WoW Expansion Preview
7:51 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Right on the heels of the announcment, IGN has a preview of Blizzard's recently unveiled World of WarCraft: The Burning Crusade expansion pack. The preview highlights include aspects of the Blood Elf race, new raid zones, and level cap increase. In addition, there is more information about the upcoming 1.9 patch for World of WarCraft.

The Blood Elves also get a pair of active racial traits, consisting of two spells. One is Mana Tap, an instant cast which pulls 50 mana from an enemy, if they have a mana pool, with a ten second cooldown. (Keep in mind that the stats might change -- this is just what I observed from this build). This can be stacked up to three times. The other is Arcane Torrent, which silences spellcasters within 8 yards for 2 seconds, and will convert 12-140 mana per stacked Mana Tap. Arcane Torrent is also instant cast but has a two minute cooldown. Like I said, these guys like their magic. All that lore isn't just there for show.
Please follow the links below to read the entire preview.
