What is this map about?
Whether or not you have already played our Warcraft III map, Bosses of Warcraft is an expansive project created to combine the elements of Professions, Dungeons and raid-style Bosses with the highly adaptable Warcraft III engine to create a unique user experience.

    • With an active community on both Discord and Battle.net, Bosses of Warcraft lobbies are constantly available with hosts across the globe. On the discord, dedicated guilds, staff members, and players ensure a welcoming experience, providing answers to any questions.

    • Constant development ensures rapid updates including new dungeons, graphics, user interfaces, and other unique and exciting features that you will not find anywhere else.

The map concept for BoW has been in development for over 11 years with the first map being publicly released on Epicwar 9th of July 2009. This is the 4th rendition of the map and has been in development since May 2017.


We're a considerably large team for a Warcraft 3 map. Some of us are students, some of us work fulltime jobs, and Bosses of Warcraft is something that we enjoy working on during our free time.
Team Picture


Bosses of Warcraft features epic 24 player boss fights inspired by the map Impossible Bosses, made by Psyris. It uses a save/load system to enable players to save and load their progress as they advance further into the map.

  • [​IMG]
    A spell caster without peer, the Magician is able to both aid his allies in battle but also unleash magical havoc upon his foes. Magicians are not to be underrestimated, for their balance of offensive and defensive spells is what makes them an ally like no other. While their single target damage is not the greatest, when it comes to vanguishing multiple enemies, there is not one class that does the job quite as efficiently as the Magician.

    -The highest area burst damage.
    -Can also aid allies with buffs and disorient enemies as well as recover mana.
    -Able to create magical barriers on teammates.
  • [​IMG]
    The master of divine arts, protecting his allies as they defeat the forces of evil. On his own he is not able to do much, but together with his group he can make them unstoppable. The healer can keep your allies up, healthy and full of fighting spirit, and is thus essential to any group.

    -Recovery magic that allows your teammates to presist.
    -Timed buffs and areas that reduce the damage taken significantly.
    -Able to specialize in single target or area healing, and even defending himself.
  • [​IMG]
    The cornerstone of any good party. The Tank absorbs damage from enemies, standing as a guardian between his foes and his allies. While they are not able to do as much direct damage to enemies as the other classes, they are able to harm stronger opponents by weakening and breaking their rythm of the battle.

    -Great area and single target disruption.
    -High sustain and may also protect others.
    -Causes more threat than other classes.
  • [​IMG]
    A hero that strives in danger, the Duelist is able to deal the highest amount of single target damage and destruction upon enemies. While the Duelist should be covered by a tank whom is able to keep threat, when that condition is met, there is no class as destructive and fast.

    -Can be built both ability based and basic attack based.
    -The highest single target damage.
    -Has the ability to increase attack speed and attack damage for allies.
  • [​IMG]
    A master of the bow as well as the gun, the Ranger class utilizes physical damage from long distance, being able to deal consistant damage especially when focusing down a lone prey. The Ranger is able to outmanouver his opponents, dealing damage while dodging enemy attacks and making his retreat. When you need damage that you can depend on, the Ranger will be ready to strike down your foes.

    -Able to mix between area damage and single target damage mastery.
    -Can keep up consistent damage from far away.
    -Has the ability to dodge attacks while attacking.


Bosses of Warcraft balances itself depending on how many players are in a dungeon. Multible groups can run different dungeons at the same time. If you are running a dungeon with a bigger group, monsters, bosses and rewards will scale.


  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Potions are key in any battle. Brew elixirs and flasks that persist through death to enhance your stats in battle. Stack up on healing potions and mana potions to ensure your longlivity while partaking in dungeon activities.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Smith magical, enchanted weapons for you and your team, provide deadly bombs to throw at the enemy and increase your tanking ability with heavy mail armors protecting your skin and bone.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Weave fine silk clothing to enhance your healing and magical abilities.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Craft mobile leather-wear to maximize your agility in battle.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Fishing provides many of the nessesary materials required to proceed in crafting. Ever wondered what's in those potions? Ever asked why your teammate's brand new helmet smells of fish scale? Ever speculated what horrors lurk beneath those tides? Grab a fishing net and some bait - you are about to find out.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    Got green hands and a lot of patience? Herblore provides resourceful flowers and trees to be used as materials for other professions.
  • [​IMG][​IMG]
    One of the hardest professions to level in the game also happens to be one of the most beneficial to you and your team. Craft scrolls to enhance your skill in battle and craft glyphs to permanently increase your stats and help your teammates blossom in their profession of choice by enchanting their mining picks, skinning knifes and fishing nets!

BoW ORPG v1.31k (Map)

Shar Dundred
I am personally not a huge fan of ORPGs but I believe that this map is going to have its fanbase and people will enjoy it. Personally I think it is a nice map overall despite not being my personal type of map. Approved!

    Combat is interesting for dps heal and tank classes alike and they all require some kinda skill. The dungeons are pretty well made with some cool mechanics that stay challenging for a while. A decent crafting system which is a bit of a long grind but that's fine for the type of map. The system with waves gets a little repetitive and I think it'd be nice to mix things up a bit for future dungeons.
    Impressive amount of work put in getting all the rpg elements to the warcraft engine. Cosmetics like wings, mounts, pets, well working inventory system, dps/heal meters, very customized interface to match the type of game, combat system with all lots of unique items and abilities. The terraining is quite nice as well.

    I'd suggest adding some more 'lower rank' content in the future as well, it takes quite some time to get to a viable 2nd dungeon set, just to have some more variation in what to progress through. Keep up the good work, one of the most impressive wc3 projects i've seen. 5/5

    Hands down best ORPG in Warcraft3. 5/5.
