WWI '08 - WoW PvP Panel - Wintergrasp
Do you feel like smashing things? This is the zone for you!
The final World of Warcraft discussion panel at the 2008 Blizzard Worldwide Invitational was to discuss everything PvP in the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King Expansion. The panel was made up of Tom Chilton (Lead Game Designer), and Cory Stockton (Lead Level Designer) and they covered a veritable ton of PvP information. The biggest portion of the discussion was to describe the Wintergrasp PvP zone and the siege vehicles and combat that will take place there. Luckily Ten Ton Hammer was there to collect and pass on all the info!
Demolisher - Described as the baseline vehicle, has both short and long ranged attacks, has a ramming attack. It carries a driver and up to 3 exposed passengers. Because the passengers are exposed they can fight from the vehicle as normal. Meaning, mages, locks, hunters and others can stand on it and conduct what amounts to "drive by shootings" in WoW.
You can find all the information about the zone and the vehicles in our preview of Wintergrasp.
