This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This map offers 18 different hero classes, lots of quests, tons of items, a great story, and loads of fun gameplay.

- Formally known as "Swamp Open RPG Beta 1.8."
- Seeing as this map has gone threw severe changes, I decided to rename it. This version only offers play of up to Tier 2 Heroes and offers about a third of the overall map gameplay. Don't let the tag Alpha fool you, this map still offers hours worth of gameplay.
- So then please send all comments, questions, suggestions, bugs, to Zero0018@hotmail.com.

    The Ghost got "pestilence" ability (im from austria, hope its called so in english) and if you fight against him, you cant play on because it deals 100 dmg per second and never ends, you should fix that

    This is one of the best maps I've played.

    Bug list:
    Thief quest in the eastern zone (from the starting area) to open the door and get something out of a chest could not be completed. When I went to the door with the lockpick it said I had someone elses lockpick and should try to find mind (there was no other thief in the game).

    Duel Bug: Host lost against player #2 and respawned correctly but player #2 could not get out of the duel area. To fix it, the host went in the duel area and killed him from above. He then respawned normally but both players were now hostile to each other in the normal world. In order to fix this we tried to duel again, which eventually worked if the host win.
    This however led us to be unable to use the town teleport (from your pet).
    Also, using the town portal to the second town teleported me to a town to the very east. Walking to the wall furthest to the east there crashed the game.

    Infinite gloves bug: You can equip an infinite amount of gloves (which becomes too good with 25% attack speed on each).

    Final ranger quest to kill the demon. Using the ultimate ability here (mirror image) causes the images to turn on yourself. Perhaps intended but it becomes very annoying as its impossible to know about it, especially couple with the bug that these quest mobs can level. So if you fail a couple of times, it becomes virtually impossible to finish the quest and you are stuck as rank one forever.

    Some feedback:
    Hints on the herb quest. The quest to find the herbs actually forces you to revisit old zones, a hint about that would be much appreciated.

    The taming boss, took quite a while to figure out as you need to get him soo low, some hints here would be appreciated.

    Sea Witch abilites are lackluster to say the least. The two passive abilities are good but the two active ones are completely useless save for the first level or so. The aimed shot and multishot doesn't scale with gear at all. So you do approximately 1000 damage per second just auto attacking but if you active aimed shot your damage per second is decreased to 100, hence it will never be used. The same thing goes for multishot.

    The Ranger and its follow ups as well as the thief does a lot of damage against caster, medium damage against ranged but almost no damage against melee. It's a great concept but the very low damage against melee feels a bit excessive at times.

    A pretty good RPG map with swamp terrain. Nothing special or new but a good standard map.

    Feature or Flaw?

    Hey Zero, first of all I just wanted to say great map!

    I don't know if this is a "flaw" or a "feature", but after killing several hours playing Swamp Open RPG 1.8 (I now have Swamp of Despair 1.4) I noticed one potential "bug".

    I maxed out a druid, then switched to and maxed Necromancer. I didn't find Dark Knight Trainer (or any Necro quests), so I decided to switch classes. I noticed that when I change my class again, I retain any pets I already had. Running around as a level 1 Sorcerer with two full squads of skeletons (lvl 5), Mischa, and 5 bugs (lvl 5) is kinda amusing.

    Has this already been noticed/addressed? Do you think it might be an issue?

    ~Brew

    If you can't see it the map in wc3, rename it to something smaller in title.

    The map lets me download it. Prob cause I hosted it. Patch 1.24 broke the map and I don't know how to fix it. I wanted to finish this too, it's really a damn shame I've lost 5 years of my life on a game I could never finish and have now nothing to show for...

    If anyone would like to take over the map be my guest.

    It's attached to the post. Since I created the map in WEU I removed all the stuff related to it. It now loads in the regular editor alot of the triggers/functions are broken. Also map only loads prio 1.24.
