Highlights of Warlords of Draenor include:
  • Build and upgrade your own garrison
  • New character models
  • New PvP zones
  • Level cap raised to 100

"Awesome," the next expansion will be

'Awesome,' the next expansion will be
Fresh off the Twitter-sphere today is news that the next expansion will be "awesome." What kind of awesome? Well, the kind of awesome that Rob Pardo (Chief Creative Officer at Blizzard) delivers.
