Creep Basics | Creeps | Critters | Goblins | Neutral Buildings


Neutral buildings appear at strategic locations on every map in Warcraft III. They are designated on the minimap as tiny golden houses. These neutral buildings can be used by any race. Any unit that comes within close range of a neutral building can use it. When a unit enters the vicinity of the building, an arrow usually appears over its head, indicating that the unit can click on the neutral buildings to do business, such as hiring mercenaries or buying magic items. Some buildings have automatic benefits, and require nothing more than the presence of a unit nearby. Here are a few neutral buildings that have been sighted in the lands of Azeroth. You can also use the Select User button on the neutral building and click on the unit you want to use to activate the building.

Neutral buildings are never actually owned by any one player. To use a neutral building, a player must move a unit within one cell (150 game units) of the neutral building. The building will then indicate that it is now active for the player and can be used.

Once a unit has activated a neutral building, the player can left click on the building and receive a new command card with a list of commands indicating what can be done at the building.

Units from opposing sides can use neutral buildings simultaneously.

All neutral buildings are invulnerable.

Neutral buildings' stock has a Cooldown indicator so you know how long you need to wait for an item/unit to be back in stock.

Use neutral buildings at night to avoid the Creeps defending them.

The Goblins were former allies of the Horde, but their greed has inspired them to strike out on their own. Goblin Merchants sell various magic items to visiting Heroes.

Each Item lists the name of the item with a link to more information. The time it takes for an item to regenerate after it has been purchased is listed next. Following that is a list of when an item is first available after the start of the game. Potions of Invisibility, for example, aren't available until 440 seconds later (7+ minutes). The maximum number of items sold is listed in [ ].

Here you will find ready fighters to join you. Many creeps that are otherwise belligerent in the wild can be bought here for a fee. Units hired will count against your overall food cap so you must have enough food to support them. You can construct buildings next to Mercenary Camps or have Wisps harvest Lumber within the control range of a Mercenary Camp in order to use the camp while your army is is away. You can also just leave a low level unit next to the camp. Using this method you can continue to buy units at the Mercenary Camp as they are available.

The Mercenaries available are determined by the map tileset. There are thirteen different Mercenary Camps.

Each line of Creeps represents a separate Mercenary Camp based on the tileset. Mercenaries may be listed more than once such as the Mud Golem and Ice Troll Berserker because they are available in multiple Mercenary Camps. Merc regeneration times are typically level/food cost of Merc * 50 sec. + 10 sec.

Unlike with other Neutral Buildings, the Fountain of Health does not need to be activated by mouse clicking. Instead, the Fountain automatically regenerates the hit points of nearby Heroes and non-mechanical units.

Regenerate 1% of the unit's total Hit Points per second.

This fabulous building transports units from one Way Gate to another. Sometimes two connected Way Gates will be the same color to indicate that they are connected. To use a Way Gate simply select units and click on the Way Gate. Units will also travel through Way Gates automatically if it is closer to use the Way Gate than to walk.
