Eurogamer interviewed Jeff Kaplan and Chris Robinson to discuss details of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. They talk about voice chat, Siege Weapon PvP, the length of gameplay between level 70-80, the Death Knight Hero class and the lessons Blizzard has learned from the mistakes of Burning Crusade.
Eurogamer: Don’t you worry everyone will want to give up their former characters to become a Death Knight?
Chris Robinson: : Not really. Firstly, the Death Knight will be a totally different character from the former one and I’m not sure most players are likely to give up an avatar they’ve patiently shaped up for three years. Though a majority of players will probably try this new class, I don’t think a lot of them will end up making it their main character.
Furthermore, the Death Knight is subject to some restrictions. As I said before, the progression will probably be slower. The range of available weapons will be restricted to swords, possibly axes and may be some others. Nothing’s certain for the moment.
