World of Warcraft: Blizzard Previews Tol Barad

Posted Wed, Nov 17, 2010 by Saia

The one thing we all learned from Wrath was that every kind of World of Warcraft player - even die-hard PvEers like me - loved Wintergrasp. We also learned that, on most servers, the Horde are also a heck of a lot better at it than the Alliance but that’s for another time. Blizzard’s own Zarhym has posted the latest in a series of previews looking at new zones and this time it’s focusing on Tol Barad, Cataclysm’s new PvP zone.

Located off the Eastern Kingdoms, Tol Barad is one of the aspects of the next expansion that will help to reorientate the Horde versus Alliance mentality from the original game. Each side has a hub - where you can level rep with either Baradin’s Wardens or Hellscream’s and purchase pets and the much anticipated Spectral Wolf and Spectral Steed. Yes, never mind about the PvP mechanic, just give me the chance to grind for new pets and mounts; I’m happy. Anyway, head on over to the new WoW community site to get the heads up on this fascinating new zone.
