Blizzard has announced that the new expansion pack, Wrath of the Lich King, will be released on November 13th, 2008.
The new expansion allows players to increase their level to level 80, including new abilities, talents and skills. Players can also create a new class of character, the “Death Knight”, which starts at level 55 and is a tanking class with magical abilities. The expansion also includes new PvP options including siege engines. It also introduces a new “achievements” system, where you get points for achieving certain milestones, like exploring areas or being the first to reach a level on your server.
There are two versions of the new expansion. The normal version is just that. The “collector’s edition” includes a 208 page book, a key to unlock a special baby frost wyrm pet, a DVD with developer interviews, the official soundtrack CD, a mousepad and two starter decks of cards including two cards only available in the collector’s edition. Both versions work on Windows and Macintosh.
You can order the "World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack" for $3 under the normal price, or "World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Collector’s Edition" for full price, with a limit of one per household. Both have free shipping and a price guarantee – you’ll get the best price that Amazon offers the product at between the time you place the order and the time it ships.
Wrath of the Lich King requires that you already have a copy of the original "World of Warcraft" and the first expansion, "World Of Warcraft Expansion: Burning Crusade". If you need both, you can save $10 by getting the "World of Warcraft Battlechest" which has both.
I know where my productivity is going on November 13th.
