This is an excellent book featuring original art from all of the warcraft games including Warcraft3. I'm studying to become a character designer for games/movies and I love this book as a reference and ispiration for various weapons and clothing/armor pieces as well as characters. The book gave me a glimpse at the production proccess of the games. This book will also be good if you're into drawing/illustrating since it features the original works of the designers of the games before they've became the final product. Would probably also make a nice collection piece for anyone who is interested in the warcraft series, but I'm not sure about that.

I got a copy of this many years ago, but it sadly fell apart. I like this art book way more than the recent ones because it has significantly more illustrations done in pencil/pen as opposed to digital drawings - and I feel like it has more emphasis on characters/units than environments, which is a big plus for me as well.

As someone with all the World of Warcraft Collector's Editions I can say this lives up to all of Blizzard's art books. It is an interesting look into the production of one of the largest franchises in gaming.

My only wish would be that it was hardcover like the others.
