This article or section contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and official bonus maps.

The twisted, mutilated bodies of the Abominations are comprised of multiple dead limbs and body parts from various corpses. These enormous warriors love to carve flesh and tear their enemies apart. The slow moving and slow-witted Abominations constantly drip blood behind them and smell like a disease ridden slaughterhouse. They carry large cleavers into combat and wield various sickle-bladed hooks on their disproportionate limbs.

Information

Abominations are very powerful ground melee troops with lots of hit points. You should build two Slaughterhouses so that you can build two Abominations at once. Be sure to upgrade the Abominations as much as possible. Abominations are a good progression after Ghouls.

Use Abominations with Necromancers. Cast Unholy Frenzy on Abominations to make them even more powerful.

Abomination Counters

Abominations have heavy armor which means it's best to use magic attacks against them.

Spells and abilities

Cannibalize

BTNCannibalize.png
Consumes a nearby corpse to heal 15 hit points per second. It takes 33 seconds to fully consume a corpse.
Research Cost Researched At Upgrade Time
75 Gold Crypt 30 sec.
Duration Range Allowed Targets Effect
33 sec. 5 Dead, Organic Heals 15 HP/sec.

Cannibalize takes a while to work so its best to use it after a battle or to make sure the enemy isn't attacking you while you're using it. Cannibalize and Raise Dead will automatically use corpses in a Meat Wagon as if the corpses were on the ground. So bring Meat Wagons with Exhume Corpses. When units Cannibalize, the most injured units do so first. Group orders won't apply to Ghouls (and Abominations) that are busy Cannibalizing corpses. This is because it would prevent them from healing (Cannibalizing) before the process is complete.

Disease Cloud
