- Expansion: WotLK Classic
During an interview between Asmongold and Ion Hazzikostas the question came up around what could come next after WotLK Classic finishes out it’s content phases and reaches the end of the expansion.
Ion was up front that Blizzard is really looking to the community to provide helpful recommendations around what they would like to see and that everything is on the table. We’ve added a transcript below of the relevant part of the interview.
Next thing I was wondering about is the uh, what do you think is going to happen now Wrath of the Lich King Classic is coming out. Obvious Wrath of the Lich King is going to run its course, then what?
Um, yes at this point I’d love to hear from you, from the community as a whole, what you want to come next. We have a playerbase that really has made Classic their home and the people who have carried their characters forward from Classic into Burning Crusade and likely into Wrath beyond that. And when that comes to an end, when you defeat the Lich King, or sorry when you actually kill Halion the ultimate end boss in Wrath of the Lich King.
Do you want to start over, do you want to try a different version of that, do you want to carry that character forward into a new adventure. I know Cataclysm, for many people was like “ah that’s the beginning of the end and I’m out”.
It was a world revamp yeah.
I’d ask like, an interesting question is maybe: what is it about Cataclysm you don’t like. Was it the heroic dungeons, was Firelands a bad raid, is Twilight Highlands a bad zone? Is that the problem or was it, I don’t know, LFR and dungeon finder from the start and removing group quests from the world or whatever else or compressing the talent trees.
What would it look like if you had Cata content with some changes? Lots of stuff is on the table, we really welcome that discussion now that the fact were doing Wrath is no longer the worlds worst kept secret.
