Details on World of Warcraft PvP, Mail Systems
8:38 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Late last week, Blizzard posted some tidbits regarding upcoming features being added to the current beta test for World of Warcraft. Chief among these are a new mail system and a variety of realm types, which will basically control the flow of player vs. player (PvP) play.
The mail system itself includes several types, including Normal, Packaged, and C.O.D. Normal consists of text only, while Packages can include both items and text. C.O.D., as the name suggests, requires the recipient to pay for the item before they can acquire it.
The new realm types will include a standard Player vs. Environment server as well as a Horde vs. Alliance server. The PvE server has a few interesting traits listed, including the ability to attack NPC vendors from opposing races:
Players have the ability to attack almost all opposing faction NPCs, including vendors and quest givers. If a player attacks an opposing faction NPC, players of the opposite faction are then able to target and attack that player. Whenever an NPC is attacked, players who share the same faction as that NPC will receive a system message indicating that a specific town is under attack.More information on the specifics of each addition can be found at the WoW Community site.
