2.-Introduction.

The expansion for the ultra-successful stand alone game "Warcraft III: The
Reign of Chaos", The Frozen Throne provides a whole new slew of new units,
new heroes, items and buildings, as well as a new campaign for the Undead,
Humans and Night Elves, and a bonus campaign for the Orcs, which is more or
less an RPG campaign, which is expected to receive periodics updates from
Blizzard during this year.

The game even adds a rough new two races: The Naga and the Draenei, though
the first is only playable in the campaign and the second isn't even for
the player to control.

The Frozen Throne is a worthy addition to the already wonderful WC III, and
it's heavily recommended to inject new life into the game. I've decided
to write this guide in order to shed some light about info on this game,
as for some reason it has been lacking.

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

3.- About this Guide.

You know: 800x600. Stuff. You better watch the guide under that resolution
or better or... er... demons will come out of your screen. Yeah.

(Or... Yana's, If you will. Haha.)

(Who might Yana be? [1])

(^_^)

This guide is designed to be kinda like a "expansion guide" to my WC III
guide already published in gamefaqs.com. Think of it as the same guide. Only
the most basic sections are reproduced (unlike a certain guide i can think
of right now), and the rest is only focused in the new units, buildings and
campaigns.

As with my Warcraft III guide, I've done EVERYTHING I know for this guide.
I can't really say anything else unless i work out some brand new and
monstruous strategy or something, so don't bother emailing me if something
doesn't works for you.

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

4.- History.

Months after the battle in Mount Hyjal, Illidian Stormrage, the cursed Demon
Hunter, now no longer a Night elf yet not a total demon, is out for revenge.
Being shunned and misunderstood by everyone, including his brother and his
long-time love, he strikes a death pact with a demon to seize control of
more power, and destroy the one who threatens his plans: The Lich King.

In some other place, the Prince of Blood Elves feels that what is left of
his race is being mistreated. He wants to get recgonicion for his work.

And finally, there is someone who's looking to get the Demon Hunter. The
Warden Maeiv Shadowsong will not let her prey escape once again, or will die
trying.

Guide for the Warcraft series, available at gamefaqs.com)

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

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.

In The Frozen Throne, the supply limit is 100, unlike The Reign of Chaos,
where the cap is 90.

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.
(That said, there is a mission on the campaign where you have to control
four heroes.)
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 it :).

Upkeep is negligible (read: is 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 60 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 80 supplies, you will be in 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. In
the Frozen Throne, after level 5, heroes will stop gaining experience
from Creeps.

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, Crypt Lord, Pandaren
				  Brewmaster, Beastmaster, Pit Lord, Goblin
				  Alchemist.
INTELLIGENCE HEROES	: Lich, Far Seer, Keeper of the Groove, Arch Mage,
				  Blood Mage, Naga Sea Witch, Elder Sage, Goblin
				  Tinker.
AGILITY HEROES		: Blade Master, Demon Hunter, Priestess of the Moon,
				  Warden, Shadowhunter, Dark Ranger (Ranger too),
				  Firelord.

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, armor 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. On the Frozen Throne, the Warden and the Pitlord are
also likely hero-killers, thanks to their disabling spells and particulary
damaging techniques.

Particulary, the Warden is without a doubt the choice to kill an opposing
hero, as Shadow Strike + Blinks is absurdly difficult to escape from.

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.

FINAL NOTE: Prices of units have been dropped for the Frozen Throne.
All units and buildings cost at least 15% less than what they did during
Reign of Chaos.

6.1.- Human Alliance.

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.- New buildings, Units and Upgrades.

a)UNITS:
 ______________
|              |
| SPELLBREAKER |
|______________|

COST: 215 gold, 30 lumber, 3 food.
ABILITIES: Control Magic (researched at the Arcane Sanctum).
STATS: HP			: 600
	 Attack rating	: 13-15 / 15-17 / 17-19 / 19-20
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Normal
	 Armor		: 3 / 5 / 7 / 9
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

The SpellBreakers are magic-immune anti-casters units which are
particulary annoying to fight against. They have good fighting stats
by themselves, and their ability to run through Flame Strikes
undamaged is priceless on the tactic department. The Spellbreakers
eat spell casters alive, but are less than great against regular units.
Best when paired with the Blood Mage. Their two spells are Control
Magic, which can steal opposing summoned units, and Spell Steal,
which moves buffs and debuffs to your units and to the enemies
respectively.
 ___________________
|                   |
| DRAGON HAWK RIDER |
|___________________|

COST: 235 gold, 40 lumber, 3 food.
ABILITIES: Animal War Training (Researched at the Barracks).
STATS: HP			: 700
	 Attack rating	: 18-20 / 20-22 / 22-24 / 24-26
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 1 / 3 / 5 / 7
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Unvaluable in base strikes, the Dragon Hawks are supporting
units which can disable enemy base defenses with ease as well as
disabling air units with their Air Shackles, making this a very
dominant air unit despite their apparent frailty. However (yep...)
their are nearly defenseless against ground units, and there are a
few air units (namely the Destroyer) which are the bane of this unit.
Powerful anyway.
 _________
|         |
| PHOENIX |
|_________|

COST: N/A
ABILITIES: None.
STATS: HP			: 1250
	 Attack rating	: 61 - 75
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 3
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Summoned

Mighty indeed, the Phoenix is a very powerful and difficult to destroy
flying unit which can easily make fun of a whole army and come back
for more. Summoned by the Blood Mage, the Phoenix should be taken
special care leaving it behind when it dies, as it will turn into an
egg to come back for more in a few seconds. The Phoenix itself will
take constant damage until it dies to the Egg form.

b) Buildings.

 ______________
|              |
| ARCANE VAULT |
|______________|

GOLD			: 130
LUMBER		: 30
HP			: 485
ARMOR			: 5 / 7 / 9


The Arcane Vault is the human shop. You can buy the following items
for your heroes here:

- Scroll of Regeneration.
- Mechanical Critter.
- Lesser Clarity Potion.
- Potion of Healing.
- Potion of Mana.
- Scroll of Town Portal.
- Ivory Tower.
- Orb of Fire.
- Staff of Sanctuary.

 ______________
|              |
| ARCANE TOWER |
|______________|

GOLD			: 80
LUMBER		: 60
HP			: 550
ARMOR			: 5 / 7 / 8
ATTACK RATING	: 8-10
ATTACK TYPE		: Normal


The Arcane Tower is your advanced 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. It's effective
against magic units and heroes. Has the same Feedback ability from
the Spell Breakers.


c) Upgrades:

CHANGE: The Gyrocopters are now renamed Flying Machines.
CHANGE: The Siege Tanks are now renamed Siege Engines and their
appearance has vastly changed.
CHANGE: The Wind Serpents (previously a High Elf unit) are now
renamed Dragon Hawk Riders.
CHANGE: <AS OF VERSION 1.19> Defend now has an extra 30% chance
to deflect piercing attacks back at the source.

BARRAGE: 50 gold, 150 lumber. Gives the Siege Engines the passive
ability to damage nearby enemy air units. Researched at the Workshop.

Researched at the Town Hall.


6.1.2.- Heroes.

a)BLOOD MAGE:

NOTES: The Blood Mage is a powerful offensive hero who can lead armies of
Spellbreakers into battle and combines power with disruption. The Blood Mage
can dominate an unsuspecting opponent with its spells, and is very likely the
best human hero. It requires a bit of practice though, since he's a micro
spell casting hero. Wonderful with Spellbreakers.

HERO TYPE: Support caster.

PROS: Massive spells, wonderful summon, two powerful disruption spells which
can spell doom on opposing heroes or enemies. Okay stats, pairs with any hero
(human or neutral) extremely well. Good ammount of HP for a Intelligence
hero.
CONS: Okay stats- Often difficult to use. Restricted choice when electing
armies. Very mana-intensive. Takes a lot of time to get used to. Banish is
a very difficult to use spell. Weak attack power.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Archmage or Pandaren Brewmaster.
BEST ARMY: Spellbreakers.

ABILITIES:

FLAME STRIKE
The Flame Strike is a definitely strong spell which can deal a lot of
damage to a group of enemies, buildings or whatever you might want to
aim it at. There are two very important cons to this powerful ability:
One, is that there are way too many magic immune units by now and
the fact that it take two seconds or so to actually start dealing damage,
during the time there is a very noticeable and cool sound which will
make everyone notice that the area shinning is about to blow up.

LEVEL 1: 45 damage/second, lasts 3 seconds.
LEVEL 2: 80 damage/second, lasts 3 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 110 damage/second, lasts 3 seconds.

BANISH
Turning a unit ethereal has three points: They take no damage from
regular attacks, they cannot attack, and they take bonus damage from
spells (66% more). This can be used with various ends, but in the end
this ability isn't very good.

LEVEL 1: 75 mana cost, lasts 12 second.
LEVEL 2: 50 mana cost, lasts 24 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 25 mana cost, lasts 36 seconds.

SIPHON MANA
The Mana version of the siphons spells, this spell sucks the mana out
of the target to give it to your Blood Mage. To be fair and honest,
this ability worked intesely great in single-player, but in multiplayer
is less than great as it's difficult to manage. Will keep sucking
until the target escapes its range.

LEVEL 1: 18 mana/second.
LEVEL 2: 35 mana/second.
LEVEL 3: 55 mana/second.

PHOENIX
The Phoenix summons a powerful fighting unit which can last forever if
used correctly, while it isn't as mounstruous as the Infernal, the
Phoenix can deal a lot of damage to other units before it is taken down
and even then the thing will come back to life. If the egg is destroyed,
the phoenix dies. The Phoenix itself will burn itself to death while it's
alive to fall back into the egg state.

LEVEL 1: Summons a flying, 1250 HP unit, which has no timer, but will
         take 25 points of damage per second. When it dies, it will go
         to the Egg form, which has 200 HP, and has a timer upon which
	   the unit will be reborn.



6.1.4.- General Strategies.

Humans haven't changed much from their original strategies (unlike
all other races) except for the now lack of effectivity by their
magic units thanks to the massive anti-caster overhaul on the
expansion.

Against most opponents, massing an specific unit continues to be
effective: Spellbreakers and a Bloodmage is simply TEH TECH. Or something
similar. Problem is that the humans are still lacking that all-around unit
to deal the finishing blow. I personally still find the Riflemen to be
vital, though now I prefer to use the Blood Mage instead of the Archmage
because, well, it's a lot more fun to use.

The best two neutral heroes for the humans are the Pandaren Brewmaster or
the Beast Master. Of course, the former is the all around dude and the
second is the cheapest thing in the game (especially along NE), but
since the only heavy hitter for the humans is the Mountain King, both
heroes are definitely better choices.

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.- New Units, Buildings and Upgrades.

a) Units
 ________________
|                |
| TROLL BATRIDER |
|________________|

COST: 160 gold, 40 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Liquid Fire (researched on the Beastiary).
STATS: HP			: 500
	 Attack rating	: 11-12 / 12-14  / 13-16 / 14-16
	 Attack Type	: Siege
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Troll Batrider is an annoying flying siege unit which can
totally obliterate building and bases within seconds thanks to
their special ability, Liquid Fire, which prevents buildings
from being even repaired. They are also very effective (though
costly) anti-air units, with their other ability, Unstable
Concoction, which sends them on kamikaze strikes against air
units. Good unit.
 _______________
|               |
| SPIRIT WALKER |
|_______________|

COST: 195 gold, 35 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Spirit Walker Adept Training (Researched at the
Spirit Lodge), Spirit Walker Master Training (Researched
at the Spirit Lodge).
STATS: HP			: 500
	 Attack rating	: 17-22
	 Attack Type	: Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Tauren Spirit Walker is an interesting caster which
comes out of the Spirit Lodge in ethereal form, and he can
change form (ethereal or physical) at will. The Spirit Walker
has Soul Link, which distributes the damage received by
the affected units between them. It also has Disenchant,
which is a dispel effect, and finally has Ancenstral Spirit,
which can raise a friendly dead Tauren (Spirit Walker or
regular Taurens, but not Chieftains) from the dead. It also deals
an abnormally high ammount of damage for a spell caster.

NOTE: The Spirit Walker has been given Resistant Skin as well.
 ______________

	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Static
	 Clasification	: Mechanical

The Serpent Ward is summoned by the Shadow Hunter. It's
an inmobile unit which will attack nearby enemy units.

c) Upgrades.

CHANGE: The Catapults are now renamed Demolishers, and their

attacks to set buildings on fire. Researched at the Barracks.
BERSERKER UPGRADE: 75 gold, 175 lumber. Upgrades the

their firepower but lowers their defense. Researched at the
Barracks.

for towers and Burrows to fortified. Researched at the War Mill.
SPIRIT WALKER ADEPT TRAINING: 100 gold, 50 lumber. Upgrades the

upgrades the hit points, mana capacity and mana regeneration for
the Spirit Walkers, and give them the ability to cast Ancestral
Spirit.
BACKPACK: 25 gold, 50 lumber. Allows certain ground units (namely the
Grunts, Trolls and Berserkers) to carry (but not use) items.
Researched at the Main Hall.

6.2.2.- Heroes.

a) SHADOWHUNTER:

NOTES: A much needed supporting hero, the Shadowhunter is an useful
backyard caster which can heal and send help from behind the lines
in order to save your units. Unlike the rest of the horde heroes, the
Shadowhunter is actually a very defensive hero, which should be choosen
first as a healer, and later in the game his other abilities will
be sure to dominate the battleground.

HERO TYPE: Supporting caster.

PROS: It's a frigging Healer for the game's biggest units. Enough said.
CONS: Fairly fragile. No direct damage spell. Seems to die first in
combat since it has a huge bulleye in his chest as he is the healer.
Often difficult to use.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Tauren Chieftain.
BEST ARMY: Grunts.

ABILITIES

HEALING WAVE

Exactly the same thing as the Chain lightning, except that it
heals. Lazy Blizzard. Lack of work behind, Healing Wave is a
very powerful spell which can turn around battles combined with
the naturally resistant Orc units. It can't damage undead, but,
heh, you asked for a healer, you got it. Beggars can't be choosers.

LEVEL 1: Heals 130 HP, jumps 3 times.
LEVEL 2: Heals 215 HP, jumps 4 times.
LEVEL 3: Heals 300 HP, jumps 5 times.

HEX

Exactly the same thing as the Polymorph, except that this one is
actually useful. Lazy Blizzard. Eh.

Hex turns an opposing unit to a random critter for a set ammount of
time. The best thing about this spell is that it works on any
kind of enemy unit, including HEROES, but excluding summoned units.
It's a difficult spell to get used to, but it can be really useful.

LEVEL 1: Lasts 15 seconds.
LEVEL 2: Lasts 30 seconds.
LEVEL 3: Lasts 45 seconds.

SERPENT WARD

Interesting spell to get additional firepower, the Serpent Ward
is a powerful enough static ranged unit which can deal a lot of
damage if left unattended, and, furthermore, it's immune to magic.
Unfortunately, the thing only has up to 135 HPs and the range
is rather limited. Lasts 40 seconds.

LEVEL 1: 11-13 damage, 75 HP.
LEVEL 2: 23-26 damage, 135 HP.
LEVEL 3: 41-45 damage, 135 HP.

BIG BAD VOODOO

Insanely abusable spell, Big Bad Voodoo turns all of your
nearby friendly units invulnerable for 30 seconds, provided that
you can protect the Shadow Hunter during that time, as the
hero does not turn invulnerable himself, and the spell is
channeled. Great in base strikes.

LEVEL 1: Turns all of the nearby friendly units invulnerable
         for thirty seconds.


6.2.3.- General Strategies.

Orcs are now fairly proficient in base strikes, with three very
annoying siege units. I've won several games by using a small force
as a diversion in order to smash on the back of their base with
12 Batriders.

The Blademaster's improved Windwalk has earned him a place on
most player's strategy. Using him and a bunch of Raiders,to ensnare
enemies, a group of Spirti Walkers to Spirit link everyone and
a few Kodos is a powerful strategy backed up by a Shadow Hunter
that's being adopted as the definitive tactic by orcish fans.

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.- New buildings, Units and Upgrades.

a) Units:
 ________________
|                |
| MOUNTAIN GIANT |
|________________|

COST: 425 gold, 100 lumber, 7 food.
ABILITIES: Resistant Skin (researched at the Ancient of Lore),
	     Hardened Skin (researched at the Ancient of Lore)
STATS: HP			: 1400
	 Attack rating	:  / / /
	 Attack Type	: Normal
	 Armor		: 4
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Slow
	 Clasification	: Biological

The Mountain Giant is a ridiculously resistant unit which is
mainly engineered in order to absorb damage. He's both resistant
to damage and to spells, and can take a tree in order to gain
a bit more range and siege damage and can also use Taunt which
will cause all enemy units around it to attack the Giant.
It is, however, extremely expensive and very slow.
 _______________
|               |
| FAERIE DRAGON |
|_______________|

COST: 125 gold, 25 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: none.
STATS: HP			: 450
	 Attack rating	: 13-14
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Another anti-caster unit, the Faerie Dragon also serves as a
very cheap air unit which can wreck havoc against the unsuspecting
enemy. It's also rather difficult to kill if used correctly since
their both abilities serve to evade damage somehow: Phase Shift allows
it to be "un-targeted" by enemy units and to evade attacks and
dispell de-buffs cast on it, and Mana Flare causes it to gain 12
additional armor and to deal 70 damage per second to nearby
enemy units. It's also the cutest thing ever seen on a game since
Kara's berserker suit on Final Fantasy V.
 _____________________
|                     |
| AVATAR OF VENGEANCE |
|_____________________|

COST: N/A
ABILITIES: None.
STATS: HP			: 1200
	 Attack rating	: 25-36
	 Attack Type	: Normal
	 Armor		: 2
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

With Hardened skin and Magic immunity, the Avatar of Vengeance is
a heavy unit which true strenght lies on its ability to raise
Spirits of Vengeace from dead bodies. This ability is greatly
improved in massive battles, and the Avatar itself isn't exactly
powerful.

NOTE: This unit is particulary abusable on team games. Keep that
in mind.
 _____________________

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

Very powerful in packs, the Spirits are raised by the Avatar
of Vengeance from dead bodies. It's extremely difficult to get
rid of these units, and they are quickly raised as the ability
cooldowns very fast, so wait until there are many dead bodies
in order to get the most of these units.

c) Upgrades:

CHANGE: The Chimera's ground attack against units is now considered

CHANGE: The Druid of the Talon attack while in Crow mode is now
considered magical (and as thus it will not damage magic immune
units)
CHANGE: The Ballistae are renamed Glaive Thrower and their appearance
has slightly changed. Their upgrade is now renamed Vorpal Blade, though
the ability is exactly the same.
CHANGE: <AS OF VERSION 1.19> Archers have a new Passive ability,
Elune Graces, which gives them a 30% damage reduction against
piercing attacks and 20% spell resistance.

6.3.2.- Heroes:

a)WARDEN

NOTES: The Warden is a powerful manouverable hero which pairs very well
with the Demon Hunter thanks to her great spells. Best used as a first
hero in order to get the most out of her Blink, which is easily her
most important spell. However, her stats are barely okay and she's
extremely vulnerable and easy to kill if not used correctly. That said,
the Warden is quite likely the best hero killer in the game, which goes
pretty well with the theme.

HERO TYPE: Specialist.

PROS: Incredible powerful manouvering and positioning. Small and quick.
Powerful and damaging spells. Interesting ultimate. Can often win
in heavy hero Vs hero battles.
CONS: Rather fragile. Easy to get killed if not looked for carefully.
Very low HP and damage. Often overwhelmed by more powerful heroes.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Demon Hunter, Dark Ranger, Naga Sea Witch.
BEST ARMY: Archers.

ABILITIES

BLINK

Arguably the best non-damaging spell in the game, Blink is a
ridiculous spell in the hands of a competent player. This spell
allows the Warden to bassically control the flow of the battle
as the Warden herself is a important target, and also allows
her to catch upon fleeing enemies or to escape from a certain
death. Powerful stuff.

Not to mention that is terrifyingly funny to teleport around.

LEVEL 1: 50 mana cost, 10 seconds cooldown.
LEVEL 2: 10 mana cost, 10 seconds cooldown.
LEVEL 3: 10 mana cost, 1 second cooldown.

FAN OF KNIVES

Interesting spell and definitely useful in certain situations,
Fan of Knives suffers from the fact that it really doesn't
does a lot of damage, and unlike other similar spells (such as
Warstomp and Thunderclap) it doesn't leaves any stat effect
and it can only hit up to five units.

Powerful harrassing spell, though.

LEVEL 1: 70 damage per target, 350 max.
LEVEL 2: 115 damage per target, 575 max.
LEVEL 3: 180 damage per target, 980 max.

SHADOW STRIKE

Very damaging ability which not only damages, but it also
slows down the affected unit and causes damage over time. Great
hero-killer spell and perhaps the best choice over Fan of
Knives. The poison effect it's, however, dispellable. Is
that even a word?

LEVEL 1: 75 initial damage, 15/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .
LEVEL 2: 150 initial damage, 30/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .
LEVEL 3: 225 initial damage, 45/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .

VENGEANCE

Vengeance's true power is really shown only in team games as the
summoned unit isn't really powerful, but the power of summoning
invulnerable fighting units with such speed out of dead bodies is
definitely overwhelming on the right situations. Concentrate on other
abilities if you're not playing with many players, but make sure to
play with it if the situation offers enough dead bodies to abuse it.

