World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

Updated: November 13, 2014

Warlords of Draenor is now live!

It is the era of an Old Horde, forged with steel rather than fel blood. A union of great orc clans, the Iron Horde, tramples the planet Draenor beneath terrifying war machines. Azeroth falls next. Worlds uncounted will follow. You must mount a desperate charge on Draenor – savage home of orcs and adopted bastion of stoic draenei – at this pivotal moment. Your allies are legends from across time; your fortress a foothold in an alien land. Lead the armies of one world against another…before the future itself is unmade.

New World of Draenor

  • Draenor is now accessible! Characters can take the fight to the Iron Horde by stepping through the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands.
  • Draenor is a vicious land of magma and metal, stone and steam. Vicious saberon, winged arakkoa, spike-skinned gronn, and more unusual creatures rule the edges of the world, feasting on anything they kill.
  • Learn more about Draenor with zone previews:

Take Command of Your Garrison

  • Construct a mighty garrison: an enduring home base within the world. Tame a deadly realm, and build an unbreakable monument to victory.
  • Customize it with specialized structures like farms, stables, armories, workshops and more.
  • Recruit stalwart followers to man your base, and send them to loot dungeons, fulfill missions, and craft items, even if you’re offline.
  • Learn more about Garrisons in the Game Guide.

New Dungeons

Bloodmaul Slag Mines

Iron Docks

  • 4 bosses

Auchindoun

  • Level 94-97
  • 4 bosses

Skyreach

  • Atop the crowning pinnacle of the Spires of Arak, Skyreach stands as the seat of power of the Adherents of Rukhmar. The arakkoa have gathered and harnessed the Apexis technology of their forebears, and now they are ready to unleash the focused power of the sun upon their enemies.

  • Level 100
  • 3 bosses

Shadowmoon Burial Grounds

  • The traditional burial grounds of the Shadowmoon clan. The fallen chieftain Ner’zhul, in the depths of his depravity, has sacrificed the very soul of his clan in a desperate quest for power.

  • Level 100
  • 4 bosses

The Everbloom

  • The Kirin Tor created outposts across Draenor with magical links back to Azeroth to serve as a supply line for reinforcements. Unfortunately, what seemed like a prime strategic location near the Blackrock Foundry was known to the botani as The Everbloom, a sacred place within the Gorgrond woodlands. The outpost was quickly overgrown, but it still contains a link to the outskirts of Stormwind…
  • Level 100
  • 5 bosses

Revamped: Upper Blackrock Spire

  • The upper reaches of Blackrock Spire is now home to the Ironmarch vanguard.
