Next Expansion: Warlords of Draenor

Whirlybirds on Draino

Well that was my argument as well but apparently they have put all their wow developers purely on the expansion such that they havent released a major patch in months due to the programmers working on WoD.

My other issue is also the fact that Blizz are working on 3 other titles and you wouldn't want them all released at the same time either. You have Hearthstone, Heros of the Storm (HotS but not to be confused with SC2: HotS) and D3: RoS. Going to be quite busy in Blizzard's Marketing department next year.

It doesn't matter if Blizzard puts all the WoW Devs into working on the latest Xpac, they have to release a BETA or shit will hit the fan a lot worse than usual when it comes to releasing their games. An example of screw ups by Blizzard is D3's release, AQ event back in WoW Vanilla and SC2 Achievement problems, this list could go on.

Expect this to come out around March, any sooner and you are just putting yourself through hell because of the amount of crappy bugs/issues. I wish you players GL if it's release around december without a BETA been launched, I really feel for you.

I am thinking it will follow the previous xpacs and release around Sept to Nov next year. Seeing as they have released the 3 raid already they may release another smaller raid to bide the time. However, iirc somebody in this thread said they wanted to release xpacs faster, so i the beta test starts soon, we may be looking at a June-July release date.

I would like to smash out the raids and see the content before the next xpac. But doubt I will have the time these days.

Didn't Blizz say they are looking to release the xpac a lot faster than previous xpac announces to release date.

Personally I am expecting WoD to be released in the first half of next year. Possibly April

Blizz will release WoD within a month window of TESO and Wildstar. They can't afford to dilly dally. I suspect that's why they've pulled developers off patch 5.5 and put them onto WoD.

There are 2 Velen's going on throughout the new expansion as it is the Velen from 32 or so years ago, confusing. Some how "our" current Velen still exists. The Velen from Draenor dies not our azeroth one. Strange.

Ah OK! Game looks pretty sweet though, right?

Gfx look tuned up again and the dwarf model in game looks great.

From going through the screenshots i like the feel of the zones. They have updated the quest system too to have area based bonus objectives.

I'll definitely be playing this through to experience the alternate universe.

Yeh it looks pretty cool, will be resubbing when this is released like I normally do, will probably just get to 100 then see how I like it. New character models look really good

They all look cool! Im still waiting on Female Nelf and Female Troll :(


Fem nelf is highly anticipated. Little sad they probably won't have time to do draenei given the large role they play in the lore this expansion.

Yea I am disappointed they won't be doing Draenei, I just hope they do not look out of place compared to new models... Then again, I probably won't even play lol
