I think the NE interface look cool.
And we see ballistas for the first time and some unknown spell of priestess.

i like the spirals at the bottom of the trunks on the NE interface. that's my favorite part. i may have to play as these buggers all the time to show my respect for the glory that is their interface.

Now we know the spell in the screenshot.

Quote:
<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">shlonglor, is that new PtoM skill Searing Light by any chance?

Searing Arrows. Very close. I didn't know that info was out.

shlonglor </font>

An other thing the footman is in defence mode.

And more screenshots are coming.

I noticed that too today. I have more shots of the Alliance being beat up as well so look forward
to those. I suspect the screenshot taker (that actually plays Humans a lot) enjoys setting those up =)

shlonglor </font>

Truly a fantastic shot! Wow, look at all those Huntresses!
It's really sweet how the wings of the Ballista fly out when they bolt shoots. They don't fly, Xenthar, the wings replace the giant bow design of regular ballistas(like those in WC2). The bird motif is really sweet-much better than a regular old Ballista. Very styelized.
The Priestess of the Moon is shooting her Searing Arrow spell as Jeltz mentioned(I thought it was Fire Arrow or something). Her avatar is pretty cool, but I think I would prefer a close-up shot. It's kinda funny that the shot of her in the upper-left corner is of her kitty. She is also slightly bigger than the Huntresses, though that may just be a visual effect trick because shes closer. Her inventory is rather sparse, all she posseses is a potion of some kind-a redesigned mana potion posibly?
That poor, poor Footman is totally fucked, too. Defending ain't gonna save you, little guy! Run for your life!! The peasant is, of course, next on the chopping block.
We can easily identify the 3 houses, 2 guard towers and a castle(or maybe a keep). But I'm not sure what the building in the lower right is. Probably an Armory.
Also, the tileset is very attractive. Very lush and vibrant.

The icon in the top left corner is shlongers at warcraftiii.com...
anyways I like everything except the ballista, personally i like the one in war2 better(i mean the design not the graphics)

EDIT: Im such a dope, I have just reliazed (with no bodies help) that the circle on top with the little dots around it that light up is the time of day...and the yellow sun looking thing in the middle is what it is (sunny or dark)

Is it just me, or do the Huntress' shields seem kinda blurry? I wonder if they're still working bugs out of their art?
But yeah, those ballistas kick ass! Look! They have wings and everything!

EDIT: That's odd. They look blurry when I open it up in photoshop.

I am definately, definately gonna buy this game.

The screen shot rocks. I doubt the balistas can fly, but the wings look cool.

Look at the POTM's damage. Pretty high for a level 2 spellcaster, wouldn't you say? Maybe they readjusted the damage scale, or maybe the NE just kick even more ass than I thought.

Nah, why wouldnt she be bigger? The blademaster is alot bigger than the grunt, and the paladin is alot bigger than the footman. Also there are huntresses that are closer to the camera than the priestess.

Those are Watch Towers, not Guard Towers.. we know what Guard Towers look like from the newest banshee screenshot, and from before that too. Yes, the castle is a castle.. we see a keep in the second latest Humans Under Fire screenshot. And Blizzard said that the Houses were now called Farms, although the things in those screenshots are NOT farms. Or are those crops growing on the roof?

Ignorance does not necessarily indicate stupidity, so fear not a spanking from me.
The little buildings mark out the neutral buildings. Such as Mercenary Camps or Merchant shops.

And Platon. I orignaly said castle, but then I saw that Warcraftiii.net called it a keep so I edited the possibilty that it was a keep. But then again, I hate Warcraftiii.net, so I'm sure they're wrong. Therefor it's a castle.

That's what I they said.

Both Ballistae are firing their deadly bolts, where the Priestess of the Moon has fired one of her magical arrows towards the same Keep.

That is one awesome looking castle.

I believe the castle has looked the same for many many months. Well it looks the same in the screenshot that you see on the http://www.blizzard.com/war3/movies page and this is from august i believe

I don't think that's a new spell.
Most likely they just changed the design of his transformation spell. If that's the case, I'm glad they did because it just looks better than the gay little paw icon like on the Blizzard site.
