Warlords of Draenor Shadowmoon Valley Trailer and Alpha Patch Notes
Warlords of Draenor releases this fall, and a lot has been happening in the game’s world in lieu of that.
First off, the developers have shared the alpha patch notes that sheds light on what to expect, and then they have also given us a preview trailer of the Shadowmoon Valley.
So what exactly is the Shadowmoon Valley, let’s hear it in the wordsof Blizzard Entertainment itself:
Hidden under a shroud of perpetual night broken only by bright starlight, the lush idyllic forests of Shadowmoon Valley are home to a majestic draenei tomb and sanctuary: Karabor.
While many of Shadowmoon’s denizens study prophecy among Karabor’s ancient stone circles, plotters with darker ambitions lurk in the valley’s vast underground cave network, gazing greedily at the sacred temple.
In short, it is going to be the starting point for the Alliance after they are done with the Tanaan Jungle and encountered the Iron Horde for the first time.
As beautiful as it looks in the trailer above, it is a pretty dangerous place to be at.
That being said, Warlords of Draenor has received a massive patch that might take me a day to write and another day for you to read – figuratively speaking of course.
Anyhow, some of the highlights include a new Garrison building feature where you can recruit followers and embark them on missions, a new row of talents for level 100 and smaller numberings of character stats.
Secondary stats called Bonus Armor, Multistrike and Readiness have been introduced while Hit and Expertise has been removed. Adjustments have been made to the pace of healing, agility, strength and intellect while racial traits have also been tweaked.
Redundant buffs and debuffs have been removed while some others have been merged, and a lot of pruning has been done to lesser used abilities.
Last but not the least, Vengeance is now called Resolve, and it doesn’t increase damage dealt – it does pump up tank self-healing though.
