BlizzCon 2009 Wrap Up

These show notes are for Episode 2 of The Warcraft Syndicate Copyright 2009.


Segment 1 – This week in WoW

Holy carp, there was a lot of WoW stuff happening at Blizzcon this year. Here are the high points:

1. Cataclysm – Confirmed
2. Class/race combinations – Confirmed
3. Worgen/Goblins – Confirmed
4. Old World Changes – Holy crap – but confirmed
5. Level cap 85 – Confirmed

And on top of the stuff that was confirmed – TONS of new things (for lack of a better term) happening with the 3rd expansion to our favorite game.

Archaeology – New secondary Profession!
Reforging – New Gear customization.
Path of the Titans – in combination with Archaeology, a way to further progress your character within the game.
Guild Leveling, Guild Acheivements and Guild Talent points
• New Dungeons and raids – Deadmines and Shadowfang Keep now have HEROIC modes – chock full of Awesome.
• Major changes in the Terrain of Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms. One thing to note – once Cataclysm hits, you wil NOT be able to quest in Vanilla WoW, the change is for EVERYONE, regardless of class, race or level.
7 New Zones added to the Old World, Twilight Highlands, Mount Hyjal, Deepholm, Uldum, Gilneas, The Lost Isles, Sunken City of Vash’jir
• Rated BG’s for Arena Points!
• Cross Server Instances – PUG any instance with players over different servers! (Coming in 3.3.0!)
• And a personal fave – hunter Ammo will no longer be a consumable, and the fishing mechanic will likely change
