    (From the blue text):

    *The dark, necromatic Death Knight - the first new character class added to World of Warcraft since its launch.
    *Northrend, the harsh, icy continent where the Lich King holds rule, complete with new zones, quests, items and monsters.
    *New level cap of 80 providing access to mighty new powers and talents
    *New battlegrounds featuring siege engine warfare and destructable buildings
    *Expanding character customisation options including new hairstyles & dances, the ability to change the hairstyles of existing characters, and new skin color variants.


    -----------

    I feel bad for people continuing to play that game. Their gear and progress will become obsolete faster than WoW to The Burning Crusade, and most players will never experience Hyjal/Black Temple. Such a shame.

    As far as Lore, this is supposed to be the "last" expansion. Now I'm praying to God they announce Diablo III today.

    I posted about this in the "Do I see Diablo?" thread.

    The death knight is a hero class, you get it after acheiving certain things with a different class, probably warrior and/or paladin. They gave hints about the death knight hero class before the burning crusade came out too. Did they announce a date for this expansion? I imagine it wont be until most players have exhausted all or most of the burning crusade content.

    Just like Naxx shit got faded out completely by lvl65. They're killing the game. Sadly most will still play it.

    They need to announce Diablo 3 today.. This "Team 3" we've been hearing about better give us some info. I don't care what genre game it'll be (2D/MMORPG/FPS), I will play it.

    Of course the items have to scale with level. I never understood why people were so mad when the BC came out and their old items were no good. The same thing happens when you go up in level anytime in the game. I guess most people got too used to being 60 and thought their items were going to be good forever.

    WoW revolves completely around gear though. No matter what you do in that game, everything and anything you do is further enhancement of your character through gear. I can understand how it worked from WoW to BC, as it was a 3 year old game by then.

    But most guilds are still caught in Serpentshrine Cavern or The Eye at this point, and will probably not see Hyjal Summit or Black Temple by the time WotLK comes out. And if they do, they won't have that gear for very long.

    I won't. I've sold two accounts now, I'm sure I'm on Blizzard's blacklist. All for the better though, I really can't get into that shit a third time.

    I have a 70 Tauren Warrior. I stopped playing 3 months ago. Its not worth it, like you guys have mentioned, its all about gear. I don't want to grind for gear any more.

    If I still had a lvl70, I really wouldn't mind checking out some of the new areas. Northrend is HUGE when it comes to lore.

    But there's no real end-game goal anymore. The game keeps getting pushed back and the sad thing is, people will ALWAYS play this game. Always. They could completely screw the game up (like they're doing) and the loyals will always play it.
