Today Blizzard Entertainment announced that they are beginning preorders for the upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor.
As a reminder, the new expansion will send players back in time to follow Garrosh Hellscream into the past to try and prevent the destruction of the present via the Iron Horde. WoD will allow players to level one charcter instantly to 90, will give gamers the opportunity to build their own garrison on Draenor and customize their stronghold to their liking, will provide content from levels 91 thru level 100, and usher in an entire revamp of the current playable character models up to the Worgen and Goblins. That's quite a bit of content for one expansion.
Are you on the fence about which version of the game to get? Well if you're a digital purchaser like I am, you can choose between the Standard Edition for $49.99 and the Delux Edition for $69.99. Much like previous expansions, the Deluxe Edition provides three sets of rewards, each for WoW, StarCraft II, and Diablo III.
First you'll get a WoW mount and a pet. The Dread Raven flying mount and Dread Hatchling pet are upgraded versions of the Raven Lord Mount dropping from Anzu in The Burning Crusade expansion. Considering how many months I've tried to get my own Raven Lord Mount, I consider this a must have.
Next you'll get two custom portraits for use in StarCraft II. One portrait features Grommash Hellscream (Garrosh's grandfather for those playing at home) and Blackhand. There aren't any decals this year for your character's armor, but these look pretty slick in any case. Nothing like a screaming orc to strike fear into the Dominion.
Lastly Diablo III players will get access to the banner of the Warsong Clan. Wear it with pride as you prepare to slaughter the undead hordes pouring out of the darkness.
As an added bonus, if you pre purchase the game, you can boost a character to 90 IMMEDIATELY. Yes, that's right, the boost to 90 will be active as soon as you preorder the game. This is a huge motivation to buy early, especially if you haven't played WoW in a while and want to get back into the game. If you're not the sort of person that needs a physical copy of the game to put on your shelf, I would highly suggest picking up a preorder and getting your character to 90 today.
Love the commercial. And I do want that damn mount, crap.
This will definitely get me back into WOW full steam ahead. I have been playing more lately but it's mostly for Pokecraft. My wife's 30 on the server (Rexxar) in pet collecting and I'm around 88. Man I got her hooked good. hehe
Was an interesting ad lol. I like the idea of pre-ordering the game and getting a lv.90 right away
Don't forget that if your toon is already past level 60 and you use the 90 boost on them, your two professions will be max out along with the toon getting to 90.
