BlizzCon 2013 is now drawing to a close and a few World of Warcraft announcements have been made.

A new World of Warcraft expansion entitled Warlords of Draenor.

It is the era of an Old Horde, forged with steel rather than fel blood. A union of great orc clans, the Iron Horde, tramples the planet Draenor beneath terrifying war machines. Azeroth falls next. Worlds uncounted will follow.

You must mount a desperate charge on Draenor – savage home of orcs and adopted bastion of stoic draenei – at this pivotal moment. Your allies are legends from across time; your fortress a foothold in an alien land. Lead the armies of one world against another…before the future itself is unmade.

The expansion includes:

  • Level cap increased to 100
  • Upgrade 1 character to level 90
  • New Character Models
  • Garrisons
  • New Questing system along with new quests
  • New Zones

If you have been wanting an excuse to fire that subscription back up, I would say now is the time. Or if you have been wanting to get into the game, but have been put off by all the level grinding you would have to do, just to be able to join your friends. Well, with the character boost to level 90, I would say it’s a good opportunity to be able to get into the game.

I think fans of WoW will join me in saying the character design has been long overdue. So I am really pleased to see these:

The new zones map will also get your Dwarven hammer a twitching.


Ok, enough of me drooling over Warlords Of Draenor.
