About Dwarf Campaign
GG&K's Dwarf Campaign is a story-driven single player campaign for WarCraft III The Frozen Throne that sends the dwarves of Khaz Modan on a quest to explore the unknown, in hopes of saving their ancestral homeland. 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.

    This campaign was EXCELLENT. It had enough conversation to keep the player involved in the storyline, but not too much to bore a player. The storyline is really well set up and interesting. The Dwarf Campaign becomes challenging at certain points but is doable with careful thought. It also has some puzzle solving elements to it adding to the gameplay. It keeps you involved and interested all the way until the end. Great campaign-5 stars here!

    Hello,

    this map is simply astonishing. It is so great that is even beats the Blizzard campaigns. The storyline is also fascinating and one is sad that it isn't finished.

    Greetings

    Excellent campaign. Better than all but the best works of Blizzard and other elite designers. I love the dialog options, Bliz should have done that. I would have liked to see some more straight RTS but the hybrid dungeon levels are quite fun. This does an excellent job of keeping to Blizzard lore while throwing in some interesting twists. This can almost be considered canon.

    No, you're not going to get rep in return...

    But I agree with the votes. This is indeed a great campaign. Too shame they quit...

    The old guy in the library sells something like anti-buff scroll or potion or something. Just select it and put the area around the girl.

    Sorry if I'm not accurate, it's been half a year or more since I played this.

    There is a much easier way. Just bring your Gnoll Warden to her and use his Purge ability on her.
