Without warning, the corrupted Dragon Aspect, Deathwing, erupts from the stone heart of Deepholm, the domain of earth within the Elemental Plane. Jagged fissures are torn across the earth, and monstrous waves pummel coastal regions. From Thousand Needles to the Blasted Lands, the surface of Azeroth is reforged through violent upheavals. Now, the Horde and the Alliance must defend their homes against Deathwing and his minions, burdened by the unsettling fact that the world as they know it has changed… forever.
Just as The Destroyer underwent a brutal transformation that left his body scarred and disfigured, so have terrible wounds been inflicted upon Azeroth. Players will notice drastically altered terrain, thousands of new quests from levels 1-60, and updated level ranges for some zones to improve the questing flow.
In the wake of a world on the brink of destruction, members of the Horde and Alliance have taken to new cultures and studies, mastering crafts previously foreign to them. Many existing playable races now have new class combinations.
The Cataclysm unearthed many artifacts and remnants of the past that have lain undisturbed for ages. Adventurers scouring the world to track down these objects gain new insights into the history of the world with each find. You can now learn the Archaeology profession and uncover the mysteries of the past.
You can now learn to use your flying mounts in Azeroth. The sky’s the limit!
Your guild can now earn small perks and bonuses ranging from small experience bonuses to summonable guild chests to even a mass resurrection spell.
