The first 3D game in the Warcraft franchise, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos went through huge development changes since work began in 1999 before finally settling for an RTS game. Both it and World of Warcraft were being developed around the same time, the latter itself a rescripted modification of Warcraft III.
| The Frozen Throne|
Unused stuff found in its expansion pack.
Human Mission One
|H01Grunt17.mp3||Grunt||He's escaping! Kill him!|
|H01VillagerF39.mp3||Female villager||*feminine laughter*|
Human Mission Two
One unused voiceline, informing the player of the peasants' ability to take arms.
|H02Footman38.mp3||Footman||If our town comes under attack, a militia can be summoned by ringing the bell on the town hall. The peasants will run to the town center and arm themselves for battle.|
Human Interlude One
The meeting between The Prophet and Antonidas originally took place at a bridge. When the mission map is opened in the world editor, the bridge itself, unused cameras and triggers can still be found. The map also features villagers, kids and Gryphon riders that are all unused, hitting that the map was more active and lively at one point.
The file names for the voicelines start from 30 and and end at 37, unlike the other missions whose voicelines start from 01. This hints the mission had more dialogue.
Human Mission Four
Jaina was planned to die at the hand of ghouls in this mission and later turn into a banshee. It was scrapped as Arthas had more than enough reasons to go after Mal'Ganis. The banshee idea was later given to Sylvanas. The Official Strategy Guide wasn't changed to reflect the new storyline.
All of these are said by Arthas.
|H04Arthas09.mp3||Jaina I swear by The Light, you shall be avenged!|
|H04Arthas11.mp3||What the hell are you saying!? Who are you anyway!?|
|H04Arthas15.mp3||Jaina, you're alive.|
|H04Arthas17.mp3||I'll tell you all about it later.|
|H04Arthas19.mp3||This looks like some kind of Gateway. I bet Jaina would know how to activate it.||No Gateways appear in this mission in the final game.|
|H04Arthas21.mp3||No simple cult could've built this.||Perhaps referring to the Gateway.|
Human Mission Six
Several unused voicelines of villagers panicking and begging for Mercy were removed from the mission due to the disturbing delivery of these lines.
|H06Arthas30.mp3||Arthas||Father, forgive me for what I must do.||Appears in Reforged|
|H06Necromancer20.mp3||Necromancer||Go sniff somewhere else, pup. You best draw back to your senile father and await the end of your reign.||Appears in Reforged|
|H06VillagerF24.mp3||Female Villager||The roof is collapsing! Run!|
|H06VillagerF57.mp3||Female Villager||What did we ever do to you?|
|H06VillagerF58.mp3||Female Villager||You're supposed to be our prince!|
|H06VillagerF59.mp3||Female Villager||You're supposed to be the defender of Lordaeron!|
|H06VillagerM23.mp3||Male Villager||The King's own men are attacking! Run for your lives!|
|H06VillagerM25.mp3||Male Villager||The walls are falling in! Get out!|
|H06VillagerM26.mp3||Male Villager||What have you done? What's going on?|
|H06VillagerM27.mp3||Male Villager||Mercy, milord!||Used in Trudging through the Ashes|
|H06VillagerM28.mp3||Male Villager||What have we done?|
Human Mission Seven
One unused voiceline of Arthas.
|H07Arthas12.mp3||It's me old friend, it's been a long time.|
Human Mission Nine
One unused voiceline of Arthas.
|H09Arthas28a.mp3||I'm so tired.|
Finger of Death
Finger of Death uses the icon of another spell named Corpse Explode which was one of the original necromancer spells. It can been seen in a Beta screenshot.
It's interesting to note that Finger of Death in the final game is only available to Editor-only units, namely Tichondrius and Archimonde.
This was originally the Dreadlord's ultimate ability which let him summon friendly units from afar. It's still in the final game, Tichondrius uses it in an interlude of Undead campaign to summon both Mephistroth and Anetheron.
It also appears in the expansion pack as an item with unlimited uses.
The game's files contain a couple of icons for both units and abilities that are remnants of the Alpha and Beta.
The game's files contain a couple of models that are not used by any unit in the game.
