MMO-Champion - Warlords of Draenor Alpha Invites Going Out
Update (Jun 4 Hotfix): Queuing for a non-random Normal Scenario now awards 30 Justice Points on completion (down from 70 Justice Points).

Warlords of Draenor Alpha Invites Going Out
It looks like the alpha is finally here!


  • As shown above, new character models can be disabled.
  • Currently only Frostfire Ridge is open for testing.
  • The Grinning Reaver and Warforged Nightmare have been added to in the game shop. Keep in mind that items can be added to the shop just for testing purposes.

UI Improvements

  • The Dungeon Journal now includes short overviews of the fight for each role, which should help players that don't know the fights.
  • The Key Binding UI has also been improved to a tabbed list rather than a very long list you have to scroll through.
  • You are now able to manage addons in game without having to log out. The Simple Addon Control or Addon Control Panel addons will do the same thing now.
  • The mount UI now supports marking mounts as favorites and summoning a random favorite mount. It also makes mounts red when they are unusable in the current area and shows a source.
  • The world map now becomes translucent while moving.
  • The Toybox UI has been added and a basic list of items is in place.
  • Bags now have an autosort and basic options to go along with it.











Object and NPC Outlines
Quest objects and NPCs now have outlines when selected or needed for a quest, making them easier to see. This replaces the old sparkles that were used for quest objects previously. Outlines can be disabled or only set on quest related entities.

    But arent we all heroes? Heroes of warcraft, slaying epic bosses each week.
    Ya know how when the president goes to visit the troops and you see him smile and wave as he makes his way to a giant tent on the other side of the crowd to go have lunch with the general and other officers. It's like that. We're the peons in the crowd trying to be excited, but knowing after he goes inside we're going back to what we were doing before.

    I have no problem with addons (or a close recreation of such) getting integrated into the stock UI. I'm just wondering why the post is specifically pointing at two addons instead of stating that such functionality has been integrated (if such a thing has even been done). The post fails to even mention that, which is what confused me.

    The horde garrison looks... less than impressive. I know they're tier 1 buildings, but from what has been shown off for the alliance garrisons, this seems less than I had hoped for.
