Lord of the Clans 1.06 with new Chapter released!

First of all, Merry Christmas and (in case I don't post again until then) a Happy New Year!

No, this is not a copy-paste of last year. For the past months I was working on a new Chapter for my Warcraft 3 campaign Lord of the Clans. You get to play Thrall's past as a Gladiator and experience some of his memories of his youth.

This update also includes a massive number of bugfixes and additions to gameplay. They include:
- 3 new passive abilities Thrall will learn at Chapters 6-8
- New ultimate ability that will increase Thrall's life and damage for a short time
- Stats-bug fixed
- New models for Blackmoore, Langston and Tammis
- Better items
- Adjusted time for transmissions during cinematics
- Over 350 bugfixes and improvements to balance, gameplay and cinematics


The update can be downloaded from Hiveworkshop.com.

See below for a full list of changes:
