To coincide with the Blizzcon conference, Blizzard Entertainment has released details of the next expansion to be called World of Warcraft - Warlords of Draenor. The adventure is set in the past when the asteroid 'Outlands' was a whole planet. Outlands is where adventurers go when they are about 58 -> 68. Unlike the old Outlands, the new continent will allow you to level up to 100 rather just up another 5 levels which they had been doing in the previous two expansions. People who buy the expansion will get a level 90 straightaway so that they can experience the new expansion without having to level up from level 1 for any new additional characters. There will be seven new zones including updated Shadowmoon Valley and Nagrand
The story is that Garrosh Hellscream, the end boss in 'Mists of Pandaria' has escaped trial and travelled back in time to change the course of history. Both the Horde and the Alliance will travel back to stop him. Garrosh went back to Draenor because it is the ancestral home of the Orcs before they came through the Dark Portal to attack Azeroth.
There are no new races or classes as there had been in previous expansions, just new features. For example, new features include Garrisons which can be customised according to your own personal requirements. In the Garrison, you will be able to see awards for your achievements, e.g. a head on a stick or statue for your kill as an example. There will be six new dungeons and an update of Upper Black Rock Spire, the classic dungeon. 10/25 man raids will now be merged into one raid type and all will be flex 20 called Mythic. More information on the expansion can be found on the WowHead site.
Races such as Dwarves, Orcs and Gnomes have been updated, for example, Dwarven males are more hairy than before. At the time of the press release, only the three races below have been released.
