    So I'm getting near the end of the Undead chapter.

    Arthas keeps going down in levels.
    I'm all the way down to level 4... :cry:

    edit:

    Ahhhh!

    Is there any way (without Blink) to get at that +5 ring of protection in the second trap room of the cave-in map just before the final battle?
    Or is it just a taunt to get you to hang around until you die as the timer runs down?

    I left the side quests alone because I could never spare enough troops to accomplish anything productive. The closest I ever came was 13 seconds left on the timer...

    Maybe I could check the net for a good walk through with some information on whether I can knock out one of the fronts...

    So on the custom games you have to play without a reload to get the replay option to activate?

    :rolleyes:

    Wow.
    I'm playing the Orc mini-game now.
    Plays like a RPG.

    I've got three heros now after picking up the drunken brawler panda guy.
    Any more gonna show up?
    The only neutral hero that has yet to show up in any of the gameplay so far is the Pit Lord.

    edit:

    And any opinions as to which armor is the best of the three to choose as the quest reward (kill harpys)?

    So I finish Act I and it says I need to download Act II and III from the battle net.

    I went there and clicked on every sub-topic for Warcraft III and didn't find anything.

    Where they at? :(

    BTW- Merry Christmas Everybody

    If I remember right, they're included in the official patch, so all you need to do is to connect to battle.net, which also patches you up to the latest version. Have you played without the official patch installed thus far?

    Ver 1.07 which is what came in the box.

    I see the lastest is 1.22.

    Geez. Ya think they might have included that since most of the updates were as far back as 2005?

    The package that you got has been on the market for that long I expect. With all of Blizzard's games you can always expect regular updates, so patching up as soon as you install the game(s) is the thing to do.

    Feeling totally bummed out... :(

    I install WC3 on my new PC and downloaded patch 1.23 and now the movies only play in low def and they look terrible. The game still plays in 1280x1024 OK but the movies look like 640x480. :(

    I created an account at battle net through the game to post for technical support but I can't log on there to post anything. :bang:

    That shouldn't be right... So the movies look all choppy/pixelated or what?

    I reinstalled back to 1.07 and they played fine.
    Installed the 1.23 patch again and they play better but still not as crisp, like it's at a lower resolution.
    In the newer patches you can play without the CD so I'm betting that's the catch.
    The movies aren't installed at the highest resolution probably.

    Anyways I just finished the Human act I on hard.
    Ouch...
    Hard is....... hard. :rolleyes:

    That's weird... I've had that patch for awhile and I'm PRETTY sure the movies have played fine. I'll just confirm that and then come back and post.

    And if you think the human campaign is hard on that difficulty, try playing the Final level ;)

    Are you referring to the final level in Burning Crusade or in Frozen Throne?

    Just checked - The cinematics look fine for me without the CD.

    Burning Crusade? Don't you mean Reign Of Chaos? Well the final level of Reign Of Chaos as well as The Frozen Throne are quite hard when the difficulty level is raised to the maximum.

    I suppose he was referring to WORLD of warcraft?

    @Aces, Yes they can be a bit challenging :p
