I feel bad for Asian servers to be honest. I even have a friend in China itching to play. I'm afraid they will have to wait for 5 more days before they can play the game.
As for me? I'm starting tomorrow!!!!
Let's speak a little bit about the storyline of this new expansion. Draenor is the Orc homeland, that was later deemed unlivable due to Gul'dan making the Orc clans drink the blood of Mannoroth. The once fertile lands died at the feet of the newly created Warlocks.
However, in Mists of Pandaria when Garrosh escapes from the Pandarian trial, he makes his way into The Dark Portal to go back in time to warn his father, Grommash Hellscream, not to drink Mannoroth's blood to prevent the Orcs from being enslaved by the demonic forces. And then together they form the Iron Horde. This is also what we see during WoD Cinematic Trailer.
As players, we will travel back in time, once again. But this time our task will be to stop the Iron Horde from invading Azeroth. We will have plenty more extras to help us in our duty such as Garrisons. Players will be able to construct buildings in these Garrisons that will help them grow an army to fight off the Iron Horde. However, despite there being 21 building types, our Garrisons will have space to fit only 10 of them in. So we'll customise and build according to our own will, bearing in mind the special bonus rewards we get from the buildings we choose.
The level cap is also being raised to 100 with Warlords of Draenor. So, there are plenty more to do!
Are you ready for the invasion???
