New Mount Preview!

Late last night blizzard shared a new image on their social media, of a new flying mount. It looks like a flying version of the Raven Lord Anzu (and his mount) possibly indicating that this might be the mount you’ll get if you pre-order the digital deluxe edition of Warlords of Draenor. Check the mount down below or here on WoW’s facebook page.

Recap Warcraft News Jan 13th – 19th

As we’re still working on the website we haven’t been able to get out articles as new news comes out so here’s a recap of the last week’s Warcraft related news!

Greg Street(Ghostcrawler)’s new job!

We found out on monday what new opportunity ghostcrawler left blizzard for. He’s now a lead game designer at Riot Games, the folks who developed League of Legends.

Targeted SoO raid nerfs

Next up, starting the upcoming raid reset, some targeted nerfs will effect the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

Quote from: Blizzard


We will be reducing the health of the Kor’kron troops in 10-player Normal and Flexible difficulty, because smaller raid groups have fewer tools to deal with the various enemies, and are further impacted when a portion of the raid must break off to deal with towers. No changes to Heroic difficulty at this time.

Thok the Bloodthirsty

We will reduce Thok’s unavoidable Fearsome Roar and Shock Blast damage in 10-player Normal, Heroic, and Flexible mode – again, smaller raid groups have fewer raid cooldowns to handle the increasing damage as Acceleration ramps, and we’re seeing 10-player groups and smaller Flex groups having much more difficulty with this encounter than their 25-player counterparts.

Siegecrafter Blackfuse

This encounter’s Heroic mode is a huge step up in difficulty from the preceding 11 bosses. We’re looking to smooth out that spike somewhat, while still keeping the fight quite challenging. The following changes apply only to Heroic difficulty: We are reducing the unavoidable raidwide damage inflicted by Magnetic Crush and Shredders’ Overload, as well as the damage from Superheated (to make belt groups’ lives a bit less painful when an Overcharged Laser is active). We’re also reducing Disassembled Turret health. Finally, on 10-player Heroic only, we’re reducing the health of Crawler Mines, since 10-player raids have fewer available tools to keep them controlled.

Paragons of the Klaxxi

Moving on to Heroic Paragons, we’d like them to continue a steady increase in difficulty that culminates with Garrosh. They’re already pretty close to that, so we’re just making a couple of tweaks here, reducing the damage of Multi-Shot and Fiery Edge on Heroic difficulty. This should keep most of the coordination difficulty of the fight, but reduce some frustrating deaths due to burst damage interactions between different abilities.

Warlords of Draenor Scouting Report

Furthermore blizzard came out with a Warlords of Draenor Scouting report indicating a few things.

  • If you want to opt in for the beta, now is the time to do so
  • Digital versions of Warlords of Draenor will be available for pre-purchase soon(tm)

A new beast takes to the skies!

The Iron Skyreaver mount was put on the ingame blizzard store this week. Blizzard put together a nice little video showing off the new mount.
