Tide of Darkness Horde Campaign


This is the first Orc Campaign in Warcraft II cronologically and also (obviously) the easier of the two campaigns. If you're playing on the Playstation 1 the Horde faction is worse than the Alliance faction since you can't make use of the Ogre-Magi Bloodlust as much as you could ont he PC. It's recommended that true beginners do the Alliance campaign first.


1. Zul'Dare

2. Raid at Hillsbrad

3. Southshore

4. Assault on Hillsbrad

5. Tol Barad

6. The Badlands

7. The Fall of Stromgarde

8. The Runestone at Caer Darrow

9. The Razing of Tyr's Hand

10. The Destruction of Stratholme

11. The Dead Rise as Quel'Thalas Falls

12. Tomb of Sargeras

13. The Seize of Dalaran

14. The Fall of Lordaeron


Tide of Darkness Alliance Campaign


This is the first Alliance Campaign in Warcraft II and is without a doubt the easiest set of missions in the game. If you're playing on the PS1 and not on a computer, it's recommended you start here since you can make more use of the Paladin's Heal ability. It makes the game a lot easier in my opinion.

1. Hillsbrad

2. Ambush at Tarren Mill

3. Southshore

4. Attack on Zul'Dare

5. Tol Barad

6. Dun Algaz

7. Grim Batol

8. Tyr's Hand

9. The Battle At Darrowmere

10. The Prisoners

11. Betrayal and the Destruction of Alterac

12. The Battle at Crestfall

13. Assault on Blackrock Spire

14. The Great Portal


Beyond the Dark Portal Horde Campaign

The game takes a big jump in difficulty for this campaign. If you haven't already played and beaten Tides of Darkness missions you will want to do them first so you can learn how to play.

1. Slayer of Shadowmoon

2. Skull of Guldan

3. Thunderlord and Bonechewer

4. The Rift Awakens

5. Dragons of Blackrock Spire

6. New Stormwind
