When Blizzard Entertainment announced that it was turning one of the none-battleground regions in Northrend into a region fully dedicated to World PvP, gamers around the world sat up in their seats and awaited for more news in excitement. A whole region for PvP is every gamer’s dream come true. When Blizzard next announced that it was going to be the Wrath of the Lich King Lake Wintergrasp zone that will become the World PvP region, and that it will be a wholly different PvP experience, everyone rushed to the Internet and searched what they can about Lake Wintergrasp. By now, you may already know that the World PvP experience in Lake Wintergrasp will be different because siege machines will be used, a first for WoW. You may already have read tips and tactics about playing PvP there, so I’m not going to deal with that. Instead, I am going to give you a background of the region, just in case this information might come in handy. Who knows, right?
Wintergrasp is the region where the Lake Wintergrasp is located.
The Wrath of the Lich King Lake Wintergrasp zone is located between Sholazar Basin and Dragonblight. Below it is the Borean Tundra. A frozen and desolate land, it is no surprise that the creatures that live there try to get the best out of the land. Tauren and Taunka, for example, cut holes in the Lake Wintergrasp and fish there. Lake Wintergrasp itself is only a small part of the region. It is a frozen lake, with the ice reaching several feet deep. It is said that the water beneath the ice is so cold; anyone who falls in would freeze within one minute. So, if you’re not like the Tauren who know the lake well, then you better be careful if you do pass by there. Also, it is best to remember that although the ice appears solid, and you may see some people traversing the length of Lake Wintergrasp with carts, the ice might still break.
Knowing the information above will hopefully be useful once you get to Wintergrasp and participate in the PvP action there. According to early reports, it’s going to be fierce, bloody, and totally fun. The Wrath of the Lich King Lake Wintergrasp zone will undoubtedly be filled with players armed to the teeth and ready for PvP, but if you have intimate knowledge of the battleground, then you might have an advantage over them. Knowing about your area will perhaps help you in formulating your battle plans. Hopefully, this tidbit of information about Lake Wintergrasp will come in handy once you get to do PvP. If not, then nothing is lost, except maybe a few minutes of your time in reading this article.
