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

Small, quick flying unit, effective against enemy casters. Though not actual Dragons, these mystical looking creatures police the Emerald Dream from magic. As such, they are immune to magic. Attacks land and air units.

The Faerie Dragon is an anti-spellcaster unit.

Information

Don't build too many Faerie Dragons. Some players go overboard and build way more than they need and don't have enough troops. Sometimes four is about all you need. In smaller games you might only need 2-3. In very large games you might even want five or six. Just don't build too many. You can experiment until you can figure out what is the ideal amount.

Patch changes

Patch 1.10 (07/01/2003)
  • Mana Flare has had a bug fixed that was preventing multiple Mana Flares from
attacking multiple targets at the same time. As a result, Mana Flare has
been rebalanced, and deals up to 90 damage to targets in a 250 area when a
unit casts a spell, down from 125 damage.
Patch 1.14 (01/07/2004)
  • Mana Flare area-of-effect damage radius reduced to 200 from 250.
Patch 1.15 (05/11/2004)
  • Mana Flare splash damage no longer harms units that lack a mana pool.
Patch 1.17 (09/20/2004)
  • Damage increased to 14-16 from 13-14.
