death Knights are, as of now, an almost impossible
match up for the Humans. Make sure you get a Mountain King on
these matchs.

If the enemy is using Liches, you might be in for a long fight.
Frost Nova is one of the most powerful spells in the game. Fortunately,
the Lich is the weakest hero in the game. About the Death Knight, treat
it like a Paladin, just with a better aura.

VS NIGHT ELF

If something is unbalanced, is probably the match up with the NE. The
Huntress are some of the most powerful units in the game, and they
COMPLETELY OWN footmen. That's the big deal about Huntresses.

Your idea is to make... well, more Footmen. Not much can be done
except that, more units. Two barracks soon, and a third one as fast
as money allows it. You just got to be fast.

There is something else, and that is that the NE are the other race
that can seriously screw up at the start. Fortunately, the thing
is to use a Keeper Of the Grove to try to choke your production early
with Entangle. It isn't as effective as an Archmage rush. Also,
keep in mind that the NE heroes are pretty weak. Just don't let that
Priestess of the moon go nuts on you with that Starfall.

Later in the game, the Demon Hunter will be certainly a force to be
reckoned. You might consider using a Mountain King as the second hero,
hiring him as soon as possible which is one of the heroes that can
effectively stop a Metamorphed Demon Hunter.

6.2.- The Orcish Horde.

The Horde possesses the game's most powerful ground units, including the
savage Grunt and gargantuan Tauren. The Orcish Horde has modest air and ranged
capabilities, but their true strength lies in their brute strength and raw
melee power. Even the magic of their spellcasters is designed to enhance
their frontline troops. (From the Manual)

The Horde is, as it name implies, pure power. The orc units are serious
beat down machines, starting from the Grunt, and ending with the Shamans.
Another unit which is the only one which can stand up against an abomination
is the Tauren, is property of the Orcs.

High points are durable units, wonderful attack power, the Wyverns, modest
siege ability, best support spell in the game. Powerful heroes. Cheapest
rush ever thought in any strategy game available, the Tower Rush.

Low points include expensive units, weak ranged units, only one air unit,
some units and heroes (namely the Tauren and the Tauren Chieftain) are
simply too big to gang up on an enemy. Complicated defense.

6.2.1.- Units.
 ______
|      |
| PEON |
|______|

COST: 90 gold, 1 food.
ABILITIES: Pillage (researched at the town hall).
STATS: HP			: 250
	 Attack rating	: 7-8
	 Attack Type	: Normal
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Very Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The peon is the same deal as the peasant, except you can't repair a
building to make it appear faster. It is slightly more resistant, as
well as being able to get into burrows to defend themselves.
 _______
|       |
| GRUNT |
|_______|

COST: 235 gold, 3 food.
ABILITIES: Pillage (researched at the Town Hall), Berserk Strenght
(researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 700
	 Attack rating	: 18-21 / 19-25 / 20-29 / 21-33
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 1 / 3 / 5 / 7
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


For a unit which doesn't requires lumber to train, the grunts are serious
candidates for the best unit in the game. Is simply too powerful for a
tier 1 unit, it can stand against any unit, and is easy to work with.
With the Berserker strenght, Grunts become fighting machines with the
extra HPs. Pillage makes it even a thief, salvaging money from buildings.
Now, all of this power comes at a very steep price.
 __________________
|                  |
| TROLL HEADHUNTER |
|__________________|

COST: 160 gold, 20 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Troll Regeneration (researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 350
	 Attack rating	: 23-27 / 24-32 / 25-37 / 26-42
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Very Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Headhunter isn't exactly the solution to your problems, but is a
competent and reliable ranged unit for killing that freakish dragon
with a Crown of Kings +5, or to avoid getting crushed by a massive
Gryphon attack or a Chimerae drudge (does that ever happens?).
Their ability boost their HP regeneration. Don't completely
avoid them, unless you seriously expect some thousands of Footmen
or Archers knocking at your door for the rest of the game.
Shine against Abominations or Taurens.
 _____________
|             |
| WOLF RAIDER |
|_____________|

COST: 210 gold, 40 Lumber, 3 food.
ABILITIES: Esnare (Researched at the Beastiary), Pillage (researched
at the Town Hall).
STATS: HP			: 610
	 Attack rating	: 23-27 / 24-32 / 25-37 / 26-42
	 Attack Type	: Melee Siege
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Raiders are an interesting unit: is a melee siege unit. It's
pretty good, but that doesn't means is a good idea to use them.
Let me get this straight: It just isn't nearly as good as the Grunts.
However (I haven't tried), technically is a good unit for quick
strikes at the enemy base. Their esnare ability traps an air unit
and binds it to the ground for some seconds to attack it with
melee units. Again, is just a much better idea to use Wyverns or
headhunters to get rid of air units.
 __________
|          |
| CATAPULT |
|__________|

COST: 260 gold, 70 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: none.
STATS: HP			: 425
	 Attack rating	: 82-102 / 83-123 / 84-144 / 85-165
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Siege
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Mechanical


The Catapult, on the other hand, is exactly what you need if you want
to submit an enemy to siege. They are the most powerful siege weapons
in the game, and with their long range, you can count of them. Take
into account their minimum range.
 ____________
|            |
| KODO BEAST |
|____________|

COST: 300 gold, 60 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: Drums Aura (Researched at the bestiary).
STATS: HP			: 1000
	 Attack rating	: 16 / 20
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 1
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Very Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Kodo Beast is a funny support unit. It sports a weak ranged attack
as well as some HPs (1000), but has a great ability, Drums aura, which adds
more damage to your allies. Well coordinated, this aura can really help,
and is worth the four supply you're paying. The Devour ability eats away
an enemy unit, and the unit is completely disabled until it is killed inside
the Kodo (which will slowly drain the HP of the devoured unit), or the
Kodo is killed.

| TAUREN |

COST: 325 gold, 80 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: Pulverize (researched at the Taurem Totem).
STATS: HP			: 1300
	 Attack rating	: 30-39 / 31-43 / 32-50 /33-57
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 3 / 5 / 7 / 9
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


Well, with 1300 HPs as well as good attack rating, these things are the
biggest non-hero things any race can train. Unfortunately, they are
HUGE!, and that's VERY bad on this game. They cannot gang up on an
enemy with ease, and sometimes they just seem to take a walk around
the battlefield tring to find a place to enter the heat. A few of these
will do you great good (they seem to attract fire pretty well),  but don't
replace grunts with them. Pulverize gives them an small chance to cause
an area attack, pretty good against masses of Ghouls, and the chance is
pretty good also (around 25 percent).

| SHAMAN |
|________|

COST: 150 gold, 20 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Adept Training, Master Training (researched at the Spirit
Lodge)
STATS: HP			: 355
	 Attack rating	: 8-9
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Shaman has the huge advantage of being an orc unit. Why, you ask?
because he is the one to harness the almighty spell BLOODLUST.
This spell boost attack speed and power to high hell bringing the
demons down on the enemies with your units. The downside is that they
become even bigger, so they are somewhat more sloppy to move on the battle
field. His other spells (Purge, which abolishes magic, slows and
destroys summoned units, and lightning shield) aren't actually
that useful.

| TROLL WITCH DOCTOR |

COST: 170 gold, 25 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Adept Training, Master Training (Researched at the Spirit

STATS: HP			: 315

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Troll Witch Doctor was a unit that I was looking forward to use.
Unfortunately, is one of the most useless units in the game. He has three
abilities: Sentry Ward, which places an invisible post which detects
invisible units, Stasis Trap, which places a trap which triggers an stun
area effect when an enemy unit aproaches, and Healing Ward, which places
a ward which heals nearby units. As you see, he PLACES stuff, which doesn't
really makes him good to have on the heat of the battle, as well
as his abilities being very mana-intensive.

| WYVERN RIDER |
|______________|

COST: 310 gold, 40 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: Envenomed Spears (Researched at the Bestiary).
STATS: HP			: 600

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Wyvern Rider is seriously one of the best units in the game, mainly
because of its speed, which makes it very good on large numbers,  doing
disasters against enemy bases with their skill, which makes its attack
far more effective poisoning their victims. Unfortunately, is about
as hard to get rid of as a mosquito with its miserable 600 HPs, and is
rather costly.

Summoned by the Far Seer with his spell Feral Spirit, The wolves are
a worthy addition as meatshield and disruptive elements in the
battlefield and in quick stealth attacks on the enemy's bases. Their
bad points are their pathethic endurance.

6.2.2.- Heroes.

a) FAR SEER:

Far Seers are ancient orcs who represent the pinnacle of shamanistic power.
These powerful shamans are counted amongst Thrall's closest advisors and
are constantly in tune with the workings and maneuverings of the horde.
Farseers are not only tied to the elements of the earth and sky, but are
also adept at foretelling the future. Their wisdom is outshined only by
their courage and ferocity in combat. When the enemies of the horde advance,
the farseers mount their loyal dire wolves and wade into battle wielding all
the elemental powers of their shamanistic birthright.

The Far Seer is one of the most impressive heroes in the game, and it
really doesn't seems to be it. His spells Feral Spirit and Chain Lightning
are incredible effective at creeping and base assault, and its a great
partner to any other hero. However, not everthing is roses, he doesn't
has an aura, and has about the worst ultimate ability.

HERO TYPE: Support Hero.

PROS: Powerful spells, and a wide array of abilities. Level 3 Far sight
is the closest thing to a legal hack on the game. Useful in several
situations.
CONS: Unimpressive stats. Rather easy to kill. Unable to deal lots of
damage quickly. Level 1 and 2 Far Sight is useless.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Tauren Chieftain.
BEST ARMY: Grunts and Shamans.

CHAIN LIGHTNING

Farseers have the ability to cast bolts of lightning so powerful that they
continue to seek out enemy troops in a wide area of effect. The raging bolts
continue to strike new victims until the spell's energies finally deplete.

Chain Lightning is pretty useful for creeping at first, but at its
final level it gives the shock to as many as EIGHT enemies, not doing
that much damage, but against Night Elves and Undead units is very
useful. It also gives a lot of psychological advantage due to the enormous
noise it does.

LEVEL 1: 85 damage, jumps 4 times.
LEVEL 2: 125 damage, jumps 6 times.
LEVEL 3: 180 damage, jumps 8 times.

FAR SIGHT

Far Seers have the uncanny ability to percieve distant places and events
through a form of spirit sight. This ability allows them to anticipate enemy
movements and maintain the element of surprise for the horde's
fighting forces.

While it reveal like half of the map on the third level, in the first two
levels is way too costly and useless to build it up. Even worse, later
in the game, scouting becomes less of a factor and this is best left
unnatended in favor of the other two (more powerful) abilities.

LEVEL 1: Reveals a small area for 150 mana.
LEVEL 2: Reveals a large area for 100 mana.
LEVEL 3: Reveals a huge area for 50 mana.

FERAL SPIRIT

One of the farseers' most otherworldy powers is their ability to call forth
powerful wolven apparitions. As the Farseer gains experience, more powerful
wolves may be summoned to his side.

Feral Spirit is one of the most powerful summons in the game. Their
final level is incredible effective at combat and annoying enemies
without detection. Problem is, their 400 hit points are meager in
open combat.

LEVEL 1: 2 wolves with 200 hit points, 11-12 damage, 0 armor.
LEVEL 2: 2 wolves with 300 hit points, 16-17 damage, 0 armor.
LEVEL 3: 2 wolves with 400 hit points, 21-22 damage, 0 armor
 + Critical Strike + Invisibility.

EARTHQUAKE

Part of the Far Seers' power over nature is the ability to command the fury
of the earth. When roused, farseers can cause the earth to quake violently.
When called with precision, can cause heavy destruction to enemy structures
and slow hapless foes.

The Earthquake isn't exactly the best weapon in the game, but sometimes
is pretty good. I was once playing against three guys who used lots of
towers, and this thing shone like there was no tommorrow. The slowing
part is good for avoiding peons repairing stuff. Put points here when
your skill of choice is topped.

ULTIMATE: 50 damage/second to buildings, slowing units by 75%,
          lasts 25 seconds.


b) TAUREN CHIEFTAIN:

These elder tauren warriors lead their tribes in daily life as well as in
battle. Ceremoniously adorned with the ancient totems of their tribes,
chieftains uphold the honor and simplicity of the proud tauren culture.
When roused by battle, the gigantic chieftains employ enormous halberds that
are capable of tearing through solid trees with one mighty swipe. The
chieftains are fascinated by the orcs, especially their young leader, Thrall.
They see an opportunity to help the orcs return to their traditional roots
by providing a strong example of honor and courage through all
tauren warriors.

NOTES: The Tauren Chieftain is always a dangerous enemy to encounter due to its
array of powerful fighting abilities. Until level seven, its slowness is
what keeps some people away from him, furthermore, is hellish big.
However, at level seven is when he truly becomes a fighting machine, with
LOTS of HPs, fast attack rate, and very damaging attacks.

HERO TYPE: Leading Attack Hero.

PROS: Very damaging and resistant. Two area damage abilities which
deal good damage and one of them even stuns the opponents. Freakish
difficult to kill and drive away after level 6. Impressive stats.
Best aura in the game.
CONS: Ridiculously big and thus unable to reach battle with ease. His
two fighting abilities are very mana intensive. Resurrection can be
easily wasted and has a longass cooldown time.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Far Seer.
BEST ARMY: Tauren and Head Hunters..

SHOCKWAVE

The mighty chieftains can swing their totems so hard that their impacts
create powerful linear shockwaves that can damage any enemies bold
enough to stand before them.

Powerful stuff. The Shockwave is a good "entrance spell", is like a
"Hello, I'm knocking our door!". Well, let me explain myself. This
spell is seriously good for breaking enemy formations, dealing those
last 150 points of damage to that hero, and the such.

LEVEL 1: 75 damage to land units in a line.
LEVEL 2: 130 damage to land units in a line.
LEVEL 3: 200 damage to land units in a line.

WAR STOMP

The tauren's massive totem can impact the ground with such force that
every enemy within a wide radius of the chieftain is damaged and stunned
for a short period of time.

Well, do I like this ability. This thing damages and stuns enemies
around the chieftain. It doesn't really does that much damage, but
stunning enemies like this is terrifying. This is why a chieftain
in the middle of the battle is so annoying. Using this spell, the
chieftain can singlehandedly dominate the battlefield.

LEVEL 1: 25 damage, 3 seconds stun.
LEVEL 2: 50 damage, 4 seconds stun.
LEVEL 3: 75 damage, 5 seconds stun.

ENDURANCE AURA

So heartening and stirring are the mighty chieftains that they exude an aura
of strength and courage to all who accompany them. The chieftains' auras help
their comrades to run and attack more quickly.

The Endurance Aura is arguably the best aura alongside the Death Knight's
Unholy Aura. Paired with Bloodlust, it can severely crunch the opposition.
A very good idea is to go first War Stomp, then top Endurance Aura and
Shockwave. First go for endurance aura before Shockwave, until you have
enough mana to work with both abilities. If you see lots of ghouls,
well, you better buy some mana potions.

LEVEL 1: +10% movement speed, 5% attack rate.
LEVEL 2: +20% movement speed, 10% attack rate.
LEVEL 3: +30% movement speed, 15% attack rate.

REINCARNATION
The tauren chieftains hold such sacred bonds with their Earthmother that
they can actually be reincarnated after they die in combat. Though this
ability is very rare, it makes the wise, benevolent chieftains a dangerous
foe to threaten.

What else is there to be said about the Reincarnation? This is simply the
best passive ability in the game. Revive the chieftain? Good, but he will
come back with FULL MANA AND HEALTH. That's much better. Is like a life
insurance. Get this thing as soon as possible. A point to be noted is
that this ability might backfire as free exp and money to the enemy, so
be really careful when you let the unit revive, as the ability
takes four minutes to cooldown.

ULTIMATE: When killed, the tauren chieftain will be revived
automatically.

c)BLADEMASTER:

Though their numbers are few, the seasoned blademasters represent an elite
fighting force within the horde. These skilled swordsmen were once part of
the ill-fated Burning Blade clan that consumed itself in the throes of
demonic corruption. With their clan scattered and broken, the proud
blademasters swore a grim oath to free themselves and their brethren from
demonic control once and for all. Under Thrall's command, the blademasters
have once again joined the horde and serve as the young warchief's personal
guard. Though blademasters are masters of stealth and guile, they value
personal honor above all else.

NOTES: The Blademasters are the most damaging heroes in the game thanks
to their Critical Hit passive ability, and as such, are cultivated and
trained by some Orc players. Powerful in solitaire missions, and
cunning in open Battle, the Blademaster is one of the most well rounded
Heroes in the game.

HERO TYPE: Specialist Hero.

PROS: Obscene damage output. Can be used for stealth missions and
open combat equally well. Quick and small. Difficult to kill and
easy to escape.
CONS: Unimpressive ultimate. Can be difficult to keep alive at
low levels. Toe-to-toe against other warrior heroes it still keeps
the lower hand. So-so stats.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Far Seer.
BEST ARMY: Headhunters.

WIND WALK

So adept and agile are the blademasters that they can move so quickly that
they appear to be invisible to the naked eye.

Powerful ability in order to perform blitz stealth attacks on the opponent's
worker line as long as he doesn't has detectors ¬_¬. Very effective tactic
at the start of the game. Useful for escaping battles or positioning
your BM as well. It also allows the BM to deal extra damage when
he attacks out of invisibility.

Level 1: 75 mana, +10% movement speed, lasts 20 seconds; invisible.
Level 2: 75 mana, +40% movement speed, lasts 40 seconds; invisible.
Level 3: 75 mana, +70% movement speed, lasts 60 seconds; invisible.

MIRROR IMAGE

One of the blademasters' more mystical abilities is to create duplicate
phantom images of themselves. Though the phantom images can move about
freely of their own volition, they are not true entities unto themselves.

If you can master the art of controling the illusions, this ability will
prove to be unvaluable for the BM to stay alive and confuse the opponent.
The Illusions deal no damage and take all damage from spells, so a
wary Dreadlord, Mountain King or a Tauren Chieftain might be able to
tell the difference rather easily. Use it to avoid direct confrontations
with Creeps.

Mirror Image dispells ANY stats on the BM.

LEVEL 1: Creates 1 illusion.
LEVEL 2: Creates 2 illusions.
LEVEL 3: Creates 3 illusions.

CRITICAL STRIKE

By channeling their potent powers in one focused strike, blademasters can
cause even greater damage to their enemies.

If the ability to deal 240 damage in one hit appeals to you, use this
passive ability. If not, sell the game :). This ability alone makes the BM
worth using. While 15% seems like quite a low chance (only 1 out of 7 hits
more or less will deal the extra damage), the BM naturally speedy attack
rate will make it much more daunting that what it seems at first.

LEVEL 1: 15% chance,; 2x normal damage.
LEVEL 2: 15% chance, 3x normal damage.
LEVEL 3: 15% chance, 4x normal damage.

BLADESTORM

By focusing their warrior energies, blademasters can become living
cyclones of fighting rage. Spinning their great blades faster than the
naked eye can see, they are capable of simultaneously damaging any enemy
troops in their vicinity.

Unimpressive Ultimate, which might wreck havoc if used correctly, but
is perhaps way too risky to the Blademaster to intent to use it to its
full potential. Works wonders versus the Night elves and mass casters,
though.

ULTIMATE: 110 damage per second to nearby enemy land units.

| ALTAR OF STORMS |
|_________________|

GOLD		: 300
LUMBER	: 100
HP		: 900
ARMOR		: 5

The Altar of Storms allows you to call forth the mighty heroes to aid
you in battle, as well as reviving them. The first hero only
requires five food, but subsequent heroes will require 500 gold and
100 lumber as well as the food to come. The first hero can be summoned
right away, while the second and third requires a tier upgrade.

The cost of reviving a hero is despicted in this quick table:

Level 1 : 200 gold, 5 population space.
Level 2 : 250 gold, 5 population space.
Level 3 : 300 gold, 5 population space.
Level 4 : 350 gold, 5 population space.
Level 5 : 400 gold, 5 population space.
Level 6 : 450 gold, 5 population space.
Level 7 : 500 gold, 5 population space.
Level 8 : 550 gold, 5 population space.
Level 9 : 600 gold, 5 population space.
Level 10: 650 gold, 5 population space.

6.2.4.- General Strategies.

The Orcs have several advantages in open combat. One of them
is the fact that all orc units with an armor share the same armor upgrade,
saving you some big bucks to afford your very expensive abilities.
Another one the the great Bloodlust, arguably the best spell in the game.

Every single orcish strategy instantly includes Shamans and Bloodlust. From
Wyverns to Headhunters, Bloodlust turns each and every of these units
become monstrous attackers with this spell cast on them.

While you have technically the most powerful base unit, they are
way too slow to build, so you might want to skip them. Headhunters,
while fragile and slow, are perhaps the best unit you can use early
in the game until you have a more stable economy. I'm particulary
fond of Wyvern Riders as well later in the game, so perhaps Grunts
are better left behind.

The Orcs are also the one race that can use their static defensive
buildings offensively. A very effective creeping strategy is to
build a couple of towers at night just out of range of the creeps,
and lure them with your hero (Preferably the BM for this tactic),
and take them out rather easily. Unfortunately, as their attack type
was switched from Normal to Piercing they are not effective at
base attacking anymore.

VS HUMANS

Humans have a huge advantage thanks to their Sorceress and their
Slow spell, which really wreacks havoc in your heavy melee
units, and their cheap and small units.

For a change, I recommend using a mix of Headhunters and Shamans
led by a Tauren Chieftain on this match up. Only your superior
fight power can help you on this battle. Against humans is perhaps
the best time to try the Wyvern Rush as their aerial defenses are
certainly the weakest ones out of them in the game, and their
Riflemen are easily taken cared of by Grunts or Tauren.

The mass caster is definitely a problem. While technically the
Tuaren's Pulverize ability is designed to take care of this,
it obviously doesn't works as well as it should. Via an effective
management of your unit production to adapt your army to the
situations, this match up should be winnable.

VS ORCS

The Blademaster shines on this match up as Orcs have little ways
of stealth detection, plus his high damage output is well used
to take out annoying Shamans and Witch Doctors.

Wyvern Rush is quite effective on this match, but the
Grunts-Headhunter-Shaman combo is the more sure-fire way to break
through them. Furthermore, this will be a battle of attrition, where
superior numbers and hit and run tactis should serve you well.

Consider investing on a second hero as early as possible.

VS UNDEAD

Versus the Undead the Orcs face a difficult to solve problem as
the Crypt Fiend - Death Knight - Lich combo running rampant
these months is mighty difficult to break. Fortunately,
the high cost of this strategy (Crypt Fiends take 250 gold and
40 lumber for a 550 HP, slow attacking unit), allows you to
concentrate in mass Grunts, effectively using them as they
are supposed to be used, to counter ranged unit.

Via a healthy dose of Bloodlust, the Grunts should be able to
dominate an equitative army of Crypt Fiends. I recommend
heartily to use the Far Seer as the first hero and Chieftain
as the second, to make sure that the DK are killed, as they
are the most dangerous Undead hero to face.

If the opponent is going Ghouls-Dreadlord, you should go with
Taurens later in the game, and a Chieftain early to counter
the masses.

VS NIGHT ELVES

Night Elves Demon Hunter - Archer - Druids of the Talon Combo is
a tough stone to move out of the Orcs' shoe. With hit and
run tactics, the Archers can deal an extraordinary ammount
of damage while the Demon Hunter takes the hits and the Druids
dissapear units.

