Defense of the World Pillar v1.2

Azeroth Defenders: Defense of the World Pillar
Created by aiDer

Hello, and welcome to the last days of Deathwing, the Corrupted Earth Warder! I hope you will have as much fun with this unique HeroDefense as I had making it. I highly recommend you to find a friend(s) to play this with, for the extra intensity and to really feel the teamwork functions do their job, however everything is so much more fun when playing with someone else. A friend and I had a lot of fun with this map in the early BETA, so I assure you that it's even better now! Enjoy!

Currently: I have moved on to music production and studying micro- and nanotechnology, so I will not update this map every often. Maybe I get an urge to sit down with the editor in a few months and make a lot of changes. But I think the game is very entertaining when playing with friends, so I will put this on pause a little. If you find any bugs or errors please send me a PM ;)

Map Info:
AD: DotWP is a combination of AoS, Survival, Hero Defense, Footmen Frenzy, Offense, TD.

For you who have played the first chapter; AD: Defense of Stormwind, will see that this second chapter have a lot of the same concept, but with a lot of improvements. The defending players (The Earthern Ring) still starts with choosing a Hero, and then upgrading their headquarter to either a Defensive or Offensive one. After some defending and boosting your hero with items and abilities, its time to retaliate and destroy Deathwing's bases. Push towards the bases the waves of enemies are coming from until Deathwing is provoked fourth, then put the Corrupted Earth Warder to rest!

The attacking players (Deathwing's "Twilight's Hammer" and "Darktide Naga") still need to pick their units and create a squad that will interrupt and slow down the defenders progress. They also need to defend bases the defenders need to destroy, while also trying to attack the Deepholm Gate and interrupt the Shamans sealing off the Deepholm entrance. The new thing in AD: DotWP is that special units is removed, and attacking players can pick between a few units that are a little better than normal, up to 20 food limit, some units cost 10 food others cost down to 1 food. These units is the only units the attacking players can control (except bosses), because attacking players can also buy units that automaticly will attack the Deepholm Gate (like offensive units). The reason for this is that in AD: DoS there were too many units to controll, it turned into a spamfest and little strategy. Tower building is still available through the Shade (like AD: DoS). In DotWP, Shades can also level up to a maximum level of 20, they got four abilities they can learn and each ability got 10 levels, so you can max two of them, or all four to level 5. Every minute you get as much experience for your Shade as you got Combat Points, so the more active you are the more experience your Shade get, some units also cost Combat Points, so buying those decrease the amount of experience your shade gets.
When Deathwing broke out of his prison in Deepholm and caused the Cataclysm, he destroyed the World Pillar, which
held all stone and mass of Azeroth and prevented it from collapsing into Deepholm.

Quickly the good-hearted druids and shamans of The Earthern Ring gathered to rebuild the shattered World Pillar.
And with help the Stone Lords of Deepholm and some of Azeroth's finest heroes from The Alliance and The Horde,
the rebuilding of the World Pillar was done in a hurry.

Now, Deathwing seeks to destroy the World Pillar once more. Only this time, he will not leave fragments to rebuild.

The Earthern Ring have called YOU to aid them in sealing off the entrance to Deepholm. With enough time and
the combined powers of the elements, the shamans can build a blockade so strong that Deathwing never can break through to the World Pillar. If the sealing fails, Azeroth will be destroyed...

Defense of the World Pillar takes place at Vedok Isle. Vedok Isle seems like a tiny meaningless
isle in the Echo Isle group, but during the Cataclysm shamans from the The Earthern Ring have been informed that Vedok Isle holds the
Gate of Deepholm, which is the only entrance to the elemental plane of Earth; Deepholm.

Playable Map Size: 125x155
Trees/Destructible: NO destructible trees in this map, only beautiful custom trees.
Doodads (Other): Over 17 000 doodads placed with love.
Players: 1-8

Main objective: The Earthen Ring have already started to seal off the entrance to Deepholm, and need your help to defend them while they do it! The sealing will take days, so all of Vedok Isle must be secured!

Loss condition: Gate of Deepholm is destroyed, resulting in exposing the shamans doing the sealing progress.

Optional: Hunt down Merciless Turtles for a nice bounty.

Main objective: Destroying the Deepholm Gate, while defending Deathwing's bases with squads of units and tower building.

