- Expansion: World of Warcraft
If you’re reading this it’s probably because you’ve heard tales that there’s info out there on the new World of Warcraft expansion called Vengeance of the Void.
Well, there is something out there but as normal I doubt it’s anything more than lies and fabrications …
I’ll let you familiarise yourself with the ‘supposed’ authentic letter first…
Right, did you enjoy that? For me there were two areas that proves this to be nonsense.
Naga as a playable race?
One quite noticeable thing about all the playable races so far is that they all have legs. One of the most obvious parts about Naga is that they don’t. So when it comes to the character meshes and armour graphics, this is going to be a nightmare. Do you leave them out altogether, or create some weird kind of dress/mini-skirt thing for the Naga to wear?
Something else to consider, mounts? Apart from their own mount, are there any other races mounts they could even use? It does put them at a slight advantage in regards to the mount achievements.
Also, two new races would make twelve playable races in total? I think the opposite would be more true. I would expect them to include a new hero class and not even more races.
The Starting zones
The Alliance starting zone is DeadwindPass? So, what happens if you don’t buy the expansion? Can you not get to Deadwind Pass anymore? How do you get to Kharazan? Will that just get removed? All the new expansion races have zones specifically created for them outside of the existing content. That way it doesn’t mess around with the existing game.
“Lots of new story content for Shadow Priests”
Blizzard will not provide content for one spec of a class, and not other classes or specs. If they did there would be a huge shift of people creating that class and spec, throwing whatever type of balance there might be in which characters are created completely on a tilt.
Of course, I could be completely wrong. Maybe this is exactly what will happen. Although it seems very early to be getting this type of information. I also can’t comment on the lore, for all I know it might be completely waterproof, I was never much of a lore buff. I’m also curious to know what’s on the other 15 pages too.
Make up your own decisions. At the end of the day, no matter what any of us decide, we’ll know when they want us to…