The Far Seer, backed by mass Headhunters and Shamans is
your best bet to survive until you can mass produce Grunts.
While the Wyvern Rush is almost useless against these,
the Shamans are very effective to push your army to the limit
in order to win extra firepower to outmatch the weaker
elves. Later in the game, a Massive force of tauren can finish
them off shall you have survived enough to face them.

The Three Hero Strategy is very viable against the Night Elves.

To counter the Metamorphed Demon Hunter, the only real way is
with a Tauren Chieftain. Stomp on it, and make sure you
can draw fire away from your Grunts or Headhunters.

6.3.- The Night Elves Sentinel:

The Night Elves of Kalimdor are a mighty race that emphasizes
mobility, ranged firepower and spellcraft. They do not have the
brute strenght of other races, but their skill with the bow
and magic more than compensate for this deficiency.(From the
Manual)

The Night Elves are a race of ranged units. They aren't very
resistant, but their hit and run tactics are difficult to overcome
and their units are quick and small and thus difficult to
keep up with. With many ranged units and powerful spellcasters,
they are an interesting and powerful race to play.

The Wisps actually morph into ancients, but not regular buildings.
They also need to entangle mines with a nearby Tree of Life or
similar in order to get money. Ancients can be uprooted in order
to function like regular unit, but losing their fortified armor
and getting a heavy armor. They will also attack nearby enemy
units.

Night Elves only regenerate during night, but their regeneration
rates are twice as fast as humans or orcs.

High points include cheapass spells, powerful spellcasters units,
impregnable air defense, good heroes and lots of abilities to play
with, all of them very useful.

Low points include very low HP and defense, weak melee unit, lack
of powerful air units. Expensive and difficult to use.

6.3.1.- Units:
 ______

	 Attack Type	: n/A
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: N/A
	 Clasification	: Biological.

The Wisps are your basic workers which build, repair (or Renew),
and gather resources for your army. For a change, these units,
instead of gathering the resources and bringing them back, they
just keep on an entangled Gold Mine or tree, taking out the
resource without having to travel back. They can also Detonate,
emptying mana pools caught in the area of effect, but they can't
attack oO.
 ________
|        |
| ARCHER |
|________|

COST: 150 Gold, 10 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Mount Hyppogriff, Improved Bows (Researched at the Ancient

STATS: HP			: 260
	 Attack rating	: 19-22 / 20-26 / 21-30 / 22-34
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological.

Your basic fighting unit, the Archers are ranged units which
can be upgraded to a very capable fighting unit. While they
have very low HP, they deal a lot of damage, and can be massed
easily. Powerful when paired with a Demon hunter, obscene with
a Priestess of the Moon. Like all Female Night Elves, they can
Shadowmeld at night and become invisible as long as they don't
move.
 __________
|          |
| HUNTRESS |
|__________|

COST: 225 Gold, 20 Lumber, 3 Food.
ABILITIES: Upgraded Moon Glaive (Researched at the Ancient of War),
Hide, Sentinel (Researched at the Ancient of War).
STATS: HP			: 550

	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: Medium
	 Armor Type		: 1 / 3 / 5 / 7
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Huntresses are a mighty powerful unit which can become
very dangerous if used properly. Via mass huntresses you
can easily attack bases or forces and obliterate them thanks to
their glaive attack which hits up to three enemy units. Powerful,
but easily countered due to their low armor. Their Sentinel
ability alows them to set a guardian owl with true sight to a nearby
tree. Quite useful. Like all Female Night Elves, they can
Shadowmeld at night and become invisible as long as they don't
move.
 __________
|          |
| BALLISTA |
|__________|

COST: 245 Gold, 85 Lumber, 4 Food.
ABILITIES: Impale (Researched at the Ancient of War).
STATS: HP			: 380
	 Attack rating	: 56-69 / 57-83 / 58-97 / 59-111
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Siege
	 Armor		: 2
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Very Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Mechanical

The Ballistae are an effective but costly and difficult to use
siege engine. It's still weaker than others and their upgrade is
actually just to attack other units or masses of buildings, so
is certainly not the best of them. The Impale ability allows the
Battlista to deal splash damage with each shot.
 _______
|       |
| DRYAD |
|_______|

COST: 170 Gold, 60 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Abolish Magic (Researched at the Ancient of Lore), Slow Poison,
Magic Inmunnity.
STATS: HP			: 435
	 Attack rating	: 16-18 / 17-21 / 18-24 / 19-27
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Fast
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Dryad is an anti-caster unit which is also an efficient and quick
ranged unit. Via hit and run tactics they can overrun almost any
other magic unit in the game with their magic immunity and their abolish
magic. Abolish Magic dispells magic effects and deals damage to
summoned units, while slow poison deals 4 damage per second for a minute
and slows the victim's movement speed.

	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 3 / 5 / 7 / 9
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological


The Druid of the Claw is both your heavy melee unit and your basic caster.
This unit is an effective fighter unit, but his true strenght is his
ability to cast Roar, which upgrades the attack strenght of nearby
friendly units, Rejuvenate, which heal units over time, and, more
important, their Bear Form, which changes them into bears, with
more hit points, and a much more powerful attack rating, but can't
cast spells in that form and his mana regeneration is REALLY slow.

	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Druid of the Talon is an advanced spell caster which specializes as
support magic user. He can use Faerie Fairy, which lowers the defense
of the affected unit, as well as keeping the unit visible no matter
where it goes. He can also use Cyclone, a cheapass spell which disables a
target unit for a certain ammount of time. Finally, he can change into
a crow, giving it a good air attack and the ability to fly, turning
it into a good scout.
 ____________

COST: 190 Gold, 20 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Hippogryph Taming(Researched at the Ancient of Wind).

	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Air melee unit, the Hippogryph is a very effective anti-air
unit, which can be also upgraded in order to pick up a regular
Archer in order to have a light ranged air unit. The hippogryph
should be an essential part of your defense if the enemy tries to
attack you with heavy air units such as Chimeras, Gripphons, Frost
Wyrms or even Wyverns.

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average

Archer-mounted Hippogryph, is like a flying Archer with more HP oO.
Not very effective and actually rather expensive for a light ranged
air unit, not to mention the monstruous 4 food expended on it.
 _________
|         |
| CHIMERA |
|_________|

COST: 390 Gold, 70 Lumber, 5 Food.
ABILITIES: Corrossive Breath (Researched at the Chimera Roost).
STATS: HP			: 900
	 Attack rating	: 45-55, 67-83 / 46-66, 68-100 / 47-77,

	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological

The heavy air unit of the Night Elves, the Chimera pales before
other air units due to its innefficacy to actually tear down
buildings with ease and the simplicity to take them out in air to
air combat. Coupled with the ridiculous high cost of the unit,
makes this a underpowered creature. Can't attack other air units.
 ________
|        |
| TREANT |
|________|

COST: N/A
ABILITIES: Nature's Blessing (Researched at the Tree of Ages).
STATS: HP			: 300

	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0 / 5
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Summoned, Biological.

Summoned by the Keeper of the Grove, the Treants are groups of
walking trees which, while not very damaging, are capable of
taking lots of damage, forming a wonderful meat barrier for
Archers and the Keeper himself. Treants are benefited from the
Ancients upgrades, receiving a beefy 5 armor from Nature's Blessing.

6.3.2.- Heroes:

a)DEMON HUNTER

Demon hunters are dark, shadowy warriors who are shunned by the
greater night elf society. They made a pact, long ago, to fight against
the forces of chaos using its own terrible powers against it. These
mysterious warriors ritually blind themselves so that they develop spectral
sight that enables them to see demons and undead with greater clarity.
They wield demonically charged warblades in battle and even call
upon demonic energies to augment their formidable combat skills.
Although they are counted as some of the mightiest warriors within
the night elves' society, the demon hunters are always maligned and
misunderstood for making their selfless pact with darkness.

NOTES: The Demon Hunter is one of the best (if not THE best) Heroes
in the game due to his abnormal power to dominate enemy heroes as
well as destroying legions of enemy units. The Demon hunter takes
a bit of practice to fully understand as it is easily killed in
lower levels by creeps, but in higher levels is almost unstoppable.
Only rivaled effectively by the Tauren Chieftain, the Mountain King,
the Death Knight and other Demon Hunters. Every other hero has a
bad time facing him.

HERO TYPE: Specialist Hero.

PROS: Fast and damaging. Monstruous ultimate. Difficult as hell
to take down. Mana Burn is an unfair spell. Useful passive ability.
CONS: Very easy to die when in low levels. Low damage dealt.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Keeper of the Grove.
BEST ARMY: Archers.

MANA BURN

The demon hunter may channel his demonic energies into a bolt of
negative energy that will burn away an enemy's mana reserves.

Mana Burn deals damage to an opponent's mana pool, and deals
equal damage to the victim. This spell definitely disables enemy
heroes and casters, and can mean the life in one on one battle.
Unfortunately, this spell is nowhere as effective as it once
was, and now burns much less mana.

LEVEL 1: burns 50 mana
LEVEL 2: burns 100 mana
LEVEL 3: burns 200 mana

IMMOLATION

The demon hunter's mastery of dark powers allows him to create a
fiery shell around his body that inflicts damage on nearby enemies.
This ability, however, takes tremendous concentration to use and
will quickly drain the demon hunter of power if used too often.

Useful for facing masses of enemies like skeletons, ghouls or
archers. Unfortunately, the damage done in negligible against
bigger targets. It's ussually best to go with Evasion as your
secondary ability unless you're certain you will face skeletons
or ghouls.

LEVEL 1: 10 damage per second
LEVEL 2: 15 damage per second
LEVEL 3: 20 damage per second

EVASION

With evasion, the demon hunter gains the advantage of being able
to dodge enemy strikes. Although this does not work against every
strike, it is nonetheless a powerful defensive tactic.

Evasion is a sorta effective ability to help your DH survive a
little longer, unfortunately you can't really count on it to make
your DH live longer. I prefer this one to Immolation just for
the mana saved.

LEVEL 1: 10% that opponent misses
LEVEL 2: 20% that opponent misses
LEVEL 3: 30% that opponent misses

METAMORPHOSIS

At the height of his powers, the demon hunter may change into
demon form for a limited amount of time. While in this form the
demon hunter not only possesses the ability to hurl fireballs, but
also enjoys increased regeneration and health.

Metamorphosis is a powerful tactic which turns the DH into a
one-man-army which can by himself turn around the tide of a battle.
Chaos damage makes him even effective in base assault and disruption
missions. One of the best ultimates.

ULTIMATE: Turns hero to splash-ranged attack, 500 bonus hit points;
	  Chaos Type of Attack, lasts 60 seconds.

b)PRIESTESS OF THE MOON

The fearless leaders of the Sentinel army, the priestesses of the
moon epitomize the power and grace of their race's ancient moon
goddess, Elune. The priestesses, equipped with silvery, glowing
armor, ride the fearless Frostsaber tigers of Winterspring into battle.
Charged with the safekeeping of the night elf lands and armed
with magical energy bows, the priestesses will stop at nothing to
rid their ancient land of evil.

NOTES: The Priestess of the Moon is an underpowered hero by herself
that turns almost all of the Sentinel units very powerful, as
well as having a few REALLY damaging abilities. While the PotM can
barely deal 44 damage on level 10, via level 3 True Shot Aura she
can already deal 59 damage, and with Searing Arrows that's 89 damage
per shot. Unfortunately, she's still rather fragile and difficult
to keep alive.Like all Female Night Elves, she can Shadowmeld at
night and become invisible as long as she doesn't move.

HERO TYPE: Leading Attack Hero.

PROS: Very high attack output. Wonderful scouting ability and aura.
Insanely powerful ultimate. Makes most of the sentinel units even
better at the sacrifice of her own individual power.
CONS: Very easy to kill and difficult to keep alive. Really bad stats.
Not worth by herself.
BEST PAIRED WITH : Keeper of the Grove.
BEST ARMY: Huntress.

SCOUT

The scout is an owl that may be sent to any area of the map for
observation purposes and to reveal invisible enemies. The owl will
only reveal for a limited amount of time.

Scout is an unvaluable ability for the sentinel as it is the only
movable way the Night Elves have to reveal invisible units, and in
the final level is ridiculously effective. Unfortunately, more often than
not is either this one vs the Searing Arrows, and is best used if
the Priestess isn't your main hero.

LEVEL 1: Summon owl scout for 100 mana.
LEVEL 2: Summon better owl scout for 75 mana.
LEVEL 3: Summon best owl scout for 50 mana.

SEARING ARROWS

Calling upon the powers of the Moon Goddess Elune to imbue her
arrows with searing magical energy, the priestess is able to fire
deadly volleys at any foe.

While some people neglect this ability since the damage is not really
too much, they seem to forget that the extra damage is calculated
after the arrow hits: THIS ABILITY IGNORES ARMOR, AND ARMOR TYPES.
Very effective if you can manage it okay and if she's your main hero.
(Autocast capable)

LEVEL 1: 10 bonus fire damage.
LEVEL 2: 20 bonus fire damage.
LEVEL 3: 30 bonus fire damage.

TRUESHOT AURA
The commanding presence of the priestess boosts the morale of her
warriors, enabling their attacks to strike with heightened accuracy
and power.

A must have for the Priestess as it boots bassically all of the Night
elves' units attack except the Hippogryph, the morphed Druid of the Talon
and both forms of the Druid of the Claw, as well as boosting the
Priestess herself. Powerful stuff.

LEVEL 1: 10% base ranged damage.
LEVEL 2: 20% base ranged damage.
LEVEL 3: 30% base ranged damage.

STARFALL

At the peak of her experience, the priestess may call down a
furious shower of falling stars that cause massive destruction amongst
enemy forces. This catastrophic power, given to the priestess by Elune
herself, achieves its full duration as long as the priestess stays in
the spell's vicinity.

Starfall is a incredibly destructive spell which can raze bases and
armies by itself, proven it doesn't gets interrupted. A few ways to
protect the starfall is via a wall of Dryads or Druids of the Claw, as
well as casting anti-magic shell on her (one way or another :P). It's
also pretty damn good looking.

ULTIMATE: Each wave deals 75 damage, lasts for 30 seconds.

c) KEEPER OF THE GROVE

The enchanted keepers are the favored sons of the demigod, Cenarius. Like
their lesser dryad sisters, the keepers appear to be half night elf and half
stag. They have enormous antlers and manes of leaves that flow down their
backs. Their right hands are disfigured and twisted like the gnarled
root-claws of the treants. Keepers possess many strange powers over nature
and the animals. Though they typically remain within the sacred Moon Glades
of Mount Hyjal, the keepers always heed the call to arms when the lands of
Kalimdor are threatened.

NOTES: The Keeper of the Grove is best left a secondary hero as he is
quite a subpar hero due to his pretty bad stats and his supportive
spells, but as a secondary hero he can seriously provide help with
the massive treant meat shield as well as interrupting spells and
incapaciting units.

HERO TYPE: Support hero.

PROS: The Treant meat shield is a very effective strategy. Tranquility
can heal big armies in one go between battles. Only Night elven
hero that can interrupt spells.
CONS: Weak fighter. Easy to kill. Generally not very useful if the
army is not concentrated around him.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Demon Hunter.
BEST ARMY: Huntress.

ENTANGLING ROOTS
The sons of Cenarius are favored with the ability to cause roots to erupt
from the ground and entrap enemy forces. These roots not only keep the enemy
immobile, but also inflict damage.

Powerful stuff. The Entangling root completely immobilizes the target,
interrupts spells, and makes the target unable to fight back. Very scary
on level 3, and very useful in early base harrassment.

LEVEL 1: 15 damage per second for 15 seconds.
LEVEL 2: 15 damage per second for 30 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 15 damage per second for 45 seconds.

FORCE OF NATURE
This ability allows the keeper to call forth allies from the surrounding
forest. These stout treants will do as the keeper wills until the magic that
animates them expires and the trees return once more to the earth.

Force of Nature was a popular choice when the game first came out, but
now that the KotG is no more the first hero choice, this spell has been
left behind. Don't understimate it, you can easily cast and keep at least
12 treants provided you have the necesary trees to do so, making a huge
meat shield and a mass of resistant units.

LEVEL 1: Raises 2 treants of 300 hit points, 17-19 damage,
         0 armor for 75 seconds.
LEVEL 2: Raises 3 treants of 300 hit points, 17-19 damage,
         0 armor for 75 seconds.
LEVEL 3: Raises 4 treants of 300 hit points, 17-19 damage,
         0 armor for 75 seconds.

THORNS AURA

While this aura is active, any forces that engage the keeper or his allies
in hand to hand combat will be damaged by a druidic flurry of razor sharp
thorns and brambles.

If you are using heavily FoN, you might want to top this one as it's
useful with it. Any other time makes this ability partially worthless and
useless, as the damage done is negligble even in high levels.

LEVEL 1: Deals 10% damage to melee enemy attackers.
LEVEL 2: Deals 20% damage to melee enemy attackers.
LEVEL 3: Deals 30 damage to melee enemy attackers.

TRANQUILITY

In a demonstration of his ultimate communion with nature, the keeper may
call down a mighty shower of rain that will restore health to all friendly
forces within its range for its entire duration. The keeper is also healed
by the majestic powers of nature that are unleashed.

If you have the time, this ability rules. But, most likely, you won't
have it and is difficult to maintain. Powerful effect, not useful ability
in my opinion.

ULTIMATE: heals 20 hits points/second for 30 seconds.

GOLD		: 170
LUMBER	: 40
HP		: 750
ARMOR		: 2

The Moon Well adds food, and acts as a static healing station where you
can heal your units and replenish their MP. It's a very useful building
for replenishing your Heroes life when he's gone creeping early in the
game. Make sure you keep the ability as autocast.

The Ancient Protector is your static defense. It has a long sight range,
and is a good defense for difficult times as it doesn't requires
any food and can fend off units until help arrives. Like all Ancients,
this building can uproot and function like a regular melee unit. It
will also attack nearby enemies.

| ALTAR OF ELDERS |

GOLD		: 300
LUMBER	: 100
HP		: 900
ARMOR		: 5

The Altar of Elders allows you to call forth the mighty heroes to aid
you in battle, as well as reviving them. The first hero only
requires five food, but subsequent heroes will require 500 gold and
100 lumber as well as the food to come. The first hero can be summoned
right away, while the second and third requires a tier upgrade.

The cost of reviving a hero is despicted in this quick table:

Level 1 : 200 gold, 5 population space.
Level 2 : 250 gold, 5 population space.
Level 3 : 300 gold, 5 population space.
Level 4 : 350 gold, 5 population space.
Level 5 : 400 gold, 5 population space.
Level 6 : 450 gold, 5 population space.
Level 7 : 500 gold, 5 population space.
Level 8 : 550 gold, 5 population space.
Level 9 : 600 gold, 5 population space.
Level 10: 650 gold, 5 population space.

6.3.4.- General Strategies.

The Night Elves strategies of hit and run tactics are one of the
most effective in the game since their units are definitely VERY
powerful, which wasn't what it seemed at first since they are particulary
weak stats wise.

Massing either of these units:

- Archers.
- Dryads.
- Huntress.
- Druids of the Talon (In earlier versions actually)

Is a viable yet risky strategy which might yield enough results in
quick games. Unfortunately, against Undead (arguably the best race in
the game) Dryads are fairly useless and Archers and Druids work better
together than alone. Choose your strategy wisely, and you should win.

Huntress are arguably again the best unit in the game in masses, because,
like the Mutalisks, in great numbers the damage increases GREATLY.
Furthermore, they are not melee units, earning free and important strikes
on melee units such as Footmen or Grunts.

Strategic-wise, however, while the four units already mentioned are
wonderful, the others are quite subpar. In adition to having the
worst siege engine, they have the worst air units, and the most difficult
to use heavy melee unit (which, even worse, can't match the Abominations
or the Tauren in open combat and is even vulnerable to Mana Burn).

VS HUMANS

Perhaps the Night Elves best match, the humans are ussually
overwhelmed by the might of the Huntress in heavy combat and Dryads
countering their wonderful spellcasters.

The best way to go is the Huntresses - Dryads combo backed up with a
Keeper of the Grove if you can afford the lack of a heavy hitter
in order to apply a quick harrasment to their workers. The humans
might try to rush on you via Footmen and an Archmage. You might
be faster, but you can also be slower in your goal to stop their
production long enough to provide a good army of Huntresses.

The other way is to apply the same combo but going with the Demon
Hunter, but is perhaps a much more defensive way.

If the enemy goes Mass Gryphons, you will have to sacrifice
power for defense and go with Archers. Gryphons are dangerous things
to face later in the game, and Ancient Protectors won't help much.

VS ORCS

Much like the Humans, you can ussually go with Huntresses - Dryads,
but the Archer - Druids of the Talon (Or Dryads - Druids) is
perhaps better and safer. Bloodlust can be abolished or Cycloned
away, as well as undermining their forces via Cyclone is easy as
hell, since they can't Purge it away.

Unfortunately, that ends with your advantages. The Orcs can severely
damage you via Bloodlust, and the Tauren Chieftain and the Far
Seer are a pain in the ass to your weak units HP-wise.

Keep going with Archers and Druids and you will have the upper
hand early in the game. With a Demon Hunter, hopefully, that will
be enough.

VS UNDEAD

The Undead are the worst match up for the Night Elves thanks to
the powerful Crypt Fiend - Death Knight - Lich combo, which spells
doom to all of your weaker units. With the Death Knight's Unlimited
Healing, the Crypt Fiends can take out your units one by one early
in the game.

GO with the DEMON HUNTER. I Can't stress it enough. Follow him
with a Keeper of the Grove.

Fortunately, not all is lost. To start with, take the Death Knight OUT.
Cyclone him. Kill him. Stun Him. Burn him. Either way, the Death
Knight is the Lichpin which keeps the whole strategy together. Second,
try to use as many Druids of the Talon as possible along with Archers.
Cyclone the things away and take out the remaining. You might want to
try with the Huntresses - Druids of the Talon, but is fairly difficult
to keep up with the longer living (and heavier damaging) Crypt Fiends
production rate.

It's a waste to use flying units, but in the rare case that they
go with the Dreadlord - Abomination combo, then by all means use
Mass Archers early then blow them up with Chimerae.

VS NIGHT ELVES

Based largely on a personal preferrance, the NE VS NE match up more
or less in ussually won by the one person who can manage their
Demon Hunter better. I would go with Huntresses and Demon Hunter
for a ridiculously quick rush, unfortunately, this isn't a sure
shot, and might not work for everyone.

I suggest avoiding Dryads or Archers unless you expect a massive
Druid of the Talon attack.

Finally, you might want to invest on a Priestess of the Moon as
a secondary hero, if only for the extra damage and the scouting
ability.

6.4.- Undead.

The Undead Scourge is a well-balanced faction that can field
enduring ground forces and powerful air units. Their spellcasters
possess a variety of powerful magics, including the dreaded
ability to raise fallen allies and foes alike into an army of
Walking dead. In this way, the Undead can field armies more
numerous than any other race in Warcraft III. (From the
manual)

The Undead are without a single doubt the weirdest race of
the bunch. With their roots in Starcraft's Protoss and Zerg, the
Undead bases must be build within the corrupt borders of the Blight,
while their buildings are merely summoned in place by Acolytes,
letting the dark powers do the job while the Acolyte cares other
matters. The Undead units are certainly the most powerful of the game
but are also much more difficult and less efective than others.
Abominations, Necromancers and Banshess, ridiculously powerful
units, are hellish difficult to manage and keep in check.

Furthermore, they can only regenerate on blight, but their
regeneration rates are twice as fast as humans or orcs.

