Frequently asked questions

Is the Warlock Stand-Alone coming soon?
The Warlock stand-alone is currently on hold since we are working on a Dota 2 Warlock mod "Warlock Brawl".

Why is it named Warlock Brawl instead of Warlock?
Several other games go by the name "Warlock". We wanted a more unique nick which is more likely to show if you google it.

Who is developing the Warlock Brawl mod?
Toraxxx (
- Assisting developer of the original Warlock.
- Lead developer of the Dota mod
Adynathos (
- Developer of the original Warlock and lead developer of the stand-alone.
- Working with physics engine, systems, platform tech
Zymoran (
- Developer of the original Warlock.
- Working with game concept, modeling/textures, shop tech

Is the Warlock Brawl mod based on the original Warlock map?
Yes. In fact, we even transfer the exact game balance (spells, movement speed, etc) from WC3 to the DotA 2 mod - the parameters that the warlockbrawl community has decided over the last 6 years.
There will also be improvements, new spells/items and new features.

The Warlock Brawl mod seems unfinished and boring
It took a very long time for the WC3 version to reach a reasonable gameplay. It will take a while for the Dota 2 mod as well (the Warlock Brawl project was launched in July 2014 for reference).

Can I help?
Just like for the WC3 Warlock map, we also rely on your feedback to improve the Warlock Brawl gameplay.
Try the mod and tell us (post here or by email) what you think could be improved. At this stage, we are specifically looking for any negative aspects which causes the game to feel different from the original Warlockl

Is the WC3 Warlock map still being developed?
Yes, and version 1.01 is expected to be released very soon.

Awww rip,I see where are you coming from, i especially adore time shift and the counterplays against it... especially when u play it with tether haha

I chose not to add Time Shift because to me personally it feels annoying to play against and playing with it didn't feel very fun either. Phoenix was removed from the Wc3 version because a lot of people complained about it so I didn't consider it yet. I might decide to add them some time in the future but right now I'm only working on this mod when I have some motivation :)

Also any plans on adding time shift (the spell that was like weaver ultimate) and the phoenix rush down?

Experienced a crash when fireball hit a splitter projectile before it split. Not sure if accident or not.

Good thing, I though I am the only one experiencing this. I uninstalled my Antivirus because of this.
