World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King was released on November 13, 2008. For this expansion, Blizzard put in a lot of new content, which attracted the new players, and even increased the replayability value for the existing players. The undead slaves, home of the eponymous Lich, and Northend continent were added into the game.
To play through this expansion, the player has to be at least level 68 while the level cap is 80. Many players have stated that the Wrath of the Lich King was the last time when Blizzard was any good. However, in the current world, it doesn’t seem much possible to return back to Northend.
Why do we say so? Simply because of the fact that Wrath of the Lich King has got old, just like the Burning Crusade!
If you have been playing World of Warcraft for a long time, then you can easily point out what made Classic Wrath of the Lich King so popular back in those days! Let’s take a detailed look at what all the expansion has to offer to the table:
Wow Classic Wrath of the Lich King: Gameplay & Features:
When this expansion was released in public, one of the first few changes that people noticed was the level cap increase, which basically allowed individuals to multiply their abilities and power through training.
The first hero class of the franchise, death knights, was also introduced in this expansion. For those who don’t know, a hero class basically enables a player to begin at a level above 1, and this feature wasn’t seen until Wrath of the Lich King was introduced. The special thing about the death knight was that they were considered heroes of both the Horde and the Alliance.