High points include powerful units, most powerful flying unit,
relative good cost, and great heroes. Quick and steady in
open combat, and monstruous spells.

Low point include low HP overall, unbalanced flying units,
difficult to use, lots of micromanagement, and definitely hard
to master heroes.

6.4.1.- Units.
 _________
|         |
| ACOLYTE |
|_________|

COST: 90 Gold, 1 Food.
ABILITIES: Unsummon.
COST:
ABILITIES:
STATS: HP			: 220
	 Attack rating	: 9-10
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Very slow
	 Clasification	: Undead


The Acolytes are your basic workers which build, repair (or Renew),
and gather gold for your army. For a change, these units,
instead of gathering the gold and bringing them back, they
just keep on an Haunted Gold Mine, taking out the
resource without having to travel back. Unfortunately, they
cannot harvest gold. They can also Unsummon buildings, which
destroys the target (of your property) building, and gives you
half the price of the building back.
 _______
|       |
| GHOUL |
|_______|

COST: 140 Gold, 2 Food.
ABILITIES: Canibalize (researched at the Crypt), Ghoul Frenzy
(Researched at the Crypt).
STATS: HP			: 330
	 Attack rating	: 12-14 / 13-16 / 14-18 / 15-20
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Undead

The Ghouls are your basic fighting units, and a very good one at that.
It's also the undead's lumber harvesters, and is also the best harvester
out of all races, unfortunately is also the most expensive :P. The ghouls
are rather fragile, but are good expendable troops defensive-wise, and
effective rushers. They can Canibalize, which allows them to regain
health eating nearby corpses, and Ghoul Frenzy, which doubles their
attack and movement speed.
 _____________
|             |
| CRYPT FIEND |
|_____________|

COST: 250 gold, 40 lumber, 3 food.
ABILITIES: Web (Researched at the Crypt)
STATS: HP			: 550
	 Attack rating	: 28-33 / 29-39 / 30-45 / 31-51
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Undead

The Crypt Fiends are powerful ranged creatures which work wonders
teaming with a Death Knight in order to improve their speed and
regain their monstruous HP rating. While they cannot attack air
units, they can cast a web on them in order to bring them to
the ground and attack them. While webbed, they can't move or fly.
Without a Death Knight, they are rather easy to kill, though.
 __________
|          |
| GARGOYLE |
|__________|

COST: 220 gold, 30 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Stone Form (researched at the Crypt)
STATS: HP			: 400
	 Attack rating	: 44-54, 21-24 / 45-65, 22-28 / 46-76, 23-32
				  / 47-87, 24-46
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing , Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 3 / 5 / 7 / 9
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average / Fast
	 Clasification	: Undead

While a lousy air-to-ground unit, these are the kings of air-to-air
combat. Their 400 HP are however miserable and are easy to kill. They also
have the Stone Form ability, which turns them into stone, granting
them enhanced HP regeneration (even not in blight), 15 extra normal
armor, and magic immunity at the price of not moving for awhile.
Useful for healing between massive air battles.
 ____________
|            |
| MEAT WAGON |
|____________|

COST: 270 gold, 65 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: Disease Cloud (Researched at the Slaughter House).
STATS: HP			: 380
	 Attack rating	: 71-88 / 72-106 / 73-124 / 74-142
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Siege
	 Armor		: 2
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Very Slow
	 Clasification	: Mechanical

The Meat Wagon is the siege engine of the Undead (And a gross
one at that). While the damage is regular for a siege engine,
the two abilities might make it worth it: One, the ability to
carry corpses in order to be either reanimated by the Death Knight
or raised by Necromancers, and the other is the Disease Cloud,
which deals 1 hit per second for around 2 minutes to the units
caught in the area of effect of the hit.
 _____________
|             |
| ABOMINATION |
|_____________|

COST: 280 gold, 70 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: Disease Cloud (Researched at the Slaughter House),
Canibalize (Researched at the Crypt).
STATS: HP			: 1080
	 Attack rating	: 32-39 / 34-46 / 35-56 / 36-60
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Undead

One of the heaviest units in the game, the Abomination is a heavy
melee unit which deals and receives a helluva lot of damage. The
Disease Cloud is a good secondary skill for them since their
size makes them reach a lot of enemy units around them. Still,
their size and food requeriments are huge and a problem. As of
version 1.10, they can also canibalize corpses.
 _____________
|             |
| NECROMANCER |
|_____________|

COST: 170 gold, 20 gold, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Necromancer adept training (Researched at the Temple
of the Damned), Necromancer Master Training (Researched at the
Temple of the Damned).
STATS: HP			: 305
	 Attack rating	: 8-9
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Undead

The Necromancer is your basic spellcaster, which has three powerful
spells. Raise Dead raises two skeletons out of a nearby corpse(Capable
in autocast). Unholy Frenzy is a mighty spells which boosts the attack
rate of an allied unit at the cost of some HP per second, best used
with Abominations and high HP units. Finally Cripple is a very damaging
spell which slows down a victim and reduces their attack damage to
a crawl.
 _________
|         |
| BANSHEE |
|_________|

COST: 180 gold, 30 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Banshee adept training (Researched at the Temple
of the Damned), Banshee Master Training (Researched at the
Temple of the Damned).
STATS: HP			: 290
	 Attack rating	: 9-13
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Undead

Your secondary spellcaster. The Banshee has three useful spells:
Curse makes enemies miss around 25% of their attacks, Anti-Magic
spell makes a target unit impervious to magic, while Possession
allows you to sacrifice your Banshee in order to take control of
an enemy unit. If you capture a worker, you can even build another
completely new race base!
 ____________
|            |
| FROST WYRM |
|____________|

COST: 450 gold, 120 lumber, 7 food.
ABILITIES: Frost Breath
STATS: HP			: 1100
	 Attack rating	: 85-105 / 86-116 / 87-127 / 88-138
	 Attack Type	: Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Very Slow
	 Clasification	: Undead

Well, as you can see, the Frost Wyrms are the most damaging creatures
in the game. Unfortunately the price to pay is huge, and furthermore,
these creatures are mighty but slow and easy to defeat in quick combat,
not to mention vulnerable to more or less all of the harmful spells
in the game. Their special ability allows them to disable buildings for
5 seconds, effectively stopping all activity within them.
 _______
|       |
| SHADE |
|_______|

COST: 1 food.
ABILITIES: None.
STATS: HP			: 125
	 Attack rating	: N/A
	 Attack Type	: N/A
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: N/A
	 Clasification	: Undead

The Shade is an invisible unit which is created by sacrificing an
Acolyte at the Sacrificial Pit. It's armed only with True Sight,
which allows it to see invisible units.

COST: N/A
ABILITIES: Skeletal Longevity (Researched at the Temple of the Damned)

	 Attack Type	: Normal
	 Armor		: 1 / 3 / 5 / 7
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Undead, Summoned

Created by the Necromancer with the Raise Dead spell, two Skeleton
Warriors come from each corpse. Skeleton Warriors are not really
very resistant, but in masses they are quite damaging. Their upgrade
allows them to stay alive for an extra 15 seconds, making them 45
seconds-attack-packs.
 __________
|          |
| INFERNAL |

	 Attack Type	: Chaos
	 Armor		: 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast

The Infernal is summoned by (mainly) the Dreadlord with his
Inferno spell. The Infernals not only has impressive stats, it
also has spell immunity and permanent level 1 immolation.

*BURNING LEGION UNIT*

6.4.2.- Heroes.

a)LICH

While on Draenor, Ner'zhul commanded a number of orcish warlocks and
spell-wielding death knights. Yet, when Kil'jaeden and the Legion captured
these sorcerers after that world's destruction, they were transformed into
twisted, spectral aberrations of their former selves. These newly born
liches possessed tremendous magical powers, yet their immortal, undead
bodies were bound to the iron will of Ner'zhul. As payment for their undying
loyalty to Ner'zhul, the Lich King granted them control over the furious
elements of Northrend. Now, the liches wield frost magic along with their
own considerable necromantic spells.

NOTES: The lich is a mighty powerful spellcaster hero which can certainly
trash legions of small units single-handledly with one of the best spells
in the game, Frost Nova. Thanks to its regular spells, he can keep refilling
his MP and cast Frost Nova non-stop, and protecting itself and his armies
with Frost Armor. Easy to kill and difficult to use, though.

HERO TYPE: Supporting Hero.

PROS: Best hero-spell in the game, can refill his own MP pool, lots of
MP to waste, quick to move, and wonderful hero-killing abilities.
CONS: Easy to kill. Hellish difficult to use as a secondary hero, where,
ironically, he shines the most. Weak in open combat. Vulnerable to
direct engagement.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Death Knight.
BEST ARMY: Ghouls.

FROST NOVA

Liches can call upon the freezing energies of Northrend to do their
bidding. Using a single enemy as the focal point for their dire spell,
liches can cause an explosion of frost to burst from the targeted creature
that will damage everything around it. Creatures harmed in this way
have trouble moving, incapacitated by the freezing ice that stiffens their
joints.

Frost Nova is a incredible effective spell which can damage and slow down
a large radious of enemies to a crawl, and deals a lot of damage for
the MP invested. Recommended to cast right in the middle of the battle
in order to provide the maximun effect out of the slow stat.

LEVEL 1: 100 target damage, 50 nova damage.
LEVEL 2: 100 target damage, 100 nova damage.
LEVEL 3: 100 target damage, 150 nova damage.

FROST ARMOR

An allied creature can be encased in a protective armor of ice. Creatures
attacking the Frost Armor have difficulty moving due to the jolt of freezing
cold that moves through their bodies.

Frost Armor is an auto-cast capable spell which can allow mainly the Lich
to defend itself when under direct combat, and in level 3 it's a very
effective spell to help Crypt Fiends or Abominations.

LEVEL 1: Adds 3 armor.
LEVEL 2: Adds 5 armor.
LEVEL 3: Adds 7 armor.

DARK RITUAL

By destroying one of his own minions, the Lich is able to absorb the
energies of his lesser comrade, replenishing his dark magical powers. The
lich can absorb the energies of his undead army by casting a Dark Ritual on
them. Though this destroys the lich's lesser comrades, it releases their
energies back into the lich and replenishes the Lich's power.

Definitely misunderstood and difficult to use, the Dark Ritual allows the
Lich to keep casting the powerful Frost Nova at the sacrifice of a
friendly unit. This spell is critical in order to achieve the most out
of your Lich, recommended to use and abuse.

LEVEL 1: 33% of hit points to mana.
LEVEL 2: 66% of hit points to mana.
LEVEL 3: 100% of hit points to mana.

DEATH AND DECAY

The swirling negative energies known as the Death And Decay spell are
favored by the liches for their power to decompose, rot and destroy
everything within them. Not even the strongest warriors or the most durable
structures can stand the full effects of Death And Decay.

Death And Decay can kill anything caught in the area of effect in 25
seconds, which will prove to be quite dangerous when attacking bases, where
it can raze whatever its aimed at, provided you can protect the lich for
that time. Powerful stuff.

ULTIMATE: Damages 4% of base hit points per second + also destroys trees

b)DEATH KNIGHT

Death knights were once heroic, virtuous defenders of humanity.
However, they were corrupted by the subtle machinations of the
Lich King and lured to his dark standard. These former heroes were
given untold power and the promise of immortality in exchange for
their loyalties. Although they retained their humanity, their twisted
souls were bound to the Lich King's will for all time. Bestowed with
black, vampiric runeblades and shadowy steeds, death knights
now serve as the Scourge's mightiest generals.

NOTES: The Death Knight is a great hero to use since he has what
could be the best aura in the game, and rolls along with any ally,
be it hero or regular unit. He's capable in hand-to-hand combat, but
he is sort of slow to attack, and, while resistant, he's better off
in the back lines for the first levels.

HERO TYPE: Leading Attack Hero.

PROS: Good stats. Can heal everything (Including himself), and is
very damaging. Powerful ultimate and the best aura in the game.
CONS: Slow attack rate. Not a single support spell. His ultimate
can still be dispelled.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Lich or Dreadlord.
BEST ARMY: Crypt Fiends.

DEATH COIL

Death knights can call upon the forces of darkness at will, causing
bolts of death to issue from their hands. While doing considerable damage
to the death knights' enemies, the Death Coil also heals their undead
brethren.

Death Coil is more or less the same as Holy Light: Heals undead, and
damages regular units. Unfortunately, since the Death Knight is also
much more powerful than the Paladin, this spell has a heavy minus:
the coil has to travel all the way from the Death Knight sword to
the target. While, is less than a second, many times you will see
the target die before the spells resolves.

LEVEL 1: Heal 200, deals 100 damage to the living.
LEVEL 2: Heal 400, deals 200 damage to the living.
LEVEL 3: Heal 600, deals 300 damage to the living.

DEATH PACT

Through the sacrifice of his followers, a death knight can absorb
their unholy energies and convert them into health for himself.

Death Pact is another version of Dark Ritual, only slightly less
useful since the Death Knight himself is not very likely to be
the first target in the battlefield, and anyway his Aura does
half the job.

LEVEL 1: 100% conversion of hit points to death knight.
LEVEL 2: 200% conversion of hit points to death knight.
LEVEL 3: 300% conversion of hit points to death knight.

UNHOLY AURA

All death knights can learn to exude a dark, raging battle aura that
causes allied creatures around them to move and regenerate life more
quickly.

Arguably the best Aura in the game, It allows Undead to regain health
out of blight, and works wonders with Crypt Fiends and Abominations,
not to mention making the Death Knight hellish fast and resistant.

LEVEL 1: +10% movement speed, +50% life regeneration.
LEVEL 2: +20% movement speed, +100% life regeneration.
LEVEL 3: +30% movement speed, +150% life regeneration.

ANIMATE DEAD

Arguably the death knights' most horrific power is their ability to
raise recently slain corpses into an army of the undead, no matter
what their allegiance in life may have been. Though they are brought back
for a time, the death knights' recalled warriors will eventually fall, never
to be raised again.

Animate Dead raises six units out of the most powerful units available
around (in terms of level, for example knights are level 6 i think),
and raises them with a twist: They are invulnerable to damage. They can
still be dispelled, but this spell is invaluable and fun to use in
the middle of a heated battle.

ULTIMATE: Raises 6 dead units in an area to fight for the death knight for
          120 seconds.

c)DREADLORD

Dreadlords are incredibly powerful demons who wield the powers
of darkness and mental domination. These cunning, malefic beings
once served as the demon Kil'jaeden's most trusted lieutenants. Yet,
at Kil'jaeden's request, the vampiric Dreadlords were sent to watch
over the Lich King, Ner'zhul, and ensure that he carried out his orders
to sow chaos in the mortal world. Though Dreadlords have been
known to revel in the gore of single combat, they generally prefer to
manipulate and beguile their enemies from the shadows.

NOTES: The Dreadlords are good heroes which can take awhile to get
used to. While his abilities are certainly good, his own stats and
the learning curve for this hero might frustrate some players,
as the hero at the end can't compare to the effectiveness of the
Death Knight. A very good hero if you have the patience to use him.

HERO TYPE: Specialist Hero.

PROS: Very good aura and spells in general. Can incapacitate
heroes and units. Scary Ultimate. Average stats.
CONS: Way too hard to use. Very counterable. Easy to take down
in combat.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Death Knight.
BEST ARMY: Abominations and Ghouls.

CARRION SWARM

Dreadlords control the creatures of the night, and some of them have
even mastered the ability to call swarms of bats and insects to strike
at their unsuspecting enemies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of 1.10, Carrion Swarm no longer hits Witch Doctor's
Wards, so be careful.
Carrion Swarm is an useful attacking spell which can deal good damage to
a group of enemies at the start of the battle. However, is not very
damaging, and is best to use the other abilities.

LEVEL 1: 75 damage per unit, maximum 300 damage.
LEVEL 2: 125 damage per unit, maximum 600 damage.
LEVEL 3: 200 damage per unit, maximum 1000 damage.

SLEEP

Through the mastery of subversion and hypnosis, Dreadlords have learned
to put their enemies into a sudden, trance-like sleep. Though this
mystical sleep will wear off in time, a sharp jab from either a friend or
an enemy will always awaken the hapless sleeper.

A spell with unlimited uses, Sleep turns an unit totally immobile for
a few seconds or until someone hits it. Useful for neutralizing key
enemy units and to cut down enemy forces.

LEVEL 1: 20 seconds sleep for 100 mana.
LEVEL 2: 40 seconds sleep for 75 mana.
LEVEL 3: 60 seconds sleep for 50 mana.

VAMPIRIC AURA

Those who are fortunate enough to have a powerful Dreadlord as an
ally can gain the benefits of his Vampiric Aura. This dark, unholy aura
causes the Dreadlord's allies to actually gain life by spilling their
enemies' blood.

This Aura allows melee units to gain life out of attacking enemy units.
This works wonders with Ghoul Frenzied Ghouls and with Abominations,
but otherwise is useless with other units (namely the Crypt Fiends,
perhaps the most important undead unit).

LEVEL 1: +15% of attack damage.
LEVEL 2: +30% of attack damage.
LEVEL 3: +45% of attack damage.

INFERNO

The Dreadlord marks the pinnacle of his dark powers with the devastating
ability to summon a fiery infernal. At his call, the infernal will streak
down from the sky, stunning and wounding nearby enemy forces when it crashes
to the earth. The infernal, engulfed in searing flame, will then rise to do
the dreadlord's bidding.

Well, read the frigging description. This allows the Dreadlord to summon
one of the most powerful units in the game, the Infernal. Good to use
in conjunction with Carrion swarm to deal the most damage out of them
both.

ULTIMATE:Calls an Infernal down from the sky, dealing 50 damage and stunning
         enemy land units for 4 seconds. Infernal has 49-60 damage, Chaos
         type of attack, melee, fast attack speed, Heavy armor, Amount 6;
         fast move speed, spell immunity, 1500 hit points,
         burns nearby units for 10 points/second (Immolation), lasts 180
	   seconds.

6.4.4.- General Strategies.

The Undead are definitely a certainly great race right now
thanks greatly to Tillerman and his Crypt Fiend - Death Knight
combo which now is a widely used strategy by players of all kinds
of ability levels, which will oportunely yield at some point an
strong counter. However, such counter...

Hasn't yet surfaced. Ahem.

While once the Crypt Fiends were shunned for their slowness,
eventually their powerful attacks and resistance has shown as
perhaps their most powerful unit.

Undead also have an easy time expanding thanks to their ability
to mine with a single headquarters no matter the distance, but their
lack of health regenaration "on-the-run" makes the Death Knight's
Aura almost a necesity.

The Undead can approach different kinds of strategy for the
creative player if you are willing to try each of their creatures,
but as the array of Undead Strategy has come a long way since
the release of the game, many of them might already have an strong
counter. As you can see, the Undead are a race for the extreme.

VS HUMANS

Humans mass Footman - Sorceress - Priest combo led by an Archmage
is a very tough strategy to overcome which might actually pummel
you early in the game if the human player is willing to give up
the all-important levels for the hero. Is very important to start
whatever strategy you're going for quick as lightning in order
to have a reliable defense once the first Footman and the Archmage
reach the town. If you can actually survive the rush, the rest of
the game will be winnable, but difficult.

Later in the game, Crypt Fiends and Banshees will prove unvaluable
to stop the massive casters from wrecking havoc in your lines.
Abominations and Gargoyles will also be useful to get thru them
once the Crypt Fiends have dealt the initial strike.

One thing to keep in mind is to neutralize the Strenght Hero
they are carrying, be it the Paladin or the Mountain King. Both
of them are potentially dangerous to your armies, and most
importantly to your Death Knight or Lich.

VS ORCS

Orcs differ from humans since their heroes can actually take the
main role in the battlefield with wonderful results. Out of them,
depending on your own strategy, are differently hazardous.

If you're going heavy Crypt Fiends, the Blade Master is your main
concern.

If you're going heavy Ghouls, the Chieftain will certainly be a
thorn (or horn) in your side.

If you're going heavy Necromancers, the Far Seer will be the bulkiest
stone to hop.

The orcs heavy units will be your main problem, and you need to
take action fast. Creeping early thanks to your faster and cheaper
units can be useful to get a few levels before them, and rushing
early with Ghouls is an effective strategy, as long as they are not
using heavy Watch Towers.

Defensive wise, the undead have little to stop a full-out orcish
attack, so is better to retain initiative.

VS UNDEAD

The UD VS UD is a difficult battle where items can be heavily the
path to victory.

Crypt Fiends + Gargoyles are ussually the best approach led
by a Death Knight and a Dreadlord. Unfortunately, the Death Coil
is useless as an offensive weapon in this match up and hero kills
will be rare and hard to achieve, so going for the closest target
of opportunity is the best way to go. Reduce their forces without
technically attacking their heroes will be a good step towards
the win.

The Frost Wyrms will be very likely not seen here since the anti-air
capabilities of the Undead is easily the best out there. On the
other hand, Abominations could be a nasty surprise if you can manage
to have them alive out of reach of Crypt Fiends and Gargoyles.
Banshees will also be powerful as hell as the Undead have little
to no ways to dispell debuffs.

VS NIGHT ELVES

Once again, Crypt Fiends, Death Knights and Liches are the most
effective way to block the way for the thousand archers or the
mass Huntress. Both of these common strategies are easily stoppped
by the Crypt Fiends backed up by a Death Knight, and Druids of
the Talon can be neutralized (at least temporaly) by the Lich.

After the first ten minutes, the Druids of the Talons are your
main concern. Cyclone can't be dispelled by any way, and is quite
the game winner. THere isn't a sure fire way to keep them at bay.
Furthermore, the Demon Hunter can certainly behind lines disable your
Death Knight. The Lich should be the most important unit holding them
back with Frost Nova, and the Banshees will do the job of protecting
units with Anti-Magic shield.

Frost Wyrms will be a creative addition to your army later in the
game in order to hit their base with some... distraction as a back
up :).

6.5.- High Elven Units

NOTE: Only available on the the mission THE FALL OF SILVERMOON of
the undead campaign by possessing a High Elf Worker. The buildings
are just model swaps of the parallel human buildings, thus rendering
useless (and a lot of work for me) a description, but the units
are slightly different. Same tactics apply for the units, still,
as Swordsman are like Footman, Archers like.. uh... Night Elf's archers.
The Dragon Hawks, however are the only totally new unit.
That said, the High Elven farms come in like 6 different models,
each adding anywhere from 5 to 20 food.

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 1
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Very powerful anti-air unit with Ensnare. Very cheap as well. Used
in the Frozen throne, though it is vastly different.


6.6.- Burning Legion Units.

NOTE: Burning Legion Units can be found (and summoned) as creeps and
summoned via items. They don't have any upgrades.

 ____________
|            |
| DOOM GUARD |
|____________|

COST: Summoned.
ABILITIES: Dispel Magic, Warstomp, Cripple, Rain of Fire.
STATS: HP			: 1350
	 Attack rating	: 41-48
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Normal
	 Armor		: 3
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Ridiculously powerful attack and support unit, sporting some of
the best spells in the game with a hefty ammount of HP and armor, the
Doom Guard is simply the best unit in the game. Too bad you can't train
them or summon them in bigger number, but of course... 12 Doom Guard
would simply overwhelm anything.

 __________
|          |
| FELHOUND |
|__________|

COST: Summoned.
ABILITIES: Mana Burn.
STATS: HP			: 750
	 Attack rating	: 24-27
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 3
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Very fast and annoying, the Felhound can disable enemy casters and head
on to them with ease. Weak against most other units unless in swarms.

