Blizzard on Raiding in World of Warcraft
2:43 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Blizzard today posted an "insider" interview on their web site that talks about how raiding works in the upcoming World of Warcraft. Raid' are assaults by larger groups of players on powerful monsters or dungeons and in World of Warcraft can include everything from a group of lower level characters tackling a quest well above their level to the epic end-game, high-level attacks against god-like foes.

Here's a clip from the interview with designer Jeffrey Kaplan:

A raid, as I would define it, is when it takes more than a standard group to kill a creature. Technically, people could be raiding the Deadmines for Van Cleef if they tried it with several players who were below the recommended level. So if some characters are level 15 and they want to kill Van Cleef, and they take two groups into the Deadmines, I would actually consider that a raid. Now the raiding that we are talking about today is end-game raiding, and that is designed for players that hit max level - level 60 - and who want to get together and kill dragons, or demons, or other high-end monsters.
To check out the entire interview, please follow the link below.

The IMG Store is currently taking pre-orders for the game, which is scheduled to ship on November 23rd.
