Undead Strengths

Like other races in Warcraft 3 Reforged, the Undead has certain strengths that you should use to your advantage. The following are the strengths of the race that you should know about:

Lots of Tower Damage Many Buildings and Towers can attack enemy units and help defend your base.

While the race does have some strengths to give it an edge, it also has certain weaknesses that you should keep in mind. The following are the weaknesses of the undead that you should know about:

Weaknesses Effect
Haunted Mines Early expansion of a Haunted Mine can be easily attacked and destroyed.
Very Weak Early Early on Undead are weak to rushing enemy players.

Strategy – Tips For Play Undead

Death Knight has an ability called Death Coil Healing. This can be used for damage or for strong healing when used on undead units and heroes. It can even be used on neutral heroes such as Pitlord and Dark Ranger because they are undead as well.

Having an Obsidian Statue near units can be very useful as it casts AOE your group of units automatically. The Dread Lord Hero is easy to kill but his sleep ability is very strong and can be used to catch a fleeing Hero. You can even use it on an enemy that is channeling a spell in order to interrupt it.

If you plan on going with Crypt Lord Hero first and then rush Crypt Fiend Units so that you can use the Carrion Beetles Ability to summon small beetles to tank early on Creep Camps. You can combine Dreadlord and Death Knights Auras with the Ghouls who have Ghoul Frenzy Upgrade for a very viable build.
