One of the most awaited MMORPGs of the year is definitely the second expansion of the World of Warcraft. Titled “Wrath of the Lich King, " the expansion promises innovative gameplays, powerful new characters, and a tantalizing new world setting. Gamers all over the world are in fits of excitement as the day of the release comes nearer. They know that the setting of the new game is as important as all the other elements of it, such as the visuals, gameplays, and characters and like true explorers, everyone is ready to set foot and explore the new environment. Needless to say, the Wrath of the Lich King Northrend setting will not disappoint. Players will be introduced to a harsh, desolate, and cold continent where much of the battles will be concentrated. Below is a general description of the new continent and what you can expect from it.
Northrend is a continent shaped like a crescent. Its size and width is rumored to loom over that of the Outlands. Although known as a land of ice and snow, there are some regions in Northrend that are unaffected by the cold such as Sholazar Basin and Howling Fjord. In the Wrath of the Lich King Northrend setting players will be allowed to use flying mounts. According to Blizzard Entertainment, this will become available to players with the level 77. Why the long wait? Blizzard wants you to work for it.
How To Get There:
It seems that Blizzard Entertainment has learned from their mistakes. In the previous expansion, The Burning Crusade, a lot of players were frazzled at not getting into the game. This time around, Blizzard has set multiple entry points to the Northrend setting. For example, players with Level 68 to 72 can opt to enter either from the Howling Fjord in the continent's east side, or from the Borean Tundra in the west side. Depending on whether you are of the Alliance or the Horde, there are two ways to get to Northrend itself.
To get to Howling Fjord:
Travel by boat to get to Valgarde.
To get to Borean Tundra:
Travel by boat to get to Valliance Keep
To get to Howling Fjord:
Travel by zeppelin from Undercity to Vengeance Landing
To get to Borean Tundra: Again, travel by zeppelin to Warsong Hold
The Wrath of the Lich King Northrend setting is carefully designed by the creators to allow players to enter from the Level 68 and level up until they reach the cap of 80. Zones are level dependent, meaning unless you are of a certain level, you cannot go to some zones.
Some of the zones in Northrend are the following:
Howling Fjord for levels 68-72
The Dragonblight for levels 71-75
Zul'Dak for level 73-76
Learn as much as you can about Wrath of the Lich King Northrend setting. There are a lot of Internet sites who contain a lot of information about the continent. Every true gamer knows that in war, the battleground can spell the difference between victory and defeat.
Do you want to always be one step ahead of everyone else in Wrath of the Lich King, and not be left behind?
