World of WarCraft: Shadowlands is currently the seventh expansion pack for the hugely popular massively multi-player online role-playing video game World of Warcraft. It was revealed and released for purchase at BlizzCon 2007, ahead of its official release date. It included new content including the quest content introduced with the Wrath of the Lich King, the first major expansion pack of the game. Some of the new additions included in the expansion include:
New Features: A brand new class, the Demon Hunter, has been added to the game. They are highly aggressive, magical, and melee attackers. They have several different play styles including tanking, flanking, or even support depending on the player. The Demon Hunters is the most effective when they are not in a party.
New races include the Blood Elf on the Eastern Horde side, the Draenei on the Western Horde side, and the Undead on the Northern Alliance side. There are new dungeons and raids as well. There is also a brand new zone, the Ruins of Gilneas. This is the original Gilneas area that has been redone with new quests, characters, and locations. In this zone you will find several items that drop just about anything, including the new epic mount – the Bat Gift.
Leveling up: As is the case with all World of Warcraft games, the leveling in World of Warcraft Shadowlands is done at the same pace as that of the other levels. For those that choose to do so, they will find that it’s a bit more difficult as opposed to other expansions. This is because the content is still new and there are still many areas that need to be perfected before the player can tackle them. Fortunately, the effort is well worth it. Once the player gets a few levels up, he or she will find that the challenges are quite exciting!
World of Warcraft Shadowlands was not designed to be a fully blown expansion. The designers knew that they needed to build upon what was already in place in the game. That being said, the developers did an excellent job creating a number of new areas, quests, creatures, and items for players to explore. Some of the most popular and fun new additions include:
World of Warcraft Shadowlands provides the same fantastic entertainment that any WoW player would expect. In addition, it provides an entirely new environment to experience and enjoy. What really makes it shine though, is that the new areas, quests, and creatures really make playing the game more enjoyable. I would recommend this to any WoW player looking to add a few new aspects to their gaming experience. It is a great add-on that has plenty of worthwhile content for players to dive into.
