Most things in World of Warcraft stem from these.

Project Scope

The scope of this project is to improve the articles of all units and buildings that appeared in the Warcraft RTS games and show how they tie in to World of Warcraft.

Add to all relevant pages.

Content should be listed in the order it was in the manuals (Not alphabetically), linked to the article with a correct name per WP:NAME but with a piped link to the name as shown in the relevant game.

Warcraft III units are currently listed as they were in the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos manual, followed by the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne manual additions, and then other units listed on


Add to all above unit pages.


Adobe copies of all RTS manuals can be found at Replacementdocs if needed.

Note that if a section of text cited from an RTS manual is oddly indented, it was likely copied from here.

Add to all above pages.

Image sources

The following are sources, both internal and external, where relevant images can be found. Most needed images are already uploaded onto WoWWiki.

Add to all above pages.


All pages should have the info from all applicable manuals with citation, an in-game (just the model preferred) image from all applicable games (RTS and WoW), any relevant info from the RPG books (like the Alliance Player's Guide), any artwork that can be found (focusing on the RTS manuals, but not going crazy), a statistics link (or optional statistics section in some form), the addition of {{WC3UnitBox}} to Warcraft III units, the applicable navboxes, a link or links to the unit's quotes (if the subject talks), and a section dedicated to how the unit/building appears in or relates to World of Warcraft.

Named heroes from Warcraft II and important WoW topics like Classes are listed in the navboxes, but do not count for this (the statistics page is enough for those), unless some form of disambiguation is created. This project is geared more towards the WCIII multiplayer due to the complexity of the neutral units in that game, but unique or single-player units can be touched on a bit.

All pages are not being completed en masse because, while there are groups of consistent pages, there is no overall consistency because of the varying appearances of these subjects, so a complex overall boilerplate may be needed.

The "Status (units)" and "Status (buildings)" sections below are for keeping track of what needs to be done and what has been done to pages in this project. If a page has been changed, or if you feel a page needs to be changed, feel free to log it.

  • Add more 'In World of Warcraft' sections.
  • As per this, when dealing with subjects whose names contain 'X of Y' or 'X of the Y', both X and Y are capitalized. NOTE: This is subject to change.
