Merged AH Between Factions in 6.0, SDCC Merch, Fury Feedback, Proving Grounds Scales with Item Level
2014/07/01 at 7:47 AM
The Auction House will be merged between factions in 6.0. On the screenshots below, you can see that the items listed on the Alliance and Horde AH are now the same. The Neutral AH has been merged in as well and now sells the same items:
Hopefully it is. It would make life a lot more bearable as minority faction on an unbalanced server.
Yes, in 6.0 auction houses are unified between factions on a given server. The benefit you cite is a major reason behind the change.
WoD Proving Grounds Mobs Scale With Ilvl
The Proving Grounds in Warlords of Draenor appear to scale with ilvl when you zone in on a level 100. The screenshot to the left shows the health of the first mob with full premade gear (ilvl 660), and the second screenshot shows the health of the mob after we had taken off most of our gear.
This new type of scaling was first mentioned by
back in February:
We're investigating the potential of scaling PGs up to your ilvl. Not a guarantee, just an investigation. Has Pros/Cons.

Today we have tons of screenshots covering all the outdoor leveling zones on Draenor:
Spires of Arak
We've linked to our past in-depth coverage of playable zones and Blizzard's Artcraft and zone preview blogs when applicable. Do keep in mind that several of the higher-level zones had images taken with Far Sight, so they may still be incomplete and subject to change in future beta builds.

Guild Leveling Effectively Removed in Warlords of Draenor
2014/06/29 at 6:26 PM
Blizzard will be changing how guild perks and leveling work in Warlords of Draenor.
All guilds will essentially be level 25, and some perks will be streamlined, such as flight path taxis moving faster instead of requiring
Ride Like the Wind
. Due to some unintended poor behavior among players, the Cash Flow perk will be removed in Warlords of Draenor as well. Continue reading for the full post!

Guide to PvP Changes in Warlords of Draenor
2014/06/29 at 1:14 PM
Warlords of Draenor is introducing a huge amount of PvP changes to the game.
Along with various quality of life changes, we also have:
Gear and Gear Acquisition changes
New Weapon and Armor Models
A new PvP island called Ashran
Changes to Flagging
And much more, all laid out here!
Gear and Gear Acquisition Change Blog
There are several changes to gear coming with Warlords of Draenor, as well as changes to how you get gear. Blizzard posted a gearing blog, which you can read by expanding the blue box below, and the key points from within it are as follows:
Skirmishes give rewards
Battleground rewards now come mostly from Strongboxes, you can find the initial data entries for them on
Wowhead's Warlords of Draenor Database
Even if you don't win, you can still get rewards from Strongboxes. Rewards are issued at (for example) 500 points, 1000 points and 1500 points
Strongboxes can contain Honor Points, Conquest Points or Gear
There's now 3 tiers of PvP gear
Starter gear, earned very fast from Strongboxes in BGs
Veteran's gear, from Strongboxes and Honor Points
Gladiator's gear, from Conquest Points
Rated Battlegrounds and Arenas will have the same base Conquest cap
RBG wins will allow you to use a coin for a chance at Conquest gear
Ashran Images, Including Horde and Alliance Bases
2014/06/28 at 1:15 PM
We learned yesterday that the Horde and Alliance bases in Warlords of Draenor would be in Ashran, rather than in Karabor and Bloodspire as was previously anticipated. Wowhead made our way to Ashran to take some screenshots of the PvP island, and the Horde and Alliance bases. Ashran is situated off the coast of Tanaan Jungle, accessible by boat. You can observe the peninsula layout of the current Horde and Alliance bases.
It is very obvious from several of the pictures that these zones are unfinished
, but nonetheless an interesting preview.
You can also see Community Manager Lore's post below, explaining the details and thinking behind the Ashran bases, and several tweets aimed at reassuring players.
