Other Campaigns in Turnro’s Warcraft 3 Series


Important Notes
- You will need to update Warcraft 3 to the latest patch version before playing Malfurion’s Quest (v1.30 at minimum). Otherwise, you will experience problems that will prevent you from playing the campaign. To update Warcraft 3, click on the following link: Patching Classic Games
- The normal background music of Warcraft 3 has been replaced with better music. Be sure to enable music through your profile as it is an integral part of the campaign experience
- If you use the ‘WhosYourDaddy’ cheat while playing Malfurion’s Quest on Hard difficulty, you will automatically lose the mission

Found a Bug , the Game keeps crashing on Quest #2 Trail of the betrayer while im at the highbourne towers and units while fighting them it crashes

This bug was introduced as a result of the v1.31 update for Warcraft 3. Fortunately, I have updated Malfurion's Quest since then, so re-downloading the campaign should resolve the problem.

You don't understand anything from what I'm writing.

You can!? Well, then, you've solved part of the issue. Play level 2 again. It's the only way.
4.After Download and playing the new custom campaign files, you cant restart from last level played you must restart all the campaign from the level 1.
So you can't then!? I'm lost.

Wait, you're saying the patch version killed the save files? I thought you replaced the campaign with a newer campaign version.

Anyway, here's the campaign starting from level 2 (the mission button is visible). See attachment link below (the link will be up for only 30 days).

I just download the latest version and put it in the campaign folder, yet it was nowhere to be found in the list of custom campaign, does anyone else have the same problem?

Completed on Hard, got all legendary items.

This looked promising from the very beginning and the missions are various and interesting, but near the end I think the creator burned out and was exhausted.

As for story, Furion's change of character was out of nowhere. Not believable that he could fall so quick and with almost no build-up. Not with personality of such magnitude.
And after that he basically becomes nazi with mental development of 14-year-old. Every dialog (especially near the end) is a dick-measuring contest.
And ####### with such ease, no regrets, no remorse, nothing. Are you kidding me? He would be extremely tormented in the end, final destination Silent Hill.

Boss fights are too drawn out and not dynamic. Especially near the end, you just stand and attack 90% of the time, and fights last for 5-10 minutes. Final fight is confusing and could be designed better.
And catching Faradrella is annoying. Did we really need the second time (controlling a snail-speed pitlord, with poison-slow from dryads, wtf)?

Also, Furion's Firewave Level 4 has no visual special effect.
Oh, and it was crashing (WC 1.31.1) in the end of Mission 7 every time (right after clicking "Continue" when victory dialogue shows up), even after fresh restart. Good thing that you can just go to campaign screen and select next level manually.

You have to complete the first part of "The Escape" quest before you can teleport to that obelisk, as it leads to the later parts of the map.

Hi Turnro, first of all I just wanna say I love ur campaigns especially this one as Malfurion its one of my favorite wow characters, looking foward to its final release.
Although I have a bug of some sort which I dont know if it was reported by anyone, looked in the comments quite a bit, seems to be just my problem. My Malfurion model shows a blue shape of the hero, as well as in the icon. I am using 1.26 version suspecting this might be a issue.

Hi Adrian, unfortunately Malfurion's Quest was made to only be compatible with the current version of Warcraft 3. The current version is 1.31.1.

Finished this and here we go:
I played all missions on hard and on the latest patch.

~~My review~~

~~Negatives/Bugs~~

~Overall~

- Even tho i like the large variety of items, it really pained me to see that at times i just had too many good items and i had to give up on a lot of them (even my backpack was full)!
My suggestion for this is implementig the power to create recipes with the backpack, so the player can combine multiple good items and not having to just abandon them on the ground.
Exemples of recipes: This are all items that 100% will drop i think, so you will get them every time.

All recipes are made out of 4 , 5 or 6 items, New recipes will show up with every mission in the Backpack as a list, to be able to form the recipe the player has to write "-create" in chat with all the items in a hero's inventory.

~-~ "Red Ring of Greater superiority" [+3 all stats , +20% mana regen and +100 hp] = Ring of superiority [+1 all stats] + Ruby of health [+50 hp] + Token of agility [+1 agi] + Token of inteligence [+1 int] + Mana stone [+25% mana regen]
item combination 1.png

~-~ "Permanent Granite Golem" [same stats/spells as a normal Granite Golem] = Stone token + Potion of mana + Potion of greater mana + Scroll of protection + Scroll of restoration.
golem recipe items 2.png

~-~ "Nature sapphire set of the oracle" = [+5 all stats , +125 hp/mp , + 35% mana regen] = Staff of the oracle [+5 int and 25% magic resist] + Nature's breastplate [+75 hp and +2 armor] + Gloves of haste [+15% as] + Sapphire of mana [+50 mana] + Sapphire necklace [+25% mana regen]
recipe 3.png

~-~ "Fiery Ring of Courage" [+6 str , + 4 int , + 3 hp regen] = Ring of life [+100 hp and +1 hp regen] + Token of strenght [+3 str] + Orb of fire [+6 dmg] + Pendant of energy [+150 mp] + Scroll of mana.
recipe number 4.png

~-~ "Unholy nature set" [unholy aura lvl 2 , +8 int , +5 armor and poison orb effect on hit] = Book of the spider [endurance aura lvl 1] + Darkmoon necklace [+5 int and blocks a spell 40sec. cd.] + Mask of darkness [+3 armor and +100 hp] + Health stone [+1 regen] + Nature's amulet [+200 hp] + Orb of venom [+5 dmg]
recipe 5.png

~-~ "Shadow dragon set of great resistance" [+13 dmg , +6 int , +300 mana and + 50% magic resist] = Darkmoon staff [+5 dmg , +150 mana and lighting orb effect] + Shadow blade [+5 int and +5 dmg] + Dragonstone [+200 mp and 33% magic resist] + Wand of resistence [33% magic resist] + Forest emerald [+3 int and +50 mana] + Blessed robe [+4 int]
recipe 6.png

~-~ "Greater staff of corruption" [+10 int , +6 hp regen , -4 armor orb effect and summons 3 corrupted treants] = Staff of corruption [+8 int and summons 2 treants] + Orb of corruption [+5 dmg and -4 armor effect] + Essence of Aszune [heals 250hp when used] + Token of healing [3hp regen]
recipe 7.png

- This is just a personal gameplay critique so you can ignore it, I really hate when my heroes have average move speed, i understand that maybe some heroes are just slow cuz they are old maybe, but to be fair that affects the gameplay too much for me, in my opinion there should be only 2 types of speed: fast (for the majority of heroes like str/int heroes that walk on 2 feet without a Mount) and very fast (for agi heroes, mounted heroes and demigod hybrid heroes that have more than 2 feet) ~ except if their fat then they should have just fast ms (Pitlords for exemple).
So why that? Because:
1.Those average ms heroes slow down my control group too much, it pains me to see that all my units have fast move speed but because of this slow ass hero that has average move speed my entire army has to walk slow!
2.Because the hero is slower than my units they will eventually block eachother a lot more than usual, impacting the gameplay in a negative way.
3.And another point against average ms is just the fact of wasting time overall by walking slow.

- The spell Lifesurge seems to have a cap of 2 units for the damage part (it looks like it deals damage in only 300 range if there are more than 2 units in the way), if there are 3 units in a line and i use the spell against them only the first 2 units get damaged while the 3rd one doesn't get affected at all (doesn't happen all the time), not sure this is intended or not.

- Firewave spell, similar to Furion's first druid aoe spell it seems to have a cap of damage dealt, deals damage only to the first targets and not to the ones from the back and it doesn't hit the entire radius of the animation as well, by that i mean it doesn't hit on the edges of the fire animation.
Exemple of the animation hitting the trolls but it deals no damage to them:
exemple of no damage while hitting.png

- There are some sort of visual glitches happening in almost all missions, they last for maximum 2 seconds:
glitch visuals.png

- Orb of corruption reduces armor by 4, but the tooltip says 5.

~Chapter 1
- Crates sometimes are too small and almost invisible, so i suggest making them more visible:
Crates beeing too small exemple.png

- Even tho these trees kinda look cool, walking on them makes the units glitch out and makes them really confused as well, either remove the tree bridge or repair it somehow.
tree looks weird while walking on it.png

- You can walk through the pedestal of the horn.
pedestal.png , pedestal 2.png

- There is a weird empty space near the end:
weird empty space.png
(Replayed all missions on normal after i finished the campaign and had to use cheats to get faster to some points.)

~Chapter 3

- My fps dropped since the beginning of the mission (by 30-40 fps), no idea why, but it made the gameplay pretty bad.

- There were some cutscenes that had some bad view points:
furbolg visuals bug.png , furbolg visuals bug number 2, same cutscene.png

- At that point when we have to catch the daughter of cenarius, the game should give a tip to the player that Malfurion got a new spell, otherwise it might make the player fail the mission since he has no idea what to do.
exemple -> "Tip: Furion got a new spell in order to catch Faradrella"


~Chapter 4 part 1

- Some visual views that look bad in some cutscenes:
Mission 4 part 1 visuals.png , Mission 4 part 1 druid cutscene.png , This kinda looks ok, but still weird.png

- Just as a funny thing to say, this was the only mission where i died in the whole campaign, killed by bears, they perma bashed me! :sad:


~Chapter 4 part 2

- At the end part where we have to race for the key and destroy the crystals, it seems like there is a bug with the way gates, when i have Malfurion and the other priestess selected and try to go through the way gate it doesn't work, only when i go with 1 unit at a time it works. (this actually made me fail the mission the first time i did it, i was pretty pissed. :angry:


~Chapter 5

- Same problem with the waygates like in chapter 4 part 2, the units get confused when i try to go through the way gate, it only works when i go with only 1 unit at a time.

~Chapter 6

- There is a weird item stranded here, i cannot get to it.
no idea whats with this item there.png

- I wanted more of those druids of the jaw, wanted them to transform in their animal form, maybe a jaguar or black panther.
0.png

~Chapter 7

- So yea this was the mission where i got stuck, the thing is i searched for the other units in order to join me, but i just didn't find them at the time, i guess i'm a bit blind thats for sure, i thought the other units that i need to save were the ones that were in prison (didn't notice at the time that was just a different optional quest and not the main quest), so i didn't think there were any more units in that first area, thats why i was so confused!
My suggestion for this little problem is just implementing a small tip if the player doesn't do any progress after lets say 3 - 5 minutes and he tries to teleport to the obelisk, a tip should appear on the screen, something like this -> "Tip: You cannot teleport and leave this area untill you have found all 5 units for the main quest, so go back and search for the rest, they are all in the same area".

- The fight at the end with that Demon lady was pretty boring, i expected more from her, maybe give her a bit more hp and a few other spells, since she is an agi hero how about critical strike, she was too weak.

- Something happened with the shield of darkness while fighting the satyrs, the shield started to remain in that blocking stage even when i run out of combat, the sound and the animation of the shield blocking against piercing kept going for a while then it stopped.
sheld bug.png

~Chapter 8

- The same problem, the boss fight with Cenarius was pretty lame, the moment with the infernals was cool but anything else wasn't, i just A clicked him for 5 minutes and thats it, he should be able to do more dmg with his spells, and have more aoe spells that require the player to avoid it (similar to the Kil'jaden fight).

~Chapter 9'

- Just this visual view was bad:
visuals 3.png


~~Positives~~

- Malfurion having a backpack, with an inventory that increases over time by completing quests, really interesting.

- The terrain looks good, in some missions the terrain is worthy of having it as a wallpaper.

- Introduction of music outside of War3, usually it's hard to make it work, but in this case it worked pretty good, even tho some mission could have had some of this new music as well.

- A decent amount of a variety of new items with unique spells/skins.

- A lot of new gorgeous unit and hero skins, the night elf guardians faction was my favorite, those dark green + gold colors blended so well together! and this hero skin was one of my favorites as well:
love this skin, pure badass.png

- A decent amount of crates/barrels/egg sacks with tomes/items. (Even tho some of the crates were quite hard to spot in some missions, especially when they were in water, so i suggest increasing the size of those crates).

- I like that the game informs the player when is a good time to save before a big battle or boss fight.

- Not beeing able to use cheats on Hard, i like it, this will give the gameplay a more realistic view and make players work hard and fair for their rewards.
Cheats that cause defeat on hard: only "whosyourdaddy" and this one doesn't do anything -> "allyourbasearebelongtous". It seems like only those 2 don't work on hard, my suggestion is to make the others don't work as well.
Cheats that work fine on hard: "iseedeadpeople" , "thereisnospoon" , "greedisgood" , "warpten".

- The last 2 fights with Kil'jaden and Illidan at the end were good, i loved them, i almost died against Kil'jaden (i was at 5% hp when the battle was over :xxd:, to be fair i kinda underestimated him and didn't avoid his spells for a while thinking the fight was too easy). :grin:

- Faradrella and the Ancient of wonders are my favorite characters :thumbs_up: , loved every dialogue with them!


Overall i had a good time playing through this campaign, really enjoyed it, i don't see this often these types of stories where the main guy becomes like one of the evil characters, quite refreshing, i also loved all the dialogues between the characters, i find it hilarious how Furion after becoming corrupt started calling everyone weaklings :D, talking to a Demi-god meeh weakling!, talking to demon lords from other dimensions meeeh weaklings :D
I can't wait to see the other paths as well in the future so good luck with that and thanks for creating this superb campaign!


~~Funny~~

-

He condemns it at first but proceeds to do the exact same thing for the rest of the campaign :grin:

Another quick question, just out of curiosity. Some warcraft universe characters (e.g Sargeras/Archimonde/Mannoroth/Deathwing/Malygos) do not exist in this universe/timeline?

Most of them probably don't have important roles in turnro's universe,which you have to play his other three campaigns to get a full picture of.

Burning Legion maybe was once led by Sargeras,who was killed by someone(Aegwyn?) long time ago.His death has left an empty throne to three candidates:Azgalor,Tichondrius and Kil'Jaedon,who set off a power struggle and scheme each other for years.In the end - at the beginning of Malfurion's Quest - Kil'Jaedon stood out as the leader of Buring Legion.The other two's fates were revealed in Jeopardy of the Horde and Resurrection of the Scourge.

I see. So, because Azgalor is the most powerful/leader of the Pit Lords, Mannoroth doesn't exist? Same about Archimonde? And can you give me a small spoiler, does Lady Vashj die in any The Adventures of Rowan the Wise v4.4/Jeopardy of the Horde v3.2/Resurrection of the Scourge. I mean you fight some random Sea Withch in chapter nine. Also does Lord Xavius die or exist? I mean the satyrs (rightfully) have such a big role in the campaign, and he, the most powerful and their leader, isn't even mentioned.

Turnro has mentioned that Magtheridon was the last of his kind,implying that other Pit Lords including Azgalor had been slained during battles.

lastpitlord.jpg


If I remembered correctly,it was Thrall who killed them in Jeopardy of the Horde.

Same about Archimonde?
Archimonde does exist somehow,but I can't remember whether he appeared or not in Rowan the Wise.

archimonde.jpg

Lady Vashj was absent in Turnro's earlier campaigns.I think Turnro is planning to put Lady Vashj into Sentinel storyline in the future.

Also does Lord Xavius die or exist?
Xavius also crossed my mind when I finished Malfurion's Quest for the first time.Was he behind all of this?Did he corrupt Malfurion's mind?It was a most likely theory considering Turnro was developing Highborne storyline during WoW 7.0.However,I have seen a thread earlier perhaps(not sure when and where) posted by Turnro or FallenStar,which claimed that Xavius wasn't reponsible for this.

Massive reply! Thanks. A little spoiler.
It was Eredon the Illusionist who corrupted the Dream and whispered to Malfurion. Ysera says that in chapter 10. However it's possible that he just recruited Xavius and the Satyrs to corrupt the dream and the forest and weaken the Night Elves. And that he was behind the dream corruption and the corruption of the forest, and it's possible that he will be a boss fight when/if the sentinel story happens.

However it's possible that he just recruited Xavius and the Satyrs to corrupt the dream and the forest and weaken the Night Elves. And that he was behind the dream corruption and the corruption of the forest, and it's possible that he will be a boss fight when/if the sentinel story happens.
Oh,thanks.I didn't notice that character...he seems to be an NPC coming from nowhere,probably leading the story into a typical Deus ex machina style.

No. Actually, the character was first introduced in the second (orc) campaign, than in the third (undead) campaign and will definitely have some role in this final (night elf) campaign. FallenStar mentioned that we shall see him as the enemy, most likely as a boss.
It seems as if you haven't played any/some of the previous campaigns, so you don't know much of a story characters. I recommend you play them before the full release of the Sentinel storyline, so that you can experience the game in the right way being familiar with the storyline.
Archimonde does exist somehow,but I can't remember whether he appeared or not in Rowan the Wise.



Lady Vashj was absent in Turnro's earlier campaigns.I think Turnro is planning to put Lady Vashj into Sentinel storyline in the future
I already asked question about Archimonde and Mannoroth before and Turnro replied me that both Archimonde and Mannoroth won't make an appearance in Malfurion's Quest. Whether Archimonde is alive or not is irrelevant.
The demon you remember from Adventures of Rowan the Wise was actually Eredon The Illusionist who will
Now, about Lady Vashj. She is a naga who is you enemy in the third (undead) campaign. The chapter where Vashj makes an appearance as the enemy is chapter three. It's a chapter where you have to destroy naga bases (two huge bases I think) with dreadlords and your limited skeleton army. Vashj is a naga hero of the blue base, if I remember correctly...

Yeah, it's Eredon that corrupted Ysera's mind. I figured that one out when Ysera told that to Malfurion. Might be Xavius or Eredon who also corrupted Malfurion's mind as well, since Kil'Jaeden is final battle against Malfurion said it's a know yet ancient power that corrupted Malfurion's mind. Might even be Sargeras or the Old Gods, who knows? Time wil tell, I guess (as Turnro likes to say :cool:2).

Turnro has mentioned that Magtheridon was the last of his kind,implying that other Pit Lords including Azgalor had been slained during battles.

If I remembered correctly,it was Thrall who killed them in Jeopardy of the Horde.

Xavius also crossed my mind when I finished Malfurion's Quest for the first time.Was he behind all of this?Did he corrupt Malfurion's mind?It was a most likely theory considering Turnro was developing Highborne storyline during WoW 7.0.However,I have seen a thread earlier perhaps(not sure when and where) posted by Turnro or FallenStar,which claimed that Xavius wasn't reponsible for this.

I've just rewatched the Prologue. It seems I was wrong. Both Archimonde and Mannoroth appear in the prologue during the War of the Ancients. It seems that both have died in the War of the Ancients and that's how Azgalore/Kil'Jaeden rose to lead the Pit Lords/Eredar. So that means that Sargeras died later and left Azgalor/Kil'Jaeden/Tichondrious the leaders of the three most powerful Legion races Pit Lords/Eredar/Dreadlords in a GoT for who will lead the Legion.
Lady Vashj being a random hero in a base is kinda lame, but I also understand Turnro and FallenStar, cause if she was in Malfurion's Quest they would have to include her in a boss fight somehow or make her one, and making boss fights is not easy.
That only leaves the question of Xavius and Blue/Black Aspect. We don't know if they exist in this universe. Turnro and FallenStar probably don't know that either at this point.

I've played those old versions several years ago despite Turnro has updated some of them recently.So I couldn't remember every detail of NPCs.Thank you for correcting me,would you like to share some screenshots to me or point out the chapters which introduced Eredon?

And did Lady Vashj die?

You're welcome. Why, of course!
- The first time we can see Eredon is in Adventures of Rowan The Wise chapter seven (Curse of the Blood Elves) when Arthas's Necromancer summons him.
- The second time we see Eredon is in Jeopardy of the Horde. We can see him in the last four or five chapters alltogether of the campaign. In fact, right before the battle with Azgalor, he is a sub-boss at the end of the last chapter (Destiny of the Horde) that you have to kill in order to proceed with the chapter.
- In Ressurection of the Scourge, Eredon is seen in the final cinematic, standing right next to Kil'jaeden.

Lady Vashj had to die. You had to kill her and destroy her base, as you will not pass the third chapter in Ressurection of the Scourge if you don't destroy it. The priority of that chapter was to destroy her base, along with one more naga base.

Oh, really? Eredon was the puny demon that he could summon?

It happen because TFT doesn't recognize the campaign files from the WC3 directory, but from the Documents folder instead. Try to place the campaign in your Campaign folder in WC3 from Documents directory. For example: Documents -> Warcraft 3 -> Campaign

When is the night elf path expected to release (I mean prediction as in date, like a couple of months or is it gonna get re hauled with Reforged)? I wanna play with Malfurion's E ability, it's so crazy good (hopefully doesn't get nerfed, I mean it is countered by dispel).

I’ve been replaying this campaign for the last few weeks. I know you won’t update it for a while, and that the future is uncertain(besides other reasons we have no clue about Reforged). But I found a bug and a few minor bugs and have a few questions and thoughts, and felt the urge to post it. It's version 1.31.1.something. I played the first eight chapters on hard. Tried chapter 9 on hard, got destroyed two times, then completed on normal chapters 9 and 10. Will try 9 and 10 on hard later.

BUGS:
  1. Kath’ranis boss fight was broken. He just stood there attacking a random unit and doing nothing else, until he died. He didn’t teleport away, have ground exploding or send more Highborne at me. I did use save and load, had to Malfurion died.
  2. Whenever Malfurion was poisoned or diseased, the Shield of Darkness kept blocking the attack with visual and sound blocking effect(Sooooo annoying)
  3. The dialog when Malfurion confronts Remulos has quite a few typos/grammatical errors.
  4. In many cutscenes and cinematics throughout the campaign the characters are talking behind the opstical. Some that I remember: When Malfurion and Kath’ranis are talking with the Furbolg chieftain in chapter 3, when Malfurion meets Tyrande in chapter 4, when he talks to the Druid in Astranaar, when talking to the Druids of the Jaw iirc, in big Naga base in chapter 9, when he confronts Illidan in chapter 10, in the epilogue, somewhere in chapter 7 don’t remember where.
GAMEPLAY:

Gamplay was really fun. This is possibly the longest campaign ever. Every mission takes more than 90 mins to complete. Well done. And all are really diverse and fun with a lot of elements and gameplay. My favorites are 5 and 8. I just have a few questions and some stuff:
  • To give the feeling of continuity with chapters 1 and 2, in chapter 3, before the base building part, the timer should be fixed to midnight like in chapters 1 and 2. Also Sentinel units should have tier one attack and armor upgrades and ultravision. Would help to feel continuity with chapters 1 and 2. And hide would be really helpful to archers/huntresses/sentries in those type of missions.
  • Might also be good to fix the timer every time there is no base building?
  • Also noticed that in chapters 3 and 5, Furbolg Shamans do not use Barkskin and Healing Wave. Why not?
  • Would it be better if we got the treant quest in chapter 6 in the main map, telling us to go to the sub map, to visit the grove of the Ancients?
  • In chapter 6 bonus map we can not train the largest corrupted treant that has Disease Cloud. Why not? Would be more fun.
  • Also killing the Keeper in chapter 6 bonus should be part of the quest. Would be more fun and makes sense to kill the leader of the ancients/treants.
  • In chapter 5 Guardian unit(male unit, forgot the name :p) has medium armor, while in all others it has heavy. Was that on purpose?
  • Also noticed that in chapter 7 the satyrs don’t attack you. Why not?
  • Imo would be better if in chapter 8 the main quest would be not to lose a single obelisk. Would make more tension and be more fun.
  • Might be better when claiming the second obelisk in chapter 8, there were less corrupted beasts and more satyrs and corrupted treants. There were more than enough beasts at the first obelisk.
  • Would you consider replacing Firewave in Twisted Ancient Form with Flame Strike. Would be more interesting to switch between the two heroes.
  • In chapter 9 among Legion forces there are no succubuses and shivarra. Why not? There were all Legion forces in chapter 7, and here, when we face the “main army” there are no these two.
  • The Keeper of the Grove in chapter 9 needs to go. It’s like the 10th Keeper we fight, especially after chapter 8. A Keeper in chapter 4, than 6, than like five in chapter 8, too many if you ask me.
  • Imo chapter 9 is too late to meet the Watcher units for the first time(Stalkers and Jailors). How about making them appear in chapter 5? When you go underground to corrupt the fountain and fight the Warden replace the Guardian units with Watcher units(Stalkers, Jailors, Wildkin, Lunar Archers). Would make sense that the Watchers are guarding the underground important place.
  • Also there is a whole Guardian base that’s used for nothing in chapter 5. Maybe make it a watcher base(without Chimaeras) and an optional to destroy it? Explaining that the Guardians are elite branch of the Watchers.
STORY:

Story is good, unique and fun though it has few problems/leaves a few questions:
  • In the Prologue the Oracle says that only one race will survive, Night Elves or Demons. And in the Epilogue in Malfurion’s army there are both Demons and Night Elves(Highborne).
  • Why does Malfurion all of a sudden want to destroy Raynwood Retreat and Silverwind Refuge?
  • Also shouldn’t his and Tyrande’s reunion be more emotional? Their love was supposed to be legendary. He killed her too easily, he should still love her at that point. If I got it right in chapter 10 he loved her the whole time?
  • If the Key to Mount Hyjal was needed, how did Azhara and Kil’Jaeden come there?
  • If the Portal was destroyed how did Mother Sharaz, Magtheridon and Kil’Jaeden manage to get large armies to Azeroth?
  • Did Alexstrasza die off camera?
VISUALS:

Visuals are stunning. The terrain was nailed. Every chapter looks stunning. Everything is just stunning. Though some small stuff:
  • Malfurion’s Egyptian skin looks really out of place. He looks nothing like the rest of the Highborne. He needs a new skin desperately.
  • Malfurion gets a new skin after the world explosion. That makes no sense. Wouldn’t he wash up and change after the Highborne regrouped. That skin is awesome and he should instead get it after obtaining Ysera’s Hearth. He has story reasons to get a new skin then.
  • Would you consider giving Malfurion in Twisted Ancient form (Corrupted) Ancient of War voice lines? Would make this form look and sound more monstrous.
  • In Twisted Ancient Form Malfurion has the ability that throws down meteros. Would it be possible to make thouse meteors Rain of Fire ones, instead of Inferno ones. Inferno ones are kinda out of place, cause Malfurion has no Demon or Fel powers.
  • Velinde needs a new skin from chapter 7. Like Egyptian Malfurion, she looks nothing like the rest of the Highborne.
  • Medivh changes his skin through the Campaign. Why?
  • I think that night elf Ysera uses an outdated models. Possibly the other Aspects too.
  • I’m not a fan of Azshara’s model. She looks like a sea witch from a Japanese horror manga.
  • Shalis needs a different skin. She looks more like a blood elf, than a night elf.
  • Tyrande might look better without the leaves and with blue hair. The fall leaves in her hair really look out of place, at least they should be green.
  • Kath’ranis is a good hero. Though he could use a different name. It’s just a generic Blood mage name. Maybe rename him to some Highborne from WoW(e.g Mordest Evenshade, Prince Tortheldrin etc…)
  • Have you thought about renaming Faradrella to Lunara? Faradrella is a random dryad, and Lunara is the most powerful daughter of Cenarius.
  • Have you considered renaming Lady Darkscale to Lady Vashj(she survived the Dreadlords)? I mean it's hard to imagine Illidan and the Naga without her.
  • I think that the artifact name "Ysera's Hearth" doesn't really fit. Either story wise, and Ysera's fight while you have her "hearth" sounds weird. Maybe use some other name like "Hearth of the Land", "Essence of Nature", "Hearth of the Emerald Dream", "Essence of the Emerald Dream" etc... Crazy idea, maybe rename to "Hearth of Azeroth", would explain why Malfurion becomes so powerful, and "Azeroth's Hearth Beat" would be an awesome name for the chapter.
  • I think it would be visually stunning that the Magtheridon’s Demons were purple all the way. Look just how awesome it looks in the interlude with red Highborne and purple Magtheridon and demons. Red doesn’t really suit them. Also story reasons, in chapter 7 the Highborne become red once they are enslaved by Malfurion, and the Demons are his allies, not slaves.
TECHTREE:

Highborne love it. Looks really like I would imagine the Highborne during the War of the Ancients, in WC3 environment. Love that they also have Demons, just like in War of the Ancients. Love all the powerful spellcaster, Clerics reviving, Enchantresses silencing heroes, Highmistresses units that can change the whole battle, Arcane Wyrms with absorbing. Though Demoness’s Parasite could use a new icon. Something more like Torture, Curse, Void etc.. Also have you thought about enabling Ultravision upgrade to the Highborne. They are still Night Elves. It’s a simple upgrade that can make things a lot easier. And towers are kinda weak. Maybe make their attack do magic damage, and give them Feedback ability. Would make defending your base easier and assulting Highborne enemy base harder. Would also fit the Highborne culture well.

Sentinel is very interesting. Love the idea to fight different part of the sentinel tech tree. Sentinels in chapter 4, Guardians in chapter 5, Cenarion Circle in chapter 8 and the Watchers in chapter 9. However there are two problems imo. Furbolg shaman looks out of place, furbolgs are already heavily present. How about replacing the with the Druid of the Brench(night elf), that has Barkskin(renamed), Healing Wave(or some other healing spell) and a Treant Form. Like the Furbolg Shaman supportive spellcaster, but can turn into a treant to fight when you attack them. Can use barkskin in Treant Form. They would look better, at least in chapter 8 where you fight the Cenarian Circle. Also I’m not a fan of the Sentinel techtree in chapter 9. Furbolgs and Wildkin look like they are thrown into a mesh. Maybe add Sentries and Huntresses as enemies, at least in Priestess’s base. it's the ultimate base building mission and all enemies should appear. Maybe also add a mini furbolg village next to Medivhs bases that sends all furbolg creeps to attack you.

BOSSFIGHTS:

Boss fights are really interesting. Everyone is unique. My favorites are Smolderas, Illidan(both) and Cenarius. Loved also Kath’ranis a lot, but now it’s broken. The rest are really good though:
  • Sharaz is really good idea when you fight shivarra and succubuses, but Sharaz herself could be more powerful. At least she could have immolation.
  • Kazzak is also good with Demons swarming you, but Kazzak himself didn’t seem to use any abilities.
However there are three bossfights I didn’t really like:
  1. Tyrande was just standing and fireing searing arrows at you. She is supposed to be one of the three most powerful Night Elves alive(beside Malfurion and Illidan). Beside the owls some archers/huntresses/sentries should also join the fight. Also she should be running around and using some more “starfalling abilities”.
  2. Medivh. I lloved the Azshara part. But Medivh not really. He multiplies and uses abilities, so you know which one is real. Also his abilities are kinda lame for the last guardian. At this point he should be a mage on par with Malfruion. I don’t know, maybe look at World of Warcraft or Heroes of the Storm for inspiration.
  3. Ysera’s fight is kinda boring. It comes down to destroying portals. She only uses sleep and stun. She should be the most powerful druid ever. You already have a dozen druid abilities. Also maybe make green wheps/drakes/dragons just appear without portals, so you have to fight them without the portals. I’m not really a fan of destroying gems. Maybe after she transforms into a dragon shen flies up and becomes invulnerable and starts healing. You have to kill three of her consorts (more powerful dragons with some abilities), who appear with some whelps/drakes/dragons on the corners of the battlefield. The sooner you kill them, the less Ysera is healed. After you kill them, she lands and fights you with empovered abilities. Also Ysera is using Onyxia’s model from WoW. Why? She would look much better with her own WoW model. Also she says her goddess is Elune, she is actually called Eonar.

Maybe add Sentries and Huntresses as enemies, at least in Priestess’s base. it's the ultimate base building mission and all enemies should appear. Maybe also add a mini furbolg village next to Medivhs bases that sends all furbolg creeps to attack you.

BOSSFIGHTS:

Boss fights are really interesting. Everyone is unique. My favorites are Smolderas, Illidan(both) and Cenarius. Loved also Kath’ranis a lot, but now it’s broken. The rest are really good though:
  • Sharaz is really good idea when you fight shivarra and succubuses, but Sharaz herself could be more powerful. At least she could have immolation.
  • Kazzak is also good with Demons swarming you, but Kazzak himself didn’t seem to use any abilities.
However there are three bossfights I didn’t really like:
  1. Tyrande was just standing and fireing searing arrows at you. She is supposed to be one of the three most powerful Night Elves alive(beside Malfurion and Illidan). Beside the owls some archers/huntresses/sentries should also join the fight. Also she should be running around and using some more “starfalling abilities”.
  2. Medivh. I lloved the Azshara part. But Medivh not really. He multiplies and uses abilities, so you know which one is real. Also his abilities are kinda lame for the last guardian. I don’t know, maybe look at Heroes of the Storm for inspiration.
  3. Ysera’s fight is kinda boring. It comes down to destroying portals. She only uses sleep and stun. She should be the most powerful druid ever. You already have a dozen druid abilities. Also maybe make green wheps/drakes/dragons just appear without portals, so you have to fight them without the portals. I’m not really a fan of destroying gems. Maybe after she transforms into a dragon shen flies up and becomes invulnerable and starts healing. You have to kill three of her consorts (more powerful dragons with some abilities), who appear with some whelps/drakes/dragons on the corners of the battlefield. The sooner you kill them, the less Ysera is healed. After you kill them, she lands and fights you with empovered abilities. Also Ysera is using Onyxia’s model from WoW. Why? She would look much better with her own WoW model. Also she says her goddess is Elune, she is actually called Eonar.


Hello there, we're glad you've enjoyed the Highborne storyline of Malfurion's Quest.
I cannot answer all of your questions, that is up to Turnro but I'll try and tackle some of those that I can.

1: BUGS

Most of these bugs weren't present when Malfurion's Quest was released (Kath'ranis, the camera being behind obstacles, etc.). That unfortunately happened due to Blizzard's updates to Warcraft III which messed up a lot of Warcraft Custom Campaigns. Some of these bugs will be looked into at a later time.

2: GAMEPLAY
"Imo would be better if in chapter 8 the main quest would be not to lose a single obelisk. Would make more tension and be more fun."
There's a cutscene if you do lose one of the obelisks. Your suggestion means that we need to cut that out and we'd rather not at this point.

"In chapter 9 among Legion forces there are no succubuses and shivarra. Why not? There were all Legion forces in chapter 7, and here, when we face the “main army” there are no these two."
From our perspective in this alternative universe the Burning Legion is formed by a coallition of several demonic factions. Mother Shahrazz leads most of the Shivarra and succubuses as well as Magtherion.
These units follow their respective leaders who in turn follow the Legion's leader. However, due to their inner conflicts, some of these branched out with their own motives (Shahraz leaving Kil'jaeden to fight Malfurion, Magtherion leaving the Black Citadel)
Once Mother Shahraz is killed the shivarra are off the table.


"In the Prologue the Oracle says that only one race will survive, Night Elves or Demons. And in the Epilogue in Malfurion’s army there are both Demons and Night Elves(Highborne)."
Malfurion controls everyone in the bad ending through his blood which resembles the fel energies. All races are his thralls now and are a part of his army unable to think or act of their own accord no matter their race.

"Why does Malfurion all of a sudden want to destroy Raynwood Retreat and Silverwind Refuge?"

He's aware that his ruse to trick the elves won't work forever as it didn't in Chapter 2 (He only had absorbed the first fountain of power and the ancients were able to recognize the energies within him).
Weakening the Night elves was apart of his plan as he knew they would become depended on him to defend Astrannar from the corrupted. If the other two settlements would've won, Astrannar would've been safe. This would result in Tyrande paying full attention to Malfurion and his change making him unable to reach the Temple of the Moon, let alone recover the key.

"Also shouldn’t his and Tyrande’s reunion be more emotional? Their love was supposed to be legendary. He killed her too easily, he should still love her at that point. If I got it right in chapter 10 he loved her the whole time?"
If he had met her when he absorbed the 1st fountain, perhaps things would've been different. However he was already too far gone by that point.
The reason why those scenes weren't made too dramatic it's simply because we didn't wanna turn the story into a drama-fest. We thought that it being quick, swift and pricise wouldn't detter from the main point of the game: Playing as the bad guy.
The highborne Malfurion is meant to be the polar opposite of Sentinel Malfurion. We didn't want something in between.


"If the Key to Mount Hyjal was needed, how did Azhara and Kil’Jaeden come there?"
As Malfurion states in Chapter 9: "Reaching Mount Hyjal is no easy task without the key"
While Malfurion went for Ysera's Heart heart and fought off Kath'ranis and Mother Shahraz, the Naga and the Legion were both advancing on the World Tree through tough areas meeting heavy Night Elves resistance.
Malfurion was able to catch up to them due to the fact that he had the key.


"If the Portal was destroyed how did Mother Sharaz, Magtheridon and Kil’Jaeden manage to get large armies to Azeroth?"
Portals can transport smaller armies and divisions. That's what Magtherion, Kil'jaeden and Shahraz used.
The portal that was initially opened in War at Mount Hyjal could transport the entire Legion through.
The other ones, not so much which is why the Night Elf resistance as well as Malfurion was able to crush through them easie
r.

"Did Alexstrasza die off camera?"

She was supposed to be a part of Chapter 9 but she was cut off unfortunately due to pressure in releasing the campaign on time.
Short answer: yes, she died off camera.


Boss Fights
"Sharaz is really good idea when you fight shivarra and succubuses, but Sharaz herself could be more powerful. At least she could have immolation."
Shahraz is not much of a fighter. She uses espionage, tricks and her forte is her intelligence and spies. She can't stand up to other Legion lieutenants which is why she's trying to outsmart them.

"Kazzak is also good with Demons swarming you, but Kazzak himself didn’t seem to use any abilities."
Same reason for Alexstrasza. There's a possibility in the future though, no promises.

"Tyrande was just standing and fireing searing arrows at you. She is supposed to be one of the three most powerful Night Elves alive(beside Malfurion and Illidan). Beside the owls some archers/huntresses/sentries should also join the fight. Also she should be running around and using some more “starfalling abilities”.
She was holding back especially after locking down some of Malfurion's powers. Her love is what killed her.

"Medivh. I lloved the Azshara part. But Medivh not really. He multiplies and uses abilities, so you know which one is real. Also his abilities are kinda lame for the last guardian. I don’t know, maybe look at Heroes of the Storm for inspiration."

"Ysera’s fight is kinda boring. It comes down to destroying portals. She only uses sleep and stun. She should be the most powerful druid ever. You already have a dozen druid abilities. Also maybe make green wheps/drakes/dragons just appear without portals, so you have to fight them without the portals. I’m not really a fan of destroying gems.

She would look much better with her own WoW model. Also she says her goddess is Elune, she is actually called Eonar."

Turnro is making all of these boss fights on his own, granted with some input here and there.
We had great ideas for pretty much every fight but sadly we had to cut some of these short due to time, effort, etc.
Future updates may perfect and cover up some of these boss fights weaknesses but we'll have to see.
Malfurion's Quest Sentinel storyline has its own boss fights that differ from the Highborne path so having everything working as it should with only 1 man working is quite a challenge.

Great Review though and we're very grateful that you played and enjoyed the campaign.
We're looking forward to any future input you have to give us!
