In a daring campaign against the Scourge in Northrend, Illidan faced off against the death
knight Arthas in an attempt to destroy the Frozen Throne. However, Arthas defeated Illidan and left him
wounded in the snow, allowing Illidan to witness the creation of the new Lich King.

Kael'thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj, realising their defeat, brought Illidan with them as they fled back to
Outland. Seeing their master's ugly wounds, they decide to bring him back to the Hellfire Citadel so that
he may recover... but, unbeknownst to them, Outland was in a state of a minor civil war.

Soon after that, tensions rise in the blood elven society as the Grand Magistrix Alessandra Katryne
proposes a dangerous idea: reclamation of their homeland, Quel'Thalas.

Excelent mission. Same as with sylvanas campaing and her scourge. few bugs not very important.
Forme some mission was very hard. especially war of silvermoon. its looks more like tower defense :D.
8.5/10

P.S. I hope you will do some custom campaing for Warcraft 3 Reforged as well after release :)

I would just like to say that, considering that replacing Aewynne with Halduron in future versions has been discussed a few times, I find it hilarious that the one image up there that's broken... is Aewynne's Icon.

Oof the powers that be are trying to send me a message... though I have been thinking recently on this topic. I don't think I will ever replace Aewynne and Alessandra, which means Halduron and Rommath won't make it into the campaign as they should. I'm honestly just too fond of these two characters, and whereas Phaelynne was literally just female Putress, but dumber, I think these two add a bit more to the campaign than Rommath or Halduron could.

EDIT: Though I would be open to adding Halduron and Rommath in some other smaller capacity, if possible. Rommath does appear at the end of the campaign. I'm not sure where I could put Halduron, though, unless I murder Aewynne too?

Glad you liked it! What bugs did you encounter?

Can't promise anything to do with Reforged, we'll see when it comes out.

Yeah I've started playing around with it again, to be honest I kinda ignored Warcraft 3 for months, the original idea I had for v3.1 was literally just some polish and gameplay updates, which I... didn't really care for, even if it would be a good change. So I'm kinda working on finalizing an idea of what an update for RotBE is gonna look like. It's gonna be bigger than what I originally intended, but not really anything too massive. I spoke some time ago that I wanted to do v4.0 and bring RotBE closer to canon, fix some really glaring issues and such, but since I don't really want to tear the campaign apart to that scale I think this idea is a compromise between that and what the current version of RotBE is. So it might be more of a v3.5?

EDIT: I just realised it was March when I talked about it. I thought it was like three months ago. What the fork.

From what I've played, I must admit that the campaign looks awesome. However, I'm experiencing quite an annoying bug, and since this is my first custom campaign download, I'm not too sure if I'm doing something wrong. My game simply doesn't save my progress in the campaign, as I'm still only able to pick the first level from the menu itself. In order to continue my playthrough, I have to complete a mission, start the next mission, then save the game there. I'm running the newest update of WC3 TFT, and from what I can tell I've installed the stuff correctly. I would really appreciate some help with this issue :)

Is the difficulty is varied ? would be nice to make an option to choose difficulty.

Edit: Just completed the campaign, and the difficulty seems to be in the middle. Not hard and not easy. Or it could be that some maps are hard and some are easy. Still, I think the hard maps could be made harder. lol

UPDATE

What's happening with Rise of the Blood Elves v3.1?

Nothing, the answer is nothing. It should have been done months ago, but I just can't bring myself around to it. I'm busy with other non-Warcraft 3 related projects, as well as life, and this update is just kinda low priority. The campaign definitely deserves (and needs, in my opinion) an update, but I'm just gonna go ahead and say it might not happen. Maybe one day I'll get that Warcraft 3 yearning again, eh?

Will you Reforge Rise of the Blood Elves and Curse of the Forsaken?

99% no. Right now it seems to me that Reforged is just a visual update for the game. I was under the impression that the campaigns would be receiving a pretty hefty revamp, but it doesn't seem that way anymore. That was the main reason why I was excited for the game, but if that doesn't happen, I won't be buying it because I don't care for a visual update.

What about creating a new campaign?

Been trying since 2013, not gonna happen.

That is sad to hear. I was looking forward to what you had mentioned, but i do understand. You are busy with life and other matters, so it is no big deal.

I do however have one question. Can you add in the option for Difficulty selection??? easy/normal/hard in and update to the whole campaign??? or is it mission specfic??

Even just adding in that option would be a blessing.

If that's not possible, no big deal. Just hoping.

Good luck with your other projects and life in general.

Yeah its a huge shame they are not revamping the WC3 campaign at all.There were some plot holes that were needed to fixed in my opinion,more lore and details to add etc.Instead all we are getting just a measly visual update and the same game and absolutely nothing more.Damn Blizzard.

I do hope you'll come back to this one day though.Your Blood Elves custom campaign was absolutely amazing.I loved it.I haven't tried the forsaken one yet though,not a fan of that particular faction.

They claim to be updating 8 maps

You can assume these will be
Stratholme
Dalaran
Fall of silvermoon adding quel'danis and anasterian

What other ones? Who knows. Probably Hyjal, A symphony of frost and flame, maybe Magtheridons citidel?

I can definitely recommand that one. If you liked the Blood Elf one, you'll going to love x 10 the Forsaken one. It's a couple of levels above, one of the best custom campaignsout there. And there is a Blood Elf playable chapter/chapters ;)

@tomoraider could you post details for those of us who would like to fix the blood knights model.

I hear the sentrys filepath was changed.
It works in curse of forsaken but not this one on latest classic patch. Its the only glaring issue with the campaign for me atm

Since we dont know when or if RotBE 3.1 will happen. Id be grateful for a quick retard proof explanation for fix

Just done with Curse of Forsaken, and that was amasing adventure, esp. aft Reforge dissapointment. I tried this one wits huge exitment, i am big fun of blood elves lore and design. aaaaand.... i realised that im a filthy casual. Normal mod of this campaign is a bit ( not a bit, actually) too hard for me, is there any half-legal way to reduce a difficuly beside cheating? Especially now, when tomoraider suspend his works on the mod, so no difficulty changer expected any time soon.

I can do stuff like wipe out illidans base in icecrown base and any siege timed missions in blizzard campaign like Hearthglen and Dalaran and this was a rough campaign too.

Your best bet is to tower hard until u can build up a full army that doesnt get worn down defending then strike hard while your towers keep your base up while u wipe out opposition.

The orc mission i fely like this
The golem mission i felt like this
The scarlet balnazzar mission felt like this.
And bt felt like this.

You gotta turtle up pmuch. For BT i turtled while i got the bt keys so the ranger and akama could join kael then i cleared so the legion bases cpuld could teleport in then just starting wiping out the map.

Hope that helps.

Turtle down and build up and replace the tower clusters asap. Its rough but late game with more heroes you wont need to rely on towers then.

How to make Custom Cinematics work in 1.30.4? It works in 1.26 but lack of widescreen support causes very bad quality, I'd like it best in 1.30+ versions.

Hi Tomoraider,

just wanted to thank you for these fun hours of gameplay. Really, a huge thank you for that ! I think your 2 campaigns were as addictive as the ones from Blizzard ! I did them in hardmode, and it was the perfect dosage between fun and challenge (for my small player level)

Saw no bug, excepting some random crash of the game, but I got them from every other campaign I've tried.

You did a really spectacular job here ! Is there a way to send you a tip ? I'd like to send a little something to show my gratitude.

I have been extremely negligent responding on Hive... thank you to everyone who has been posting and answering questions! And thanks to everyone still playing my campaigns and posting your opinions!

Reforged kinda killed my mood for Warcraft 3, and given that I'm busy with some other stuff, I just ended up putting Warcraft 3 aside. I'd like to do some stuff again, but Reforged doesn't have custom campaigns and I don't know what old versions of Warcraft 3 should I even use or not. I don't even know if some of RotBE update things I did in the version just before Reforged came out could even work in an earlier version. Truthfully, I don't really feel like testing all this out. I would prefer if they added custom campaigns again so I can just use that version for everything because it would just simplify everything.

To be completely transparent about that RotBE update I talked about: it is still on my mind. Originally it was intended to be a small update, but then I had some ideas and then some additional ideas and it evolved into something like a v4.0, though not really that big. I got through two maps before Reforged came out... and then I stopped. My favorite thing was the new intro cinematic I made, maybe I'll post a video to show it to you all, I really liked it! I still want to do this update, but I would prefer waiting for Reforged to sort itself out (which it should have already...) before I do anything.

I'm not sure if this will help but there is a site where you can download the 1.30v for the original warcraft 3. Thank you for making two exciting and fun campaigns. I always get excited when I decide to play them

You mean make them with Reforged graphics, that would be nice I guess, but quite frankly I don't know would it even be possible with a large amount of custom resources. I mean there are some custom resources already, but not sure if that's enough.

On the side note, there is another thing. I'm pretty sure that Kael's (and Vashj's) role and behaviour in TBC will be slightly "adjusted" once Shadowlands comes out, so...Not that it matters directly (it's the alternate version), but still....it's the main plot of this Campaign.

Hi tomoraider! I suggest to use the Warcraft 3 v1.29.2 (for Garena) 'edition'. Your campaigns work well, with this version of the game.

I am not really interested in working with an older version of the game. I think it just needlessly complicates things for everyone. When they re-add custom campaigns to Reforged, I'll see what I want to do.

No, I don't want to make anything with Reforged graphics, I just want to work with the most recent patch of the game. As for any lore changes in WoW, I don't care about that. My campaigns don't really follow the lore accurately in any case.

Sorry, I am not sure. I think I've read some where that you can download a PTR of 1.30 versions from battle.net, but I am not 100% sure. Maybe someone else might know.

What about Repo the V.1 the one that ended in Outland with that complicated All in map, just clean some bugs, reupdate some models and call it a day, because at this ritm, Reforged won't sort itself out to very late 2021 or 2022.

This is not meant as self-advertising, but on our barely active WC3 Discord we have a channel providing mega-links to what you are looking for. If you'd have any questions, we can answer them there, it should be mostly selfexplainatory though, and I also describe the simple things in detail. Here's the discord-link, it will expire after 5 uses (minimum), bc I'm not sure how liberal I can be with what could be considered self-advertising, check the channel #wc3-download-links. PM me if the link fails to work for you. See you around =)

Found a small bug in the level "Betrayed By Your Own Kind", when loading the Hero data from "The Siege of Black Temple", only items from Akama will be dropped for Alessandra, Liadrin and Lor'themar to pick up, none of Maiev's things are dropped. I ran out of the Illidan boss fight just to grab that Staff of Silence, only to never get it next level.

I spent near 2 hours on that level because of how crushing the constant swarms were, barely had time to repair my base before the damn Fel Orcs attacked with that cheap Chaos damage, and both the Burning Legion bases were destroyed by the Naga before they had a chance to be built. I barely saved the Night Elves' base, the Tree of Life had about 12-30 HP left after the Nether Dragons zergrushed it.
