Sound SetPeasant

Peasants are trained from the hard-working and stout-hearted citizens that live in the numerous kingdoms of Lordaeron. By mining Gold and harvesting Lumber to meet the ever-increasing needs of the fighting force which must push back the unrelenting Horde, they are the backbone of the Alliance. Trained not only in the construction and maintenance of the myriad buildings found in every community, but also those necessary to wage war, they take great pride in the invaluable service they provide. Roused by the tales of the Orcish atrocities in Azeroth, these Peasants have learned to use both pick and axe for their own defenses if threatened.


Peasants cannot be upgraded but they can be converted to Militia.

Spells and Abilities

Repair (Autocast)

Peasants can repair Buildings and Mechanical Units automatically when Repair is enabled. Repairing costs Gold and Lumber. If you do not have enough Gold or Lumber you will not be able to repair.


Mines gold from gold mines and harvests lumber from trees.

Return Resources

Return the carried resources to the nearest town hall.

Build Structure

Brings up a list of the available buildings that you may choose to construct.

Peasants build on the outside of buildings. This means that the enemy can kill them while a building is being constructed to halt its construction. Command multiple Peasants to build a building if there is a risk they may be destroyed while a building is being created.

Peasants can create buildings much faster by commanding multiple Peasants to create a building. Simply select Peasants and right click on a building that is being constructed. The Peasants will move in and will speed up the construction of a building. It will cost additional resources to build a building faster and Peasants working on a building will not be gathering resources so it is not always a good idea to speed build. Only Peasants can speed build; the other races cannot speed build.

Call to Arms

Run to the nearest Town Hall to arm the Peasant, converting him into a Militiaman.
