Battle For Azeroth Expansion, Level Scaling In All Zones, And Vanilla Servers

Share

Classic, which is now in development at Blizzard, is an attempt to replicate the feeling of playing the original World of Warcraft - though not necessarily how it played right at launch. But shortly after that, Blizzard launched the idea of "pristine worlds", something described similarly to vanilla realms, and then a few days after that the heads of the World of Warcraft team and the heads of Blizzard invited the developers behind the Nostalrius servers to private discussions.

Players will explore the Zandalar empire and the home of Jaina Proudmoore, Kul Tiras.

KitGuru Says: Considering Blizzard has had the demand there for quite a while, it's about time that it explored a legacy server of its own. "World of Warcraft players are incredibly passionate about the characters and factions they identify with in the game, and this expansion will make them prouder than ever to declare their allegiance to the Horde or to the Alliance". As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth's heroes must set out on a harrowing journey in search of new allies, race to claim the world's mightiest resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.

Battle for Azeroth will have a new level cap of 120 with a purchasable boost of 110. Battle for Azeroth reignites the war between the Alliance and Horde factions as tensions grow beyond tolerance between Warchief Sylvanas and freshly crowned King Anduin. Players will be able to create new characters in the new races, which for the Horde include the Nightborne, Highmountain Tauren, and Zandalari Trolls.

Well, Blizzard has relented: at the annual BlizzCon event in California, which is taking place this weekend, WoW executive producer J. Allen Brack told the crowd that classic servers are making a comeback. Gamers will explore these islands with up to two other players, but no two experiences will be the same; even when players visit the same island twice, they will find new challenges and missions. "Battle for Azeroth will call on you to rally in support of the mighty Horde".

Game director Ion Hazzikostas took center stage to break the good news and explain a little bit about how it will work for those that may have skipped out on the latest expansion.
