Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne - Undead Campaign - Chapter 6: A New Power in Lordaeron

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

Location: Ruins of Lordaeron Capital City, Tirisfal Glades

The next day, on the outskirts of Lordaeron’s capital city, Sylvanas and her allies prepare to lay siege to Balnazaar’s formidable defenses.

Varimathras: The capital city is heavily defended. Balnazaar is no fool, my lady. This battle can be won only through attrition.

Grand Marshal Garithos: What’s the matter, demon? Are you afraid?

Varimathras: Watch your tongue, human dog. Your hollow bravado does not impress—

Sylvanas Windrunner: Stand down, gentlemen! Save your anger for Balnazaar. Garithos, I’ll lead my forces in a frontal assault while you attack the city from the rear. Give the order. Let the attack commence.

MAIN QUEST

Balnazaar

- Destroy Balnazaar’s purple base

Balnazaar, the most powerful of the Dreadlords, holds Lordaeron in an iron grip. Only with the help of Garithos’ army can Sylvanas hope to overthrow the mighty Dreadlord’s rule and bring him to his knees, thus establishing her freedom from the Scourge once and for all.

HINT – You are able to control Garithos and his army of humans

Footman: Lord Garithos, our scouts have found the missing band of dwarves! They appear to be lost in the wilderness nearby.

Grand Marshal Garithos: Those brainless dwarves are almost more trouble than they’re worth! However, we’ll need them on the front lines. I’ll have to lead them myself.

OPTIONAL QUEST

Ironforge Dwarves

- Locate the missing Dwarves

Unlike the rest of Garithos’ troops, the Dwarven contingent seems to have gone astray during the march to Lordaeron. If they could be located, their assistance in laying siege to the city would be invaluable.

Varimathras: Balnazaar’s forces are advancing!

As Sylvanas and Garithos’ forces get their way through Balnazaar’s defenses, they spot a massive Frost Wyrm.

Grand Marshal Garithos: The enemy is advancing! We may need help here!

HINT – Rescue the dwarves to gain better defenses against air attacks.

In their way to reach the lost Dwarves, Garithos and his forces encounter a group of Kobolds.

Grand Marshal Garithos: Here they come, boys! Stand your ground.

As they defeat some Kobolds, they find cages with Dwarves inside. Garithos frees them and they lead Garithos to the remaining Lost Dwarves beyond the hill.

Grand Marshal Garithos: Can’t you idiots follow simple orders? There’s a war on, and you louts are off having a picnic! Get this column rolling immediately!

Rifleman: Right away. Lord Garithos! Move’em out, lads! They don’t pay us enough to put up with that asshole.

OPTIONAL QUEST COMPLETED

Ironforge Dwarves

UNITS NOW AVAILABLE

Dwarves – You may now build a Workshop. This building offers training and upgrades for Riflemen, Mortar Teams, and Siege Engines.

HINT – Garithos’ Siege Engines have the Barrage upgrade, which gives them more effective firepower against enemy flyers.

The Dwarves formed positions and marched behind Garithos, toward Balnazaar’s defenses.

Balnazaar: Ah, my wayward pet. Garithos, I see you’ve grown a spine since we last met.

Grand Marshal Garithos: Your mind powers tricked me before, demon, but never again! You and I have a serious score to settle.

Balnazaar: You vile traitors, will suffer for this outrage!

Varimathras: Strike for the Dark Lady! For Sylvanas! Victory draws near! Hasten the attack!

Sylvanas Windrunner: Push the attack! Their defenses are weakening!

Grand Marshal Garithos: Cut them to shreds! For Lordaeron! Stand fast, my warriors! We’re not out of this yet!

Sylvanas Windrunner: Storehouses such as this hold many of Lordaeron’s treasures. Seek them out, and we’ll claim whatever artifacts they hold.

Sylvanas and Garithos’ forces kill hordes of Lordaeron City Mutants and War Golems to reach the Storehouses. Among the treasures is the Kelen’s Dagger of Escape(teleports the Hero a short distance) and other artifacts.

Banshee: Mistress, we’ve discovered another storehouse! It may hold artifacts tha could aid us!

Among the artifacts is the Ring of the Archmagi(a powerful artifact with a wondrous gem inset, which increases Strength, Agility and Intelligence by 3 and gives to nearby friendly units a bonus to mana regeneration); and the Crown of Kings(+5 bonus to Agility, strength and Intelligence).

Sylvanas Windrunner: Where are you, Balnazaar? Afraid to face me?

Balnazaar: Now, feel the wrath of the Legion!

Sylvanas Windrunner: Let’s see. I’ve made one of your brothers my servant and tore the other to bloody shreds. I wonder what your fate holds Balnazaar?

Balnazaar: Come, you burning devils! Balnazaar calls! Heed me, demons! Devour these traitorous fools! These Plaguelands are mine!

Banshee: Mistress Sylvanas, we’ve found yet another storehouse! It likely holds priceless magical treasures!

Among the artifacts found are the Diamond of Summoning(Teleports 12 of the player’s units within the targeted area to the location of the Hero when used); and the Mask of Death (Recovers hit points equal to 50% of the attack damage dealt to an enemy).

Sylvanas Windrunner: Push the attack! Their defenses are weakening!

Varimathras: Balnazaar must be somewhere!

MAIN QUEST COMPLETED

Balnazaar

Sylvanas Windrunner: It’s over, Balnazaar. Varimathras?

Varimathras: Yes, my lady?

Sylvanas Windrunner: Kill him.

Varimathras: But I … It is forbidden for one of the Nathrezim to kill another! My defection was one thing, but this …

Sylvanas Windrunner: I require one last test of your loyalty, dreadlord. Do it.

Balnazaar: You wouldn’t dare!

Without further hesitation, Varimathras slashed at Balnazaar and slew him.

Grand Marshal Garithos: There, your business is done. Now, I want you wretched animals out of my city before I—

Sylvanas Windrunner: Kill him, too.

Varimathras: Gladly.

Sylvanas Windrunner: The capital city is ours, but we are no longer part of the Scourge. From here on out, we shall be known as the Forsaken. We will find our own path in this world, dreadlord … and slaughter anyone who stands in our way.
