Blizzard has clarified what the "Veteran Account" information from
6.1 PTR datamining
refers to. "Veteran Accounts" revert lapsed accounts into Starter Edition mode, letting them log into WoW with restrictions.
We also have information on January 15th Hotfixes, featuring Protection Paladin nerfs, as well as Garrison Campaign clarifications. Catch up on the campaign questlines and rewards
with our guide
Also check out post from earlier today on
6.1 Garrison developments
, including follower/mission UI improvements on the PTR, and some additional Garrison improvements we added to Wowhead like mission success chance!
We’ve always had this kind of weird limitation where if you’ve never played WoW we let you play as much as you want, albeit in a very restricted Starter Edition account. However, if you have ever had a subscription--but don’t currently have one--we don’t even let you log in. In 6.1 we’ll effectively revert lapsed accounts into a Starter Edition “mode”, with all of the same restrictions. The one difference being that your sub-level 20 characters will be able to join a guild if any of your other characters are still in that guild.
The label for this mode internally is “Veteran”, and those are the strings that were datamined, but it’s unlikely to be a term we use to any great degree externally. It will simply be the default state for accounts that don’t currently have an active subscription.

6.1 PTR: Garrison Updates - Invasions, Mission UI Improvements, Followers, Music
2015/01/15 at 12:13 PM
In the last week, we've datamined a ton of changes for 6.1 including improvements for your Garrison. In case some of them got lost in the flurry of information, we're highlighting the Garrison changes in great detail--music rewards, invasion loot, mission changes including bonus experience improvements, and more.
Edit: Updated 6:30 EST with PTR screenshots of UI improvements--Garrisons are now testable on the PTR. Updated again 11 am with
We've also been improving our Garrison database, and have a few more updates to share:
We've added a special "May Counter" follower filter for each mission threat. Each follower spec has a predetermined list of five abilities and this filter helps you visualize what specs are potentially good at countering what threats (example:
filter for followers who have the potential to counter both Danger Zones and Powerful Spell
). Filter for several threats at once to see what follower specs are great for knocking out multiple threats for a tricky mission. All you have to do is go to
and select the Abilities > May Counter filter from the menu.
Mission pages now allow you to add followers, abilities, and traits to calculate their in-game success chance. While optimized for live servers, the PTR site is updated for legendary followers, ilvl 670 follower cap, and
. We have more exciting developments planned with the mission calculator and follower tracking.
There is a special subset of follower abilities like
which are only obtainable if it appears when you filter for Timed Battle at the Inn. We've added them to relevant follower pages such as
Ilaniel Pine / Zen'tika
and made a special note that these are only obtainable via the Inn.
