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

Skeleton Warriors are mindless automatons that can be summoned forth by Necromancers to fight for the Scourge. While not the sturdiest of fighters, they are tenacious melee attackers.

They can also be encountered as creeps in the Dungeon, Underground and Northrend tilesets.

Information

Skeletons last 40 seconds without Skeletal Longevity. Make sure you research Skeletal Longevity to gain an additional 15 seconds, making Skeleton Warriors last as much as 55 seconds.

You can build Graveyards, which produce corpses, and place Necromancers around them. When you are being attacked you can use the Necromancers to raise the Corpses to provide Skeleton Warriors to defend the town.

You can use the Meat Wagon to pick up corpses and carry them into battle. Unload the Corpses, then use Necromancers to raise them into Skeleton Warriors.

There is a maximum limit of 25 Skeleton Warriors that can be summoned by a player.

Be sure to research melee and armor upgrades to make the Skeleton Warriors more effective.
