World Of Warcraft Call Of The Crusade Reviewed

IGN has posted a new review of World of Warcraft's latest update, Version 3.2: Call of the Crusade. In addition to the usual bug fixes, balance changes, and content additions version 3.2 introduces the Isle of Conquest battleground and Crusaders' Coliseum dungeon.

The more hardcore raiders need not worry though. There's an entire hard-mode instance dedicated to their voracious appetite for challenging content! After completing the normal mode instance, players will unlock the hard-mode instance. This instance will limit the number of wipes your raid can have during a raid lockout period, making it much harder and requiring people to think on their feet.

With the release of the new dungeon, Blizzard has also introduced the next tier of gear as well. For the first time, players will be able to purchase their entire tier set using emblems and trophies gained from the Coliseum raid. As we're getting closer and closer to the final encounter with the Lich King; Blizzard seems to be taking the same path it did with Sunwell. The company is throwing epics at players! All heroic and raid instances with the exception of the Coliseum raid will drop Emblems of Triumph. This will allow players to get Ulduar level gear with half the effort in half the time. It's likely this change was made to help more people get ready to see Icecrown Citadel before the next expansion.

While this new instance is being eaten up by the raiding community, it's not the only new thing in this patch. PvPers have several additions and changes they can look forward to as well. Patch 3.2 means that Season 7 is just around the corner! In the meantime, the Isle of Conquest awaits! This island in the Frozen Sea north of Icecrown is a new battleground. This is sure to bring more strategy back to the battlegrounds front as there are several different ways you can win or lose.

As if that wasn't enough PvP goodness for you, battlegrounds will now grant experience! Twinks have the option of turning off their experience gains from battlegrounds but doing so will ensure that you will only be placed in a battleground versus others who have their experience turned off too. In a mood rarely seen in World of Warcraft, it seems that both twinks and non-twinks are happy about this change.
