Legendary Bosses v.4d

Submitted by ActualGaming
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Official release is here. Enjoy.

Legendary Bosses is a map where your goal is to team up with random players or friends on a quest to slay bosses and acquire fancy loot. The map is for 5 players and has features like save/loading and an item-type limitation that allows you to wear 1 helm, 1 armor etc. Playing with friends with Teamspeak, Ventrilo or Skype is extremely helpful especially for the later and harder bosses as Teamwork is going to determine how far you go. Also, playing with friends is just more fun :) .

History of the map
Legendary Bosses is a map that I made and used to update about 4-5 months ago. It got a lot of positive feedback and was holding on the top 5 maps for a long time which was quite an accomplishment for me since it was my first serious project. Then with the release of Starcraft 2 I thought that WC3 will slowly start to die out so I move on the Galaxy Editor, but found out that I dont have the patience to learn how to work with it properly. Now after so much time I decided to pick the map back up, polished it a little, balanced it and stuff, but still this is a Beta version because there is lots of improvement to be done.


Brief Story
The action takes place inside a dimensional prison where the worst of all evil beings and bloodhungry Gods were kept, but then the 4 Saviours who were keeping everything in balance died and now 5 brave souls must enter the bodies of one of the greatest soldiers who were once defeated in battle.
For information and history of every boss just enter the F9 menu ingame.


Classes
Elementalist - A ranged DPS/Support. Very useful in groups for AoE, heal and Mana Regeneration Aura. Also a beast in PvP if played correctly.
Difficulty: |||
Tauren Clawmaster - A Tank/Support melee. Extremely friendly to healers and spellcasters as he can burn his mana to regen the mana of everyone around him. His mana does not regenerate, but it "goes up" with every hit he deals. Also cannot go past 100.
Difficulty: ||
Light Soldier - A melee Tank/Healer. Useful in any kind of scenario no matter what boss you are doing. He is an amazing party member to have in a beginner's group as he can tank extremely well and keep his allies alive. Currently the easiest tank due to his Defensive Stance.
Difficulty: ||
Deadeye - A ranged DPS. This hero might seem easy, but using his spells to their full potential might training time. His pure damage style is unique for the map as most of the other heroes are used for DPS and Support at the same time. Experiment with different item combinations and spell combinations to find the most effective way to DPS with this beast. Deadeye is one of the deadliest PvP opponents to go against if played with some brainz.
Difficulty: |||
Spell Hunter - A melee DPS/Support. This aswell is one hero that takes time to learn how to play efficiently. Playing him as a pure DPS won't be as helpful for a group as his spells don't allow him to deal high amounts of damage, but playing him as a Support/DPS hybrid will have amazing results.
Difficulty: ||||
Priest - A ranged Healer. If you are not willing to have atleast 3 Support heroes in your group than the Priest is a must-have. Healing is what he is born for, but don't be fooled - his PvP is not just Hits+Heals... If played correctly, he can carry out an entire group without using any Support heroes in the party.
Difficulty: |||
Crypt Knight - A melee DPS. This hero is build for pure DPS and PvP, but he can use his stun or sleep to kite bosses or take care of Adds. He can be used for offtanking on some bosses as he can easily reset aggro with Impale if someone other than the tank is being chased. If using a correct build, this machine is unstoppable in PvP.
Difficulty: |
War Captain - A melee Tank. This is a hero that is perfect for people trying to learn the art of pure tanking. Taunt and War Stomp are an excellent way of taking back aggro when the boss is after someone. Can also be used as a DPS if needed.
Difficulty: ||
Shaman: A ranged Support/DPS/Healer. Probably the hardest hero to play efficiently, the Shaman is the most useful Hero available due to his ability to be needed on any kind of boss fight. Not only does he have 4 Totems that he can manually summon that give buffs or Regenerate mana and health, but his feral spirits can offtank adds or bosses if needed for a few hits, his Shamanic Touch can heal or deal damage depending on the target, and his AoE spell that also slows the target - perfect for kitting around. Mastering the shaman takes some time, but is worth it. Can be amazing in PvP aswell.
Difficulty: |||||

Useful Beginner Information

  • Map must be played with a minimum of 4 players. Max = 5 Players
  • You cannot kill every boss in 1 game - Bosses don't always drop items you need.
  • Investing Marks of Legends for Potions is worth it. Boss Drop > Shop Items
  • Try the first bosses in this order - Leafprince, Snowfall, Sorangar and Trolls.
  • Farm these bosses 3-4 times because after that it gets hard. You will need full gear from them.
  • The best Hero combination for beginners is:
    Clawmaster+Priest+Elementalist+Shaman+Spell Hunter

FAQ
1. How much bosses are available at the moment?
-16.
2. Does the map support Player vs Player combat?
-Yes, there are 3 Battlegrounds where you fight for Medallions of Courage in a Free for All style battle.
3. Is there a save/load system?
-Yes. Thank you TriggerHappy!
4. Is there a system that allows the Hero to wear only 1 helm, 1 armor etc.?
-Yes. you can only wear 1 Armor, 1 Helm, 1 Main Hand and 1 Offhand. The other 2 slots are for Potions, Keys and other miscalenous items.
5. Does the game require dedication, skill, good Teamwork and even TeamSpeak for any kind of success?
-The first 4-5 Bosses can be done without a problem, but the later encounters, especially the last 2-3 Bosses require knowledge of the fight, advanced unit control and yes, TeamSpeak is required, because typing takes too long sometimes and 1 mistake can be critical or can even cause a wipe.
7. When is the Official Release of the map going to happen?
-When I can play it and not find any bugs or when people stop reporting bugs. I'm hoping this can happen in the next 2-3 weeks or sooner since me and my little "guild" haven't yet made it to the later bosses.

    I dislike the lack of screen-shots and the change-log. If it's based on another map (even if it's yours), it should contain some "real" information about what you've modified from the previous prototype.

    I do believe he at least was inspired by "Impossible Bosses"
    To be honest I haven't really seen any other boss maps than IB anyways, except for one map I played once and it was never hosted again.

    Anyways, the map looks nice from the pictures, I hope to see it hosted sometime later (Cause I can't host:vw_sad:)

    Well, I have never played IB so I can't really say it has inspired me in anyway.
    And, if you can't host just PM me - we might play with my buddies sometime :)

    Hi again,About the hero Elementalist,Crafted Lightning and the Arcane spell are based on 1 spell.So when i click to cast the Arcane spell if the lightning isn't in CD,it casts the lightning.No matter if i use hotkeys or not.Just wc3 can't detect what spell i'am casting because they are both based on 1 spell.I had this problem too in my map.You must remake 1 of the spells and base it on another spell.If u are too busy i can do it for you in demo map and send it to you.

    P.S : I like the map and i vote for approval :thumbs_up: :xxd:

    Well I didn't actually make this on purpose, but now I like the idea that Arcane Disruption must come before Crafted Lightning that's why I left it like that and wrote in the description of one of the spells that one must come after the other.

    Beta4 will include a new spell that will replace Crafted Lightning anyway so there will be no problem with that.

    I think the lack of abilities is what makes this game a little boring late-game maybe you should make it so you have to kill certain bosses maybe different ones for other classes and get their rare items to turn into tier 2 and have the same amount of abilities but be higher level than 10 and more ability choices.
