Warcraft III - Your favorite race and why

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I've enjoyed playing all the races, but seemed to have had the most luck with Undead. The Death knight + Lich combination creates an "ownage" hero nuke, and fiends seem to be a strong tier 1 unit and one that can be used throughout the game. In a longer game, fiends, stats, wyrms, is a deadly combination. Even massing necromancers and ghouls can provide me with a60% Undead stat.

Night Elf for me. Possibly the most IMBA solo race.
Humans, all they do is tower. But it can easily be countered.
UD has a strong carry with fiends and des. Maybe worms too.
Orc, I dunno what they do. . Pillage much?

Undead, you don't have to purchase more workers like the nightelfs (on some buidlings). the undead can mass pretty fast if you have atleast 3+ crypts. they basically remind me of the zerg from SC, ha ha, good old times rushing people....

...Sounds like you know very little about War3.

You are right in that you don't need many workers, but UD is very gold intensive in the early stages of the game. You are also right in that they are the closest resemblance to Zerg.

My personal favorite has always been Orc. Orc typically spends more gold for fewer, more beefy units. I'd rather have a smaller army and be able to micro it efficiently as opposed to 100 units attack moving.

I've not played this gem in about 3 years, but when I did I was almost always nightelf, just liked the Huntresses and starfall, as it used to be awesome. Also entangling a hero and just picking them off with archers when they couldn't move was awesome.

I like the Orcs the best because of the boost the shamans give to the rest of your party; they're also bloody hard to kill.

QFT. If you manage to get witch docs + shamans + tauren, you are pretty much set.

Orcs FTW.

You mean Bloodlust which increases friendly allied units attack and movement speeds. Shamen are definitely not hard to kill, they have low base damage and only 335 hit points.

Not necessarily, keep in mind that Witch Doctors and Shamen are unarmored and can be easily killed by a large variety of units. They are especially vulnerable to piercing damage.

Undead is good with the Crypt Fiends for a mid-game zerg win and the spirit towers allow for pretty good defence imo.

But I like POTM for end game with Starfall
