Release by Xmas for Wrath?

Postby Vanifae » Thu Jul 24, 2008 4:28 pm

I was poking around the database and saw this, they have the new Hallowed Eve achievements but then I saw this and although not news I am pretty sure this prefaces a possible before Xmas launch of the expansion.

Nice catch. Vivendi did have a financial press release indicating that blizzard would be releasing a new expansion in the 2 half of 08, so I think that has been the intention for some time. Based in the beta cycle for TBC, it's probably a mid November release.

How about this one?

I'd say probably summer. Or wait:

Probably Valentine's Day. Or:

http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?achievement=250

Easter. Aren't there achievements for all holidays?

Only that one specifically mentions Dalaran a place not currently available to earn that Achievement.

Not saying it is written in stone just curious that they would make that wording.

I mean why say specifically Dalaran, why not just turn your flying mount into reindeer? I mean we already know that you can do already.

Ahhh. I see. Good catch, then. I remember seeing that achievement, but not putting it together with Dalaran.

I think that achievement pretty clearly indicates Blizzard intends to release WotLK by Christmas 2009.

I totally agree on that one. I have a theory though.

2.4.2 was to be the last major patch before the expansion. In said patch they tested both the Brewfest and Hallows End events with level 70 bosses. To me this implies that both these events will occur when players are level 70. However, they did not test the Winter Veil event. If they aren't going to patch anything new into our clients until the expansion, and they haven't patched in new stuff for Winter Veil this year, then my expectation is that we will see 3.0 before Winter Veil starts.

Note that that's just the 3.0 patch, not necessarily the actual expansion, though I think they said they didn't want to have a disparity like they did for TBC.

Bahahahahaha I don't think it will be that bad...

Although in my original StarCraft CD it does say "Coming in 1997: World of Warcraft"

Not Kidding.












Spoiler Alert:













(I know all about the version they were developing that they scrapped at the time, it was originally going to be a single-player RPG that made you Thrall)
