From the throne of Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King Arthas Menethil, a fierce misguided paladin now corrupted by his own will to save his people at all costs, sends his undead army to confront the inhabitants and the inhabitants of Azeroth.
Blizzard Entertainment today announced that Horde and Alliance forces will have another chance to finally put an end to the sinister plans of one of World of Warcraft’s most iconic villains starting September 27th. , when Wrath of the Lich King Classic will be released, the recreation of WoW’s famous second expansion, accessible at no additional cost for people with an active subscription. This expansion will be available at midnight (Paris time) worldwide, as well as in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classi™ and all its realms.
To face the Lich King, you will have to embark on a perilous adventure, and cross the winter forests and the snowy peaks of the continent of Northrend, the vastest zone ever included in the game by Blizzard via an expansion (until the upcoming release of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight). Admire its breathtaking views and enjoy one of the most beloved storylines in the Warcraft universe as you journey forward in your quest to reach Icecrown and defeat one of the greatest threats Azeroth has ever known. .
Through this expansion, you will also be able to benefit from the fearsome Death Knight class, available to all, which starts at level 55. Death Knights are the former champions of the Lich King. They decimate their foes with dark magic and runic power. Also enjoy the original version of the World of Warcraft achievement system and celebrate your in-game achievements. Also discover Inscription, which will allow you to create glyphs to improve your combat techniques, or even modify your appearance, and the properties of your spells and techniques.
Put your newfound fighting skills to the test by completing Wrath of the Lich King’s 13 signature dungeons, such as Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom, where you face the servants of the Old God Yogg-Saron, or the terrible Purge of Stratholme, which recreates the tragic event that led to the downfall of Prince Arthas. And if you want the ultimate challenge, complete all 7 raids in the expansion, such as the new versions of Naxxramas and Onyxia’s Lair from the World of Warcraft pre-expansion, not to mention Icecrown Citadel , where the story of the Lich King will come to an epic end.
Before launch, take advantage of the Joyous Journeys, an event where you’ll get 50% bonus XP until the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. World of Warcraft subscribers will have the ability to create one Death Knight per realm Classic, and upgrade it to level 70 in Burning Crusade Classic until September 27. In addition, you can also buy optional upgrades, such as new ornaments, or an optional sesame for level 70 if your character has not yet reached its full potential.
