BlizzCon 2013: Major stat and item changes

BlizzCon 2013 FAQ reveals major stat and item changes
Three major changes to stats and items have been announced in the official Warlords of Draenor FAQ.

They are:
  • Hit and expertise will be removed
  • New stats will be added, including Cleave and Movement Speed
  • New armor itemization will allow easier sharing among classes
Warlords of Draenor FAQ
Q: Will you be making any changes to what Stats are available?

One of our goals for Warlords of Draenor is to make the act of finding and collecting loot even more exciting for players. With that in mind, we're adding some fun new stats to gear, such as Movement Speed and Cleave, which gives you a chance to do extra damage or healing to additional nearby targets. In addition, we'll be retiring a few stats that players don't find very enjoyable to manage, such as Hit and Expertise. We're also making improvements to armor itemization that will make it easier to share armor pieces across classes. We'll have more details to share as development continues.

We also want to note that the item squish is active on the Warlords play stations at BlizzCon.

More on this tomorrow at the systems panel, according to Cory Stockton.
