WarCraft III 1.02 Update Released
9:48 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

Blizzard has produced a patch for their new title Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The patch updates the game to version 1.02 and contains the following changes:


  • Fixed an issue that allowed players to abuse dragons with Devour.
  • Fixed an issue with dragons that could cause them to divert attacks.


  • Necklace of Immunity, Tome of Greater Experience, and Goblin Land Mines no longer randomly drop in multiplayer games.
  • Scroll of Resurrection & Scroll of Animate Dead item level increased.
  • Bridges are no longer destroyable on the (6)Stromguarde.w3m map.

    NOTE: Replays are incompatible between major game revisions. (1.01 replays cannot be viewed with the 1.02 version of Warcraft III.)

  • At the moment the only way to obtain the patch is to log on to but there is a promise to put it on the Blizzard ftp site as soon as possible. In further Blizzard news they have posted a number of Warcraft III wallpapers on their site and are advertising a position as “Game Master”.