LEVEL 1: Summons a 1200 HP magic immune unit which can raise
	   invulnerable spirits of vengeance from dead bodies.
         When the avatar dies, so will the spirits.

6.3.3.-  General Strategies.

The night elves new units (and the changes to the Chimerae) are
mainly concentrated on fighting off enemy casters and heroes
(main problem they had before). Concentrating on a couple of
units still works, though the Night Elves naturally wonderful
versatility is a big asset in order to win.

Archers, Demon Hunter or Warden and Druids of the Talon are
still a powerful strategy. I would advice avoiding Dryads if
the opponent is playing humans since they are ridiculously
easily countered by masses of Spellbreakers or Footmen. Similary,
against Orcs the Druids of the Talon, I would advice a defensive
strategy to see what they are up to, since the Faerie Dragons works
wonders against a massive Shaman-Grunts rush, and Huntress are a
better way to counter Trolls.

Against Undead or Night Elves themselves, Dryads and Archers,
with later support from Druids of the Claw or Mountain Giants
(If you CAN afford them :S) are more effective.

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.- New buildings, Units and Upgrades.

a) Units:

 _________________
|                 |
| OBSIDIAN STATUE |
|_________________|

COST: 200 gold, 35 lumber, 2 food.
ABILITIES: Destroyer Form (researched at the Slaughterhouse).
STATS: HP			: 550
	 Attack rating	: 7-8
	 Attack Type	: Magic Ranged
	 Armor		: 4
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Mechanical (¿?)

A very good support unit, the Obsidian Statue is a very resistant
unit which can heal HP or restore MP to allied units. A good addition
for any army, though their best thing is being able to morph into
the Destroyers.

 ___________
|           |
| DESTROYER |
|___________|

COST: 100 gold, 50 lumber, 2 food. Morphed from Obsidian Statues.
ABILITIES: none.
STATS: HP			: 900
	 Attack rating	: 19-21 / 20-24 / 21-27 / 22-30
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 3 / 5 / 7 / 9
	 Armor Type		: Light
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

A really heavy anti-magic air unit, the Destroyer is a powerful
unit adept at wrecking havoc from above. It's immune to spells,
can devour magic buffs to regain mana and HP, Orb of Annihillation,
which adds 20 extra damage to their attacks, and area damage. Finally,
they can destroy their allies mana to regain their own. Their weakness
is that they don't regenerate mana, they degenerate it, and, being
their attack magical in nature, it can't hit several dangerous units
*coughInfernalscough*.
 _______________
|               |
| SKELETAL MAGE |
|_______________|

COST: N/A.
ABILITIES: Skeletal Longevity (researched at the Temple of the Damned).
STATS: HP			: 230
	 Attack rating	: 11-12 / 12-14 / 13-16 / 14-18
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Summoned

When Skeletal Mastery is researched, one of the skeletons raised will be
a Mage. Slightly less damaging that the regular ones, but noticeably
more dangerous due to their ranged attack.


b) Buildings:
 ________________
|                |
| TOMB OF RELICS |
|________________|

GOLD			: 130
LUMBER		: 30
HP			: 485
ARMOR			: 5


The Tombs of Relics is the Undead shop. You can buy the
following items for your heroes here:

- Rod of Necromancy
- Sacrificial Skull
- Dust of Appearence
- Potion of Healing
- Potion of Mana
- Scroll f Town Portal
- Orb of Corruption
- Scroll of Healing

 ________________
|                |
| NERUBIAN TOWER |
|________________|

GOLD			: 100
LUMBER		: 20
HP			: 550
ATTACK RATING     : 9-10
ATTACK TYPE       : Magic Ranged
ARMOR			: 5


The Watch Tower is your new basic 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.
It's effective against heavy units. It slows down the targets,
but it's pretty weak.

c) Upgrades and Changes:

CHANGE: The Cannibalize upgrade also affects Abominations.
CHANGE: The Halls of the Dead and Black Citadel's attack is
now freezing in nature.

BACKPACK: 25 gold, 50 lumber. Allows certain ground units (namely the
Ghouls and Crypt Fiends) to carry (but not use) items.
Researched at the Main Hall.
SKELETAL MASTERY: 125 gold, 150 Lumber. Allows the Necromancers
to raise a Skeletal Mage from corpses. Researched at the Temple
of the Damned.
EXHUME CORPSES: 125 gold, 100 lumber. Allows the Meat Wagons to
generate dead bodies (ghouls) to use. Researched at the Slaughterhouse.
DESTROYER FORM: 175 gold, 150 lumber. Allows the Obsidian Statues
to morph into Destroyers. Researched at the Slaughterhouse.
BURROW: 75 gold, 75 lumber. Allows Crypt Fiends to burrow, which
hides them and increases HP regeneration. Researched at the Crypt.
NERUBIAN TOWER: 100 gold, 20 Lumber. Turns Ziggurats into Nerubian
Towers.

6.4.2.- Heroes.

a)CRYPT LORD:

NOTES: The only hero which can actually match the Tauren Chieftain
in raw power, the Crypt Lord is a migthy tank hero which can sustain
a ridiculous ammount of damage and dish it out too. Full of defensive
abilities and a versatile summon, the Crypt Lord is easily one of
the best heroes in the game.

HERO TYPE: Tank Hero.

PROS: Versatile abilities. Incredibly powerful ultimate. Can take a
lot of punishment and withstand enemy spells. Attracts fire like
there is no tommorrow. Difficult to kill on direct combat.
CONS: Very big and bulky: Has a lot of trouble moving around the
battlefield. While his regular strikes are very damaging, his spells
are not definitely damaging.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Death knight or Lich.
BEST ARMY: Crypt Fiends (Or Destroyers).

ABILITIES

IMPALE

A powerful ranged attack, it will damage and stun all enemies on
its way. The width of the attack is a lot bigger than it seems,
making it possible to stun a whole tightly-packed army. The damage
done is negligible (the Crypt Lord Himself will probably deal more
damage with his regular attack), but it's the best ability this
hero has, because, as the Mountain King showed us, Strenght Hero
plus stunning long range attack equals beatz. :P

LEVEL 1: 50 damage, 2 second stun.
LEVEL 2: 80 damage, 2 second stun.
LEVEL 3: 110 damage, 4 second stun.

SPIKED CARAPACE

The Crypt Lord's passive ability it's quite powerful, though it's
a signal that the Crypt Lord isn't an army-oriented character. The
extra armor added is absurd, plus the damage returned really hurts
melee heroes facing off the beetle one-on-one. Only affects melee
attacks.

LEVEL 1: 15% damage returned, 3 bonus armor.
LEVEL 2: 25% damage returned, 5 bonus armor.
LEVEL 3: 35% damage returned, 7 bonus armor.

CARRION BEETLES

Only permanent summon in the game, the Crypt Lord can summon these
from dead bodies. The real downside to this spell is the fact that
you can only have 5 Carrion Beetles at once, and they aren't very
powerful either, though many have found that they are best used as
scouts once level 2 is attained, as they can burrow. That said, I
particulary like the flavor of the spell, and the Crypt Lord surrounded
by its Carrion Beetles looks pretty cool.

As a footnote, once I faced a guy who managed to guess my next expo
spot, and burrowed five level three beetles in there. I was playing NE,
and he managed to destroy my Tree of Life, effectively piercing a huge
hole in my economy, and later, this set back cost me the game. I was
careless to send the Wisps alone, but, regardless, it was an interesting
move.

LEVEL 1: 140 HP, 8-9 damage.
LEVEL 1: 275 HP, 15-18 damage, Burrow.
LEVEL 1: 410 HP, 22-27 damage, Burrow.

LOCUST SWARM

A powerful ultimate, particulary due to its ease of use, which takes
advantage of the bulk of the Crypt Lord. It releases a bunch of insects
which will damage every enemy nearby the Crypt Lord, sucking health
for it. The Insects will home on the enemies, and will chase them even
out of the range of the spell.

ULTIMATE: Releases a swarm of insects, damaging enemies and healing the
	    Crypt Lord. Last 30 seconds.

6.4.4.- General Strategies.

The Undead are possibly the only race which hasn't really taken
a hit to their strategy, but gained a whole lot of abilities,
particulary with their new unit, the Destroyer.

This unit has become the core of the Undead strategy due to their
really high damage output compared with their relative low
cost. Having two dominant flying units (Gargoyles and Destroyers,
alongside the ocassional Frost wyrms), it can, easily, lead to a
victory on the shoulders of four nuking heroes.

Micro-management of your heroes is still crucial, as correct nuking
of core enemy units (Bears, heroes, Priests and even spirit walkers,
though it's important to note their spell resistance). Crypt Fiends
are nice complementary units (though perhaps no longer a good main
army) to go.

6.5.- Naga.

Ah, yes, the Naga. The so-called new race of the game, the Naga are
a really powerful and straightforward race with few units and spells,
only one hero (which it's hard to call a Naga hero or Neutral hero),
few buildings, and particular stats. Like the Undead, they have a unit
which is, technically, part of the race, but it's unnatainable.

The Naga are only controlled by the player during the final NE mission,
and a few other human (or rather blood elf) mission. During the times
you control them, or face them, it's clear that the Naga, just like the
Burning Legion, is extremely over-powered: their units are incredibly
effective, and they have a huge advantage,  which is being able to build
on water. Plus, they regenerate everywhere, everytime,
and finally, they are ALL amphibious units. Tipically led by Illidan,
who can also walk on water, makes clear that this race could not be
playable without a severe weakening.

6.5.1.- Units.

NOTE: All naga units are amphibious.
 _______________
|               |
| MUR'GUL SLAVE |

COST: 75 Gold, 1 Food.

	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Very slow
	 Clasification	: Biological

The worker of the Naga, the Slave is a normal one. They don't
have any particular ability. They harvest resources just like
Orcish Peons, and, funcionally, they are identical to the
green workers.

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

A regular melee unit, not very interesting, but it gets the job
done. That said, there is not reason (save a really tough economic
situation) to use these when the Myrmidon is just there.
 __________
|          |
| MYRMIDON |
|__________|

COST: 225 Gold, 55 Lumber,  4 Food.
ABILITIES: Ensnare (Researched at the SPawning Grounds), Submerge
(Researched at the Temple of the Tides).
STATS: HP			: 1080
	 Attack rating	: 33-39 / 34-41 / 35-43 / 36-45
	 Attack Type	: Melee Normal
	 Armor		: 2 / 4 / 6 / 8
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

Ah, yes, the meat of the Naga Army, the Myrmidons are extremely
effective cost wise, dealing lots of damage and being really hard
to destroy. Furthermore, their ability to deal with flying units
bringing them down with Ensnare it's incredible. Best Melee unit
in the game.
 _____________
|             |
| SNAP DRAGON |
|_____________|

COST: 200 Gold, 25 Lumber, 3 Food.
ABILITIES: Submerge (Researched at the Temple of the Tides).
STATS: HP			: 500
	 Attack rating	: 25-29 / 26-30 / 27-31 / 28-32
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 0 / 2 / 4 / 6
	 Armor Type		: Medium
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Fast
	 Clasification	: Biological

Fast and annoying, the Dragons are good anti-air and support
units due to their slow poison. They are sort of fragile, though,
so masses of Snap Dragons isn't really recommended (There is no
Death Knight with the Naga).
 _______
|       |
| SIREN |
|_______|

COST:  130 Gold, 20 Lumber, 2 Food.
ABILITIES:  Siren Adept training (Researched at the Temple of
		Azshara) Siren Master Training (Researched at the
		Temple of Aszhara).
STATS: HP			: 400
	 Attack rating	: 9-12
	 Attack Type	: Ranged Magic
	 Armor		: 0
	 Armor Type		: Unarmored
	 Speed		: Average
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

The caster for the Naga, the Sirens are extremely effective
support units for your Myrmidons. Via Frost Armor and Cyclone,
you can select your targets, and they have an exclusive spell,
Parasite, which plants a parasite (duh) on enemy units which
releases a unit when they die. Powerful stuff.

| DRAGON TURTLES |
|________________|

COST: 320 Gold, 65 Lumber, 5 Food.
ABILITIES: None?.

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing, Ranged Siege
	 Armor		: 1 / 3 / 5 / 7
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Slow
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: For some reason, Mechanical.

The Siege unit for the Naga, the Dragon Turtles are another
overpowered unit, due to their ability to not only eat buildings,
but their resistant skin, Spiked Shell (Which deals damage back
to melee attacks), and Devour. A group of four deals lots of
damage to bases, and can be a decisive factor in base strikes.

Tied with the Doom Guard for the most powerful non-hero unit in
the game, the Royal (ass-kickin') Guard is a ridiculously powerful
unit with a very high damage output, plenty of HP, obscene armor,
and even CHAOS attack type. Furthermore, they have Resistant Skin,
and three unique and really powerful spells: Crushing Wave, which
is sorta like the Dread Lord's Carrion Swarm, Frost Bolt, which
is kinda like the Mountain King's Storm Bolt, and Summon Sea Elemental,
which is more or less like the Archmage's Summon Water Elemental.

Well, maybe they are not that unique.

Either way, they are arguably the best unit in the game. Cannot
be built by the player, though, and are only awarded at the
single player missions either at the start, or as reinforcements.

6.5.2.- Heroes.

NOTE: The only Naga Hero is the Naga Sea Witch, Lady Vashj herself.
For the sake of continuity, I'll add the info of the Sea Witch
here as well as on the Neutral Heroes section [6.7].

NAGA SEA WITCH

A mystical Hero, adept at ranged combat. These scaly denizens of the ocean
have often been associated with the coming of prodigious storms, but few
have actually seen them rise from the sea and lived to tell the tale.

The Naga is a wonderful if not impressive hero (kinda like the Far Seer),
which can spell a lot of problems with her Frost Arrows and Forked
Lightning, or play a bit more defensive with her Mana Shield. Either
way, she's quite powerful as a hero killer or as a support, depending
on how you build her. A good choice for first or second hero.

HERO TYPE: Ranged Support / Hero Killer.

PROS: Frost arrows could be enough of a reason to get her. Powerful
attack power, lots of good abilites, powerful ultimate, she's the
most disrupting hero in the game.
CONS: Low HP, needs a lot of mana to function correctly.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Beastmaster, Mountain King, Warden, Tauren Chieftain,
Crypt Lord.
BEST ARMY: Myrmidons.

ABILITIES

FORKED LIGHTNING

A good attack, it will home on three units, dealing damage to
them on a range. Pretty basic, but extremely disrupting as it
deals regular damage to different units, making healing more
difficult. Really good to get rid of units in the middle of
the battle, when units are damaged.

LEVEL 1: 85 damage per unit.
LEVEL 2: 160 damage per unit.
LEVEL 3: 250 damage per unit.

FROST ARROWS

The most powerful weapon on the Sea Witch Arsenal, it will
slow down the target unit's attack and movement, making
them either useless on combat, or unable to escape properly.
It even gives extra damage. Most powerful attack-affecting
spell.

LEVEL 1: +5 damage, 30% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.
LEVEL 2: +10 damage, 50% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.
LEVEL 3: +15 damage, 70% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.

MANA SHIELD

Really abusable spell with the right items (namely lots of
MP recovering items or items that increase MP regeneration),
but only powerful on level 3. It will absorb damage, taking
away a proportional ammount of MP.

LEVEL 1: 1 damage per point of mana.
LEVEL 1: 1.5 damage per point of mana.
LEVEL 3: 2 damage per point of mana.

TORNADO

Another one of those "if it wasn't channeling" spells, the Tornado
sends out massive damage to building, slows down units, and even
sends some of them flying around at random.

One thing people tend to miss is the fact that you can control
the Tornados. They aren't really all that responsive, but it can
spell the difference between taking out that tower, or losing the
spell.

ULTIMATE: Creates Tornados.

NOTE: This ability is particulary weird. Stay tuned for more info.

to build at least two of them if you plan on using any of its units,
as it effectively doubles your capacity to build units. The following can

The Altar of The Depths 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 450 gold and
100 lumber as well as the food to come. A curious thing will be noted,
though, since the Naga don't have "tiers" per se, you can actually summon
every hero available right away.

The Tidal Guardian is your basic 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. It's effective
against flying units.

6.5.4.- General Strategies.

I know you're itching for strategies about the Naga, but, seriously,
what mod are you playing? I'd love to find one which enables the
naga as a playable race. :P

6.6.- Blood Elves.

The Blood Elves are controlled by the player during a few missions
of the first campaign. They are bassically the same as the High
Elves on ROC, though they are a lot more similar to humans. A list
of the Alliance units available to the Blood Elves:

- Priests.
- Sorcerer.
- Dragon Hawk.

6.6.1.- Exclusive Units.

Blood Elves units are exactly the same as alliance units (save the
Archers, which emulate the Night Elves Archers, minus the Infravision
upgrade), so I will just list them here without much fuzz.

NOTE: The Workers and the Engineers are actually the same thing.

6.7.- Draenei.

The mysterious Draenei, only a memory before this game, are back
with a vengeance. Lost and thought to be extinct before the first
game, and with all probabilities of survival decimated by the
apocalypse in Draenor during the WC II expansion, you get the
chance to use them during the Alliance Campaign. Designed mostly
for stealth, the Draenei, while not so overpowered like the
Naga, are a powerful and effective race.

Note that all of this info was painfully collected via the World
Editor, as you never get the actual chance to build a base
and units with them during the regular game. Furthermore, there
are more Draenei Units, though they are used only as creeps, and
are not part of the Draenei playable race.

The Demolisher, 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. Funcionally identical to the Orcish
Demolisher.

(NOTE: The stats might be wrong. This are the stats of the Orcish
Demolisher, and I suspect it might be the same, unfortunately, gathering
data for the Draenei Units is notably difficult as you don't get the
chance to manage a Draenei base)

Armed with Slow, Healing Wave, and a strong ranged attack, plus level

the best caster in the game. Unfortunately, it's unavailable for the
player. :(

6.7.2.- Heroes.

The only Draenei Hero is the Elder Sage, Akama himself.

ELDER SAGE

Permanently cloaked, with Shadow Strike AND Chain Lightning, plus Feral
Spirit, you can tell easily that the Elder Sage is an all out assassin.
With all those stealthy and disabling spells, taking out enemy heroes is
a breeze, and it's also a good front-attacker, only if he wasn't that
freaking vulnerable.

In my opinion, he could have been an interesting Neutral Hero.

HERO TYPE: Specialist Hero.

PROS: Powerful spells, difficult to kill if used correctly. Reincarnation.
Shadows Strike is a bad joke combined with cloaking (That much has DOTA
taught me). Really high damage output.
CONS: Hmmm... REALLY low HP for a hero with _melee_ damage.
BEST PAIRED WITH: N/A
BEST ARMY: He melds perfectly with his own units.

STATS (for each level gained. No items or tomes used)

NOTE: Akama's Strenght is actually modified in the campaign. His strenght
is notably lower actually.

ABILITIES

CHAIN LIGHTNING

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.

FERAL SPIRIT

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.

SHADOW STRIKE

Very damaging ability which not only damages, but it also
slows down the affected unit and causes damage over time. Great
hero-killer spell and perhaps the best choice over Fan of
Knives. The poison effect it's, however, dispellable. Is
that even a word?

LEVEL 1: 75 initial damage, 15/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .
LEVEL 2: 150 initial damage, 30/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .
LEVEL 3: 225 initial damage, 45/damage each 3 seconds, movement speed
	   slowed by 50% .


REINCARNATION

What else is there to be said about the Reincarnation? This is simply the
best passive ability in the game. Revive the elder? 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 Elder Sage will be revived automatically.

6.7.3.- Buildings.

Well, while writing this section I realized that Draenei buildings have
an abnormally high ammount of HP.

NOTE: I couldn't find any hard info about the Hut (the farm equivalent).
All of the huts I could find on the World Editor is the neutral
non-functional building. Any help will be appreciated.

It's recommended to build at least two of them if you plan on using
any of its units, as it effectively doubles your capacity to build units.

6.8.- Neutral Heroes.

a)DARK RANGER

A cunning Hero, adept at manipulating opponents. Forcibly raised from
the dead, the former Rangers of Quel'Thalas enjoy nothing more than
sowing dissension and hatred within the enemy ranks.

I've really had very good experiences with the Dark Ranger as a purely
offensive hero armed with lots of damage items. Even by herself, she can
put up a mighty fight by picking off weaker units and assembling an army,
or simply charming them. Unfortunately, in lower levels and if not really
taken care of, she will be weak. A Natural fit for Undead players as she
is undead herself.

HERO TYPE: Offensive support.

PROS: Great damage output, wonderful spells, can build up an army by herself,
rarely killed, easy to escape. Can disable enemy casters so easily it isn't
even funny. Counters basically all the most powerful heroes.
CONS: Weak as hell in the first levels. Level one Dark Arrow is lame. Very
easy to kill if not used as a main hero. While it is a very offensive hero,
she is not suited to take on bases alone. She can counter all she wants,
but she's perhaps the worst Hero killer in the game.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Pandaren Brewmaster, Mountain King, Death Knight,
Blademaster or Demon Hunter / Wander.
BEST ARMY: Abominations, Taurens... heavy melee units.

ABILITIES

SILENCE

Silence is a powerful spell in order to counter Humans and Orcs and
their ability driven heroes and units, as it renders the affected
units unable to cast spells. While 12 seconds seems like a ridiculous
low time (that's the time working on a hero), it's more than enough
to disable them. On a side note, I've been successfully made Night Elf
players use the Priestess of the Moon on any maps with a tavern, as
this ability completely shuts down both the Warden and the Demon Hunter.

LEVEL 1: 15 second silence, short radius.
LEVEL 2: 20 second silence, medium radius.
LEVEL 3: 24 second silence, large radius.

BLACK ARROW

An interesting ability that mirrors the Priestess of the Moon's Searing
Arrows and the Naga (or the Ranger) Ice Arrows, while a lot more
underpowered early on. It will add damage to the attacks, as well as put
hit enemies into a special stat that lasts a few seconds, under which,
should they die, a Dark Minion will emerge under the Dark Ranger's
control.

LEVEL 1: 2 extra damage, 215 Lesser Dark minion.
LEVEL 2: 10 extra damage, 290 Dark Minion.
LEVEL 3: 20 extra damage, 405 Greater Dark Minion.

LIFE DRAIN

This spell will drain life of the affected unit until it escapes its
range (which is rather short, 80). That said, it's difficult to use, and
often not quick enough to save you from death, prompting its use at
difficult to time moments (at around 40% of the DR life it's optimal).
Lasts eight seconds. That said, the ammount of damage done is ridiculous,
200 HP at first level, 320 at level 2 and 500 at level 3.

LEVEL 1: 25 HP per second drained.
LEVEL 2: 40 HP per second drained.
Level 3: 55 HP per second drained.

CHARM:

Ah, the premier ability of the Dark Ranger is one of the most powerful
spells of the game. Often difficult to use, but always worth it. Always
aim it at either the bigger units or the Spellcasters.

ULTIMATE: Takes control of target enemy unit permanently.

b)PANDAREN BREWMASTER

Hailing from the secretive Pandaren Empire, the mighty brewmasters travel
the world in search of exotic ales and the finest brewed spirits. These
affable warriors rarely seek out danger or trouble, preferring instead to
spend their time concocting new and tasty beverages for any brave enough
to imbibe them. However, if attacked, the laughing brewmasters bring all
of their pandaren agility and ferocity to bear! They are peerless warriors
and world class drinkers all in one!

The Pandaren Brewmaster is a very easy to use hero which can be a worthy
addition to any army due to his naturaly high strenght and useful spells.
He, however, suffers from the same problem as the Tauren Chieftain: Is
hellish big and slow, but, unlike the cow, the Brewmaster can definitely
deal with it since his spells are much more powerful. And, for the hell
of it: The dude is a friggin' panda.

HERO TYPE: Leading offensive hero.

PROS: Lots of defense, HP and attack power. A couple wonderful spells.
It's a jack for all trades and is very easy to use.
CONS: Slow, difficult to manouver, one infinitely useless spell. It's
a definitely all-round hero, which doesn't gives it the upper edge anywhere.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Dark Ranger, Warden.
BEST ARMY: Ranged units.

ABILITIES

BREATH OF FIRE

Breath of fire deals damage to a cone of enemies in front of the Brewmaster.
The damage isn't really surprising (actually very low), but when first hit
with Drunken Haze, the enemies will catch on fire, dealing double the damage
over a few seconds. Difficult to maintain given the mana cost, but powerful.

NOTE: The special after the slash is only after Drunken Haze.

LEVEL 1: 65 damage / 7 damage per second burning
LEVEL 2: 125 damage /  14 damage per second burning
LEVEL 3: 170 damage / 21 damage per second burning

DRUNKEN HAZE

Slows down units, and causes them to miss. This is a thematically funny spell,
but alone it doesn't seems to work at all. Only combined with Breath of
Fire or other debuff spells (such as Slow, or Cripple)(Not Purgue) is worth
it. Lasts 12 seconds.

LEVEL 1: 15% movement speed decrease, 45% chance to miss
LEVEL 2: 30% movement speed decrease, 65% chance to miss
LEVEL 3: 50% movement speed decrease, 80% chance to miss

DRUNKEN BRAWLER

One of the best passive abilities in the game, Drunken Brawler gives you a
10% chance to deal critical damage *and* evasion! A must have!

LEVEL 1: 7% evasion, two times damage.
LEVEL 1: 14% evasion, three times damage.
LEVEL 3: 21% evasion, four times damage.

STORM, EARTH AND FIRE

(HEED MY CALL!!!)

One of the coolest attacks, The Brewmaster's ultimate is probably one of
the strongest ultimates in the game. The real deal lies in the fact that
only one of the pandas needs to survive in order to have the hero back.

Check out the miscelleneous unit section for more info about Storm, Earth
and Fire, the units. Up front, Storm is a caster, Earth is a Tank, and Fire
is a killer.

ULTIMATE: Split into three specialized units for a full minute, upon
which, if any of the three units is alive, the Hero will be reborn.

c) GOBLIN TINKER

Goblins are known for their mechanical expertise and clever, though
sometimes peculiar, inventions, and the Tinker is certainly no exception.
With his Claw-Pack/Hammer-Tank combo, the Tinker's ingenuity is undeniable.
Though his parts may sometimes fail and the occasional explosion does
occur, the spirit and enthusiasm of this Hero are never diminished.
There truly is more to the Goblin Tinker than meets the eye!

I love the Tinker. While it isn't the best hero in the world, he's a
mighty powerful base destroyer, and it's easy and fun to use. His
abilities take awhile to get used to (I, for example, still can't
get the Pocket Factory to work), but it's a fresh adition and works
for any race.

A thing to note, though: He's a mystic hero... but he has a melee
attack. Be careful with him. He has very high stats, though.

HERO TYPE: Specialist and demolisher hero.

PROS: Starts with high armor, Cluster Rockets is a versatile spell.
One of the best ultimates in the game, sinergistic abilities. Lots
of HP for an intelligence based hero. Buildings aren't safe with
him around. VERY high stats.
CONS: Difficult to use and get used to. Pocket Factory isn't as
cheap. While you can use Cluster Rockets to chase down enemies,
sometimes you want a little more bang for your buck.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Firelord, or other heavy ranged heros.
BEST ARMY: Ranged units.

ABILITIES

POCKET FACTORY

Sets up a pocket factory, which will automatically create Clockwerk Goblins,
small and weak units that will explode upon death. I haven't been able to
make it work alright, but I've seen some people causing havock with it.
Clockwerk Goblins' explosion damage raises with each level.

LEVEL 1: 30 damage
LEVEL 2: 60 damage
LEVEL 3: 80 damage

CLUSTER ROCKETS

Deals damage and stuns enemies for a single second. Useful to interrupt
spells, and to chase down enemies. While the damage is very low, its
cooldown time (6 seconds!) allows for a barrage of rockets to be
shoot very quickly. Powerful stuff.

LEVEL 1: 30 damage, stun.
LEVEL 2: 65 damage, stun.
LEVEL 3: 100 damage, stun.

ENGINEERING UPGRADE

Another powerful passive unit, it not only adds damage and movement speed
to the Tinker, it also improves his other abilities! This and your ability
of choice. You won't regret it.

As for the changes, it enhaces the Cluster Rocket's area of effect, the
Pocket Factory building speed and the Demolish ability and the armor of
the Robo Goblin.

LEVEL 1: 10% Movement speed, +2 damage.
LEVEL 1: 20% Movement speed, +4 damage.
LEVEL 3: 30% Movement speed, +6 damage.

ROBO-GOBLIN

It turns the Tinker into a huge tank, turning Mechanical in nature, and
earning bonus strenght and armor (with Engineering Upgrade level 3,
that's 11 extra strenght and four extra armor!), and the Demolish ability,
which will make your attacks deal 3.5 times the normal damage against
buildings.

You can also repair him while on that state.

The Tinker can turns for 25 mana into Robo and regular form. Take
advantage of that to heal him or to avoid spells.

ULTIMATE: Turn into the Robo-Goblin aquiring 8 extra strenght, extra armor
and the Demolish ability (twice times the damage against buildings).

d) GOBLIN ALCHEMIST

In this unconventional pairing, a fanatical Goblin master rides on the
back of his Ogre slave. Despite undergoing a series of chemical "treatments"
to enforce compliance, the Ogre sometimes shows signs of independence and
even outright defiance. However, these outbursts are swiftly quelled by
the Goblin master, who can be like his concoctions -- harsh and volatile.
Though personal differences may at times distract this duo, when it comes
to biological warfare and raw, brute strength, the Goblin Alchemist and
his Ogre slave are truly at the top of their game!

While the Alchemist moveset isn't very interesting or attractive, what
abilities don't tell you (Unlike EVERY SINGLE OTHER HERO), is that
the Alchemist has the HIGHEST attack damage and the HIGHEST HP in the
game for all the heroes, surpasing even the Tauren Chieftain in that
regard. That, coupled with his Chemical Rage and his Acid Bomb ability,
turns him into a one-man army, capable of tear through enemies like
a hot knife through butter. A powerful first pick, and, if you didn't
had to wait a few minutes before picking him, he would be the best
hero in the game, for he's mighty at harrassing.

HERO TYPE: Leading attack hero.

PROS: Ridiculous attack power and HP. Extremely damaging and
difficult as hell to stop. Good (If not spectacular) support
abilities, and a funny ultimate.
CONS: Doesn't really helps your army too much (well, you
can use him as a healer, but...). His ultimate isn't really
that good or useful. Might not look too attractive to be a neutral
hero. Very low armor.
BEST PAIRED WITH: DREADLORD!!!... or Paladin.
BEST ARMY: Any, though air units might benefit from the meat tank.

ABILITIES

HEALING SPRAY

Shoots up 3, 4 o 5 spray waves that heal units caught in the area of
effect.  All units, not only allies ¬_¬. Not very useful, since
healing is best used in the heat of battle.

LEVEL 1: 3 waves, heals 40 HP each
LEVEL 2: 4 waves, heals 55 HP each
LEVEL 3: 5 waves, heals 70 HP each

CHEMICAL RAGE

Very powerful ability, it increases your movement speed by 50% and your
attack speed by 25%, 75% or 125% depending of your level. That, coupled
with the Alchemist naturally absurd attack power, turns the Alchemist
into a monster. Last 15 seconds, but the cooldown is only 30 seconds.

(That means only 15 seconds between rages ^_^)

LEVEL 1: 25% attack rate increase
LEVEL 2: 75% attack rate increase
LEVEL 3: 125% attack rate increase

ACID BOMB

Damages all enemies caught in the splash area over time, and reduces
their armor. The damage is lessened on the edges of the area of effect.
It's pretty good for softening up your next target. Lasts 15 seconds.

LEVEL 1: 5 max damage per second, -3 armor
LEVEL 1: 10 max damage per second, -4 armor
LEVEL 3: 15 max damage per second, -5 armor

TRANSMUTE

Instantly kills target non-hero, and non-creep-above-level-5, and turns
it into gold for you. It is quite good, but not very useful (not something
you'd expect from a level 6 killing machine). As you could guess, you get
more money from killing more expensive units (I.E: A lot more money if
you kill a Tauren - around 300 - than if you kill a Ghouls - around 20 -).

ULTIMATE: Kill target unit, turn into gold added to your reserves.

e) FIRELORD *

Long ago, when the world was in a state of constant turmoil, the Elementals
(Earth, Wind, Fire and Water) faithfully served their Old-God masters. When
the Old Gods were defeated by the coming of the Titans, the Elementals were
banished to an alternate plane of existence. Over time the world became Azeroth,
where Human wizards learned how to call back the Elementals through the art
of summoning. The Firelord is one of these liberated Elementals. Consumed by
hatred for all organic life, he roams the world he once called home, sewing
chaos, wreaking vengeance, and inflicting pain with extreme prejudice.

The Firelord is a difficult to use hero, and he doesn't really pays back
too much once you get around his limited mana pool at lower levels and
overcosted spells. He looks very powerful on paper, but unless you devote all
of your time to him, he won't even stand up to regular units. That said,
his Ultimate is quite powerful, but he's an easy target for more damaging
heroes, such as the Mountain King or the Demon Hunter.

His spells are, that said, incredibly powerful, amongst the best in the
game. If only he had more mana, he would be the best hero in the game.

(I have a funny history of a Goblin Alchemist chasing a Firelord across
the map as well)

HERO TYPE: Support hero.

PROS: Damaging spells, great summon, powerful ultimate. Looks really cool :P
CONS: Overcosted spells, difficult to use, easy to kill due to his low HP.
Abysmal stats.
BEST PAIRED WITH: ... Difficult to say. I'd say the Archmage.
BEST ARMY: Heavy units, preferably Taurens or Abominations.

ABILITIES

SOUL BURN

Damages a unit over time, while preventing casting of spells, and
halving attack damage. Powerful, but really out of character. Okay,
I can't hide my dislike of this hero. :(

LEVEL 1: 100 damage over 14 seconds.
LEVEL 2: 225 damage over 16 seconds.
LEVEL 3: 375 damage over 18 seconds.

SUMMON LAVA SPAWN

Summons a Lava Spawn (duh), which is a pretty good unit, which
has a special trait, that they split after 15 attacks, creating
two different Lava Spawns. Interesting ability.

LEVEL 1: 425 Hit Points, 13-37 damage.
LEVEL 1: 575 Hit Points, 21-45 damage.
LEVEL 1: 700 Hit Points, 32-56 damage.

INCINERATE

Kinda like Searing Arrows, but much more powerful, this adds a
little bonus to damage, but units affected will receive extra
damage, which is cumulative, and can really add up. When
the affected unit dies, it will cause an explosive which will hurt
ONLY enemy units. The downside is the high MP cost, and the naturally
low MP pool of the Firelord.

LEVEL 1: 1 bonus damage, 30 incineration damage.
LEVEL 2: 2 bonus damage, 45 incineration damage.
LEVEL 3: 3 bonus damage, 60 incineration damage.

VOLCANO

Massively powerful channeling attack, which every five seconds
will cause molten rocks to erupt from the volcano, damaging for
100 damage and stunning for two seconds nearby unit, while dealing
twice the damage to buidings. Last 35 seconds.

ULTIMATE: Causes a volcano to erupt from the location. Last 35
	    seconds.

f)NAGA SEA WITCH

A mystical Hero, adept at ranged combat. These scaly denizens of the ocean
have often been associated with the coming of prodigious storms, but few
have actually seen them rise from the sea and lived to tell the tale.

The Naga is a wonderful if not impressive hero (kinda like the Far Seer),
which can spell a lot of problems with her Frost Arrows and Forked
Lightning, or play a bit more defensive with her Mana Shield. Either
way, she's quite powerful as a hero killer or as a support, depending
on how you build her. A good choice for first or second hero.

HERO TYPE: Ranged Support / Hero Killer.

PROS: Frost arrows could be enough of a reason to get her. Powerful
attack power, lots of good abilites, powerful ultimate, she's the
most disrupting hero in the game.
CONS: Low HP, needs a lot of mana to function correctly.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Beastmaster, Mountain King, Warden, Tauren Chieftain,
Crypt Lord.
BEST ARMY: Knights or Mountain Giants.

ABILITIES

FORKED LIGHTNING

A good attack, it will home on three units, dealing damage to
them on a range. Pretty basic, but extremely disrupting as it
deals regular damage to different units, making healing more
difficult. Really good to get rid of units in the middle of
the battle, when units are damaged.

LEVEL 1: 85 damage per unit.
LEVEL 2: 160 damage per unit.
LEVEL 3: 250 damage per unit.

FROST ARROWS

The most powerful weapon on the Sea Witch Arsenal, it will
slow down the target unit's attack and movement, making
them either useless on combat, or unable to escape properly.
It even gives extra damage. Most powerful attack-affecting
spell.

LEVEL 1: +5 damage, 30% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.
LEVEL 2: +10 damage, 50% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.
LEVEL 3: +15 damage, 70% reduction on attack rate and movement
	    speed.

MANA SHIELD

Really abusable spell with the right items (namely lots of
MP recovering items or items that increase MP regeneration),
but only powerful on level 3. It will absorb damage, taking
away a proportional ammount of MP.

LEVEL 1: 1 damage per point of mana.
LEVEL 1: 1.5 damage per point of mana.
LEVEL 3: 2 damage per point of mana.

TORNADO

Another one of those "if it wasn't channeling" spells, the Tornado
sends out massive damage to building, slows down units, and even
sends some of them flying around at random.

One thing people tend to miss is the fact that you can control
the Tornados. They aren't really all that responsive, but it can
spell the difference between taking out that tower, or losing the
spell.

ULTIMATE: Creates Tornados.

NOTE: This ability is particulary weird. Stay tuned for more info.

g) PIT LORD *

A warrior hero, exceptional at weakening enemies and melee combat. These
massive Demons take sadistic pleasure from instilling crazed terror, and
then slaughtering their enemies.

It's difficult to say if I like or not the Pit Lord. While on ROC he
was a ridiculously overpowered and dominant hero, he has been logically
weakened and even given a new model. He is really damaging and has
interesting abilities, but his mana pool is really limited and he's
quite difficult to control in the heat of battle, and tends to die
despite his massive HP level. A natural fit for undead like the
Dark Ranger (also makes a pretty good companion to that one, which
is something difficult to manage as well).

Something to note is that the Pit Lord has two builds depending on
how much "protagonism" you want to give him. Either choosing Rain of
Fire OR Howl gives him two very different roles on the battlefield,
making him the most versatile hero in the game, for whatever's
worth. This is probably why he isn't really used a lot: for a melee
strenght hero, he requires a lot of foresight to use him effectively.

HERO TYPE: Tank Hero.

PROS: Powerful attack, interesting abilities. Attracts fire like it's
going out of style. Extremely powerful ultimate. Very versatile.
CONS: Bulky. Limited MP. Difficult to play. His ultimate can't be used
on heroes or level 6+ creeps. Overly reliant on his spells to be
effective.
BEST PAIRED WITH: The Tauren Chieftain makes a great partner due to
his aura, but he works great with ranged heroes (*coughLichcough*)
BEST ARMY: Ranged units.

ABILITIES

RAIN OF FIRE

Similar to Blizzard, Rain of Fire also ignites the affected
creatures (your own units as well) for a few seconds. This is one of
the Pit Lord builds (Rain/Cleave/Rain/Cleave/Rain/Doom) and forces
him to become a secondary support hero. It's an interesting strategy
(keeping him back with your weaker units to protect them), but it's
notably more difficult to control. Better suited against low HP
based races, the Undead and most notably the Night Elves. It has a
damage cap when it hits more than five units. Channeling spell.

LEVEL 1: 25 per wave, 6 waves, 5 damage/second, 125 max damage cap.
LEVEL 2: 30 per wave, 8 waves, 10 damage/second, 150 max damage cap.
LEVEL 3: 35 per wave, 10 waves, 15 damage/second, 175 max damage cap.

HOWL OF TERROR

Similar to Roar, but a reverse one. It's devastating against high
damaging units such as Knights or Abominations. This is the other
build, which is suited to turn him into your main hero, throwing him
in the heat of battle, better suited against Humans and Orcs due
to their reliance on heavy hitters to deal the main damage. Easier
to play with, but perhaps less effective, though is necesary against
those races.

Howl of Terror must be maintained for its full effect, don't forget
to keep it active during the whole battle, as both races it's effective
against excel on unit preservation.

LEVEL 1: 30% damage reduction.
LEVEL 2: 40% damage reduction.
LEVEL 3: 50% damage reduction.

CLEAVE

Finally an ability I don't have to write a lot about. This passive
ability is the icing on the cake, as it gives splash damage to the Pit
Lord's already massive damage output.

LEVEL 1: 30% splash damage.
LEVEL 1: 55% splash damage.
LEVEL 3: 80% splash damage.

DOOM

Where is my BFG9000?

Okay, a bad joke.

Doom deals 40 damage per second to the target, and will spawn a Doom
Guard when it dies (if it does). It last 180 seconds. It can target
both enemy or allied units (important to remember that one, as it
can turn your near-dead unit into the monstruous Doom Guard), and
it cannot be dispelled. Doom it's a very powerful spell, but suffers
greatly from not being able to be cast on heroes or creeps above
level 5. Remember the Doom Guard is arguably the most powerful unit
in the game!

ULTIMATE: Puts target unit into Doom status.

h) BEASTMASTER *

A warrior Hero, able to call forth the creatures of the forest to
serve him. These lone wandering forest dwellers come from all backgrounds
and cultures, seeking the essence of combat through the mimicry of wild
beasts.

In the weird (but ultimately right) form of a Strenght hero, comes
a much asked for summoner hero. A great choice for NE due to the
sinergy between his summons, limited mana pool and Moon Wells, the
Beastmaster was once considered the strongest (cheese) hero due
to that interaction until his summons were a bit weakened, as well
as his ultimate. He remains a predictable choice for NE players,
and some HU due to his ability to remain as a tank while playing
support.

Look for the stats for the summons on the <currently under
construction> misceleneaous units section.

HERO TYPE: Support Tank Hero.

PROS: Great summons. Quillbeast summons deals a hellish lot of
damage. Powerful attacks, interesting (if unwielding) ultimate.
Versatile choice. Lots of HP and good stats.
CONS: Limited MP. Has the natural weakness of being a neutral
hero, and as such, difficult to make a main hero, and difficult
to keep up with your other heroes about level.
BEST PAIRED WITH: Archmage or Demon Hunter. (The Keeper of the
Grove also makes an interesting pair)
BEST ARMY: Ranged units, or spellcasters.

ABILITIES

SUMMON BEAR

The tank summon, the bear is more effective at lower levels due to his
high HP and his ability to deal more damage. However, the cooldown and
mana cost makes him a lot less useful in the late game, loosing to the
more versatile and damaging Quillbeast.

Of course, you can't beat a teleporting bear. :\

LEVEL 1: Summons a bear.
LEVEL 2: Summons a bear with Bash.
LEVEL 3: Summons a bear with Base and Blink.

Seriously, BLINK? Whatever gave them that idea?

SUMMON QUILLBEAST

The most offensive summon, the Quillbeast starts out rather weak, but
on level three the damage done is tremendous and the cooldown and mana
cost is a lot better costed for the long run. Furthermore, players
tend to ignore Quillbeasts for some reason (That reason being probably that
the Quillbeast doesn't do much sound), ignoring as well the damage dealt.

LEVEL 1: Summons a Quillbeast.
LEVEL 2: Summons a Quillbeast with Frenzy.
LEVEL 3: Summons a Quillbeast with Frenzy and splash damage.

SUMMON HAWK

The scout (it doesn't has an attack on the first level), it's a good
chasing unit due to its speed. Otherwise, not very attractive.

LEVEL 1: Summons a hawk.
LEVEL 1: Summons a hawk with an attack.
LEVEL 3: Summons a hawk with an attack and permanent invisibility.

STAMPEDE

Summons a bunch of thunder lizards, which explode upon hitting something
on a very large area, dealing 60 damage. Very damaging, though being a
channeling spell hurts it dearly.

ULTIMATE: Summons an Stampede.

6.9.- Misceleanous units.

6.9.1.- Storm, Earth and Fire.

Summoned (or rather transformed from) the Pandaren Brewmaster with his
ultimate, these three units last 60 seconds. If all of them are killed, the
Brewmaster himself will die, but if one survives, your Brewmaster will be
back. They share the same soundset of the Brewmaster, but with different
pitches. They are all actually biological units, so they won't be harmed
by the likes of Dispel.

	 Attack Type	: Ranged Piercing
	 Armor		: 2
	 Armor Type		: Heavy
	 Speed		: Fast
	 Attack Speed	: Average
	 Clasification	: Biological

More or less the spell caster of the group, Storm comes with Dispel, Wind
Walk and Cyclone, plus Resistant Skin. I like to Cyclone away dangerous units,
then have him either run away or keep him on the edge of the battle, to
ensure my Pandaren survives.

	 Clasification	: Biological

The tank of the group. Has Taunt, Resistant Skin *and* Spell Immunity, as
well as Pulverize, making him the best thing to suck up the damage after
the Mountain Giant. Has more HP than the Brewmaster himself at level 10. :S

	 Clasification	: Biological

With Resistant Sking, Permanent level one Immolation, and a massive damage
output, this unit is perfectly suited to go in, and deal damage. Lots of
it. that said, its HP level is the lower out of all of the Storm, Earth
and Fire incarnations, but it's still pretty high.

6.9.2.- Neutral Heroes Summons.

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

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 Flying Machine'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*

<UNDER CONSTRUCTION, MISSING CREEPS EXCLUSIVE FOR THE FROZEN THRONE>

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 search 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, (1.7 with TFT)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
and their moms but me (and probably my mom)).
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. In clear
english for the not hardcore-ier than thou heroes, that means that a Tauren
Chieftain with Endurance aura will not get any benefit from a Jangoo of
Endurance, for example.
NOTE II: I still 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. This affected the Map Editor.
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.
NOTE V: Some items were changed for the Frozen Throne. For instance, the Orbs
add anti-air attack to the hero holding them. I might have missed some, though
it is unlikely.
*IMPORTANT* NOTE VI: Items work differently in the Frozen Throne. They have
a cooldown time after they were used, and you won't be able to use the same
item for that brief time.

                     level 10 item. I'm guiding myself through the regular
                     level listed by the map editor, but these inconsistences,
                     though not important - the level only means how difficult

                    worlds have the Burning Legion conquered? Could the Demons

                     that he 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).

                     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.

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.

| TERROR OF THE TIDES |
|_____________________|

The Night Elf Campaign revolves mostly on Maeiv's Quest hunting Illidan,
and her righteous attitidue will provide an interesting plot twist at the
end. Starts up easy and ends up rather difficult.

|__________________|

Though the Demonlord, Archimonde, and the Burning Legion were finally
defeated at the battle of Mount Hyj'al, much of the forests remain
tainted by the foul, demonic energies. The combined effort of the druids
and the Sentinel have brought a tenous peace to the northlands, but
dark creatures still lurk in the shadowy woods. In this perillious
time, Maeiv Shadowsong, the Warden who once guarded Illidan's barrow
prison, has come forth to hunt her dangerous prey-- and chain him once
again beneath the cold earth.

MAIN QUESTS: THE DEMON'S TRAIL
QUESTS       - Follow Illidan's trail
             - Maeiv must survive

             BURNING SHIPS
             - Save at least two ships
             - Maeiv must survive

OPTIONAL   : ENRAGED BEAST
             - Slay the Wildkin

             SEARCH AND RESCUE
             - Search and rescue

ITEMS FOUND: Rune of Mana x10
             Rune of Lesser Healing x3
		 Jade Ring
             Tome of Agility
             Rune of Greater Healing
             Tome of Intelligence +2
             Tome of Strenght
             Tome of Intelligence
             Ring of Protection
		 Claws of Attack +3
             Spider Ring


STARTING   : Maeiv (Level 2 Warden hero)
FORCES	 Archer x3
		 Naisha*

*Naisha is a slightly buffed up Huntress slightly bigger and with a
different palet. If she dies, she can't be resurrected as she's not a hero.
Her fate doesn't makes any difference to the game.

HINT: Blink, blink, blink everywhere. There are *lots* of secrets to be
found using Maeiv's Blink.

This stage sets you with Maeiv on the trail of Illidan. Go north, and
you will be faced by a few Mur'gul Cliffrunners(level 1).  Go through the
door and you will see a cutscene. After that, take on the Furbolgs (level 4),
and go west, (watch out for the two Furbolgs). You will be ambushed by three
level 1 Satyrs, and one level 3 Satyr Trickster. Deal with them the way you
see fit. Go north and you will receive reinforcements and the ENRAGED BEAST
OPTIONAL QUEST. We will complete this in a second.

Push north and deal with the Mur'gul there. They are around the waterfalls.
Now go east and you will see the enraged Wildkin. Chase it. You will face
two Wilkin level 4 and the one Berserker Wildkin, level 8, which is a pain
in the ass, and you can expect to lose a unit here. It leaves a
Tome of Agility.

Further in the road, you will meet up with a group of Naga. Prior to that,
is a Rune of Greater Healing. Try to leave it for after the battle, as
the Naga are really tough.

NOTE: There is a Mur'gul Clam Seashucker or something similar. This is
the only time in the game you ever see one of these.

Go west now to find some more Mur'guls and some more Satyrs. You will receive
the SEARCH AND RESCUE OPTIONAL QUEST. Go north, and free the Night Elves.
There are several Satyrs, and a level 3 Satyr Shadowdancer.

Now go right, and destroy the gate. You will see Illidan escaping, and you
will receive the BURNING SHIPS MAIN QUEST. You must save at least two ships.
Quickly use Maeiv's Blink to reach the parties attacking the ships and kill
all the Naga. Use Maeiv to attract enemy fire, and kill the Couatls at once.
They are the most dangerous foe.Once all the Naga are dead, the mission is over.

The next day, on the shores of a mysterious island chain, Maeiv and her
Watchers inspect some ancient, yet strangely familiar ruins...

MAIN QUESTS: LOCATE ILLIDAN
             - Locate Illidan

             NAGA GUARDIANS
             - Kill the Naga guarding the Tomb of Sargeras

OPTIONAL   : SILENCE GHOSTS
QUESTS       - Destroy all three summoning pits
             - Bring the Skull Artifacts to Drak'Thar

ITEMS FOUND: Rune of Mana x3
             Pendant of Energy
		 Scroll of Healing
             Periapt of Vitality
		 Scroll of Protection
             Tome of Intelligence x3
		 Claws of Attack +6
		 Maul of Strenght

STARTING   : Maeiv
FORCES	 Naisha
             Archer x3
             Wisp x12

NOTE: you can build ships on this mission. Abuse them.

Start by building a couple Ancient Protectors to the west of your base. It
will do you good. The Naga will send in small punishment groups to scourge
in your base every once in awhile. Also, build four or five Archers
and keep it to the north.

Once your defense is secure get a ship and start to explore. There are
several creeps and items around. To the north is an Orcish Warlock who'll
ask you for help. Talk to him and you will receive the SILENCE THE GHOST
OPTIONAL QUEST, which asks you to destroy the summoning pits located
directly north of your base.

There are skeletal orcs battling. Ignore them and destroy the summoning pits,
which will otherwise keep reinforcing the fallen orcs.

To the northeast of the map lies a library you might find interesting. Blink
around the walls for more items. In the center of the map is a Mercenary
Camp. South of your base, a Goblin Hut.

Now, there are two Naga Bases around. The west one, which is small and easy
to take on, and the north one, which is pretty difficult to deal with. Start
with the red one, attacking with lots of Huntress.

Now, mass Archers and strike the purple one. this is noticeably more
difficult, since the have Coautls in there. Make sure to have lot of Archers,
and use the ships you may have to attack, since the whole base is built in
shallow water. Once you destroy it, you will receive the NAGA GUARDIANS MAIN
QUEST.

Destroy the gate and face the six Myrmidons and two Sirens to finish the
Mission.

             Huntress
             Archer x3

NOTE: MORE THAN EVER BEFORE: USE BLINK!
NOTE: Don't let Naisha die on this mission.

Start by going north and deal with the skeletal orcs and the Necrolyte
(level 6) there. Recover the items and then go east from the starting
postion. From there, use blink to get the items, and continue the road.

From that position, head west, and pass the two gates. Obliterate everything
there (there is a level 7 Pit Lord), and take note of the ledge there. Now,
head back to the two (now non-existent) doors, and head south. Eliminate the
two Fel Stalkers (level 3), and use Maeiv to blink where you WILL see a Rune.
There you will find a few Skeletons, and follow the corridor, where a
Skeletal champion will attack you (Level 3). From there you will see
two items in the ledge I told you to take note of. One of those is
a piece of the Shadow Orb, which will start the SHADOW ORB OPTIONAL
QUEST. This quest will be completed during the whole mission, but it's
very rewarding if very time consuming.

Continue through the corridor where we fought the Fel Stalkers, and
follow the stairs. You will notice a few rocks. Maeiv will then start the
BARRIERS OPTIONAL QUEST. Attack the chunks to receive two Druids of the
Claw. Step on the switch.

Now, follow the cave where the Druids came from and use blink to teleport
to where the bats are. There is another shadow orb piece.

Backtrack to the switch and head north. Blink to the left ledge, and
attack the creeps. Third orb piece is there. From there, blink to the
left edge, and then blink to the plataform where the Slime Hurler (level 5)
is. From there you can blink to the leftmost ledge, and you will
find the fourth orb piece. Head north from there, and kill them Mur'guls
there. Go west and you will find a few hydras, turtles and the such.
Only the Elder Hydra (level 7) shall pose any trouble. From the elder
Hydra, blink to the right ledge for the fifth orb piece. Northwest are
three smaller hydras, to the left is another ledge with a rune of mana,
and the sixth Shadow Orb fragment.

You might have noticed the rocks. Two dryads will come.

Head east and you will find a few more hydras. Blink to the north to
kill a lone Turtle, which will leave another Shadow Orb.

Keep going east. You will find a cutscene then you will have to deal with
a few Naga. Target the Myrmidon First and that will be easy.

East again. Another chunks of rock will give you two Druids of the Talon
and complete the BARRIERS OPTIONAL QUEST. North is a single hydra which you
have to reach by blinking with Maeiv. Destroy the crates to find the eighth
shadow orb fragment. Now, head south where a few Naga sirens will attack.
East will show you even more naga. Head through the gate after the cutscene.
Now, south of here, besides some rocks, is the final Shadow Orb fragment,
but it's difficult to get. Run around until you can see a bit of ground,
and blink there.

NOTE: With the complete Orb, Maeiv becomes a walking monster. Use and abuse
her immense strenght, and she's not as fragile as before. The thing gives
+10 attack power, +3 armor and +2 or so HP regeneration per second.

Head east, and face the group of Naga. Use the Druids of the Talon Cyclone
on the Myrmidon for an easy kill.

Attack the door and a cutscene will ensue. After that, you have
three minutes to escape. Use Maeiv's ability to blink to escape quickly.
There will be many more monsters and many more items, but you can ignore
most of them if not all, and finish the mission sending her back to the
entrance.

Hours later, suffering from grievous wounds and exhaustation, Maeiv
stumbles back in the relative safety of her base camp.

MAIN QUESTS: THE RUNNER'S TRANSPORT
		 - Rescue the Night Elf Transports
		 - The Runner must survive
		 - Your base must survive

		  ESCAPE TO THE SEA
		 - Send the runner to open sea
		 - The Runner must survive
		 - Your base must survive

OPTIONAL   : NAGA EXCAVATORS
QUESTS       - Kill the Naga Excavators

ITEMS FOUND: Staff of Teleportation
             Orb of Slow
		 Glyph of Fortification
		 Staff of Negation
		 Mana Stone
		 Slippers of Agility +3
		 Talisman of Evasion

STARTING   : Maeiv (Level 5 Warden hero)
FORCES	 Druid of the Claw x4
             Archer x6
             Dryad x2
		 Huntress x5
		 Wisp x8
		 Runner

You must escort the runner to open sea. To do this, treat this as a regular
stage, and leave the Runner behind.

You cannot reinforce Maeiv's group, but she shouldn't need it (particulary
if you have the full Shadow Orb). Keep your base well-defended, as Naga will
eventually start attacking your base with rough groups and perhaps a level
4 Seawitch, which is a pain in the ass.

Start heading south with Maeiv. Kill the first Naga group you find, and you
will receive the useful Staff of Teleportation to send Maeiv around and
the NAGA EXCAVATORS OPTIONAL QUEST. This is the first excavation zone.

Keep following the track, and you will eventually receive a couple Huntress,
and then you will have to deal with the second excavation site.

Now keep heading north (Don't forget the defense at your base). You can blink
to get the great Glyph of Fortification. Now, head south and you will reach
the transports, as well as receiving a few units you will need.

Directly south are the two other excavation sites. Use Maeiv to deal with
them as soon as possible, as the Naga will be pounding in your base in
the meantime.

Grab the transports and load up. Use your Glaive Throwers to destroy the
towers and advance to the exit.

NOTE: Next stage will be a pain for Maeiv. Try to buy the Poison orb and
find the Stun Orb, which will make things a lot easier (not to mention
sky rocket her attack power)

The next day, at the shores of the Broken Isles, Maeiv and her Watchers
attempt to hold the line against Illidan's final strike...

MAIN QUESTS: MAEIV'S DISTRESS
		 - Reach Maeiv's Base
		 - Tyrande and Malfurion must survive

		 ILLIDAN'S MINIONS
		 - Destroy Illidan's Base

OPTIONAL   : NIGHT ELF SHIPS
QUESTS       - Reach the first ship
		 - Reach the second ship
		 - Reach the third ship

ITEMS FOUND: Tome of Strenght +2
		 Tome of Agility +2 x2 (And the second one's a toughie)
		 Tome of Intelligence +2
		 Rune of Mana
		 Bracer of Agility
		 Lesser Clarity Potion x2
		 Scroll of Mana
		 Scroll of Regeneration
		 Minor Replenishment potion
		 Circlet of Nobility
		 Moonstone
		 Scroll of Healing
		 Ring of Protection +3

STARTING   : Maeiv (Level 6 Warden hero)------------------
FORCES	 Huntress x6---------------------------------- AT MAEIV'S BASE
		 Archer x3------------------------------------
		 Wisp x5--------------------------------------
		 Tyrande (Level 10 Priestess of the Moon)--
		 Malfurion (Level 10 Keeper of the Grove)--
		 Archer x3--------------------------------- RESCUE GROUP
		 Huntress x2-------------------------------
		 Dryad-------------------------------------
		 Druid of The Claw x2----------------------

NOTE: The Staff of Teleportation is, sadly, lost at this stage.

Maeiv's base will be constantly under attack. You need to get Malfurion and
Tyrande quickly, or her demise will be undeniable. Fortunately, Tyrande and
Malfurion, both level 10, are quite strong and competent (Is funny how the
two weakest NE heroes are, storyline wise, the strongests out there).

The basic directives for this stage are to guard Maeiv's base (which, if you
completed the Shadow Orb quest two stages ago, shall not be that difficult),
and to guide Tyrande and Malfurion.

Start by exploring around, and tackling the weaker creeps you'll find. To
the north, you will find some ruins where the Naga will be introduced yet
again, and you will find some items. This will not pose major problems if
you keep your units alive by using both Regeneration and Tranquility.

Make sure to pick up all the gold coins you see. It's the only gold income
you will find for awhile, save for the creeps you kill.

After the ruins, keep going north, where you will be given the NIGHT ELF
FLEET OPTIONAL QUEST. Follow the road (And watch out for the Sea Giant
Behemot, level 8, which can stun your characters), until you find the
two War Golems. Ignore them for now and go down the road, and find the
circle of power, which will complete the first ship of the NIGHT ELF
FLEET OPTIONAL QUEST. Now, go back, and lay the smack down on the
Golems, which will only activate after you get near them.

Up ahead is the Naga base. Destroy it (and, for crying out loud, you have
two level 10 heroes). It could pay to use Maeiv's as a crutch if you
have any trouble. Once you destroy it, you will receive the ILLIDAN'S MINIONS
MAIN QUEST. For now, let's go get the reinforcements.

The Second Ship is north of your new base (Mountaing Giants!), and the third
one is south. Easy enough. Leave the MG at the base with Tyrande and
Malfurion, and they will easily ward off enemies. Not even Illidan should
be able to push through if you keep Entangling him.

Grab whatever forces you've got left, and group them with Maeiv, and
start exploring. There is another gold mine to the northeast, but you need
Malfurion's Force of Nature to get to it. Otherwise, the rest of the mission
is simply mop up. Gather a unit of Archers, an unit of Huntress, a few Dryads,
and your heroes, and it should be done rather quickly.

BTW, the second Tome of Agility (which is quite nasty to find) it's in the
lower section of the Naga base, blink to the ledge with the barrels.

MAIN QUESTS: ESCORT PRINCE KAEL AND HIS CARAVAN
		 - Lead the caravan across the river
		 - At least two supply wagons must survive
		 - Maeiv, Tyrande and Kael must survive

OPTIONAL   : RETRIEVE SUPPLIES
QUESTS       - Find the Hidden Caches

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of Mana
		 Wand of Mana Stealing
		 Rune of greater Healing
		 Potion of Mana
		 Scroll of Animate Dead
		 Rune of Lesser Healing
		 Potion of Replenishment
		 Boots of Quel'Talas +6

STARTING   : Maeiv (Level 7 Warden hero)
FORCES	 Tyrande (Level 10 Priestess of the Moon hero)
		 Druid of the claw x2
		 Mountain Giant x2

This is an interesting mission. You need to protect the supply wagons at all
costs. While Kael (Level 2 Blood Mage hero) will assist you, he's at a far
too low level to be of any real use, and is sure to piss you off with his
Firestorm spell. Try to keep your distance, but don't stray too far. Use
Maeiv to explore around.

Start by going south. Make sure to move swiftly, as more undead will appear
at periodic times.  Not much the undead will do, though, as many of the units
you will face at the start have magic damage- you Spirit of Vengeance will
be quite powerful against them.

Proceed further and you will meet a Mercenary camp and will be given the
RETRIEVE SUPPLIES OPTIONAL QUEST. Just ahead is a small undead post with a
level 1 Dreadlord. Destroy it and approach the Circle of power to find the
first of three hidden caches. Use the money to buy, preferably, Troll
High Priests, which will prove invaluable.

As you advance, you will reach a town where the caravan will be repaired
and a bit of chit chatting will occur. Further down the road, you will
reach another (slightly more difficult) Undead outpost. Just use Tyrande's
Starfall to deal with it easily, and reach the second cache.

Buy whatever mercenaries you see fit (I like the Kobold Task Master for its
aura), and continue north. You will have to deal with another level one
Dreadlord. As you go forward and reach another rest post, you will be
given the choice to go left or right. Either way, first go with Maeiv right,
and down then to get the final cache of resources.

- LEFT WAY: Which is easier but longer. There is, indeed, an undead base,
but it's nearly actionless. Only a few enemies, and that is. There are
a Boots of Quel'talas +6 near the Goblin store, but I'll leave you
up to the task to find out how to get them.

- RIGHT WAY: Has you going down with a full-fledged Undead Base with
yet another level one Dreadkid, *and* a level 3 Lich. Oh joy.

Either way is actually the same. As you reach the ruined town, you will
be attacked by many undead. Just stand next to the caravan, and use Tyrande's
starfall. As they are all killed (again), the mission is completed.

| THE RUINS OF DALARAN |
|______________________|

Later that evening, at the Night Elves base camp, Malfurion returns to
warn Maeiv and Tyrande of his brother's dangerous sorcery...

MAIN QUESTS: SPELL OF DESTRUCTION
		 - Destroy the summoners before the timer runs out
		 - Magic attacks and spells can damage the summoners

OPTIONAL   : FREE THE PALADIN
QUESTS       - Save the Paladin

ITEMS FOUND: Rune of Lesser Healing
		 Tome of Intelligence +2
		 Helm of Valor
		 (There are others, but they are very hard to get. On the
		  next version)

STARTING   : Malfurion (Level 10 Keeper of the Grove hero)
FORCES	 Maeiv (level 8 Warden hero)
		 Druid of the Claw x2
		 Druid of the Talon x2
             Archer x1
		 Huntress x2
		 Wisp x8
		 Chimera x1
		 Faerie Dragon x2
		 Mountain Giant x1

You've got thirty minutes to kill the four summoners. This a lot harder
that it seems, but you should take five minutes to complete the optional
quest (which is given automatically after a few minutes).

There is an easier way, which is using a Faerie Dragon to scout the area
where the Paladin (level 8) is being kept, and using Maeiv to blink there
and use her Spirit of Vengeance to free the hero. Otherwise you will
have to deal with all the enemies around, and, while you still have to
go back and deal with most of them, with the Paladin is a lot easier.

Now, this mission is, and I stress, *chaotic*. You need to move fast to
reach the summoners in time, though the tip the game gives you is the key:
MANA FLARE. This cheap ability will take out the summoners in about fifteen
seconds, but the problem is to keep the Faerie Dragons alive until you
reach them.

Ignore the undead. A few Huntress will deal with the attacks, and you
do not need to destroy their bases (on hard, though, you will require to
help Kael repel off the attacks. Use a full unit of Huntress as a strike
team and keep them grouped). Futhermore, you do not really want to deal
with two level 6 liches (your units have the LEAST HP of the game. Frost
Nova is really the best spell in the game, and you already know that.
You don't really want a proof.).

Take at least ten archers, a couple Druids of the Claw, and your three
heroes to the southern entrance to the Naga Base. Train at least eight
Faerie Dragons, and you might want to neglect the Chimeras. You will
need some time to get them, and time is not an abundant resource.

Build a second Ancient of War, and keep a constant influx of Archers
in order to keep the reinforcements coming.

With Malfurion's tranquility and the Paladin's Heal Light, keep your
units alive, and abuse Maeiv's Spirit of Vengeance. Once you reach the
summoners, sneak the Faerie Dragons, and use Mana Flare. Mission Accomplished.

|________________________|

Hours later, along the banks of River Arevass, Malfurion and Illidan work
together to pick up Tyrande's trail. Moving quickly through the woods,
their skills and senses start working in unison-- their twin wills bent on
finding their beloved priestess before it's too late.

MAIN QUESTS: TYRANDE'S RESCUE
		 - Use Malfurion's Forces to defend the Night Elf Base
		 - Use Illidan's Forces to destroy the red Undead Base

OPTIONAL   : DAM TROLLS
QUESTS       - Destroy the Trolls guarding the dam

ITEMS FOUND: Mask of Death
		 Crown of Kings +5
		 Rune of Restoration
		 Pendant of Mana
		 Healing Wards

STARTING   : Malfurion (Level 10 Keeper of the Grove hero)
FORCES	 Illidan (level 10 Warden hero)
		 Druid of the Claw x2
             Archer x2
		 Huntress x2
		 Wisp x8
		 Myrmidon x2
		 Siren x2
		 Dragon Turtle
		 Mur'Gul slave x8

NOTE: Keep in mind that this mission is about ten times more difficult in
hard mode. Malfurion will be constantly attacked, which will leave you with
little time to direct Illidan's strike force.

This is your first chance to use the Naga Units, which you will learn to use
as much as hate to face them. The Naga Myrmidon and the Dragon Turtles are
amongst the best units in the game, as for sheer damage and resistance they
are nearly unmatched. Also, note that, except the Sirens and the Qualtz, all
Naga units have Heavy Armor. Even Slaves.

They are also all amphibous, so they can swim. Illidan too, but he, uh, walks
on water. Holy crap. >_<

You must reinforce your Night Elf Base, and build a sizeable Naga Force to
destroy the undead. That said, this mission is not very hard, though you
do have a limited timeframe to finish it (while unlikely, the Undead can
eventually kill Tyrande... which, ironically, doesn't seems to be a mission
requeriment). You do not need to destroy any undead base save the red one, which
rocks because they all have level 6 heroes or more, and they are VERY hard to
destroy.

When you go south from Illidan's base, you will receive the DAM TROLLS
OPTIONAL QUEST, which requires you to go south and wipe the Trolls in there.
Eight or so Myrmidons will do the job, alongside Illidan. Just make sure to
Mana Burn or preferably kill the healers that guard the leader, who's a level
11 (!) berserker.

When you destroy the trolls, all it's left is to raze the red base. Going from
the south entrance will prove a lot easier. Move twelve Myrmidons, six Dragon
Turtles, and Illidan himself to destroy the south orange outpost.

Watch out for the level 8 Dreadlord and the level 5 Lich, and that's about it.
Takes about 20 minutes if you don't slack off.

While technically the Human campaign, you will mostly control Blood Elves

|________________|

At Grand Marshall Garithos' base camp in the outskirts of Dalaran, Prince
Kael and his troops arrive bearing ill news...

MAIN QUESTS: REPAIR OBSERVATORIES
		 - Find and Repair the observatories

OPTIONAL   : HIDDEN CACHES
QUESTS     	 - Find the Hidden Caches

ITEMS FOUND: Rune of Mana x6
		 Scroll of the Beast
		 Maul of Strenght
		 Rune of Greater Healing
		 Tiny Castle
		 Tiny Barracks
		 Tiny Altar of Heroes
		 Manual Of Health
		 Tome of Intelligence +2
		 Rune of lesser resurrection x2
		 Rune of lesser healing
		 Claws of Attack +3
		 Periapt of Vitality
		 Scroll of Healing x2
		 Rune of Rebirth
		 (perhaps something else I've missed. There are many items
		 on this mission)

STARTING   : Kael (Level 2 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Footman x3
		 Spellbreaker x2
		 Priest x2
		 Peasant x1

This mission is quite easy. Learn to manouver and use Kael, he'll be your
main hero during the campaign, and he's a Blood Mage, and those heroes are
very difficult to use.

You'll also introduced to the Spellbreakers, which are cool anti-caster units,
which are excelent to actually forget about Footmen.

At the start you will face a few creeps (Dalaran mutants (level 3), Blood
Wizards (level 3), Fel units (range from 1-5), and lower level apprentices
(level 1)), none shall pose too much trouble. Directly north of your starting
position is a group of trees which can be taken down with Kael's Firestorm,
which will lead you to a hidden group of four Murloc Nightcrawlers (level three)
and a single tiderrunner (level 1), which yields a Maul of Strenght. Obviously,
it's goddamn useless with Kael, but, eh...

As you advance, Kael will give you the HIDDEN CACHES OPTIONAL QUEST, which
we will complete as we go. The first one is north of the first groups of
wizards, includes some gold and a Tiny Castle.

By now, the first observatory will be completed, and you are given the location
to build a new base. That Tiny Castle is your start.

Further below it's a group of potentially dangerous Felguards (level 2), A
Bloodfiend (level 4) and a single Overlord (level 6). Banish the Overlord as
soon as possible, and deal with the rest.

The rest of the island only contains many items and more creeps. Nothing too
exciting, save the Hidden Cache (defended by level 2-5 rogues), which contains,
among other items, a few tiny buildings (such as a barracks and an Altar).

At the south of the island, as you reach the second ruined shipyard, you'll
see a cutscene and the Naga will gift you with two transports. Jump to the main
island, establish yourself and train new footmen. There are Trolls everywhere
on the island, ranging from level 1 to level 11, and including priests.
A full unit of Footmen should allow you to kill all the Trolls and seize
control of the island, allowing you to repair the second observatory.

You don't really need to take down the Undead Base to finish the mission, but
it's satistying ;). Still, a full unit of Spellbreakers or Footmen and a
few siege weapons (such as Mortars), plus Kael will bring swift death to
those who refuse to goddamn die.

The two resting caches are pretty far from the main road, but are easy to
catch. Once the undead base is down, you have all the time of the world to
decimate the annoying gnoll army near the third observatory.

11.2.2.-

The next day, at the Alliance base camp, Kael and his men ready themselves
to move out.

MAIN QUESTS: CRUSH AND DESTROY
		 - Destroy the green undead base

OPTIONAL   : ACQUIRE A GOLD MINE
QUESTS     	 - Secure a Gold Mine and Build a Town Hall

ITEMS FOUND: Tiny Castle

STARTING   : Kael (Level 3 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Peasant x10
		 Archer x3
		 Priest x5
		 Sorceress x2
		 Thunderhawk Rider x2


At the start, all of your perimetral bases will be razed. Not much you can do,
except trying to save the units up there by running away. As a side note, even
if you kill the Acolytes, after the cutscene, the bases will be there anyway.

Despite the overwhelming oppossition, our first target is to get a mine. After
the cutscene, Lady Vashj will join you alongside four Myrmidons, a couple
Sirens and a Royal Guard, which is a extremely powerful unit which can cast
a few spells. And you will get, for some funny reason, a Spellbreaker.

Establish a defensive force of at least eight Archers near the top entrance
of your base. Gargoyles and ocassionally Destroyers will attack you. Take
all of your Naga, the two Riders and your two heroes and attack the north
undead base. With the Thunderhawk Rider's Cloud ability, you should have no
trouble attacking and overtaking it. The crates around have gold and a Tiny
Castle, simplifying the mission.

Now, build up an attack force composed mostly of spellbreakers, though
priests are invaluable. Also add a few Thunderhawks. Use these to cast Cloud
on the towers and Halls, use the Spellbreakers to get rid of oppossing Unholy
Frenzy, and cripple, while using the Naga and breakers to attack the base.

It shouldn't be too difficult by now.

Two days later, within the magically shielded dungeons of Dalaran, Kael
and his Blood Elves brethen languish in their cells, awaiting their
inevitable execution.

MAIN QUESTS: FREE THE LITENAUTS
		 - Free the Blood Elves Litenauts
		 - Kael and Vashj must survive

		 THE JAILOR KASSAN
		 - Slay Kassan and his Guards
		 - Kael and Vashj must survive

OPTIONAL   : THE GHOSTS OF DALARAN
QUESTS     	 - Slay the spirits of the Archmagi

ITEMS FOUND: Ring of Protection +1
		 Stone Token
		 Medallion of Courage
		 Tome of Knowledge
		 Ring of the Archmagi
		 Tome of Strenght
		 Rune of Mana
		 Rune of Healing x2
		 Claws of Attack +3
		 Scroll of Mana
		 Scroll of Regeneration
		 Tome of Agility
		 Heart of Aszune*
		 Shamanic Totem*
		 Frost Wyrm Skull Shield*

* These three items are VERY WELL hidden. Check the Easter Eggs section for
info about them.

STARTING   : Kael (Level 4 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Vashj (Level 3 Sea Witch hero)

Ahh, some dungeon crawl. This level is unique since it contains the entryway
to the secret level, THE CROSSING, its solution is posted as the last Human
mission for the sake of order, and instructions to find it are on the way,
as they are easier to explain.

Start by choosing your two heroes, and you will receive the MAIN QUEST,
and the first of four litenauts is just a few steps. They are tough as
hell and even magic immune, so be sure to abuse them. A few more troops
are to the south of the Liteunaut's cell.

Go forth and you will face a group of spiders led by a level 8 Monstruous
Spider which is, well, big. Kill them and go back to the start and go south.
As the game notes, banish the guard or face problems. Your priests can
kill him once banished.

(NOTE: just so you don't forget, there is a stone token on the green river
next to the start. You can only get it with Vashj, and it's significantly
useful. Use firestorm on the mushrooms to open the way.)

Advance and you will be treated to a cutscene and be given the GHOSTS OF
DALARAN OPTIONAL QUEST. We will complete it as we go. Now, place one
unit on the green rune and another one on the one next to the door to
reveal the first Archmage. Kill him and pick up the item. He will be level 1.

Follow the way and engage the undead and the human fighting. There is a
nearby red rune, the second one is below the girl trapped (turns into an
archer) Stepping on both will result on the conflict with the second ghost,
a level 3 Archmage.

Go back and cross the bridge. You can either break in and kill the humans or
release the critters using a ranged unit and the lever. Either way, you're
in for a long fight (I'd rather free the critters and kill them. I'm against
that stuff of taking freedom away from something. Eh ^_^). Getting the
Scroll of Mana will activate the two Siege Golems (Level 6), but you either
way want the right one to move and reveal the second red rune, in order to get
the Tome of Agility. And it's experience.

Go forward, and you will find a rune with no pair: It is on the green river.
Use Vashj to get it. It will release the third Ghost, a level 6 Archmage.
Ignore the other for now, and follow the road to free the third Litenaut.

The next room has a massive ammount of people fighting. Let them settle
their differences and wipe the rest. As you go, you will find a door to the
right. This is the entrance to the Secret Level.

There are three sheeps and three switches. The top sheep is the "Cold Sheep",
the middle is the "Inner Sheep", and the bottom is the "Fire Sheep". Press
the switches in order:

- COLD

- FIRE

- INNER

You should hear something to the extent of "BAA RAM YOU". This will open the
door to the Secret Level Powerup, ringed by Flying Sheeps on Fire. Silly.

Follow, and you will be faced against two Lesser Flesh Golems (level 11),
and a Flesh Golem (level 11 too, though a lot more powerful), which are
noted as the only golems which can be affected by magic. As you continue,
you will be treated to cutscene where Kassan the turquish (i suppose) jailor
taunts you. Stop for a second and go back to the red rune we ignored.
And make someone step to the gold room, and watch for the cave with blue
things flying from it. Have that someone enter the cave to appear next
to the other red rune. Face the final level 9 Archmage and claim your prize.

Now, go for Kassan. He's Magic immune, but he shall prove no problem.

ITEMS FOUND: Mana Stone
		 Gloves of Haste
		 Orb of Slow
		 Claws of Attack +15
		 (Some other items ;)

STARTING   : Kael (Level 5 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Vashj (Level 4 Sea Witch hero)

NOTE 1: Heroes can't gain experience on this level.
NOTE 2: On ocassions (Particulary on HARD MODE) a Periapt of Vitality's been
sighted. On WIREWYRM's Hard Mode walkthrough it is mentioned, I've seen it
(but ignored it) and a friend told me about it... but I have no idea where
is it actually found. Wirewyrm says it's dropped by the Pandaren Brewmaster,
but after several tries, I haven't been able to find it.
NOTE 3: While its on your best interest to win this mission, it isn't really
needed. The game will progress as ussual if the portal is destroyed.
NOTE 4: There are many items hidden in crates and magical cubes.

THE CROSSING is a Tower Defense level, like many built for this game. The
deal is: the enemy sends lots of enemies running at the portal at the south,
and you need to stop them. The only thing you can build are defensive towers,
of several kinds. You will also control Vashj and Kael, though you will
agree with me that after a few waves they are kinda... useless.

There are five towers you will be eventually able to build. You will
 be told when a new tower is available:

BOULDER TOWER: Splash damage, only attacks land units.
MAGIC TOWER: Quick firing.
FIRE TOWER: Rapid fire!
ICE TOWER: Slows enemies, does not hit magic immune units.
DEATH TOWER: Well, the name says it all.

You have to deal with 30 waves:

WAVE 1: PEASANTS
WAVE 2: MILITIA
WAVE 3: FOOTMEN (Plus a captain)
WAVE 4: FLYING MACHINES
WAVE 5: MORTAR TEAMS (Plus a level 1 Mountain King)
WAVE 6: RIFLEMEN
WAVE 7: KNIGHTS (Plus a level 2 Paladin)
WAVE 8: GRYPHON RIDERS
WAVE 9: SIEGE ENGINES
WAVE 10: APPRENTICE WIZARDS (Plus a level 3 Archmage)
WAVE 11: ENFORCERS (Plus a level 6 Bandit Lord)
WAVE 12: FOREST TROLLS (Plus a level 6 Forest Troll Warlord)
WAVE 13: GOBLIN ZEPPELINS (Each one has four Sappers)
WAVE 14: OGRE WARRIORS (Plus a level 4 Mountain King)
WAVE 15: ROYAL GUARD (Plus a level 5 Paladin which starts with Divine Shield)
WAVE 16: RED DRAKES.
WAVE 17: SIEGE ENGINES (Plus a level 6 Mountain King which starts with Avatar)
WAVE 18: WARRIOR ARACHNATHIDS (Plus a level 7 Overlord)
WAVE 19: THUNDER LIZARDS (Plus a level 8 Storm Wyrm)
WAVE 20: WATER ELEMENTALS (Plus a level 7 Archmage)
WAVE 21: GOBLIN ZEPPELINS (Each one has four Shredders)
WAVE 22: ROCK GOLEMS (This one's a bitch)
WAVE 23: ELDER SASQUATCHES (Plus a level 9 Ancient Sasquatch)
WAVE 24: RED DRAGONS
WAVE 25: SIEGE GOLEMS
WAVE 26: CENTAUR KHANS
WAVE 27: GARGANTUAN SEA TURTLES
WAVE 28: PANDERANS (Plus a level 15 (!) Panderan Brewmaster)

Not much I can tell you about this mission. Just build lot of towers. Unlike
most of those TD maps on battle.net, you can't actually make a "maze" with
Towers, so you will have to rely on firepower to win. Quite a fun mission.

| THE SEARCH FOR ILLIDAN |
|________________________|

After three days of fruitless searching, Prince Kael and Lady Vashj realize
they are lost in the barren wilderness of the Hellfire Peninsula.

MAIN QUESTS: THE DEMON WITHIN
		 - Use your heroes to capture Illidan's cage
		 - The cage must not reach the Night Elves base.

		 ESCORT ILLIDAN
		 - Bring Illidan's Cage to the Blood Elves base.

OPTIONAL   : None
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: None.

STARTING   : Kael (Level 5 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Vashj (Level 5 Sea Witch hero)
		 Mushi Ale-Hearth (Level 5 Pandaren Brewmaster hero)*

*Only if you beat the secret level.

NOTE: The Pandaren Brewmaster can't carry items on this mission for
some reason. Furthermore, he won't be on the next mission with you.
And his name is random.

A NOTE ABOUT LEVEL CAPS: As far as I have been able to find, the level
caps are set at seven for all three heroes. That said, it's very unlikely
all three heroes will be at level 7 when you finish the mission unless
you spend an eternity killing Maiev. I'll leave it at 7 for Kael, and
6 for Vashj.

Like last level, this one is actually inspired by the DOTA (Defense of
the Ancients)-like maps made for the game. The deal is, you only
control your heroes, while the AI works with the units. It will
be constantly sending squads at the enemy, and your job is to lead them.

You will control Kael and Vashj (And the Brewmaster if you finish THE
CROSSING), and your job is, eh, kill Maeiv and then approach the Cage.
It will automatically move towards your base. You have to keep Maeiv
from killing all of your heroes and approaching the cage then.

The problem is that Maeiv is a WARDEN, which is the best hero killer
in the game, and she's level 10. With the combined power of your
three heroes (And the Brewmaster it's invaluable here), you need
to take her out of the picture FAST. Later you can think about the
horde of NE coming at you. Make good use of your abilities, and
if any of your heroes die (and they will) they will respawn after a few
seconds at your base.

There is a Mercenary camp which sells Warlocks, which are quite the
deal as they can cast Fireball, stunning units (I.E.: MAIEV!), and two Goblin
Labs, plus your Arcane Vault, for items.

Once the cage reaches the Circle of Power at the entrance of your base,
you've won the mission.

|____________________|

Two days later, upon the desolate plains of Outlands, illidan and Prince
Kael'thas prepare to assault Magtheridon's dimensional Gateways.

MAIN QUESTS: DIMENSIONAL GATES
		- Close each Dimensional Gate.
		- Bring Illidan to each Dimensional Nexus.
		- Illidan must survive for three minutes per gate.

OPTIONAL   : DRAENEI VILLAGE
QUESTS     	 - Destroy the Orange Fel Orc base

ITEMS FOUND: Scroll of Resurrection
		 Potion of Greater Healing
		 Rune of Lesser Resurrection
		 Manual of Health
		 Ring of Protection +4
		 Goblin Land Mines x2
		 Rune of Dispell Magic
		 Khadgar's Gem of Health
		 Rune of Shielding

STARTING   : Kael (Level 7 Blood Mage hero)
FORCES	 Vashj (Level 6 Sea Witch hero)
		 Illidan (Level 10 Demon Hunter hero)
		 Worker x9
		 Archer x3
		 Swordsman x6
		 Priests x3
		 Reaver x2
		 Siren x1 (¿?)

NOTE: The starting forces were very difficult to get. I don't quite think
they are right.

This mission doesn't requires much strategy so long you build up enough
forces for each Dimensional Gate. The only point you can get stuck (and I
did), is when you hit upon the northern Orc base, which can build dragons
seemingly from any building.

Build up an strong defense, as soon as you manage to close the first Gate.
Illidan can take quite a beating, and the enemies will die as soon as
the Gate closes, but don't take risks. Also, there are many items on crates
around, plus there are a few Draenei you can rescue on cages.

To the South of your base is the Draenei base. You will receive the
DRAENEI VILLAGE OPTIONAL QUEST, which requires you to destroy the orange
orc base, east of the Draenei base. Take upon a sizeable force (four
Myrmidon, a few archers and priests) and your three heroes, and wait for
the Draenei to launch an attack, preferably with Akama, their leader,
present. It should be enough to take out the base, since Illidan's
Metamorph and Kael's Phoenix will be very valuable. On the back
lines, use Vashj's ultimate to deal with buildings.

The other Orc bases aren't really all that difficult to deal with, EXCEPT,
the last northern base, which can build dragons and has a level 6
Blademaster. Furthermore, after your first attack, if you fail, it will
build as much as eight Red Dragons, which you can say are pretty annoying.

The only way I found of it this one was to build many, but MANY Coualts.
About 12-18 are barely sufficient, probably 24 would be okay. Have them and
your heroes (and a PHOENIX, summoned from Kael) concentrate on the Dragons,
while your ground force (which should consist of ten or so Myrmidons, a
few Priests, and as many Archer as you think you can) strikes the base.

If you, once again, coordinate with the Draenei and their siege engines,
it will be even easier. Otherwise, be sure to have a few Dragon Turtles,
which will help a lot taking out towers.

OPTIONAL   : DISABLE DEFENSES
QUESTS     	 - Destroy the Power generators

* With Kael and Illidan.
** Draenei units. With Akama, just north of Kael and Illidan.
*** With Vashj.

NOTE: This walkthrough is kinda weird. I admit, this mission doesn't
require much strategy, it's all pretty straightforward. These
are just some hints.

The Draenei units will be yours to command at last. Check out the
units section for a little bit of more info about them. Also, you
can controls two Naga Royal Guards. Try to keep them alive, they
are a very important asset.

It's really up to you how do you start, but keep this one in mind:
while the left side, all the way up to the Master of Pain, is
noticeably harder, the Mistress of Torment herself is a lot more
difficult that the Master. Also, all of your heroes can potentially
reach level 10 on this mission.

I personally like to eliminate the Mistress first because she's
pretty much twice as powerful as the Master (And the Pop Culture
Dominatrixes attack once again)(Not that I'm complaining)(Hell is this
game sexist!), but the Walkthrough will concentrate on the Master of
Pain first, so we can lead all four heroes against the Dominatrix.

Well, this stage is really all about using your Draenei to destroy the
generators (I haven't been able to beat the stage without destroying them,
though i reckon it shouldn't really be all that difficult),
and using your main forces in order to annihilate the orcs around. Remember
that, while the Draenei are the one who are permanently invisible, you can
turn Kael and Illidan invisible too (And Laugh about how Illidan ends up
stealthy as a bombing raid).

NOTE: Nothing to do with the stage or campaign, this reminds me of a DOTA
Allstars game I had recently, where someone of my team had chosen the
TFT Illidan. We were ganging up on on the other's team Sniper (Dunno if you've
played the map, but the Dwarven Rifleman - Named "Sniper"- is terribly
unbalanced), but another enemy came up and we had to run. Not only did we
had to face a character whose last ability's range is around 2000
(Regular Riflemen have 400 range), but the other enemy was chasing us
due to my partner's flaming footsteps. Needless is to say, nobody really
picks TFT Illidan's anymore.

Go north from Illidan's starting place, and trash the orcish base. To the
west, you will receive the SIEGE BASTION OPTIONAL QUEST, which you can
complete right now. Just go inside the room, kill the guards, and you will
earn four Demolishers to speed up the trashing. Make sure to save the Draenei
units, as for they are essential to deal with the Generators.

Finally, the Orcs will track you down and send units every once in awhile.
Bring up Illidan's forces north, and eliminate all resistance. The Master
of Pain lies at the end of the north. Unlike the Mistress, it's noticeably
weaker, though his girls can charm your units. Just bring swift death, and
break the boxes for a couple Fel units.

Reaching the Mistress of Torment also requires destroying an orc base, but
you will need to control Lady Vashj alone for awhile. Build many Dragon
Turtles to deal with the boats, as you need to keep the Royal Guard alive.

After dealing with the orc base, find the explosives to the north and blow
them up to reach some items. Now, after dealing with the first orc base,
on Illidan's side, you should have seen a floorplate. Pressing it will
raise one part of the bridge. After you deal with Lady Vashj's side, you
should be able to press the other Floorplate. This will allow you to join
both forces, and now gang up on the Mistress of Torture, who's a lot
tougher.

Once both are dead, head for the center. I recommend to advance slowly and
take out the enemies one by one, though it's possible to send up just a
single character (Akama should be the one), and lure Magtheridon out, as
he's very aggressive. Magtheridon isn't really all that tough save his
absurd HP level and his ridiculous damage output. Just keep him stunned
with the Royal Guards, Shadow Strike him, and slow him down. He will
be quickly killed. Watch out, though, for the Eredars, and the Doom Guards
around. They are lot more dangerous than the Pit Lord.

Once killed, the Human (or Blood Elves) Campaign is finished.

		 Ghoul x6****
		 Shade x6****

* With Silvanas
** With Arthas
*** With Kel'Thuzad
**** Two with each hero

NOTE: Heroes and Shades take up zero food on this stage.

This is one of the toughest stages due to the fact that you're
controlling three bases at once, and because of that, speed is the
most necesary thing.

I recommend using and clearing Silvanas Windrunner side first, since
she's the weakest hero, and requires the most micromanagement.
Start scouting and looking for the strongest units around (Knights are
particulary great). Deactivate curse on the Banshees to save mana, and
there is a Mana Fountain nearby her base. Don't leave the base alone,
I suggest you to train two more ghouls and leave them at home.

Build up max Necromancers and Abominations and rally them to their
respective heroes, and group them in order to react quickly.

Possess whatever strong units you find around. There is a base
which has four Dwarven Mortar Teams. These are great for possessing.
With the Knights and the Dwarves, assault the bases, but watch out,
each time you attack them, a level 5 Paladin and two Knights (which are
little more than possessing material) will teleport in.

Once Silvanas side is cleared (and make sure to kill the Level 5 Ranger
directly west of Silvanas base), make sure your defenses are still
up (Particulary on Kel'Thuzad's base, which is prone to be attacked by
Militia Commanders, which are very annoying), and concentrate on Arthas.
Build max abominations and start razing the bases around.

If you have trouble, just wait for a caravan, kill it, reanimate it,
and take them and a couple Abominations to draw fire away from Arthas.

Now, you can try and clear Kel'thuzad's side, but his side is by far
the most problematic because Necromancers are far too weak and Priests
abound. I personally think that using Arthas massive Abominations is
a lot better. Build up max Abominations, and send a suicide attack
against the temples. They not only spawn Heroes, they also train
Knights! Either way, concentrate on taking out at least one temple.

A clever strategy is to send Silvanas' Banshees first and Possess
whatever Knights you see. This way, their defensive power will be
severely crippled.

Once the Altars are destroyed, send up Arthas and Silvanas to destroy
the rest of the human camps while Kel'Thuzad defends his point.

NOTE: The +3 items are given by killing a Mountain King, an Archmage
and the aforementioned Ranger. They are all level 5, which shouldn't
really pose a deal to your level 10 behemoths.

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 8 Death Knight hero)
FORCES

While this is a relatively straightforward stage, and you can finish it
rather quickly, it has plenty of good items for you to collect. However,
if you're concerned for your life, you shouldn't really linger around for
too long, as enemies will spawn every three or so enemies and hunt you down.
Given that your units on this mission will be actually pretty limited,
perhaps it's better just to dart to the end.

I'll leave you then to explore and collect the items. As a general pointer,
if you see an item on open ground, you're in for a trap. Use cripple generously,
this is your best spell.

Go north, always. A few surprises await, but you should be able to get through.
At the start, cross right and head then north in order to receive a few
reinforcements. After you kill the abominations, be sure to pick up the
staff of reanimation, which is a very powerful item.

Once you reach the healing fountain, north is a switch, which will open up
a path to the east to a Boots of Quel'talas. Further north, you will
receive the OPTIONAL QUEST MEAT WAGONS SURPRISE, which is simply completed:
Keep pushing north and deal with the Dreadlord forces. The Dreadlord is very
weak, so don't really be scared by his sleep. To the left and down is a
room with two meat wagons, which you can use to easily dispose of the towers
to the north, and keep going right then north.

There is an orb of venom somewhere in the way, be sure to pick it up as Arthas
will have to probably deal with the Gargoyles if you mess with them. I'd
rather just go left and kill the Golems, the circle all the way around.

Keep going until you reach the part where you find your units duking it out
with lots of enemies. As you break the cages after the fight, choosing either
way will net you a Doomguard to the face. Make sure to reanimate it, as it is
extremely strong. Afterwards, be prepared: the next fight is the most difficult
for the stage, as you will face a Level 3 Dreadlord and an absolutely massive,
3000 HP buffed up abomination named "Bloodfeast". Just keep it crippled, and
kill the Dreadlord first, and the stage is over by getting Arthas to the
circle of power.

		 Ring of Protection +3
		 Claws of Attack +6

STARTING   : Silvanas (Level 4 Dark Ranger hero)
FORCES	 Banshee x4
		 Ghoul x2
		 Obsidian Statue
		 Acolyte x5

Interesting and fun packed stage which revolves around, bassically, stealing
everything that's not nailed down in order to make up a powerful army then
dealing with the enemy forces. While it's somewhat annoying having to play
without your trusty Crypt Fiends or Abominations, this stage isn't that
difficult.

Two abominations will attack you at the start from the north. Possess them
and heal them, and use them as a strike team to keep the enemies which will
start attacxking you in regular intervals from now on. Every three or so
waves, Varimathras himself will attack you as well to keep you on your toes.

Go north where you will find a few Ogres. Either kill them or possess them,
it will activate the OGRE WARLORD OPTIONAL QUEST. Furthermore, to the
northeast are a few bandits past the bridge, likewise, possessing them or
killing them will activate the BANDIT LORD OPTIONAL QUEST. We'll complete
them along the way.

Both quest are notably similar. The best way to deal with them is to build
a bunch of Banshees, and go along the way possessing what units you can't
avoid. Blackthorn's bit more difficult to possess, as he has ranged units
on his side. You might want to possess those ones. Either quest will net you
a powerful unit (Blackthorn and Mug'thol), and a bunch of regular units,
which is a very welcome addition to your limited forces. Also, not noted but
similary flavored, there are a Murloc emcampment to the north of the map,
and a Troll emcampment, both having a few units but more important an
abnormally powerful racial unit (a Troll Warlord and a Murloc which has
Death Coil, Blizzard *and* Purge). Not absolutely necesary but I've got
this fascination for Murlocs.

Either way, I recommend leaving those units home, and using a force of
8 Abominations, and Silvanas herself (who should become at some point
of the stage level 6, allowing you to use Charm)(actually, if you
want to make the stage a lot easier, just keep defending until she
becomes level 6). Attack the lower purple base: use a few Meat Wagons
to deal with defensive structures, while you steal/kill what few
units will arise, particulary if you counter-attack one of their many
strikes.

Once the purple base is down, the rest of the stage is to take down
the red base. Same strategy, though Varimathras is around and he's
level 5. Either way, stun him and keep punding away, and the
base is over.

*This item is particulary important as Varimathras uses plenty of
Necromancers. It's located on the town, on one of the boxes nearby
the southern entrance.

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 7 Death Knight hero)
FORCES	 Anub'Arak (level 4 Crypt Lord hero)
		 Ghoul x3
		 Crypt Fiend x4
		 Necromancer x3
		 Meat Wagon x2
		 Transport x2
		 Battleship
		 Frigate x2

Back with Arthas. While it's your choice how you try to "debuild" Arthas,
I'd recommend choosing Death Coil whenever possible. This stage is easy but
it's huge: You will require a strong defense in order to use your heroes to
advance.

You will also receive Anub'Arak on this stage: He's a Crypt Lord, a might
one-man-army which will prove useful all around until the end of the game.
Let him take the hits, let him lead: He will survive.

Upon starting, you will receive the THE LANDING MAIN QUEST; which barely
requires you to go north and demolish the Blood Elf base in there. Pretty
easy to accomplish, with your combined ground and sea forces, the base
won't pose but a speed bump. Manage your Meat Wagons and leave Arthas and
Anub'Arak on their own: they can take a beating. Shortly thereafter, you
will receive the DRAGON HOARD OPTIONAL QUEST, and your other MAIN QUEST.

THis optional quest leads to an interesting challenge that I've exploited
to further explore this stage: You can, with really good micro-management
skills, to beat the stage using only Anub'Arak, Arthas, and Saphiron, plus
a couple Crypt Fiends. Read more on the Easter Eggs Section.

To complete it, go north and face off against the many dragons in there. For
safety, four or five Crypt Fiends will work. Once you reach Saphiron,
however, send many reinforcements: Saphiron has chaos damage ranging around
100 and has splash damage which slows down your units.

Beating Saphiron completes the quests, and gives you a few items, but
most importantly, grants you Sephiron, a ridiculously powerful Frost
Wyrm with Frost Nova. Unfortunately, while his damage output will go
even higher, he will lose the Chaos damage type.

With Sephiron, your still Mighty Arthas, and Anub'Arak, you can easily
lead the assault to the Blood Elves base to the northwest.

As for the Naga, a good, slow siege will work much better. Naga Units,
particulary Myrmidons, are really tough due to their armor, which is heavy
in most cases (only Sirens and Qualtz have unarmed and light armor,
respectively), but Saphiron is too much to handle. Be sure to keep it healed,
though, using Death Coil.

The final assault against the guardians should be slow work as well. The
Arachnids will prove difficult, but you have the upper hand, while the first
batch of Nerubians is easier, due to the Fountain of Health nearby. Nerubians
aren't that damaging, but their numbers are annoying. Watch out for the
level 9 Nerubian Queen, though.

Once you reach the Dragonspawn, just line up your attacks at the Sorcerors.
Once their are down, you can reanimate them to heal arthas up, and the leader
won't pose trouble to your units. Mission Accomplished.

While this is quite an interesting mission, it's still a fairly easy one.
You've got a few minutes to accomplish the first objective (which, curiously,
you can't even fail this mission unless you get your base destroyed, which
is, as a matter of facts, impossible save of you killing all of your units
and razing it). You can destroy one base, and I suggest the human one. Rally
all of your units there, and start by possessing the Mortar Teams around,
which will speed up the razing proccess tremendously.

Either base is fine to destroy on the free proccess, but keep this in mind:
Humans are consideably more annoying, but noticeably weaker. Furthermore,
long strikes on human bases aren't in your best interest, as your units
do not regenerate on regular grounds.

The Undead, on the other hand, are much more potent and dangerous. If the
strike gets too long, you might be surprised by Detheroc, a very potent level
8 modified Dreadlord with _Shadow Strike_, which might make your escape a
difficult one.

Either way, it's possible to raze a base (or at least most of it, since the
small southern part of the bases aren't apparently counted, since they
don't contain unit-producing buildings), and go back safely. Varimathras
comes with a Scroll of Town Portal to make your travel back easier.

As soon as the timer is up, Detheroc will attack your base with some
Abominations and Necromancers. Make sure to go back accordingly or
they will decimate your base. As a good measure, be sure to leave some
spirit towers back home.

Once you destroy a base, don't get greedy and go back. Silvanas will
note that the base is no longer operational.

Prepare your offensive on the next base. For an easy victory, a sample
force would work: Three Frost Wyrms, twelve Crypt Lords and a few
Necromancers. Cripple dangerous units, charm Abominations, and spread your
Wyrms in order to freeze defensive structures. If things get annoying,
use Doom with Varimathras, as the Doom Guard has Dispel. Easy mission.

The Next day, on the outskirts of Lordaeron's capital city, Silvanas and
her allies prepare to lay siege on Balnazzar's formidable defenses.

MAIN QUESTS: BALNAZZAR
		- Destroy Balnazzar's purple base

OPTIONAL   : IRONFORGE DWARVES
QUESTS      - Look for the missing dwarves


ITEMS FOUND: Amulet of Recall

		 Scroll of Restoration
	 	 Hood of Cunning
		 Kellen's Dagger of Escape (!)
		 Ring of Superiority
		 Diamond of Summoning
		 Mask of Death
		 Crown of Kings
		 Ring of the Archmagi

STARTING   : SILVANAS' BASE
FORCES	 Silvanas (Level 8 Dark Ranger Hero)
		 Varimathras (Level 8 modified Dreadlord Hero)
		 Ghoul x2
		 Crypt Fiend x2
		 Abomination x2
		 Banshee x3
		 Necromancer
		 Shade x2
		 Acolyte x5

		 GARITHOS' BASE
		 Garithos (Level 8 Dark Knight Hero)
		 Footman x4
		 Knight x4
		 Peasant x7

Controlling two bases at once, just like the last NE mission. Your other
base is a small human base, led by Garithos, a Dark Knight, which
apparently is just a Paladin with Shockwave instead of Divine Shield and
Avatar instead of Resurrection. Very uninspired, but, that said, it's
actually pretty cool.

Four or five minutes into the mission, you will receive the OPTIONAL
QUEST IRONFORGE DWARVES. This quest isn't too difficult but the reward is
very important, so we'll finish it first. Take Garithos, two knight and two
footmen, and go north, taking the left path. You will face a group of
Kobolds, led by two overseers (level 5) and two geomancers (level 3). While
Kobolds are weak, they are numerous, so be sure to keep your units healed.
Destroy the cages to free a couple Rifleman.

I'd recommend you send them both back to the base, as around this time a
few gargoyles might attack your human base, and they can take out a tower,
which is something you can't afford. Keep pushing north, and eventually
you will reach a rock barrier, where a bunch of Dwarven riflemen, Mortar
Teams, and two Siege Engines.

Now, it's time to arm the offensive, but, however, defense is very important.
The undead are around in three bases: Orange, which will aim its units at
Silvanas' base, and Green, which will attack Garithos. Furthermore,
Balnazzar's massive base is purple, which will attack either way.

Balnazzar himself it's a very powerful level 9... Dreadlord? From what
I've seen, it's a Dreadlord with Finger of Death instead of... Inferno?
and the power to call down two Infernals at once, like Archimonde.

Using Silvanas' side first (The humans have a much better defensive point),
clear up quickly the first orange base, which should prove no problem.
Build a few defensive structures there, and begin mining. For the next base,
however, they have a LOT of units, so it will be a prolonged strike. Train
a few Frost Wyrms, and a bunch of abominations for this strike. You might
want to leave Varimathras at home with a few Crypt Fiends, as Balnazzar's a
toughie.

While you do not need to destroy the other bases, The strike against
Balnazzar will be pretty tough, and you do not want to get attacked while
you're out.

The attack against the green base shall prove a lot easier. Use a full group
of Siege Engines backed up with a full group of Riflemen, and, of course,
Garithos. This will be a suicide strike, but the Siege Engines will make
a powerful dent on their production, that if they don't destroy the base,
a second attack will not fail.

Now, start amassing units for the final strike. It's easier said than done,
though, as Balnazzar's base is ridiculously tough, and there is a damn
demonic portal in there which will summon Infernals and Doom Guards... I
don't know why, but apparently, whenever the hell it wishes. A combined
massive attack from both sides will prove effective, using plenty of siege
units. Aim at the unit producing buildings and don't let Balnazzar get
funny. If possible, attack while he's dead, and it will be a lot easier.

| CHAPTER SEVEN |
|_______________|

The seventh mission of the Undead Campaign, which documents the journey
of Arthas and Anub'Arak through the dead kingdom of Azjl'Nerub, is
separated into three parts. This part of the game is a tough dungeon
crawling adventure with plenty of backstory about the fate of the
Nerubians. For the sake of order, I've divided them as the game has.

MAIN QUESTS: THE OLD KINGDOM
		- Locate the Entrance to the Old Kingdom.
		- Kill Baelgun.
 		- Bring the Blood Key to the Old Kingdom lock.
		- Arthas and Anub'Arak must survive.

OPTIONAL   : FIND THE GOLD STASHES
QUESTS      - Find the Gold Stashes (duh)


ITEMS FOUND: Ring of Regeneration
		 Rune of Healing
		 Tome of Inteligence
		 Rune of Mana
		 Orb of Frost
		 Spiked Collar
		 Healing Salve
		 Healing Salve
		 Rune of Lesser Healing
		 Rune of Mana
		 Rune of Shielding
		 Blood Key

STARTING   : Arthas (Level 5 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Anub'Arak (level 5 Crypt Lord Hero)
		 Crypt Fiend x2
		 Ghoul x2
		 Meat Wagon


At the start, use your meat wagon, and aim at the explosive barrels
near the dwarves. It will let you continue. Deal with the Dwarves, and
step on the floorplate to open the door (which, incidentally, you can
just kinda destroy with your units).

NOTE: The explosive barrels are very likely to kill enemy units, but it's
harmless to YOUR units.

Continue to the next room, and be careful with the Siege Engine, which is
very damaging. Destroy all the barrels in the room to find a gold coin,
which will trigger the FIND THE GOLD STASHES OPTIONAL QUEST. We will complete
it as we go.

Enter the next room, and deal with the Nerubians. There is a gold coin to the
southeast of the room (2/5). GO north to continue.

The next room holds a dead end that Arthas will make sure you know about it.
Destroy the rock chunks in order to reveal a lever which opens the door. Go
forth, and destroy again all the barrels, to the northeast of the room
is another gold coin (3/5). Hit the right lever and destroy the ancient gate,
then step on the floorplate to collect a very valuable spiked collar, then
hit the other level, which will release a couple of really big Nerubians.
Kill them and destroy the Nerubian Vault, which will release a really cool
Orb of Frost (!). A band of dwarves will storm the room. Deal with them
as you like.

The next passage is easy: Just shoot the explosive barrels to deal with the
dwarves, and you only mop what's left. Continue along the way with that in
mind, though watch out for another Siege Engine. As you find levers hit
them. If you can't reach an enemy, shoot at the explosive barrels.

When you hit a room where dwarves are duking it out with nerubians, destroy
the sourthern barrels to reveal another golden coin (4/5). Destroy
whoever survives, and go forth north. There is a fountain of restoration
(though I should note I didn't need it), and the final coin is behind the
waterfall. Quest complete. Prepare yourself, and go forward to meet
Baelgun.

Baelgun is a level 10 Mountain King, but, fortunately, he has nearly no
backup, and he won't activate Avatar right away... furthermore, you can
even stop him from using it altogheter if you keep him stunned and
have your Felhound (summoned via the Spiker collar) mana burn him as
fast as possible and as many times as possible. Watch your puppy, as
the Riflemen will aim at him.

Once Bael'gun is dead, pick up the Blood Key he drops, and bring it to
the beacon. Part one finished.

		 RESCUE THE CRYPT FIENDS
		- Find and Release the Crypt Fiends


ITEMS FOUND: Belt of Giant Strenght +6
		 Runed Bracers
		 RIng of Protection +3
		 Medallion of Courage


STARTING   : Arthas (Level 4 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Anub'Arak (level 6 Crypt Lord Hero)
		 Crypt Fiend x2
		 Ghoul x2


NOTE: Curiously, Arthas didn't lose a level last mission, so Blizzard
just kinda did away with one off-camera. Go figure.

NOTE STRIKES BACK: Arthas is noticeably weak compared to Anub'Arak during
this mission. Keep him behind.

THE RETURN OF NOTE: For some reason, most nerubian creeps on this mission
are two levels lower than ussual.

The start will be elegantly pointed out by Anub'Arak. Destroy the rock chunks
to the left to reveal a lever, hit it and go right and get rid of the
Nerubians to hit the other lever in order to disable the trap. Go north
destroying the gate, and kill every nerubian there. Find the barrel, and destroy
it, which will trigger the OPTIONAL QUEST FIND THE GOLD STASHES, which we will
complete along the way. There is a Crypt Fiend trapped, approach it and it will
trigger the OPTIONAL QUEST RESCUE THE CRYPT FIENDS.

The next room will be a trap which will throw you do against a lot of giant
crabs ;). The next one is also a trap, which tempts you to get an item in the
middle of the room. As you grab it (It's a Belt of Giant Strenght), a bunch of
Arachnids will atack you. Time your Impale in order to stun as many as
possible, and activate Locust Swarm for extra support.

Destroy the gate to continue south. There you will find a few Crypt Fiends
(remember to heal them!), and go forth, where you will find a Fountain of
Health, plus a few eggs. Destroy them to reveal the second gold coin (2/5).

The Next room holds a Nerubian Queen (level 7, oddly), and lots of eggs.
Kill her, and destroy the eggs to find another gold coin (3/5). You can
hit the levers to trap the spiderlings which will continually spawn.

Continue and deal with the Lord (level 5) and a few level 3 warriors,
the locate and destroy the crates to find yet another gold coin (4/5).

Go forth in order to find a room with, uh, tentacles sticking out. You
will find out about it later. Suffice is to say that, while having only
200 HP and an inability to move, they are pretty damaging. There will
also be Faceless Tricksters (level 6) and a single Deathbringer (Level 10).
You will be able to rescue the remaining Crypt Fiends and finish the
OPTIONAL QUEST there.

The next room poses a huge problem: The Forgotten One. Attack with all you
can spare, and use Death Pact to keep Arthas Alive. It will summon Tentacles
and use Flame Strike, but if you attack swiftly and heal as much as possible,
you will be able to survive, and finish the mission.

MAIN QUESTS: ESCAPE THE CAVERNS
		- Escape before timer expires
		- Arthas  must survive.
		- (Anub'Arak Must Survive)

OPTIONAL   : FIND THE GOLD STASHES
QUESTS      - Find the Gold Stashes (duh)

ITEMS FOUND: Potion of Greater Healing
		 Claws of attack +15
		 Ring of Protection +5
		 Rune of Healing x?
		 Rune of Mana x?
		 Rune of Lesser Healing x?
		 Hood of Cunning
		 Tome of Strenght +2
		 Orb of Darkness
		 Crown of Kings


STARTING   : Arthas (Level 3 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES

Timed escape, so don't slack off. Don't touch the Lasers, or there'll be
hell to pay. Each laser takes off 150 HP (200 in Hard mode), so time it.
There is a gold coin to the south then to the left, which triggers the
final OPTIONAL QUEST FIND THE GOLD STASHES, which only requires 3 coins
this time. I'll point them along the way again, but it might be a bit
dangerous to try.

The next room has you to time down the lasers again to step on all plates.
Once you hit them all, hit the lever to release a enemy (which drops the
claws of attack +15, and the second gold coin (2/5). Go forth,
and use the Health Fountain if you need it, then go north.

Plenty of Faceless one around. You might want to avoid them. Destroy the
pillars to advance, and try your best to avoid the Blizzard. Finally,
as you hit the final one, a bridge will be extended for you to advance

The next room has a tricky puzzle, but it's optional. You need to step
on both plates, but since you have Arthas only, you should either animate
something with the Rod of Animate Dead you probably still have, or some
other means to summon a unit.

The next room is a pain in the ass. Just try to make your way to the
right side. OTherwise, you can spend a few minutes to get some items,
but it's probably not worth it. Once you reach the right side, Anub'Arak
and other Crypt Fiends will arrive, updating your MAIN QUEST, with the
aditional requeriment that Anub'Arak must survive.

The next passageway has the final Gold coin down to the south on the
last crate.

Further west is the final confrontation. There is a Faceless One
Annihilator who's pretty tough, so use your best weapons on him. Once
killed, run for the exit, and the chapter is over.

Moments later, at the Undead Stronghold, King Arthas and Anub'arak make
their final plans to defend the Lich King's Throne Chamber.


MAIN QUESTS: THE FROZEN THRONE
		- Capture the four obelisks

OPTIONAL   : None.
QUESTS

ITEMS FOUND: Sacrificial Skull x2
		 Khagdar's Gem of Health
		 Helm of Valor

		 Amulet of Spell Shield


STARTING   : Arthas (Level 2 Death Knight Hero)
FORCES	 Anub'arak (Level 8 Crypt Lord Hero)
		 Crypt Fiend x5
		 Ghoul x4
		 Meat Wagon x2
		 Shade
		 Acolyte x3

NOTE: Arthas can, finally win experience and levels on this stage. In fact,
he can, and probably will, go up all the way to level 10.

At last, the final chapter for The Frozen Throne.

This stage pits you against *two* Naga Base and a Blood Elf Base, the first
two led by Illidan himself and Lady Vashj, while the elves are led by Kael,
all of them level 10, and potentially annoying as hell. As you start, there
will be a small settlement to the south: Attack it, and use the Sacrificial
Skulls nearby to build a quick defense on both sides of your base, and
we'll give out a small overview of the stage:

Northwest is Kael's Base. While his units are notably weak, and it's technically
weak to a massive air strike, Wind Riders are on masse all over his base, and
it can mean a massive loss of money invested on Frost Wyrms. It's a lot more
effective to attack with a group of Crypt Fiends, a few Abominations and
Meat Wagons, and Arthas himself, while leaving Anub'Arak for defense, as I
will detail later.

As for Kael himself, he's a Blood Mage, and that means he's not a lot of
use in defense. Keep an eye on him when he attacks, though, as he's fit to take
out lines of towers and workers easily.

Southeast is Lady Vashj's Base. Her units are a lot tougher, but his base is
not as suited to defense against air strikes. You might want to consider the
same strategy, reinforced with a few Frost Wyrms. Target the Myrmidons with
your ground troops, and the Wyrms and Meat Wagons will deal with the towers.

Lady Vashj is a pain in the ass, but the reliance of the AI to use Tornado
will make it rather easy to stun her via Impale.

Northeast is Illidan's base, and it's inaccessible via land. It's also
ridiculously fortified with dozens of units, and, since an air strike is
the only alternative, it's almost impossible to destroy it save a cheat code.
Destroying it, though, doesn't do you any good: The mission will proceed until
you decide to finish it.

Also scattered around the stage are a few small bases property of Illidan's
forces.

In the middle of the Map is the Frozen Throne. To reach it, you need to activate
and keep under your control the four obelisks around it. The deal is that Illidan
will also try to control them, so you need to repel him. Once you reach an
obelisks and deal with whatever resistance's there, you will spend half a minute
activating it with Arthas: Just move him to the Circle of Power.

Just as the mission starts, Illidan will only take a few minutes to control
the first obelisk. Don't despair! Build up a few Crypt Fiends, and attack the
southern obelisk with Arthas and Anub'Arak. Now, send a few Acolytes and haunt
the Gold Mine in there. Following that, build up lots of towers *and* a
Necropolis, and upgrade them accordingly. When money abounds, be sure to
make that Halls of the Dead into a Citadel of the Dead.

Now, the defensive assignment it's pretty easy to make: Make sure that your
towers expand to the lower path. It will make it that Lady Vashj's forces
will target that instead of your main base. Whenever she attacks, simply send
Arthas and Anub'Arak. Anub'Arak is, BTW, a great tanking hero: You can
actually repel most attacks using him alone, except for Illidan's Mana Burn.
In any case, if you don't want to take any risks, both heroes and a few
Crypt Fiends are okay.

Now, move your main forces to the left obelisks. Maybe Illidan's already taken
it, if that's the case, just wait for his attack and kill him. Then strike
swiftly and repeat the same strategy: line up your towers so that they take
the left path, to lure Kael over there. This way you will protect, more or
less your main base.

Now, it's time to move into an attack. Kael's base's possibly a lot easier than
Vashj's, so move over there. Directly north of your base, BTW, is a gold
mine which is fairly unprotected. Now, your forces, as I told you before,
could be around 12 Crypt Fiends, four or so Abominations to tank around,
and four or five Meat Wagons. Tag Arthas around to get more levels and to
heal your units. Just watch out for Kael's Phoenix, and if you see the egg,
destroy it at once.

Once Kael's base is down, we move south to take out Vashj's base, which is more
or less the same attack force, but add a few Frost Wyrms. Same startegy, but
Vashj's ultimate isn't nearly as annoying. Watch out, though, for masses
of Myrmidons, which should be countered by Arthas and your Abominations.

All the meanwhile, Illidan will be clashing mercilessly against your
obelisks. Anub'Arak should be able to hold on via his ultimate and Impale
until help (IF needed) arrives. I kept a group of six Crypt Fiends
with me at all times, though I realized later that I was using them
more as Cyclone fodder than anything else, by keeping them a bit advanced.

Illidan's base is untouchable save a massive Frost Wyrm attack (please.don't),
so we'll leave the base destruction at that. Leisurely, build up the same
attack force: And storm quickly to the closest Obelisk. It shouldn't pose a
trouble, save for Illidan. I like to attack when he's dead, for obvious
reasons. Build up a hasty defense of a few Spirit Towers, use Sacrificial
skulls bought at your Tomb of Relics, possess the obelisk and, QUICKLY, run up
to the final obelisk. If done right, Illidan won't even be there to defend it.

If you miss the mark and he's around, still, you can simply send everything
you've got. A nifty trick (though probably quite difficult to pull off), is
to keep a small aerial force (Gargoyles work best) to hit and run his base.
You don't need to destroy it, but he might think his base is in danger, and
run back. Once the fourth obelisk is owned (^_^), the mission, and the main
storyline for the third Warcraft game, it's over.

<UNDER CONSTRUCTION>

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

12.- Easter Eggs.

Well, The Frozen Throne definitely has the most easter eggs (and the funniest
ones) I've ever seen on a game - and that includes Duke Nukem 3D -.

EDITOR

Like in ROC, a few funny tooltips are around the editor. This time, the
tooltips of racoons, bunnies, frogs and chickens (Though not penguins),
is written "Call up the fearsome spirit of *animal* to save you".

There is, also, an amphibious sheep to be used. oO

EPISODE 1: MISION I - RISE OF THE NAGA -

After the second group of Satyrs, hug the trees to the right and try to
blink to the right. There lies a "Furbolg Hermit" and three deers. Kill it
to net Healing Wards.

EPISODE 1: MISSION II - THE BROKEN ISLES -

The skeletal orcs battling during the SILENCE THE GHOSTS OPTIONAL QUEST
are part of the Blackrock Clan, the Stormreaver Clan and the Twilight Clan.
The Blackrock clan destroyed the other two during WC II.

Also, Drak'thar's hut has a very weird flag in from which looks like an
orc with its face painted and black straight hair. No clue about it but i'm
sure it's an easter egg.

Furthemore, make sure to use blink to get the tomes on the wall. It will say
"SECRET FOUND: Hidden tomes of the Ancients"

EPISODE 1: MISSION IV - WRATH OF THE BETRAYER -

After you find the first gate, look southwest with your Hyppogryphs. You
should see a level 1 Pandaren Brewmaster. Blink to it, and it will leave
behind a Slippers of Agility +3 and exclaim SECRET FOUND: Pandaren Brewmaster.

In the purple naga base, to the east, is a lone Royal Guard. Assault the base
and attack it, SECRET FOUND: Keeper of the Storm Shrine. Inside, you will
find some gold.

Finally, in the north part, past the last two witches, is a secret garden,
where GRANK THE RAT, a far relative for FLINT THE RAT in WC III is waiting for
you. As Flint, it's immune to anything but massive clicking. Explode it,
and it will leave you a Talisman of Evasion. Nifty.

EPISODE 1: MISSION V - BALANCING THE SCALES -

After being re-introduced to the Naga, look for the trees that are in the
middle of two colums. Use Malfurion's Force of Nature, and inside you will
find a few items, including three tomes +2. Watch out for the Reef Elementals.

EPISODE 2: MISSION I - MISCONCEPTIONS -

Right to the south of the very middle of the map, behind some trees
(accessables from the area with all the bandits), it's a MOSS COVERED
GRANITE GOLEM. You can reach it by using Firestorm on the trees. He's mighty
tough, but leaves nice (though they could have been better :S, given
all the goddamn units I lost) items: A Rune of lesser healing, a Rune of
Resurrection and a Claws of Attack +3

EPISODE 2: MISSION III - THE DUNGEONS OF DALARAN -

Right at the start, to the right, is a Rock Golem guarding a Magical Vault.
Open it to reveal a Tome of Knowledge.

Also, you can enter the Secret Level from here. It's easier to explain if
you follow the walkthrough, but let me elaborate here. After you get the
third captain, Eventually you will come to a door to the left. Open it
and watch the scene.

There are three sheeps and three switches. The top sheep is the "Cold Sheep",
the middle is the "Inner Sheep", and the bottom is the "Fire Sheep". Press
the switches in order:

- COLD

- FIRE

- INNER

You should hear something to the extent of "BAA RAM YOU". This will open the
door to the Secret Level Powerup, ringed by Flying Sheeps on Fire. Silly.
This is a reference to BABE, the movie about the, eh, talking pig who wanted
to be a, uh, sheperd. And it even had a sequel. Geez.

The four spirits of Archmage are a nod to the four Archmagi channeling the
barrier during the Undead mission on the ROC campaign THE SIEGE, though,
notably, one of these was Antonidas, but he's not found as a spirit to
be quelled. Curious mistake.

(On behalf of myself, as a plot guide writer, it's an INCREDIBLE HANDLE in
order to evade any future controversy regarding Antonidas' death)

Finally, the three special items (The Frost Wyrm Skull Shield, the Shamanic
Totem and the Heart of Aszune) are located just before freeing the third
Litenaunt. There is a white rune in front of a demonic door. The second
white rune is after the sheep room, where a few mushrooms are. A rune of
Healing and the other rune is there. Activate both runes, and the
door will open, revealing an strange and somewhat eerie room with diverse
parafernalia from the game, apparently a souvenir room. In there, hidden
in crates, are the three powerful items. Furthermore, the Heart of Aszune
was used as a key item on a Orcish mission on the ROC campaign.

All of them are guarded by a single but absolutely massive creep: a
5000 HP level 11 Arcanite Golem, which hits in the 80-90 range with Chaos
Damage and is Magic Immune. But the rewards are well worth it.

EPISODE II: SECRET MISSION - THE CROSSING -

This level is a big easter egg, as it is a nod to all the Tower Defense
custom maps that are still popular on battle.net. Not to mention all the
crazy stuff going on in there, of course.

For example, the workers falling asleep.

EPISODE II: MISSION VI - LORD OF OUTLAND -

Right after you start with your Draenei troops, head west. You will eventually
hit upon a fiery hall, where a buffed up abomination named "BUTCHER" lies.
He's mighty tough, so attack, preferrably, with your expendable troops (just
leave the Draenei away). He drops a Rune of Resurrection, and, among his
treasures, is WYRT'S OTHER LEG, the follow up from WYRT'S LEG on ROC.
This is a reference to Diablo, Blizzard's hugely successful RPG, where a
character named Wyrt lost his leg due to the Butcher, an enemy. Apparently,
someone expected two to be better than one.

The Bovine Slaughtering stuff refers to Diablo II's secret stage, a place
with, uh, armed cows attacking the player. Demented, yes, but true. I do not
know if Wyrt's leg had any holding about finding the stage, but that's because
i didn't really played Diablo or Diablo II for long. I dislike MMORPGs.

(That said, the Dark Elves from Lineage II are the sexiest things I've
seen on a PC screen that's not actual flesh.)

On the first orc base north of Illidan's location, on the southwest part of
the base, it's a clump of mushrooms. Take it out with catapults or Kael's
Flamestorm, and go in to find... a trio of Snowmen. Eh.

Two of the Blademasters you will find on this mission are named REND and MAIM.
They are supposed to be Blackhand's sons, the original warchief of the horde.

EPISODE 3: MISSION I - KING ARTHAS -

To the northwest of the map, there is a bunch of trees nearby an Arcane
Sanctuary: Look carefully, and you should note a few that are darker. Go
in there and you will find what's become of Timmy: Now he's a mechanical
unit that sells Ice Shards. Poor Timmy, though at least, now he's
indestructible. Better than being a ghoul.

EPISODE 3: MISSION IV - THE RETURN TO NORTHTREND -

Perhaps the biggest mystery in the game (and perhaps the most obscure
easter egg as well), is this one: After you decimate the Naga Base and
the High Elves one, you can go west and then south. As you approach the
end, an earthquake will open the way to a funny looking forest. There is
a Scroll of Mana over there, but also is a door that opens to a cutscene
with the Penguin King: a 1300 HP massive invulnerable critter that will
dance and leave you a Ring of Protection +4.

However, memories of the World's Largest Panda linger on...

Now, this doesn't ends. There is also a Large Penguin critter that leaves
a Ring of Superiority on the island that you start, and there is a penguin
on the north creep base that has a funny name: Little Timmy. There are all
sorts of rumors regarding this egg, and I can't certify any of them, though
there are some things I can guarantee don't change the outcome of your
encounter with the Penguin King:

- Possessing penguins and going in there with them (This is one of the
strongest rumors and it seems pertinent, since Penguins when idle will
dance, and it seems  as if they react to the King's pressence, however,
you can only possess two penguins (including the Large Penguin) and move
them at the King's nest, and Little Timmy (who would make a lot of sense
to change the outcome) can be possessed, but he cannot be transported towards
the King)

NOTE: Well, I've did it. It doesn't work. Took me a good two hours for
nothing. Lesson is: Don't believe rumors.

- Reaching with other character than Arthas (Tried with everyone).

- Playing on Hard Mode.

I can, almost 100% sure, certify this Egg doesn't changes, though any info
will be appreciated. Also, save the strange fetish Blizzard has with
funny animals (it's a wonder they haven't done anything with Iguanas),
this has no particular reference.

EPISODE 3: MISSION VI - A NEW POWER IN LORDAERON -

South of Balnazzar's base, there is a creep outpost with a Flesh Golem
(level 11), a couple Zombie Mutants (Level 6?), and a few level two
"Jacobs reject". This is a particulary weird name: I personally like to
think it's a reference to the monsters on the Tim Robbins movie "Jacob's
Ladder", though that is probably wrong.

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 :).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
- PATCH 1.15
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

FEATURES

- A new Neutral Hero, the Goblin Tinker, has been added to the game. For
  further information on this strange new Hero and a listing of his abilities,
  visit http://www.battle.net/war3 .
- The matchmaking system has been significantly updated. New accounts should
  more quickly begin playing against opponents of equivalent skill level.
- Clan ladders are now functional. Games against ranked players will now
  contribute to your clan's ranking on the ladder.
- Clan information is now displayed in your player profile, including your
  clan name, tag, ladder ranking, and more.
- Display of channel moderators has changed.
- Ladder information is now more clearly separated in your user profile.
- Free For All (FFA) games are now anonymous. Account names and player levels
  will no longer be displayed to other participants. Other players will be
  displayed as "Player X", where X is the number of the player in the game.
- Added an on/off button for the "Alt" formation toggle functionality to the
  Options --> Gameplay menu. The option is "On" by default.
- Added a "Worker Selection" button that appears beneath the construction
  progress indicator for Night Elf and Orc buildings. This allows Orc and
  Night Elf players to re-select workers that are currently constructing a
  building and give them additional way-pointed orders.
- Added the ability for users to double-click replay files (*.w3g files) from
  system directories. Doing so will automatically launch the game and load the
  appropriate replay.
- Buff and debuff icons (not including auras) now flash when their duration
  has 10 or fewer seconds remaining.
- Buff icons will display in the tooltip when a group-selected unit is
  highlighted in the info panel.

FIXES

- Fixed an issue with cargo based structures/units (Entangled Gold Mines, Orc
  Burrows, Goblin Zeppelins, etc.) which could cause units to get stuck
  inside permanently.
- Fixed a problem where water elementals that died during Mass Teleport were
  not being properly removed from the game.
- Fixed an issue that caused hit point bars not to show up properly for some
  teams when viewing replays.
- Fixed an issue that caused the Anti-magic Shell art to display incorrectly
  on Crypt Fiends after they unburrow.
- Fixed a problem where a Scroll of Town Portal could be wasted if the
  targeted town hall was destroyed before the spell completed. The Hero now
  retains the Scroll if the spell doesn't complete.
- Fixed an issue with the Mountain Giant's Taunt that could cause Invisible
  and Shadowmelded units to improperly attack and reveal themselves when the
  ability was activated.
- Fixed an issue with the "Observers on Defeat" functionality that caused
  units not to be displayed on the minimap.
- Fixed a problem with the Pandaren Brewmaster that caused incorrect
  regeneration of health and mana while his ultimate was active.
- Fixed a problem with Spell Steal and Polymorph that could turn a ground unit
  into a Flying Sheep.
- Fixed an issue that could cause the Web and Ensnare graphics to display
  improperly.
- Fixed a problem that caused the Inferno stun damage to not be applied to
  magic-immune units in The Frozen Throne. All ultimates should ignore magic
  immunity.
- Fixed some spell targeting issues with Resistant Skin. Doom (and possibly
  other spells) should work the same way as Charm.
- Fixed an issue with Metamorphosis which prevented some Orb effects
  from working while the Demon Hunter was in his altered form.
- Fixed a problem with the Scroll of Town Portal which did not allow Heroes
  to regenerate the appropriate hit points and mana while the spell was being
  cast.
- Fixed the accidentally inflated hit point regeneration rate on the Naga
  Sea Witch, Beastmaster, Pandaren Brewmaster, and Spell Breaker back to
  the standard .25 hit points per second.
- Fixed Shockwave's damage radius to 125.
- Fixed Orb items to now cause the proper damage versus air for melee Heroes.
- Fixed an issue with Militia in which units ordered "Back to Work" could
  change back into Militia when arriving back at the town hall.
- Fixed Breath of Fire's damage area to more accurately represent a cone area
  of effect, rather than a line.
- Acolytes harvesting from a Haunted Gold Mine with the Entangling Roots buff
  now register as idle like other peons.
- Fixed the Blight generated by the Sacrificial Skull such that a
  non-Undead building placed on top of the Blight will not remove the
  Blight when it finishes construction.
  Detonate, Dispel Magic, and Disenchant correctly dispel this Blight.
- Fixed an issue that allowed Banished worker units to build, Repair,
  and harvest. Note that Detonate and Unsummon will remain unaffected by
  Banish since they're considered "magical".
- Fixed Lightning Shield so that if two units with Lightning Shields overlap
  each other, they both correctly take damage.
- Fixed an issue that allowed an ally that did not have Shared Control to
  Uproot and command your Ancient of Wonders. Allied players without Shared
  Control should only be able to purchase items from the building.
- Fixed a problem with item-summoned units which would cause them to leave
  corpses and spawn units from Black Arrow.
- Fixed an issue with Animate Dead which in some cases caused the spell to
  transfer the unit upgrades to the new owner.
- Fixed an issue that prevented players from way-pointing the Faerie
  Dragon's Mana Flare ability.

MAPS

Expansion - Frozen Throne
- (2)Tirisfal Glades - Added more trees to bottom start location. Mercenary
  creep camps are better suited to drop a level-4 charged item.
- (2)TheTwoRivers - Removed the Rune of Rebirth from Ogre Mage; added Rune of
  Mana to Ogre Mage. Lowered Ogre Lord drop from permanent level-6 item to
  level-5 item. Increased level of power up.
- (2)GlacialThaw - The drop tables have been re-adjusted for better one-on-one
  competition.
- (4)TwistedMeadows - Corner creep camps harder to Gargoyle rush. Replaced
  Tavern with Goblin Merchant; replaced Marketplace with Tavern. Lowered creep
  strength for Goblin Merchant. Goblin Laboratories are harder to purchase
  from without engaging creeps.
- (4)TurtleRock - Added some trees to the south Goblin Merchant area to
  prevent the player from making purchases from the building without engaging
  the creeps that guard the building. Changed several creep drops to help with
  game flow.
- (6)DemonsCrossing - Fixed alliance settings.
- (6)RiverOfSouls - Removed the creeps from the taverns and fixed a cave
  doodad.
- (8)AzureTowerDefense - Fixed the hotkey for the Azure Wisp 'A'. Fixed a
  spelling error with 'Upgrade Arrow Damage' tooltip. Azure Witch had a
  conflicting ability hotkey that has been fixed. Brilliance Aura and Frost
  Arrow both used 'R'; Brilliance Aura now uses 'A'. The +3 Tome's description
  now correctly states that it adds +3 to all Hero attributes.

Classic - Reign of Chaos
- (2)Plunder Isle - Added some trees to the north and south location near the
  Goblin Merchant to prevent the player from making purchases without engaging
  the creep guarding the building. Cleared some room around the Goblin
  Merchant to prevent Archer cheese.

- Bash % chance to hit increased by 5% across all levels.
- Slow mana cost increased to 50 from 40.
- Control Magic mana cost is now calculated based on the target unit's

  from .3 mana per hit point.
- Spell Breaker feedback damage vs. Heroes reduced to 4 per hit from 5 per
  hit.
- Dragonhawk Rider damage reduced to 1d3 + 17 from 1d3 + 18.
- Flying Machine damage vs. air increased to 1d2 + 13 from 1d2 + 11.

  lasted 4/6/8 seconds against Heroes.

  research, down from 60 and 75 seconds.

  from 125.

- Fan of Knives level-2 base damage increased to 125 from 120, and
  level-3 base damage increased from 180 to 190. Although this appears
  to be an upgrade, it actually is a reduction in overall power. The
  previous patch had a bug at levels 2 and 3 in which, if 6 or more
  targets were available, the ability did more than the expected
  amount of maximum damage. This change remedies that error.
- Mana Flare splash damage no longer harms units that lack a mana pool.
- Wellspring now upgrades Moonwells to 425 mana, down from 500 mana, and
  Moonwell mana regeneration scaled proportionally.

- Faerie Fire mana cost increased to 45 from 35.

Neutral Units and Heroes
- Dark Ranger starting Agility increased to 21 from 19.

  the level-2 and level-3 versions were shaped exactly like Shockwave,
  while the level-1 area was occupying a much larger area than intended.

  The damage of Breath of Fire has been increased to 65/120/175 from

FIXES

- Fixed an issue related to copy protection.

ANNOUNCEMENT

We are aware of some new issues that came up with the release of the 1.13
patch. We will be releasing a 1.14 patch in the near future that addresses
some of these issues, including:

- Custom save games from version 1.12 (including those from Orc Act I)
  incorrectly recognize Hero Agility, causing slow attack speeds after the
  1.13 patch is applied. This will be fixed in the 1.14 patch.
- Town Portal always places your units to the lower right side of your town
  hall instead of the location you clicked, as it previously did. This will
  be fixed in the 1.14 patch.
- If you research the Skeletal Mage upgrade, then you will no longer be able
  to use the Raise Dead skill on the corpses inside a Meat Wagon. This will
  be fixed in the 1.14 patch.
- When a unit with Unholy Frenzy is Polymorphed or Hexed, the unit
  permanently loses 75% of its attack speed. This will be fixed in the 1.14
  patch.
- If an Orc player uses the spell Spirit Link, and one of the linked units is
  a Troll Berserker with the Berserk ability active, then all units linked
  with that Troll will take the increased damage penalty associated with the
  Berserk ability. This will be fixed in the 1.14 patch.
- If a unit casting a channeling spell dies from Mana Flare, the channeled
  spell lingers in the area permanently. This will be fixed in the 1.14
  patch.
- The Call to Arms command does not work if you click the button an EVEN
  number of times. This will be fixed in the 1.14 patch.
* Any other confirmed issues that we can fix in time for the release of the
  1.14 patch.

Regarding balance, we are currently assessing the state of balance of 1.13
based on user feedback, online testing, and the review of replays. Although
we will make some number of balance changes in 1.14, these have yet to be
determined.

We appreciate the community's patience and support in our endeavor to further
tune the play balance, enhance the feature set, and increase the stability
of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.

- Blizzard Entertainment


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
- PATCH 1.13

  Otherwise, your Heroes will be default-level Heroes with basic starting items.
- Warcraft III now supports binding an email address to your Battle.net account,
  so that you can recover your password at a later stage, similar to the
  functionality that was added to D2.
- Race selection on the scheduled game dialog (tournament finals) is now saved
  for future scheduled games.

BALANCE CHANGES

Human
- Storm Bolt stun is now 5 seconds vs. units and 3 seconds vs. Heroes at all
  levels. Previously, it had this level of stun at level 1, but went up 2
  seconds vs. units and one second vs. Heroes each level. Additionally,
  level-2 and level-3 damage are now 225 and 350, respectively.
- Militia can now only be created from a player's starting Town Hall, but they
  can still be created from any of the player's Keeps or Castles.
- Blizzard is now damage capped. This damage cap is invoked when Blizzard hits
  more than 5 targets per wave.
- Scout Tower hp reduced to 300 from 500, and armor reduced to 0 from 5.
- Human towers now gain 2 armor per masonry upgrade, up from 1.
- Banish has been reworked. Previously durations were 12(5) / 24(7) / 36(9)
  by level, and mana costs were 75/50/25 by level. Instead, its mana cost is
  now constant at 75 mana; its cooldown decreases with level (5 / 3 / 1); and
  its durations only slightly improve with level (12(4) / 15(5) / 18(6)).
- Siphon Mana maximum range reduced to 800 from 850.

Undead
- Web upgrade cost increased to 150/150 from 75/75.

- Possession has been reworked. It is now a channelled spell with a 4 1/2
  second casting duration. During this time, the target is disabled and
  frozen into place, but is also invulnerable; and the Banshee takes triple
  damage from all attacks. Stunning or killing the Banshee that is casting
  Possession will cause the spell to abort. Additionally, the range of
  Possession has been increased to 350 from 200.
- Anti-magic Shell has been redesigned. The spell now absorbs the first 350
  points of spell or magic damage dealt to the target, but does not grant
  magic immunity. Note that spells absorbed by AMS can still deal secondary
  effects, such as stun, paralysis, or mana drain. Also the mana cost of
  AMS has been re-balanced to 150.

Orc
- Troll Batrider Unstable Concoction damage reduced to 550 from 900, and
  splash damage increased to 140 from 100.

- Level-3 Spirit Wolves now have 500 hit points, up from 400 hit points.

  via Spirit Link instead reduces a unit to 1 hit point, and dispels Spirit
  Link.
- Stasis Trap area of effect reduced to 400 from 500.
- Shockwave now has a damage cap of roughly 12 units affected. Note that this
  limit will not typically be reached except in team games.

- 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.
- Berserker Strength now requires a Stronghold instead of a Fortress.
- 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 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.

NOTES: Replays are incompatible between major game revisions. (1.07 replays
cannot be viewed with the 1.10 version of Warcraft III.) Custom save games will
not load from version 1.07.

You can find further information related to armor and damage types on our
web site at http://www.battle.net/war3/basics/armorandweapontypes.shtml

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%.

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.

- Curse now lasts 2 minutes, up from 1 minute.
- Curse cost reduced to 40 mana from 50.

- Carrion Swarm no longer hits wards.

Orcs
- Bloodlust cost reduced from 50 mana to 40 mana.
- Raiders now have light armor instead of heavy armor.
- Raider Ensnare lasts 12 seconds, down from 20 seconds, and has a cooldown
  of 12 seconds, down from 20 seconds.

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

- Centaur Impaler hitpoints reduced to 350 from 450.

- 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

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.

Undead
- Gargoyles' ground attack was substantially upgraded.  They now do 21-24
  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.
- The Spirit Tower Upgrade now costs 160/40, up from 120/40.
- Crypt Fiends' attack was slightly improved.

Orcs
- Headhunters have more hit points (350, up from 280), but also strike more
  slowly.
- Stasis Trap no longer stuns friendly units, but has a shorter duration
  (6 seconds, down from 12 seconds).  Stasis Traps, when they are set off,
  also destroy other Stasis Traps within their area of effect.
- Kodo Beasts now have 1000 hit points, up from 790 hit points.  They also
  attack more slowly than before.
- Orc Barracks cost less lumber: 50, down from 70.
- Watch Towers now do 16-18 damage, down from 19-22 damage.
- 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.

- 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.

  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.

** 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.

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

14.- Frequently Asked Questions.

14.1.- Which is the best race/unit/hero?

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 ).

If I had to take a guess, I suppose the Orcs have been on the losing end
since the Tower Rush was fixed, but it could be a bit biased as I rarely
use them. I'm a huge Undead fan and I'm also skilled in TFT with the
Night Elves, though my friends would say it's because of an unhealthy
obsession with the Warden.

That said, there are a number of units that can be considered "The best",
though it's argueable anyway. It's generally agreed that the Huntress and
the Crypt Fiends are the best units for their race, power and cost
considered, given the Huntress frightenly effectivity at large numbers
and the Crypt Fiends large ammount of HP and great damage output. And
that it's probably because of the powerful sinergy with the Priestess of
the moon and the Death Knight. For Humans and Orcs, it gets a lot more
difficult, as their *best* units aren't even *fighting* units. The Sorceress
and the Shaman rank amongst their best critters, even if they aren't as
widely used as the Huntress and Crypt Fiends: Those are simply way too
efficient.

Between them, that's just a matter of personal taste. I'd go with the Crypt
Fiends because paired with the Death Knight they are simply superior (at
least in my opinion), though in paper the Huntress seem more effective.

Of course, no cost involved (or, actually, no *means to get the unit*
involved) both the Doom Guard and the Naga Royal Guard are fighting for
that title. Both units are ridiculously overpowered, are as strong as
heroes, have the same ammount of abilities and *chaos* damage. But of
course they aren't in, because they can't be actually built. (You *can*
get Doom Guards with a Pit Lord, but, as a matter of facts, I haven't
used the Pit Lord in at least a year). Between them, I think the Royal
Guard wins, but it's a close match.

As for heroes, it's a lot more difficult because only a few heroes can
be considered underpowered, while no longer any hero seems to be
overpowered anymore. For each race, I'll be listing my current guesses:

HUMAN: Archmage (which has been the elite hero since the game *came out*,
though some might argue that the Hero Killing Machine Mountain King it's
a lot more difficult to counter.)

ORCS: Far Seer (Ditto with above, though most people have switched to
the Shadow Hunter and use a similar strategy to the Crypt Fiend +
Death Knight Combo.)

UNDEAD: Death Knight (This one took a little time to actually be hit
upon, as most people favored the Dreadlord due to Sleep and Inferno. It's
curious, however, that the weakening of the Demon Hunter - since the
Dreadlord hasn't been touched ever - was the rise of the DK as a favorite,
which would lead to believe that the DH was actually keeping the DK
in check. Given that Mana Burn level three did 300 HP damage with burning
300 MP, no matter how short the range was, the DK low mana pool was always
in danger, though I don't know exactly if the imbalance was in fact due
to the heroes or because of the armies in general.)

NIGHT ELVES: Theoretically, the Demon Hunter. (That said, I'd put my
money in the Warden and the Keeper of the Grove before. The Demon Hunter's
weakening with TFT hasn't been enough to keep him in check - Metamorph it's
still an absurdly powerful spell. I'll stand with the Warden. But that
might be because I'm obssessed.)

NEUTRAL: The Goblin Tinker and the Firelord have been chosen due to their
powerful base razing abilities.


14.2.- Are there any new 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.- Don't tell me there isn't a new hidden track like in Beyond the Dark
Portal and Broodwars...

Yep there is. Check the damn appropiate section. :P

14.5.- The Orcs campaign is broken! Where is the rest?

Download Blizzard's latest patch. It will install the rest of
the campaign for you.

14.6.- My game doesn't has those cool neutral heroes!

Download Blizzard's latest patch. It will install the rest of
the heroes for you. Do you even know what the Internet is?

14.7.- Wasn't there a Panda race?

No. It was an April's Fool joke by Blizzard. The Pandaren Brewmaster
is a playable hero though, but unfortunatey, the rest aren't.

14.8.- 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).

Furthermore, there is an RPG module for all of you Role Players, which
I haven't been able to try, and a board game, which is very similar to
the classic board game RISK, except this one is unbalanced as hell
(The Orcs and the Night Elves are ridiculous, particulary the Orcs).

14.9.- Can you control the Burning Legion / Terrans / Zerg?

No.

14.10.- What maps do you recommend?

Well, Defense of the Ancients is always a good start. The latest version
(At the time of writing) is Allstars 6.27b, which still has a lot of
balance problems (on my playgroup, we've solved it through banning the
Bone Fletcher and the Sniper, and a couple others, but those two are
the more unbalancing) but at least God is removed (well, in the game).
Lucifer's still in (in the game too).

Skibi Castle TD is, very likely, the best TD map ever made. With lots of
minigames, and lots of variety, it's, in my opinion, an essential map.

Footmen Frenzy it's another great map, though some think a lot more of
it than myself (Then again, it might be because I always lose, and I
hate to have to save a lot of money to actually make my Lich worthy
of anything).

Finally, Eye of the Apocalypse it's another wonderful map, though it's
very heavy on the CPU, and it's very difficult to learn to play. I love
it, but it's left a bittersweet taste in my mouth, perhaps with more
people it's much better. (Playing against the AI it's beyond frustrating)

14.11.- How do I get better?

Well, you could start by watching some replays (replayers.com has a lot of
them and pretty good ones though!), and playing a lot. Seriously, Warcraft III
is by far one of the most complicated RTS games out there.

Or you could go cheap and follow one of the trends of the moment.

14.12.- Trends? What are the current trends?

Common strategies nowadays:

Orcs: Go Blademaster first, Shadowhunter, then Raiders, Spirit Walkers and
Kodos.

Humans: Archmage, Mountain King, Sorceress, Priests, Mortar Teams, then
a Paladin and a couple Knights. Works wonders as any of your units will
only rarely die.

Undead: Uh... Gargoyles. And Destroyers. The undead are currently the most
dominating race, and, while I love it, I can't really understand why,
except that having four nuking heroes might have something to do with
it.

Night Elves: Night elves are the most varied out there. Save for the
Druids of the talon and the Demon Hunter, you can go all the way for
dryads, Druids of the Claw, Archers, Huntress, Faerie Dragons, and
even mounted Hyppogryphs. Really, I saw a replay where a guy
dominated the whole game with *Mounted Hyppogryphs*. Incredible, but
true. And to add to the zaniness, he used a Warden first and the
Demon Hunter second. Go figure.

Important to note, save the always praised power of the Demon Hunter
and the fun packed Warden, the NE lack a secondary hero, which most
players have solved via the Pandaren Brewmaster.

That said, unlike, say, STARCRAFT, Warcraft III's strategy has shifted from
the mass-the-hell-up-and-rush to a more complicated style of keeping
units alive and using fewer but more effective units. The most elegant is
without a doubt the humans' play style, but the Orcish Horde well played is
extremely impressive. As for the Undead, well, I still don't understand,
but Gargoyles and Destroyers are incredibly dominating.

Of course, the gargoyles are the best anti-air unit, and the Destroyer's
damage output is ridiculous. And the four heroes are nukers :S. Another
replay I saw, a guy managed to time a Crypt Lord's Spike to stun the
opponent's whole army, and then proceded to kill the Demon Hunter, leaving
the army hopeless against continuous Frost Novas and a horde of Gargoyles.

As for the Night Elves, I recommend just adapting to the circunstances.
I ussually go for the Huntress-Archers duo until I can shift to DotT and
Dryads, using the Warden, but I'm weird: I use the Mountain King for the
Humans... though that's a frustration against Demon Hunter Harrassing.
Don't mind me.

16.- Credits.

- To Blizzard for this awesome game. This company rules.
- To Me, for taking parts of my very limited and valuable time to write this.
Actually, I enjoy it, but if I seem pissed off it makes me look cooler :P.
- To the people I've fought and seen for the ideas and strategies they have
left me with.
- To all the Warcraft Comunnity for making this game such a blockbuster hit
after six years of waiting for it. Now, of course, we need to complain until
they give us Starcraft II ^_^.
- To the people reading this. For the hell of it.
- To CjayC on gamefaqs.com for giving me and a lot of people the chance to
publish their work.
- Disturbed. Their new album is the r0xx0r5. And Queens of Stone Age.
- To my dear girlfriend Maga... for giving me all a man can need (love
and coffee!) Too bad you don't buy me cigarretes, though that is arguably
a good thing. I can always ask your for your parent's.

And that's it!!!

[1] Yana was a rather notorious user on the old Use Your Fist Not Your Mouth
Marilyn Manson BBS. You don't really need to know who she is, just that she
was a very nice though slightly psychotical girl whom I appreciated a lot.
That comment is just an old inside joke.
