The Legion expansion will introduce a new hero class, Demon Hunter. This will be the game’s first addition to the hero class since the Death Knight which was attached to the massively popular Wrath of the Lich King in 2008. The expansion will also tweak a few established game rules. It will increase the player level cap from 100 to 110, update and optimize the engine graphics and add a new area to the game’s map called the Broken Isles. Complete with unique enemies, dungeons, and raids. As an established rule with WOW all will abide by the player’s current level.
The trailer above showcases the new areas, one of such note is the Nordic looking city known as Stormheim, Tauren hideaway Highmountain and a ruined Night Elf city called Suramar. Watchers will also notice the Demon Hunter showcased as well as a look at the new dungeons, raids and features as mentioned above.
Players who pre ordered Legion will be granted a boost of one of their characters’ levels to 100 and try out the Demon Hunter class on August 9th, before the expansion launches on August 30th. The hotly anticipated class starts at level 98. So it is imperative that players who need to level up do so or miss out on the class at launch.
