I’m going to give two answers once again today as I’m not 100% certain what defines “official.” If we’re talking about cinematic trailers, then there is excited like I was for Wrath of the Lich King. But then there’s “oh #*$&” like I was when we got the Cataclysm trailer.
I was pretty well excited with terror when I saw that for the first time. Even when the expansion was announced and we got “there can be no peace. Deathwing…has returned.” He’s just a monolith of evil. Now, we’ll ignore how the whole expansion played out in terms of living up to that excitement. But it was still a pretty sound trailer for Neltharion coming back to the surface of Azeroth.
If we’re going to include the Patch trailers, then it’s a completely different story. The trailer for 3.1 (Ulduar) that I posted earlier this week is a great one. But, when it comes to the preview videos for all the patches of WoW, there isn’t one that captures the content or delivers as well as 2.3 did.
I knew nothing about Zul’jin when I came into the game, pretty much right after this patch went live. But man, this trailer made me want to. Whoever wrote the dialogue just captured everything so well, and the voice work was phenomenal for it. Yes, Ulduar is a close second, but I don’t think another patch trailer comes even close.