 __________
|          |
| INFERNAL |
|__________|

COST: Summoned Unit.
ABILITIES: N/A
STATS: HP			: 1500
	 Attack rating	: 46-60
	 Attack Type	: Chaos
	 Armor		: 6
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Fast
	 Clasification	: Summoned

The Infernal is summoned by (mainly) the Dreadlord with his
Inferno spell. The Infernals not only has impressive stats, it
also has spell immunity and permanent level 1 immolation.

6.7.- Miscelleaneous Units.

NOTE: These units can't be built by the player by any normal means. They
don't have any upgrades, and are only easter eggs. Since they can't be
used, I simply added the stats. The Only exception is the Hydralisk.
As for the Orc Warlock, I simply found no other place to put him. Give
me a handle, and I will use it.
 _____________
|             |
| ORC WARLOCK |
|_____________|

COST: 215 Gold, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Warlock Adept Training (Researched at the
	     Spirit Lodge), Warlock Master Training (Researched at the
 	     Spirit Lodge)
       STATS: HP			: 250
	 Attack rating	: 16-20
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Chaos (wtf)
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Medium
	 Attack Speed	: Medium
	 Clasification	: Biological

* The Orc Warlock is only used on the "Black Rock and roll, Too!"
(Episode 3, Mission six)
mission in the campaign. Not sure about where are the abilities
researched, though. Note that in this mission, the Black Rock clan
gets to build Dragon Roosts as well, making it notably similar to
the Orcs in the second game. Firebolt, Unholy Frenzy and Cripple
are his spells.

NOTES: Hireable from the Goblin Laboratory.

 __________

	 Attack rating	: N/A
	 Attack Type	: N/A

	 Armor Type		: Heavy

Used as air transports. Very useful if used right.

 _________
|         |
| SAPPERS |
|_________|

COST: 250 gold, 100 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Kaboom!
STATS: HP			: 100
	 Attack rating	: 500
	 Attack Type	: Siege
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: N/A
	 Clasification	: Suicidal

These are the same old Sappers: Send 'em to a building, and
watch 500 HP gone in one sweep. The Sappers are very effective,
but are very fragile as well, and should be used with caution.
Effctive against clusters of enemies as well.

NOTE: Sappers can't be loaded in Zeppelins.

 __________
|          |
| SHREDDER |
|__________|

COST: 440 gold, 100 lumber, 4 food.
ABILITIES: N/A
STATS: HP			: 600
	 Attack rating	: 34-61
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 3
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Mechanical

The Shredder is an effective fighter but quite costly for its
power, though it's principal use is to collect wood: They can
cut trees like it's going out of style. Coupled with
the fact they bring 100 lumber per trip, and you have
Greenpeace's enemy numero uno.

6.9.- Non-playable heroes.

There are three non-playable heroes: The Pit Lord and the Elven Ranger, and the
Warlock. The Elven Ranger is almost the same as the Priestess of the Moon,
but the Pit Lord is really a buff character. And, for
the "Flavor Text", the funny sounding text relating the histories, look
for the hero which has the same ability. If no other hero has the spell,
then the spell simply doesn't have any Flavor Text.
I did not include Cenarious and Chaos Grom because they are bassically
a buffed up Keepper of the Grove and a chaos-damage-sporting Blademaster.
Tichondrious was also left behind. Any "Special abilities" will be noted
on its own section.

6.9.1.- Elven Ranger.


NOTES: The Ranger is almost a carbon copy of the Priestess of the Moon
(Though in my opinion a lot cooler looking), with only one different
ability. The only Ranger in the game is Sylvanas Windrunner herself.
(That said, there is another one in The Frozen Throne)
Originally a Human Hero.

HERO TYPE: Support Hero.

PROS: Same as the Priestess of the Moon, though with a very annoying
ability instead of that ridiculous damage output- potentially much
more disrupting than any other hero.
CONS: Even weaker than the Priestess of the Moon.
BEST PAIRED WITH: N/A.
BEST ARMY: Ranger units.

NOTE: Exact same stats of the Priestess of the Moon: If I had knew
that before, i wouldn't have gone through the trouble of editing a
whole damn map to try her.

SCOUT

Scout is an unvaluable ability for the Ranger as it is the only
movable way the High Elves have to reveal invisible units, and in
the final level is ridiculously effective. Unfortunately, more often than
not is either this one vs the Ice Arrows, and is best used if
the Ranger isn't your main hero.

LEVEL 1: Summon owl scout for 100 mana.
LEVEL 2: Summon better owl scout for 75 mana.
LEVEL 3: Summon best owl scout for 50 mana.

ICE ARROWS

The Ranger's only unique ability (Though the Naga Sea Witch in The Frozen
Throne has it), Ice Arrows is an absurdly disruptive ability which slows
down the target's speed and attack rate with each shot. Pretty cool ability,
and a shame we never get to use it in the campaign.
(Autocast capable)

LEVEL 1: Slows down the target movement speed and attack speed by 30%.
LEVEL 2: Slows down the target movement speed and attack speed by 50%.
LEVEL 3: Slows down the target movement speed and attack speed by 70%.

NOTE: Perhaps this is the reason this hero was removed. This ability might
not sound that powerful in paper, but in practice is terribly unbalancing,
particulary against "tanking" heroes, such as the Tauren Chieftain or the
Mountain King.

TRUESHOT AURA

Not as useful since the High Elves only have two ranged units, but still
nice to have..
LEVEL 1: 10% base ranged damage.
LEVEL 2: 20% base ranged damage.
LEVEL 3: 30% base ranged damage.

STARFALL

Starfall is a incredibly destructive spell which can raze bases and
armies by itself, proven it doesn't gets interrupted. A few ways to
protect the starfall is via a wall of heavy units (which the High
Elven, everything must be said, don't have), as well as casting anti-magic
shell on her (one way or another :P). It's also pretty damn good looking.

ULTIMATE: Each wave deals 75 damage, lasts for 30 seconds.

6.9.2.- Pit Lord.

NOTES: The Pit Lord, without any doubt, is the most powerful hero in
the game (After, of course, Archimonde himself). It has ridiculous
stats, sky high HP, attack output and even a great ammount of MP.
It has very low armor, though.

The Pit Lord has three unique things: One, he starts with 5000 HP.
At level one. Go figure. Second, it's the only hero with two ultimates
(*and* he can use *both*). And third, he has *piercing* attack type.

The Pit Lord is a neutral (hireable) hero in The Frozen Throne, but it
has completely changed. It has completely different abilities, much lower
stats, and it's noticeably smaller. Furthermore, it has a completely
different sound set (The ROC one only mumbles unnintillegible words,
very much like Archimonde's language in the final cutscene in the Undead
Campaign), and the model itself is a lot less impressive (The thing runs
like a bull instead of ommiously walking as he does in ROC).

The only Pit Lord in the game is Mannorroth himself. No wonder he's
so overpowered.

Very likely to be the fourth removed Undead Hero.

HERO TYPE: Über Tank Hero.

PROS: Obscene stats. Two powerful ultimates. On top of that crapload
of HPs, the thing has ressurection. Unmatched in the game. As easy
as that.
CONS: The biggest unit in the game. It can get ganged upon by litteraly
dozens of smaller units like Ghouls or Footmen. Despite its absurd
stats, its ability set leaves much to be desired.
BEST PAIRED WITH: N/A.
BEST ARMY: Any ranged unit.

THUNDER CLAP

The Thunder Clap is, on the other hand, a monstruous attack which cripples
enemies like there is no tommorrow. While it doesn't really does much damage,
is pretty useful against the Undead and its masses of Ghouls and Skeletons.
NOTE: The area of effect is, indeed, the exact same of the Mountain King.
However, it looks bigger because the Pit Lord is quite a bit larger than
a Dwarf.

LEVEL 1: 60 damage, -25% movement speed, -25% attack rate.
LEVEL 2: 100 damage, -50% movement speed, -50% attack rate.
LEVEL 3: 140 damage, -70% movement speed, -70% attack rate.

SHOCKWAVE

Powerful stuff. The Shockwave is a good "entrance spell", is like a
"Hello, I'm knocking our door!". Well, let me explain myself. This
spell is seriously good for breaking enemy formations, dealing those
last 150 points of damage to that hero, and the such.

LEVEL 1: 75 damage to land units in a line.
LEVEL 2: 130 damage to land units in a line.
LEVEL 3: 200 damage to land units in a line.

REINCARNATION

What else is there to be said about the Reincarnation? This is simply the
best passive ability in the game. Revive the Pit Lord? Good, but he will
come back with FULL MANA AND HEALTH. That's much better. Is like a life
insurance. Get this thing as soon as possible. A point to be noted is
that this ability might backfire as free exp and money to the enemy, so
be really careful when you let the unit revive, as the ability
takes four minutes to cooldown.

Of course, having at least 5000 HP to wear down again it's difficult
to go wrong.

ULTIMATE: When killed, the Pit Lord will be revived
	    automatically.

EARTHQUAKE

The Earthquake isn't exactly the best weapon in the game, but sometimes
is pretty good. I was once playing against three guys who used lots of
towers, and this thing shone like there was no tommorrow. The slowing
part is good for avoiding peons repairing stuff. Put points here when
your skill of choice is topped.

ULTIMATE: 50 damage/second to buildings, slowing units by 75%,
          lasts 25 seconds.

6.9.3.- WARLOCK

NOTES: The most powerful hero is definitely this one, but, of course,
it's because it is the final boss. The Warlock has devastating
abilities as well as ridiculous stats, and by himself can decimate
armies after armies.

Amongst all the unique things this beast sports are: Chaos attack
type, Divine armor type, four unique spells, the ability to call
Infernals en masse, very powerful attacks and great stats (though
the HP level isn't nowhere near the Pit Lord's). He even has splash
damage.

Did I mention he's immune to spells?

The Warlocks appear in the Frozent Throne as the Eredar, which are
the race of demons Archimonde and Kil'Jaeden are part of, and
are a lot weaker. They are regular creeps.

The only Warlock in the game is Archimonde, who's the final boss.

HERO TYPE: Thy Hero.

PROS: Unstoppable spells, chaos damage, divine armor, ranged attack,
stupid power. It's the best hero in the game hands down. For Crying Out
Loud, it's the damn final boss. His abilities don't REQUIRE MANA!
CONS: Hehe.
BEST PAIRED WITH: N/A.
BEST ARMY: Anything!.

RAIN OF CHAOS

Call down Infernals, anytime, anywhere. It's the same as Inferno,
but it covers a wider area and summons multiple Infernals.

LEVEL 1: Call down two Infernals.
LEVEL 2: Call down three infernals.
LEVEL 3: Call down FOUR Infernals.

DARK PORTAL

BASH

The Bash is a passive ability which gives change to deal less damage but
stunning opponents with a single strike. I recommend to put points of
this after you have top on your favorite attacking tech.

LEVEL 1: 15% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.
LEVEL 2: 25% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 35% chance to deal 25 damage and stun an opponent for 2 seconds.

FINGER OF DEATH

Instantly kill any unit or building. Doesn't works with heroes.

ULTIMATE: Like... haven't you read what i just wrote?

6.10.- Chaos Orc Units.

Only used (and controlled by the player) on the fourth Orcish Mission, "The
Spirits of Ashenvale" (Episode 3, mission 4), though they make an appearance
later as an enemy on the same episode, in the last mission, "By Demons
be Driven". Save their ridiculous chaos attack type (Even Peons!), their are
mostly regular Orc units. An important Note: Only ORC units, and only ORC
ones, the ones from the ORCISH RACE are Chaos units. Trolls and the such
aren't affected by the storyline curse, and as such, don't change.
Grom isn't included as the only change is the Chaos Damage type. For
information about the regular orcs, go to the appropiate section, the
only exception is their truly unique unit, the Chaos Orc Warlocks

*****************************************************************************

7.- Spells and abilities notes.

These are arranged by race and finally the creeps. The Legend, as always:

NAME         : (As if it wasn't obvious - just pretend it isn't -, the name of
the spell or ability.)
HOTKEY       : (Quick access through keyboard. I've include a list of hotkeys
at the end of this section out of pity for those in the middle of the fray
asking someone reading this guide to find the particular hotkey for *Heal Light*)
COST         : (Go ahead and shoot me. Cost of the spell, if any)
EFFECT       : (Effect OR effects of the spell or ability)
RESTRICTIONS : (if any kind of unit is immune to it, and the such)
NOTES        : (My personal comments on the spell or ability. The only part
which might not mean anything useful.)

As a quick side note, no spell of ability "overrides" another in the
traditional sense of the word. So yes, you can have your 1080 Unholy Frenzied -
Inner Fire'd - Rejuvenating - Bloodlusted - powerhouse of an Abomination turned
into an über sheep with extra armor, movement speed, recovering HPs and
which can stamp with its hoof the fortification of a 21th century tank, if
only the thing could attack.

Life affecting spells (Healing Light, Death Coil, Rejuvenation, Heal) don't
affect mechanical units.

Suicide Units explode when casting almost any spell on them.

I didn't include passive abilities such as the Gyrocopter's Bomb. It's fairly
useless as the stats are either already covered or meaningless. Heros abilities
are only added for the missing stats. Its effects and notes are already covered
in their own section.

*BURNING LEGION UNIT*

8.2.- Neutral Buildings.

All neutral buildings are invulnerable and have around 10,000 HP which
means that you can't actually see their hit points in their stat portrait.

MERCENARY CAMP: As the name suggest, you hire mercenaries here. Some of
them are quite powerful, like the Ogre Mauler, but it really depends on
what's there to hire. One of my favorite mercenaries, for example, is
the Dark Troll Warlord, which is a huge and powerful ranged unit with
Trueshot aura. The Ogre-Magi are also very powerful. One advantage is
that they are there always available while supplies lasts, and they
appear at the second you pay. Watch your food limit when hiring.
Check the Creeps and Mercenaries section for some info about them.

Here is a quick table. Feel free to print it out and stick it to
your mother's refrigerator for reference.

*****************************************************************************

9.- Items.

IMPORTANT: This section is HUGE. Use ctrl+f to searc for the item you need info
about. I used the map editor to compile this section. That's the hardest copy
you can find about them because, well, that's hardcoded. Inconsistencies have
been reported. Feel free to ask about them.

Item's level range from 1 to 8. No longer do level 10 item exist.

CHARGED: Item which comes with several useage. When it runs out, it dissapears.
That number of useages are denoted by a little number on the icon.
ARTIFACT: Level 7 or higher items. Difficult to find.
MISCELLANOUS ITEM: Dropped at random by critters.
POWER UP ITEM: Permanent power up. As of 1.10, they act immediatly when picking
them up. Previously, they went into the inventory, and they had to be used
manually to provide the Power up.

NOTE: All items have 75 HP, light armor type. You can destroy them, which in
fact is a good idea if you're not gonna use the item and don't want the enemy
casting multiple instant lightning shields on your units (For some reason
that particular item - not the spell - seems to work wonderfully for everyone
but me).
NOTE: Items which provide an aura do not stack (do not add) to an aura or
passive ability already had by the hero. They all work at level 1.
NOTE II: I had some trouble separating the items from the expansion pack, and
as such, some item might have been mistakenly labeled as such. Any corrections
would be appreciated. I also cannot understand the difference between the
regular level of the item and the 'unclassified' level. As always, feel free
to help.
NOTE ABOUT THE ORBS: These items are erratic on their info. Any comments will
be very appreciated, especially about their level and price. All the orbs
were changed when The Frozen Throne was released (added ranged attack against
air, as well as adding an Orb of corruption, Slow and Venom), and I guess some
changes were made for The Reign of Chaos as well.
NOTE III: I couldn't find any hard info about the potion of speed or the potion
of greater invisibility. Another cry for help.
NOTE IV: I did not included the flags for each race, as they are just used for
special scenarios and don't have any particular use or history behind them.

11.- Walkthrough.

The Walkthrough has been written on Normal difficult though I expect to have
a hard more walkthrough rather quickly after the regular walkthrough, secrets
and anything else are done. I've purposely left the cinematics and the such
out of the guide for the sake of shortening up the count of spoilers.

(It isn't like I've not already spoiled the whole series on my Plot Guide)

The Items section of each mission is probably imcomplete, and for some
missions, empty. Any help or contributions will be REALLY appreciated.

The Heroes levels are just recommendations. They will start in the level
you left them in the previous mission, though each mission has its
individual level caps. These are (mostly) accurate.

I've purposely left most of the items out of the walkthrough, though
I've added them to the list. This is for you, dear reader, to get
off your lazy ass and try to find them all on your own.

The Prologue is more or less a tutorial for the new players to learn the
basics of the game and hero system. Originally, this episode was 5 levels
long, but the final three levels were cut off from the final release. They
are now available on the Demo Version of the game and in the Frozen Throne.
I added them to the same prologue for continuity reasons.

Somewhere in the Arathi highlands, Thrall, young war Chief of the Orc hordes
wakes from his terrible dream...

MAIN QUESTS: FIND THE PROPHET
		- Follow the Narrator's Directions.
		- Find the Prophet.

OPTIONAL   : N/A
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Mana
		 Potion of Health
		 Ring of Protection +1
		 Phat Lewt*

STARTING   : Thrall (level 1 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES

*You can't really get it though.

The first tutorial mission is fairly straightforward, and no real problems
should be encountered.

To get thru it, listen to the Narrator, or simply follow the path. You
will find some resistance around, but they will all be low level creatures.
Be careful, though, at the low-right corner of the game are two level 3 Stone
Golems, which are immune to Thrall's Chain Lightning.

3 Days later, near the Lordaeron Coast...

MAIN QUESTS: BUILD A BASE
		- Build a Burrow
		- Build a War Mill
		- Build Barracks
		- Train 5 grunts

		FIND GROM
		- Find Grom (duh)
		- Destroy the Towers guarding Grom.

OPTIONAL   : N/A
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of healing

STARTING   : Thrall (level 1 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES	 Peon x1

Another fairly straightforward mission. At the start, start mining gold
and the comp will gift you with three other peons. You need to build a
regular base and 5 grunts in order to continue. This should be easy,
and hell, I can't tell you how to do it!

Killing the Gnolls next to your base will yield you a Scroll of Healing.

When the fifth Grunt comes out, you will be greeted by a band of humans
(four Footmen and a Captain), which will build a bridge out of water (!),
and attack you. You can actually save the tower they are attacking, though
it might be kinda hard for begginers. Once you kill them, advance killing
humans and attacking and taking down the doors. Every once in awhile you
will come and find some cages. When the nearby humans are dispatched, either
Grunts or Shamans will come out of them. After the third group of cages, you
will find Grom, though he's being watched by some towers.

The two Knights in there might take out a couple of grunts, but they shall
be overwhelmed by sheer numbers. Same for the Towers. Once the towers are
razed, the mission is over.

MAIN QUESTS: IT'S MY ISLAND!
            - Destroy the Human Outpost.

OPTIONAL  : DEFILED FOUNTAIN
QUESTS     - Obtain the Vine of Purification
           - Obtain the Seed of Expulsion
           - Return both items to the fountain

ITEMS FOUND: Tome of Agility

		 Circlet of Nobility
		 Potion of Healing
		 Scroll of Healing
		 Scroll of Protection
		 Scroll of the Beast
		 Tome Of Intelligence +2

STARTING   : Thrall (level 3 Farseer Hero)
FORCES	 Grunt x1
             Peon x5
             Wolf Raider x1
		 Shaman x2

(You get two Troll Headhunters right off the bat)

NOTE: RIDERS ON THE STORM is one of the "lost missions" available either
in the Frozen Throne or in the demo, available for download. They occur
here in the storyline. The Frozen Throne ones don't even have speeches.
These missions are kinda buggy (particulary on the graphics doodads),
but they are pretty nice.

Directly north of you is another rescueable HH, and a bit more north some
human troops. Your objective is to destroy the human base to the west.
This is rather easy. To the west of your base a Troll Heahunter will join
you and give you the OPTIONAL QUEST, DEFILED FOUNTAIN. For now, go south,
eliminating whatever enemies you find. Amongst them are some hard to see
level 2 Mud Golems who drop an item. From there, head east and eliminate
the Lizards and claim the Seed of Expulsion.

To the west of the south section are some more creeps, some humans and two
more Head Hunters. Now head to the center of the map, some more Heahunters
will join you.

The Vine of Purification is north of your base, guarded by three Ogres.
Return to the Fountain, and you will restore it, and you will receive
from Sen'jil three Healing Wards.

Also, the humans might attack you right here, with a level 3 Archmage.
I think, but I haven't comfirmed, that he will attack you automatically,
furthermore, he will be respawned instantly.

Anyway, time to attack. Grab a few Grunts (8 or so), a couple Catapults,
and whatever Trolls you have left and hit the human base. As soon as you
destroy the Town Hall, the mission is finished.

Thrall finds himself in an underground lair, held prisoner by the
Murlocs, and separated from his companions...

MAIN QUESTS: THE GREAT ESCAPE

OPTIONAL  : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Mana x3

		 Potion of Greater Mana
		 Claws of Attack +6
		 Orb of Fire
		 Hood of Cunning
		 Tome of Knowledge
		 Tome of Intelligence +2
		 Tome of strenght +2
		 Tome of agility +2

STARTING   : Thrall (level 4 Farseer Hero)
FORCES	 Troll Head Hunter

NOTE: Another of the "Lost Missions". Check above.

After Thrall's amazing escape, head east destroying crates, and
rescuing your units. You can free the Humans as well, but they will
only attack you. Be careful of the second cell, where a level 3
ghost will attack you. You should rescue three units on this hall.

At the end of the hallway, attack the two Murloc Mutants (level 6),
and destroy the gate. Keep going and you will behold a huge fight
between humans and murlocs. The Murlocs will most than likely win,
and it's up to you to finish the job. A Scroll of Healing is your
reward. BY Now you should have 7 prisoners left.

Go north, cross the river killing the skeletons, and you will find
two imprisoned Grunts (5 prisoners left). Head north and destroy
the spiders. Keep going and a spider ambush will occur when you
see the human dead bodies. Keep going and destroy the Lizards,
which will yield an Orb of Fire.

Well, now,  you will reach a place where some golems will attack
you. Don't go north, go south to liberate a Shaman (4 Prisoners
left). You can free him either breaking the cell, or from the back,
destroying the rocks. Your choice. Now, go north.

Eventually you will hit a place with a boulder wall and a Troll
will say something. Break through the rocks and free two more
Trolls (2 prisoners left). Keep pushing west, and face a rather
large group of Gnolls after large group of Gnolls. Head south,
and you will reach a large hallway where another shaman is held.
Free him (1 prisoner to go).

Now you can go south to defeat a group of wraiths, which are
protecting four different tomes (!), and then north, where the
last... THREE? (wtf)units wait for you to rescue them. Once
you do, you will trigger a cutscene and recieve a new MAIN QUEST,
THE RITUAL. You need to go north and kill the three Murloc Guardians,
and then the energy field with go down. Now, kill the Murloc Sorcerer,
who's quite a powerful magician, and finish the mission. Yipee!

FORCES	 Grunt x2

             Wolf Raider x1
		 Troll Headhunter x2

NOTE: The final Demo Map.

This is a defensive map. Just as you start, a couple trolls will
come over, and give you the OPTIONAL QUEST, ISLAND TROLLS. These
Trolls locations are marked in the map and don't require more than
Thrall and a handful of grunts.

Build lots of Towers and Trolls. You can, as a matter of facts,
destroy the Murloc bases, but they are ridiculously difficult
to destroy since their build speeds are insanely fast.

