Are you among the many fans who never played previous Warcraft RTS games, and decided to purchase it to learn all the lore that gave birth to World of Warcraft? If so, you should know that Blizzard’s Warcraft III Team has deployed Warcraft III patch 1.24c on the Westfall PTR server which allows The Culling (of Stratholme) to load properly.  For months since the last Warcraft III patch, players were unable to play this human campaign which birthed the concept for Caverns of Time: Stratholme.

It is a key point in Prince Arthas’s life that turned him down the perilous path that led him to Frostmourne and to serve Ner’zhul the Lich King. Arthas discovered the plagued grain had reached Stratholme, and thus ordered his men to massacre the city as they would in time rise as undead. Uther the Lightbringer and Jaina refuse to participate, and for this Prince Arthas disbanded the Order of the Silver Hand.
