World of Warcraft lets you turn traitor in patch 8.3 with a little help from N’zoth

Don't get too excited about the prospects

No galaxy brain here.

Yes, you will be able to turn traitor against your own faction in the next World of Warcraft patch. No, it’s probably not what you would hope for or what fans are clamoring for when it comes to faction changes; it’s all down to N’zoth. Players who kill 10 players of the opposite faction without being killed whilst in War Mode will be offered a new quest, giving the opportunity to kill another 10 players of your own faction. Players who accept will be given a sudden Old God-esque appearance and can now go to town on their own allies to earn credit.

Completing the quest earns players a toy that allows you to voluntarily turn on this PvP mode whenever you wish, as well as a new title. You remain hostile to the other faction despite this, but your own faction’s NPCs will turn neutral, rather than hostile. Also, you’ll wind up speaking a completely new language, thus obviating communication with other players. So if you’ve long wished for the option to turn traitor against your own faction, well… you sort of get something a little bit like that, only not really.

But no betrayal.

So, it’s useless to me.

Sounds like fun, granted I don’t PVP but it’s nice to shake things up a bit for PVPers that are bored.

Sounds like a safer version of the Scourge Plague from the pre-WotLK event.

Or I guess this is something they’ve done for awhile now with like Timeless Isle and Argus having similar weird tokens you could get.

Only if if you’re flagged for World PVP though.

I see blizzard learned very little from the pre-wrath event where a bunch of people took advantage of rulesets like these to grief new players.

Sounds like a trial balloon to me.

So much anger in the comments for a feature they have been doing for the last 4 expansions because it isn’t a different feature.

Seriously ? If you think that’s anger then you had better never leave the house again. For the sake of your sensitive disposition.

That’s anger?

Damn, man.

Great, so now you can get spawn camped and griefed by both factions now.

Classic Blizzard, “We know that players want this, but they only think they want it. We know what they really want and will do that instead.”

Seriously. They literally don’t learn anything from their past mistakes.
