Moving beyond the D word
WIRED Magazine reports on the new World of Warcraft expansion, the trademarked “Cataclysm,” that will literally rock the foundations of beloved Azeroth – the home to millions of deeply devotional MMORPG gamers.
World of Warcraft fans have much to celebrate as Raimi’s unique mondo-movie style seems to translate well with what would normally be considered B-movie fare. The world of Azeroth, where the mythology and lore of the World of Warcraft unfolds is rich with characters, races, classes, gods and history. Thousands upon thousands of hours of gameplay and development offer an almost bottomless well of stories from which to draw ideas.
One of the things about World of Warcraft that Blizzard got right is how they manage balance the various classes (and when something gets too out of whack or unbalanced, a patch usually attempts to fix (nerf) it.) Another thing a good MMORPG needs is a balance between being able to play solo and to play in groups, guilds, parties and raids. Again, they tend to get this right more than most competitors. With the WotLK expansion release for World Of Warcraft the Death Knight class becomes available for anyone with a level 55 or above toon. The expansion also raises the level cap to 80 and allows for increases in class talent trees. This WoW Death Knight guide will deal with the best talent build for rapid solo leveling.
