The End of the World (of Warcraft) is Nigh

The Cataclysm is here tomorrow, and Blizzard's Cory Stockton gives us the inside scoop on what's what.

Read Full Article

I'll probably restart my subscription for cata

Hehe, I can't wait to see how this effects Shamus's Lets Play of WoW.

As for the game itself, well I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that essentially every quest has been changed in some way. Sounds silly, but holy crap thats insane.

I'm not sure what to make of it yet. Looks like it's going to be good though.

YUS!! I can get my Tauren Paladin sooner than expected

Favourite class + favourite race coming together ftw.

I nearly creamed my pants when I saw Tauren Pallys in the Cata trailer :D

Well Blizz sadly I am too poor right now to get back on the Crackaclysm train but have fun to all that can afford it.

until i saw this video i wasn't aware of how much memories i have of those places. and as long as the barrens chat stays alive i am OK with change.

btw why do we horde players get stuck with a racist murderous prick as faction leader?

So Outland and Northrend are still the same? Might feel odd to do 60 levels of "OH MY GOD THE WORLD IS DYING" followed by 20 levels of NPCs who act like nothing's changed. Or did they do something about that too? That's not a new problem when it comes to WoW expansions, but it'd be nice if they figured out a solution.

So we finally got a reason to be evil! :P
no i dont think i am going back, i had my fun with the beta, thats enough for this year.

I don't like WoW, but I'm really impressed with the way they are totally reworking the world. They could have just let it sit there for another 10 years and I'm sure they'd still be making money.

Blizzard is going to release a free comic online saying why Thrall picked Garrosh. But I agree, it should have been Cairne. Infact, it nearly was, you know, until

It makes me think of actually playing the game, since everything will be new (more or less) to everyone and I wouldn't feel any more lost than anyone else.
On the other hand, I will have missed 6 years of the game as it used to be and I'd get the feeling of someone standing there constantly repeating an inside joke I'll never understand.

Actually, The Grimtotem Taurens had been poisoning him for some time, so you could blame everything on them. In fact, Garrosh does, and then proceeds to invade Thunderbluff and kill off/push off the Grimtotems. Now, they are kind of on the Alliance side.

OT: Can't wait to play this Christmas Morning!! It looks so awesome! It just sucks that now I'll have to level up a Worgen Character (It was a pain to get my Draenai to level 50, and I am still trying to level him up to 80!)

"This Kingdom shall fall. And from the ashes, shall arise a new order that will shake the very foundations...of the World."

sigh* I'm gonna miss old Azshara that place was so pretty, no one ever really went there. It was unfinished, barely any quests.

It's was an special place in WoW, so quiet. You could run through it and be luck to see one or two people, there in such large game with severs thousands but still find one empty land a dead spot in WoW. There was something haunting about it.

It made me wonder if the rest of the world will be like that one day.

Because of incredibly intermittent play, I never even made it to 60 over the year and a half I've been playing. I'm sitting outside Stormwind at level 50 now. I'm a bit sad I never got to experience the entire original leveling experience, but I'm still glad of the memories I've had with it.

I'm pretty excited for Cataclysm. I've been racing to get my Troll Shaman up to 80 before the expansion proper hits. I've only been playing for a few months, so hopefully I won't be missing out on anything cool after the big change, but that's a minor issue. Cata's gonna be awesome (flying mounts everywhere for the win!)

Well, us Alliance have been with one since WotLK. Wrynn is such a douche.

So that's it, then.

Come then, Deathwing, with all your fury. If you want to break my world, I will break you.

See, Arthas was a pussy, Deathwing gets shit done, model employee!

true that, I hate the alliance purely for lore reasons especially Wrynn. Thrall has got to be one of the most reasonable leaders in the story, he's worked so hard to get both factions work together for the common good. When the betrayal of Varimathras and the Forsaken occured at the wrath gate, rather than act rationally, Wrynn declared war on the horde because his friend Fordragon died. He was willing to risk total annihilation at the hands of Arthas just for his own petty revenge.

/sigh.

I'm getting all nostalgic over WoW lately. So many memories in so many zones...

Farewell, Barrens!
Farewell, Orgrimmar!
Farewell, Thousand Needles!
You deserved it, Stormwind!

The list goes on...

Too bad Grom isn't still around to set his son straight, or take the position himself. he may have been a bit of a hot head but he knew to do the right thing.

I find it kind of funny that there is a ad for WOW:Cataclysm on a video about WOW:Cataclysm.

Even though I've only been playing for about 6 months I'm gonna miss these places. I got to 80 just in time it seems! Just logged on to find Thunder Bluff under attack by an Elemental army! Damn I love the way they are implementing the changes!

Blizz is constantly working on content for WoW, it helps make your 15 dollars a month feel worth it.

Deathwing should say that.

I dunno, but I blame Wrynn for Garrosh's rise to Warchief. First, you had Wrynn declare war on the Horde in Wrath. Then you have Thrall leaving the throne to help heal the sundered Azeroth. Who does he find himself as a replacement: a war hero, one the orcs love and will follow into battle. Under the circumstances, I understand Thrall's choice. Garrosh is mean, ruthless and a fearsome enemy the Alliance will think twice about crossing.m As cool as Bloodhoof and Voljin are they are not best leaders in times of war.

You see, this is a real example of shit hitting the fan. When Deathwing wants everything destroyed, he destroys everything with his own two hands (or claws... or legs... whatever) Unlike Arthas who just sends out a bunch of minions to do his work and fail at it. Anywho, I'll be picking this back up during Christmas time. Rolling me a Worgen druid =D

So I wasn't the only one that felt that way about Ashzara. I remember going there questing and just getting caught up in mournful fall and all the ruins. It felt like a place of immense history. I also going to miss Hilsbard Foothills. I liked questing there because of its remoteness. Southshore seemed like a quaint little town. Quiet, small, and tight nit, like some little town you pass by on the road to somewhere else. I liked those towns as I grew up in one. Now its going to be destroyed, touched by the new plague. I've got a lot respect and love for the Orcs, Trolls, and Tauren, but I hate Forsaken.

Did Wyrnn come to his senses after the Battle of Undercity? Or are they still 'at war'?

I'm pretty sure he mentioned in the LoTR Let's Play that he's got a few months lead time on these articles.

In other words, he's probably already done whatever he's going to write about.

The Forsaken are badass, but lore-wise yeah, they're all a bunch of evil dicks,
Somewhat understandably, after all they were murdered, then resurrected without their will and forced to murder their own people, sometimes their own families and friends, then released from that power, and still dead,
Oh, also their former race now hates and hunts them as monsters,
I'd be a bit cranky and malicious too =P
But as a long-time Horde player i've never been to Southshore unless I was killing people,
By your Southshore description you clearly have not been playing for too long, as there used to be giant pvp wars in Hilsbrad in WoW's earlier days,
I'll personally be glad to be chucking bombs or whatever at it and cackling maniacly

Garrosh is the original Emo kid of WoW,
I swear to God I hate that douchebag with a passion
