Blizzard Entertainment is taking players back to the cold lands of Northrend with today’s announcement of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
This finely tuned rerelease of the 2008 hit expansion to the World of Warcraft (WoW) MMORPG franchise brings back the Lich King Arthas Menethil. Both veterans and newcomers can enjoy the iconic raids from the original expansion including Naxxramas, Ulduar, and Icecrown Citadel. The five player dungeons such as Violet Hold, Culling of Stratholme, Utgarde Keep, and Azjol-Nerub will be available to relive.
Death Knight’s for the first time in classic can be created. As WoW’s first hero class, players harnessed the power of darkness to fight back the evils threatening Azeroth. This time around there will be no prerequisites for those looking to create a Death Knight.
Would be scribes can rejoice as the Inscription profession is arriving in the expansion. With this profession players can alter the appearance and properties of spells and abilities through the use of mystical glyphs. In addition this profession can create powerful trinkets and off-hand items.
Players who wish to show off their feats will enjoy the addition of Achievements in WoW Classic. A whole new set of rewards for one’s accomplishments in game.
All of the lands of Northrend from the Borean Tundra to the Howling Fjord await when players return later in 2022 to World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
