Flying mount, new quests, new monsters, new spells, jewelcrafting – these are just a few of the new features that The Burning Crusade has brought to the already popular game, World of Warcraft. The end game at level 60 was all that people had to look forward to when the original game came out.
For years, a collection of people would unite to destroy large dragons and other such monsters that just a single group could not accomplish. With the release of The Burning Crusade, the swarms of level sixty players find new challenges that await them in the Outlands. Outlands is the new continent where only seasoned players may put their skills to the test versus a new range of ravenous monsters. Along with new monsters comes the city of Shattrath, where the bulk of business is taken care of.
Within the city you are able to port to any other of the original cities at your whim, cutting down travel time. Another city available is The Exodar, which is home to the new Dranei race that appears to be blue fauns. Don’t let the cute animal look deceive you, these creatures can take a beating and recover with their innate ability Gift of the Naaru, a heal over time spell with a three minute cool down. While the Dranei chose the side of the ally to aid in the epic battle, a new threat has arisen with their assistance going to the horde.
The Blood Elf, a cruel yet attractive race, has the power to cause destruction in its wake. The release of the Blood Elf Paladin has become a popular choice with the horde now having the ability to become a class that was never before allowed. Meanwhile the Dranei bring the shaman class to the ally to balance the scale of power.
Within the Outlands characters now have the ability to control their own flying mounts! Soaring the skies has become a reality in the land of Azeroth, along with being able to group with horde or alliance due to the new system of Scryer and Aldor. If you can believe it, a human and orc can work as a team!
In addition to the teamwork, players find that level seventy is a difficult goal to reach but in the end it has delicious rewards. Along with character levels, crafting skill levels have had the bar raised and even incorporated a new skill called jewelcrafting. Jewelcrafting is a skill that allows for earrings, rings, and necklaces to be crafted. At higher levels, gems can be cut to fit socketed armor allowing players to customized gear for maximum performance. With all these addition and so much more The Burning Crusade is a must have for all hardcore MMORPG lovers everywhere.
