Blizzard Comment On World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria's Difficulty

The next expansion pack to World of Warcraft, dubbed Mists of Pandaria, will introducing varying levels of difficulty according to Blizzard's lead systems designer.

"Halo had like five difficulty levels, Civilisation had eight or something," said Greg Street. "On the hard end we want it to be at the hard end of Cataclysm, but then on the easier end we want it to be on the level of Lich King.

"On a harder boss we might say if you stand in the fire you will die, you cannot stand in the fire. On easier difficulty levels we might make it so you can stand in there for a while and with enough healing you can maybe just ignore it completely and stand in there, or you have enough time for someone to say, 'Hey dude, you really should get out of that.'"

Mists of Pandaria is due to release at some point during 2012 as Blizzard look to expand their massive MMO once again.
