Under Siege

Thrall: Those Iron Horde cannons are laying waste to our troops. I’m not sure how much more of this we can handle. Our forces are already spread too thin.

There has to be a way to stop those war machines.

Under Siege

Iron Horde Invasion

onscreen: Speak with Thrall at the Shattered Landing in Blasted Lands.

Description

All able bodied members of the Horde are hereby ordered to report to Thrall in Blasted Lands.

Use the portal at the Cleft of Shadow in Orgrimmar to head directly to the front line.

This new threat is known only as the Iron Horde. They have taken over the Dark Portal and must be stopped.

Destiny calls!

[SPOILERS and SPECULATION] Who is Cho’gall’s Master, and what does it bode for Draenor?

He comes…

A burning question has resonated in the minds of many, especially myself, since Warlords of Draenor’s unveiling: how will the expansion’s story progress and conclude?

The prospect of how Warlords of Draenor storyline comes to a close is still a mystery. By all accounts, all that we know for sure pertaining to WoD’s conclusion and final raid tier is the following: Grommash Hellscream will be involved with the final encounter, and it will be heavily Legion themed. Aside from this tidbit shared by Tom Chilton, what happens upon Draenor post-6.0 is a complete mystery. The single plausible route to formulating what will play out next in WoD is speculation, and the recent slaying of Mythic Imperator Mar’gok surprised many with a new development in the lore.

Before jumping into any speculation, let’s review every significant lore event that’s occurred so far in WoD:

World of Warcraft Surpasses 10 Million Subscribers as Warlords of Draenor Launch Begins

New expansion achieves day-one sell-through of more than 3.3 million copies

WORLD OF WARCRAFT® SURPASSES 10 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS AS WARLORDS OF DRAENOR™ LAUNCH BEGINS

IRVINE, Calif.—November 19, 2014—On November 13, millions of Azeroth’s champions enlisted for the war against the Iron Horde with the launch of World of Warcraft®: Warlords of Draenor, the fifth expansion to the world’s #1 subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game.* Blizzard Entertainment today announced that as of the first 24 hours of the expansion’s availability, more than 3.3 million copies had sold-through and the game’s global subscriber base had passed 10 million, with growth across all major regions.

Beasts of the Savage Lands – Nagrand

If you are now exploring Draenor you might going to see soon Nagrand (well, if you are not lvl 100 already). Some of the creatures of this region you have already set on are familar, even if they look more savage.
Don’t also forget that this is the place of the Warsongs, if you hear some rhythmic songs, run.

Beasts of the Savage Lands – Nagrand

The fertile fields and beautiful rolling plains of Nagrand play host to some of the most diverse species on Draenor… as well as its most menacing threats. Here sits the ogre capital of Highmaul, the valley home of the marauding Warsong orc clan, and the crash site that marks the arrival of the draenei to this world. Tread carefully!

The Pale

The Pale

When young orc shaman from around the world come of age, they make a pilgrimage to the Throne of Elements to seek the blessings of the elemental spirits. The entire journey is filled with risk, but the ceremony itself is the most dangerous time of an orc’s life. It’s not clear what happens to those who are not strong enough and succumb to terrible visions and unearthly whispers during what should be the triumph of their young life. Those orcs who fall to the otherworldly voices flee their clan and become the Pale, withered remains of their former selves, hiding from the light and babbling incoherently in dark caves. Are they truly insane, or have they actually made contact with a malevolent force? The answers may lie in the twisting caverns beneath Nagrand, where some of the largest colonies of Pale linger and speak cryptic warnings.
