    Wow. Now it sounds even more thoroughly mind-numbing.

    I wonder how many people will go through another expansion, where you level 10 times and then raid for a few months/years.

    Hero class? My soul is crushed. The sad thing is, I'll buy and play it anyways.

    Thank god my brother and I got over WoW earlier in the year. This doesn't bring even a twitch of want to play it again, which surprises me. CoD2 ftw.

    New hairstyles and dances are supposed to be a selling point LOL.

    I'm still disappointed on how Paladins turned out at in TBC. Healbot I choose you! Bah. Why the fuck should the Paladin outheal the damn holy priest is beyond me.

    http://arenacombat.ytmnd.com/ They really need to fix the afk Alterac Valley Horde problem at 70. That used to be my favourite battleground at 60 :(

    The death knight does sound cool enough however. Probably the most useful undead hero in Wc3 with the deathcoil and the speed aura.

    Yet another $50 down the drain for all the WoW addicts. Doesnt seem like they are actually adding anything that you cant get in WC3 tft, and thats free.

    Yeah, saw this. I thought there would have been more additional levels. Perhaps up to 90, at least. But yeah. I'm guessing after the Lich King, all there is left are the Titans and Old Gods, unless they create something new.

    Death Knight sounds alright. Was my favorite hero in WC3.

    Hell if you fight Arthras it won't really be for real I bet. At 70 Blizzard has said Illidan was just playing with you, and Arthras kicked his ass before the fuse. Innless Arthas is like a 80 man raid I can not see it being a "real fight"

    I remember hearing somewhere that Blizzard decided Arthas was gonna be around lvl 90 to challenge him with a full 40 man raid.

    There are no more 40 man raids. Blizzard fucked that one up good.

    As the Arthas they really haven't said anything other than he'll be one of the Raid encounters.

    Eh, you can 40 man Doomwalker and Kazzak and still fail. I've seen it happen. It makes me smile inside to run in and fear the healers on both fights.

    Eh. It's lost its magic for me, but I'll likely come across another game card (my last six months have all been gotten by chance) and buy the expansion later on. This is a huge opportunity for Blizzard to put in some interesting stuff (Undead ----> Shadow Ascendant hero class, for one). So... of course, they won't.

    Your closet. Please clean it, I can't move.
    What is odd is that I really tried to get into this game. But I never really did, the monotony was too much for me. I never leveled past 36. So the only reason I have any interest in this is because Arthas is going to be kicking ass and taking names of 20-40 people at once.

    I had a level 40 Priest once... but then I remembered how nice it was to have a life.

    Hah. Having a life is overrated. I'd rather have shiny 1s and 0s.
