But, using the RTS as background did more than cause problems, as was explained in WoW cataclysm Gold. "We were greatly helped because we were able to draw on a lot of background within WoW Cataclysm Classic," he said. WoW Cataclysm Classic franchise," said the director. "So we had all these stories and worlds. And in many ways, even early on, when we began to develop the maps and zones there was plenty to begin with."

"[Vice director of development"[Vice president of creative development] Chris Metzen had already done much of the lore of WoW Cataclysm Classic and before that, we had an early head start discussing all the various regions, Stormwind or Lordaeron," WoW Cataclysm Classic continued. "And you can feel the lore in a certain degree within the gameplay. When you consider the Eastern Kingdoms, in a number of ways, it's significantly more elaborate from an lore and backstory perspective as Kalimdor which is due to the fact that Eastern Kingdoms really had three games and expansion sets to build it up as well as Kalimdor was something completely new and exciting."

Cataclysm was not initially on Blizzard's expansion plan.

Of course the scope that an MMORPG is much greater than an RTS. This difference in scale was apparent in Blizzard's original plans for what they wanted to add to the original WOW when it launched the game in late November of 2004. According Kaplan Kaplan, Blizzard initially intended to include areas that were from The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, as well as a large portion of Cataclysm in the initial launch.

"We designed it way ahead of time," he said. "To put it in context, Outland and Northrend and many of the concepts in Cataclysm were all part the initial shipping plan for the game. Each now and then we'll encounter these moments from a planning and management perspective, when we'll think"What is it that we're actually doing and where should we be? However, part of what brings us there is staking the project for many years and always having a clear idea of where we'd like to go. That's what helps us guide the ship until we arrive there."

Outland and Northrend ended up being an element of The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm is scheduled to come out in the coming year. Oddly to be honest, Cataclysm was not the top priority for Blizzard when it first began to think about expansion possibilities.

"When we had completed the first game, we started working to expand the game," Kaplan said. "We didn't think of the one expansion we'd like to create. We asked ourselves, 'What's the most expansions that we'd like to create for this game? We wanted to create this huge list of options which we can reduce and prioritise. Outland as well as Northrend were on the list. Cataclysm is a fascinating variation from the previous list, since it was not part of the original plan for expansion that we were considering. It evolved from a myriad of interesting ideas that came together at the same time."

As per buy WoW Cataclysm Classic Gold, Blizzard's initial expansion list also indicated an unrelated release order to what players actually received. "As the truth is when we first launched WOW we first thought that we would release Lich King the first" the author said. He also noted the fact that Outland along with Northrend were listed in the list of expansions.
