Warlords of Draenor gameplay

Later this year the 5th expansion for World of Warcraft - Warlords of Draenor - will be released. Ready to see it?

Warlords of Draenor will not only bring us a new land, raise the maximum level of a hero (to 100) but also add the ability to create and manage a garrison and - for many it is most important add-on - will refresh the character models and their animations. Ready to see it?

The story is too old to be commented.

I dropped WoW right after Cataclysm launched, never to pick it up again.

That said, I do have to admit that the developers have really put a lot of polish on a 9 year old game.

Someone financially minded really needs to take WoW and assess how they can make more money from the dedicated fan base.

Box price, boxed expansions, subscription, pay 2 win cash shop are all a decent start but there must be some way to squeeze out a few more drops.

there is no pay to win :) winning in wow isn't about getting to 90, it's about doing well in either pve or pvp. which the shop can't help you with

Pay to win is a pretty loose term.

For my mind paying for progress, paying to negate the need to play the game, paying for currency (yes WoW has gone experimental on that with pets you can buy for real money and sell on for gold), these things put WoW firmly in the pay to win category.

But even if your interpretation of pay to win is different to mine, you must admit that WoW utilises a whole lot of moneygrabs...

You can't sell pets for gold that you bought from the store, well you can, but it's bannable.

I agree that pay to win is a loose term. For beginners, leveling is actually fun, but for players like me who have already lvled 3 alts to 90. It's just a grind fest.

''Pet and mount codes from the Online Store

This one carries the same warnings as for game-time cards, except that there is also the additional chance that, even if your (illegally) purchased code appears to work, the player ‘selling’ you his code will then cancel his payment, chargeback the codes, and you will then be left with nothing to show for your in-game gold.''

They specifically released a pet that could be bought for cash and sold for gold a year or 2 back.

I don't know if you can still buy it or if there is still any demand for it, but without doubt it was Blizzard-endorsed gold buying. They said it was "an experiment".

EDIT: It was the Guardian Cub. Not sure if they considered the experiment a success and released more like that or not.
