Highmaul Preview, Changes to Dungeon Loot, Warlords Tumblr
2014/11/20 at 12:06 PM
Blizzard has been doing a ton of creative promotion for Warlords—we’ve had a gigantic Gorehowl
smashing a plaza in Shanghai
taxi in NYC
, as well as
, a fake real estate site for Garrisons.
The latest addition is
, a tumblr with funny observations on Warlords and a pastel page.
Upcoming Dungeon Changes and Hotfixes
Blizzard posted several big upcoming changes to dungeons tonight:
Warlords dungeon loot is reverting to Need before Greed instead of personal loot. Queueing with a premade group still allows you to enable the personal loot option.
50 Garrison Resources are awarded for completing your first random Warlords Heroic Dungeon of the day.
There is a hotfix preventing people from queueing in PvP areas to avoid scaling gear up to boost ilvl requirements. However, this incorrectly affected Stormshield and Warspear, so a fix is being looked at.

2014/10/01 at 12:10 PM
This guide covers all the content and system updates coming in the Warlords of Draenor prepatch--
the expansion hits.

documenting everything that’s going away if you want to obtain some vanity gear and achievements before it’s too late!

Tier 17 Boss Loot Tables
The Warlords of Draenor dungeon journal was updated yesterday with loot tables.
is 10 ilvls lower than
Raid Finder loot is ilvl 640 in
, ilvl 650 in
and is different than the other difficulties--the trinkets are not as overpowered, no tier gear drops, and different models.
Normal loot is ilvl 655 in
and ilvl 665 in
Heroic loot is ilvl 670 in
and ilvl 680 in
Mythic loot is ilvl 685 in
and ilvl 695 in
The following bosses in
drop Tier 17:
drops tokens like
Essence of the Iron Protector
which presumably turn into any tier piece, similar to
Essence of the Cursed Protector
Note that Kargath and Gruul appear to share loot--this is most likely a bug on Blizzard's end as the in-game journal has the same issue.
Wowhead Interviews Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas on Warlords of Draneor PvE
2014/05/03 at 11:36 AM
Last update 8am EST: Added Blizzard clarification on the quality of gear from Garrisons.

Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas

Blizzard's Warlords of Draenor Raiding Plans
2014/04/30 at 12:03 PM
Raiding in Warlords of Draenor
The final part of Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas' Raiding Blog has been posted, covering raiding going forwards in Warlords of Draenor.
Wowhead will be interviewing Ion Hazzikostas on Friday morning
, so if you have questions you'd like us to ask, let us know in the comments below, or email Olivia on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The key points are as follows:
LFR will have different gear sets and associated art. If you want to see the LFR models, you can
view them on any race in the Wowhead Model Viewer
The rate of LFR gear drops will be almost doubled compared to today
The devs are trying to minimize the elements that have made guild raiders feel like they needed to do Raid Finder each week
LFR gear will not have set bonuses
LFR will have trinkets, but they will be more similar to more basic dungeon versions than raid versions.
Each raid difficulty will have its own weekly lockout. This means that completing a boss on any difficulty will not mean you can't do it on another. So, if you kill a boss on Normal, you can also kill him on Heroic and Mythic. Killing a boss on a given difficulty only locks you out of repeating that kill on that same difficulty in the same week.
