This issue is most likely to occur with pre-ordered versions of the game, and results in the Knight of the Order DLC not appearing in game. To fix this, go to \\appcache\\appinfo.vdf and delete this file before restarting Steam. This file will then automatically be recreated and the DLC should appear in-game.
If a machine is below the minimum requirements to run the game then this issue may occur; involving incorrect positioning of many character models and equipment. Often orcs may appear stuck in the ground and their heads will be colliding with the floor mesh. This is most likely to occur on PCs with single-core processors, as the game itself is optimized to distribute animation-related processes to a second core. Without this core the game will not properly render most enemy units, meaning the game is essentially unplayable on single-core systems. The only solution to this is to run the game on a computer which utilises a multi-core processor.
If your computer has a dual or quad-core processor and you are still encountering this issue, you should check that the game is not being forced to run on a single core. To do this, minimise the game whilst it is running and open the task manager using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Del and go to the 'Processes' tab. Here, find OrcsMustDie.exe in the list of processes and right click it before selecting 'Set Affinity...'. If you are on a dual core system, a box will appear with two processor cores listed - most likely CPU 0 and CPU 1. On quad core systems, this list will most likely also include CPU 2 and CPU 3. Tick the 'All Processors' box and press OK - the game will now correctly distribute processes amongst all processor cores.
By editing the default onslaught files (downloadable here) and putting them in this folder, you can use your custom levels essentially as an override so that the game will load your levels. Note that you should not rename levels when editing them as the game will no longer recognise them. Also of importance is the fact that using these overrides disables leaderboard scoring and statistics for as long as you are using the modified onslaughts. To return the game to its original state after modification, simply delete the contents of the onslaughts folder.
He shows up twice more in his old tower of Karazhan in Deadwind Pass which has been abandoned since Medivh's death at the hands of Khadgar and Lothar, shortly before the end of the First War. An \"Echo of Medivh\" is seen where players play a game of chess against him in the Gamesman's Hall, and an \"Image of Medivh\" is seen in a flashback on the Master's Terrace fighting off the blue dragon Arcanagos.
The game manuals for Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II stated that Medivh was born 45 years BDP. Sean Copeland later stated that the Guardian was born in the year -44. World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 returns to the -45 version, meaning that Medivh was killed at the age of 48 in the year 3 ADP.
The Incursion game mode contains special versions of standard maps with additional unique challenges and Mutators. Completing a Chaos tier in Expeditions for the first time will unlock a set of Incursion maps each time. Minibosses will drop less gear upon defeat, but and will drop more than normal amounts of pet consumables and eggs. On all Incursion maps, the 'Replay from Wave' function is disabled.
Once each wave begins, at some point during the wave a Spectral Knight will spawn from any of the ground lanes. Spectral Knights are large, floating Squire-like transparent ghosts that cannot be damaged by any weapons or stopped by any defense or barricade. They slowly move on the enemy path they spawn from directly towards the crystal, and do not stop until they get there. Once there, they attack the crystal doing 500 points of damage a second, which is a relatively small amount. They do not harm any defenses or heroes. Each Knight is either colored Red, Green or Purple, and when they spawn the game message will tell you what color they are in text, and the message text itself will also be in that same color as well. The Knights are not shown on the mini-map, but are represented on the actual map by a skull and crossbones icon of the same color that they are. Keep this in mind as you cannot tell by looking at the minimap how close they are to the crystal.
Once you have a Ritual Item debuff, give it to the altar by touching the coffin anywhere with your hero. The Ritual Item debuff has no timer, but if you switch heroes or die, it will be lost. You can only hold one Ritual Item debuff at a time. You must collect and bring 4 Ritual Items to the altar to activate the summoning Ritual. There is no time limit for getting all 4 Ritual Items, and they will remain there until all four are collected. The altar will display a message after each Ritual Item is given successfully, and you can also see them placed on each corner of the coffin as you progress. The game will announce when the Ritual can be used to summon the Dark Realm Statue (\"Dark Realm Ritual is Ready\"), which will be immediately after the 4th Ritual Item is placed. Once the 4th Ritual Item is placed, all other Ritual Items currently on the map or in the possession of a hero will disappear, although more may spawn after this event as Dark Prophets continue to spawn. To activate the Ritual, you must interact with the coffin. When you do this, you will call forward a single Dark Realm Statue miniboss that is located in place of one of the 4 pillars, with the Northeast, Northwest, Southwest, and Southeast pillars always activating in that order, with only one being summoned on each of the 4 waves. The Dark Realm Statue does not move from its location, but will attack you. The ritual only lasts 10 seconds. When the ritual is activated, the entire altar area is covered in a purple glow. If the Dark Realm Statue is not defeated during the ritual, it will vanish and any heroes inside the altar area will be killed instantly, no matter your defense or health level. You will then need to collect 4 more Ritual Items to summon it once again. If you summon it again, the Dark Realm Statue will have the same remaining health as when it disappeared.
This incursion also introduces a new miniboss, the Bastille Master. This is a unique miniboss to the game, and can spawn as a miniboss in other game modes. The Bastille Master appears as a NPC on the North end of the long bridge on Waves 1-4, and then on Wave 5 she disappears and then spawns from the North spawn point, usually along with another normal miniboss near the same time. What makes this miniboss unique is her ability to summon shield around her and any surrounding enemies that reflects all damage back to its source and instantly kill it. If one of your defenses attacks her while this shield is up, it will be lost. Same for your hero, if you attack any enemy with this shield active, you will lose a life. The shield is not affected by traps, auras or nodes though. The shield can still be activated while the Bastille Master is stunned.
Role-Playing Games give you hours on end of game play where you can explore a new world through the eyes of your own character. They tend to be the longest style of game with the most immersive story lines. Popular RPG titles include Skyrim, World of Warcraft, and Fallout.
The protagonist is introduced as a refugee attempting to escape to Enderal, a land of relative stability, on a merchant vessel. They are discovered towards the end of the voyage, causing their companion to be killed and resulting in the player being cast overboard. The player wakes up on the coast, discovers that they now possess magical powers, and travels to Ark, the capital of Enderal, to learn how to control these new abilities. It becomes clear that the player is a \"Prophet\", an individual of intense magical ability who can see into the past, and that your arrival coincides with \"the Cleansing\", a cycle of apocalyptic destruction and rebirth that has occurred for an indefinite amount of time. The cycle has recently begun anew following the death of the \"Lightborn\", part of a race of beings treated as gods by the inhabitants of the world. The death of the Lightborn has caused mass unrest in every nation, making the world seemingly ripe for the Cleansing, but the rulers of Enderal have managed to hide the truth from their subjects and escaped the turmoil. Throughout your journey, you uncover remnants of previous civilizations and assemble a magical beacon that supposedly offers the power to break the cycle of the Cleansing. Upon assembly, the player learns that a method for targeting the instigators of the Cleansing is needed, and a journey to the capital and epicenter of the civilization that came before Enderal is needed to achieve this. This journey reveals a plot twist: the game's antagonist has secretly manipulated events to ensure that the beacon would be constructed, because in truth, the beacon is the Cleansing. The player is forced to make a choice of either fleeing and leaving Enderal to be destroyed along with the rest of the world, or working to ensure that only Enderal is destroyed by the Cleansing, with the expansion adding a way to survive.
Enderal was in development for five years by a team of fourteen. It requires the base Skyrim game but not its downloadable content. The mod is fully voiced in both German and English languages.
In December 2016, SureAI announced that Enderal would be getting an expansion pack, Forgotten Stories, to be released in 2017. Forgotten Stories features content that was cut from the original release, and is expected to add 10-20 hours of gameplay. This includes two questlines for guilds featured in the original mod, as well as a new secret ending to the main quest.
In his review at PC Gamer, Jody Macgregor awarded Enderal a score of 74/100. Macgregor found his 50+ hours spent in game enjoyable, rekindling the joy of discovery found i
