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

During the Third War, Thrall's forces combined the features of a blacksmith and a lumber mill to create the War Mill, which functions both as a drop-off point for peons carrying lumber and a place where improvements are researched.

In this structure, orc smiths and troll craftsmen work side-by-side to improve the weapons and armor of the Horde armies. The attack and armor upgrades researched here affect grunts, headhunters, tauren, raiders, wyverns, and catapults.[1]

An invention of the crafty trolls, this structure maximizes potential by serving as a mill for lumber as well as a forge for weapons smithing. Here weapons and armor are tirelessly reworked for maximum efficiency. Trolls here can also create one of their most useful fortifications: spiked barricades.[2]
