The Cataclysm Starts Today - A New Age Has Began

It is finally here, Cataclysm has finally arrived. The third expansion of World of Warcraft has been launched today. As mentioned in my previous post so many things will be changed during this new expansion. Since there has been a lot of reports of not being able to log into the game, let's just see what really happened before the Cataclysm started.

Since I am with the Horde, let me start telling you that Garrosh Hellscream, son of Grom Hellscream, is the acting Warchief of the Horde while Thrall is in Outland to find out why Azeroth is experiencing elemental disturbances. Cairne Bloodhoof who distrusts Garrosh, challenged the latter to a duel that led to his death due to some circumstances.

On the Alliance's side, in the city of Ironforge, King Magni Bronzebeard was petrified while performing a ritual to communicate with the earth. This resulted the city under the rule of Council of Three Hammers, which consists of the Bronzebeard, Wildhammer, and Dark Iron clans.

Neltharion the Earth Warder, the dragon aspects more known now as Deathwing, emerged from the Maelstrom wrecking havoc to all of Azeroth. This resulted to coastlines destroyed while some areas were flooded like the Thousand Needles. Volcanoes also started appearing and the resulting explosions and made the lava divided most of the land forms.

With the in-game changes, the Goblins of Kezan now joins the Horde while the Worgens of Gilneas sides with the Alliance. These are the new races that can be played. The level cap was raised to 85 and a new secondary profession, Archeology, was introduced. Although there was new world added (like the Outland during the Burning Crusade, and Northrend during the Wrath of the Lich King), this expansion modified a lot of zones in Azeroth both in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdom. More quests has been added and a lot of things to do to endjoy the expansion game.

With these lot of changes to the new expansion, I can truly say that "A New Age Has Began".
