Warlords of Draenor: New info from PAX East

Elekks on Draenor
PAX East 2014 has come and gone, but we at WoW Insider have come away from the weekend with juicy new information to share with you about Warlords of Draenor. During the expo, I sat down for a chat with senior game designers Steve Burke and Brian Holinka, lead class designer Kris Zierhut, and other developers.

In our brief time together, they told me some exciting info about garrisons, raiding, transmog, and the expansion's starting experience. They also provided insight into what a boosted level 90 will experience after the expansion launches.

Please note that mild spoilers about the early story of Warlords of Draenor will follow. Join me after the break for all the new info!

Scroll of Resurrection retired

Spectral windrider
The Scroll of Resurrection, a longstanding incentive for current WoW plays to bring lapsed players back into the fold, is reaching the end of its tenure. On February 18th, one week from today, the Scroll will be removed from the game and no longer available to send. Players who have received Scrolls by that point will have up to 30 days from the day it was sent to activate it.

If you or someone you know has been considering returning to the game, now might be the time to make the jump. The Scroll's perks include a fancy Spectral Gryphon or Windrider for the sender, and 7 free days' of game play for the recipient.

Mists of Pandaria: 'What has changed?' makes class changes more palatable

Image
One of the sharpest double-edged swords in Blizzard's arsenal is the constant iteration to class and play design that comes with each World of Warcraft expansion. On the one hand, players like innovation and new mechanics and spells to keep their favorite class fresh. On the other hand, players could reject the changes as too severe or too different from the class they originally set out to play, as was the case with Alex Ziebart and myself with paladins in Cataclysm. It's a risky move to change up the core mechanics of a class, and the introduction of the "What's New" window helps streamline this occasionally daunting issue.

New and old players alike will benefit greatly from the "What has changed?" tab. Simply open up your spellbook and click on the last tab at the bottom. You'll be greeted with a new screen giving you the run down on some of the biggest changes to your class coming in Mists of Pandaria.
