The campaign has three missions where you can choose to play from four difficulty settings and also features custom monsters, scripted events, music and spells. As an added bonus, the stand-alone version of Chapter 3 supports a two-player mode.

Stand-Alone Map Files
Installation

Instead of putting the file into Campaigns folder, please put it to the Maps folder.

Playing

Start the game using Custom Game. For multiplayer, use Battle.net or LAN.

Selecting the Right Difficulty
Easy:
If you have been long time away from Warcraft III and you have not honed your skills to play the game lately, please choose the Easy difficulty.

Normal: If you know how the game functions, you are able to use hero abilities effectively, train a good mix of units, and create a good army, but you do not consider yourself as a super-good player, we recommend playing on the Normal difficulty.

Hard: If you are actually pretty good at the game, you can use hero and unit abilities to the maximum effect, you are able to micro units well, you know how to build an extremely effective army, and you know well what different abilities, items, and upgrades do, we recommend that you play on the Hard difficulty.

Very Hard: Well, you can pick this if Hard feels too easy for you.

Bob27: An excellent campaign, with a great story, gameplay and terrain. This would have to still be one of my favorite Warcraft III Campaigns. Approved.

    The runes at the Emerald Gates read translated as follows: "Speak the name of an Old God [to] enter." So, you actually have to type one of the names of the Old Gods, which are found in the room that has their statues.

    You must not type the translation of the runes that are in front of the gate, but the name of an Old God in dark speech. What did you exactly type?

    Nice. This is only to repair 1.31 disaster ? Or this means that chapter 4 is moving forward.

    We are concentrating now fully on Gnoll Campaign chapter 2. And waiting for Warcraft 3: Reforged, of course.

    Finished replaying this glorious campaign and oh boi... new voice acting for every character? Amazing!:grin:

    Listening to each cutscene felt like watching a movie at a cinema, i can tell the voice actors had a blast doing the voice acting, and i can't belive they even did new dialogues for when you click multiple times on characters.. Just perfect! I loved every one of them( especially the jokes):xxd:.

    Playing on very hard was sure a challenge but with such splendid new voice acting for every cutscene i got triple more motivated to do my best in achieving victory!

    My only critisism would be that some of the voices are a bit too quiet/silent compared to the other ones like Erogdin Earthstorm's and Philiastrasza's voice lines, and i had to raise up the volume more especially when they were talking, but other than that everything was Perfect!

    I am always in shock of the level of ingeniosity and skill of this Campaign, i didn't think you guys could make this better, but you did! I can't wait for the new updates on this story and the Gnoll story as well, Keep up the awesome work Tommi Gustafsson and your team!
    For Khaz Modan! :peasant-cheers-back:

    This was a great campaign! Although there are only 3 maps, those are very well detailed and very long (it took me about 3 hours each for the latter two missions, and about 1:30 for the first mission). The story is ok, the custom models are pretty awesome, the gameplay is a lot of fun, quite challenging at times (I played on normal) and just the general idea of a dwarven faction (and MINI-SPOILER gnoll faction, which expanded on in the sequel END SPOILER). Just a truly awesome experience through and through (although certain moments were a little annoying, like the emerald gate (also, I got the dwarf riddle first try (I was just trying to be funny, but my answer was indeed the correct one xD))).
