    Hmm thank you very much for informing me about the crashes, going to look into and probably change those spells completely, its odd too because they are literally just basic wc3 spells with balance changes.

    The urn in the crypt keeper job is created by the morgue when it burns the body provided to him from the hospitals ambulance event, it's a player based event chain.
    The airport is really just for looks right now, i do want to add some kind of terrorist job opportunity to it though, shouldn't be a mafia helipad, but they use the same model, the two with helicopters landing are just for show right now, the one below that is the new alien ship vendor site.

    soul of the spirit beast.. i think it comes from the white tiger boss north of the fire archer altar

    You where right about both crashing issues, thank you much for posting those, I have repaired them for the next verison, the golem ability is a weird one, staying away from boss splits for now. The shanker, i had removed the cast time and that caused the dot to literally damage a target every 0.00 seconds, completely redid that spell.

    I pretty much did everything you requested in fact, didn't slam the nerfhammer quite as hard as you suggested, but there are some substantial nerfs to the drug harvester, the ring and the sale price of the bank robbed gem sack.

    I'm going to see if I can get the Wc3 reforged editor before I release this though, if I can I will easily be able to do a much, much larger patch.

    I released 6.4.5, please download it and discontinue using older versions to prevent potential crashing from the Earth Golem and Prison Escape bosses.
    Next patch will likely be done for Wc3 reforged.

    No, it sadly isn't possible to play updated LoaP Ascension maps on the most stable of warcraft patch versions. Disregarding what Daethz said, you're gonna have to use v6.2.3 for that version of Warcraft 3.

    Loap Ascension is great & all, especially in multiplayer, but:

    I checked out some Forums on how to get the last hard-to-get Ascended hero & apparently there's supposed to be a "New In-game hint directing the player with the correct Hero and Item combination to Ascending when they are near the Altar of Ascension." of which I found no such thing going near & around said Altar. Or this is supposed to be some kind of 'supporter only' trigger?

    I haven't found any patch changes related to said hint so it's got to be some kind of bug or as I said ^^^.
    Using v1.27, v1.30 and most updated version of Warcraft 3 here. Also tested multiple LoaP Ascension versions such as the version with said update and the newest one. No "hint".

    Either there's something wrong with the triggering such as only 1 specific player color may activate the hint, wrong/unspecified/non-existing region OR the factors to activate the hint trigger is too diluted with hidden conditions the players won't possibly know exist such as needing a specific hero/item/item combo to activate the hint trigger in the first place of which is possible considering people test triggers without properly implementing them.

    I did add a hint but it only triggers under very specific circumstances, Ill put it on my list to add another hint that's less conditional.
    Ill just say right now, you need to be a specific secret hero and you need a specific super strong item in your inventory while you do an action.

    Also throwing on my immediate to do list to further improve the ascended hero, right now hes rigged but rather basic, many of his spells literally recovered from old god spells.

    But to everyone keep in mind I always design and update LoaP Ascension to the LATEST Live version of warcraft 3, when the newer patches hit blizzard substantially changed things in the world editor, and the moment i opened my map editor with that new update those substantial changes where automatically implemented into the base code of the game.

    lol theres no way ill remake the game from scratch, from what I understand maps should still work in reforged.
    If thats the case I absolutely plan on making improvements with the new stuff.
    I'm actually waiting for it to download right now.

    It works in reforged.

    But my goodness are the city terrain colors washed out and overbright, will def need to improve those.

    But reforged is so buggy right now i want to hold off for fixes.

    Hello, on the LoaP Ascension v6.4.5 I'm running into the issue of the Power of the Flames drop from God of Fire boss spawning underneath the terrain and I am unable to pick it up. If I do a selection box over it I am able to select it, but my hero cannot pick it up. I have killed the boss at least 5 times on multiple map remakes and am still getting the issue. Otherwise it is a fantastic map and having a great time with it.

    LoaP Ascension Glitch
    EDIT:Seems to be tied to reforged graphics, on swapping to classic Power of the Flames is able to be picked up

    2nd Glitch:
    With the Abomination of Frost after using bionic enhancement to get speed to 500 after using Flight of Frost his speed resets to default


    Also where is the Jeweler for the ring of corruption, I've looked everywhere?

    Had a game crash on killing the Grim Reaper for the whole Lobby.

    Feedback: With the Soulreaper after its kill threshold to become grim reaper hero (120ish) everytime you kill a mob after it notifies you to go back to become the hero yourself. After a certain point (say 150ish) can that notification be turned off or made every 50 kills or something? With it being one of only 2 lifesteal items that are good (sword of corruption being the other) the notification becomes annoying if you intend to hold one in your inv for its effect.

    Stumbled upon this map and have been exploring secrets ever since. Apart from the usual crashes (cyborg and mutant skills) game is pretty stable,as long as you dont trip the bugs. I've been wondering if there are certain heroes you cant unlock playing alone? Especially the Ascended Hero? Got the staff of eternity, played of course as a reaper with the scythe ( made it a a habit to make duplicates of items and give them to pets in case the item disappears post combination) also got all the elements, combined it at the tree, go the element of purity, wore all that and approached the altar. I understand a certain action needs to be done. I tried activating the altar via the element of purity or using the staff of eternity in front of it but its a no go. Unless I missed something, maybe I shouldnt have combined the elements yet as hinted by the elements behind the altar?

    Also just a few suggestions, guy above is right, the scythe gets annoying after a while, especially if you intend to keep it. I think it would be best if theres an option to disable it, or maybe "reset" it by having it be a skill that gives attribute points per 125 kills (like maybe 10 points to agi str int per 150 kills). I would also like to point out some glitches/bugs that might perhaps improve gameplay:

    • The electricity effect at the power plants stacks if you you did not kill the boss causing it and the same event triggers again.
    • After having all the required items and your hero turns into a super soldier, it prompts that you lack the required items even though you transformed into one.
    • Reforge related but I think its a recurring problem throughout all custom maps, runes or auras turned into items cannot be picked up.
    • Abomination of Frost reverts to its default movement speed when flying.
    • Perhaps have the creep improvement at the mall scale by percentage? it comes to a point where a dozen of marines can easily overpower an avenger ezco bot even if both are fully upgraded.
    • Still reforge related, some models drastically have their scales bigger compared to its classic counterparts.

    I was hoping for some wc3 reforged patches before I really started working on it ><
    Scared of there being some sort of big editor bug that kills everyones maps.

    I have made backup copys already though.

    I fixed a few of the things you guys have listed, also made the game darker because holy f* is reforged way too bright, especially the cityscape lighting.
    Releasing 6.4.6 now, about that abomination of frost speed issue, I may just max out his default speed in the next patch, because his flying transform seems to be glitching that out.

    Thanks man. Appreciate it. Just extensively testing the game alone atm so i cant play some jobs or trigger conditions that would otherwise need multiplayer gameplay. Trying to make my friends play the game. lol. Just a question though, is it intentional that some part time jobs require tedious micromanagement? Sometimes it feels like these part time jobs (Mcdonalds, Farm, trash, morgue) feel like full time jobs with all the micromanagement. Also, just a little nitpick, suppose the top camp should be army and not marines? The major service trifecta being the army, navy and air force after all. Would it be also possible the doctor job can have an upgrade for its ambulance? Perhaps have an air ambulance upgrade, also a respawn (it can be a long one for balance) incase it gets destroyed by aliens, zombies or a a guy with a morgue job that needs profit. I hope I dont come off as spammy but I honestly see potential in the game and can be its own brand, not as LOAP, but some sort of big hero treasue hunt where players aim for the best hero. Speaking of the ultimate secret hero, wouldnt it be fun if it can be "stolen" via killing the current player who is god? Would give players something to unite against.

    Just a side note, but it looks like the plants in the drug farm are invisible when using classic graphics. You can work around it by using a spell like Incinerate to nuke some of them down, which causes them to reappear temporarily when they regrow.
