This article contains lore or information taken from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and/or its manual.

Seers of mystery, holders of secrets and dwellers in dream. These practitioners of the Arcane Arts have learned through researching the ancient tomes to bend the forces of nature to do their will. They can make the energies of nature strike down opponents, summon forth great creatures or command the elements. They are a secretive sect, and will only gather and train in their own specially prepared mystic towers.[1]


Conjurers are the most advanced unit, such that they can even summon new units. They are quite weak and vulnerable, and chances are that they will die if a melee unit manages to get close to them, so they must be protected. Conjurers are very expensive and easy to kill, so sometimes it is better to leave them at the base and make them summon Water Elementals from there. If attacking the enemy base, make sure that the Conjurer uses Rain of Fire, as it brings destruction to everything in its path (including your own units!).

Conjurers maintain a close relationship with the elements about them, and the ability to focus those forces is the basis of this spell. This channeling manifests itself as a sphere of charged energy that issues forth from the hands, enabling the caster to strike an enemy from a great distance. This is one of the basic magiks taught to conjurers and serves as the cornerstone for training the caster in focusing both mind and will to the task of summoning.[2]

Summon Scorpions
Summons 1-4 Scorpions
A Conjurer as seen in the Warcraft: Orcs & Humans Manual.
Range Effect
N/A Summons 1-4 Scorpions

The caster calls upon the creatures of the desert by magically transporting them to do his bidding. They are under the conjurer's direction and will do his bidding to the death. Research has proven that it is simpler for the conjurer to transport several smaller scorpions in a short time than to drain his energies further by summoning a single, large creature.[2]

Summon Water Elemental
Summons a Water Elemental
Range Effect
N/A Summons a Water Elemental

The caster uses the forces of nature to create a water elemental. He summons the forces of air and water and combines them into a simulacrum to defend the lands. They are excellent creatures, and will never turn upon their creators. The element of water was chosen because it is persistent as in the state of erosion, and it is the opposite of fire, which seems to be the element that the Orcs favor.[2]

Rain of Fire
Unleashes a firestorm on the selected area
Range Effect
9 Unleashes a firestorm on the selected area

This is a very powerful spell that combines the natures of flame and water. It calls forth the essence of fire and delivers it through massive thunderheads of vapor and brimstone, creating an actual firestorm. This spell is very destructive, and will cause damage to any foes and buildings in its sphere of influence. Use this spell with care, for the rain of fire knows no friends.[2]
