I should be getting the expansion next week, but I won't be able to touch the endgame for a while (I'm only lv71)
Some of us had review deadlinesMatt_LRR said:BAW. I seriously considered staying on longer and making some progress in deepholm.John Funk said:Haha, literally about thirty seconds after you logged off.Matt_LRR said:Yeesh. when did you hit 85? I'm pretty sure you were 84 when I logged off last night, and that was at like 4AM your time. (and I'm pretty sure you were still online :| ) Go to sleep dude.
Oh well - some of us had real jobs they had to get to this morning.
Edit: incidentally, disappointed that my name didn't pop up in your chat log during the video review
I started two months ago, and I made a different guy to play through the old content anew. I'm now spoiled because I expect a new story every month.omicron1 said:So.... as someone who never played through the original game, am I just going to be confused if I start in on this one? Will I be lost by references to events in the Burning Crusade or Lich King? Will there be tons of internal references to quests that happened in pre-Cataclysm Azeroth?John Funk said:Cataclysm completely replaces the old world of Warcraft whether you purchase the expansion or no.omicron1 said:@ the end music: I knew you were going to pull that one, even before you mentioned "appropriate music."
Also, aaaugh! Earworm!
Anyway. Can anyone tell me if the storyline from the original WoW is still there? Has this Cataclysm completely destroyed the old storyline of WoW? And if so, is it confusing to someone who's never played through the game? (I only ever got as far as the exit to the undead starting region, and now I'm worried about endless in-jokes and story references I just wouldn't get.)
In other words, is the game more or less approachable from a story standpoint now that they've gone and redone everything?
Phasing was actually first used during Burning Crusade, to fix a couple quests in Blade's Edge. I thought it was awesome at the time, I can't believe it took Blizzard so long to figure out how to utilize it.Blizzard has liberally applied the phasing technology - changing the zone as player completes quest to reflect their deeds . It was introduced in Wrath and used to great effect here, making for a much more significant feeling of progression and time than we've seen in an MMO yet.

He yelled it out in vanilla WoW, I remember it all to well after so many attempts until a Perditions Blade finally dropped.Zombus said:Did anyone else see the Ragnaros looking dude say "by fire be purged"? Now, I'm not familiar enough with vanilla wow to know if they used it first, but are they actually referencing unforgotten realms right there?