Use Thrall as a a mobile shock troop with some Grunts. Replace fallen
towers and use a couple of catapults to soften the enemies. Don't
try to go and attack them unless you have lots of units, and, as a
matter of facts, you better don't try it. It's far too difficult.
Instead, keep defending . Place one or two Shamans per entrance
with a few grunts, five or so Headhunters, and a couple o' Witch
Doctors, to heal your battered units.

As ussual, at the end, a massive rush will ensue. Treat it accordingly to
end this one. The storyline for this one continues on the Orc Campaign,
in Kalimdor.

To complete this quest, go to the east and kill the Bandits in there.
You will find three bandits (level 1) and a Brigand (level 2) in the river,
and then four Bandits, two briands and Menag himself, who's level 5. Kill
them (one of them will drop a Potion of Mana), and recover the Ledger, and
bring it back to Gerard. He will give you something for your trouble: A
Tome of Strenght.

Finally, move to the town and kill all orcs around. When you reach
the Slavemaster you will see him take away some humans, unfortunately,
you can't save them yet. Kill the remaining orcs to finish the mission.

Twenty Minutes later, at Uther's Encampment near the Blackrock clan
village...

MAIN QUESTS: ESTABLISH A BASE
	      - Construct a Barrack
	      - Train 6 Footmen
		- Construct 2 farms
		- Arthas Must Survive

		 BLADEMASTER
	      - Defeat Blademaster

OPTIONAL  : DRAGON HUNTERS
QUESTS     - Slay Searinox, the Black Dragon
	     - Bring the Heart of Searinox to Feanor Steeltoe

ITEMS FOUND: Orb of Fire
		 Potion of Mana
		 Claws of Attack +3
		 Gauntlets of Ogre Strenght +3
		 Wand of Negation

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 2 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Peasant x5

At the start, Uther will be patroling around so base defense will not be
a problem since he's a mighty level 10 paladin.

Build the base, and as soon as the sixth footmen appears, a Blademaster
will appear, but it would be an illusion. Now you will receive the
BLADE MASTER main quest. This also appears if you reach the Blademaster before
you build the sixth peon. He's located to the northeast of your base, and
is level 6. Slay him to finish this quest.

To the right of your base is a Workshop with a Dwarven Mortar Team named
Feanor Steeltoe in there. He will give you the DRAGON HUNTERS quest.
To complete this quest, to the east of this place, there are several Black
Dragon Whelps, as well as as a level 8 Black Drake named Searinox. Kill
him, recover the item, and bring it back to Steeltoe. You will receive
an orb of fire. Be sure to bring a few Dwarven Riflemen to engange the
monster, as he's fairly dangerous.

To the north of your base is a Gnoll encampment with three Gnolls. One of
them drops a Potion of Mana. Further north is a Murloc Encampment with several
Murlocs and a Murloc Huntsman which will drop a Claws of Attack +3.

To the north of the map is an orc encampment which is fairly difficult to
destroy. I suggest to destroy the farms first with a good contingent of
Footmen and Riflemen, then destroy the unit producers. It makes things
much easier.

Once the Blademaster is killed, the mission ends.

Three days later in Alterac, Arthas and his men wait near a crossroad along
King's road.

MAIN QUESTS: INVESTIGATE VILLAGE
	      - Explore the countryside
	      - Arthas Must Survive
		- Jaina Must survive

		 GRAIN WAREHOUSE
	      - Destroy Grain Warehouse

OPTIONAL   : FOUNTAIN OF HEALTH
QUESTS      - Find the Fountain of Health

ITEMS FOUND: Maul of Strenght +1
		 Mantle of Intelligence +3
		 Potion of healing x2
		 Bracer of Agility
		 Scroll of Protection
		 Scroll of Healing
		 Potion of Greater Healing
		 Potion of Mana

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 3 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Jaina (level 1 Archmage Hero)
		 Captain
		 Footman x2

This another fairly easy mission, largely thanks to Jaina, who's an
Archmage, who can become certainly powerful quickly. Coupled with Arthas,
this mission should be a piece of cake.

Start by going northwest, and talk to whoever asks to be talked to. They
will mention that the bridge ahead is broken, and you will have to take
the long road to get to the other side. Head east now, and you will face a
group of Bandits (level 1). When you kill them, you will earn a Potion
of Greater Healing.  You will also get the FOUNTAIN OF HEALTH optional
quest. Keep going north.

You will face a group of Murlocs (Tiderruners and Huntsmen), and, when
the path breaks, go to the north to face a group of Enforcers and Rogues,
then go south to go on.

The next battle might yield some causalties, so keep healing, and more
importantly, get your Footmen (and captain) into defend mode. Heal the
three allied footmen, because what's left of you will be your reinforcements.
The Wand of Negation hidden in the previous mission might prove useful
here as Skeletons are totally destroyed by it. To the northwest of here
is the Fountain of Health, where the FOUNTAIN OF HEALTH quest is
accomplished. Now go south, and you will find an infected granary. When
you destroy it (actually when you find it), the INVESTIGATE VILLAGE
quest will be completed. Now go south, and face the skeletons and
necromancers, which shouldn't pose a threat. Further south you will
get two Priests. Keep them behind.

Now head left, where you will also get a Dwarven Mortar Team, which wouldn't
be thaaaat useful, but hey, it's reinforcements :). To the south is a
very visible Mantle of Intelligence +3, which will work wonders for Jaina.
To the north, you will meet the Necromancer Kel'thuzad, who will flee
leaving an Abomination and several ghouls. The abomination will attack
you right away, the Ghouls will wait for you. Afterwards, just target
and destroy the granary to finish the mission.

QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND:

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 4 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Jaina (level 3 Archmage Hero)
		 Footman x3
		 Peasant x3
		 Priest
		 Mortar Team

This mission might get you unprepared if you don't build a good defense.
The Undead base to the north of yours will regulary attack you with waves
of Ghouls and Necromancers. Build plenty of Priests to counter the second,
the first ones will be dealt by Arthas and his footmen rather well. I
recommend you to build two towers by the west entrance of your base.

Nearby your base is a destroyed farm and a woman. As you approach her,
two ghouls will appear. Be careful.

You will be revealed another mine. Send Jaina with four or five footmen to
clear out the path, and establish a Town Hall in there and start mining.

Start building another barrack and start pumping out Footmen and Riflemen,
and tech to get Priests and train at least 8 or 10 of them. When you have
a sizeable force (say ten footmen, ten riflemen, and 8 or 6 priests),
led them with Arthas and Jaina to take out the enemy base. Establish a base
there as well. Go further and you will meet Kel'thuzad again, who will
warn you and leave two ALMIGHTY GHOULS TO ELIMINATE YOU FROM THE FACE OF
THE EARTH, BWHAHAHAHAHAH*COUGH*HAHAHA*COUGHCOUGH*HAHAHAARRRRGH*CHOKES*...

Actually, those are two regular ghouls.

Follow the path north, and you will find several Abominations and a
Slaughterhouse, as well as Kel'thuzad. He should not pose any trouble.
When he's down to 3 HP, the mission ends.

Early the next morning, Arthas and Jaina approached the village of
Hearthglen.

MAIN QUESTS: DEFEND HEARTHGLEN
	      - Survive for Thirty Minutes
	      - Arthas Must Survive

OPTIONAL   : THE GRAIN CARAVAN
QUESTS      - Destroy the Grain Caravan before it gets to the last
		 village.

ITEMS FOUND:
STARTING   : Arthas (Level 5 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Footman x5
		 Peasant x4
		 Priest
		 Dwarven Riflemen x2

You will be greeted by a number of zombies, who won't be a problem, but
several of your Footmen will die anyway. To the south is a little house,
get Arthas there to get three additional footmen. Start building footmen
and Riflemen on lots and position them according on the three entrances.
The northeast will get rarely attacked, but at least you know you have
those troops in there. There are two undead bases which will constantly
attack you.

It would serve as a good idea to hotkey a group of eleven footmen with Arthas.
Keep them on the move to attack invaders. Also, keep a very atent eye to the
meat Wagons who will make fun of your towers.

When there are about 21:40 minutes left, you will receive THE GRAIN CARAVAN
optional subquest. You will receive notice when they move, and you need to
destroy them. If you don't, for each infected village you will be attacked
by several ghouls and zombies. Furthermore, if you fail to destroy it, a
third undead base will rise, and the final waves will be even harder to stop.

The Caravan will stay where they are for you for awhile. You should assault it
with Arthas and a lot of Riflemen and several Footmen. Is fairly difficult
to destroy, but is easier this way.

At the end of the mission, at around 2 minutes left, you will be heavily
attacked from all sides. Make sure you're ready. If a Town Hall survives,
as well as Arthas, you've won.

Early in the Morning, on the outskirts of Stratholme...

MAIN QUESTS: THE CULLING
	      - Destroy Plagued Villager Houses
		- Kill 100 villagers
		- Stop Mal'ganis from claiming 100 zombies.
	      - Arthas Must Survive

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS


ITEMS FOUND:
STARTING   : Arthas (Level 7 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Peasant x7
		 Knight x2
		 Footman x2

This mission is a frantic effort to stop Mal'ganis from claiming villagers,
while you try to kill him. Furthermore, the Undead will also attack your
base. This is a midly difficult mission in Normal, but in Hard is ridiculously
tough.

On your base, start doing the ussual building and commanding. You need to
set up a quick defense via several towers, riflemen, and a couple of
footmen. The Riflemen are very important for defense on this level.  Second,
build several knights, and group them with Arthas. You might also want some
Priests, though in Normal i've managed to drudge it around without 'em.
Of course, i'm a freaking masochist. For crying out loud, i'm writing a
walkthrough.

A few Mortar Teams might be useful.

Mal'Ganis will be visible to you all the time he's on town. He will do
the same as you do, except he doesn't kills them, he barely consumes them.
You need to kill villagers as well as stop him. The first minutes, go
full throttle and attack all buildings and kill everything you see. An
important thing to note is that Villagers will get out of their houses,
they will take a moment before they fall asleep and turn into zombies.
Villagers are INFINITELY easier to kill than zombies. They will die in one
hit by Arthas or the Knights. If you can move fast enough, you can kill
all villagers before they turn into Zombies and save a helluva lot of time.

Engaging Mal'Ganis is a viable idea at the start of the mission, but after
being killed once or twice he will come back with a really big army behind
his back which will make him extremely difficult to take down. His sleep
ability will need a lot of micromanagment to counter, but it's all you
can do to keep the battle going. Once you kill 100 villagers, the mission
is over.

	      - Arthas Must Survive

		 MAL'GANIS

OPTIONAL   : RESCUE MURADIN'S MEN
QUESTS      - Rescue Dwarves' base.


ITEMS FOUND:
STARTING   : Arthas (Level 8 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Captain*
		 Priest
		 Footman x3

*Captain is a slightly buffed up Ranger with the Elven Footman model. If
he dies, he can't be resurrected as he's not a hero. His fate doesn't
makes any difference to the game.

At the start, go quickly attacking to the left, and taking out the
wolves you will find. Stay hugging the northeast side of the map since
otherwise you will most likely find Wendigos, and that is not on your
best interests since they are mighty annoying.

Eventually you will find a gold mine, and you will meet Muradin, a level
5 Dwarven Mountain King who will be very useful. You will also receive
the RESCUE MURADIN'S MEN Optional quest, as well as three Peasants who
will start building the base.

This mission is fairly simple now. You can use Muradin and Arthas to
creep around and gain some experience. I recommend now to build 12
or 16 Riflemen and attack with both heroes to the base north of yours. If
you reach the Dwarves' base before is totally destroyed, you will get
it as a new base, plus some units.

Mal'ganis base is to the northwest of this one and is equally simple,
except for the annoying level 6 Lich in there and the group of Gargoyles.
Using Siege Tanks will make this a lot easier, backed up by a good amount
of Riflemen and both heroes should be the doom of them. Mission Complete.

Early the next morning at Arthas' new base camp...

MAIN QUESTS: BURN THE BOATS

		- Muradin must survive
	      - Arthas Must Survive

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS


ITEMS FOUND: Goblin Night Scope
		 Potion of mana
STARTING   : Arthas (Level 8 Paladin Hero)
FORCES	 Muradin (Level 6 Mountain King Hero)*
		 Mortar Team x2

*Not really sure about Muradin's level.

NOTE: Despite what the game tells you, you cannot hit the
ships with Storm Bolt.

This level gives you 15 minutes to finish five ships. Mortar
Teams are invaluable in taking them down. While you can recruit units,
they won't really be needed, but they can be useful.

Start going west, taking out the ghouls. You will reach a place with
an Spirit tower. Shoot at the nearest ghoul to attract them, and
take them out with Arthas and Muradin. DO NOT LET THE MORTAR TEAMS DIE.
THEY WILL BE NEEDED. Your first recruit camp will be there. The best
choice are the healers, but you can recruit them all right now.

Go ahead, and carefully move the heroes to the northern path and take
out the undead in the graveyard. Now, move again carefully the Mortar
teams north and begin taking out from the ledge the Spirit towers.
Keep the mercenaries with them to protect them. Sink now the nearby ship.

The next ship is close and the only obstacle is a mighty group of powerful
Nerubians (two lords, several seers and a queen), which might kill some
of your units (DO NO LET THE MORTAR TEAMS DIE), and then sink the next
ship. There is a close Mercenary Camp to refill your army.

Keep going and you will find a group of Murlocs, and the next ship, as well
as the next Goblin Shop. You can buy some sappers to make quick work of
the trees or use the Mortar Teams. The next mercenary camp is close,
and the final test, a huge undead camp. You can buy an Amulet of Recall and
run Muradin and Arthas to the last ship, then use the amulet to transport
the troops and finish the mission.

ITEMS FOUND:

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 9 Paladin Hero)

		 Knight x6
		 Footman x3
		 Peasant x4
		 Gryphon Rider
		 Gyrocopter
		 Riflemen x7
		 Sorceress
		 Priest x3
		 Captain

*Once again, not sure about Muradin's Level. He might be level 7 however,
at least.


Well, this is the last human mission, and it's a toughie. To start, you
need to find Frostmourne, the mythical sword, as well as defend your base.

Start building up your defenses. The base is fairly vulnerable right now,
so send down several Riflemen and Footmen to each front, and a couple of
Griphon Riders will be useful to hunt down ranged attackers. It's mighty
difficult to keep them all alive, though six priests (three for each front),
should buy you enough time. The northeast entrance is almost harmless.

Now, take control of Arthas and Muradin, and start making your way north.
This path might be challenging but is fairly straightforward. Just make
sure you heal your units, because you need them all for the final battle.
You will meet various wolves, and at the graveyard, skeletons and Wraiths.
The last can curse you, so wait for awhile for it to vanish. There is a Healing
Fountain over there if you need it.

The Last battle is a gainst a rather heavy level 10 creep which can
severely deal a lot of damage. Use Muradin's Avatar for the best results. Once
you beat it, you will lose Muradin, and Arthas will reach Frostmourne,
gaining Chaos Damage type.

Now, with Arthas back in your base, is time to go to the offensive. There
are two Undead Bases, but your objective is the green one to the north.
You can try taking out the other one as it is MUCH MORE easier to destroy.

The green one will require a good army. I recommend two full units of
Riflemen and Footmen, several priests and Sorceress, five or so Gryphons,
all fully Upgraded. You don't need the Sorceress, or Knights, but hell are
they useful. You can try replacing the Footmen with Knights if resources
allow. Use the melee troops to engage enemies with the help of Arthas,
and let the Riflemen shoot buildings. Priests in the back will
extend the life of your units, and if you brought Sorceress, they
will slow down enemy units, which is substantially more useful in base
attacks than what it seems. Gryphons are mighty Building Demolishers (TM),
so let them hack at it while the defenders are distracted.

The attack will take a long time, so make sure you replenish your forces
if you are falling behind. There is a mercenary camp on the way between
your base and the purple undead base. Furthermore, there is a secondary
green outpost to the west of the main one, which will do you well if
you destroy it. When the base is razed, the mission (and episode) is over.

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Healing x3.
		 Potion of Greater Healing x2.
		 Ring of Protection +2.
		 Spider Ring.

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 1 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Ghoul x2

This is a fairly straightforward mission. Your mission is to run thru the
villages looking for the villagers whose colors are dark red: Those are
acolytes in hiding, who will turn into their true forms once you reach them.
The twist is that you have to avoid the other villagers (or kill them)
or you will have to face human guards.

At the start, head southwest and gather whatever acolytes you see there.
You will meet one in the middle of the bridge. There is one next to the guy
chopping wood and another just leaving the village. This one will give you
your optional quest FIND THE GRAVEYARD, which we will complete in a second.
The next section might spell some problems, so leave the ghouls there. You
will be granted a Shade to scout for you. Set it to guard the round of Footmen,
and use Arthas to move to the south, where you will find a lumber mill, two
villagers and an acolyte (should be the fourth). Kill the villagers, use
the death coil if nescesary. Break the boxes to reveal a Potion of Healing.
Use the same with the north group of villagers (5). Go south again.

NOTE: Killing the patrol group will net you a Potion of Greater Healing,
and killing the horses behind the barracks will reveal a Ring of
Protection +2. Be wary, though, both tasks will be extremely difficult to
accomplish.

To the south are two more acolytes hiding. From there, to the north,
is an small town, however, the main entrance is HEAVILY guarded, so just use
the back entrance, just north of the farm grounds. Another acolyte is just
there, (7) and there are three more all around. It might be worthy this
time to just scout, touch the acolytes, and get the hell out of there.

Leaving the town is the graveyard, where Arthas will raise four skeleton
warriors and two ghouls, as well as completing the optional quest FIND THE
GRAVEYARD. Wee.

Go north now. In the town a bandit assault will occur, kill everyone and
rescue the acolyte (11), and now go left and south, where you will find
an acolyte... well, a busy acolyte. Now go north, and you will find four
bandits and an assassin (level 4). Kill them and you will be granted with
another Potion of Healing and a Spider Ring, as well as the 13th acolyte.
Push east now, and break the door, meeting two Footmen and another acolyte.
To the left of the door is another acolyte.

This town has an acolyte going inmediatly south, one hiding in the bushes
with a sheep, and two going the south path. You will most likely have to
face another round of two footmen on this one. Now, find the
resting acolytes on the town, which will be imprisoned on the cages, and
there is another acolyte to the north, which should be the final one.

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 2 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Ghoul x5
		 Meat Wagon x3

This level has plenty of secrets, so check out the secrets section.

The start of the mission is pretty easy. Use the Meat Wagons to take
out buildings and towers, and the ghouls with Arthas as a strike
force. Kill the Paladin and approach the graveyard to finish the
first objective.

Now you will be granted a number of Acolytes and more ghouls. Start
establishing a regular base, while you tak eyour attack units and
go south. Kill all the golems, and reach the southeast corner of the
map, where a Granite Golem (level 9!!) will attack you. It will leave
a pendant of energy.

The first base you would like to destroy will be the upper one, as its
the easier. A level 4 Paladin will be there. Smash him down.

The blue base will be continously attacking you with footmen, but it
shall pose no problem provided you have two or three Spirit Towers
and a few ghouls on guard. The blue base itself is pretty easy, save
the level 5 Paladin which is sorta difficult. A group of at least 16
ghouls would do, backed up by Arthas and a few Meat Wagons. The Paladin
will leave a Gloves of Haste for your work.

Uther Lightbringer is to the south of the blue base, and is considerably
more powerful than any other Paladin. He is a pain in the ass to beat.
Attack with at least 24 ghouls, and it might require two assaults to
bring him down, one to kill his guard and one to kill him. One of
his tents has a Scroll of protection. Once you take him out and take
the Urn, the mission ends.

After the initial cutscene, build your base, and try to get a defense
up an running very quickly. On this mission, the objective is to
destroy the southern High Elf (blue) base, but there are numerous other
High Elf bases (teal ones) which will be annoying you, and, most
importantly you will have to deal with the constant attacks by Silvanas
Windrunner, a level 4 ranger hero with Trueshot Aura and Cold Arrows.
She will attack within the first two minutes or so by the southeast
entrance to your base.

Keep Meat Wagons with you at all times to destroy trees.

To the east is a small teal base, which might be worth destroying for
extra money, and it's easy to defend, shall Silvanas' forces ever hit it.
Just south of it is an useful Goblin Merchant. There are other two teal
bases. Forces of Ghouls and Meat Wagons will do, but keep an eye for
Silvanas, who can (and will) change the course of battle if she gets
there.

The last base, the blue one, is best taken down with Meat Wagons guarded
by Ghouls, and let Arthas and necromancers be the main weapons. The
Skeletons generated by the massive peons will help a lot to take this
one out, and remember to take out Silvanas as soon as she appears.

The siege on Quel'talas continues.

After seeing how Silvanas mocks Arthas and pisses him off, we're
stuck on this side of the river. On the good side, she mentions
that we need a special key to open the next door.

You will receive three Crypt Fiends at the start of the mission.
To the west is a small settlement with two knights, kill them both
and destroy the crates to receive a scroll of Mana. To the east is
another small base, where you can use your Crypt Fiends to destroy
the enemies and establish your own base. The objective of this
mission is to destroy three High Elf Altars of Kings, and claim
the three pieces of the key of the final door.

The gold will be a pressure to go. Make sure you make good use of
it. Your base will be constantly attacked by air units as well as
Silvanas, who's still trying to send Arthas' undead ass back home.
She will be respawned almost instantly each time she's killed,
which means that no matter how many times you kill her, she'll be
there to defend her base, which is, BTW, the northwest one. That should
be the last one you attack, as it is the hardest one to take down.

She'll be level 5 by now, which means that her Cold Arrows are
devastating.

Well, the point is, quickly, go east and get the free zeppellins. Fill
them with Crypt Fiends and Meat Wagons, and send them to the smaller
base to the east, with Arthas leading them. Necromancers will do
wonders at base defense, but be sure to send Arthas back if Silvanas
attacks. To the north of your base, build plenty of Spirit Towers to
destroy the air units blue will throw at you.
Advance slowly, using the Crypt Fiends as meat shields for your Meat Wagons,
and the base should fall. Take out the Altar of Kings (1), and establish
another base there.

The Gate Portal there will lead to the settlement directly north of your
base. There isn't any Altar, but the next portal leads directly into
Silvanas' base. While it would make more sense to attack here next, the
fact that Silvanas' herself is hanging out here will make it pretty
hard to beat this base. Attack with lots of Crypt Fiends and Necromancers,
creating a massive meat shield with Skeletons, and direct your fire to
the priests. Ignore the Dragon Hawks if possible, as no corpse comes out
of them. Raze the Altar as quickly as possible to stop Silvanas' from
vexing you any longer. You may want a third base here.

The next base will require plenty of Crypt Fiends, but since they have
no heroes there, is much easier to destroy. Once the final Altar is
destroyed, and the three mooncrystals picked up, send a zeppellin with
Arthas and a few Meat Wagons to the Elfgate, and enter the circle of
power.

| THE FALL OF SILVERMOON |
|________________________|

Moments later, on the outskirts of the elves capital of Silvermoon...

MAIN QUESTS: THE SUNWELL
		 - Defeat Sunwell's guardians

OPTIONAL   : SILVANAS WINDRUNNER
QUESTS       - Destroy Silvanas' Base

		 SILVERMOON RUNNERS
		 - Destroy every runner she sends
		 - Do not alert Silvermoon of your presence.

ITEMS FOUND: Hood of Cunning (Drop by Silvanas)

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 6 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Acolyte x5
		 Necromancer
		 Crypt Fiends x4

This is an interesting mission. Once again, the grudge between
Silvanas Windrunner and Arthas continues, now on the line of
Silvermoon. Silvanas will be level 7 now, and she will throughly
annoy you this level, after a couple of minutes and so on. She
will also send runners to Silvermoon, and if she succedes, the biggest
High Elf city will start attacking you, and that's something you
don't really want.

