On Jan 16, 2007 World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade was released and across the world players have been waiting for the game to finally hit store shelves. The game was a hit and users who have previously left World of Warcraft for being to boring or ****s being "broken" returned and were reaquanted with an old friend. When The Burnning Crusade was released the features were: Outlands, increased level cap (70), new dude (Illidan), lots of new areas to discover, flying mounts, Jewelcrafting, new pvp battlegrounds, and Arena. Today on August 3rd, 2007 i just heard everything again.
So the Wrath of the Lych King was finally revealed recently and boy, i don't care! It's the same exact concept; level 80, Inscription, Death Knight (??), new land, new dude (Artthas). For crying out loud i don't think many people reached Illidan yet and they're already releasing another 25 man epic raid?
Personally if you ask me Blizzard is moving way to fast for their users. The amount of time since the first World of Warcraft came out till Burnning Crusade was enough time for everybody to get the epic gear, mount, and of course, suspense. Their are a lot of people on my realm that havn't even got a chance to do Karazhan yet. Again if you ask me, now, it is so pointless to get tier 4, 5, 6, 7... because their just going to keep bringing more updated versions out and more time for you to waste getting nowhere. Sounds extreme but, thats why i dropped as well. They started to release more and more armor that really it just seemed pointless to even try (and for some other reasons).
For people that really put in a lot of time into World of Warcraft, enjoy it, and are the one's getting far in the game then yeah the expansion is worth it. For a user like me and all of the other people who couldn't keep up; this game is not worth a dime.
