Warlords of Draenor Early Gearing Guide
2014/11/05 at 12:02 PM
This guide provides an overview of how to gear up in Warlords of Draenor! While some ways take longer or require more effort than others, we’ve described all the ways you could reasonably get gear in the first month or so.
We’ve also covered how you can modify/enhance your stats (gems, enchants, consumables) and a table sorting gear by slot and item level.
Warlords Questing (505-610)
As you quest and level up in Warlords of Draenor, you will inevitably get rid of your Siege of Orgrimmar gear. Here are some factors to keep in mind besides the item level:
Trinkets from Siege of Orgrimmar have reduced effectiveness at level 91 and higher, such as
Assurance of Consequence
All specs have an “attunement” spell that boosts a specific secondary stat by 5%. Several specs have stat boosts for new stats that are not plentiful on Siege of Orgrimmar gear, such as Holy Priests with
. Consider picking up quest items with this stat.
While quest gear does not come with sockets or set bonuses, it has a small chance to be 10 or 20 item levels higher than the quest log displays.

Guide to Wild Battle Pets of Draenor
2014/10/03 at 1:27 PM
Today we're welcoming an additional writer to Wowhead!
, the author of our
Challenge Mode transmog
guides, will be writing weekly articles for us and assisting with beta/ptr coverage. We hope you enjoy her first article on wild battle pets in Warlords of Draenor!
The Warlords of Draenor expansion releases with 27 new wild pets for pet battlers to hunt and capture. These pets are in most of the new zones and are, in general, level 25 pets with the pets in the starting zones a slightly lower 24.
Unlike some hard to find wild pets released with MOP (like the
), these pets are plentiful and easy to find and seem to have an increased chance at being blue quality. In some zones, the chance at these new pets being secondary pets in the battle is quite high -
battles seemed to be entirely composed of the new pets whereas
secondary pets were mostly old world pets like chipmunks.
