More Wrath of the Lich King Previewing from ShackNews

Posted Wed, Aug 08, 2007 by Cody Bye

Playing WoW in a Yaris....Neat!

ShackNews, ever entertaining in their humorous prose, has posted a new preview of Wrath of the Lich King. This preview provides a humorous view at the new gamer's entrance into Northrend and how he was utterly destroyed in his attempts to hunt monsters in the area.

I chose a prefabricated Undead Mage, who came equipped with piddly blue items and a purple mount, the Yaris of the Warcraft lot. The thing kept breaking down at all the wrong times, with boars and Viking-men repeatedly dismounting and punishing me for my carelessness, eventually rusting my armor to the point of no repair. As a result, my playtime consisted of a set of multiple excursions to all corners of the Howling Fjord zone, where I would inevitably encounter some new level 72 enemy that would do my poor Mage in. This preview is an account of these doomed trips, like an apocalyptic version of National Geographic.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
