    Trophy Points:
    This is a project I've been working on for some time now. It has gone through several remakes and complete changes to the consept of the map untill the version which I plan on to stand by.

    The maps focus is the war between orcs,draenei and other races on Draenor. There will be 12 factions - 7 orc clans, 2 draenei factions, ogres, arakkoa and Burning Legion. The base of game is build on Azeroth Wars, just on Draenor and being more event driven.

    (Beware of gramatical mistakes and typos)​
    Blackrock Clan
    The Blackrock clans main goal is to conquer all of Gorgrond and than quickly move it's forces down south to burn down the draenei city of Shattrath. Blackrock's combine strong melee units and siege weapons. Depanding on paths chosen you can make Blackrock the leading clan of the Horde that will burn Draenor in fires of industry, or abandon the Horde and return to ancestors and traditions.

First crush pathetic Ogres and take over Nagrand, then you can turn your attention towards Talador and start siege of Auchindon or attack Shattrath. Or you can leave the Horde and join the Mag'har returning back to traditions. As Warsong you rule by powerfull cavalary.

    Also this project is beyond one man so if there's anyone willing to help I will gladly accept when you PM me.

    Trophy Points:
    Hopefully all these orc clans won't be allied for long, maybe make some of them have path which allies them with either the Legion or the Draenei.

    Trophy Points:
    Right that might be a problem but for now I think I want to stick to the way the orc clans are done.

    Stormreavers are against Horde from the start and most of the clans have paths that lead in them leaving the Horde/joining the Legion/allying with draenei or other factions. The ones I'm personally affraid of and might consider reworking are the arakkoa who have very limited paths and most of them leave them going solo against everyone.

    Trophy Points:
    Fair enough, if Stormreavers start against them it looks a bit better
  8. Devolver


    Trophy Points:
    you can give a few screenshots, I think that the Nathrezim n the service of the Ner'zhul(necromancer) somehow did not really like because Ner'zhul hated legion when he was alive and dead
  9. Bersekr21

    Bersekr21 The Boneless

    Trophy Points:
    Well I based this path more on the things Ner'Zhul goes through in novel Beyond the Dark Portal. Ner'Zhul speaks of having visions of death so I figured out that in this path his people fall and he's forced to escape and in his exile the feeling of guilt brings these visions to him and they turn him mad. Later it is revealed that it wasn't feeling of guilt but a nathrezim that corrupted Ner'Zhul.

    When it comes to screenshots there's nothing to be seen so far, i have just models and skins, some units and heroes and I'm playing with abbilities. I want to set up this stuff before the terrain (mostly because I'm not that good at terraining so I'm trying to avoid it for now)
  10. Skillerino

    Skillerino one fool once told me have faith in humanity

    Trophy Points:
    Well he has seen his dead wife (That was KJ manipulating him) But what if this path allies him with Legion as soon as its researched and if Nerzhul dies he will be turned into armor and Frostmourne (And he can corrupt some dreanei or orc and become his vessel or champion it's mostly what if scenario) Other than that what if he kills entire clan for the burning Legion and get demons and he would power up the Legion (Get Tichondrius,Malganis for example since u want nathrezim)
