Event Details

  • On Friday evening Blizzard announced a seventh expansion for World of Warcraft called Battle for Azeroth. Headline features were Warfronts, Allied Races, character-level 120, and a couple of new zones: Zandalar and Kul Tiras. We were also briefly brought to a very important new medallion artifact, the Heart of Azeroth, that may power up other parts you wear. Everything was explained in depth in subsequent panels at BlizzCon 2017, which I've watched and unpacked below.

    Separately from the expansion, however (without any release date although next autumn is among the most earmarked arrival window), patch 7.3.5 will contain two key a new challenge: the beginnings of game-wide level-scaling, and also a preview of any new, dynamic control point PvP arena.

    Game-wide level-scaling adjusts enemies within minimum and maximum level boundaries for specific zones, helping secure the feel that some zones will be more deadly than the others.

    "If you are seasoned adventurer returning from your campaign in Northrend therefore you come back to Elwynn Forest and locate that the wolves and also the bandits you will still find an even match to suit your needs, that sort of undermines your progression," said game director Ion Hazzikostas in a very 'What's Next?' panel.

    "We're thinking of a structure a lot more: imagine Westfall scales from 10-60, imagine Burning Steppes scales from 40-60. You're never going to outlevel the zone as long as you're in it but there is however still some a feeling of progression, once you've moved beyond the entire expansion, one does feel like you could have surpassed it and you are definitely more powerful."

    This system allow you to tackle previous World of Warcraft expansions in the flexible order. Burning Crusade's Outland zone will scale from 60-80, as will Wrath in the Lich King's Northrend. Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria's content, meanwhile, will scale from 80-90. Dungeons and rewards will https://www.mmoah.com/warmane
