As the new expansion ticks closer news is coming out left and right. New patch notes on the PTR etc. I can smell the smoldering ruins of Azeroth from here! So what am I most excited about in the upcoming expansion?
- New Rogue Talent Tree
I have always thought that Blizzard went a little to crazy with each expansion. To many extra levels, to much increase in stats, damage, etc. I think bringing talents back down and making each tree more meaningful is a great start. Also only raising the level cap to 85! Another pro move that I can get behind.
- Heroic: Deadmines!
One of my favorite dungeons of all time was when I was on my first Alliance Rogue! Being able to run a Heroic Deadmines has got so excited I made a mess in my leather pants.
- Rated Battlegrounds
While I am not very good at Arena Combat I do enjoy it and think its a very good system. I am definitely excited for Rated battlegrounds if not a bit apprehensive. I can see it now… [2: Trade] LFM Rated Battlegrounds PST GS / Spec / Achievement / Exp / Credit Score!
- Guild Levels and Achievements
Adding Depth to an MMO is a good thing. Guild Levels and Achievements is a great idea. I can see entire new guilds springing up around the sole purpose of reaching these achievements. Adding more utility and value to the guild system is definitely needed. Maybe it will be more then a glorified chat channel / extra bank tab now!
- Zul’Gurub Being Removed!
Yep thats right… I am very excited about this. I just hope its executed right. I hope ZG is taken completely out… With out any of the mounts ever being obtainable again! Yea I am that ass that wants his Swift Zulian Tiger to become even more rare! Why? Because I need to validate my existence in this game and its one of the few ways I can laud it over others by whipping my tiger out.
Granted this is not the whole list! But its a good start. I really am looking forward to this expansion and revitalizing RogueSpot with it! WotLK has been out for so long that everything is stale. All the valid styles of play have been determined, all the bosses killed and achievements reached. Writing about any of it just gets you pointed and laughed at.
