World of Warcraft First Impressions
6:00 AM | Johan Hansén | Comment on this story

PlanetWarcraft has had the ability to experience some actual playtime with Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming MMORPG World of Warcraft and has posted their impressions for everybody to read. The eagerly awaited title is based on the Warcraft universe, after the events that takes place in Blizzard's top seller Strategy game WarCraft III - Reign of Chaos and its expansion The Frozen Throne. In World of Warcraft you will be able to play as one of the many races in the Warcraft universe and this will greatly affect the gameplay.

From the article:

...each race begins the game with a different racial advantage over the other races. Tauren can perform a “bull rush” attack, Gnomes come with natural frost resistance, Forsaken can breathe water naturally, and Dwarves can use a natural ability to find wild booty called, “find treasure.” The final thing that set the races apart in my mind is the different mounts that the races use. The Humans love their horses while Forsaken ride Nightmare, Dwarves ride rams and Orcs ride wolves. When asked what mounts the Gnomes will ride, the answer given to me was a, “We don't know yet, but I am hoping its bunnies!”
