Quote of the Day

“Can you honestly believe that in order to start a new toon, and reach the endgame, you need to buy 4 boxes off the shelf, and the fourth box completely replaces the first box? Doesn’t that seem a little silly?”

    That is an interesting observation.

    Technically, to start a new toon, you still just need the first box. “Vanilla” WoW is changing to the new form whether you’ve bought the Cataclysm expansion or not. You won’t however have access to the new races nor the lvl 80+ zones. They’ve made this very clear in their communications. You will still need the requisite expansions to play any new races/classes, or to level past 60.

    What MMO/Game are we comparing this to that this model is so unexpected?

    In just about every game expansions include higher levels, more zones, more races.

    In any case I highly doubt “vanilla” will still be around since that content in getting replaced. So might still be three.

    All the “vanilla” zones are getting replaced with the updated Cataclysm versions, yes. But you don’t need to purchase the Cataclysm expansion to play in those zones. I only need the Cataclysm expansion if I want to play the new races or get into the lvl 81-85 zones.

    Just to clarify, Larissa was not the original source of that quote. Rather it came from the person looking after her blog while she’s on vacation. 🙂

    Aye, that’s an Ixobelle quote (he’s tending shop). Still a good point, and a good article.

    Nah, not a good point at all.

    For starters it’s very mistaken. To start a new character and play in the cataclysmic lands you only need to own vanilla WoW.

    Also, the price of reaching the level cap is only £28 (WoW Battlechest + Cataclysm preorder on Amazon). Starcraft 2 is £35 on Amazon.

    Games with ridiculous numbers of expansion packs (EQ1 + 2) only require you to buy the most recent box in order to open a new account.

    Is the quote so long that some commenters are forgetting the first sentence by the end? “…and reach the endgame…”
