Computer and Video Games interviewed Frank Pearce, Blizzard’s senior vice president of product development talking of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade and its features such as Contested PvP zones, Shaman and Paladin cross-faction and more.
Why did you decide not to introduce any brand new classes in The Burning Crusade?
Frank Pearce: Well, it wasn’t so much a factor of what we decided not to do, as where we decided to draw the line and say ‘This is more than enough’. Two new player races, 13 exterior zones, at least seven dungeon instances, the PvP arena system, outdoor PvP objectives – not to mention the items and the functionality that’s just taken for granted and all the new talents and spells and thousands of items and gear on top of that. Our hope is that we chose to draw the line at the right point.
