New Warlords of Draenor Trailer, Recent Blue Tweets
2014/03/09 at 9:01 AM
Blizzard quietly released a new trailer recently, marked as unlisted, that's gotten quite a bit of attention today. It's focused on pre-purchasing Warlords of Draenor and getting a level 90 character boost to use in-game. There's even a gnome in the trailer, a rare sight!
Pre-purchasing character boosts are not yet live, but we
previewed them on the PTR
We also just released a

Dev Watercooler: Building Healthy Gameplay and Healing Changes
2014/03/07 at 9:22 AM
Following last week's blog on
Design Philosophy in Warlords of Draenor
, Blizzard just posted a followup blog covering player health. We're also adding in tweets below the blog from the
Blue Tweet Tracker
which add information to the blog.
A goal of Warlords is to tone down the raw thoroughput of heals. Players will not always be at 100% health, creatures will be stronger, and better gear will not cause scaling to spiral out of control.
The number of instant-cast heals is being reduced, a list of spells being changed is given in the blog.
Damage-absorption abilities are being toned down, as they can take the place of direct healing if they are too strong.
The healing from auto-targeted or passive heals will be greatly reduced and slightly less smart to make the healing experience more interactive.
Low-throughput, low-mana-cost heals like Nourish and Holy light are being removed, since they don't really add depth to gameplay.
Multi-target heals will be less mana-efficient to strike a better balance between single and multi t

New Site Feature: Blue Tweet Tracker
2014/03/04 at 2:23 PM
World of Warcraft
team has really embraced Twitter this past expansion--it's led to a lot of great interactions between the players and those working on the game.
However, it's easy to lose track of conversations quickly or sort out the important tweets from the conversational ones, so we've built a
Blue Tweet Tracker
to make things easier!
By default, you'll see tweets from developers and community members
designated by Blizzard as official accounts
. Using the menu at the right, you can customize it further:
You can choose to only see significant tweets, which are marked as important by Wowhead staff. Important announcements from
or WoD information like the new racials would be considered significant.
To avoid clutter, we've hidden conversations that are one-on-one replies since they may be more personal or incidental. If you want to see all of a user's tweets though, there's an option to do so. Sometimes Blizzard devs include useful information in conversations, so it's good to enable both "Show @ replies" and "Show significant tweets."[/l
MoP Digital Deluxe Edition Retiring Soon, Official List of Warlords Racials
2014/03/03 at 12:10 PM
Blizzard just posted an official list of new racial abilities coming in Warlords of Draenor. Several of these were
described on Twitter by developers
last week, but it's good to see them expanded in a blog post where there's not a 140 character limit!
Racials were changed for several reasons--some were just overpowered, while others would be made obsolete by the removal of Hit and Expertise in Warlords.
The Mists of Pandaria digital deluxe edition is also retiring soon--no sooner than March 10th. With the
Digital Deluxe Edition
, you can get StarCraft portraits, a special Diablo sigil and banner, and most importantly,

We’re planning some changes to racial traits for Warlords of Draenor. We recently posted a Dev Watercooler (<a href="
