World of Warcraft Classic will quickly be receiving the Wrath of the Lich King growth, one thing of a fan-favourite. As a part of this the game will open ‘Fresh Start’ servers for gamers who have not but been tempted again. These realms are supposed for gamers who need the expertise of beginning with a brand new character and enjoying alongside others who’re in the identical boat.
Players have been requesting Blizzard do that for a while, however Wrath of the Lich King is a vastly widespread piece of WoW’s historical past, and little doubt the developer expects it to tempt many ‘new’ in addition to lapsed Classic gamers.
The information was introduced in a blogpost by Blizzard CM Kaivax. The new realms will likely be “Wrath of the Lich King Classic realms from day one, so when they launch, they’ll have all of the talent trees and player abilities coming with Wrath of the Lich King Classic, but all players will start new characters at level 1.”
The Fresh Start realms additionally include sure situations, all of that are principally supposed to cease individuals boosting:
- For a minimum of 90 days, you’ll not be allowed to spice up a personality on Fresh Start realms.
- For a minimum of 90 days, Fresh Start realms won’t be obtainable locations for character transfers.
- Death Knights can’t be created on these realms with no stage 55 character on that very same realm.
All of the WoW Classic and Burning Crusade content material will likely be obtainable in these realms, whereas Northrend is locked on all servers till Wrath of the Lich King launches.
“Ultimately, we hope to see players spread out onto all of the available realms as Wrath of the Lich King Classic approaches,” writes Blizzard. “For players looking for a chance at faction balance, we’re hopeful that by starting fresh, they’ll have a chance to stay balanced for a long time. For players looking for a chance to level up in dungeons, we hope the presence of other leveling players makes that more likely.”
Wrath of the Lich King will certainly pique lots of curiosity: our personal Fraser reckons that it marked the tip of WoW’s best period, and the game was by no means higher than through the return of Arthas. Blizzard hasn’t but dated the growth however count on it someday later this yr. Meanwhile, this is the whole lot we learn about how the studio is bringing again one among WoW’s best eras.
