Warcraft Movie Cast Announcement
Legendary announced that Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown will also be joining the Warcraft movie cast. Daniel Wu recently appeared in Europa Report and Clancy Brown regularly appears in and does voices for TV shows. It isn't his first time working on a Warcraft project though, as he was Thrall in the cancelled Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans game.

As always, you can expect some new music in the expansion. I couldn't answer as to how much yet, but if you look back over the years, you'll see that we've added many hours of music on a fairly consistent basis. Also, being able to see the Draenei and Karabor in a new light should be illuminating to the auditory system. We'll do what we can to provide any sneak listens or insights we can along the path to the release of the expansion. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Warlords of Draenor Timeline
I guess im bothered that actions in this past, wont affect present day. it's considered "separate".
Iron Horde orcs are pouring through the Dark Portal into your home. It will absolutely be affecting your present day... and you were just starting to make a sandwich. Jerks. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Legendary Cloak Effort
The point of this thread is to state.... this is by far the most complcated time consuming Legendary ever in this game.
Hah, well thanks for laying it out visually. I think we like how it worked out in essence, ultimately having something for even the LFR player to work toward over a long period of time is a great goal to have for people. Definitely a lot of lessons learned on how we can make steps feel less grindy, and maybe make the experience more cohesive. But having that kind of Legendary doesn't necessarily preclude us from also having a Legendary that's maybe class specific and more of a personal challenge like Fangs, or something like the Warlock green fire quest. We don't think it necessarily has to be one or the other. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

We allowed the Shadow conversion in a weak moment, but they had alternatives. Balance and Elemental did not. (Source)

Why the sweeping itemization changes for WoD? Lack of Agi/Str on secondary pieces halves the power.
So we double the amount of attack power on an item? That's an easy tweak, not a reason to dislike the system IMO. (Source)
AGI also increases crit. Without AGI on 1/3 of equipment this a major loss in effectiveness.
Or we could just boost crit chance. Again, these seem to be easily solved details and not a reason to reject the design. (Source)

Unsure you're best to ask this, but: Will all of Draenor be explorable (achievement-wise) at expansion launch? Or not til 6.1?
All at launch. Is this related to flying? (Source)

So since healer armour will be shared with dps, will the "Bonus" random stats affect healers too? Multistrike, cleave, etc.
Yes. (Source)
is the cleave stat going to affect healers and the way they heal?
The idea is it could heal nearby targets like the SoO trinket. (Source)

Simple question. Will secondary stats be random on gear in WoD too? Chest of Awesome always has haste + mastery off 1st boss?
For a raid boss drop, the secondary stats will likely be the same every time. May not be the case of other sources of loot. (Source)

Are Dodge and Parry getting rolled into Armor specifically as a stat?
No. Tanks will have a fixed amount of dodge and parry, perhaps with CDs or procs that buff it temporarily. (Source)

There are multiple female roles in this movie, if you had more than a shallow interest in stirring up controversy or making token attempts to assert your views you might know that. And you also ignore a statement on artificially embellishing a story purely based on a token representation of diversity, but don't let me stop you from wearing that persecution complex with pride.

    Warcraft has had different ethnicities in the human race for a while now.
    No, actually you compared a gender to a disability. And you call me ignorant. That's cute.

    They cast Daniel Wu and I can't help but think "Is Chen Stormstout going to be in this?"

    As for Clancy Brown, fuck yes. Terenas, probably, but I could also see him as Antonidas, Lothar, Khadgar, or even Medivh.

    You do know you're a braying jackass of a moron, right? It was clearly addressing your stupidity of "Why are there no women in this movie?!?!?!?!?!", disregarding completely that Paula Patton has already signed on, and knowing full well that this story could not be told WITHOUT females. His answer was "Why are there no <insert population base here>?" to show how asinine and stupid your argument was from the start. You can keep being willfully retarded to avoid the point and keep carrying that cross on your back, but no one will weep for you when you hang yourself from it with the nails of utter stupidity.

    Clancy Brown, hell yeah!

    Are the orcs CGI in this? Because he certainly has the voice and stature to play an orc.

    He remembers me of Drek'thar if you put on some make up.
