If you could reboot World of Warcraft, where would you start? What races would you include/exclude? Who would your faction leaders be? What would you change?
I sometimes come up with some good ideas. I would love to go back to before Arthas got all corrupted and razed the land with his scourge army. I would love to play way back, maybe I would go all the way back. To before Varian was leader of the alliance, to before he was captured. I doubt it would ever happen, but it would be damn cool. I’d love to play through Westfall, when Van Cleef split from Stormwind. Hell, he would make an awesome faction leader. I would even figure out a way to keep him alive. Bam, humans for the horde.
I would like to see the rift form between the high elves and those that would eventually become blood elves. Bam, high elves for the alliance.
I think Worgen and Goblin would have fit right in from the beginning. I think their stories.starter zones would be the same. This would also make it easier for them to be Deathknights.
To play when Stormwind was invaded by a Black dragon who infiltrated the ranks, to have been around when Varian got captured, to when Thrall was freed. To see all that play out. I think players would get more involved emotionally and personally in the story. Let us help build our faction, instead of merely play through it.
They could reboot it without flying. We know they don’t like flying, Ghostcrawler mentioned it when he was lead systems developer and Bashiok wrote us a cute little note about it. They could update the silly 16 slot backpack that cannot be changed without breaking the game.
- Night elf
- High elf
There would have to be some way to be able to port your character from WoW 1 to WoW 2 and they would have to address the races that are not going live with the reboot. They could add new races in with patches. The hardest part I suppose, would be figuring out how the past lore meets with the current lore. Perhaps they can figure out some Caverns of Time way of going back and playing through the original Outland and Wrath campaigns. Port Cata and Mists over and possibly Warlords.
So that’s how I would do it. What would you do? Feel free to let me know in the comments down below!
