'World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor' Bonus Weekend Now, New Expansion Revealed Next Week

by Rainier on July 31, 2015 @ 8:25 a.m. PDT

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor sends players to the world of Draenor at a pivotal moment in history to fight against and alongside legends from Warcraft’s brutal past.

Across Draenor's savage jungles and battle-scarred plains, Azeroth's heroes will engage in a mythic conflict involving mystical draenei champions and mighty orc clans, and cross axes with the likes of Grommash Hellscream, Blackhand, and Ner’zhul at the height of their primal power. Players will need to scour this unwelcoming land in search of allies to help build a desperate defense against the old Horde’s formidable engine of conquest—or else watch their own world’s bloody, war-torn history repeat itself.

To help new and returning players answer the call to arms on Draenor, the expansion will enable anyone to instantly boost one character to level 90, including a newly created character, quickly getting them up to speed and ready to enjoy the latest content with their friends.

To establish a foothold on Draenor once they’ve arrived, the displaced champions of the Horde and Alliance will be able to construct their own Garrison, an expandable, customizable stronghold that will serve as each player’s personal base of operations throughout the course of the expansion. As the Garrison grows, players will be able to recruit NPC allies and followers to take up residence, gathering resources and embarking on missions on the player’s orders.

Blizzard will be unveiling the next expansion for World of Warcraft at gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany. We hope you’ll join us at our booth in Hall 7 of the Koelnmesse to watch the announcement live on Thursday, August 6 at 18:00 CEST.

The reveal event will also be streamed live here.

Through the end of the day on Monday, it’s a fine time to venture into Draenor dungeons, as this week’s Bonus Event rewards you with reputations gains when you defeat dungeon enemies on Heroic and Mythic difficulties. Make sure to pick up the event-only quest Emissary of War in your Garrison before you head out. It rewards an Iron Fleet Treasure Chest (containing one Hellfire Citadel Heroic quality item) that you won’t want to pass up.

Earlier this week, we asked you to choose your favorite boss encounter in Draenor dungeons. Cast your vote here!

Warlords of Draenor will also introduce fully revamped player character models and animations for many of World of Warcraft’s existing playable races , bringing the orcs, humans, and several other longtime residents of Azeroth up to the visual standards of newer races while still maintaining their iconic style and identity.

Along with these new features, World of Warcraft players will enjoy a wide array of new content on their way to the new level cap of 100, including new Zones, Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios, Battlegrounds, and more. Warlords of Draenor will also introduce questing improvements designed to encourage exploration and add unpredictability to players’ ongoing adventures.
