DALARAN v2.5.2
Created by wa666r

[​IMG]
Map Info:

First alternate melee in my series of maps involving lore races/factions from the Warcraft universe. This addition allows the players to explore and play as the knowledgeable people of Dalaran.

Dalaran, the most sapient of the seven human kingdoms, and the only few that maintain immense manipulation over magics and the arcane arts. The faction has long been the substratum for some of the most puissant mages; thus giving them reputation as a cesspool of erudition and study. From their cognizance, the mages bring forth spells of devastating magics; capable of eradicating whole armies. When rallying the casters may utilize their mana reserves to preserve countless lives and repel any enemy that threatens their precious libraries and magic holds. However, even with the most advanced skills in the arcane arts, the people of Dalaran failed to halt the onslaught from Arthas and the foul Undead Scourge; resulting in evoking the Burning Legion to force Dalaran's untimely demise. Now with their influence diminished, the refugees of Dalaran sought reclamation.

Features:

Play as a new race, and behold the tactics and abilities to utilize their various strategies to bring the fight to the enemy.

- 4 Custom Heroes: Arcane Curator, Thaumaturge, Spell Officer, and High Wizard.

NEW HERO


  • [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Affiliation: Dalaran
    Role: Anti-Magic/Offense
    Race: Elven
    Gender: Male

    Though a rare sight, the Thaumaturge can witnessed enforcing the laws of magic with devastating calculations. All the Thaumaturges were once poor and poverty stricken people. These poor sous had all been approached by a mysterious hooded man who gave them a choice to have power beyond their comprehension, or starve and die like filth. Those that chose the first then knew the difficulties that came with bearing such forces. The mages were trained in secret at various unknown and magically hidden locations of Dalaran and secluded mountainsides. Through multiple years of vigorous study, intense mental preparation, and managing with backlash of mana, the few that survived transformed from poor fools to the most elite spell enforcers that can match even the greatest Archmages. They may initially send a wave of Anti-Energy to sear the flesh and mind, causing those afflicted to harm their own entity with each attempt at retaliation. With such great magical forces surging through the Thaumaturge, they infuse their own body with the existing mana granting greater haste added from the mana surges; and transferring the negative energy towards their foes to force the mana reserves to backfire . Not only do they manage to diminish their enemies of any mana from their capabilities, but the sheer mind concentration from the Thaumaturge trumps the focus of their foes with ease. As the last resort when dealing with those that will not vanquish so easily, these enforces instantly destroy and mana reserves their enemies around them hold, all the while imbuing himself with aggressive backlash magic which wrecks those who ran dry of their mana.

    The Arcane Curator is a fascinating archer who has trained for ages to master her arts in the arcane. She had been a loyal member of the Dalaran's elites, and has a strict resolve to protect Dalaran and her people from their foes. Even though she wields mighty arcane spells that can eradicate any enemy, she is also proficient in her people's art of bow mastery; thus when combining her natural skill of archery along with the arcane magics, the Arcane Curator becomes a terrifying foe. She is able to imbue an arrow with arcane energies that not only severely wounds the enemy, but also destroying their magical essence in the process. The Arcane Curator has a certain love for keeping her Quiver magically honed; allowing the arrows inside to absorb their essence. hen her own magical powers seem to wane, she is able to regain it back from the magically fit enemies which she attacks with; a truly powerful capability.

    Affiliation: Dalaran
    Role: Offensive/Support/Summoning
    Race: Human
    Gender: Female

    The Arcanist studied various fields of magic before deciding their calling in the Arcane arts. These mages were already magnificently experienced with magics as they studied the methods of utilizing the magic in the air and space to their advantage. With a single incantation, the Arcanist sends a wave of negated mana to ravage enemy's magical essence then transfer the burn to it's vitality. To further advance in their arcane course they may cast a spell to unlock the mind of the afflicted, allowing any incoming or outgoing spell to re-energize it. To show their demonstration of their arcane prowess, the Arcanist spawns a elemental from the aether; yet even with all their confidence, the aether places a burden upon the caster, scolding them with silence and pain.

    [​IMG] Ability Name: Inversion

  • [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Affiliation: Dalaran
    Role: Support/Range
    Race: Elven
    Gender: Male

    The Charmer is a unique attacker wielding a powerful whip materialized out of arcane magics. For many years the Charmers have been practicing to hone their skill in order to better serve the nation of Dalaran; and when the time came, they were prepared. During the Undead Scourge invasion of Dalaran, the Charmers fought valiantly keeping the numerous undead ground troops and flyers at bay. Only once their mana reserves ran dry did the Charmers have to retreat. For without their mana, the powerful mana is highly ineffective. The Charmers are invaluable on the battlefield; providing aggressive support fire.

    [​IMG] Ability Name: Mana Whip
    Ability description
    As long as the Charmer's mana reserves are upheld at 25 points or more, all attacks deal double damage.

    [​IMG] Ability Name: Tri-Whip
    Ability description
    The Charmer charges up a single strike that strikes three nearby enemy units dealing 50 damage each.



  • [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Affiliation: Dalaran
    Role: Siege
    Race: Elemental
    Gender: Unknown

    The Aether Elemental is a mysterious flying creature formed from the Elements held in the stars and space. These creatures serve the Dalaran focuses only because of the mighty magics that bind their will to the Dalaran. Though not much is known about the Aether Elementals, it is understood that they wield stellar magics that can ravage any strongholds in mass. The creature can almost always call upon the Moon's beams to lighten and reveal the most valuable information, all the while striping the plating; leaving the structures very vulnerable.

    [​IMG] Ability Name: Stellar Shower
    Ability description
    The Aether Elemental sends out a multitude of stellar bolts to many of nearby enemy structures, which deal simultaneous damage to all the structures.

    [​IMG] Ability Name: Astral Beam
    Ability description
    Sens a beam of light upon an enemy building, causing a reduction of armor by 5, and grants vision of them for 60 seconds.

[​IMG]
Generators: The people of Dalaran are not known for their sturdy structures and mastership of the stone. So it makes no sense to have the structures be mighty and withholding. Instead, they should have some sort of magical empowerment to add some durability. And that is exactly what I had implemented with the Generators.

The Generators have the ability of Binding, which increases armor and hit point regeneration of nearby structures. This ability is essential for a functional defense of the Dalaran people. Binding starts out as only adding 2 armor, but is upgradable to increase armor added to 4 then 6, as well as increased hit point regeneration. If the Generator is not within range of nearby structures, those structures will not gain any bonuses. The Generator is the only structure with higher armor; cannot receive the bonuses from Binding.

This tactic is also essential for the fact that "Rectify" takes twice as long to repair as structure, and repairing the Arcane Tower is substantially more expensive; thus making the hit point regeneration bonus a great asset both economically and defensively.

[​IMG]
Mana, Mana, Mana: I case you did not know, Dalaran is faction that is completely fixated on the magical world and the properties that it wields. So it's only the smart thing to do with this faction. You will notice that most units have some sort of affinity for magic. And in order to actually to have an effective army, the player needs to sustain a sufficient mana cesspool. Most units are highly depended on mana, so I made a simple source of mana to regain what was lost.

The Generators that serve to empower the bases' structures also serve to regenerate nearby friendly units' mana; but their capability to restore mana is quite frail, making the need for a multitude of Generators.

    Well, I hope that this map will get approved, but it seems like the map is stuck in the "pending" state for a long while.

    Another great custom race from you!
    I liked the War Wagon siege unit. Good use of the Wagon model!
    Another 5/5 for you good sir! :thumbs_up:

    And about a new custom race, you should do demons!
