- Meat Wagon - Forsaken Plague no longer deals friendly fire. Also changes Meat Wagons' missile to a cloudy green projectile. (Forsaken Plague is a fun ability, but was not worth using due to its friendly fire.)

If the afflicted unit dies while under the effect of Outbreak, four Maggots will spawn from its corpse. Also stores maggots inside the Abomination's body that crawl out to fight after its death. Now unlocks in Chapter Ten.

- Alexstrasza can now die during the Sindragosa and Lich King boss fights.
- Alexstrasza now resurrects all Heroes before the Lich King boss fight.

Known Issues
- If Quel'Delar is moved to a different spot in the inventory, its abilities
disappear. Drop it and pick it up again to fix the issue.
- Targeting circles fly above the ground in Chapter Six.
- A few sound effects can be heard mapwide.
- Sound effects that are ripped directly from WoW videos sometimes
may not be completely synced with the cinematic.
- Bolvar's Wave of Light special effect is invisible in Chapter Eight.

Id also like to see a more lore friendly version of this campaign, but you are the author and you decide about the story (and anything else :D) of your campaign.

That being said, its one of the best user made campaigns Ive played, it gave me the feeling of playing the original wc3 campaigns. Great work!

Glad you liked it, but I do tend to change parts of the lore that I don't like much or just change them so that they can fit into WC3.

I've really enjoyed the campaign so far: fun gameplay, unique units, not too hard and not too easy, good cinematics and well-done terrain.

Noticable bugs which I encountered so far were:
In chapter 6 when defending ogrimmar in the early stage, the crypt friends and beetles (which are supposed to spawn later with the cinematic when they unborrow) are constantly attacking heroes and units while they are not supposed to be there yet (they are not invisible aswell, tried dust and aoe abilities).

In chapter 11 after defeating basically all units and bosses, the 2nd and last icy gate doesnt open in the centre of the map.
I defeated varimathras first, which opened 1 of the doors, but after defeating the 2 valkyr bosses the 2nd door doesnt open. After checking everything I restarted the map and killed the bosses in the opposite order and that worked, but it should be able to kill them in any order.

Yeah, the bug from Chapter Six was there all along it seems, but since I'll be doing a relatively bigger update soon...ish, I won't be fixing it now, but in that update. And I dunno about that Chapter Eleven bug, never happened to me, but I'll check it out.

And i've tryed this one too, really well done but there are some imperfections. I like the changes to the lore, i expect to see more awesomeness :) meanwhile 5/5 (i would have voted 4/5 but it is only because i liked the other campaign more than this one, so it would not be fair)
Only a couple of things to point out:
-I got stuck on some points due to my debugging ability, ok my fault, you would not expect i'd try and fly to Alextrasza and fight the undead army reverse side.
-FAILSAFES! If you are to use units in cinematics you should use failsafe triggers to avoid cinematic failure: (SPOILERS) If the body of the Apotecary Phaleynne is vulnerable and you accidentaly (or was it?) kill it, upon reaching the frozen throne the cinematic will stop with sylvanas looking at the throne like trolling to you for doing stupid things like killing NPCs. Similar problem in another situation but i can't remember where :(
Failsafes are really important in various situations, not only for cinematics. Trust me, i'm an engineer.

That's all, nothing else to say except... Great job!!

press CTRL + S while ingame, OR go to MENU, and OPTIONS, and SOUND, and tick/select SOUND EFFECTS on, also check if it's towards the right. :) Hope this helps.

Thanks for you review, I actually almost fully agree with it. V.2.0 is going to change most of the stuff you mentioned. I'm glad you liked it, another great review from you!

Of course you're free to agree or disagree, I'd actually want to hear where you think different. You made 2 (well actually 3) wonderful games and I'm surely one of your most excited fans awaiting 2.0. After RotB2.0 I can't even imagine what you will make out of CotF.

Never lose your spirit :)

Edit: If you consider making sylvannas less bloodhungry-seeming in the end I'd appreciate it. The Original Ending is fine, but on a second shot why not make the ending different^^ I hope I'll be informed when it's ready, I tend to lose myself inside campaigns, to better get a feeling of it.

hey maybe you can put this unit as a messenger which informs Sylvanas at the base:
Farstrider Hunter
It's recently made, and maybe the preview image will show the old version, just see the most recent comments for an actual picture :)
I like it, simple, but interesting as a messenger.
Edit: Oh I posted this in the wrong post, but whatever, sorry. xD

Hmm, I assume it's because you're playing on mac. Some other people with mac also had some problems with the campaign. Unfortunately, I can't help you out here since I don't own a mac :\

I'd like to thank you for making an absolutely stunning campaign. As I loved the official campaigns I prefer custom campaigns of similar style, and I found exactly what I wanted in “Curse of the Forsaken”. I reckon it must have taken quite some time to make this, and I am glad you took the time to do so. Thank you!
  • Story: 5/5
    The story is well scripted. Though it follows official lore to some degree it also features alternate events, the result enabling the player to feel like a part of the story while still retaining the “what's-gonna-happen” element. Both quests and fights are fun.

  • Terrain: 5/5
    The maps are gorgeous and could have been made by Blizzard. They feature several details which allows the player to “get into” the game instead of being annoyed at lacking or out-of-place stuff. I especially liked the custom trees and buildings, and the arena in chapter 11 was insane.

  • Units: 5/5
    Custom units and their abilities, researches, and upgrades are well executed and provide interesting alternatives to the official version. Both the models and the related icons look quite good. The skeleton is perhaps even better than its official counterpart. The occasional custom sound sets are also great.

The campaign does however include some minor problems. I decided to collect them as I played in order to give some, uh, proper feedback. I've also included personal suggestions. My list may seem a bit intimidating, but keep in mind that it's mainly minor or optional stuff. Sorry if I'm repeating issues that other people have already mentioned.


  • Error = (bugs, glitches) Problems which interfere with gameplay, both technically and storywise.
  • Game suggestion = my personal suggestions to improve the campaign. Features high levels of purely personal opinion.
  • Typo = Pointing out some typos so they can be fixed.
  • Text suggestion = not exactly typos, but similar. Mainly text change suggestions.

    Generic:

  • Error: Jaina's Time Warp uses the hotkey 'A'; same as general Attack.
  • Error: The selection circle for Jaina's Telekinesis is raised some distance in the air from level 8; Alone in Darkness. This makes it harder to properly select targets.
  • Error: A recurring problem is that units are not paused (or however it works) during cinematics, instead continuing to attack eachother.
  • Error: Another cinematic problem seems to be that cinematics use use “actual” units instead of temporary cinematic-purpose duplicates. For example, in the official campaigns it doesn't have to be a problem that a hero is currently dead; he will still appear in cinematics. In this campaign, however, dead heroes will not appear (because they're dead) which can mess up cinematics badly.
  • Game suggestion: Phaelynne: alter her demon-ability to increase the number of minions. That is, instead of just replacing the minion summoned, let rank1 summon an Imp, rank2 summon an Imp + a Voidwalker, and rank 3 summon an Imp, a Voidwalker, and a Succubus. This would probably have to be done by triggers, however.
  • Game suggestion: Phaelynne: Perhaps change her ultimate spell to not be the same as Varimathras? Since she is supposed to be a master apothecary, an additional potion-like spell would suit her. I suggest using either a potion-item-ability or something by the Goblin Alchemist. Alternatively she may get a fifth ability, similarly to how Cenarius had Cyclone.
  • Game suggestion: Give Varimathras at least one custom ability.
  • Game suggestion: Several units use official sound sets that include quotes that fit badly with lore. For example, many units allied with the Forsaken in this campaign salute the Lich King and Ner'zhul. I believe it should be possible to fix this by replacing individual quotes (“Replace Internal Sound”) in certain units' sound sets (based on the number of quotes) with suitable quotes, technically making custom unit sound sets. I'm not sure if most people would be willing to make the hassle with this, though.
  • Game suggestion: Several units with “auto-toggable” abilities are acquired/summoned without any such ability toggled by default. This is a minor annoyance as the player is forced to activate the ability whenever a unit is acquired. If the player forgets this, it can change the outcome of battles. It would be nice if these abilities could be toggled 'on' by default. Examples of such units/abilities include:
    - Dark Rangers​
    - Val'kyr​
    - Phaelynne's Imp​
    - Phaelynne's Succubus​
    - Jaina's Time Warp​
    - Sylvanas' Black Arrow (even though it's the same in the official campaign)​
    - Vereesa's Cold Arrows (from level 10, Broken Alliances)​
    - The Banshees summoned by Sylvanas' Call of the Queen​
    In addition, it would have been convenient if the following abilities could be auto-toggled (but not necessarily 'on' by default):
    - Apothecary's Shadow Bolt​
    - Phaelynne's Voidwalker's Taunt​
  • Game suggestion: The minimap team/faction colors are sometimes a bit confusing. For example, having different bases showing as the same color because they are technically allied is logical, but also makes it hard to determine what base you are fighting against (example: the orc bases in level 3, Icy Menace). It likewise makes it tricky to determine the movement and status of various armies (example: in level 10, Broken Alliances, different enemy and allied forces will often be merged together in an unclear mess). As such, it might be a better idea of let different factions retain their minimap-colors. Just be sure to use colors that somewhat match the lore (i.e: Scourge: green, purple, orange, Alliance/elves: red, blue, light blue, teal, etc)! :) This is of purely personal opinion, though.
  • Game suggestion: Personally I'm a fan of exotic items (The Founding of Durotar was a heaven for me), so I think it'd be great if you could include some of this. Not just “old” items with new icons and/or names, but items granting abilities not previously used for items. Non-official custom icons could also greatly spice them up.
  • Game suggestion: The game will sometimes start with the camera set in a location other than above the units you are likely to command first. Setting it to above such a location would be a minor improvement.
  • Game suggestion: In lore, the Scarlet Crusade does not employ non-humans. Perhaps it'd be an idea to swap the Priest model with the Emissary one? I guess the Rifleman should have been replaced with something too, though I'm not quite sure what.
  • Game suggestion: The cheat code “AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs” does not work (I tried using it for testing purposes). I guess the reason is that it's a custom campaign, but perhaps it might be an idea to add a trigger for making it work?
  • Typo: Your English is good, but typos do unfortunately occur. The most common one is that the word “the” is missing. I've noted down some others I've noticed in the sections below, but personally I'd check through all the texts. Perhaps you could ask a friend to help proofread?

    THE CAMPAIGN LEVELS:

    Level 1: (Unnecessary Intervention)

  • Error: If all the lesser scarlet bases are destroyed prior to destroying the base you are supposed to destroy first (the one behind the gate), and then destroy the gate-base, the second cinematic (in which they discover the main base) will play instead of the exploding-soldier one. If you then destroy the main base, the exploding-soldier cinematic and final cinematic will merge together.
  • Error: I may be wrong, but is Varimathras red (faction color) in one of them and blue in the other..?
  • Typo (chapter title): "Unecessary" (Unnecessary)
  • Typo (final cinematic): "attacl"

    Level 2: (Aiding the Cursed)

  • Error: When I played the campaign, level 2 was never included. The game simply jumped straight to level 3.
  • Game suggestion: Perhaps give a reward for completing the optional quest?
  • Game suggestion: Make the Crusader base more powerful. It can easily be defeated without the Gargoyles.
  • Typo (second cinematic): "atacking"
  • Typo (second cinematic): "techtics" (or something)

    Level 3: (Icy Menace)

  • Error: Phaelynne is the one giving advice of ogre base - not possible.
  • Error: The Apothecaries' Alchemic Decay can be used on allies.
  • Error: The Cannon Tower is not given to player upon ogre base destruction.
  • Error: Phaelynne's icon on score screen is the same size as a regular hero icon. Well, I'm not sure if this can be helped. Perhaps with an image editor program..?
  • Typo (loading screen description): "one of the way through the mountain" → ways

    Level 4: (Forsaken Incursion)

  • Error: Peasants can be possessed (by Banshees) and then build human buildings and train human units.
  • Error: Varimathras can make quotes even after he has escaped and given his base to Balnazzar.
  • Error: The mechanics of Warcraft III terrain are good, but in slopes there may occasionally be some "tearing". This is particularly notable in this level due to the yellow background (image).
  • Game suggestion: Perhaps some better rewards for purging Dalaran?
  • Text suggestion: Optional quest: “undead forces” → Scourge forces.
  • Text suggestion (final cinematic): Balnazzar: “(...) I think you should be ready to face YOUR demise.” (after Sylvanas has told him that he is to face his)
  • Text suggestion (final cinematic): Phaelynne: “under mind control from Varimathras” → “control by Varimathras”.

    Level 5: (Might of the Forsaken)

  • Error: Thrall may say "Protect me, Sylvanas!" while being dead.
  • Error: Thrall can activate circles of closed portals. This will still start the countdown, summon demons, and trigger the number of portals closed.
  • Error: The demons erupting from portals may apparently stack up if your forces fail to defeat them (and to close the portal). (At least this goes for the portal in Varimathras' base.) This means it will be harder to close a portal each time you fail, because every failure increases the number of demons "guarding" the portal.
  • Error: Thrall can seemingly... fall asleep during night? Possibly because of his “faction” when he's closing a portal.
  • Typo (final cinematic): “Ogirmmar” (or something like that)
  • Text suggestion (loading screen description): “Thrall, warchief of the Horde decided” → Thrall, warchief of the Horde, decided
  • Text suggestion (end cinematic): “be back once” → “be back”

    Level 6: (The Hesitant Alliance)

  • Game suggestion: Perhaps give some new/more powerful items to the heroes, since 4 years have passed?
  • Game suggestion: Perhaps implement some interesting items as drops from hidden monsters?. It's often interesting to kill monsters and obtain powerful treasures while you are “supposed” to actually be guarding your base. The treasures in “Countdown to Extinction” and “Under the Burning Sky” are good examples.

    Level 7: (Into the Frozen Heart Of...)

  • Error: The vision of Varimathras in the orange undead base does not disappear, and your forces may kill him.
  • Error: Val'kyrs on foot can be possessed. That's pretty cool, but even these will have to be killed to complete the optional quest.
  • Game suggestion: Perhaps give a reward for the optional quest, in addition to the Chimes that drop anyway?
  • Typo (mid-game cinematic): "mesenger" (messenger)

    Interlude: The King's Orders

  • Game suggestion: Remove the trees in front of Arthas.

    Level 8: (Alone in Darkness)

  • Game suggestion: Put some loot or monsters in the egg sacks! :)
  • Text suggestion (final cinematic): Change "thank God" to "thank the Light". I don't think they believe in God in the WarCraft universe (besides the churches in WC1 and WC2, at least) and the Light is the WarCraft-version of God anyway.
  • Typo (loading screen description): "Azjol'nerub" (Azjol-Nerub)

    Level 9: (Hour of the Forsaken)

  • Error: This level has heavy problems with things happening in the correct order. The intended order is (if I remember correctly):
    1. Avoid the Lich King's yellow base​
    2. Rescue the Blood Elves​
    3. Kill the Frost Wyrms​
    4. Destroy Kel'Thuzad's base​
    5. Get to Alexstraza​
    6. Watch cinematic in which yellow base is destroyed​
    However, I did it like this:
    1. Destroy the yellow base. “Off you go, Arthas!”​
    2. Destroy the middle base. “Oh hey, there's another base here.”​
    3. Destroy the Frost Wyrms without rescuing the elves. “Val'kyrs + Gryphons is the way to go!”​
    4. Destroy Kel'Thuzad's base. “I ruined your master's base, and now I ruin yours!”​
    5. Destroy the undeads that are about to attack Alexstraza, before they even get the chance to do so. “Smack-pow!”​
    6. Rescue the blood elves and watch all cinematics merge into eachother. Except for the Phaelynne + Varimathras one, that'll be skipped by the game​
    In order words, unless the player progresses exactly as planned, things will get rather glitchy. Solutions may be to make the undead buildings invincible (either temporarily or permanently) or add pathing blockers. Sorry for being one of people that mess stuff up, I have a habit of destroying things when I've got the chance..!
  • Error: The above issue also makes it possible to complete the optional quest prior to discovering it.
  • Error: During the cinematic in which Varimathras kidnaps Phaelynne again, the green summoning effect is not properly at the same location as him.
  • Error: Since the blood elves do not have a proper Town Halls/Keep/Castle, their Arcane Vault cannot sell some things.
  • Game suggestion: Perhaps have the blood elves' Arcane Vault sell something else than human items?
  • Game suggestion: Give Vereesa and Lor'Themar some default items.
  • Text suggestion (after killing Anub'arak): Jaina: "let's go out" → "let's get out"


    Level 10: (Broken Alliances)

  • Error: Units can somewhat walk into the walls at the Icecrown Citadel (more precisely, at the entrance).
  • Error: Some trees are located inside walls.
  • Game suggestion: Add some monsters or treasures - from the blood elves' Arcane Vault, perhaps?
  • Text suggestion (final cinematic): "end all of it" instead of "end all of that".

    Level 11 / Finale: (Fall of the Lich King)

  • Error: The Fountain of Health is partially hovering in mid-air. Misplaced?
  • Error: Phaelynne can be attacked (and killed) while on the ground, after the cinematic in which she dies. If the player does kill her (though I don't see why anyone would do such a horrid thing <cough>), it will mess up the final cinematic.
  • Error: When entering the room with the Frostmourne Pedestal, the sword is briefly hovering above it.
  • Error: The spirit of Terenas can be attacked while "inside Frostmourne".
  • Game suggestion: Give the Spirit Warden another model, else it can be confused with the Avatar of Vengeance.
  • Game suggestion: When Phaelynne becomes the new Lich King Queen, it might be possible to copy the ice-encasement shown in the official Bolvar version by using Freezing Breath's target-effect.

    Level 12: (Epilogue)

  • Error: Sylvanas can kill her allied units.
  • Typo (loading screen description): "apppointed" (appointed)

    I played this campaign on Windows 8.1.

EDIT: Sorry that I keep on applying small edits to my post (in case you're noticing it). There is always a minor typo or something I've forgotten that remains. Hopefully I'm getting closer to it being "complete".

That's such a long list! Thanks for doing that! I love it when people take so much time to post these things. I'm also really glad you liked it. You should also check out my other campaign: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/maps-564/rise-blood-elves-v2-0-a-245153/.

I don't really have time to read the list now, I'll do it once I come back home and tell you my thoughts, but if you're interested, I'm working on an updated version of Curse of the Forsaken, you can check it out here and post even more of your suggestions if you got any: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/map-development-202/tomoraiders-campaign-series-247985/

Awesome , many people watched your devolepment of this great campaign . Cant wait to play it . I think your campaign is a record , the biggest single campaign at size , but the size doesnt matter to much for a great campaign like this .
