Posted by on

After a long time, Warcraft III Extended Edition is getting an update - and a pretty big one. The main changes in version 1.0 are a new system for picking factions, some new content and 2 new maps. It also includes balance changes and bugfixes.

Faction Picking

  • At game start, each player choses a faction from the list of factions. The factions in the list depend on the chosen vanilla faction.
  • Possible choices are:
    • Human:
      • Alliance - the vanilla Human faction.
      • High Elves - a faction centered around the High Elves of Quel'Thalas.
    • Orc:
      • Thrall's Horde - the vanilla Orc faction.
      • Fel & Dark Horde - a mix of units and heroes from the Fel Horde in Outland and Rend Blackhand's Dark Horde.
    • Undead:
      • Scourge - the vanilla Undead faction.
      • Forsaken - Sylvanas Windrunner's Forsaken, inspiration taken from The Frozen Throne's Undead campaign and WoW storyline.
    • Night Elf:
      • Sentinels - the vanilla Night Elf faction.
      • Watchers - similar to Sentinels, but with a greater focus on Huntresses and melee combat.
      • Ilidan's Naga - a faction inspired by the Naga faction from The Frozen Throne's Human campaign.
