Our weeks in WoW

  • Event – http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/15053029/
    • Lords of War – Part 1 – Kargath
      • Story of birth of Kargath’s Shattered Hand clan

      • Iron docks – Gronn with cannons looks awesome
      • Grimrail Depot – Orcs on a train
      • Leeroy

    • Overall
      • Definitely not fluffy happy panda time
      • Host was kinda goofy
    • Release date – 11-13-14
  • The Warlords patch cycle will be similar to the Mists of Pandaria patch cycle, but some of it will depend on the timing of the next expansion.
    • “Some of it will depend on the time before the next expansion after Warlords. It is very possible that if we are successful and there is a shorter gap, then we won’t necessarily want to have multiple raid tier content patches. Each raid content patch needs about four months to breathe. Any less than that and it feels like you really rushed through the content.”
    • The content patch schedule isn’t finalized yet, as a lot of it depends on what players want to see more of once they get through the launch content. Some of it will depend on the scheduling for the next expansion.
