So, Blizzcon is upon us now. I subscribed to the web stream myself, and last night when I got home I watched the opening ceremony and the WoW preview panel. They announced, of course, the next WoW Expansion which is Cataclysm. So lets talk about what we know so far!
1. Revamped Azeroth – This has me interested greatly. Azeroth in and of itself has gotten stale for me. Boring. I know all the quests, I know all the zones. The hidden stuff. Playing for nearly 4 years will do that to ya. So I am interested to see how things are going to be “shook up”. Also they are redoing the quests and rewards, so that sounds interesting as well.
2. New Races – Ok now this has me going 0_o. Worgen? Really? I mean sure they are nice, I guess, but I still don’t really get it. It doesn’t make a whole lotta sense to be honest. Goblins are a little easier to understand simply because of the way gobbo society is setup, but its still a bit hard to swallow. I will play a Goblin though!
3. Race/Class Combos – Troll Druid. Tauren Paladin (HOLY COW!). Dwarf Shaman. Need I say more?
4. New Dungeons – Heroic SFK and Heroic Deadmines! Those sound entertaining!
5. Flight in Azeroth – This sounds boss. Plain and simple
I want to see more of the indepth panels tonight regarding classes and dungeons, but all in all its shaping up to be damn interesting. I really want to see if they can pull all this off. The new leveling up experience alone will be worth it I think. The only thing I don’t like are the whispers of Garrosh becoming Warchief and killing off Cairne. But I can deal I think if that is true.
