[UPDATED] Official WoW site now full Wrath

Zach Yonzon

Tipster Brad pointed out to us that the official World of Warcraft site is now full Wrath of the Lich King. All traces of the Burning Crusade have now been put in the freezer except for the forums, although we should expect to see changes there relatively soon. The old page showed images of Draenei and Blood Elves, with the World of Warcraft logo merely half-frozen, with the rest of the logo in Outland-ish green. Given that the launch of the latest expansion is less than 36 72 (oops!) hours away, Blizzard seems to have gone full throttle with the transition.

Except for the forums' Burning Crusade logo and greenish background, there are no more traces of the Burning Crusade's design on the official site. [UPDATE: The forums have changed to a Wrath of the Lich King design, as well.] Excitement is ramping up for Wrath, and we're caught up in it with a massive prize giveaway. We even redesigned the site just a few days earlier than Blizzard's minor cosmetic change. Now that the official site has gone full Wrath of the Lich King, we just might feel Arthas' influence a little more in-game. Note: if you aren't getting the Wrath page, you should try holding down the Shift key when refreshing the page. This should force the browser to get new data from the website (instead of the cache).