Fortunately, four Gargoyles will be patroling the farthest path of
the runners, and you can take care of the others rather easily.

This mission is actually easier than the last. Simply, build a rather
large attack force with 4 Meat Wagons, 12 Crypt Fiends and a couple of
Necromancers, and raze Silvanas base. Once you destroy it, Silvanas
will join you as a beefed up banshee, but the best part is that you
now will be able to build your own banshees. From now on, the rest
of the mission is straight forward: You have all the time in the world
to assault Silvermoon. Build lots of Gargoyles and Crypt Fiends, and use
your Banshees to steal enemy units.

The four guardians on the Sunwell are pretty tough, but, fortunately,
they fall quickly to hordes of skeletons. So there.

The next morning, on the outskirts of the Blackrock clan village.

MAIN QUESTS: DEMON GATE
		 - Destroy the Orc Base protecting the demon gate.

OPTIONAL   : KILL ORC HEROES
QUESTS       - Throk'Feroth
 		 - Mazrigos
	       - Khanzo
		 - Genjuros
		 - Jubei'thos


ITEMS FOUND: Manual of Health
		 Sobi Mask
		 Tome of Strenght
		 Tome of Agility
		 Tome of Intelligence
		 Tome of Knowledge

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 7 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Kel'Thuzad (Level 5 Lich Hero)
		 Acolyte x5
		 Crypt Fiends x2
		 Ghoul x2
		 Meat Wagon x2
		 Gargoyle x4
		 Shade

Your goal on this level is to destroy the red orc base. Unfortunately,
that's pretty difficult. Fortunately, you will have access to your
air siege unit, the Frost Wyverns, which will make short work of towers
and the like. You will be gifted with one as soon as the mission starts.
Also, you have Kel'thuzad, who, as a Lich, will help lots on combat.

A few minutes later, a Blademaster will attack you along a few units.
Once you waste him, you will receive the KILL ORC HEROES OPTIONAL QUEST.
Each one you will will net you a tome of something, so it's pretty
lucrative to do this quest. Only Light Blue and brown Orcs will attack
you, but their attacks are pretty brutal- you might want to destroy
them first. Red will send Dragons every once in awhile.

Well, start by building an strong defense, particulary to the southeast,
since the brown orc base will strike with Ogre-Magi, which are very
destructive and powerful. Try to take them out as soon as possible. I
managed (with some massive micro-management) to destroy it with three
Frost Wyverns, five Crypt Fiends, Arthas and Kel'thuzad, but you might
want something that's less risky. Seven more Crypt Fiends and perhaps
a couple of Meat Wagons will surely give you victory, just make sure
you target those Ogre-magi first. Genjuros, a level 4 Blademaster, is
here.

You might be tempted to build a base here, but guard it, as light blue
will attack it. Light Blue's base is just north of it, the same attack
force, reinforced with your favorite options (I recommend more Crypt
Fiends) will do. Mazrigos, a very annoying level 6 Far Seer, is there.

Now you can safely attack the Red base, but perhaps finishing the
optional quest is a better idea. Head directly west from your base and
you will find the blue base, which has Khanzo, a level 4 Blademaster.
The final base (orange) has Trok'feroth, a level 6 Far seer. Both bases
are more or less easy to take down.

Red's base is a pain in the ass. Drop the Frost Wyrm, and load on
Necromancers, Crypt Fiends/Ghouls (depending whether you want to rely
on your Necromancers or not), and lots of Gargoyles. A few Meat Wagons
and both heroes. Now, stay on the border of the base and strike the towers.
When Dragons come flying in, send the Gargoyles, and use the cannon fodder
to protect your Wagons. When the battlefield becomes cluttered enough, and
no Catapults are on sight, crank out skeletons.

You may have to repeat the strike once or twice, as the base is ridiculously
difficult to destroy. Jubei'thos himself, a level 8 Blademaster, is a
very hard enemy. If you destroyed all the other bases, though, you should be
able to repeat the siege until you win the mission.

11.3.7.-

| THE SIEGE OF DALARAN |
|______________________|

The next morning, at the gates of Dalaran...

MAIN QUESTS: SLAY THE ARCH MAGI
		 - Slay the first mage
		 - Slay the Second Mage
		 - Slay Antonidas

OPTIONAL   : None
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Health Stone
             Scroll of Mana

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 8 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Kel'Thuzad (Level 6 Lich Hero)
		 Crypt Fiend x2
		 Meat Wagon x2
		 Abominations x2
		 Ghoul x8
		 Acolyte x7

While this is a difficult stage, I personally didn't found it so impossible
as some people said (Someone suggested an strategy for a quick four-hour
victory on a particular strategy guide - not the writer's fault, but
he should have filtered some particular, while effective, ridiculous
strategies). Good control and quick and decisive strikes will spell
victory on this fun mission.

Well, the objective is to take out the three Arch Magi holding the
aura up. While on the aura, undead units will turn purple and receive
constant damage. When a Arch Magi is killed, a part of the aura will
dissapear. When you kill Antonidas, the rest of the aura will dissapear,
and the mission will end.

You get to (finally) train abominations on this level. There is a goblin
merchant to the east, and a level 6 Archmage to the west, who will give you
a Health Stone ones you kill it. The crates near the ruined town will give
you a Scroll of Mana.

The First Arch Mage is just near the entrance to Dalaran. Jump at him
with a few Abominations, and nuke him with Arthas and Kel' Thuzad. Make
sure to kill the Priests first, and he shall fall rather easily. He's
level 3. You may now sent a full out assault at the light blue base,
which will wreck you if you let them. Use Abominations, both heroes
and a few Meat Wagons. You can even build a new base here, though you
won't be able to use the possessed peasants to build up anything (it
would make the mission ridiculously easy).

Nearby are two cages guarded by a few humans. Defeat them and destroy the
gates to release two golems. These units are particulary useful because they
are not affected by the aura. Conversely, you can use Banshees to possess
enemy units to use them as assault teams.

The next Archmage can be taken out in a variety of ways. The easier (But
definitely longer and annoying) is to take out the guards just north of
your position, then use the Golems to throw boulders at the Archmage.
He's level 6, and this way you can take him out without casualties.
Otherwise, you will have to go all the way around using Abominations and the
two heroes to engage him in battle. He's rather difficult, but it's still
easy to kill. Using the long way will also pit you against Water Elementals
and towers. At some point here you will find a cage with a Ogre Mage, who
can cast Bloodlust.

The next target is the blue base, which is a pain in the ass to take out.
They have two Archmagi, one at level 1 (which will rise in levels
accordingly), and a level 8 one which is quite annoying.Try to form a meat
shield with Abominations and use Unholy Frenzy to turn them on. Take out
Priests and Sorceress first, and make sure the level 8 Archmage is down
the second you see him. Once you take out that base, you're free to take
out the final Archmage, Antonidas himself, who's level 10. You can free
two Drakes and four Spiders to help you, and you will need it, since he's
mighty tough to crack. Fortunately, you can nail him down with Death Coil
and Frost Nova and he will die soon, and the mission will be finished.

Try to ignore the last base, as it is obsenely difficult to destroy.

An hour later, a hill overlooking Dalaran...

MAIN QUESTS: ARCHIMONDE
		 - Kel'thuzad must survive for 30 minutes

OPTIONAL   : GOBLIN LAND MINES
QUESTS       - Acquire the Goblin Land Mines

ITEMS FOUND: Ring of protection +5
		 Tome of Strenght +2
		 Goblin Land Mines
		 Scepter of Mastery
		 Medal of Courage

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 8 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES       Crypt Fiend x6
		 Abominations x2
		 Ghoul x4
		 Acolyte x8
		 Necromancer
		 Shade x4

Did you thought the last mission was difficult? Welcome to Hell, buddy,
this one is, without a trace of doubt, the toughest mission in the game.
Your objective is to keep Kel'thuzad alive for thirty minutes against
the constant attacks by the humans. It's a lot tougher than what it
sounds.

Start by building many, but MANY towers. You can always have another
one. Also, move the Acolytes standing by the towers away so they won't
be hurt by the Griphons. Also, take Arthas and a few Crypt Fiends to
the middle of the map. There you will find a level 8 Archmage who will
left a Ring of Protection +5 (!) and a Tome of Strenght +2.

Now, while the deal is to survive (and that is hard enough), you can try
to get two very powerful items. They are in a magical vault in the
top right corner, but it's certainly difficult to get there.

The main idea is to build many, but many many towers, and use Crypt Fiends
and Necromancers to defend. Every six or so minutes you will be given
Burning Legion units (Fel Hounds or Infernals), so be sure to catch them.
In the last minute, all of the human units will attack you. You can use
Land Mines here to give yourself a little breathing room. You can also
try to raze all oppossing bases, but that will be also quite difficult,
and perhaps is simply a lot more fun to defend :)

When the timer is out, if Kel'Thuzad is alive, the Undead Campaign is
over.

| THE INVASION OF KALIMDOR |
|__________________________|

The third Campaign stars the Orcs after their escape from Lordaeron and
their accidented arrival at Kalimdor, the deserted continent. Overall
not as difficult as the previous campaign but still challenging. Kinda
repetitive, though. The first missions could have been a lot more interesting.

11.4.1.-

|          |
| LANDFALL |
|__________|

Following the mysterious prophet's instructions, Thrall led the Horde across
the Great Sea.  Now, after weeks of traversing the raging seas, the Orcish
Horde has landed upon the savage shores of Kalimdor.  With their stolen ships
broken and drowned, the Orcs cautiously venture inland, wary of the unseen
dangers lurking within the crags of the desolate land.

MAIN QUESTS: RALLY THE HORDE
		 - Discover where the other ships have landed
		 - Thrall must survive

		 PROTECT CAIRNE
		 - Follow Cairne to the Tauren village
		 - Protect Cairne from his enemies
		 - Cairne Bloodhoof must survive
		 - Thrall must survive.


OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Mana x3
  		 Healing Wards x2
		 Scroll of Protection
		 Ring of Protection +1
		 Scroll of the Beast

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 1 Far Seer hero)
FORCES       Grunt x2
		 Headhunter x2

As a quick tip, smash every crate you see for valuable items.

Start by going north, where you will find a few creeps. By going southeast from
their position, you will find a few more crates guarded by two dragon
hatchlings, one of the crates contains a Ring of Protection +1. Continue your
way north for more creeps and then east, where you will meet some Quillboars.
From there, go south until you find even more Quillboars, and rescue a few
units. You will find every once in a while a few centaurs attacking a Tauren,
don't try to save them. Just focus on killing the Centaurs.

To the east you will meet a few more troops. From there to the north, there
are three ways, one contains three harpies which will net a Scroll of the Beast,
the middle one has two lizards, and the third contains a few Quillbears and the
way to go.

Continue and you will see a band of Centaurs marching north. Ignore them. Go
forth and you will find a Foutain of Health, and more troops. Later, you will
meet Cairne, and you will be given the PROTECT CAIRNE quest, which will
require you to follow Cairne and protect the Tauren Village. If Cairne
falls, you're screwed. It's fairly easy. Concentrate on killing the
Centaurs and Cairne will defend himself. As soon as the fourth wave, which
includes a level 5 Centaur Champion, ends, you'll win.

Two days later, upon the desolate plains of the Barrens.

MAIN QUESTS: THREE OASIS
		 - Lead the caravan to the first oasis
		 - Lead the caravan to the second oasis
		 - Lead the caravan to the third oasis
		 - Thrall, Cairne and the caravan must survive.

		 THE CARAVAN
		 - Protect the caravan
		 - At least two Kodo Beasts must survive
		 - Cairne must survive
		 - Thrall must survive


OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Mana x3
		 Potion of Greater Mana x2
		 Scroll of Healing x2
		 Ancient Figurine
		 Mantle of Intelligence +3

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 2 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES       Grunt x3
		 Headhunter x4

You must lead Cairne and his caravan of cows (sorry, Tauren) to
the three Oasis marked on the automap. Like the previous stage, this one
is also a long and slow scenary. I personally dislike this stage because
the AI used for the caravan is incredibly annoying. For some reason,
this reminded me of my arguments with Boddyknock, the Sorceror from
Neverwinter Nights, screaming at the computer monitor to the Goddamn
character to move his ass out of the way.

Anyway, The Caravan will only move following your lead, and if the
Kodo Beasts give a damn and form a line. That's the rule on this stage.

To start, head west. You will find a few centaurs, and continue going
east, and then in the end north. You will have to deal with several annoying
centaur casters, but they won't be that difficult to take out. Be sure
to protect your Trolls, as they are very vulnerable. On that little
village, you will find a couple items.

The Caravan will be taken on from behind on several ocasions. While you
can trust on Cairne and the Tauren to hold their own, don't leave them
alone. Eventually they will be overwhelmed. Keep walking and fending off
Centaurs until you find the first oasis, and three Grunts will join you.

Rest, and now go on to the west again. More Centaurs and a few Harpies
(be sure to destroy the Harpy Nest for an intelligence item), and
a Goblin shop, where three Wolf Raiders will join your army. Now go
north until the next Oasis. Use your Raiders' ensnare ability to take
down annoying fliers. On the second Oasis you will find get three
Catapults.

Using the Catapults, take down the towers on the next section, and
use Thrall and the Headhunters to defend them from a distance.
Eventually you will reach a few more Centaurs led by a Khan, which
will reincarnate once killed. It's just a matter of killing him again,
and you will reach the third and final Oasis.

Five Days later, near the foothills of the Stonetalon Mountains...

MAIN QUESTS: ESTABLISH A BASE
		 - Build a Great Hall
		 - Thrall must survive

		 SECURE ZEPPELINS
		 - Destroy all hostile units at the lab
		 - Return two Goblin Zeppelins to your base

OPTIONAL   : PACIFY HUMANS
QUESTS       - Destroy all human bases (!)

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of healing
		 Scroll of healing
		 Gauntlets of Ogre Strenght +3
		 Circlet of Nobility

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 3 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES       Grunt x2
		 Wolf Raiders x2
		 Peon x4
		 Kodo Beast

This map is pretty easy so long as you keep an strong defense, as the
attacks themselves are quite easy. At the start, build a Great Hall
after you find Grom Hellscream. Start establishing your base, and eventually
Grom will send out an attack despite Thrall's orders. This will trigger the
optional quest PACIFY HUMANS, and the main quest SECURE ZEPPELINS in that
order.

All human base are virtually defenseless, but they do have some wild heroes:
The gray one has a level 6 (!¡) Mountain King, the light blue one has a
level 4 Paladin, and the blue has a level 4 Archmage. Fortunately, the
green one doesn't has anything.

Establish a tight defense with towers, and then go right to attack the
light blue base. A few catapults and lots of Grunts will secure victory.
Just be sure to take down the Altar quickly, as the Paladin can get annoying.

The attack on the blue one (which is the only one which is actually needed
to be destroyed in order to finish the mission), can be launched
from the light blue base location or from your main base itself. Either
side is equal, but the light blue one is slightly less defended. Again,
lots of Grunts and a few catapults will be required.

The other two bases are available to be taken down in order to finish
the optional quest, but not for the main quest. Anyway, the green one
is very easy to destroy as they have no heroes, but the gray one has
a very powerful Mountain King. If you wish to finish that quest,
include some Headhunters in your line up, and try to coordinate
the attack with Grom's forces, as it will make it a lot easier.

Once the blue base is down, send a large strike force with Headhunters
and Grom to attack the passage north of the blue base. You will find
a Centaur Khan which will require some use of brute force to kill.
Finally, you will find the Goblin laboratory, guarded by a group
of Harpies. Use Grom's Lightning Bolt to kill them. Once killed,
buy two Zeppelins and send 'em to the base. Mission accomplished.

Two days later, along the borderlands of Ashenvale forest.

MAIN QUESTS: SLASH AND BURN
		 - Amass 15,00 lumber
		 - Grom Hellscream must survive

OPTIONAL   : FURBOLG CHIEFTAIN
QUESTS       - Slay the Furbolg Chieftain

		 DESTROY TREE OF LIFES
		 - Destroy all Tree of Lifes

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Restoration
		 Potion of Greater Healing
		 Health Stone

STARTING   : Grom Hellscream (Level 5 Blademaster Hero)
FORCES       Grunt x1
		 Wolf Raiders x3
		 Peon x6
             Shaman x2

At the start, wait 'till your peons opened a path northwest. Send your
forces there to meet the welcome party from the Night Elves. Now, go
north and you will find a mine to start your base, and three Hypogriph
Riders. Use your Wolf Raiders to ensnare them and kill them.

To the east is a little goblin, named Greedy Needlock. This will trigger
the FURBOLG CHIEFTAIN optional quest, which will reward you with two
Goblin Shredders, which will make this stage a lot easier. You need to
deal with a full compliment of Furbolgs on the west of the map, be sure
to have a lot of Trolls as high level furbolgs have Rejuvenation and
Roar.

To the south of your new position is an small Night Elves camp. Destroy
the Trree of Life and you will receive the TREE OF LIFES optional quest,
which is a pain in the ass. This requires you to attack four different Night
Elves camps in order to deal with Tree of Lifes or its upgrades, and
receive plenty of lumber. All of these bases are surrounding your position,
and are quite difficult to destroy, be sure to attack with plenty of
Grunts and Catapults. You do not need to destroy the bases, just the
Trees.

By the time you destroy the last tree, the shredders should have collected
enough lumber. Mission accomplished. Not the most impressive mission ever.

MAIN QUESTS: THE CHAOS WELL

		CENARIOUS
		- Destroy Cenarious

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Fire Orb
		 Claws of Attack +9
		 Anti-Magic Potion
		 Ring of Protection +3
             Potion of Greater Healing
		 Periapt of Health

STARTING   : Grom Hellscream (Level 6 Blademaster Hero)
FORCES       Peon x9
             Shaman x1
		 Witch Doctor x2
		 Headhunter x2

As soon as you start, on the base where Grom is settled, start
building towers, Headhunters and a few grunts. Cenarious will
appear and decimate all of your surrounding bases, and establish
his own forces there. He will eventually attack your main base,
but you should be able to stop him rather easily. If you fail, try
again but with Raiders instead of Headhunters.

Once he calms the hell down, rebuild your base.

Cenarious is a level 10 beefed up Keeper of the Groove with 4000 HP
of health and a massive damage output. He also has divine armor type,
meaning anything will deal 1 damage to him unless it has Chaos attack
type (which Cenarious posseses, as well). A minute or so after the
attack, a Witchdoctor will give you THE CHAOS WELL quest.

Take a catapult, a few grunts and shamans, and Grom Hellscream north,
to a marked spot with a few trees nearby. Take down the trees and
send the strike force there, and deal with the Furbolgs (four regular
(lvl 4), two shamans (4), two trackers (6), an elder shaman (7) and
a single Ursa, level 8). The Ursa will prove to be a big obstacle,
though the catapult can wear it down. Continue west, and you will
have to deal with a few Satyrs. Heal and reinforce before heading
the Waygate.

More Satyrs. However, there will be a time when you will meet a lonely
level 9 Pyromancer, which will summon four Fire Archers (level 3),
which will cause some troubles. Use Grom's ultimate ability to take
care of the Satyr and let your grunts eat the skeletons.

Go north, kill the skeletons, and now east. You will be greeted by a group
of Satyrs led by an annoying Hellcaller (level 8). Once killed, you
will be granted Chaos Orc units, which are all Chaos damage able, and
are considerably stronger than the regular orcs.

You can also build warlocks, which aren't very special, but, eh.

With 'em, you can kill Cenarious. He will appear once you attack
succesfully a Night Elf encampment. Use a group of Grunts supported by
Warlocks and Kodo Beasts to attack either camp. Use your Warlocks to
stun with the Fireball the opposing flyers.

When Cenarious come down, forget about everything and nail the thing.
He's ridiculously hard and strong, so keep pounding. As soon as he's dead,
your mission is completed.

OPTIONAL   : WYVERNS
QUESTS       - Find the Wyverns
		 - Save The Wyverns

		 DEFILED FOUNTAIN
		 - Kill Centaur Khan
		 - Return the Glyph of Purification to restore the fountain

ITEMS FOUND: Periapt of Vitality
		 Health Stone
		 Glyph of Purification
		 Pendant of Mana
		 Potion of Mana
		 Scroll of Protection

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 6 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES       Cairne Bloodhoof (Level 6 Tauren Chieftain Hero)
		 Peon x5
             Witch Doctor x1
		 Headhunter x2
		 Grunt x1
		 Wolf Raider x1
		 Tauren x2

Now you can build Taurens, which will be very useful for the optional
quests. At the start of the mission, you will receive the WYVERNS OPTIONAL
QUEST. Just to the west of your base, is a defiled foutain, which will
trigger the DEFILED FOUNTAIN OPTIONAL QUEST, after killing 4 level 2
lizards and two leve 6 thunder lizards..

The DEFILED FOUNTAIN is the easiest, though it isn't simple. You need to
go directly north from your base, devastating hordes of level 4 Centaurs.
Importantly, there is a goblin lab in there which you can use to buy
Zeppelins. Further north, there are more centaurs (Outrunners and Impalers),
level 4 and 5, which won't be that much of a challenge, be sure to bring
plenty of grunts.

Norhteast is where the Centaur Khan is located. He's still very tough to
take down, though this time around you should have much more to show him.
He still resurrects, as well. When killed, he will drop the Glyph of
Purification, which you can bring to restore the fountain, which will
turn into a regular Fountain of Health. That completes the DEFILED
FOUNTAIN OPTIONAL QUEST.

The other quest is a bit more annoying. Bring 8 or so Headhunters, plus
your two heroes. On the way west, you will find Razorman Brutes (level 3)
a Medic (level 5) and a Chieftain (level 7). Kill them all to advance.
Afterwards, you will meet some Harpies, level 4, 5 and 6 (The Queen is
level 6 only). They can be really difficult as they have a variety of
curse spells at their dispossal, and their numbers are great. Cairne's
Aura should provide a good help as well as Thrall's Chain Lightning. The
Queen is also pretty annoying, but she should fall easily if you have
enough units. You will complete the WYVERNS OPTIONAL QUEST, and
receive several Wyverns. You can also build your own Wyverns. Destroy
the harpies' nest to receive an item, as well.

Now, with the optional quests out of the picture, you're free to
finish the actual mission. There are two human bases. The Grey one
will eventually attack you with small groups, and eventually with
the hero, a level 6 Archmage. Despite that, you can set up an
small defense, and forget about them. The blue one is the one
you need to destroy. It is directly north of your base, inaccessable
by land, you'll need a few Zeppelins to get there.

Set up 12 or so Wyverns, and get a few Shamans, Catapults, and either
Thrall or Cairne (Leave the other at the base to defend it). Using the
Wyverns, attract the attention of the gryphons flying around, and kill
them with concentrated firepower. You can safely land your land troops
on the southside of the base. Advance slowly but surely using your catapults
to destroy buildings and the hero and the shamans to protect them.

You can always bring reinforcements. The Gryphons should fall to your
more versatile Wyverns. When the base is razed, the mission has ended.

