Burning Crusade Preview
8:26 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment is offering a new preview for The Burning Crusade, the first expansion pack for the globe conquering World of Warcraft. The preview focuses on the Tower of Karazhan, once home to the powerful sorcerer Medivh. In addition to a variety of screenshots the preview offers a bit of background on the tower's history. Those seeking to enter the tower will need nine companions of 70th level and be prepared to face challenging new monsters and boss encounters in a quest for the dozens of new powerful items Karazhan has to offer.

Medivh, the Last Guardian, made his home in Deadwind, in the bright tower of Karazhan. Though he was the greatest wizard of his day (and humanity's intended custodian) Medivh was secretly possessed by the dark spirit of Sargeras, the Destroyer of Worlds. Through Medivh, Sargeras opened the Dark Portal and allowed the orcs to wage war upon the mortal kingdoms of Azeroth.

As the war progressed, Medivh fought against Sargeras' control. The raging conflict within him finally drove the wizard irrevocably insane. His childhood friend and the king's lieutenant-at-arms, Anduin Lothar, suspected the mage of treachery. With the aid of Medivh's young apprentice, Khadgar, Lothar stormed Karazhan and killed his one-time comrade. Since that day, a terrible curse has pervaded both the tower and the lands around it - casting a dark pall over Deadwind Pass and the region that is now known as Duskwood
