Lords of War – Part Two: Grommash

Lords of War Part Two is now out, go watch it, it is great, you will enjoy it.
Lords of War - Part Two: Grommash

Before you can harbor any hope of defeating the Iron Horde, you must first understand what—and whom—you’re up against. Our five-part series Lords of War introduces you to some of the major players in the campaign on Draenor—beginning with the sadistic Kargath Bladefist, leader of the Shattered Hand, and continuing today with the mighty Grommash Hellscream, chieftain of the Warsong clan.

Grommash Hellscream’s legend was not born from mere brutality or conquest. His indomitable will helped him survive the impossible . . . but only after his recklessness nearly cost him everything.

Once you’ve watch his story, visit our newly posted Grommash Hellscream character page to read more about his legacy and his role in the events to come.Visit www.worldofwarcraft.com in the weeks to come for more episodes of Lords of War, and arm yourself with the knowledge you need to survive the battle ahead.

The Horde also remembers those who have fallen, with special emphasis on the memory of Garrosh Hellscream’s father, Grom.

The Alliance Chopper Is Riding into Azeroth!

Blizzard has now chosen to do what the people wants, they are going to add the Alliance bike to Warlords of Draenor!

The difference between the Horde bike and the Alliance bike, is that the Horde bike will be free between today until 30’th of september. The alliance bike will not be cheap, it will be expensive.

Due to popular demand (and a few shady back-alley deals in Stormwind’s Old Town), the Alliance bike built for Azeroth Choppers will be rumbling its way to a vendor in Azeroth sometime after the launch of Warlords of Draenor. This mount will cost a pretty hefty sum of gold, however, so you might want to start saving up now if you want to ride around in style on this masterful machine. As a reminder, once the winning Horde Chopperis added to the game, it will be available for free to players who log in between now and September 30, 2014.

Remember, only characters of the associated faction will be able to ride each bike, so buyer beware!
