Here we are with one week to go left in Azeroth before the Dark Portal opens and millions of players enter the world of the Burning Crusade. Normally in my editorials I question Blizzard’s choices in game play and call attention to the issues in Warcraft. However with only one week to go before the first expansion of the biggest MMO in the world, I thought we’d look at what to do with our last days in the old realm before the new one is to open. Here are some suggestions on how to spend your final week in Azeroth.
That being said, I am looking forward to the Burning Crusade. Not as much as I am looking forward to some other upcoming MMOs, but there still are some fun elements to this expansion. The Caverns of Time looks very interesting in that you’ll be able to see different parts of Warcraft’s past. I am psyched for the part when you help Thrall. Also Outland does have some unique features and designs to it that will only enhance the game. I do hope Blizzard gets the instance dungeons back to normal so you don’t need giant raids to get good gear and the playing field is better equaled between casual and hardcore players. But for that we’ll just have to wait and see.
So when January sixteenth roles around and everyone is trying to log in at once with queues in the thousands and crashes galore, just remember that it’s only a game and the race to level seventy will be longer than you think. For now, I ask all the Warcraft players, what will you be doing over the next week to get ready for The Burning Crusade?