Loss condition: Deathwing the Destroyer is defeated.

Here I will add text that explains a normal game of Defense of the World Pillar, so you get how it is.

-The most important tip first; Shadow of Death can be spawned by Twilight Cultists (Acolyte model) if there are corpses around. Shadow of Death is a huge untargetable green skull that move very slowly, but if it get close to an enemy, it will damage it a lot. To avoid this insane damage, avoid the skull until its gone or kill the Twiligth Cultist first (if the Cultist die first, there is no corpse it can spawn Shadow of Death from in the first place.
-If you choose the Defensive Headquarter, place your towers close to the Gate of Deepholm, because the waves after wave 1 sends units that flank you from the sides.
-Barricades, which you can buy at the Alternate Medicine store, is very usefull if you are leaving the defenses for awhile. Attack units will use time destroying these Barricades before they advance against the Gate of Deepholm

Terrain Description:
Since terrain was my minus in Azeroth Defenders: Defense of Stormwind, I have used a few more hours on the terrain.

The tileset is Sunken Ruins because Deepholm is located under the Maelstrom over the South Seas. So the Echo Isles is not far from it, which made it a natural choice to put the other entrance to Deepholm on an isle in the Echo Isle group. The isles in the Echo Isle group is placed under equator in the middle of the sea, so it got a lot of tropical environment, with palms and overgrown terrain.

Also, if you see under Battlefield map, you can see orange paths lead to total of four bases, for example if only player 1 is playing; when the bases on the left get destroyed, the southern middle orange paths get activated, after those southern bases is destroyed, the epic bossfight against Deathwing the Destroyer starts!

The terrain will most likely get a new doodad here and there for every update here on HiveWorkshop, so tell me if I should fix anything to make it look better. Please be honest!

Units Description:
There are two forces here, The Earthern Ring and Deathwing Forces.

Depends of what models I find and their filesize etc ;P

-Deathwing the Destroyer - The corrupted Earth Warder wants to destroy the World Pillar and Azeroth with it, so the Old Gods can be free. This bossfight requires a lot of movement, because every 15th second flames spawns at the position of Deathwing, burning every enemy close the the fires, drag Deathwing a few yards away to avoid being damaged. Deathwing also spawns 1 Magma Elemental at the location of every Earthern Ring Hero every minute, they follow the Hero slowly so you can avoid being burned. Deathwing will shoot out a fiery missile at a random attacking unit, the missile will circle around the target unit, forcing friendlies of the target unit to spread out, avoiding the missile. The last spell is the most dangerous; "Molten Rage", this spell will damage every unit around deathwing for 500 every second, the area this spell works in is small so you can move out of it fast.
Deathwing also lifts off and start flying to another location on the map, every 2min.

The Earthern Ring players with Defensive Headquarter, will have the chance to choose between 4 different tower types, each with further upgrades. Fire Towers deals low splashing damage. Lightning Towers deals frequent, medium single-target damage from a long distance. Tower of Auras has auras that enhance every friendly units fighting skills. Mage Towers got autocast abilities which enhance friendly units or reduce enemies' fighting skills.

-Basic Fire Tower. Can be upgraded to Advanced Fire Tower, and further upgraded to Tower of Burning Steppes or Tower of the Phoenix.
-Basic Lightning Tower. Can be upgraded to Advanced Lightning Tower, and further upgraded to Tower of Crushing Thunder or Tower of Piercing Thunder.
-Tower of Auras. Can be upgraded to either Tower of Devotion, Tower of Speed, Tower of Thorns or Tower of Energy.
-Mage Tower. Can be upgraded to either Tower of Bloodlust, Tower of Horror, Tower of Slow or Tower of Restoration.

Modes and Commands:
Deathwing's units will increase % of their base HP every minute based on the difficulty set. In addition, the difference between -easy and -veryhard is huge. A few things is that -veryhard reduces the Gate of Deepholm's HP heavily, gives you only 1 gold every 2 seconds, gives you lesser time in timers like "Guardian's Awakening" and "Wrath of Deathwing", increases HP every minute heavily compared to -easy.
Gold income: Players will get gold in the same way like DoS, gold every 2 seconds and gold from bounties. Gold income depends on mode set and the amount of players on the other side.

Use your gold: The Earthen Ring players can use their gold to buy items and units from Offensive HQ or towers from Defensive HQ.

Deathwing players can use their gold to buy units they can controll from Twilight Summoner or Naga Spawn, build towers with their shade Hand of Deathwing, or buy units that automaticly attacks the Gate of Deepholm from the Deathwing's Summoner. Units bought from Deathwing's summoner is cheaper than the ones bought from Twilight Summoner and Naga Spawn.
-si | Shared Income. This command shares all your gold income by 15% for each allied player you have
-roll | Roll. The roll command can be typed by all players. It allows for rolling on items or just for fun!
-pizza | Pizza Timer. Type this command to start a timer that will alert you in 15 minutes.
-elit | Extended Life Increasing Timer. Type -elit to increase Deathwing's units HP every 1min and 30th sec instead of every 1min.
-srs | Switch Revive System. Only available when there's more than one Earthen Ring player. Removes the Tombstone revive system and activates standard ressing system. Do not turn on standard ressing system while a Hero is under a tombstone, this will make it impossible to revive the Hero, if this happens, change back to Tombstone ressing system by typing -srs again.

Author's notes: I have moved on to music production and studying micro- and nanotechnology, so I will not update this map every often. Maybe I get an urge to sit down with the editor in a few months and make a lot of changes. But I think the game is very entertaining when playing with friends, so I will put this on pause a little.
Ideas that most likely will come in future updates:
-DeathwingPlayersOnly mode, summon warriors from the Twilight and nagas from the depths to destroy the Gate of Deepholm. Cenarius has been resurrected and will defend Azeroth's last defense with his life.

Comment: Rating changed to 4/5 due to update.


Gameplay-wise it's not that special, you just have to defend your base or attack the enemy by upgrading your tower to either an offensive one which will let you train units or to a defensive one which will let you build 5 towers. There are almot no custom spells whatsoever, I played the Blood Mage guy, he had 2 normal abilities, stat points and only his ulti was a custom spell and a liftoff spell. If all of them were custom ones, it would have been much more fun. The spells' hotkeys are bound to QWER, which is always nice.
The unit spawns also start too soon, maybe give the players a little bit more time to buy their items, check out their spells and also upgrade their towers.
The Deathwing sequence is also kinda neat, but more of these kind of events would have been nice.


The environment looks amazing, the terrain definitely isn't flat, there are rivers flowing throughout the whole map, a lot of doodads and very natural and realistic looking. The custom models, skins and icons are also excellent choices and of good quality.


The in-game text is colorized, but how about colorizing the map's title as well, also add tips which are shown on the screen.
'Liftoff' can throw units into the gate.
Show a game message telling the player to upgrade his tower if he's new to the game.
Select one of the taverns for the player in the beginning.


While visually, it looks very nice, the gameplay still lacks more events and the heroes lack more custom spells. The map also needs some polishing.

Rating: 3/5

Thank you for the review! I will start straight away to raise that rating ;)

All the heroes on Earthen Ring's side have a total of 72 abilities they can learn, where currently 42 of them is custom abilities. Last saturday I did a check of all the spells and noticed that around 9 of them had wierd errors, like they didnt give bounty, instantly killed elite units, tossed the caster off the border of the map or showed errors after a long time ingame. 3 abilities were fixed and the rest was deleted :(
My goal was to have atleast 3 custom abilities and 1 ability that affected in percentage (so its good the whole game), so I will add some new custom spells to the map, especially to Pyromaster, since he had 4 custom abilities in the early days of the map.

I have a lot of ideas for more events, but after a game where I triggered Iso'rath, Guardian of Vedok, Spongebob and Deathwing flying over the Iso'rath fight, I felt I it was enough and by adding more it would be too much. But I can add more if people want more interruptions, decrease the timer Spongebob and Guardian of Vedok spawns or something like that.

Didnt the unit that was Liftoffed get teleported back in front of the gate? There should be an antistuck region behind the gate.

Wait "The Deathwing sequence is also kinda neat", you mean when Deathwing comes flying into your base or the Deathwing boss fight? You played the whole game right? Destroyed all the three bases and defeated Deathwing?

Haven't played yet but 5/5 for the terrain first :p

--------------- After 10 minutes play with cheating -----------------
You should need a new loading screen :p
Hard to play alone (of course :p)
I used cheat code | iseedeadpeople | for an overview of the terrain and my screen stopped for a while =))

-------------------- After 15 minutes full team 1 ----------------------
Defeated =))

-------------- After Reading Guide then Play again -----------------
Hero Defense + Tower Defense + (maybe)RPG + ... = interesting !

Please don't laugh at me :D

You should have Ysera and Alexstrasza come in and kick Dethwings @$$ also you should have N'Zath in this battle since N'Zath, Yogg-Saron and C'Thun is behind all the evil in the world ALL THE EVIL. And that means including Dethwing since N'Zath hand out Dethwings check.

And I dont think Alexstrasza would sit by and watch as all she've thought to preserve and since Ysera has declared that she'd do anything to stop this ''nightmare'' as she calls it so if you follow common sence she would come with to and then our beloved Kalecgos would come since he wants to eridicate Dethwing and the old gods. And remember that Alexstrasza and Ysera each are as powerfull as Dethwing because many people forget it since Alexstrasza was deafeted at Twilight Higlands by Deathwing because of that Deathwing was buffed up by N'Zath.

But I'm not here only to complain it's a good map and I really love the models :)

I think there should be a bit more instructions for new players. When my friends and I hopped into the game, we had no idea what we were doing. It took 2 remakes before realizing there were towers below the shops, because honestly we really didn't have enough time to read through the entire game info before the game started.

Other than that this map is very fun. My friends and I enjoy it quite much. Only complaint is being on DeathWing Side makes me wish we could have some sort of epic event or ability that we can control but that's all a matter of opinion.

I've also seen you're planning a DeathWing Player Only mode, which I cannot wait to try out.

hm, I actually thought of that :p But I was sure I had seen Lady Vashj the short time I played Cataclysm, and then thought she had survived The Burning Crusade and joined the naga in Vashj'ir. I might change that name in 1.2, thank you :p

Nothing like that. No countdown, no nothin'. Like now, the player selection panel isn't even opening up! I have TFT, so there shouldn't be a problem. Maybe it's a glitch? :eekani:

Ladies and gentlemen, I have done what seemed was currently impossible, and that is beat the game on your own and in the Earthen Ring side.

I finally cracked the code on how you can do this on your own as a member of the Ring and beat the game. Basically, it relies a lot on stall tactics but played right, you'll tear through enemy defenses on your own. I used Witch Doctor for this one. Who knows when I'll try other Heroes.

If anyone asks, I'll give them the replay of my game so they can learn from it (I took nearly three hours to clear this. lol).

Screenies of my victory:

Deathwing's Grave (plus final items):

(Granted, I killed him on an area I didn't wipe clean).

My Towers:

(Four Lightning Towers that stun, two Fire that has Burning Oil, all upgraded to max damage)

My Gnome:


I originally had Demolisher before the assault on Deathwing. I switched it for a third Needler for good measure. Made a fourth, just in case. XD

lol, so cool that you put so much effort into my map :p I should make a ranking in the main thread, with Combat Points earned and time spent, "CP per minute" to encourage people to challenge the game like you did :p You probably keep the Rank 1 for a long time

indeed he would, most games like these you need help to complete..and he did it without cheating, something which i only do when about to get WHIPPED..
also last i tried this map all i saw was a mass of units...is that gone now??oh btw, i couldn't really pick my hero to be specific...
People on Deathwing's team are still able to block off buildings with invulnerable towers by going all the way around it from cliff to cliff.

Also, the Eye of Pain buildings are pretty overpowered. Keep in mind that attacking every ~4 seconds with 500 damage, with the first attack being instant, means that in ~4 seconds, 10 eyes of pain can dish out 10,000 damage. It is very easy for the spawn area to be covered with them, killing everyone before they can even move. The Eye of Pain should have its pathing (but not collision) size increased to that of a town hall, so that less of them can be placed in the same area.

It should also either have its damage decreased to 300, or have its price increased to 200.

It should be incapable of being built within, say, 1000 range of the gate.

There should also be another type of tower; one that actually has a normal damage and attack rate. Say, 50 damage, attacking once every second.

The food limit for deathwing's team should be increased to 30. There is really no point in spending gold on units that are going to die anyway when you can't make enough of them to do anything at all.

These two issues made my first run of the game very unenjoyable, but it did look like a good map.
