Major PvP and Raid Changes for WoW
8:22 AM | Evan Holt | Comment on this story
With Blizzard's upcoming expansion World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, there are going to be some significant changes to gameplay. Blizzard stopped by IGN and outlined some of the large modifications that they are making to the existing game.
Currently World of Warcraft players have to join large 40-player groups to tackle the evil foes. In an effort to allow smaller groups to experience the new content the raid group size is being changed to 25 players.
The move is undoubtedly going to be a controversial one with many of the hardcore raiding guilds but Blizzard is quick to point out the positives as they see them. Smaller raiding parties will mean that guilds struggling to find enough people to send into the high end raids should be a bit easierAnother large change we will see in the expansion pack is to Player vs. Player and reputation.
The honor system is being changed around so that honor gained is used like a currency to purchase goods. There will be no more ranks in the honor system but those that have been participating will be able to keep anything they've earned to date including titles and equipment. Otherwise it's effectively being reset. The hope is also to encourage players to move between battlegrounds by having some equipment cost basic honor along with specific honor won in different locations.To read the full article and find our more about the changes such as objective PvP areas and arenas, head over to IGN following the link below.
