The term avatar refers to many different things in both game mechanics and Warcraft lore.
Avatar spells and abilitiesEdit
- Warcraft III, Avatar was the name of an ability for the Mountain King hero that temporarily turned him to stone.
- Activate Avatar to temporarily give the Mountain King 5 bonus armor, 500 bonus hit points, 20 bonus damage and spell immunity.
- In World of Warcraft, Vanndar Stormpike and Magni Bronzebeard have this ability, but it is less powerful.
- Increases the Physical damage dealt by the caster by 50% and enhances their armor by 50% for 15 sec.
- In the Warcraft RPG, Avatar is a spell used by powerful sorcerers, wizards, mages, and priests of any race, as well as a dwarven mountain king ability.
- Upon casting this spell, a mage or priest becomes a fighting avatar of his ideals. The caster screams a war cry as he grows in size and strength. His flesh hardens. His skin, clothing and all his possessions become a dimly luminous silver-gray. His mindset changes so that he relishes combat. He loses his spellcasting ability, including his ability to use spell activation or spell completion magic items, just as if the spells were no longer on his class list. He gains enhancement bonuses to Strength, Stamina, and Agility. His armor increases, and so does his spell resistance. He becomes proficient with all simple and martial weapons. He doubles in height and increase in weight.
- Note: The mountain king's avatar ability is seperate from the mountain king's stoneflesh ability. The latter ability is learned later.
