    Default Warlords of Dreanor

    I just pre-purchased a digital upgrade to Warlords of Dreanor for my WoW account. (Boosted a Blood Elf Paladin to 90 on Kil'Jaeden)

    Features:
    - New continent of Draenor (7 zones, 1 PvP zone)
    - Build and upgrade your Garrison
    - A level 90 character boost
    - New player character models
    - 7 new Dungeons and 2 new Raids
    - A Heroic version of Upper Blackrock Spire
    - New World Bosses
    - New Challenge modes
    - New Battlegrounds
    - New Scenarios
    - Level cap raised to 100
    - New class talents and permanent ability bonuses
    - Major changes to stats
    - Refined quest system with hundreds of new quests
    - and MORE!?


    I don't think it will revitalize WoW to 12,000,000 players or anything but I think it will be a ton of fun for a few months.
    Anyone else going to buy it?

    I don't know, I tried going back around November and it felt really dated compared to other MMOs I was playing at the time.
    If I get bored of FFXIV and there hasn't been any new MMO launched by the time it's out then I might for at least a month
    My feet hurt and I'm having trouble peeing.

    I started playing the game just over a month ago, after avoiding it for nearly ten years, because my girlfriend wanted me to try it out. I absolutely adore it. yuniuninuniun mentioned that it feels dated. I really agree with that. But for me, it's dated in the right way. It feels like an oldschool RPG and it has a certain charm to it that's indescribable. That's based off of the graphics, however. The combat mechanics are actually far beyond a lot of modern-day MMOs -- unless you're trying to compare it to action-based combat, which would hold zero bearing, in my opinion.

    Warlords of Draenor is looking like an amazing expansion, for new and old players alike. I'm looking forward to the updated models and some of the various skill changes (and removals). It certainly won't be bringing back millions of players, but I have a feeling it'll make its mark.

    Was about to prepurchase for level 90 boost. It said I needed Mist of Pandaria. Guess I'll just finished Vani to Cata first.

    elvUI is gross.

    lol, everyone does the same - buy it, play it for about a month, realize end-game is nothing but dailies, this new trashy keep system and piss poor raiding outside of heroic raids.

    I'm going to be buying it too. Playing it right now and having a lot of fun. Hope this continues for a while so I can keep playing it along with Dota 2.

    While it may be old, it doesn't feel outdated at all due to its polish. The graphics have their own style so they don't begin to look worse over time.

    I haven't played/raided hardcore since Burning Crusade. My current play style is basically screw around and have fun doing it. When I stop having fun I take a break.

    I feel that taking the game too seriously and playing it like it's a second job is ultimately a waste of my life.
    So, no grinding daily quests for me.

    I am really looking forward to how the stat and ability changes will effect PvP. Less burst and less CC sound like a really nice change.

    Nah, leveling is just a hassle, once you've seen the content, seeing it again won't add to the experience.

    really?
    how about ultima online, asherons call, swg and even archeage?

    mmos have a choice, they can be expansive, immersive, engrossing.
    or they can take the wow-road and rely on instant gratification and carrots on sticks.

    Very true. I hate leveling through the "new" content after the 2nd time just because it takes so long to progress and I have already seen it. The first 85 levels aren't that bad because the move by pretty fast.

    The "Build and upgrade your Garrison" bit is taken directly from FFXIV's Retainer and FC Housing system by the way. That's what you'll say if you play it and play FFXIV :V

    Only plays Magic DPS Classes, Healers and Machinist/Engineers.

    GAHhhhhhh
    Sorry dude but your FFanboyism is starting to get a bit annoying...

    Anyways, not the same, at all.

    Look into the garrison feature tho, looks mighty fun, leveling up employees, upgrading different buildings for perks and profession access. Grouping your employees togetherr depending on their traits to make them run dungeons.

    FF's housing system is mostly appearance, fun to grind for but still mostly appearance.

    Here, perhaps you should watch this if you have time. // Its from the alpha obviously, but should give an idea.


    Also - a week and a half until we get the release date.
    (A bit sad I can't watch the live stream due to the fact I work that day)

    this is so stupid ... coldreactive i normaly dont say anything to your comments because they are decent but this is just ridiculous garrisons and fc housing is 2 different things ... in WoW garrisons you get everything and you can attack each others garrissons and etc ...

    if i would say that its a copy of something i would choose lineage 2 castles...

    I finally decided to give the game an in depth try and bought it. I'm on Zul'Jien Horde if anyone is able to help me learn the game. I'm willing to switch to a different NA server if you can help me out. ^^

    FOR THE ALLIANCE ! ... and go play with Abubark ... he is on NA because i think most of us is on EU

    And about learning the game ... it is quite easy just go with the flow and you will learn it by lvling and doing some dungeons but remember once the patch is out there will be huge changes less skills and etc so you will need to get used again ...
