Playing the Gnoll Campaign

You need Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne to play this campaign. Make sure to update it to the latest version by visiting inside the game.

  1. Start Warcraft III.
  2. Select Single Player → Custom Campaign.
  3. Select Gnoll Campaign in the file menu.
  4. Select the game difficulty in the difficulty menu (see below the instructions for selecting the right difficulty for you).
  5. Click Play Campaign.

Selecting the Right Difficulty

Easy: If you have been long time away from Warcraft III and you have not honed your skills to play the game lately, please choose the Easy difficulty.

Normal: If you know how the game functions, you are able to use hero abilities effectively, train a good mix of units, and create a good army, but you do not consider yourself as a super-good player, we recommend playing on the Normal difficulty.

Hard: If you are actually pretty good at the game, you can use hero and unit abilities to the maximum effect, you are able to micro units well, you know how to build an extremely effective army, and you know well what different abilities, items, and upgrades do, we recommend that you play on the Hard difficulty.

If even the Easy difficulty is too difficult for you, please consider using Warcraft III built-in cheats to make the game even easier.
