Characters
[​IMG] He Xiaoshu: The main character of the campaign. Even though she had an unhappy childhood, she relied on her optimism and hard work to eventually became the deputy president of Dalaran. She is a pacifist who draws a clear line between what she likes and doesn't like, and knows right from wrong. She is also a competent leader. This time, however, she and her allies will face an unprecedented crisis...
[​IMG] Thrall: The warchief of the horde, he is always thinking about his people's future, and even makes sacrifices for them. He was saved by He Xiaoshu during an outing. He realizes that in order to give his people lasting peace, sacrifices must be made--- allying himself with the foreign blood elves.
[​IMG] Lor'themar Theron: Once a nameless rogue swordsman, he was able to become a battle mage of Dalaran after the Dalaran president took a liking to him. As such, he is often blindly loyal to the president and has no views of his own. After witnessing the president's betrayal, he realizes who is the true leader of Dalaran.
[​IMG] Maiev: She is a consistently arrogant avenger. She once used her allies to achieve her revenge without scruples, leading to everyone becoming alienated from her in the end. With new allies this time, will she treat them as she did her old allies? Valkyire said that her only goal in life was revenge. What meaning will her life hold once her revenge is accomplished?
[​IMG] Akama: Once a general of the draenei, after being afflicted by a demonic curse and being forced to become the demons' slave, he and his followers declared themselves The Broken. After being persuaded by He Xiaoshu, his lost heart finally found a shore to stop at. He leads his forces to help He Xiaoshu break out of prison and joins her ranks.
[​IMG]
Yrel: She is the commander of the draenei. After witnessing the sacrifice her mentor A'dal made, she understands she is the last guardian of the light. She follows He Xiaoshu to the black citadel with the intent of making the demons pay in blood.

Well no, the model doesn't use a crossbow either, they just move their arm like they're throwing things. Admittedly, "Fel Thrower" isn't much of a name either. General: Worgen Prophet's Hex and Devour Magic should switch positions. Flying Machines...

As in, you've been given control of all four races and techtrees throughout the campaign, which one would you like to finish it with? Update (finished it): I gotta say, I don't get the title. I thought it might be referring to the fel orcs, but the...

    Maps unbalance.....
    AI drunk sometimes move sometimes stop and never sent allies to war.....
    Yea agree should remove quote hunt illidian... It is awkward to see a friend being hunt?


    Bug found 1
    You can capture Gul'dan instead Grom to complete first part main quest

    Grom will be purify but you still can see the sealed gem floating on your hero which is Guldan who was captured not Grom
    Captured Gul'dan will be stuck forever (sealed) until your hero die to release it after Grom became allies

    PS: I use cheat to do this to go Guldan base...

    I was enjoying the campaign thus far but I can tell these maps are going to have the same issue the prior campaign had, wherein the enemy is going to start to flood your base relentlessly, and while I can see that being a way of encouraging you to hurry up and finish the map, it's really awful getting thirty minutes into a game only to have to restart because four enemy bases are smashing big armies into you and rallying units from their production facilities straight to your base. I'm really hoping it's a bug of some sort with the recent patch because the slow death you don't see coming that is the unending wave of enemies is simply atrociously bad. It's enough that I'd honestly recommend people not play these maps until it's remedied, it's that bad. If you want the player to complete an objective quickly, give the a timer before the mission fails so they'll understand.

    It's a real shame too because these maps have a lot of effort put into them, that much is clear, and if wasn't for this problem they'd be very good, but this one issue makes them nigh unplayable. On Chapter 3: Comprehensive Counter-Attack, the four enemy bases attacked me with over 800 units over 30 minutes before I finally decided to give up.

    Indeed, the three campaigns need proper difficulty options.

    Map description changed so that all the map descriptions are the same / easier to copy paste the map descriptions from each map to others.

    1) The first map with the trolls was a good introduction mission. The end troll boss was extremely dangerous on insane difficulty, I almost needed to restart.

    2) The second map was one of the best missions. I really enjoyed have worgen ally AI. I have a concern about this mission though: it is very dependent on luck. If the purple lich base attacks the worgen from the top left side, the worgen AI can easily beat it on insane difficulty. But, if they attack from the right side (with the bridge), the worgen is 100% going to die or be weakened to a point where it will soon die. This is because the bridge provides a choke point where the worgen melee units get stuck. They cannot attack the meat wagons/necromancers at the back, and slowly the entire army dies because of the undead's range attacks. So, insane difficulty for me depended on luck, since if the worgen base was dying, I could not push/attack the left side of the map.

    3) I loved the third mission also. The blue ally AI was really powerful, and I liked the design of the mission with the Red undead base on the cliff. Was a great RTS mission.

    4) I also really enjoyed the 4th mission (in outland). It was 3v2, the first time were my team had more bases than the enemy! The orc allies were really powerful, and I enjoyed having 2 allies to help me attack the purple fel orc base. I do not understand why the 2 orc heroes were killed at the end of the mission, but He Xiaoshu and the others were put in prison?

    5) The prison escape mission was fine. The shadow boss was incredibly hard to fight, it just wiped out my entire army with his spell(s).

    6) The mission against the mind controlled Dalaran forces was really good, but the Succubus Hero was too strong in my opinion on insane, and it kept charming my units, so if I did not succeed the first time, it would become extremely difficult to kill it in future attacks. The Air Ship unit is very overpowered.

    7) I do not have much to say about the mission where you defend the Draenei city, except that it is almost impossible to know that there is a circle of power for the riddle in the east. At least for the Lonely Nightstar mission, it was close to the World Tree, so I could see it at the beginning. But in this one, if people do not explore the map, then they will never know it exists. It would be easier if there was a hint or something about it.

    8) The RTS mission where you meet with the Dalaran base was also a lot of fun. The enemy heroes in my opinion are too strong, especially the banshee hero with mana burn. The dragon hero is also overpowered, since it can be surrounded by your ally's army and just never die, because only range units can hit it and it uses lie drain. The red ally AI was surrounding the dragon hero for 20 minutes, until I finally came to help them with it.

    9) Two things about the mission where you save Grom. A) Without a warning about invulnerable bases, some people will use 1 hour + preparing to attack the fel orc bases, but only then realize the bases are invulnerable until you complete the first quest. B) It would be easier if the Red ally AI helps you attack after you save grom. I enjoyed the mission.

    10) I liked the final RTS mission, but I think the optional quest is not "optional" on insane, since without those magic damage phoenixes, it is impossible to kill the demon units with the heavy armour that flood your base.

    Overall, I loved how many custom races you could play it in the second campaign by Flower Fairy. Many diverse races. I also loved the strong ally AI (I know I mentioned it before in Lonely Nightstar, but I repeat again because this is a very good part of the RTS missions. If you ask people what missions they enjoy the most of the normal blizzard campaigns, they will normally say ROC ORC 3, ROC ORC 8, and ROC NE 8. Why? Because this missions all have ally AI for the RTS missions. People love ally AI in RTS missions, and I am not an exception.)

    I also enjoy how Flower Fairy foreshadowed the next campaign with the vision He Xiaoshu has at the end of this campaign (regarding the undead). I also liked the character of He Xiaoshu a lot, it had good character development (though characters that are too "good" often have difficulty becoming realistic, since in reality it is hard for us to emphasize with someone who just does good things all the time.)

    Yeah a pity He Xiaoshu kept that prophecy to herself and not tell anyone about it. They would at least be better prepared.

    Yeah, while I can like some 'good' characters they mostly have some flaws that make them actual people. 'I am a hero and I help people because of that' is kind of a cliche motivation that is kind of dull.
    That is why I am more inclined to evil characters, since their motivations vary. Some want to rule the world for power, others to create a hell on Earth for their amusement, others suffered and now want revenge, others want to create an utopia, etc... Villains have all types of reason to be what they are, while most heroes are heroes because they are 'good people'

    I don't get it in any mission where we have a base, the enemy sends endless waves of units to attack. I play on 1.31, it should be like this or its a patch fault ? Same situation with the first campaing of this series.
    @Edit looks like on 1.26 game works better and there are some times between the waves of the enemies..

    My only complaint here is that the text comes and goes way too fast in cinematics. I couldn't even keep up with the final note from the author.
