Burning Crusade Preview - World of Warcraft -

Garrett Fuller spoke to Technical Game Designer Wyatt Chang on the floor of E3. During a private demonstration, Chang showed off the Burning Crusade, the new races (pictures included) and let us in on some new information.

Well as all of you know by now the new Alliance Race is the Draenei. More importantly we were able to learn a lot about both new races and some of the upcoming content to level seventy. Wyatt Cheng from Blizzard, a producer on World of Warcraft, met with Dana and me for a good thirty minute demo. It seems that Blizzard is starting to move the game into a better direction from the stagnant end game we are all playing now. First, let me go through the races and their abilities, classes, and professions. Then I will try to go through what is coming from level sixty to seventy. There were many questions asked, not all were answered, but the ones that were will have the answers here. The Burning Crusade is a highly anticipated expansion and looks to put Blizzard back on track from the level sixty end game.

Let us start with the Blood Elves. We have seen the pictures of the “pretty” Horde race, but what about the stats? The racial traits of the Blood Elves being with: a +15 to Enchanting, +5% resist to all magic, a mana tap ability, and something called Arcane Torrent which allows Blood Elves to AOE silence enemies for two seconds with a two minute cool down. The Arcane Torrent seems to be the most important ability which will frustrate players in PvP. The small boost in mana will be great for casters, but will also boost warrior Rage and rogue Energy. Speaking of classes, the Blood Elves will have: Warrior, Hunter, Rogue, Priest, Mage, and Warlock. Those are the character statistics; let’s look at the starting area.
