Introduction

World of Warcraft (WoW) is the most popular MMORPG today, hands down. With over 11 million subscribers worldwide, any expansion that Blizzard churns out will be a sure hit. The Burning Crusade (TBC) proves this not only because of the WoW name attached to it but because of the countless improvements and features it introduced to the MMORPG genre.

Now that Wrath of the Lich King is out, we can safely say that it's going to be just as, if not more, successful that TBC. If BlizzCon 2008 is any indication, hordes (and Alliances) are already lining up in droves to get their hands on the second biggest expansion to WoW. Wrath aims to further raise the bar on MMORPG quality and we're here to take an in-depth look at what's in store for gamers..


What is Wrath of the Lich King?

Wrath of the Lich King is the second expansion to the hit massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), World of Warcraft. Preceded by The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King (or Wrath/WotLK) ushers in a new chapter of the epic Warcraft story. Mysterious plagues, the rise of the undead Scourge, and ominous Ziggurats wreak havoc on the population as the warring factions Alliance and Horde battle for supremacy. At the center of this chaos is the Lich King Arthas, on his icy throne in the harsh, cold region of Northrend. The corrupted paladin will once again shake the world and set forth a wave of death and destruction to eliminate all life on Azeroth.

In true World of Warcraft fashion, Wrath brings a solid story based on the deep and intriguing Warcraft lore, starting from the events that took place in Warcraft III. Players can now enter the lands of Northrend and encounter monsters, challenges, gain items, WoW Gold, new quests, and even face the Lich King himself. This is an experience that can only be described in one word- epic.


New Features in Wrath of the Lich King

A World of Warcraft expansion wouldn't be complete without exciting new features and great content. Let's take a peek at what's in new.


Death Knight

The new hero class, the Death Knight, will be introduced in Wrath. They were former servants of the Lich King, now aligning themselves with the Alliance and the Horde. These necromantic warriors have both tanking and DPS capabilities with some magic mixed in.


Level cap 80

The Burning Crusade enabled players to reach level 70. Now, players can quest, earn WoW Gold, rewards, and level up to level 80 and conquer the frozen wastes called...


Northrend

The brand new area in World of Warcraft where the Lich King Arthas resides. Brave adventurers who step into these lands will be facing against the evil scourge, the armies of the Lich King and soon face Arthas himself. New areas, dungeons, items, WoW Gold and creatures await all who dare enter.


Wintergrasp

A huge map located in the wastes of Borean Tundra and the Great Dragonblight is Wintergrasp- the new open world PvP area where players can participate in epic sieges and action-packed combat. Use siege vehicles to assault your opponents or defend your structures against the invading faction in this new area.


New Dungeons

Utgarde Keep, The Nexus, Azjol'Nerub, The Violet Hold, Gun'drak, Ulduar, and Utgarde Pinnacle are just some of the new dungeons/instances introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. 5 and 10 man raids also gain new features to provide more flexibility for raid groups. Obtain powerfully gear, WoW Gold, and raid with your friends.


Creatures

Fearsome creatures lurk in the wastes of Northrend. Encounter challenging new monsters and find out how to take them on. Maybe get a few rares and WoW Gold in the process.


Mounts

We all know that mounts are always a good addition to World of Warcraft. That's why in Wrath, Blizzard has added a few new exotic and rare mounts to the list. Epic flying mounts and even multi-passenger mounts await us! Prepare for adventure (and a whole lot of WoW Gold) to collect all the mounts!


New Items

Of course, one of the main goals of raid groups, questers, and all players are the rare and epic gear that you can get. Wrath of the Lich King doesn't disappoint with all the shiny new gear and items you can get. We'll help you get the best chance of obtaining these epics and even gain some WoW Gold in the process.


New profession - Inscription

Introduced in the Echoes of Doom 3.02 content patch, Inscription is a new profession that allows players to create glyphs that can enhance skills and abilities. Glyphs can be sold for WoW Gold and potentially make good money for the would-be scribe.
