Skyreach – Dungeon preview

Skyreach

Skyreach is the first dungeon I manage to test successfully in Beta realms without disconnects and major problems. This dungeon looks amazing. The arakkoa architecture is really one of a kind, with plenty of details and bright colors that will make you stop from time to time just to look around. The run was made Read the rest »

Talador WoD Beta Preview

Talador_05

Talador is an area where old Burning Crusade players will see how Shattrath City, Auchindoun and their surroundings really looked like. You can not compare the feel of Terokkar Forest with the Talador one, but if you remember that area you’ll see some similarities in Talador. This is the hope of Draenei and most of Read the rest »

Frostfire Ridge WoD Beta Preview

Frostfire_Ridge_15

Right after finishing the event from Tanaan Jungle, horde players will reach Frostfire Ridge (the alliance players will go to Shadowmoon Valley). The environment is pretty harsh here. The area is filled with snow, ice and volcanic rocks.  The structures are mostly Ogers made but with a big influence from the Iron Horde. Even if Read the rest »

Tanaan Jungle is the area around the Dark Portal, making this the first zone both Alliance and Horde players will step into when going to Draenor.

  This small addition to Warlords of Draenor will make a lot of people happy. Especially those who are playing on older machines.

It took us a while to start with the Garrisons previews, but we have to start somewhere, aren’t we? As you might know the current state of the Warlords of Draenor Alpha is really limited, but we could take a good look over the new garrisons feature. We will focus on the Garrisons UI at Read the rest »

First look over the Toy Box feature

WoD_Toy_Box_UI_1

A few days ago we wrote about the upcoming Toy Box, the new Warlords of Draenor ‘s feature, and yesterday we looked over it in the Alpha realms. You can find this feature next to the Pet journal and the Mounts and here you’ll be able to keep all the vanity items you received from Read the rest »

Mounts UI in WoD Alpha

WoD_Mounts_UI

As you can see the Mounts User Interface is a bit different from the one we have in game at the moment and I’m sure this is not even it’s final form (heh). The following are the main changes I could notice: Like the Pet Journal, now we have a bit of flavor and the Read the rest »

Blizzard just published an official preview for one of the most interesting and anticipated Warlords of Draenor’s features: The Garrisons. We wrote about the garrisons in the past but there are still a lot of things we don’t know about them and I guess everyone is waiting for the Horde artwork and buildings. But let’s Read the rest »
