Who is responsible for The Warcraft III Strategy Guide?
The Warcraft III Strategy Guide is maintained by the Blizzard Headquarters Web Team: GFraizer (Nebu) - Content,
MHein (Indoflaven), TPark (Warblade!) - Graphics/Layout/HTML, Fans have also been helpful in contributing information.
Major contributors listed on the Credits page.
Where can I send Game Suggestions?
If you have Game Suggestions you must post them to the
Battle.net Forums. We cannot accept suggestions via email.
For more details on this read the Legal FAQ. The web address is not for
game suggestions; it's for web related issues. The purpose of this guide is to explain how the game works, not
to search for feedback on how to improve the game.
When might this guide be updated?
Currently we update it to correct mistakes or announce Tournament news.
Where can I report bugs in Warcraft III or problems with Battle.net?
Report bugs to Blizzard Tech Support.
Where can I ask Questions about Warcraft III?
Answers for individual questions can best be answered by asking on
the Battle.net forums or looking at
the Blizzard Fan Sites.
Some of this guide seems biased towards a particular race?
Blizzard loves all the races equally. But the people who create and work on the strategy guide can only do so based on their
experience and the races they play. So there might be more information on a certain race than another based on
that experience. Someday we hope to have more people that work on our strategy guide so we can offer more complete coverage.
But keep in mind that the guide is free and accept it as much. Most people would charge for such a guide.
This guide is pretty great considering only one person creates the content with minor fan help.
Can you list the bonuses for the weapon, armor, and ranged upgrades?
No because they vary depending on the unit. Each unit has the possibility of receiving a different amount of bonus. To find out
the bonus for each unit consult the individual unit stats for the unit in question.
Ranges in this guide
You may find that the game lists ranges with an extra 0. This is because the game data files store the longer
numbers and sometimes display that way in game. This guide will not be listing those longer numbers at this time.
A unit in the game for example may say a range of 600 while the guide says 60.
The Disease Aura description for the Meat Wagon mentions the Abomination and vice versa.
Yes. It does.
Do you have any plans for a strategy guide for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos?
This guide will apply to Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Some things in this guide may not apply to Warcraft III: The Reign of Chaos.
Sorry but we don't have the resources or time to maintain two separate versions of this guide. Many things will apply to Warcraft III:
The Reign of Chaos. We have found that classic versions of strategy guides are only viewed by a small number of people so we need to
go where the action is.
Can you mark Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne info as "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Only" ?
We have tried that in the past and it hasn't worked out. So no. Sorry. We may do that in a few places in the guide.
Stats on your web site differ from my game. Why?
Make sure you are using the latest version of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. If you're using Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (classic)
the stats will differ.
I've noticed that some of the screenshots show outdated units or interface
The point of the screenshots are to demonstrate strategy. If that still happens we don't update the shots even if they show old
units or interface.
Why do some units have both Spell Immunity and Resistant Skin?
Resistant Skin gives the unit hero magic resistance. It reduces damage dealt by offensive spells and reduces duration
of hostile spells as well as prevents usage of abilities that don't work on creeps of level 6+ (like Aerial Shackles,
Polymorph, Possession, Charm and Doom). Spell immunity makes the unit immune to spells.
Can you list single-player strategies?
Many of the strategies in this guide can be used in single-player. If you want an excellent guide for
single-player you should consider purchasing the Brady guide.
The creators of Mojo StormStout's Strategy guide helped contribute to the Warcraft III Brady guide.
Can you list all the hot keys?
We have found with previous guides that hot key pages are not very popular so there are no plans to do
one at this time. You can find hot key lists on Blizzard
Two Assassins on the Neutral Buildings Page?
Some Mercenaries are listed more than once on the Neutral Buildings page
because they are available in two separate Mercenary Camps. That page isn't a list of all the Mercenaries, it lists what you will find in each Mercenary Camp.
"I've noticed that some Creep Spells are different than they are for the units such as with Endurance and
Unholy Aura." Yes, some Creep Spells may have the same names and icons as spells for regular units but have
totally different functions.
How can I make the Credits page?
Those who ask shall not receive. The Credits page lists those who continue to give valuable corrections and information without
looking for a reward.
Can you create a news archive page?
In the past, we found that players did not utilize our news archive page, so we decided that
it is not a good addition to the webpage.
Can I take the Graphics and Content from this site and use it on my web site?
No. Please link to our site instead. Feel free to take statistical data such as formulae, items, and
stats however. It would be nice and proper if you link to us saying where you got it.
Are there any plans to put the information in this guide into one big downloadable file?
I know you say there are no plans to put the information in this guide into one big downloadable but will you do it?
How do I take screenshots?
Hold down Control and hit the Print Screen button. This button is located to the right of the F12 key on most
keyboards. The screenshot will be placed in the Screenshots directory in the Warcraft III directory as "**.tga." Use
a picture viewer program to view the screenshots, or you can download and register
ACDSee, the image viewer of choice for us.
I am having problems displaying pages with Netscape 4.XX
You should upgrade to the latest version
of Netscape 6.0 and up. Some pages may not display correctly with Netscape 4.
Can I translate your site into another language if no such site exists?
No. Aside from the confusion it might cause our customers, we would have no control over the quality, accuracy
or content of such translated sites. You do not have permission to reproduce this site in other languages.
If you feel you have a screenshot that would help illustrate something in this guide you can submit it to us
and we may use it. Screenshots should be in 800x600x32 or greater resolutions (higher the better), and should
be sent non modified in their original *.tga format. The camera should probably be at the default camera
angle unless the shot is somehow helped by zooming in. It's ok if you zip them up but you don't have to. Send them
Do you have additional information or strategy that would be useful in the Warcraft III Strategy Guide?
Feel free to contribute additional information or strategies to the guide. We may add them if we feel they
would be helpful to the guide and agree. But we will not add everything that is submitted.
Where can I report corrections, spelling, grammar, or problems with the Warcraft III Strategy Guide?
Please note that the Web email address is for Warcraft III Strategy Guide only and that mails
on any other issues related to Warcraft III such as bugs, problems,
should be sent to Blizzard Tech Support.
Emails that do not relate directly to the web site will be deleted so if you want your email to be heard and responded to, send it
to the right place (Blizzard Tech Support).
We are glad to get your help on our guide. But we ask that you follow some rules. This will ensure that our time
is not wasted investigating bogus or wrong reports.
Report errors in Warcraft III Strategy Guide (and Warcraft III Strategy Guide only) here. Again this
address is not for problems with the game, it's for problems with the web site.
Thanks to those of you that read this completely and follow our rules and
F.A.Q.s. You save us time.