		 Tome of Intelligence x2
		 Blood Key
		 Crown of Kings +5
		 Sobi Mask

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 7 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES       Cairne Bloodhoof (Level 7 Tauren Chieftain Hero)
             Witch Doctor x1 ---> Thrall's group
		 Grunt x2 ----------> Thrall's group
		 Wolf Raider x2 ----> Thrall's group
		 Shaman x1 ---------> Thrall's group
		 Tauren x3----------> Cairne's group

You will begin controlling Thrall and his group. Destroy all crates
you see, many contain valuable stuff. Furthermore, there are plenty of
creeps around. Be careful with them, and make sure to heal with your
Witch Doctor.

Begin by heading west, killing creeps, and follow the road until you're
given choice by goind north or south. North is a cell with a Mantle
of Intelligence +3. South is the way to go. Go forth, smash the crates
(Be careful, one will net you an item *and* a level 6 wraith). When the path
forks, go first south, and kill the level 3 Fire Revenant, and bust open
the crates for more items. Now, go north, and kill the creeps there
(The big revenant gives a very cool Orb of Fire), and, before continuing,
follow the west path. You will find another item.

Now, go east, and face the enemies. There will be a bigass skeleton. From
there, go south and kill the Salamander. It protects the Blood Key, which
opens the door to the tresuary, where there are various items, including
a Crown of Kings +5. Now, go east and follow the waygate.

You will find a few peasants which will take on arms against you. Nail
them with a Chain lightning before they turn into footman for an easier
time.

The next Rooms will find you going east and finding a jail. Out of the
first cell a level 5 Kobold Taskmaster will attack. Out of the second,
three Headhunters will join you. The third one hides a very tough
level 10 Salamander Lord, which drops a Sobi Mask. Continue the road,
and you will find several sheeps. After a funny remark, two human
Sorceress will lead an ambush. Kill them all. Now, go left to rescue
a few headhunters and fin another scroll of resurrection.

Now, go north from where you found the human party, and you will see
a dragon fighting off a bunch of harpies. Watch out, and wait until one
side wins, and kill the rest. You will acquire the Heart of Aszune.

Go into the waygate to the north and from where you appear go south.
Aszune, the Priestess of the Moon with the Wrong Weapon will let you
pass. From here on, it's up to Cairne.

Who you have to control, of course.

Cairne's part is noticeably more difficult, though it's also shorter.
Drive him southwest to kill some creeps and find some more potions.
Now go southeast, where you will find some ill-fated humans. Don't
mind them. Keep going south and then right, You will see some more
kobolds, and Cairne will note that they are guarding the gemstome.

There is a nearby circle of power which will kill them instantly, but
if you actually kill them in combat, they will drop a Talisman of
Magic Immunity. But, thing is, they are quite difficult to kill. Your
choice.

Either way, you also have to head north, and you will find antoher circle
of power which will open the gates. Proved the Kobolds are dead, you
will find the Enchanted Gemstome you need for Thrall. Collect it, and
head east. You will need to kill a few more Kobolds, a toughie Salamander
Lord (Which is a lot easier with Cairne), and after you cross the lava,
two Level 6 War Golems will atack you. Further to the right, a level
9 Siege Golem will appear as well. It will drop the Ghost Key you need
to open the door to find Thrall. Give the Gemstome to the pilar, and
the mission will end.

Shocked already?

MAIN QUESTS: HELLSCREAM
		 - Capture Grom in the Soul Gem
		 - Bring Grom to Jaina's Ritual Circle

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of Mana
		 Medallion of Courage
		 Potion of Healing

STARTING   : Thrall (Level 8 Far Seer Hero)
FORCES       Cairne Bloodhoof (Level 8 Tauren Chieftain Hero)
		 Peon x8
             Witch Doctor x1
		 Headhunter x3
		 Grunt x3
		 Shaman x1

This is a very difficult mission. You have to go directly to the
farthest point of the Chaos Orc's base, raze it to the ground, and then
capture Grom. If that isn't difficult enough, every few minutes, a couple
infernals will land at random parts of the map and attack your base.

You have Jaina's help on this mission (As useless as she can be).

You should start setting up a tight defense around all your base, with
Grunts and Towers en masse. Then, set up a group with Cairne or Thrall
(leave one at your base), and start creeping around. Have a couple catapults
if you spot one of the many enemy encampments, which are tough to take
down.  Once the map is free of enemy forces (save the two northernmost
bases), you can start planning an offensive.

Remember the Infernals. They are very dangerous.

There are several camps just south of Grom's Base. They hold a few orc
units hostage. Save them if you wish.

There is not much strategy involved on the siege on the main bases. Send
in catapults, Tauren and your heroes once your defense is complete. Start
by slowly taking out buildings. Send also a couple Witch Doctors for
easy healing. Don't rush in, that would kill you.

Once you take down the left base, go right. There, you will have to make it
even slower. Take down the base, and prepare to deal with Burning Legion
units. There are Doom Guards and Felhounds, and both are extremely damaging
units. Use your Taurens and Cairne to deal with them (no need for mana,
Felhounds can cast Mana Burn).

You have to use the Soul Gem to catch Grom. Once you do that, get the hell
out of there and go straight to the Ritual Circle. That will end the mission
and the episode.

OPTIONAL   : FURBOLG VILLAGE
QUESTS	 - Locate 10 missing Furbolgs

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of Protection
		 Potion of Healing
		 Healing Wards

STARTING   : Tyrande (Level 1 Priestess of the Moon Hero)
FORCES       Archer x1
		 Wisp x4

Pretty easy mission. At the start you will be given the NIGHT ELF
BASE MAIN QUEST, which is pretty straightforward this far. When
it's completed, the INVADERS MAIN QUEST will be granted. We will
solve that one later.

To the south is the Furbolg Village. There the Furbolg Shaman will
give you the FURBOLG VILLAGE OPTIONAL QUEST. Fair enough. these
are the locations:

- The first two Furbolgs are directly north of your base. Slightly
east of there are three Archers waiting for you to reclaim.

- Two more are southwest of your base location. Slightly west is a
human outpost with four footmen and a few items once you destroy
the tents.

- More southwest of there are two more. Don't wander into the
human and orc base unless you are prepared.

- Three more are north, captured by three Orc Wolf Raiders. You
will have to, um, kill them.

- Two more are northwest of there. You will have to kill the
two Orcish Wyverns around. There are several bases like that one
around, both human and orc. Join Greenpeace and kill them.

BTW, that makes eleven Furbolgs. Just in case you missed it. There
is a twelfth Furbolg directly south as well.

Return to the Furbolg Elder Shaman to receive your reward: Two
level 4 Furbolgs, and a level 7 Furbolg Champion, which is a
pretty heavy melee unit.

With these units, and 12 or so Archers, send Tyrande to assault
the human base. It's quite undefended, so muscle your way in
(One of the tents has Healing Wards for you), and 'duke' it
out with Duke Lionheart, a level 6 Paladin. When killed, the
mission ends.

STARTING   : Tyrande (Level 2 Priestess of the Moon Hero)
FORCES

Remember to keep hiding with Shadowmeld, and the mission will go on
smooth. You are no match for the dozens of Doom Guards around.

Up north are two Doom Guards. Evade them and grab the two items.
Go on south, and keep smashing the crates around for items and
evading the Doom Guards. If you're attacked, just hit 'i' to
escape. Be really careful, though. You can free a Furbolg
trapped in a cage. He will go on to engage the nearby Doom Guard,
and will leave then. It doesn't makes much, though, and you have
to kill the Doom Guard with his help. The Furbolg will simply
go back to its cage (?) later. You continue.

Go southwest. There you will find some troops and a few tents.
Destroy everything for another item. Go east and finish the
battle, and once again destroy the crates to get  Ring of
Superiority. Keep going east, and a big group of Orcs will attack
a big group of Undead. Once finished, grab the Mantle of Intelligence+3,
and go on forth.

You will receive some more troops after the Waygate.

The next section features Shades, which can see your Shadowmelded units
Evade the two Doom Guards, grab the items if you can. If you're gonna
do this, you might be better off sending units in small groups.

The next section features another shade and a few humans battling a Doom
Guard. Wait for the battle to end (Or avoid it altogether), and make
sure you grab the Tome of Strenght the Doom Guard drops. Continue through
the door to the northwest. More Troops.

Heal up at the fountain, and go east. You will find a Spirit Tower, destroy
it, and go forward. You will receive some Ballistae. More to the east is a
Fountain of Health where you will receive more reinforcmentes. The path you
saw earlier leads to some items (guarded by a spirit Tower and two Doom Guards)
and the second path is a tower-heavy base which will be torn apart by your
Ballistae. Up ahead is the Night elf town. Just guard your siege units,
and it should fall easily.

MAIN QUESTS: FURION STORMRAGE
		 - Reach Moonglade Isle behind the Orc Base
		 - Slay the Primal Guardians
		 - Bring Tyrande to the Horn of Cenarious
		 - Slumbering Furion Stormrage must survive

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Healing Wards
		 Boots of Speed
		 Jade Ring
		 Anti-Magic Potion

STARTING   : Tyrande (Level 3 Priestess of the Moon Hero)
FORCES       Archer x1
		 Huntress x2
		 Wisp x6

You will get three Dryads as soon as the mission start. You have 100
trees of time to get the horn of Cenarious. 25 or so minutes. You need
to tear down the Orc base, and kill 'em all to reach the Isle, decimate
the three Primal Guardians, and get the Horn before it happens.

It isn't possible to reach the Undead base, but they will probably attack
your from time to time. Not that you want to go there, Tichondrious (level
10!) is sitting there.

In the middle of the map is a group of Murloc Tiderunners (level 1) and
Nightcrawlers (level 3). You will get an item for destroying the hut,
and access to a Goblin shop.

The Orcish base is pretty easy to destroy. Assault with a few Ballistae,
and send in lots of Huntress to deal with other units. Keep Tyrande
around. There is a crate here with Healing Wards. try to attack early,
so they can't build more units. There is a level 5 Blademaster.

Go up north to face the Primal Guardians. First is the Fire Guardian,
which uses Inner Fire. It's pretty easy, but keep in mind it's level 6.
Some level 4 Owlbears will try to help it. Destroy the crates for a
Jade Ring.

Keep walking (There is a Fountain of Health), and smash the Ice
Guardian, which uses Frost Nova, and slows your units with its attack.
Two level 4 owlbears and a level 6 enraged one will attack you as well.
A crate north leaves an anti-magic potion.

Finally, the last one is the Lightning Guardian, which uses Lightning
Shield and Purgue (¿?). Two level 6 Enraged Owlbears, and a level 8
big one will attack you as well. Get the Horn, and finish the mission.

OPTIONAL   : CRAZED FURBOLGS
QUESTS	 - Kill the Furbolg Warlord

		 CURSED GLADE
		 - Kill the Death Revenant to restore the Forest

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Healing
		 Ironwood Branch
		 Potion of Mana
		 Claws of attack +6
		 Sobi Mask
 		 Ring of Protection +2

STARTING   : Tyrande (Level 4 Priestess of the Moon Hero)
FORCES       Furion (Level 4 Keeper of the Groove Hero)
		 Archer x3
		 Huntress x2
		 Wisp x5

NOTE: Furion comes equipped with the Horn of Cenarious.

This is another straight forward mission, though it's somewhat more
challengng. You need to reach the Barrow Dens, which are guarded by
a human base.

Start by building a heavy air defense. Though you cannot access those
bases (save via Force of Nature), the red orcs, the purple Undead and
the light blue humans will send in air units to attack your base.

The light blue base you can access is the one you need to destroy.
Northeast of your base is a defiled fountain with some Furbolgs. You
will have to kill them as they are corrupted. You will be given
the CRAZED FURBOLGS OPTIONAL QUEST, which live north of here. You will
have to deal with five level 4 Furbolgs, three level 7 Elder Shaman,
a level 6 tracker and a level 9 Warlord. Kill this one to receive a
Claws of Attack +6, and there is a Potion of Mana on a crate nearby.

Now go east, and attack the human base. 12 Huntress and a couple
Archers plus your heroes should do the trick, as it's pretty much
undefended. There is a level 4 Paladin in there, but he won't cause
too much trouble. Raze the base and head south. Remember to keep up
your defense in town.

Get some reinforcements, and head south. This cursed forest features
a lot of Skeleton Archers (level 3?), Ghosts (level 4), Wraiths
(level 6), and your objective, a level 8 Death Revenant. He is located
in the lower right corner of the section. Charge with plenty of units,
this part could be difficult. To the southwest is a Storm Wyrm Lord,
behind some trees, which drops a Sobi Mask. The CURSED GLADE OPTIONAL
QUEST your received earlier will be completed.

Now, from there on, go north, where you will find a Corrupted Night
Elf base, with a lot of Satyrs and cursed Treants. There are one or
two Satyr Hellcallers (level 8) which are pretty tough and annoying.
Go with Ballistae and a full unit of Huntress. Get some Dryads as well.
Go slowly but surely, and finally, send Stormrage to the goal. Mission
accomplished.

Another maze map. Oh joy. You know what's annoying about these? The
ammount of items I have to find to write 'em down. Damn.

NOTE: The mushrooms are, technically, trees. You can use them
for Furion's Force of Nature spell.

Anyway, Go east. There are some Kobolds, kill them for a Potion
of Healing. West, some Wendigoes. They drop a Scroll of Healing. Now
go south to continue, killing spiders. Your biggest concern will
be the two Brood Mothers, level 6, who will leave small spiders when
killed.

Further southwest, you will face a few undead enemies, who will leave a
potion of Greater Healing and a Wand of Lightning Shell. Go west, and
you will find a Giant Spider, kill it for a Spider ring, and go round
to the other side of the ice blockade, where there are some more
spiders, and some eggs: one of those holds an item.

(Here is a notorious easter egg. Check section 12 for that.)

Going south, you will meet some Furbolgs, who will give you the
BEAR NECESSITIES OPTIONAL QUEST. You will also receive an empty vial.
Grab it, and go northwest, through the lower path (BUT GOING NORTHWEST!,
going south when the path forks will have you continuing the mission
and not ending the quest!). Fight the Lizards, and reach the Fountain
of Life. That will fill the vial. Hand the Full Vial to the to Furbolgs,
and you will receive 3 Talisman of the Wild. Nifty, for what easy is
this quest.

Now, go south from where the Fountain of Life.

From this part on, You will have only Furion and whatever Dryads and
Druids of the Claw you have left. Go east, killing creeps, and when
you see a group of mushrooms, use FoN and get in there. Killing
the undead will net you a Scroll of Healing. South of the mushrooms,
are more mushrooms which can lead you to a circle of power
which takes you to a hidden area with more undead and a Robe of the
Magi +6

Now go back to the circle of power (north are some Kobolds, but they
drop nothing), cross the bridge, and go forth. Three level 4 Owlbears
will attack and drop a claw of attack +9

Go north, kill the dragon whelps. You will find the druids, but they
are not friendly. Keep going north (use cyclone and entangling roots to
keep the druids from attacking). You will find some spiders and Sludges,
and they will attack you. You MUST NOT kill any druid of the claw, but
the other creeps, can be easily killed without any problem.

Run to the circle, destroying the gates, and that part of the mission is
over. Now, go on with Tyrande.

Tyrande has to free Illidan. This is fairly straightforward as there is no
obvious branchs involved. You need to first find two different Circle of
Power. It's pretty much obvious where have to go. Defeat all the enemies,
enter both circles to continue. To the south of where you start, however,
is a tome of knowledge.

Go on after the door opens, be sure to check all the rooms. Some hold
interesting stuff. Follow the road until the Waygate.

From the Waygate, go down 'till you find the Land Mines. With them,
you can pass the walking Owlbears easily. To the north is a weak
Keeper of the Grove (Califax), and some enemies. There you can free Illidan
and finish the mission.

STARTING   : Illidan (Level 7 Demon Hunter Hero)
FORCES       Archer x2
		 Huntress x2
		 Druid of the Claw x2
		 Wisp x9

Wow, lots of *interesting* items. Too bad you won't get to keep them.

This map isn't very difficult, though it's time consuming. Getting
all those items take ages of blasting through spider eggs. There
are many creeps as well, and two Corrupted Ancients' bases, plus
Tichondrious small settlement.

Build up your defenses as soon as the mission starts. Some Satyrs
will attack your base and taunt you.

Your main objective is to destroy the top right base. There lies
the Skull of Gul'dan. Drop several Ballistae, plenty of Huntress and
a few Druids of the Claw, plus Illidan himself, and the base should
fall in no time. Be careful of the disease aura some Corrupted Treants
carry. The base also contains six Doom Guards, two Infernals and a few
Felhounds. The Doom Guards are *extremely* dangerous. Use the Ballistae
to wear them down, and be careful with their spells. The Infernals
aren't that difficult this far, and Illidan is an extremely competent
hero.

Destroy the Demon Gate to stop the new Burning Legion units flow, and
you will get the Skull. Illidan will turn into a permanent metamorphed
level 10 Demon Hunter.

Now you need to take down Tichondrious. Send in lots of Dryads to deal
with the Infernals and some Huntress to deal with the Doom Guards.
Only Illidan can hurt Tichondrious (AND ONLY ILLIDAN ON DEMON FORM!,
NO USE COMING BEFORE GETTING THE SKULL!), so send him one on one
with Tichondrious. Use Mana Burn and Immolation. He should fall
rather easily, though he is indeed mighty. A couple of Potions of Health
should help a lot.

MAIN QUESTS: DELAY ARCHIMONDE
		 - Delay Archimonde for 45 minutes
		 - Archimonde must not reach the mountain summit

OPTIONAL   : None
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of Mana
		 Potion of Greater Healing

STARTING   : Tyrande (Level 6 Priestess of the Moon Hero)
FORCES       Furion (Level 6 Keeper of the Groove Hero)
		 Archer x2
		 Huntress x2
		 Druid of the Claw x2
		 Hypogriff Rider x2

		 Shandris*
------------------------------------------
*Shandris is a slightly buffed up Archer with the Ranger model. If
she dies, she can't be resurrected as she's not a hero. Her fate doesn't
makes any difference to the game.

This is a defense map. You need to stop Archimonde from reaching the summit.
This is made by defending the three bases for 45 minutes.

Start by building a few Ancient Protectors at the human base and move all of
your units there. Build up Dryads and Huntress and send them there. That
should be enough to hold off the Burning Legion for 20 or so minutes.
Keep building more and more units and replace them. The Human Base will
eventually fall (probably around 20 minutes from the start), as they will
send out undead heroes and Pit Lords, which are by themselves terrible to
face. They have Resurrection and the ridiculous damage output, paired with
the dozens of undead units on their rear is incredibly difficult to deal
with.

Starfall and Tranquility will prove invaluable here.

The undead base is way too difficult to destroy. They take little to no
time to build units and Archimonde (level 10 warlock with divine armor
and chaos damage) is at the entrance, guarding it.

Once any of your allies' base falls, the undead will unsummon their previous
base and build another one. If you destroy the Orc base, though, they will
build a base there (with the "Third and Final Base" message), and leave
their first base there. This can make for some interesting strategies, though
Archimonde may choose to go to the Orc location, destroying anything on its
path, so don't count on this.

The first three waves will be Ghouls, Crypt Fiends, Meat Wagons. Then Doom
Guards, Fel Hounds and banshees will join the fun. From the fifth wave or
so (earlier on hard mode), Heroes will join in. Liches, Dreadlords and Pit Lords.
Infernals, Frost Wyrms, Gargoyles and Abominations will join later.

At some point, the Pit Lord will attack *alongside* the Lich. This is very
difficult. Use Cyclone to keep 'em apart.

The orc Base will last a lot more than the Human one. Drop Druids of the
Claw to help the Orcs and Archers to deal with fliers. When 30 seconds are left,
Archimonde will rush to the summit. Throw everything you got at him to slow
him down, he can't walk if he's attacking! Once the time is up, you've won.

who has the ability to see ghost. Said by the child.


UNLIMITED MANA	: thereisnospoon

"The Matrix", Keanu Reaves' ultra-famous movie. The first one. I
doubt anyone has yet to see that movie, but it's about a cyber-punk
theory that the whole world is a computer program. Said
by a child on the Prophet's sequence, explaining he can bend the
spoons because they don't actually exist. They are part of the
program.

EXTRA GOLD		: keysersoze # type the ammount of gold you want.

"Ussual Suspects", Kevin Spacek's movie, the name of the guy the main
character blames for the death of all the others. I can't really
comment on the movie without spoiling the whole damn thing.

ITEMS

Several items (such as the claws of attack) look like items from the
Marvel comics series. Such claws of attack look like Wolverine's
claws, from the X-Men comic book.

ITEMS - WIRT's LEG:

(I know this item is found in the campaign, but I can't recall
where exactly. Any help?)

"Could it be that a portal opened up and expelled the remains of our
dearest pal from the world of Diablo to here? If so, was it a player,
or a Demon? Just how many worlds have the Burning Legion conquered?
Could the Demons of the Burning Legion and those of Sanctuary be one and
the same? The mind w(*INCOMPLETE ON THE WORLD EDITOR*)"

Wirt's was a character from Diablo II, who complained that the had lost
his leg. Guess it's here where it ended. Useless. Worth noting is the
flavor text for Wirt's Other Leg, from the Frozen Throne (and a lot easier
to find that this one).

"Perhaps the overzealous adventurer pried this off before his journey
here thinking it might give him one last opportunity at bovine slaughter.
Little did he know where it would lead him."

Which reffers to the secret cow level in Diablo II, a really
demented place with armed cows attacking the player.

CREDITS (from the main menu)

Once you finish the game, you will see Hydralisks coming from the cave and
fight the units walking around.

CREDITS & OUTAKES

The whole ending is a damn easter egg! The first section is a reenactment of
the intro for WARCRAFT II: The Tides of Darkness. It even features the same
music, though it is lacking the speech.

The second section is also a cutscene of the second game. Furthermore, the
director screams "THE GOOGLES! THEY DO NOTHING", which is a fad play on a
line said by Homer of the tv show THE SIMPSONS.

The third section is a joke on Arthas Haircut and how he looks like a heavy
metal singer. Go figure. The joke goes on by Frozen Throne.

The fourth section is another joke, though there is something that seemed
weird: When the paladin appears, there is a very fast figure flying through
the left side of the screen. Any comments?

The fifth section is also a joke. The sixth however, if you finish the game
on hard, will show a group of Space Marines from Starcraft duking it out
with Zerglings and Hydralisks from the same game. They will kill the Zerg,
and a group of Chaos Space Orcs (orcs on red space suits, armed with
flamethrowers) will come and battle. At the end, a sheep
will come and explode, killing the survivors. This is probably a joke about
the strategy game WORMS, which features a weapon which is an exploding sheep
among many exotic pieces of weaponry.

NIGHT ELF UNITS: DEMON HUNTER

Watch the Demon Hunter's weapons closely. It's a panda! Also watch his death
sequence: he kills himself as he dies.

NIGHT ELF UNITS: BALLISTAE

The name of the Ballista upgrade, Vorpal Blade, is taken from the name
of the sword used to kill the Jabberwock in the poem The Jabberwocky,
from Through the Looking Glass, the second Alice book, from Lewis Carroll.

UNDEAD UNITS: DEATH KNIGHT

Lord Perenolde, one of the Death Knight's possible names, was the name of
the leader of a human nation in WC II, Alterac.

EDITOR

If you watch the tooltips for the wandering animals (sheeps, stags and the such)
it says "Invoke the power of the *name of animal* to save you". If you find
the Flying sheep one, it says "Invoke the power of the Uber Sheep to save you".
("Uber" is german for "Super". It's common for video game players to use that
as a substitute for "Super", like using "Pwned" for "owned")

PROLOGUE: MISSION I - CHASING VISIONS -

Type iseedeadpeople or use Thrall's Farsight ability to watch the north
center region of the map. You will see two "Scurvy Pirates" guarding the
"Phat Lewt" (Fat Loot). Do it at the day, as they shadowmeld.

