*** Frozen Throne's Orc campaign gives you a new GameBreaker every time you kill a new monster. Here, have a shield that boosts stats while setting enemies on fire, or a hat that shoots lightning, or a stick that summons reinforcements while making your allies go faster, or a free ChainLightning spell, or a healing item that amounts to a fountain of health following you around...

The biggest one, however, comes in chapter 2, where the shop at your main base sells relatively cheap Necklaces of Spell Immunity. Slap these on your entire party, and the rest of the campaign becomes a complete cakewalk.


Added DiffLines:

* GoddamnedBats: Due to its playstyle, ''Frozen Throne's'' bonus campaign has a few of these:
** Centaurs, mainly because you end up fighting so damn many of them. Particular standouts include Firecallers, who can deal a fair bit of damage with Flame Strike, and Deathcallers, who can revive other centaurs.
** Harpy Storm-hags cast Sleep to put your heroes out of action and Curse to make them miss half their attacks. They're not dangerous by any stretch of the imagination, but fighting them gets tedious very quickly.

* ThatOneSidequest: For the bonus ''Frozen Throne'' campaign, recruiting Chen Stormstout to the group can be somewhat troublesome if you try to complete his {{Sidequest}} as early as possible when your heroes are hardly leveled and decked out on items. To explain, the {{Sidequest}} that Chen offers Rexxar requires him to collect three items that need to be returned to Chen. Two of such items are incredibly easy to complete as one is just to pick up a Thunderbloom plant at a nearby camp of incredibly weak Murlocs, while the second is to purchase a barrel of Thunderwater from a Horde vendor. However, the third item of the {{Sidequest}} is the difficult part; [[DemonicSpiders having to fight through an area of thunder phoenixes]] [[BossInMookClothing in order to loot the Thunder Egg from the biggest one]]. The reason of the difficulty is that you only have Rexxar and Rokhan to fight these phoenixes, and these phoenixes hit incredibly hard with powerful magic-type attacks that not only have area-of-effect damage, but can also burn over time, which will easily leave your heroes' health down in the red after every engagement. Also, they're flying units, so Rexxar's bear, Misha, ends up being useless for this fight if your group has no means to force the phoenixes to the ground.

to:

* ThatOneSidequest: ThatOneSidequest:
** As mentioned above in ThatOneLevel, the {{Sidequest}} for ''March of The Scourge'' on Hard mode is almost impossible to complete as you would need to take a small army out with your Paladin hero to take out a Meat Wagon escort, even though those units you sent out would be much more useful had they just stayed at the base for the primary HoldTheLine mission.

*** The last mission in the "Sylvanas Windrunner" story arc ''"A New Power In Lordaeron"'' can hurt your brain on Hard. What makes it painful is the Undead in the main city at the center is protected by Burning Legion demons as well as Balnazzar himself (A Dreadlord hero on crack). The main army will repeatedly send powerful summons to Garithos's Alliance army to distract you from planning your attack. After demolishing the support camps on the edge of the map, you'll likely attempt to assault the capital with both of your armies, only to see that the Undead army and the Burning Legion support can easily turn your troops to bloody goop. After a few hours of failing, you may then realize that it is [[GuideDangIt best to teleport your Alliance army over to your own Undead one]] (or vice versa, but don't forget to recruit the dwarves before this) for a steamroller attack, but even this does not make the assault easy.

** For the seventh mission of the Orc campaign, "The Oracle," Thrall comes across a trap set by Jaina's sorceresses where a group of sheep suddenly become footmen, and attack Thrall's group. However, due to a few broken triggers, some of the sheep will spawn as Neutral footmen that will just stand there, and not do anything; making an already easy trap to defeat an absolute joke.
