World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Alpha Build 18471 Deployed

Update: New Spires of Arak and Nagrand Maps added. Currently Horde is available. Alliance causes a crash. In addition, new quest scenario where the Iron Horde attacks your Garrison.

Correction: @TheRedShirtGuy tells me Alliance is playable. If your character was in Shadowmoon last time, it might crash. Alliance now starts at Tanaan Jungles. Create a new character if you get crashes.

Update: When launching Warlords of Draenor for the first time, the player will get a new window highlighting some of the new expansion’s features.
