Levels of Upkeep in Warcraft 3 – How much Gold do you get?

Upkeep LevelFood Amount/PopulationGold IncomeGold per Worker
No Upkeep0-50 Food100%+10 gold per worker
Low Upkeep51-80 Food70%+7 gold per worker
High Upkeep81-100 Food40%+4 gold per worker
The amount of units you have can reduce the income of gold a worker can get out of a gold mine. Like that another tactical layer of depht is given to the game.Decide wisely if you go over the 50 food limit and over the 80 food limit, because you will get less gold. Only do it if you have to – to be stronger in the fight. 😉

Which Warcraft 3 Units
are the Strongest?

If you had to pick single units that are the strongest in Warcraft 3 Reforged, you have to compare the amount of gold and lumber to spend as well as the food and combine it with the impact of the unit.

WC3 Strong UnitsBy comparing all units in WC3, Rifleman and Archers (or Hippogyrph Riders) would win this battle with cheap costs and high damage output, espescially if you create a critical mass of them. 😉

But if you want to get really competitive, it’s all about unit compositions:

Great unit compositions are key in Warcraft 3 Reforged to create the most powerful armies, because you can benefit from synergies.

Strongest Warcraft 3 Unit Compositions:

RaceTop Strategy
HumanOne of the strongest human unit combos is to play mass Rifleman and add Priests and Spellbreakers. You upgrade the Rifleman to 3-3 and get Inner-Fire for the Priests, which will increase the damage and armor of the army. This is superhard hard to break especially if you have a Mountainking and Paladin hero combo on top of that.
OrcA super strong orc army is often about the momentum: If you reach T2 fast after having 2-3 grunts, now invest into Raiders with web, 1 Kodo and add 2 Spirit Walkers. If you gather up to 2-3 Raiders your army is extremely dangerous. You can hunt any enemy down and pick off single units with the Web. The Kodo gives extra damage and can eat one webbed unit. The Spirit Walkers split the damage, so that you most likely lose no unit at all.
NightelfNightelfs can tech superfast: While going for a good mass of archers, you can add dryads very fast which give more sustain and they slow the enemy. Afterwards you get Mountain Giants fast and add 1-2 Fairy Dragons for the magic counter, this combination together with a Kotg is strong in all game phases (early, mid and late).
UndeadThe Undead army is having a good time when the first Obisidan Statue joins the party. A Deathknight with 5-8 Crypt Fiends and a Statue with an incoming Lich are deadly powerful and everyone is afraid of that. If you now add the Orb of Corruption on the lich, add 2-3 Abominations, got a mana and a hp statue plus one flying Destroyer vs magic, then your unit combination reaches it’s climax and you will just own any opponent! 😉

Warcraft 3 Reforged
Units Tier List:

These are the strongest Warcraft 3 Reforged units based on a unit tier list. In a tier list, the s-tier is always the strongest and each one of the following ranks is weaker or has less impact on the game like the a-rank, b-rank, c-rank and d-rank.
On the image you see all of the Warcraft 3 Reforged units defined into a unit tier level:
The higher a unit is, the more impact it has in general on winning a match in WC3 on average – it can always vary in single games.

Warcraft 3 Damage and Armor Type Calculation Table:

Whenever you want to counter your opponent with units in Warcraft 3, think about the damage and armor types.
Example: Piercing damage from units like Rifleman or Archers are extremely strong vs light armor (often air units like Wind Riders) with 200% damage, a Rifleman with 21 damage is then making 42 damage. But if the same unit is attacking medium armor it only makes 75% damage (16 damage).

Warcraft 3 Unit Stats

Attack DamageThe pure damage of a unit.
Attack TypeThe possible attack types in Warcraft 3 are: Normal, Piercing, Siege, Chaos, Magic and Hero damage.
Attack SpeedThe attack speed together with the damage define the dps (damage per second). The attack speed can be increased with auras and spells.
RangeEach unit can be melee or ranged and has a fixed distance in which it can attack the opponent.

I feel like the batrider is arguable the most underrated unit in the game. The orcs in general have the worst AA, simply making an air unit a temporarily immobile ground unit does not make them less dangerous but only vulnerable if they are trying to flee. Bat riders are cheap, can be produced quickly, and will in moments tear apart a fleet of wyrms or chimeras you name it. You have a squad of Tauren (mostt powerful melee anywhere) on the ground, their single vulnerability (air units) is resolved. If they aren’t having to kamikaze anyone, they are amazing… Read more »
