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.
coz the dark warden or the risen NE wardens are just new in WoW. Undead NE Wardens doesnt exist or at least known in wc3 even wc1 i assume? anyways nice skin for the wardens, good for Dark Elves!

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