PROLOGUE: MISSION III - RIDERS ON THE STORM -

(Only on the demo or the Frozen Throne XP) "Riders of the storm" is one
of the most famous The Door's songs. There is a small (huge) grammatical
discordance but I'm sure it's the same.

PROLOGUE: MISSION V - COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION -

(Only on the demo or the Frozen Throne XP) "Countdown to Extinction" is
a Megadeth song (or album, I'm not sure).

EPISODE 1: MISSION II - BLACKROCK AND ROLL TOO! -

Watch for the "UNLUCKY FOOTMEN" in a cutscene.

EPISODE 1: MISSION IV - CULT OF THE DAMNED -

You can save Timmy in the first mission of the episode, however, he's
doomed to be a running gag among developers.

After you first speak with Kel'Thuzad, look around for a cage, destroy
it, and you will find Timmy, who's been turned into a ghoul. Poor kid.
Kill him to end his torment and get a Ring of Superiority. Look for
Timmy in the Frozen Throne as well.

EPISODE 1: MISSION VI - THE CULLING -

To the right of the map are a few cages, one containing a rat named Filson
the Rat. You cannot kill it, but you can click on it until it explodes.
It leaves a Talisman of Evasion.

EPISODE 1: MISSION VIII - DISSENSION -

In the center of the map is a lonely Panderan (level 4). Kill it for a Pendant
of mana.

EPISODE 2: MISSION I - TRUDGING THROUGH THE ASHES -

There are two villagers fighting, named Robert and Tyler, from the movie
FIGHT CLUB.

Furthermore, there is a building with a sign "BOB'S GUNS", a reference
to a Starcraft doodad on the asphalt tileset.

EPISODE 2: MISSION II - DIGGIN' UP THE DEAD -

West of the human green base, knock down the trees. You will see a waterfall.
Send a unit to watch a flash of a baby panda sitting on the shoulders of a
big Panda (We would come to learn it's a hero from the expansion, a Pandaren
Brewmaster), and a message "SECRET FOUND Pandaren Relaxation Area". This
is a reference to the Pandaren race used on a April's Fool Joke by Blizzard.

There is another, on the path leading to a Rogue Wizard, you can knockdown
some trees and watch a hilliarious cutscene dealing with Sasquatches planning
to take over the world. Right. Kill them to get  a Claw of Attack +6.

EPISODE 3: MISSION VII - THE ORACLE -

When you get to control Cairne, head south and you will reach a big
neutral salamander named Hungry Hungry Lizard (From the old game Hungry Hungry
Hippo). Let it eat the mushrooms until it explodes. It leads to a Lion Horn of
Stormwind, a valuable item.

EPISODE 4: MISSION I - ENEMIES AT THE GATES

In the closing cutscene, there is a... Panda! running around. Given Moonglade's
forest's wheather, there is no point in having a Panda around there. Another
sighting, I suppose.

EPISODE 4: MISSION II - SISTERS OF THE MOON

After you get the Ballistae, scout with Tyrande's ability the north region of
the part of the map you're around. You will see an strange neutral unit.
Use your Ballistae to destroy the trees, and claim it with Tyrande. It's
an Hydralisk, a unit from Starcraft, another RTS game developed by Blizzard.

It's stats are:

STATS: HP			: 700
	 Attack rating	: 84-120 (!)
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Fast

The Hydralisk will appear in the closing cutscene, if it's around.

EPISODE 4: MISSION III - THE AWAKENING OF STORMRAGE

I don't know if this is intentional or not, but whatever way you look at it,
the Horn of Cenarious looks remarkably similar to Kermit, the toad from the
Muppets. Probably an Easter Egg, since Kermit is also present on at least
one pissed quote ("it's not easy being green").Otherwise is just a crow head,
but it simply doesn't makes much sense.

NOTE FROM VERSION 1.9: I originally had "Rene" as the toad's name. It was
the name from the spanish version. A remarkable slip-up. Sorry. :)

EPISODE 4: MISSION V - BROTHERS IN BLOOD

There is an optional quest named "BEAR NECESSITIES". This is a song
performed by Baloo the Bear on the Disney movie "The Jungle Book".

When you find the spider lair (nearby the giant spider that drops a Spider
Ring), you might note a largue cluster of mushrooms. Open them up using
Furion Force of Nature, and you will find the Largest Panda Ever, a level
10 massive creep which drops a Necklace of Spell Immunity.

*****************************************************************************

13.- Version History.

This is an almost exact copy and paste version of the patch.txt file found
in your Warcraft III directory, which I am putting here for reference sakes.
Whatever editting I made will be marked with "NOTE FROM LORD ZERO:", which
will be more likely undocumented features. Most of the "WE" in there
are referred to Blizzard staff themselves, I had nothing to do with them :).

Another thing is, Replays won't load from major revisions (1.18-1.7),
unfortunately. I know of a user-made program which lets you download your
version to watch previous replay, but I've never found it. Any help?

PATCH 1.18

  units were drag-selected.

- Fixed a problem that allowed Magic Immune units to take Magical damage
  from missiles that were in flight as they became Magic Immune.
- Fixed a problem that caused Heroes holding items that increase their
  primary attribute to display an increase in their base damage on the
  info panel. Their actual damage was not affected.
- Fixed a problem with Metamorphosis that allowed the timer to remain
  active after the Hero had died.
- Fixed a problem with Goblin Zeppelins being considered Undead instead of
  Mechanical in custom maps.

  instant spells.

  interrupted by the morph timer expiring.

  to the next order when they moved underneath the fog.

- Fixed a problem with Envenomed Spears wearing off too early if the
  affected unit was also affected by Slow Poison.
- Fixed the invisibility transition time for levels 2 and 3 of Wind Walk.

  bonus from the Masonry upgrade.

  occasionally fail.
- Fixed channeling units so they will auto-queue orders issued to the entire
  selection except for Stop and Hide. Orders issued to the selected subgroup
  will break channeling (so you can teleport out of the area while
  channeling).

  auto-queue all orders until the spell is complete.
- Fixed observers so they now recieve notifications when ANY player's forces

- Fixed replay speeds so they can once again be changed while the replay

  transfer the unit upgrades to the new owner.

MAPS

PATCH 1.13b

FIXES

  hall instead of the location you clicked, as it previously did. This will

  spell lingers in the area permanently. This will be fixed in the 1.14

  drops from a game or shares unit control.

  "separation behavior" so air units will break out of clusters once they
  reach a destination.
- Upgrade & Research Complete alerts now include text messages that indicate
  which upgrade has just finished.
- Added player handicaps that allow players to limit their units' maximum hit
  points prior to a game starting.

  a few different build orders per race (mass casters, mass Gargoyles, etc.),

- Added the ability to see the inventory of the purchasing Hero when the shop
  is selected.

- A new resource indicator is displayed for players whose teammates leave in
  the middle of a game. The indicator appears in the top right corner of the
  screen and allows players to see the allied army's current resources.
- Players can now transfer resources to the allied army of a teammate who
  left the game.
- Tomes are now "powerups".  This means that if you right-click on them
  with a Hero selected, the Hero will now automatically use them rather than
  pick them up.
- In-game chat messages now display who will be the recipient(s)
  (All, Allies, a specific player, etc.).
- Buildings can now be assigned to a single hotkey and can be "tabbed" through
  similar to unit subgroups.
- Battle.net: Players can now search for AMM opponents while continuing to chat
  on Battle.net.

  while rallying new units.

  following. If the unit they are following goes into attack mode, they will
  drop into attack mode as well.
- A Hero channeling a spell will not stop casting the spell when a group
  containing this Hero is given a new command. The Hero must be individually
  selected in order to be given another command.
- Undead Acolytes and Night Elf Wisps that are rallied to an incomplete
  Entangled or Haunted Gold Mine will now automatically begin to mine once the
  structure is completed.

MAPS

- Gyrocopter damage increased to 27-32 from 25-30.
- Powerbuild effectiveness has been reduced to 60% of its previous strength
  in terms of how much speed additional Peasants add when supporting the
  construction of a building. Note that the cost increase per additional
  Peasant is unchanged.

Undead
- Shade speed increased to 350 from 270, but hit points reduced to 125
  from 250.

  180 to 240. Additionally, animated units are invulnerable, but can

  up from 1 second, and their damage has been reduced by 33% as well.
- Gargoyle attack versus air decreased to 1d11 + 43 from 1d13 + 50 to
  reflect new air pathing changes.
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: The Abominations' new Canibalize compatibility is
an undocumented change.

Orcs
- Wind Walk now has a cooldown of 5 seconds, costs 75 mana at all levels
  (changed from 100/75/25), and deals "backstab" damage. When a Blademaster
  attacks while using Wind Walk, he deals bonus damage to his victim.
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: This only applies to the first strike when leaving
the Wind Walk stat.
- Lightning Shield range increased to 600 from 500.
- Ensnare duration increased to 15 from 12, and range increased to 500
  from 400.
- Feral Spirit mana cost reduced to 75 from 100 and cooldown increased to
  25 from 15.

- Tauren Chieftain speed increased to 270 from 250.
- The Tauren Chieftain now has a smaller collision size: 32 down from 48.
  This means that he takes up less space on the ground.
- Wyvern hit points increased to 600 from 500.
- Wyvern poison now lasts 25 seconds and deals 4 damage a second.
- Headhunter cooldown reduced to 2.26 from 2.34.

- Mirror Image cost reduced to 125 from 150.

Night Elves
- Dryad damage increased from 15-17 to 16-18.
- Entangle now prevents an affected unit from attacking, and interrupts
  channeling spells such as Blizzard and Starfall. However, its duration
  has been reduced to 12(3)/24(4)/36(5) (unit(Hero)).
- Treants created by Force of Nature now benefit from the Nature's Blessing
  upgrade.
- Mana Burn cooldown is now 7/6/5 seconds by level, down from 7/7/7 seconds
  by level.
- Tranquility cooldown reduced to 60 from 120.
- Tranquility mana cost reduced to 125 from 200.
- Cyclone no longer affects mechanical units.
- Rejuvenation can now be cast on units at full health.
- Ancients now attack while rooted.
- Hippogryph attack decreased from 1d9 + 37 to 1d7 + 31 to reflect new
  air pathing changes.
- Chimaera splash increments reduced by 50 for quarter, 25 for half. This
  effectively means that Chimaeras will do less splash damage than previously.

Items
- Items have been revamped with new level tables. Items now have a level
  from 1 to 8, along with one of several categories. Items of levels 1 to 6
  can be charged items, permanent items, or powerups. Items of level 7 or
  higher are artifacts.
  Examples: Wand of Lightning Shield (charged), Stone Token (charged), Ring
  of Protection +2 (permanent), Tome of Strength +2 (powerup), Mask of Death
  (artifact).
- You can now sell items at the Goblin Merchant by right-clicking on an item,
  and then "dropping" it onto a Goblin Merchant.
- Scroll of Town Portal now takes 5 seconds to use. During this time it is
  being "channeled", and the Hero using it cannot be attacked or stunned.
  Under no circumstances can the town portal be aborted once started.
- Wand of Illusion can no longer be cast on hostile units. This change was
  made to prevent players from cheesing high level creep camps by using Wand
  of Illusion on high level creeps, and then using this illusionary creep to
  tank the damage.
- Boots of Speed no longer stack--two Boots of Speed will make a Hero just
  as fast as one.

Other
- When "attack-moving", air units now prefer to attack other air units more
  often than previously.
- Creeps that are not in combat now ignore flying units. This means that if
  you move flying units around using "move" instead of "attack move", creeps
  will generally not attack them.
- Creeps can no longer be dragged via constant attacks--they eventually give
  up and return to their start location.
- Goblin Sappers now deal 750 damage to buildings, 250 damage to all units,
  and 185 damage to Heroes. These values are reduced by armor values such as
  '5 armor', but do not interact with armor types (e.g. 'Medium armor').
- Units in a transport killed over ground will "spill out" over a wider
  area. This means that surrounding a webbed transport and killing it will
  generally not kill the passengers.
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: In clear english, that means that the units drop by
the killed webbed transport would die if their "landing spot" (chosen at random
from a small radius) was already taken by another ground unit. Now, the
landing spot radius is much, but MUCH wider.


PATCH 1.06

BALANCE CHANGES
Improved Counterability
You can find further information related to armor and damage types on
Blizzard's web site at
http://www.battle.net/war3/basics/armorandweapontypes.shtml
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: Edited this since the whole thing is somewhere else
in the document so it makes no sense to add it here as well.

Spellcaster Rebalance
- Most spellcasters (Sorceress, Priest, Shaman, Witch Doctor, Necromancer,
  Banshee, Druid of the Talon) have been re-balanced. In general, units
  with piercing damage rip up spellcasters, while basic melee units, such
  as Ghouls or Footmen, are weak against spellcasters. The specific
  changes to the units in question are:
  * They have a new armor type, unarmored, which takes bonus damage from
    siege and piercing attacks.
  * They also have a new damage type, magic, which does reduced damage to
    fortified and hero armor, but does bonus damage against medium armor.
  * They had their damage adjusted, typically downwards.
  * They no longer gain damage as they go up in level, and gain less
    hitpoints as they go up in level (but start with more hitpoints when
    initially built)
  * Many autocast buffs and debuff costs reduced.
  * Casters, including Dryads, have had their mana regeneration rates
    boosted by 30%.
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: This only applies to Multiplayer. Single Player
campaign keeps their previous damage and armor types.

Hero Damage
- Heroes now have an aptly named hero damage type. It deals 100% damage
  to everything except fortified armor, to which it deals 50% damage. Hero
  damage was added so that heroes no longer strongly counter ranged units
  such as Archers and Crypt Fiends.

Advanced Structures
- Most advanced technology structures had their build times reduced. This
  reduction ranged from 20 seconds for especially underused structures, to
  10 seconds for less underused structures. For instance, the Slaughterhouse
  builds 20 seconds faster now, while the Arcane Sanctum build time was only
  reduced 10 seconds.

Humans
- Flares now cost 75/25 to research, down from 100/50.
- Inner Fire cost increased to 35, from 25.

  of 12 seconds, down from 20 seconds.
- Bladestorm cooldown reduced to 3 minutes, down from 4 minutes.

Night Elves
- Cyclone duration on units increased to 15 from 10.
- Faerie Fire cost reduced to 35 from 75.
- Chimaera Roost cost reduced to 230/70 from 280/100
- Ancients temporarily lose their fortified armor when they uproot,
  becoming medium armor units.
- Dryads now have the unarmored armor type. This change was made to
  further specialize Dryads as melee killers, but allow piercing damage
  units, such as Crypt Fiends and Archers, to counter them more
  effectively.
- Dryad hitpoints increased to 435 from 380.

Other
- All basic siege units (Mortar Teams, Catapults, etc.) have had their night
  sight increased to 1100 from 1000.

Creeps
- Creep-cast Polymorph duration reduced to 25.
- Creep autocast Heal heals 12 hp a cast not 15.
- Lightning Lizards, Thunder Lizards and Storm Wyrms no longer friendly
  fire - their attacks only hit hostile targets.
- Lightning Lizard damage reduced from 1d8 + 16 to 1d8 + 14
- Thunder Lizard damage reduced from 1d11+30 to 1d8+26.
- Centaur Impaler hitpoints reduced to 350 from 450.

Items
- Anhk of Reincarnation is now a level 7 item.
- Potion of Restoration now heals 500 health and 200 mana, rather than fully
  replenishing a hero's health and mana.
- Scroll of Restoration now heals 300 health and 150 mana, rather than fully
  replenishing all targets health and mana.
- Tome of Experience is now a level 5 item
- Scroll of Protection cost reduced to 150

29.

MAP CHANGES

  patch 1.03 and patch 1.04. Some examples include:

  for a trigger in the editor.

BALANCE CHANGES
Humans
- Brilliance Aura has been reworked, and is no longer % based.  It now adds
  a fixed amount of mana per second to units under its power -- .75, 1.5,
  and 2.25 respectively by level. While it's just as effective with mass spell-
  casters, players will find it is less powerful (though still exceedingly
  useful) with Heroes.
- Divine Shield now costs 25 mana, down from 75.
- Blizzard no longer goes up in radius as the level of the ability increases.
- Water elementals now last 60 seconds, down from 75.

  damage, up from 16-18 damage. They also have less armor (3, down from 5),
  but also hit harder against air units, doing 51-63 damage, up from 46-57
  damage.  Note that they are still just as effective against air units as
  they were before, but their ground attack has been much improved.
- Death Pact now costs 50 mana (down from 75), and can be cast twice as
  frequently as before (15 seconds cooldown from 30).
- Lich Heroes now have far more hit points, as they now have 15 str + 2/level,
  up from 13 + 1.6/level.
- Frost Armor is now an auto-cast spell which will target units under attack
  if auto-casting is enabled.  Frost Armor also costs less mana -- 40 down
  from 50.

  attack more slowly than before.

- Grunts now have 700 hit points, up 20 from 680.
- Shaman's attack is far less powerful.  They attack somewhat more slowly,
  and also do 11-12 damage, down from 14-16 damage.
- Stasis Ward and Sentry Ward no longer inhibit movement or building
  construction.

Night Elves
- Sentinel can now be removed from a tree with various dispels (Wand of
  Negation, Dryads, etc.), as well by attacking the tree with a peon or siege
  unit (previously, the tree had to be destroyed -- now it merely has to be
  damaged).
- Mana Burn no longer affects units with Mana Burn (Demon Hunters, Satyr
  Soulstealers, Felhounds, etc.).
- Thorns is now a %-based ability that reflects 10%, 20% or 30% of melee
  damage dealt by level.
- Wisp's sight radius increased by 25%.
- Detonate now does 225 damage against summoned creatures, up from 150.
- Non-tree buildings now have 5 armor, up from 2.
- Ballistae now have an "Attack Ground" command.
- Force of Nature cooldown reduced to 20 seconds, down from 30 seconds.
- Treants now last 60 seconds, down from 75 seconds.
- Eating trees now gives a constant, non-stacking healing effect for 10
  seconds.
- Moon Wells now spend mana on health and mana replenishment separately. For
  instance, if you sent a 0-mana, nearly dead Demon Hunter to a Moon Well,
  and the Moon Well had 100 mana, your DH would gain 25 mana, and 100 health.
  Before, the Hero would gain 200 health and 50 mana. This change does not
  affect the benefits of healing a unit without mana.

Creeps
- All melee creeps in between levels 1 and 5 are slightly more powerful.
- All creeps of level 6 or higher now have Hero magic resistance.
- Creeps of level 7 or higher will behave more intelligently in general.
- All creeps of level 7 or higher now deal Chaos damage.
- Level 10 Dragons no longer have spell immunity.
- Many minor creep balance tweaks to damage and abilities.
- Mercenaries are now more accurately priced in general, which in most
  cases amounts to price decreases.

Items
- Scepter of Mastery no longer will drop randomly in multiplayer maps.
- Tome of Power, Mask of Death both increased in level (8 to 9 and 8 to 10
  respectively).
- Wand of Lightning Shield is now a level-3 item, down from level 6.
- Sentry Ward item now comes with 3 charges, down from 5.
- Periapt of Vitality now gives 150 hps, up from 100.
- Pendant of Mana now gives 250 mana, down from 300.
- Tome of Experience now gives Heroes 150 experience points, down from 200.

NOTE: Replays are incompatible between major game revisions. (1.02 replays
cannot be viewed with the 1.03 version of Warcraft III.)


PATCH 1.02a

- Added localized Battle.net messages.


PATCH 1.02

FIXES

- Necklace of Immunity, Tome of Greater Experience, and Goblin Land Mines
  no longer randomly drop in multiplayer games.
- Scroll of Resurrection & Scroll of Animate Dead item level increased.
- Bridges are no longer destroyable on the (6)Stromguarde.w3m map.

NOTE: Replays are incompatible between major game revisions. (1.01 replays
cannot be viewed with the 1.02 version of Warcraft III.)


PATCH 1.01c

- Fixed an issue with copy protection for certain DVD drives.


 PATCH 1.01b

- Fixed a problem where players were disconnected from a game as it was
  starting and thus getting a loss.


PATCH 1.01

** Welcome to Warcraft III and improved Battle.net! **

This patch contains various data and code updates necessary for play on
Battle.net as well as some minor balance changes.
NOTE FROM LORD ZERO: This was the original patch you received if you conected
quickly enough to battle.net :P. Most changes were speed related.


*****************************************************************************

14.- Frequently Asked Questions.

14.1.- Which is the best race?

That is larguely based on anyone's oppinion or the version number (Some
versions have balance problems that made a race particulary dominant, the
Night Elf was originally terribly unbalanced and the humans sucked badly),
but any race can do, save for someone using some feature (read: cheap tactic
that shouldn't be there ).

14.2.- Are there any Cheat Codes?

Damn right. Check the appropiate section. Hmph.

14.3.- Okay, how about MULTIPLAYER CHEAT CODES?

Feel free to scan the net for a hack and get your CD KEY banned.

Really, refrain from using them. They might get your ranking throughout the
roof, but, frankly, Battle.net is a community. Don't abuse others.

14.4.- Is there an expansion pack?

Yep. The Frozen Throne. Feel free to pick it up from your favorite shop.
It adds new units and buildings, as well as a new hero per race, and four
neutral heroes to be hired on a particular neutral building- including
Pit Lords, and a PANDAREN hero. It also adds three new campaigns (Night
Elf, Humans and Undead, in that order), while the Orcs get an interesting
RPG-ish sceneario. Also contains the Orc Lost missions, the demo campaign
for the Orcs.

NOTE: If you install the Frozen Throne, you will have to update your
game again, as patches are removed and the version number will be set
to 1.07 by default.

14.5.- Are you going to write a faq about THE FROZEN THRONE?

I'd love to, but I'm not really sure. While I do have the start of the
guide and about 60 KBs written, this one has already taken lots of time
to write, and I'm not even finished. But be on the lookout because I
still plan to release it.

14.6.- Wasn't there a Panda race?

No. It was an April's Fool joke by Blizzard.

14.7.- How many Warcraft games are out there?

Six.

Warcraft: Orcs and Humans
Warcraft II: The Tides of Darkness.
Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal (WC II Expansion pack)
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne (WC III Expansion pack)
World of Warcraft (Massive Multiplayer Online RPG)

Another game, Warcraft Adventures, was originally planned. It was
a graphic adventure game. It was cancelled due to poor quality
mostly (And I'm being biased because I hate graphic adventures,
but the graphics were terrible).

14.8.- Can you control the Burning Legion / Terrans / Zerg?

No.

14.9.- Why aren't there any water units when they were on WC II?

Couldn't tell you on a bet.

14.10.- Wasn't the Ranger a human unit before? Where is she?

The Ranger was a human hero in the early betas, but she was removed since
Blizzard thought it would be too difficult to control four heroes, as all
race were supposed to be able to do. Further testing made this a fact, as
well as three heroes are even rarely used.

Silvanas Winderunner is the only Ranger in the game (even the only possible
name if by some reason some user-made map has her in the hero pool). Another
theory is that the Warlocks (Archimonde model) and the Pit Lord (Manorroth
model) were also playable and removed. Those two seemed like undead heroes.
The Orc Warchief was probably the fourth Orc Hero. Dunno about the Night Elves
one.

15.- Hotkeys.

NOTE: Any mistake is my fault, as I did this bassically from memory. Any upgrade
such as the Orcs Steel / Thorioum / Arcanite Armor is only noted as the first
name.
