WoW is currently the game that’s eating up my time (as it has been for quite a while now…) I have a level 80 warrior, a 70 druid, a 65 mage, a 50 priest and some misc. nobodies I don’t play. Just in case anyone is interested, I play on the Horde side on the Alexstraza server.
The new Wrath of the Lich King expansion is absolutely amazing. I’m extremely impressed by how much Blizzard has been able to reinvigorate the game. Every other MMORPG expansion I’ve ever seen has ultimately just been more of the same, but Wrath is an outright experience.
Without a doubt, the most impressive thing they’ve added is ‘phasing’. Its essentially instancing that can be applied to anything. Two players can be in the same area yet see different things. Yeah, this definitely can be confusing when applied to a multiplayer game, but when used in moderation, it can do a lot of overcome the ‘you never actually accomplish anything’ problem that plagues MMOs. Now, when you rescue someone, you’ll actually see them there in town, safe and happy. Definitely a major improvement over the old system where you rescue someone, only to see them vanish and reappear back in the cage where you first found them.
Anyway, here’s some screenshots of fun and interesting things I’ve seen in Wrath.
