New Alliance Race Announced!

Postby The_B » 02 Apr 2006, 12:56

Linky here

Finally, we now know the Aliance race for the Burning Legion Expansion, the Wisps! The new race will have absoutely billions of of combinations avilable, when you select it's colour and facial hair, and indeed offers some very interesting racial traits...

Image

The introduction of Wisps allows a new and exciting game mechanic: permanent death. The ability that destroyed Archimonde is available to all Wisps as a racial ability. This power, Detonate, destroys the Wisp in an explosion of energy, sapping the mana of all surrounding adventurers, friend and foe alike. This should provide an extremely interesting addition to the many adventures of Warcraft, particularly when pitted against other players!


Racial Traits:
Detonate: Destroys the wisp, dispelling all magical buffs and draining 50 mana from each unit in an area around the wisp.
Gatherer: Skill to herbalism, mining, and skinning increased by 10.
Permanent Death
Treeform: Turns the wisp into a tree for 30 seconds. During this time, spirit is increased by 300. However, the wisp’s chance to dodge or parry axes is reduced by 50%.

More information can be found on the Burning Legion website.

I for one am looking forward to this new class - could prove interesting!

P.S. I know it's a day late, but anyway: April Fools guys!

lvl 17 in BRM? uhm..


And.. "For example, if one particular Ogre's left head is named "Jonny" while the right head is named "Bob," the full name of the Two-headed Ogre and the name attached to communications with the outside world will be "JonnyBob.""

I currently play RFO and after i've finished my uni exams i'm planning on starting back at Wow as well, do you guys reckon the new alliance race will be pandarans? if so that would be proper cool. I know you're all horde so will probably go bood elf.
