Far Seers are ancient Orcs who represent the pinnacle of Shamanistic power. These powerful Shamans are counted amongst Thrall's closest advisors and are constantly in tune with the workings and maneuverings of the Horde. Far Seers are not only tied to the elements of the earth and sky, but are also adept at foretelling the future.
- Chain Lightning is a very powerful spell. Far Seers should research it and use it whenever possible. Use Chain Lightning especially against ranged units and spellcasters.
- Chain Lightning will now jump to sleeping targets if the primary target is also asleep.
- Use Feral Spirits at the start of the game to help you attack the Creeps.
- Send two Feral Spirits in separate directions and use them to scout enemy towns for their location and race. As the Spirit Wolf enters the town attack their buildings or workers. If the enemy isn't smart they may even teleport back to their town to defend it.
- Use Earthquakes on large groups of towers, typically created at the end of the game.
- Earthquakes can be used to clear away large sections of trees.
- Earthquake brings units to a minimum speed of 140. Earthquake does not slow air units. Earthquake's slow area is 250 (2500 in-game).
