Uncovering The Secrets Of The Lich King
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

CVG has posted a new interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Sam Didier and Jeffrey Kaplan about the upcoming second expansion for World of Warcraft, The Wrath of the Lich King. The interview offers discussion about the new Death Knight hero class, the look of Northrend, and the kind of content players will see once they reach the new level 80 cap.

What major level 80 end-game content are you including?
Kaplan: There's a few things. We've a number of instances. We're doing instances to cover all the levelling up experience as well, not just end-game instances. We'll have five-person instances at the end-game and for the levelling up experience...
The big lesson we learned from The Burning Crusade was that our ten-person instances are extremely popular. So for Wrath of the Lich King we wanted progression in the ten-person raid game for the players... who want to stick to that ten-person cap.
Something we introduced in patch 2.1 - that we're going to be [building on] in upcoming content patches as well as Wrath of the Lich King - is our system of daily quests.
Daily quests make for good end-game content for players who don't want to PvP, who don't want to do instances, who don't want to raid and don't want to group - they just like doing quests by themselves.
Daily quests are quests you can do once per day and then it resets the next day. And to alleviate the feeling that those create grinding or repetitive content, we're coming up with daily quests with randomisation.
Head over to the site below to read the rest of the Q&A.
