One of the most widely played MMORPG games, stemming from one of the longest standing series is, of course, World of Warcraft. Unfortunately, this great series has fallen on hard times of late, and Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor weren’t all that great story-wise. It seemed that Blizzard doesn’t know where to move on with their heroes and with the story, but in Legion, this is set to change. For seven years, the WoW players haven’t witnessed anything spectacular happening, but they’re about to see it now.
The Legion Is Coming
As we said, it’s been seven years since anything really exciting happened in the World of Warcraft. Since Cataclysm and the rise of Dreathwing, Azeroth has had no major threats. However, this is all about to change, for Gul’Dan has risen to power once again, unleashing that which all peoples of Azeroth fear, that which has been once defeated, but came back again – the Legion.This is the first time sit a common enemy. However, their attempt to stop the demon invasion was utterly and brutally crushed. Now demons roam the lands, and heroes are needed to obtain the Pillars of Creation to stop this new threat.
When it comes to gameplay WoW will be WoW. It’s the same old WoW that we know and love, but now with a few new things. Firstly new areas are added and the level cap was set to 100. Not only that, but players buying the game can have their characters automatically set to level 100. In addition, a new class, Demon Hunter, was added. This is an interesting new class, but it doesn’t upset the balance of the game. You will still end up with the same three roles of tank, DPS and healer. However, the Demon Hunter class is much more mobile on food than any other class. Demon Hunters can double jump and glide thanks to their Illidan-ish wings. In addition, another hero slot was added, so you can have one hero of each class in your roster.
The only bad thing about the game is that it draws heavily upon the game’s lore, and newcomers will feel very alienated and detached. For those now familiar with two decades of game’ lore, they will find all of the story confusing and redundant. However, this is also partially all true with other games of this series as well, so take that last one with a grain of salt.
In conclusion, WoW is back on track with Legion. The story was stuck for so long that the fans almost lost hope in the series. Warlords of Draenor was a bust, almost, but, with the coming of the Burning Legion, things can finally start moving forward.
