This article contains lore taken from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

Peasants are trained from the hard-working and stout-hearted citizens that live in the numerous kingdoms of Lordaeron. By mining gold and harvesting lumber to meet the ever-increasing needs of the fighting force which must push back the unrelenting Horde, they are the backbone of the Alliance. Trained not only in the construction and maintenance of the myriad buildings found in every community, but also those necessary to wage war, they take great pride in the invaluable service they provide. Roused by tales of the Orcish atrocities in Azeroth, these Peasants have learned to use both pick and axe for their own defense if threatened.[1]

Information

  • Peasants are used to mine gold and harvest lumber, and to build and repair buildings and Transports.
  • Peasants move significantly slower when carrying gold or lumber.
  • While their default reaction to being attacked is to flee, they can be ordered to fight. While weak, they can sometimes bring down enemy units through weight of numbers, and even a lone Peasant can destroy an undefended Catapult given time.

Attack Peasants

  • Attack Peasants are a special type of non-buildable unit that can only be added to a map using third-party map editors (the one that comes with the game cannot do it).
  • They have the same stats as normal Peasants and are visually indistinguishable, but cannot gather resources, or build or repair buildings. They lack an attack button, but their default right-click action is to attack. They will also attack automatically if threatened, just like military units.
  • They appear in two Human campaign missions: first in Tyr's Hand as enemies, representing the local peasant uprising, and then in The Prisoners, representing Alterac prisoners that the player must escort to the Circle of Power at Stratholme.
