Aletharion's Lair

Map Info

This is an altered melee-style, Reforged friendly map for 6 players.



Features

  • 22 gold mines
  • 6 green camps
  • 2 brown camps
  • 16 to 22 red camps
  • 2 gobelin hutts
  • 2 mercenary camps
  • A central dragon camp for recruitment
  • 6 starting locations
  • Minions do not give "+1 tomes" but "+2" (always)
  • 2 extra hero options for each playable race

This map is intended to give a bit of a challenge to seasoned players in quite a few ways, with :
  • An unusual starting placement of the players
  • An equally unusual position of the main outpost compared to its goldmine
  • Minions that give better (sometimes legendary!) items
  • Closer goldmines and general creeps harder to defeat than in traditionnal melee
  • The extra hero options for each playable race
  • All players being kinda close from each other



Some other stuff about Aletharion's Lair

"The black dragon Aletharion's legendary treasure has drawn many expeditions to this frozen land. Beware the numerous outlaws, wildlings and dark mages that fight over the place!"

Change Log

Version 1.0

First release on March 21st, 2020.



Version 1.1

  • Fixed an issue where the Highborn's arcanic shield did not appear
  • Added description to the missing slots of the Murloc Oracle's abilities
  • Added some more tile paint, mountains and doodads to embellish the borders
  • Slightly modified some tree placements
  • Added a from-the-above map view to the preview panel



Known issues
  • Please know that there will be bugs, as I did this map on my own with not much experience. Do not hesitate telling me if you ever find some that are not already listed below.
  • The Demonist and Murloc Oracle heroes do not have hero glow
  • In some very specific cases, you might only be able to have only two heroes (working on it, please give info if you encounter this bug)

Final words




Author's notes

I hope you'll have fun playing this map. This is my second contribution to the Hive, yeah!
Please be nice and argumentative in the comment section, as I do my best to respond to everyone.
(Also, have in mind I'm not a native English speaker, therefore it can be tough to understand you guys, sometimes!) I am looking forward to hearing your thoughs about this entry!

See you!

    Hello there! Just wanted to know if there's some kind of procedure to ask for a moderator's review? I did not have the need for my previous map as it was done within days, but this one has been online for a couple weeks and I'm afraid it never gets verified :/
