With the new expansion, players were able to level up to 80, an increase from the previous level cap of 70. The major new addition in Wrath of the Lich King is the continent of Northrend, which serves as the main setting of the expansion, and is home to the eponymous Lich King: the final boss of the expansion. Several new game mechanics were introduced, such as the new death system, which allows players to resurrection their fallen comrades as ghosts in the world to help them complete quests; and the introduction of the Inscription profession, which provides players with new ways to customize their spells and abilities.
