Warcraft III FAQ Update
6:00 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has once again updated their "Scroll of Knowledge" FAQ for upcoming RTS/RPG Warcraft III. With over twenty new additions to the already extensive list, the new pre-answered questions cover the gamut from 3D card support to the role of Ogres in this long-awaited sequel. If you've got a question about this game that wasn't answered by our hands-on preview of the title (although that is tough to imagine) then it can be found on this list. Here's a small sample:

Why were the Burning Legion removed as a playable race?


The concept for the Burning Legion has always been one of an epic and dominating force within the world of Warcraft. During the race design process, we found that the Demons lost much of their flavor and importance in the world when we were forced to try and balance them to the other races. In the end, we felt that using the Demons as an ultra-powerful NPC race would be a better option for the game, and in the process, allow us to give the other races more concentrated spells and abilities.


Will the Burning Legion be a playable race using the world editor?


No, but they can be used as non-player units for multi-player games or in trigger maps.


How will the Undead construct buildings?


Acolytes will raise undead structures from the Blight.

We'll just nod our heads knowingly after that last one. Remember when you visit the FAQ that the updated questions are in white. And if you've missed out on our WCIII preview, we think you'll do the right thing and click the link below.
