Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne - Human Campaign - Chapter 1: Misconceptions

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Warcraft III: Frozen Throne

Location: North of Dalaran Ruins

At Grand Marshall Garithos’ base camp, near the outskirts of Dalaran, Kael’thas and his warriors arrive bearing ill news.

Garithos: You are late, Prince Kael’thas.  I thought you elves prided yourselves on punctuality.

Prince Kael’thas: It could not be helped, Lord Garithos.  We ran into a group of night elves from across the sea, and—

Garithos: I am not interested in your fanciful excuses!  You elves are here to serve the Alliance: thus, you will obey my commands to the leter!  Is that clear?

Prince Kael’thas: Yes, Lord Garithos.

Garithos: Now, the undead have begun a new offensive to retake Dalaran.  Their primary strike force marched south through Silverpine, but we managed to halt its advance at the base of the mountains.

Prince Kael’thas: My men are ready to fight, milord!  When shall we leave for the front?

Garithos: We will be leaving immediately.  But , your people will be staying here.  Our scouts report that a second strike force may be heading this way from the east.  I need you to repair the outlying observatories so that we can monitor that region.

Prince Kael’thas: But, milord, we are warriors, not—

Garithos: You have your orders, Prince Kael’thas.  I trust your elven ears heard them clearly enough.  Move out!

Lord Garithos and his troops left toward the front of the battle, while Prince Kael’thas remained behind in astonishment and soreness.

Prince Kael’thas: Insolent son of a … Let’s get this over with!

With that,  Kael’thas escorted his peons for the task ahead.

MAIN QUEST
Observatory Repair
Find and Repair the Observatories (0 of 3 Repaired)

The Observatories in this area served Lordaeron well when they were in operation.  Repair them to reveal vision of the area to your army and comply with Garithos’ command.

NEW UNIT AVAILABLE
Spell Breakers – Elven warriors trined to destroy spellcasters.  Initially has Spell Steal which will transfer spells from enemy units to yours.

Prince Kael’thas: That’s done it.  The observatory has been repaired.  Let’s move quickly and get to work on the others.

HINT – The Observatory has revealed much of the surrounding terrain including a nearby gold mine.  You should build a base there.

Prince Kael’thas: Months ago, we buried a number of supply caches in this area.  Perhaps it’s time we dug them up.  We’ll need all the resources we can get our hands on.

OPTIONAL QUEST
Hidden Caches
Find the Hidden Caches (0 of 4 Found)

There are several hidden caches of gold, lumber and items hidden around this area.  Find them all to bolster your resources and power.

HINT – Use Control Magic to take command of enemy summoned units

Kael’thas confronts a band of bandits led by a rogue Wizard who summons a Water Elemental.  The Spell Breakers are able to control the summoned Elemental against them.  Behind their camp lies one of the caches.

HINT – Flamestrike can destroy many things, like the trees near these mystical runes.

As Kael’thas and his Blood Elves approach the shore, they discover that the port and its ships had been destroyed.  Incommunicating them with nearby islands.

Prince Kael’thas: Damn.  We’ll have to find a way across the lake to reach the outlying goldmine.

Suddenly, from the water came out Lady Vashj accompanied by an escort of Naga Myrmidons.

Prince Kael’thas: Naga!  You fought for the demon Illidan!

Lady Vashj: We are on our own now, good prince.  I am called Lady Vashj.  My breathren and I come in peace, to offer you our aid.

Prince Kael’thas: You have nothing I need, witch.

Lady Vashj: Is that so?  I thought you might require boats to reach the observatories you seek.

Prince Kael’thas: And you would provide these freely?  Why should I trust you, my lady?

Lady Vashj: Our two races share a common ancestry, Kael.  Now, against the undead, we share a common peril.  These boats are merely a gesture of good will.

Prince Kael’thas: Then I accept your offer, Thank you.

Using ships provided by Lady Vashj and her naga, Kael’thas and his Blood Elves were able to cross the lake to find Observatories spread in other Islands.  However, the Scourge kept sending attacks to Kael’thas new base camp.  Kael’thas escorted his peons toward the last of the three Observatories, repairing it successfully.  When suddenly …

Prince Kael’thas: Hail, Lord Garithos.  The observatories have been repaired as you requested.  We were just about to—

Garithos: I received ill news from the front line.  Is it true that you’ve consorted with the vile naga?

Prince Kael’thas: Well, yes, milord.  They helped us across the lake.  I assure you they pose no threat to us or to—

Garithos: They are inhuman and must be crushed like any other enemy!  Be careful where you place your loyalties, blood elf.  I will not tolerate treason in my ranks.  Now I must return to the front.  You will remain here and wait for further orders.
