Burning Crusade Previewed
9:23 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer is the one of the latest sites to offer a new preview of Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming The Burning Crusade. The first expansion for World of Warcraft, Crusade is set to offer a treasure horde of new content for eager gamers. In addition to an increased level cap and an entirely new continent to explore, players will also benefit from the controllable flying mounts and expanded PvP options.

Level 70 players will be able to acquire flying mounts. While players are limited to the Outlands as far as actual flight, these mounts can touch down and walk along the ground too - a nice touch that will allow you to show off your lettness in the old world cities. Kaplan stated that flying mounts serve three design purposes: 1) fast travel, 2) prestige, and 3) progression. As the first is fairly self-explanatory (griffon speed!), let's go to prestige. All level 70 players will likely upgrade to the purchased level 70 flying mount just like you did at level 40, but the hardcore can also attain legendary flying mounts (Damron was sporting his "Nether Drake"). As far as the third purpose - progression - you'll need your flying mount to access certain lofty dungeons in Outlands.
