Blizzcon 2013 Opening Ceremony Announcement Recap

  • New World of Warcraft expansion is the Warlords of Draenor.
  • “when you think about all that history, all that context, a really interesting question comes to mind… What if those dark days could come again? What if a pantheon of the most viscious villans of Warcraft could threaten our homes, our ways of life again?”
  • “The conflict to come will be the alliance’s finest hour”
  • Horde “A chance to redefine yourselves in this brave new world”
  • “There will be much heroism for all”

Expansion cinematic reveal:

  • Past and the present collide
  • “A rising tide of blood and iron that will wash over this world”
  • New world: Draenor
  • Build and upgrade your garrison
  • level cap raised to 100
  • Upgraded new character models
  • New dungeons, raids, world PVP zone. New items and rewards.
  • Hundreds of new quests
  • Level boost to 90 to get you started: “Boost to 90 and play immediately”. “Come play with your friends right away.” You can boost any one character to level 90 (either a brand new character OR your existing character you haven’t played in a while).
  • No new races or classes announced in the cinematic that we could see. More announcements to come in the next panel.


Additional updates: Garrosh will escape before he can get punished. He travels back in time to Draenor to try and prevent the horde from drinking the demon blood and becoming corrupted.
