Warcraft 3 Reforged Nightelf Strategy Guide: How to play the Nightelf Race?

What are the pros and cons of the nightelf race in WC3 Reforged and how should you play them?

WC3 Reforged Nightelf LogoNightelfs usually play with only one or two heroes and have to create an advantage in the game. They have to analyse the enemy and create map control for beeing able to expand everywhere.

Dependent on the gameplan nightelf can be very offensive through mass strategies like mass Archers, mass Hunts, or mass Dryads, but have to seriously overcommit into something to create dominance.

With even supply numbers, nightelfs often fall behind, and especially in the late game, they are the weakest race. Because of that a good economy, tactical advantages, higher hero levels, and a flexible playstyle are key to win over other races.

WC3 Nightelf Strategy Pros and Cons

Advantages and Strengths of the Nightelf WC3 Race:

  • Wisps can scout ver nicely, because they can jump onto any tree to harvest lumber. Like that you won’t lose the harvesting time.
  • Through great spread of Wisps a lot of advantages are possible: You can expand easily, you can dispell the enemies mana or block units and heroes if you chase them.
  • Nightelfs can do AOW creeping at the game start which boosts their creep potential.
  • The Monwells with self-filling moon-juice is extremely powerful to heal up fast and creep fast.
  • The Staff of Preservation can be bought at tier 2, which is cheap, and can save a lot of units and heroes easily.
  • The tactical options and strategies are great for nightelfs, they can invest into range, melee or even air.

Disadvantages and Weaknesses of the Nightelf WC3 Race:

  • Wisps are easy to kill and can cause a lack of lumber fast.
  • Nightelfs can be rushed in the early game without any serious protection.
  • If the vulnerable entangled gold mine is destroyed, nightelfs lose a lot of time of getting gold income.
  • The nightelf heroes are mostly solo stars and only some build synergies.
