With the new Legion expansion coming out soon, Blizzard has challenged World of Warcraft legion players to find the various secrets that will be coming along with the expansion. According to the company, at least one of the secrets isn’t going to be discovered for at least six months after the expansion’s release.
World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion is something of a continuation to the Burning Crusade expansion, where Azeroth and its heroes explored Outland, the shattered remnants of the original Orc homeworld of Draenor. While the Burning Legion had only appeared several decades ago, and been defeated by Malfurion Stormrage and the united races of Azeroth, the Alliance, and the Horde.
Now, the Burning Legion is coming back, and the heroes of Azeroth must prepare to drive them back. The expansion is also getting a great deal of promotion for World of Warcraft Legion players to partake in, whether it’s the “Harbingers” video series or various snippets of information from Blizzard.
Blizzard’s challenge is quite the brag, especially when the website Wowhead exists, and has the job of making everything in the game findable with ease. The Legion secrets are only the latest that are coming for World of Warcraft; every expansion before then has had new challenges, new secret things to do. Players will likely be busy in the months after Legion’s release simply going around and running through the expansion’s main questline.
With various characters from Warcraft’s lore making a return, including Sargeras (the leader of the Burning Legion), Gul’dan the warlock, Khadgar the sorcerer, and Illidan Stormrage (best known for screaming “YOU ARE NOT PREPARED” at World of Warcraft Legion players in the Burning Crusade trailer), Legion will also be including a new character class: demon hunters. These will be the second “hero class” introduced in the game, after the Death Knights were released for Wrath of the Lich King.
Legion will release on August 30.
