Blizzard Entertainment is preparing to launch Warlords of Draenor Beta Servers very-soon!
In addition, when you pre-order the Digital download of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, you gain the ability to boost a character to level 90 at the moment of purchase (before the expansion’s release date) when Blizzard enables digital presales (soon) — includes Standard Digital and Digital Deluxe pre-purchase versions. Check out the details here.
Blizzard recommends players to go to their Battle.net account page. Visit the Beta Profile page by clicking this area:
In the next page, make sure you have opt-in to all Blizzard games including World of Warcraft.
The best venue to get into Warlords of Draenor beta is to enable opt-in within your Battle.net Account Page. However, it is by far the only option to get a beta key. Fansites and Gaming networks usually giveaway beta keys provided by Blizzard Entertainment.
Keep an eye on Blizzplanet and fellow fansites over the next few weeks or months.
The Iron Skyreaver mount is now available through the World of Warcraft in-game store. This mount is inspired by the Warlords of Draenor expansion and wears Iron Armor and a dual goblin-rocket engine. During its flying animations it will randomly rotate in the air and accelerate its engine leaving a visible fiery trail.
Jinx launched a promo to gift a Kobold Miner Hat Plush for only $10 for Valentine’s Day — while supplies last.
The sale Ends on February 28, 2014 and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Duncan Jones began the recording of the Warcraft Film on January 13th, and barely 24 hours later the teasing has begun: “Love big film sets! Always have. Just had a lovely wander through Durotan’s hood. Off to another set next!”– said Duncan.
This might only mean one out of two possible locations. The first thought to cross a lore fan when he/she reads “Durotan’s hood” is: Frostfire Ridge in Draenor.
Some of the Frostfire Ridge screenshots given to us at BlizzCon 2013 can be found here. So the Durotan’s hood (stands for: neighborhood) should look similar to the BlizzCon screenshots. The RedShirtGuy wrote a Blizzplanet article about his hands-on gameplay experience at BlizzCon 2013.
If the film story is set to start with images of both planets, and Durotan is in Frostfire Ridge at the beginning of this story — what we will likely experience in the film’s initial 30-minutes is the opening of the Dark Portal. Of course, these scenes could be flashbacks too.
The second Durotan’s hood was in Azeroth … that was the Alterac Valley (known by PvP players as one of the Battlegrounds). The problem with this is that we already saw a concept art showing Draenor. Thus, the first option sounds more likely to be the script’s aim, and what Duncan meant.
Would you want more teasers from Duncan? If so, join the discussion on twitter.

Blizzard Entertainment and its partners release Blizzard licensed products every year. Some of these products come in the shape of novels, eBooks, graphic novels, action figures, dioramas, statues, children’s books, and epic weapons. Did you know from Fall 2013 to Winter 2014 there are so far 41 Blizzard Licensed Products?
There isn’t an official list of recent and upcoming products. Therefore, I will share a permanent list of recent and upcoming products for which you can pre-order now and relax later knowing that you secured your copy and it will automatically be charged and delivered on release date.
Some of the products were released already, and I felt I should mention them in case you missed them. They are in stock while supplies last and shipping now.
The Fall 2013 – 2014 Blizzard Licensed Products line up is as follows: (click links to reach the pre-order page)
Sideshow Collectibles featured a special video sneak peek preview of the upcoming Sideshow Collectibles Deathwing Statue. Too fast for your eyes to catch? No wearries, mon! I took the liberty to take a screenshot of the video. Some of the quick views shows the Stormwind tower, which suggests Deathwing is on top of the tower like in the original World of Warcraft: Cataclysm cinematic intro.
There is no release date for this product, but my personal opinion — it might be out early 2015, based on past products sneak peeks and their actual release date. Usually a year after announced.
The previous statue was based on Wrath of the Ling … the World of Warcraft Arthas Polystone Statue (still in stock). Going by that trend, speculation-mode on … will we see a Garrosh statue sneak peek in 2015, release date: 2016? Nom, nom, nom.
The weekly Jinx Critical Hit sale has placed the spotlight on the Diablo III Tyrael Hoodie, World of Warcraft Monk Hoodie (Women-only) and the StarCraft II Vintage Hoodie lowering them to 30% discount.
You should hurry up. This Critical Hit promo will be up until January 13, 2014 or while supplies last.
Production Director and Vice President for World of Warcraft, J. Allen Brack, opened a fundraiser for the Acoustic Neuroma Association. On top of his daily work, he has committed to make 30 Runs in 30 Days as a challenge in order to move some people’s hearts to donate for this worthy cause.
So far the Crowdrise has gathered 55% of the $2000 goal. I know many of you have loved J. Allen’s work on World of Warcraft over the past few years. Show your support, and cheer him up. He’s gonna need some warm hugs and uplifting words for this uphill challenge.
