Takes place in Northrend.
Appears to be about more end-game.
The new area, Northrend, is designed for 68-80. Bring your Outlands gear to conquer more of the Homeland.
Tuskarr and Taunka are Horde friendly races. No mention of new Alliance allies.
No word on any new 1-70 content. But unless they're going to add new zones or races, there won't be any.
So, you got it, new races, if any, will get their 1-20 content area, and then you go struggle in STV like your Dreanei did, and your Trolls did, and your grandpa did. Why,when I was leveling up, it was uphill, both ways, in the snow, barefoot. Nice to know you kids aren't getting any breaks!
They say they were pleased with the 60 to 70 pacing. If you recall that was beaten in 4 days, or was it a mere 24 hours?, by some French guy if I recall correctly.
That means 70-80 will be reached within a week by the usual hardcore cadre, and a month by the raiders (more guilds broken apart perhaps?), and 3-4 months by the rest of us.
It's all good though. It's WoW.
P.S. I'm not going to level my NE Hunter past 68 though. Spending months at 70 might be as non-productive as spending months at 60 was.
