Legacy of Lordaeron
v 2.7

A Forsaken Campaign


Legacy of Lordaeron is a custom singleplayer RPG campaign inspired by the Founding of Durotar campaign and World of Warcraft. The gameplay is basically an adventuring and questing style, levelling and unraveling the story. The object of this campaign is to complete quests while developing your heroes' abilities just like in the Founding of Durotar.

Important : Due to the new features implied in this campaign, this campaign will no longer work on any earlier versions of the game below patch 1.29.2. You can download the latest patch of Warcraft 3 via Battle.net or via the Warcraft 3 Launcher. (Requires CD-Keys)
You can, however, download an old version of the campaign which is compatible with patch 1.27a here. (This version will not receive anymore updates)


Note : The Transition among the campaign maps will not work if the filename of this campaign is too long.

FAQ

- Q : Why do I get a black screen when I try to play this campaign?
- A: That's because you don't have the latest patch of Warcraft 3 installed. You need to update your Warcraft 3 version in order to play this campaign. (Currently it works only on patch above 1.29.2)
- Q: Why do I get back to the menu screen whenever I return from a sub-map?
- A: As I said above. You need to update your Warcraft 3 version to the latest patch.
- Q: If I rename the filename of this campaign, will it cause any bug?
- A: Yes, it will. The campaign transition will not work if the filename of this campaign is too long.
- Q : Why do I get back to the beginning of this campaign when I reload?
- A : It is possible that sometimes the transition will fail and you will get back to the beginning of this campaign, this occur even in Rexxar's campaign, my advice is to always backup your progress or make sure to save regularly to prevent losing your progress.

Feel free to report any bugs, tips or suggestions!

As the bugs I found have been fixed, and I trust that you will fix any future ones after your best ability, this campaign is now approved. I don't usually replay things I've moderated, but for this one, I'll look forward to future updates! Good luck!

This is promising! Downloading it now.

I love the description! The greyscale looks really cool, with only a few texts breaking the colour code, which makes them look more important.
The lines above and under each piece of text gives it wonderful structure aswell. The snippets of texts themselves aren't too long, and well-written.
Also wonderful choice of (almost) colourcoded icons!

Some minor things about the description:
-You say the map has six submaps, yet later you list only five.
-Magistrat Merphist has blue text instead of grey.
-A space should be placed between Change and Log
-"Automatic Respawn for Heroes." and "Auto-Respawn for Mobs." doesn't sound really impressive, but as I haven't played it yet, I may be wrong. However, I'm guessing this part is to hook a player, and then having it short is not a bad thing.
-I would also suggest, that in the story piece, you cut off the text with a new row, so that there isn't a super long row in the middle of medium sized ones. THis could be done after the punctuation in the first text just under the title aswell.

Your description is already good enough, those are just the things I would change. :)

Sylvanas Windrunner and her Forsaken minions reclaimed vengeance and since that day the Scourge was no longer a threat to them.
Wrong. The scourge exist and is still a threat, that's why there must always be a Lich King (Jailor of the Damned).

With the Lich King dead.
Arthas is dead, the Lich King is not.

The Forsaken people were up to start a new future for their race, After they reclaimed the Capital City of Lordaeron as the Undercity, they engaged so many forces and troops to develope their army, Sylvanas has also made an alliance with the Horde,
This happened before the Arthas' downfall.

However, The Alliance on the other hand is still a threat to the Forsaken, they still claiming that Lordearon belond to the
Human Race, leaving the Forsaken no choice but to react...
Also wrong. The Worgen and some humans who still live in Silverpine Forest tries to retake the Forsaken's lands, the alliance as a whole does not.

Don't worry about it, I will change that ability in the next update.

I don't know, mate! I played all the six maps and everything works properly for me--
BTW, have you tried renaming the .w3n file?

Edit : I just replaced the two abilities of Fellson (Healing Spray and Chemical Rage) with (Elixir of Death and Necrotic Blast) they will be more suitable with the campaign progress :)

A cool campaign inspired by the Rexxar extension to the frozen throne.
I played this for quite a while, and intended to play more, but I got stuck, and found a little too many flaws, and wanted to finish it when the campaign in itself is finished.

The story line is slightly altered, with quests in almsot the same order as the first Rexxar mission.
Not very creative in this fashion, but still engaging and fun to play.

The terrain is looking good! You have managed to create a cool atmosphere with very few imported doodads. Only a few minor flaws:
-The throne room where sylvanas is felt a little empty.
-Some hills (where there were dragons for exampl) was really tall, and looks kinda silly.

While being a little bit of a copycat, it is still fun to play, but there are also a lot of things to improve, to make it as good as the Rexxar campaign.
-I missed powerful creeps. Not too long into the game, I defeated all creeps in the overmap without problems.
-Hero abilities are underwhelming. Some more than others: for example the main heroes ultimate is really bad. While looking really good, I earn more from basic attacking the enemies than using it. His summons quickly become too weak in proportion for the mana cost, and are not very useful later in the game. His Soul burn is ok. The only really good hero is the Alchemist in my opinion. He feels useful as he can increase his own attackspeed for a cost, reduce armor, and have a really powerful summon. His healing spray ability doesn't work I think. I would like to see more custom abilities, and more realtive and useful ones!
-All the heroes (that I unlocked) had intelligence as their main attribute, which is irritating in the long run. They are all also ranged, though is not as big of a problem.

I'm not sure if this was a bug or not, but I couldn't find the blackthorn bandits anywhere, not even in the submap. There was some unexplored areas in the submap though, but nowhere I could go.
The same thing happened later in a main quest when you were supposed to find something in the silverpine forest. I used "Iseedeadpeople" here to see if I missed something, but there was no way to get to the human encampments and whatnot. I'm pretty sure this is not working as intended.

I will approve this as soon as the last bug I mentioned have been fixed, so that the main quest can be played all the way.
This absolutely have great potential, but it is not perfect yet.

Awaiting Update.

I will work more on the terrain during the next updates.

The difficulty level will be fixed, also those powerful creeps will be reduced.

I take all that under consideration, as a matter of fact, for the next update, I will give the player the opportunity to choose his own character between 6 class instead of the Death Mage only, including different spells, etc...
Also Fellson's Healing Spray ability has been replaced by Elixir of Death the last time I updated this thread ^^

Yeah it was a silly bug, I forgot to trigger the event, but no worry I'll fix this. btw the path to get there is passing a block of tree.

Are you referring to the quest ''Missing Ingredients'' where you were suppose to collect the plantes? If so I already made a visibilty on where you can find them, look at the minimap.
As for the human camp that's another quest that you will be given later (Odd Vision Quest) and yes the way to get there is blocked by a block of Trees, to get there you must take that mission first ^^

Anyway, I will fix all those bugs in the next update.

It was during the "Odd Vision" quest. I think the trees after the bridge would fall when you got the quest, but they didn't.

Good map, waiting for the sequel, still I got a couple of issues:

1) Some of the text is in other language I beleive it is french, specially the Warlock spells, and other units spells as well.

2) What troubled me the most was the end, I loved the Valkyr hero but you can only go to the island where the 2 last orc camps are with her so your main 3 heroes can do nothing just sit around while you kill it with her, dn't get me wrong it was great to fight with her, after I gave best items to her she became quite powerfull, and using the drake summoning staff, and the crown of deathlord it was easy to dispose of the orc units at both bases, but killing the buildings was a huge pain, it took sooo long, but the worse came after, after you destroy the last base you get a nice cinematic of the Valkyr killing the orcs at the island and all your heroes are taken there and you lose control of the Valkyr hero (the only flyer) so I lost all the best items on her and I got stuf there with the other 3 heroes, except that I was smart and kept the blink dadger with wich I could leave the island, but still having to reload so before I kill the base I drop all her items was a pain.

My guess is that you expected we would buy a zeplin from the goblin merchant, but we never get any lumber so it is not possible, witch is also a problem in an earlier part of the game, where there is another goblin merchant (in a cave where you have to capture a necromancer I guess) to buy a zeplin to get to other place, but again no lumber.

Still the issue with the Valkyr was near the end of the campaign so if I had kept playing I would be pissed but not for long, but that is a problem for people who would want to leave the optional quests for the end or just explore your big fun map!

Oh and one more thing in the cave where you play with Faranell there is what I beleive is a bonus boss, a woman that give a red item (forgot the name) but I never found out how to break the barrier to get to her, so I used the blink knife again to kill her, dont know if it is a bug or I just didnt find the secret. And in this same cave there are 2 items that are a keg of explosives one I used to open the path to the woman the other I never found out how to use, I guess it is for the ice wall in the path but it never tirggered so I took the long way around it!

I am working on fixing those dialogue mistakes ;)

Yes, I forgot about making a drop of the items carried by Agatha after the cinematic ends, but I'll fix that in the next update. and yes it is supposed to use the zeppllin to go or get back from the island...

You're right, I forgot about the lumber thing aswell :p but no problem I'll fix it.

Good point there, the way to get to the woman was passing that force wall which is supposed to die after you killed the water elementary but it doesn't, and as for the explosive barrel I made two which has the same purpose (break the block path of rocks), as for the ice wall it should collapse once you killed the wraith but same thing aswell, so I will fix all that as promised.

Anyway, Thank you for reporting all those bugs, you helped me a lot :)

Great man, your map is really cool, the best is the imersion it has, love to see undead fight undead, and I would love if you did a Campaign like this for the Scarlet Crusade, also I didnt get what was the point of that last necromancer in the Scarlet base, but whatever I'm happy everytime they show up.

A small tip on the keg of explosives item: giving 2 of them makes people confused thinking the other one is for something else (I pretty much run with it at all invulnerable stuff at that cave) making just one as an item that can not be killed would be good, as it looks like a keg people can just atack it.

Again great work love your map.

Did i miss tome of retraining or is there even that? If not have you thought of adding it?
Well, the Tome of Retraining has been removed from Merchants, I didn't thought he might be useful so I just removed it.

I'm going crazy
I don't know what's wrong the game keeps crashing
I have the latest patch and changed the file name like you said and redownloaded it a lot of times but still the same thing!!!
Odd... I never encountred such problems. I'm suspecting this is due to the save/load that perform this campaign. the problem might be on how your warcraft 3 store the data. I don't know though...

An overrelaxing campaign with an absolute filler story. Also, a huge chore.

chap1:
-dialogue a bit slower
-Thealen is a warlock, I guess since he can summon Felbeasts; I also guess Sylvanas is OK with that
-the guy above's attack fx looks more like a spell effect
-so, why aren't these undead controlled by Sylvanas and/or other of her allies if the Lich King is dead?
-I suggest custom items for shops; use your imagination
-a gate can be attacked (see pic below)
-from where do they have a Soul Gem? Also, that quest started without going to Sylvanas first
-play music through its proper channel not the sound one
-Kasgaroth's region is prefectly visible as opposed to the other quest regions that have fog of war
-Elixir of Death's description mentions level 4 as level 3
-Fellson has less Agility than Thealen but attacks fast while the latter's attack speed is average; Fellson also deals a bit more damage
-would be nice if the hero's Fel creatures would look a bit different than the ones belonging to the enemy
-most spells are just mildly edited Warcraft III abilities (new icons and fx, somewhat different descriptions etc.)
-would be nice to mark the acolyte merchant on the map too, in case you forget about him
-I guess the creatures from the Mercenary Camp in the south can leave the main map as there's no indication whether they can or not? There's a space between the Gnoll Overseer and the troll icons
-I suggest different colours for optional quest pings
-spells from other friendly/summoned units on QWERTY?
-bad pathing at a bridge in the east (see screenshot)
-upon loading the game, the wizards in the north belonging to the optional quest to get the archmage hero, are not visible anymore; the black dragons and the murloc zones are
-not a fan of linearity: trees that are removed to clear paths only on specific events
-Aldrith's level 1 Shadow Aura says 0% not 10% like in the spell learn description
-three heroes with intelligence as the main attribute... I don't know...
-items would be nice to be attribute based so there would be some customization and/or replayability
-the Fel Beasts have 0 armour at all levels
-the Zeppelin can trespass zones that have ground pathing blockers; this way, some places can be reached by the heroes before they should and unpopulated places might be seen before they come to have inhabitants
-the tents near the Scarlet Crusade cathedral are considered enemy while the ones in their camp to the west where their boats are are neutral
-the cathedral can be entered using a zeppelin to get the heroes there before any quest about it is given
-how much does the Banshee Necklace reduce magic damage? More than the Runed Braces that reduce it by 33%? Write it in the item's description
-tomb of chill can be accessed before any quest is given carrying the heroes by zeppelin to the portal; because of that the Alchemist hero doesn't appear but talks in the cinematic scene
-because I've been to the cathedral and killed the crusade warriors in the main map where the necromancer arrives by boat, before receiving the quest, going to that place after the quest is given will make it not able to be completed; there is nobody there anymore, just the boat that turned to neutral passive

-I suggest dialogue boxes wit yes/no for level transition
-funny thing is, that after getting to Sylvanas and the Alchemist, going into the portal (without having any quest about it) will make the Alchemist appear
-why not make keys like other items (variables) that don't need to occupy an inventory slot?

evil presence:
-some other model and name for the huts where Ogres are else all of it makes it look like Ogres invade Gnoll territories
-I can foresee returning to this map for another quest as not all of it was discovered; again, trees will be removed; a lame kind of progression
-the cliffs serving as the map's borders have no doodads on them
-you can destroy the Alliance before getting to the apothecary, using the zeppelin
-the invaders just stand at the undead base gates after some of them die in the base (you can see this if you use the zeppelin to drop your heroes right in the undead base)

ashes of Tirisfal:

-for some reason, the enemy units on this map don't start with full mana
-Kobolds can be attacked from behind a grated wall; so can undead over the rocks where the fire is (see pics)
-weird place for dogs to wander with all the undead around
-two Fountain of Healths quite near to each other
-always was funny that Skeletal Mages didn't have any spells and mana
-what's the point of destroying buildings that either don't give anything or don't deal any damage? What about have them regularly spawn creatures or something when the heroes are near until the building is destroyed?
-Zeppelins can be bought here with only gold; the one in the main map requires lumber too; got lumber from a building in the thieves camp (main map)
-odd that the archmage didn't appear in the circle between the two circles of power and instead appeared somewhere to the near south of the circle in the middle
-Necklace of Spell Immunity? That's kind of too powerful

cathedral level:

-the generators aren't protected enough
-shouldn't the moon key open the gate? It says that a ghost key is required; probably, the necromancer had it... Wait! For some reason after I completed the portal quest and got back here it worked with the MOON key, so it's not a GHOST key
-so.. the necromancer wasn't supposed to be in the camp where he (that one had a horse) came with a boat?
-well, either the necromancer died or something because he was not present in the end level cinematic scene (the one where he says something about something, IDK, can't follow this story plus quick transmissions)

portal level:
-Sphere of Darkness' Life Drain does not work
-Faranell cannot open the gates with the moon key

blackrock level:
-the orcs are confused. Either they are supposed to defend themselves or warn the base? Both is kind of improbable
-the Blackrock clan never had Darkspear Trolls; better said, there are no Darkspear Trolls in the Eastern Kingdoms
-Agatha cannot attack air units; at least, she can after taking an orb
-level 8 is the maximum level?
-it would be nice to know the factor of mana regeneration for items that give it either as Brilliance Aura or only to the carrier; for instance which of these give better mana regeneration: Ring of the Archmagi or Staff of Musris?
-"Espirit de drake blew" written on the summoned Blue Dragon's timed life bar
-really, destroying all orc buildings is time consuming and boring
-gold kind of becomes useless; the heroes are already too powerful so tomes are not ideal (I don't know if their stock cooldown is big or not; haven't bought any)
-also, basically all my heroes can have Frostguard and Searing Blade which, well, isn't very interesting even though more than useful
-wow... "cool", one more Frostguard, in the ice box
-melee ground units can attack Agatha...
-Void Walker's timed bar says Water Elemental and Fel Beast's says Feral Spirit
-Agatha's soundset is annoying
-this level's exit doesn't have the magic barrier effect

It's not well calibrated. After level 3 it gets easy at the point that Elixir of Death is not useful anymore on allied/friendly units.
It does not match the quality of the Frozen Throne's Orc Campaign as the gameplay is mostly repetitive.
3.25/5.

EDIT: changed to 3.5/5 due to constant updating.

I've just finished the campaign and it's great! The difficulty is ok, but the grammar is just awful! Also, the dialogues are a bit too fast. Warseeker, please, work on improving it. Can't wait for more updates. Keep it up! :)

I am working on that dialogue nowadays.
-Thealen is a warlock, I guess since he can summon Felbeasts; I also guess Sylvanas is OK with that
-the guy above's attack fx looks more like a spell effect
For now I made only Death Mage but in the future I will add more classes to choose.
-so, why aren't these undead controlled by Sylvanas and/or other of her allies if the Lich King is dead?
Well, not all of the undead were controlled by Sylvanas.
-from where do they have a Soul Gem? Also, that quest started without going to Sylvanas first
Not sure, but if I remember correct the gate is closed till you take Sylvanas' quest but I'm checking it. (Unless you used a zeppelin to get there)
-I guess the creatures from the Mercenary Camp in the south can leave the main map as there's no indication whether they can or not? There's a space between the Gnoll Overseer and the troll icons
You mean that mercenary units can leave the main map too? Odd, I probably missed something in the Transition.
-the Zeppelin can trespass zones that have ground pathing blockers; this way, some places can be reached by the heroes before they should and unpopulated places might be seen before they come to have inhabitants
Yeah, I forgot about the observatory thing, but in the next update, I'll remove all resources from the observatory.
-you can destroy the Alliance before getting to the apothecary, using the zeppelin
Same thing ^^
-shouldn't the moon key open the gate? It says that a ghost key is required; probably, the necromancer had it... Wait! For some reason after I completed the portal quest and got back here it worked with the MOON key, so it's not a GHOST key
I misspelled the name of the key.
-so.. the necromancer wasn't supposed to be in the camp where he (that one had a horse) came with a boat?
Yeah.
-also, basically all my heroes can have Frostguard and Searing Blade which, well, isn't very interesting even though more than useful
-wow... "cool", one more Frostguard, in the ice box
-melee ground units can attack Agatha...
-Void Walker's timed bar says Water Elemental and Fel Beast's says Feral Spirit
-Agatha's soundset is annoying
Yeah you're right, I know, I just placed these items randomly for the first time but all that will be changed.
portal level:
-Sphere of Darkness' Life Drain does not work
-Faranell cannot open the gates with the moon key
I'll fix that.
-level 8 is the maximum level?
Yes.

@deepstrasz First of all, I would like to thank you for this wonderful overview, it helps me a lot, I added all what you said to my list, I'll do my best to fix all those bugs and work more on the campaign :)
@Lazarator I know right, but because english isn't my native language, I had these kind of problems but I'll try to make it better.

I'm stuck... In the mission where you have to kill the Necromancer, the Iron Gate has to be unlocked by a Ghost Key. However, all that I can get is a Moon Key. Am I missing something or am I just being stupid?

This is a great campaign, better even than Rexxar's, yes there are some errors, and it should have voice acting, and it's just act 1, this is still a great map.

Question though, how am I supposed to get to the Blackthorn Bandits, I can't get to them because of the trees.

Yes it is a Moon Key that you need to open that gate, that key is given to you by the jailer. (I think I may have confused the name of the key but it's fixed now :p)

Trees aren't falling after you take the Blackthorn Bandits quest? Btw, have you finished Sharlindra's quest (Ghostmage) before entering that map again?
If yes, then try to exit and re-enter the map once again. maybe that can help.

One of the quite interesting campaigns I've played. However, I'm afraid there seems to be some problems, such as tree blocks not being removed. Even though I finished one of the main quests, 'missing ingredients', it was still not regarded that I haven't returned to Faranell, when I entered submaps(and the quest was regarded to have been finished when I was in the main map). Therefore, the tree blocks in the submap 'Ashes of Tirisfal' were not removed, making it impossible to finish optional quest 'Blackthorn bandits.' Moreover, after starting the main quest 'Master of Shadows', it was still regarded that I haven't finished the former main quest, 'Unexpected visit' in submaps. I don't know why some maps regard some quests which are already done not to have been finished, but I think these errors interacted with each other and made blocks not removed, making impossible to proceed the story.

I am aware of the Blackthorn Bandits quest, the only way to make the tree falls is completing all 4 requirement of "Aiding the Forsakens" Quest, sorry about that but I'll fix it soon.

I suppose you currently play the first version 1.0, right? If yes, the block tree won't fall due to a bug but it has been fixed now, simply re-download the campaign again.

Changes for Version 1.3b :

- Blackthorn Bandits quest is now accessible without requirement of finishing "Aiding the Forsakens" Main Quest.
- The AI has been fixed in the fifth Map.
- Spell description fixed aswell.

P.S : Ghostmage Quest won't fullfil if you access Map 6 without taking Sharlindra's Quest first.

Well I am a fan of the Forsaken's campaign... and it has been a while since I played a little Warcraft. Hmm... I'm going to give this one a try, perhaps give a comment or two in the next coming days.

So far, all I have to say is, it has an interesting story with new characters, except of course, the undying Sylvannas. Description seems to do its job pretty well, and now I'm excited to play. Something to do over the Christmas weekend haha.

How many Acts are you planning to make? And when you release a new version of this campaign with new Acts, will there be a way to transfer your hero info to the new campaign? If not, I'll probably wait for the full version.

I'll add two acts later, as for the release date I am not so sure, and about the heroes' stuff, I don't know if they will be transfered to the second act or no but either way I'll make the hero start with basic items like Rexxar's campaign (Act II).

I finished doing everything in the cave with the blackstone bandits, but when I try to leave, the page goes back to my "load custom campaign" page. Is there a way to fix this?
