Blizzard's Wrath of the Lich King Presentation

Earlier in the week, journalists from across the world were invited to attend a Wrath of the Lich King presentation at Blizzard's offices in Irvine, California. Once there, we were shown Northrend in its current state of development, a Death Knight in action, given several hours to play the expansion for ourselves, and were also permitted interview sessions with three of Blizzard's top developers - J. Allen Brack, Jeff Kaplan and Tom Chilton.

Some of the amazing new facts that have come from this are:

* All 25 man raids in Wrath will also be available to complete with 10 players. This is so that more players will get to see end game content (Even the Arthas encounter will be available as a 10 man raid).

* There will be completely different loot tables for the two different raid types. They will also be on separate cool downs, so players could fight in both the 10 man and 25 man raid on the same day if they wish.

* The mounts available to buy in Wrath will probably be able to take passengers. These mounts will also work in the old world (Provided they are land mounts), so players can give low-level characters a ride! The new mounts will also be slightly faster, around the speed of the Armored Netherdrakes.

* All 5-man instances in Northrend will feature Heroic modes, and the loot tables for the 2 modes will be totally separate. Heroic dungeons will have their own "Tier" of armor completely unique to that level dungeon.

Pillions sound great. Movie is pretty good too, a long one for a change.

But are there all new stripper dances for the dark elves? Get to the important stuff in the bullet points, please. :)

My main reason for continuing to play WoW is the lore and playing the game with a small band of friends, so 10-man raids seems to me to be the biggest, and BEST change. The mounted combat stuff sounds really cool to.

I can't wait to get to flying mounts but I find it hard to level past 60

KeiZka3869d ago

it's supposed to be hard... like leveling again from 0-60.

Great, now I won't just be having level ones begging to for gold, they'll be expecting a lift to wherever they desire as well :P
