World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria Difficulty Levels Detailed

Posted on October 29, 2011 AT 08:05am

THE BUZZ: Blizzard plans to introduce a wide range of difficulty levels in its upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria.

“Halo had like five difficulty levels, Civilisation had eight or something. On the hard end we want it to be at the hard end of Cataclysm, but then on the easier end we want it to be on the level of Lich King,” said Greg Street, Lead Systems Designer on WoW. ”On a harder boss we might say if you stand in the fire you will die, you cannot stand in the fire. On easier difficulty levels we might make it so you can stand in there for a while and with enough healing you can maybe just ignore it completely and stand in there, or you have enough time for someone to say, ‘Hey dude, you really should get out of that.’”

EGM’s TAKE: I think a lot of core WoW fans will be happy with an increase in the difficulty level, as many of them burn through each expansion in a matter of days.

Are you happy with increased difficulty? Leave a comment below.
