PAL(Paladin) as Hum the 1st hero is one of tendency when vsing UD.
Now I summarize some warcraft 3 strategy about this play style.

Match maps: EI,TS and 1on1 maps
Match races:UD
The 1st hero: PAL
Hero ability: 1.Holy Light -2.Divine Shield -3.Holy Light -4.Divine Shield -5.Holy Light
Build order: Altar - Barracks -Lumber Mill -another base -Shop -Blacksmith -Workshop -Gryphon Aviary.
Main units: Siege Engine,Flying Machine,Knight,Gryphon Rider.

Tactic processes:

The first stage:

Four peasants harvest gold,one build the Altar at this same time training more peasants,the 6th build Farm,the 7th build Barracks,the 8th set up Farm,the 9th go to harvest gold,then 10 -13 peasants harvest timber ,then build 5 - 6 Footman.

Quickly clearing up the creeps guarding Mercenary Camps or Goblin Laboratory,when PAL is born.If it is all right
,PAL should be level 2.You could consider to buy some mercenaries to compare with UD.When UD run away,send your Footman and Militia to exploit another gold mine.Now PAL must be level 3,if not,creeping some little creeps to reach it.

It is the time to build Lumber Mill at main base,if lumber is not enough for the Militia creeping at early stage,you can buy a Goblin Shredder to help if the map have Goblin Laboratory.

The middle stage:

This stage is to defend your main base and the 2nd base.So build 3-4 towers is necessary,remember to upgrade a Arcane Tower and others is to Guard Tower.UD player must be constant harassing.Thus HUM must hold out till the tower and the second base is finished.When the tower and the 2nd base is over,Set up a shop at main base or your second base,upgrade level 1 city defense at Lumber Mill,and start to tech to tier 2.

Level 3 PAL armed with Boots of Speed,Potion of Invisibility and Staff of Teleportation is shocking for UD.PAL With Potion of Invisibility sneak into UD main base to kill Acolytes.You have level 2 Holy Light,cheers for this,ahahah.Kill Ghouls is a good idea too.At the same time,HUM have got to tier 2,build your Blacksmith,and go on building towers at main base and the second base till each have 7-9 towers .You always have to build towers to defend UD's harassment.

The development stage:

At the middle stage,If UD TP's,PAL can use Divine Shield or Staff of Teleportation to save oneself.Let him return to heal up and does those again and again.When have reached tier 2 ,don't hesitate to upgrade to tier 3 and summon the second hero MK (Mountain King).

PAL and MK two-Line action : PAL always harass and Mk with several units go to creep.At the half time of reaching tier 3,put down two or three Workshops and output Siege Engines or Flying Machines,at the same time upgrade Black Gunpowder to level 3.Once you have 3 Siege Engines upgrading Barrage as soon as possible.Researching level 3 city defense when you tech to tier 3.Ok let's build more and more Siege Engines till have 6-7.

The fighting in the late

Now let's look at our army,6-7 Siege Engines or two group of Flying Machines.If your elementary untis is less you can train several Knights and Gryphon Riders.but it is doesn't matter for the whole army.YOU! have level 3 attack and level 3 defense Siege Engine.Order them to destroy UD's main base.GG!


It is for sure that we have not enough lumber for we build 2-3 Workshops.So let your main base and the second base both have Lumber Mill and upgrade Lumber Harvesting and at least 8 peasants harvest lumber.If the map have the Goblin Laboratory, it is a good idea to buy a Goblin Shredder to help harvest lumber.

Tactic flaws:

1.Don't let your PAL drop dead,may be one death is the whole failed.
2.Know clear that whether your opponent mass destroyers,if right,massing more Towers is necessary or your second base will be fall.
