World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

The new WoW expansion was announced today at Blizzcon and it will be called Warlords of Draenor. According to the Lore, Garrosh escaped from his prison and went to Draenor (where the Fel Orcs and Draenei come from) to ally with the savage orcs and rally against the Horde and Alliance. According to WoWHead:

  • Garrosh is put on trial, but before he can receive a verdict--he escapes. He has a new friend who can bend time.
  • So he decides to go back to the place in time that he likes. His intent is to redeem Orcs and purify the Horde as a whole. The most critical element of his mission is to stop the definitive moment: stopping Orcs from drinking the blood of Mannoroth.
  • Garrosh will make an army to inact revenge.

That’s the main idea. But that’s not all, there is also amazing and awesome new features:

  • Level Cap: 100
  • New World: Draenor

Draenor.

  • New Character Models

WoW New Character models

  • Create a Garrison

Garrison

The Garrison is the most amazing feature here to me:

  • Garrisons are World of Warcraft's answer to housing. You get to build a base like you would in an RTS and you get to customize it. You can even choose what zone your base will be in. You collect followers, resources, and more.
  • Garrisons will be seen while you fly over the zone. There will also be offline progression, if you assemble a group of ten followers it might take a week--and a week later they might have epic spoils.
  • Followers can get you epic gear for your character. This is your home. You get unique benefits. You get professions you don't even have--maybe you build a Blacksmith and get some ability from it. You can assign a follower to a mine so they mine for you.
  • Garrisons will grow over three tiers. When you start, it's small and then it grows. You get more plots with each expansion.
  • There will be monuments and trophies. Let's say you have The Explorer. You may get a special monument for your garrison. If you kill a rare mob, maybe you'll get its head to mount at the townhall.
  • Buildings will have specializations which will become a lot like talent trees. Maybe you have a level 3 infirmary and it will rez you once per day outside.

Anyway, sounds awesome and I can’t wait to play it. Here’s the video, BTW.
