[​IMG]
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.


[​IMG]
- Campaign in the style of Blizzard's campaigns.
- 12 chapters, 6 interludes, 1 epilogue and 1 cinematic.
- A new revamped blood elf techtree, based on the human techtree, but with new units and abilities.
- A storyline with its roots in WoW: The Burning Crusade, along with some unique new stories.
- Lots of custom models, skins, icons, voice sets and music.


[​IMG]
A short story that serves as a prelude to the story of Rise of the Blood Elves.
It depicts the motivations and history of Alessandra Katryne, one of the main characters.
Sorrowfall

[​IMG] Kael'thas Sunstrider - Lord of the Blood Elves. All Kael'thas wishes is the best for his people,
and he is willing to make questionable some decisions to ensure this future.

disappointment and sorrow, and she will fight to ensure the best for her people.

Lor'themar wants to ensure a promising future for his people, but is not willing to cross certain lines.
[​IMG] Aewynne Maysong - Ranger-General of the Blood Elves. Aewynne is a good-willed and noble
leader, who cares about her home more than anything else.
[​IMG] Lady Liadrin - The Blood Knight Matriarch, Lady Liadrin is fiercely loyal to Kael'thas,
but values justice above all. Once the situation changes, Liadrin is not above fighting
with people she once called enemies.
[​IMG] Illidan Stormrage - Lord of Outland. After his defeat at Icecrown, Illidan became
reclusive, focusing on some unknown future.
[​IMG] Dar'Khan Drathir - In the Scourge invasion of Quel'Thalas, Dar'Khan betrayed his people,
ensuring Quel'Thalas' destruction. Now, he rules over the undead of Quel'Thalas, viciously
hunting all remaining elves.
[​IMG] Sylvanas Windrunner - The Banshee Queen, ruler of the Forsaken, a powerful undead faction.
In life, Sylvanas was the ranger-general of Silvermoon and bravely defended her home against
the Undead Scourge in the Third War. She continues the same battle in undeath.

and fiercely loyal to Illidan, ready to give her life for him at any moment.

    On the main post, you'll see a prelude story to RotBE. It's a story about Alessandra that will explain this.

    WHATTT?????? :ogre_rage::ogre_rage::ogre_rage::ogre_rage::ogre_rage::ogre_rage::ogre_rage:

    Third level?? Are you even joking? The ones you're supposed not to kill more than 50 blood elves?
    By all standards that level is a cakewalk in the park.
    Maybe you mean the 5th level with you being outnumbered 1 to 3 and had to defend your ass for 30 minutes? Well that was easy too!

    so I just downloaded this, and it crashes when I click on a playable blood elf unit. I'm guessing this is just a mac issue?

    You first need to go north to the gate where you will have a cinematic and then the invisible walls will disappear.

    hi, it is really a nice campaign,i can feel a brand new experience differen between with The curse of Forsaken ,but it is pity for there have some bug in some chapter.

    hope that you can understand what i want to say because my english really broken.

    1-In chapter 3,Some time Liadrin will not move when she was attacked and did not fight back.

    2-In chapter 4,the worker of green undead will never collect the gold mine or build any building even though they just beside the gold mine.this problem also cause the green undead unable to train any unit.

    3-In chapter 6,after the cinimatic of the Forsaken forces landed,the battleship which player purchased will "blink" to the land and most of them were not be able to move anymore.(by the way ,the battleship is a nice cannon tower anyway if the bug happen so dun give up lol)

    that`s all ,some unpredictable bug can`t change this campaign in the category of nice campaign

    and i have the screenshot to show what is really happen,if nesesary please contact me for it.

    thank you,keep it up to make more good campaign for all of the war3 lover

    Thanks, glad you liked it. And yeah, the bugs you listed, they're the unpredictable bugs that sometimes tend to happen, especially the AI sometimes tends to bug, so there's really not much I can do about that.

    A well made BlizzEnt styled campaign!

    Just a few things to think about:

    -some maps need a little more terrain work (the Tempest Keep one, especially)

    chap1:
    -some of Kael's spells were modified but Vashj's weren't. They also both start with level 1. They were lvl 10 when TFT ended
    -dragon cinematic: enemy rider is still selected and parasite Murlocs do not stop moving

    chap2:
    -Vashj is surprised to find out that not all Fel Orcs are their enemies. Well, the end of first chapter proved that...
    -through where the heck did Bladefist come with that Orc Transport? That water spot is practically surrounded by cliffs
    -I don't think there was any need to change the look of buildings that have the same role as in Warcraft III
    -there's an error with the UI that the last number (7) of possible units or researches to be bought is vertically cut
    -is the Goblin supposed to give the Optional Quest without either any of the player's naga or blood elf units coming across him?
    -once the player gets the notice that the Fireblade Clan turned to the rebel side, there is no making them allies again? Walking on their circles seems not to work
    -I suggest making it possible to transfer resources (at least wood) from the elves to the naga. It's not utmost necessary (naga can build a base in the northeast if need be) but speeds up the level completion process
    -you might think they've learned from their mistakes of last time so to build towers near the water areas too
    -why would the towers explode after their power being cut off?
    -the orange base does not lead any attacks on the citadel
    -Magtheridon was killed in TFT. Having him being forgiven by Illidan makes the latter stupid especially when they didn't know why the orcs were rebelling

    chap3:
    -went north to destroy the first Power Generator and all enemy units that were attacking my troops disappeared after it was destroyed. Afterwards a cinematic scene started and Liadrin came in. Next, the yellow troops started moving around the map and they did not attack purple guarding units and neither did the yellow attack the purple ones. They only battle themselves where their bases are
    -trained purple troops do not count as elves for the Optional Quest. This quest is useless from a logical point of view
    -I'm not sure how the Magistrix and the General survived in the Tempest Keep while Kael'thas was helping Illidan in Northrend with most of the elven force
    -towers in the keep main room are not enemy
    -how did Liadrin get so fast from the M'uru (after being defeated) to tell Kael what the rebels were doing?
    -Kael is not a smart strategist. He didn't come in person until the end. It was quite obvious where the "men" (there were women there too) went as Alessandra and the prince had a discussion about Quel'thalas not long before the rebellion

    chap4:
    -the Crypt Fiend said: "for the spider kingdom!" He/it is in no position to say that for its master is no nerubian
    -why would the enemy (Khan) be so idiotic to tell you that player's allies are in the area?
    -it's not mentioned why Lor'Themar remained or was left behind in Quel'thalas' lands

    chap5:
    -Lor'Themar was the regent lord? It looked more like he was left behind
    -how did they know their exact location where to teleport to?
    -how did Dar'Khan escape the previous level?
    -green AI stops attacking after the south Wretched base is destroyed but will attack after the green base is attacked

    chap6:
    -REALLY??? Dar'Khan again? Feels like a cartoon...
    -there's a cave in the northeast through which the purple undead come. The elves can't use it to get to the undead
    -I destroyed the green base before the second main quest appeared and I got an update of that quest but it still doesn't show in the quest log as discovered
    -my ships were on the orange base's south coast. After it was destroyed and after the cinematic scene ended (where Sylvanas' forces set sail), my ships were teleported near the my shipyards. Thing is, one of the ships was put into the ground/soil not able to reach water space

    chap7:
    -some of the riddles don't even have a logical answer
    -linearity. Some spaces have path blockers that are removed only after the first door cinematic scene
    -the crystal quest update message does not appear in the quest log too
    -how did Khan get pass the door if in order to open it those crystals were needed?
    -not really much battle in this level. No bosses, nothing special apart from those riddles and say the short timed roof crumble place (which was too fast to finish which killed the suspense)

    chap8:
    -the enemy attacks fast and quite strong, especially the yellow undead. The last upgrade of the main building is quite needed from the start

    interlude:
    -some of the undead units do not embark (namely a Dreadguard and some other units)

    chap9:
    -it is not told if Illidan approved or not, or at least knew of Kael's departure to Quel'thalas
    -as if Kael was that stupid to be afraid of Kil'jaeden that didn't even succeed killing Illidan with his demon hordes

    interlude:
    -weren't the only Draenei left on Outland the Broken?

    chap10:
    -interesting. I thought maybe Kael would fool Illidan into striking the rebelling elves by his side and then show his true colours. How did Illidan find out about Kael and 'jaeden anyway?
    -the yellow AI has an Altar of Blood, actually two. Don't tell me it's just for the techtree
    -Illidan was absent all the time. I thought he'd come to deal with the matter personally...

    chap11:
    -suddenly introduced (never seen or heard of before in this campaign) characters (Kalecgos and that girl)
    -just outside of the keep there's an invisible unit that casts Mana Burn on my heroes (Kalecgos and Anveena)
    -a timed level to complete a quest and there's not even a Blacksmith built...
    -love between a male dragon and a said woman sun energy? Meh...
    -oh yes and how did Kael reemerge as not a ghost (as Alessandra)? Kil'jaeden wasn't there to "revive" him

    interlude:
    -what the heck is Illidan's say in all of these? I understand he was not supposed to be a main character but seriously even Vashj and Kargath were more implicated in the whole thing

    finale:
    -south, the mine is overrun by many elven Workers
    -a golem says: "Kael'thas --error--..." Are golems in Warcraft or at least the blood elf ones supposed to be something other than magical? It feels futuristic to have them have processors of any type
    -please, I'm a slow reader especially when trying to see the beauty of the cinematic scenes. Decrease the text change speed
    -again, characters introduced like they were part of the story the whole time but never made an appearance (not even in text) until this moment: Rommath. Aethas and Vereesa are understandable, as they were in the Kirin Tor/Dalaran, not really a part of the present story

    Even with those minor but sometimes annoying facts, I have enjoyed the campaign to an ultimatum.
    I've also basked in the awesomeness of the visuals of the Quel'thalas dungeons and Silvermoon fortress levels.

    This campaign is highly recommended to all who have played and experienced the original Warcraft III story.

    Here is some of my thought about your comment.

    + it's true, Vashj and Kael are lvl 10 at the end of TFT, i don't really understand why they go back to level 1 either but may that's because he want you to level them up again to have some thrill but seriously Tyrande, Malfurion, Illidan, Kel'thuzad and Arthas are lvl 10 at the beginning of TFT campaign.

    + Magtheridon isn't killed in TFT, i clearly see him alive in the cutscene. The lore also mention that he is imprisoned by Illidan and his force and his blood is used to make more Fel Orcs.

    + The Crypt Fiends quote is a War 3 mechanism. While they are technically traitors of the former Nerubian Empire, Azjol-Nerub; it can be interpret like this. The Nerubian Empire is destroyed by the Scourge and the slain Nerubian Warriors are raised as Crypt Fiends and Crypt Lords. We can say that the "new spider kingdom" is now part of the Scourge and made of Crypt Fiends and Crypt Lords so in a sense they are correct.

    + Kil'jaeden is Illidan's master so Kael is afraid of him is understandable. Kael and his Blood Elves are also magic addicted beings, they require magic to survive and apparently they had already pledged their lives to whatever side that can provide them more magic (TFT). Well, in a different way of speaking, they are adoptable pets and no pet is in position to make any funny statement about other mighty beings.

    + The Fel Reaver a Burning Legion's construction have these quotes
    "Systems... shutting... d-o-w-n..."
    "System failure in five, f-o-u-r..."

    in chapter 11, when you destroy the orange base, the draenei start build theirs... but they have a very little piece of grass to build.. so they are trapped back the buildings.. this thing happened in all the versions that i played...

    Yes it happens so i suggest to destroy the building ,they don't need too many buildings,and i let the blood elves a little at this plce until they placed theyre building into other place,also i have to reminder they are battling inside the city
    where the space is lower for buildings,is just my eyes how i saw.

    Somehow, I completely forgot to respond to this. I'll get to it now, even though I'm a bit too late, haha.

    I'm glad you liked them campaign. It definitely has its issues, especially in the story department. It's nothing too major, but it could definitely use some brushing up.

    Thanks!
