    WoW Up to 10 Million Subscribers, Garrison Campaign Quests Active, Nov 19 Hotfixes

    WoW Up to 10 Million Subscribers
    This afternoon Blizzard released the subscribers count as of November 13, 2014. This is up 2.6 million from the Q3 2014 call that listed WoW at 7.4 million subscribers.

    Warlords of Draenor has sold over 3.3 million copies so far, up from 1.5 million pre-ordered in August.

    Garrison Campaign Quests Active
    Garrison Campaign quests are now active and the one you get each week appears to be random.

    One option you may get is from Khadgar's Servant in your garrison, which sends you to Shadowmoon Valley for a short quest chain that rewards Sargerei Disguise (which is not a Toy).

    It's funny when you look at the start of WoW. Games launch now with triple those numbers and decline, but people still say WoW is a dying game.

    Sub updates? WoW is dead! Wait, what? Oops, force of habit.
