WoW: Wrath of the Lich King - Hands-On @ Eurogamer

by Woges, 2008-10-29 16:31:13

Third hands-on preview by Oli Welsh mostly giving overviews of each area of Northrend.

Dalaran is a very charismatic and charming city, much more so than The Burning Crusade's Shattrath. It's quite compact; the main influences are Silvermoon's beauty, Stormwind's homely alleyways and Undercity's efficient radial design. Instead of the baffling division between the Aldor and Scryer factions in The Burning Crusade, we simply get Horde and Alliance districts, each furnished with a huge inn and a full suite of battlemasters and portals to battlegrounds and capital cities. There's also the Underbelly, a shadier underground town located in the sewers, where you'll find another bank and inn as well as the city's new Arena; and The Violet Hold, a high-end prison dungeon, hopefully more interesting than Stormwind's Stockade.
