World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Path of the Titans and Archaeology
As I said before, there is a lot of information about what awaits us in the new addition. Video, screenshots, interviews. After Blizzard has showed the add-on trailer to the whole world, many English-language sites descended from the chain, spreading more and more new content with more and more details about the new add-on. Below is a description of innovations such as a new system of pumping the character and a secondary skill, archeology.
In Azeroth happened Cataclysm, most of the places we knew before became ruins. Consequently, such a profession as archaeology becomes a common occupation. This profession, just like the others we have, can be pumped up. As an archaeologist you will be able to visit the ruins and dig into what is left of the once flourishing cities, settlements, castles and temples. Along the way, you write some sort of "archaeologist notes" that allow you to make new discoveries. This also allows you to progress along the progression line known as the Path of the Titans.
It's worth noting that archaeology is closely related to Path of the Titans, but how and how much of an impact your progress will have in terms of exploring the cultural heritage of the past is not yet known.
There are no exact details yet, but from the looks of it, development will follow different paths. No racial or class restrictions will be imposed on these paths. As we develop our archaeologist skills we will be allowed to explore more mysterious and dangerous ruins. Depending on which path you choose, you will unlock all different abilities.
How much interesting will the blizards be able to make pumping this skill and expand the possibilities of customization and add individual traits to our character we'll see. Maybe the relentless slaying of monsters at least will be replaced by the peaceful digging in the legacy of the past with the solution of its mysteries and the restoration of cultural values.
