WoW: Warlords of Draenor – New Beta Invitations Sent Out
Blizzard has sent out a new wave of invitations for the upcoming beta event of its new World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion pack.
Interested parties who failed to receive an invitation in the previous givings should now immediately check their emails in hope of finding one.
According to Blizzard Community Manager Bashiok, this should be not considered as the last wave of invitations. The next batch of invites will be sent out soon enough but how soon is something he didn’t clarify.
Additionally, the game’s Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi revealed through his Twitter account that the next beta build of Warlords of Draenor would feature the two new areas Gorgrond and Talador.
“Gorgrond and Talador are on deck,” he wrote. “Spires of Arak and Nagrand to follow closely thereafter.” Later on he also tweeted that the next build would have “the Assault on the Dark Portal starting experience.”
World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is the fifth expansion pack in Blizzard’s highly successful MMO. It is set after the events of Mists of Pandaria and takes place on Draenor, the original home world of the orcs. Legendary heroes from the the game’s past lore such as Grom Hellscream, Ner’zhul and Blackhand will return.
In Warlords of Draenor, Garrosh escapes captivity to go back in time prior to the rise of the Horde. He creates an alternate timeline where he prevents the Orcs from drinking the blood of the demon lord Mannoroth, which had led to their corruption. Unified under a new banner of the “Iron Horde” Garrosh begins a war of conquest on Draenor with a Dark Portal that allows them to travel back and forth through time.
