    Correct. Other sites have already mention this video was leaked. The question is who leaked it ...

    I get that it's a cinematic and all, but how many of those facial expressions do you think we'll be able to make?

    Based on a) what's being promised and b) what we've seen, I'm thinking quite a lot.

    I'm excited.

    I love that his voice is deeper and has a mustache after reaching level 90. I don't think they were trying to say that he was leveling in Tanaris at 61, but that the leveling experience is comparable to wondering through a desert for days on end and the soul crushing despair that brings with it. I am not saying they are right but they are right.

    Not that weird, they linked it on twitter too to build hype for geeks.
    But obviously they won't actually put it on Battlenet until preorders are actually live today/tuesday/wednesday.

    Here is how I process that: For you to enjoy you game, you need to purchase all the expansions *and* purchase a level 90, or else you can't practically have fun with your friends.
    Sure, you could level together but that's a /huge/ pain because you can /only/ run if they are on *and* they aren't on their high level / raiding -- otherwise you out level them and you can't run together anymore. But even *if* you did all this, you aren't going to break 500 iLvl, so you still aren't going to do SoO with your friends unless they carry you -- even if you knew how to play.

    He probably heard that - in WoD - the portal to Outland will be at the Caverns of Time (which is in Tanaris). His facial expressions at the start of the video, tells that he already went to the caverns, but could not find the portal, and he knows, that he should walk back to Theramore, to catch the next ship. But he also heard, that Theramore was destroyed (but he doesn't know, it's still there until he finishes its scenario). So he just walked around in the desert until he saw a mirage: a mailbox - clearly, Tanaris has only 1 mailbox, at Gadgetzan - with full of mails. One of them says, he can boost to level 90 now™. But sadly, that's just part of his imagination - at least - for now™.

    This isn't a WoD trailer, this is a Paid Character Boost ad.

    You probably missed that you'll get a lvl 90 character when purchasing/pre-ordering WoD.

    Pre-order Warlords of Draenor.

    Trailers are ads and it's an ad for the WoD pre-order.

    I see people who fit this description every day, and they leveled themselves, and nobody kicks them.

    Fantasy.

    I think buried in the 20 pages of people saying this is the fact that this "trailer" has been leaked early.

    I hope my willingness to pay money for goods and services doesn't permanently damage your feelings.

    Bit later in thread there's a link to Blizzard employee linking the trailer in twitter so it's kinda official.
    Just some time to build hype and get views on youtube until launch on tuesday/wednesday mainteance I guess.

    But I have an ever stronger feeling that the Beta might not be what we are used to, this time around.
    For my part, I would not be surprised if the Beta phase is going to be something very short, if we get any at all..
    Over the years Blizzard has made so many improvements with the game engines and software. They can now - and do it already - integrate content and changes on live realms with barely any down time at all. Some even without having to just restart the servers.
    So I am prepared for a very short Beta phase. Maybe even just a closed beta for a select group to test some raid and bg stuff.
    Thats what they did with diablo3 ROS recently. Granted, the amount of content to test is drastically different, but they did a lot of balance and class changes, and it was a very limited beta, that was over fairly quickly and didnt come until pretty close to the release.
