BlizzCon 2013: Warlords of Draenor Revealed
“When past and present collide, the fate of all worlds hangs in the balance.” The Prophet Valen, Blizzard.
Day one reveals the fifth World of Warcraft expansion ‘Warlords of Draenor’ and with this comes some big changes to the game, not to mention the ability to explore Warcraft history by going to Draenor and living that time of the Draenei and the Orcs that up to now has only been possible through the Warcraft lore. There we find that a merciless new Iron Horde has been forged from the historic orc clans and heroes from Azeroth will be called to save their own world from impending invasion. There is so much on offer from this expansion, aside from the opportunity to go back in time, Blizzard has taken onboard feedback from the community and implemented a whole host of upgrades to the game (upgraded character models, better organisation of bags, no quest items held in bags to save space, new in-game guide based on your character, etc) the following was announced at BlizzCon 2013 for Warlords of Draenor:
- New level cap of 100
- New level 100 talents
- The ability to construct your own garrison
- The ability to customise your garrison
- The ability to recruit followers and base them at your garrison
- Your followers can be sent on missions and use their skill to assist your cause
- Instantly boost one character to level 90 to join the battle for Draenor
- New dungeons and raids
- Flexible scaling for raids
- Upgrades to existing dungeons
- New monsters
- New quests
The expansion is available to play on the floor at BlizzCon 2013, but there is no release date as yet.
