Details On All Twenty Garrison Buildings In The Warlords Beta




The new Level 100 build of the Warlords of Draenor Beta is all about Garrisons with Blizzard giving you all sorts of tricks and shortcuts that allow beta testers to build all sorts of Garrison goodness.

I was very interested in all the different Garrison buildings along with all the different levels of those buildings and what benefits they offer. Read on past the jump for details on all twenty building you can build in the current beta.

New Garrison & Profession Information Via BlizzPro

Image Source: BlizzPro


In the post "Build 18566: Garrison and Profession Shifts" BlizzPro's Crow (@unlimitedBLACK) gives us some further observations and insights on how garrisons and professions are coming together (and working together) in the Warlords of Draenor beta.

Read on past the jump for a few excerpts and my thoughts on the changes.

New Warcraft Movie Revealed…To Be Hideous?





My initial thoughts are I don't like this new Warcraft movie logo but I'm not sure how much of that is based on the actual merits of the logo versus how much of that feeling is based on a a sort-of "you're messing with our stuff" tradition bias.

In addition, it seems from looking closely at the image that this is a still image from a motion picture and we seem to be seeing the logo in mid-special effect as the blue logo is being burnt with read fire and leaving behind the upper grey logo.

Regardless of if it's caught in mid-effect or not the basic structure of the logo itself, blue or grey, will likely be an issue for most World of Warcraft traditionalists as it seems to disregard anything from the original WoW logo design instead going for more of a "Starcraft" feel.

Either way, I'm sure it will grow on me.

Thoughts?

Profession Training Scrolls In Warlords of Draenor Beta



While killing Shadowmoon Voidmancers in (the surprisingly lush) Shadowmoon Valley in the Warlords of Draenor Beta I received three profession learning scrolls within a few drops of each other.

These particular scrolls (A Guide to Skinning in Draenor, A Compendium of the Herbs of Draenor, and A Treatise on Mining in Draenor) taught players how to skin, mine and gather herbs in Draenor.

Funny enough I was able to mine without reading this scroll but I didn't gain any skill over 600.





Reading the scroll I received a profession skill called [Mining] that allowed me to "mine ores in the old lands of Draenor" and gives a "potential mining skill of 700".

It would then seem these scrolls may replace learning a new mining skill from a trainer. I didn't however seem to learn new smelting techniques so that might still be coming. I checked with my Mining trainer and he didn't have anything new for me.

While this might seem like a small thing but I was just happy to find something new in the Beta related to professions.

How To Start & Turn In Garrison Missions in Warlords of Draenor



YouTube: How To Start a Garrison Mission in Warlords of Draenor

While we know Warlords of Draenor is still in beta we thought the Garrison mission UI was not really that intuitive. We made a few short videos showing how to start as well as turn in Garrison missions.

We also wanted to show off the cool little "mini-animation" that plays when you turn in that shows your follower doing the heroic deed you asked them to do. It's a nice little touch that makes the followers feel a bit more real.

Warlords of Draenor Garrisons - In Pictures



We've been going through the initial Garrison quests in the Warlords of Draenor Beta and taking pictures. Lots of pictures.

Today we thought we'd give a bit of a sneak peek into the starting Garrison experience in picture form. While we won't write about Garrisons today we can say that we are liking the experience so far.

I'd bet Garrisons are Blizzard's bid to keep people coming back in Warlords of Dreanor and from what I've seen so far the Garrison system is fairly complex and could be very entertaining. Time will tell.

So head past the jump and enjoy Warlords of Draenor's Garrisons in pictures.

We were able to spend more time in the Warlords of Dreanor Beta! In these videos we use our copied main character to explore the beta and even get into some gold-making theory. Part 2 is embedded past the jump.

Warlords of Draenor: New Bits and Pieces



I spent some more time in the Warlords of Draenor Beta this weekend (video to come soon) and tried to pay special attention to how the UI has changed as well as any other changes that might interest us as gold-makers.

While many of these features have been known since Blizzcon, it was great to see them in person.

Read on past the jump for some images and thoughts on UI changes, (possible) green item changes as well as crafting goodies Blizzard is giving us.

Warlords of Draenor Beta Footage: Night One!



Part 1: Warlords of Draenor Beta! - Night One Pt.1/3 by Jim Younkin

We were finally able to get our gaming PC set up and the first thing we did was download the Warlords of Draenor Beta (we call it "Alpha" in the video but that's because we were out of the loop when we recorded, it's actually Beta now).

While we had a few technical difficulties (feel free to skip ahead in any of the videos) I think the videos give a good sense of what the Beta is like at the moment.

Part 2 and 3 are embedded beyond the jump. Enjoy.
