Blizzard Entertainment has just launched Legion, theÂ sixth expansion for its acclaimed MMORPG World of Warcraft. Players will find Azeroth facing impending doom as the warlock Gul'dan summons forth the Burning Legion, a demonic army more powerful than any the Horde or the Alliance have ever faced.
To stop the Legion's invasion, players must embark on a quest to
unlock the secrets of the Broken Isles, seek out and master Artifact weapons of
legendary might, and rally like-minded champions to their cause in their Order
Halls. In this desperate hour, they must also strike a forbidden pact with the
outcast Demon Hunters of the Illidari, fel-twisted disciples of the dreaded
Illidan the Betrayer.
To aid players on their quest to save Azeroth, a number of new features and content, plus a brand new hero class have been added:
New Hero Class: Demon Hunter-Unleash Havoc in the form of devastating and dextrous attacks, or seek Vengeance and use your demonic powers to protect allies from harm. Demon Hunters begin their quest at level 98, so you can quickly join the battle on the Broken Isles.
Weapons - Mighty class-specific weapons from Warcraft lore-such as
Ashbringer and Doomhammer-grow in power after acquiring them as players use
them in battle against the Burning Legion.
Halls - Players can gather with fellow members of their class and
plan Azeroth's resistance against the Legion. Players can command troops and
champions of their class order-which include iconic Warcraft characters-to
carry out missions to further their cause.
Quests - Experience a vast and ever-changing array of adventures for
max-level characters. Hunt for rare treasures and spontaneously join forces to
conquer elite bosses, and much more.
New Continent: The Broken Isles-Explore new zones that dynamically scale to the players' level, a new feature concocted by Blizzard to enhance player levelling experience. Brave the vrykul realm of Stormheim, where mythic titan Keepers clash for control; unlock the secrets of the night elf ruins of Azsuna; free Val'sharah from the grip of the Emerald Nightmare-the path is for the players to forge.
Boost to Level 100 - Head straight to the front lines of the battle against the Legion with an included level-100 character boost. Try out different classes before commit to boosting, with Legion's new Class Trial feature.
Honor System - Earn all-new PvP-specific powers as you advance through the
new Honor system, and earn rewards that benefit players whether they are
hardcore in the Arena, on the Battlegrounds, or engaging in PvE content.
