Warlords of Draenor Alpha Coming Up
The alpha files just went up, it will take us a couple of hours to probably go through everything but you should probably stay tuned and check back every now and then. Tonight, we dine in Draenor!

    The alpha began quite awhile ago. This is about the alpha client being released without an NDA. It means we get datamined information instead of being limited to only what information Blizz trickles out through blog posts and interviews (and leaks that get taken down in days and are often faked).
    Also, the Alpha client being released usually means the beginning of the closed beta phases are very, very close to beginning.

    ...well then, I do declare: EEK! That explains why I see excitement about it both outside and in-game ^^. Thank you for that spot of info.

    blizzard flatout said at blizzcon that gul'dan and his followers drank the demon blood and are in their own words "still very much on the phone with kil'jaedan"



    see gul'dan there? dudes still green as the hulk while the rest of them arent.

    and yes please go on about how i shouldve expected fucking time travel when we have a legendary questline shoved in our faces that says "the legion are coming"

    yeah i was totally dumb for thinking the legion was coming when wrathion told us the legion was coming.

    and technically the legion is coming. since gul'dan is part of the legion, so, im still right

    I rarely put any weight behind these things, but I have to say that even I had a feeling ever since the Legendary Quest and WoD announcement that this is a buildup for The Legion.

    Hell yeah! The Clans Join is (maybe, probably, most likely?) the login music! *squees*

    Don't need to be looking the login screen for long to be annoyed by it... I remember the dragon scream at WotLK...
    These drums run through the entire piece of music, meaning that each time you logout to switch characters, each time you have a connexion problem, waiting for the game to connect, each time you wait on the loading screen, you might have these drums running all along... If it's becoming annoying now while only listening to the track once or twice, it will be much more annoying when we'll have it in the game every day...

    Just to point out..

    There is a heirloom book you can buy that teaches flying on Draenor for your alts.

    I am a bit disappointed, I was realy hoping they would make flying an ´old content´ thing.

    Don't use the book then? Its always your own choice to fly or not, no need to have people forced into not flying just for your amusement.

    Let hope this means that blizzard understands that removing the option to fly in new content for too long isnt a smart thing to do (its a lose-lose situation for everyone)

    I'd be so happy if this was the final login screen!

    Could we PLEASE get a version of this screen without the login elements? To my knowledge these elements are added programmatically, so the original actually has to be in the data files without them. Wanna have that as desktop image. <3
