The expansion adds a new hero to each side- the Shadow Hunter for the Orcs, Blood Mage for the Humans, Crypt Lord for the Undead, and Warden for the Night Elves. The Shadow Hunter is probably the most notable addition here, since previously Orcs had no good way to heal their units early in the game. The Warden is also a good Night Elf pick if you want to try assassinating someone else's hero. Additionally, you can hire mercenary heroes at a Tavern. These are just as good as the ones you get normally, save that they don't take any time to train. They include the Naga Sea Witch, Pandaren Brewmaster, Beastmaster, Dark Ranger, and Pit Lord.
New units and upgrades are also added for each side. Some of the old units, including the Ballista and Catapult, have been changed and renamed. The Orc units are the Batrider (anti-air flyer) and Spirit Walker (Tauren support caster). Upgrades include the Troll Berserker- a throwback to Warcraft 2 and Reinforced Defenses, which makes defensive buildings tougher. The Humans get the Spell Breaker (a caster-killer) and Dragonhawk Rider (another anti-air unit) as well the Arcane Tower- which could save you from a one-hero rush. Upgrades include Barrage and Flak Cannons, which make Siege Tanks and Flying Machines into very serious anti-air units.
The Undead receive the Obsidian Statue, which can either heal nearby enemies or restore their mana. It can also be turned into the Destroyer, a deadly magic-immune air unit. The Nerubian Tower is also added, which does less damage than Spirit Towers but slows enemies.Read more ›
Each race gets a new hero added to the ranks, as well as several new units. These new units enhance the races with great new abilities. Aside from these new units, there are also new items to be found in the game, as well as a few joke items that refer to other Blizzard classics, like Diablo II. New Creeps are also roaming around the game, waiting to be killed by your heroes!
The story continues, and this time it is explained from different perspectives. In fact, the Alliance campaign and the Dark Elf campaigns are like playing 2 more completely new races, which you will understand once you start playing. There are also a few hidden features, such as secret levels and other easter eggs that you will have to look hard to find. Blizzard definitely put alot of time into making a quality product. There is even a bonus downloadable Orc campaign. There are only 2 new cinematics, but most of the story is explained through good in-game cutscenes, with some excellent voice acting.
Orc fans will be sorely disappointed, as they are flat-out ignored in this expansion. The Orcs have absolutely no influence or bearing on the story at all, nor are they ever mentioned once in any campaign. The bonus campaign 'The Founding of Durotar', which details their settling and adjustment into their new lands in Kalimdor, is only one chapter with many, many sub-missions. Blizzard promises that they will release more chapters to the campaign for download in coming weeks, though it is not clear how many chapters there will be, or how long the wait will be between chapters.Read more ›
