Submitted by Serbianbeast
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

To everyone testing this map!

This map is still in its beta phase, and I need your help!
Everytime you finish this map with your friends (a party greater than 3),
I need you to type “-dmg”, open the Multiboard and send me a PM or e-mail (serbianbeasthotmail.com) with the data you see there.
It needs to contain Class, Level, Build (Str/Agi/Int) and % damage done.

Example
1. DK Level 10 Str 25%
2. ES Level 9 Agi 22%
3. CR Level 8 Int 20%
4. CH Level 7 Str 18%
5. ES Level 5 Str 15%

This will help me to balance the classes!

Thanks in advance,
Serbianbeast

    Where can I find all of your other maps even if they are not good? I also remember playing The Growling Winds some time ago. Have you stopped developing it? And I would like to get it's latest version.

    This map is interesting but it need heavy balance i took paladin holy that only heal 200-300 on level 9 and all heroes have 1200 hp in that moment that is rly sad on first level paladin has 150 mana only and spells has 120 mana requirement and other 80 enough for one!More more items!And how do you think player can get all talents without loading and saving 20 times when from one play player can get only one talent!

    @Djole this is the first of map from a complete saga ... a talk about 100 level heroes and in World of Ancients we can only reach to level 10 ... so 200 - 300 heal is no too bad, is a 1/4 of heroes lifes :)

    But healers are totally useless. IDk what they can when they get items. At the start he heals 1 time for small amount of hp, mb he will heal 5 times the same amount later :) On the other hand, healer in tanking spec can heal himself efficiently enough and his spells cost nothing compare to healer spec. This is not the important thing of course. Serbianbeast's motivation for continue as well as making the map need more time to be completed by players are more important for me.
    updated. I was wrong. It is very entertaining to play healer as he is now.

    Hello people. I'm really, really sorry it took me sooo long to answer to anything that is written here... So, here's the thing:
    I've started working on OM, as many of you already know, and I've got to as far as completing all but last 3 bosses (frankly, I was out of ideas for fights and I wanted to make those encounters totally epic), and then exams came, again... Then came the full time job which I'm at parallel with my college so I've got no time to sleep and eat properly, not to mention modding or playing games of any sort... So, here's the thing, I'd really love to finish this map, at least OM and that PvP arena (which will be tremendously imbalanced, but oh well...) and it'll take me about a 100 hours to do so (compared to about 2000 spent in the series, that's not really much)... I appreciate you people who keep supporting me and keeping this WoA thing alive, really, there are simply no words to describe how grateful I am, really makes me feel as I've accomplished something. I love that there are people who appreciate my work and still play this map. Actually, I owe you one, and I guarantee, for only God knows which time, you that I'll finish this sooner or later, but not at the moment due to overwhelming time schedule...

    Now back on topic: Healers are NOT weak. I agree, they are week on first couple of levels due to mana problems, but as soon as you get your first talent, you'll have just enough mana to start doing your job properly and as the game goes on (especially in heroic) you'll be healing for some greater amounts as well as dealing some really good damage... As a matter of fact, the thing in OM is that healing classes are brutally overpowered because most of them rely on the length of battle and encounters... For example Death DK can heal for really good amount of damage when he gets his stacks up on Death Strike, and in OM those heals reach about 1000 hit points + about 3k Death Strikes by the time you get to last boss... And let me remind you that you get those every 3 seconds. Just wow. And Cleric? Healing cleric had about most damage done 80% of the time we played him in testing OM, without even mentioning the 2k heals and 1.6k AOE and flash heals (considered that tanks have about 6-7k hp by the end of OM that's a lot...). And Earthshaker with his level 10 healing spell? He does about 2k HPS (heal per second)... Constantly. So, healers? NP :) You'll see just how "useless" they are when it comes to PvP :) Right now frost DK, healer cleric, flame ES and just about any Champion are pretty strong PvPers, while the others shine in PvE.

    Btw, when I get some free time I'll post here where and how we'll interact so we could come up with last 3 boss fights as a real community, together. :)

    That's it for now, thank you all for support and Happy New Year everybody! ^^

    I've dreamed with the World of Ancient continued saga called "Ogre Maul" ... fighting new mobs and facing dangerous new Bosses. Rising Talents and loting strong artifacts, becoming one of the most renamed in this universe!!!

    I just played this map with 3 other people. The first unit was 4 shotting us and we died about 10 times trying to kill this one unit. When we got to the second part, the guy that hit the drum was easy to kill but then the two that came out caused everyone to quit because it was impossible for us to win.

    1/5.

    Hahahaha what a noobs!! xD
    Lol try again, but this time do a new strategy ...
    Ex:
    1- Kill the gong dude before hi make the calling. Remember you are level 1 and have no gear for the moment so the trolls in the zone are more stronger than you.
    2- If the gong dude call the others, then run back to the portal and fight there, if you die then will rise near them before they heal his wounds ... the final result will be your team as winners.
    3- When you get level 5 or gain more gears will see that trolls will become more easy to defeat.
    4- Try to fight Bosses. They are the best of the best in the game!!!

    P.S: Sorry, my english is poor.
