    Well, I found that today, and asked some people, they mostly did not about that, some however, found of that very recently, so I have to remind you that there is actually Hydralisk which you can access and play with in regular WC3 mission.
    According to WOWwiki

    ,,The Hydralisk is a hidden creature in Chapter 2 of the Night Elf Campaign, Daughters of the Moon. Tyrande Whisperwind had just been attacked by Archimonde when she used Shadowmeld to hide herself. She escaped the Doom Guards to reach safety. Along the way, she found the in-game secret of a Hydralisk hidden in the upper right corner of the map behind a layer of trees. The Hydralisk aided Tyrande in fighting past the Undead forces blocking her way. "

    So, I tested out, and indeed still there is one Hydralisk there, I took screenshot
    [​IMG]

    You got ballistas there, just clean trees with t-hem, move forwart it, and you will get access to it. Hydralisk is pretty strong, damage and 700 hit points. Only, he has 0 armor, so it doesnot reduce damage. But still it is quite powerful.

    Anyway, this is interesting, Hydralisk as secret unit in Night Elf mission, to fight at their side.
    Why do you think that Blizzard put it into War craft (when it belongs to star craft) especially in that way at Night Elf side?

    I am pretty sure that hydralisks/Zerg would be at Undeads/Demons side.
    One of possible explanations can be that when Demons with Undeads invaded Night elves, somehow Hydralisks got throwed out via demonic portals in wood, and got stuck there in trees. So it fights for whoever frees it. I do not know. But thats in case if they are in Outland (borrowed straight from Star Craft).

    Zergs and Hydralisks may be seen when player beat missions on hardest level in some cinematics.

    I found out about it recently through wowpedia. Pity it's in that mission though, it is sort of easy, an hydralisk would come in much more useful in the awakening of the druids of the talon, Illidan's mission or the final map of the campaign.

    well... I have nothing to do with startcraft creature. and, by the way there is another secret in this mission.

    Hidden Secret that you may wish to discover yourself
    You can use the ballista to pass the Undead camp without a fight. Go through the woods to the very right of the map and reach the night elf camp safely, without a spill of any blood!!

    Really interesting thing. Well, although i have been playing Wc3 for more than 2008, i have never noticed this. I am going to play this chapter to see this hydralisk.
    I thought that Bllizzard might have made a mistake.

    I have already found it. :D Another thing is that maybe Blizzard wanted to make a mission for the hydralisk but then somehow forgot it.

    Its just to cheesy when you know that the hydralisk belongs to the SC1 AND SC2 world not the WC3 world.

    Indeed is a nice easter egg, and I agree with Rui, since the Hydralisk would've been much more useful in other chapters.

    I actually forgot about that one *laughs*.
    A usual easter egg. Obviously very funny when i first found it. Though.. i would have fit better as an undead helper... not allied with night elves.

    An intresting thing about warcraft:

    When you have a hero whos healing near the fountain,he heals alot faster if you have selected him and started tapping 1 on the keyboard.Most noticable in dota.Its a strange little glitch...
