After a few thousand quests completed in the classic world of Azeroth and then followed by the new content in Outland, players are ready for some variety in their quests and Blizzard has decided to oblige their players by adding a whole slew of new types of quests this time out in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack. Since the expansion pack was announced, there has been rampant speculation about what might appear in the new content – now we know and it looks like quite a bit of fun new quest types to try out.

In general, most previous quests for World of Warcraft involved killing a set number of mobs or looting a set number of items. Creativity was in there, but volume of quests would often bury it. With Wrath of the Lich King, the gathering and Kill Quests are back of course, but now you will be presented with a whole slew of new quest types to spice things up a bit, including:

Siege Weapons and Vehicles – They’re not just available for PvP – they’re going to be making up a number of your normal quests as well.

Chasing Mobs – This quest type will allow you to chase down mobs and capture them instead of just killing them.

Lore and Past Quests – Not just in the present, but the past as well. Think of Caverns of Time but in the live game world and with your normal quests.

This is just a taste of all the new content that has been added to the quest charts for Wrath of the Lich King. In addition, Blizzard has added a whole slew of new Daily Quests that are available starting at Level 68, meaning you can do them without your flying mount from the second you set foot into Northrend. In general, your options have been increased many times over, making it so that you can enjoy the game from dozens of new angles – just wait until you start white water rafting.
