World Of Warcraft’s New Expansion Is Called Warlords Of Draenor
Before BlizzCon 2013 even kicked off, Warlords Of Draenor was a name that was being teased around the internet table. Considering the fact that Draenor is the name of the realm first seen in another World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade, it basically gave the game away that it would be the next one.
It has now been confirmed that Warlords Of Draenor is indeed the new expansion and will see players revisit the land that is now called Outland after its destruction, which was a home to the Orcs before they were summoned to Azeroth through the Dark Portal.

Most likely, players will be revisiting the Caverns Of Time in the next World Of Warcraft expansion pack. You World of Warcraft players will know what the potato is going on here.
Interestingly, it is a part of the Warcraft timeline and story that hasn’t really been fully visited in the massive MMO, but rather explained during the classic RTS games Warcraft and Warcraft 2.
Some of the new features that Warlords Of Draenor will bring are:
- World of Draenor, a new realm to explore and quest in. Likely some areas will be designed on existing Outland areas, since the two are the same.
- Garrisons. Players will be able to get their own Garrison, upgrade it in various ways and use it as a base of operations. Few details have been given on this yet.
- New character models. All legacy races – such as Orcs, Humans and Dwarves – will all have their character models reworked to be more in keeping with the game’s newer visual design, meaning if you prefer playing a classic race you won’t be stuck with early 2000 character models.
- Level cap has been raised to 100, while you can pick a character to boost to level 90 automatically – a free level 90 alt, basically.
- A new World PvP zone, a feature that hasn’t been seen as often in more recent expansion packs.
- Plans for six new dungeons and a currently unknown number of raids, as well as the usual bevy of new monsters, items and characters.
However, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns, as some let down fans have pointed out that there are no new races or classes being added in Warlords Of Draenor. Although, others may argue that exploring this uncharted territory in the story would be enticing enough. I’ll leave that up to you World of Warcraft players to decide.
