    I'm glad you like it :)
    It's actually kind of suprising that a skin like this doesn't already exist for the original wc3.

    A Warden is prepared even in Death!

    (still don't know why she still sides with Sylvanas in Shadowlands)

    they made Cata Thrall, BFA Jaina, Legion Cenarius and Alternate Arthas, they have reasons to publish Forsaken Warden as a skin

    Looks splendid. But is it maybe possible to reduce the file size of this? 12MB seems a steep opportunity cost for “just” a re-texture.

    maybe some of the less visible parts can be reduced in quality to have a smaller file?

    The emissive and probably the cloth texture can be downsized to reduce size without giving much visual difference.

    Exactly, while I recently started saving all Diffuse in DXT5 (alpha looks better, and the quality is overall slightly better), I would suggest reducing the image size of Emissive by 50% (propbably from 2048x2048 to 1024x1024), as well as saving it as DXT1A, the file size will be very small.
    You also might want to do it to the DDS file, not your master file with layers, if you ever want to make changes.

    I attempted to reduce the file sizes of the various textures to a more appealing 4 mb in total, and didn't notice any quality loss in-game, so I see this as an absolute win!
    Thanks for the feedback and advice :)

    I don't know why but I'm having a hard time importing this skin. It's been a long time since I imported any skins in WC3 so I may have just forgotten how to do it .-. or it just seems different to me, idk.

    You just gotta import each of the textures with the import manager and then re-name their file paths with those of my textures.
    For example:
    war3mapImported\nightelf_herowarden_main_diffuse.dds --> units\nightelf\herowarden\nightelf_herowarden_main_diffuse.dds
    After doing that for each of the textures, you're done!

    I hope that helped. :)
