Product Description

Edition: Standard Edition

Fans of World of Warcraft, prepare for Blizzard Entertainment's next installment -- World of Warcraft: Wrath of King Lich. In this latest expansion, something is afoot in the cold, harsh northlands. The Lich King Arthas has set in motion events that could lead to the extinction of all life on Azeroth. The necromantic power of the plague and legions of undead armies threaten to sweep across the land. Only the mightiest heroes can oppose the Lich King and end his reign of terror.

The tuskarr, a walrus-like race of nomadic fisherman, inhabit the icy Borean Tundra. View larger.

Half-giant warriors, the vrykul, once inhabited the land. View larger.

You'll enjoy exploring Northrend and all its environments and dungeons. View larger.

Explore Northrend and battle the Lich King with World of Warcraft's first hero class character -- The Death Knight. View larger.

Many strange and terrifying creatures inhabit this frozen continent. View larger.
Enter the Death Knight
This expansion adds a host of content to the already massive existing game world. Players will achieve soaring levels of power, explore Northrend (the vast icy continent of the Lich King), and battle high-level heroes to determine the ultimate fate of Azeroth. As you face the dangers of the frigid, harsh north, prepare to master the dark necromantic powers of the Death Night -- World of Warcraft's first Hero class. No longer servants of the Lich King, the Death Knights begin their new calling as experienced, formidable adversaries. Each is heavily armed, armoured, and in possession of a deadly arsenal of forbidden magic.

If you have a World of Warcraft account with a character of at least level 55, you will be able to create a new level-55 Death Knight of any race (if on a PvP realm, the Death Knight must be the same faction as your existing character). And upon entering the new world, your Death Knight will begin to quest to level 80, gaining potent new abilities and talents along the way. This expansion allows for only one Death Knight per realm, per account.

New Environments in Northrend Await
Journey through the remote, diverse lands of Northrend and explore Dragonblight, Grizzly Hills, Borean Tundra, and Howling Fjord. Named for bones of perished dragons and majestic shrines to the fallen creatures, Dragonblight is an arctic wasteland surrounded by dense forests.

Not everything is frozen in Northrend. The lush mountains of Grizzly Hills are the ancestral home to the furbolgs, who have grown accustomed to relative peace. Although their tranquility is being challenged by trappers, goblins, and ice trolls, Grizzly Hills remains a vast and dangerous wilderness.

The south-western tip of Northrend is home to the sprawling Borean Tundra. The Horde has established a dominant presence in this icy portion of the continent and has formed a bond with the tuskarr, a walrus-like race of nomadic fisherman. Magical energy is afoot in the region, and it has caused increased tension.

High above the Great Sea at the south-eastern tip of Northrend lies the Howling Fjord. Ancient mythology holds that a race of half-giant warriors, the vrykul, once inhabited the land, founding a prosperous civilization. They mysteriously vanished, leaving deserted villages and abandoned temples. In present times, the Alliance and the Horde have come to Howling Fjord to confront the Lich King. Strangely, this has prompted the return of the vrykul, who are attacking the Alliance and Horde settlements. Howling Fjord presents a difficult challenge on two fronts: withstanding the vrykul's onslaught and battling the evil Lich King.

A Multitude of Monsters
Strange and terrifying creatures inhabit the frozen continent of Northrend, such as Nerubian Viziniers, Plague Eruptors, Shoveltusks and Flesh Giants, to name just a few. Half-spider, half-humanoid, the viziniers utilize sorcery and high intelligence to emerge as the rulers of Nerubians' underground kingdom. The Plague Eruptors are walking corpses created by the Lich King's evil experiments to spread horror and chaos across the living world.

Massive curved antlers make it easy to identify the Shoveltusks. These grumpy beasts are very dangerous, territorial, and best left alone. The Flesh Giants are nothing short of nightmarish abominations. Cobbled together from the pieces of giant body parts, the Flesh Giants employ tremendous strength to carry out the Lich King's wishes.

The World of Warcraft: Wrath of King Lich expansion pack allows you to engage in epic siege warfare. The pack presents the first Hero class and allows you to transform your Death Knight's look with character customisation that even includes hairstyles and dances. You'll enjoy exploring the Northrend and all its environments and dungeons, filled with some of the deadliest creatures -- and greatest treasures -- on all of Azeroth.

This expansion level is now included in the basic "battlechest" of the game World of Warcaft Battlechest so no need to purchase seperately as the game key (cd key) is no longer valid.

The Collectors edition can still be used to gain access to collectors edition items however.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game was great once 14 Dec. 2013
By Pye
Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this when Blizzard respected their customers and made games they enjoyed playing, that gamers enjoyed playing. I cannot tell you how much of my life I spent, some might say wasted, in Icecrown Citadel it was the best expansion pack of WoW ever.

The expansion after this killed World of Warcraft and I find it rather ironic I'm writing a review on a game I gave up playing in November 2012.

This game was awesome, once. This expansion pack IS awesome...shame the game sucks now though

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrath of the Lich King 17 Sept. 2008
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played the beta from it's opening in July, I have had an oppertunity to see what the developers have been hard at work doing since Blizzcon last year. To my surprise, the results are extroindary. As they have stated on many an occasion, they have taken the good from Burning Crusade and ran with it. The quests and storyline are fresh and rarely feel tedious, the environments are stunning and the music really helps you feel immersed in the experience.

Alot of people were dissapointed with Burning Crusade and I can happily say that Wrath of the Lich King has looked back, seen the issues that the previous expansion had and moved in the opposite direction. The Death Knight hero class, which at first to me seemed inappropriate and a possible lore killer, fits in reasonably well with the story and the starting zone really makes you feel as though you are playing the very first hero class.

Some things from the old world have been changed to reflect storyline changes (E.G the removal of Lady Katrana Prestor A.K.A Onyxia from Stormwind and the return of the King.) which is refreshing and makes the game feel alot less static. In addition a new mechanic has been added that allows for a story to progress through questing that changes the environment on a client side level so that only those that have reached that point can see the changes. (An excelent example of this is during the Death Knight starting quests and later in Northrend.) which again makes you feel really immersed in the story that is being told.

This addition to an already amazing game takes the War in Warcraf to a whole new level, while in Northrend you will really feel as though your actions could really save Azeroth.

5.0 out of 5 stars My experiences 14 Dec. 2010
By Fjollak
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For new WoW players i would like to show you what i did to get the maximum from the game on all levels. I stayed with the original World Of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade expansion pack and levelled up to 70 whilst exploring all the instances in the burning crusade. There is no point in staying at level 60 for a while to explore the storyline of the "Original Wow" as blizzard have got rid of nearly all of the interesting things in it but i found that much of the content from The Burning crusade remained so I didn't buy Wrath of The Lich King just yet. This was personally a great idea as i explored so much of the burning crusade content at level 70 and got loads of epics. Many people also admit that the dungeons at level 70 in Burning Crusade require more skill than those of Wrath Of The Lich King which prepared me greatly for the challenges to come when i joined the realm of the Lich King and when you stay at level 70 and get epics, you will get a lot of recognition from other players which felt quite good. Also i would advise it because if you think "what is the point in getting an expansion pack if I'm going to skip it to the next?" It feels as if it is a real waste so i would advise to get the burning crusade, stay on that level for a while, explore the content reasonably briefly or in detail if you please then after a while or IF you get bored, move on to WOTLK and start levelling again and you will feel fairly used to the new content and greatly prepared. Personally this worked great for me and i hope you found this review useful. Have a fun time playing!

Well ordered the game 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting, in the meantime I'm no longer able to level my main characters until i receive this expansion pack... yes the games got its good and bad points but I'm certainly not here to review something that's been released for nearly 2 years now. I'm here to make others aware of the shoddy delivery service and hoping that if and when it does eventually arrive that it's the genuine article as there's a few recent reviewers that have had problems with this provider, due to games that must have been opened and resealed it seems.
Only wish I had done two things 1) checked out the reviews in more detail and 2) not canceled my order from another website because I thought it was going to take to long... which sucks big time as I'd have it way before now.
