Warcraft 3 Day of the Dragon is a multi map campaign. The story is based on the book Day of the Dragon written by Richard A. Knaak inside the Warcraft world. The time plays between the Warcraft 2 Addon and Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos. So it is like the story before Warcraft 3!
The Day of the Dragon campaign is really extensive with 15 different big maps. 4 of these maps are cinematic like a video sequence for the story line. It is done really lovely. The maps contain many many optional stuff like the extra map 15 which you only reach if you complete all optional quests as a bad guy. 😀

  • Try to lose no units early!
  • Use Krasus’ and Deathwing’s Medallion as much as possible.

Day of the Dragon Chapter 8: The Battle of Grim Batol

  • Protect the base with many towers. Wall the towers withh tents & other buildings.
  • Don’t attack too fast, concentrate on building a full supply army then you can go!
  • Deathwing heals over time, so act quickly. Nozdormu’s Steal-Item will help you heal you aspects. Alexstrasza will do that later. Malygos just has to provide enough mana. Sleep and Mindfrost are effective defensive measures.
