Welcome back to another Warlords of Draenor Alpha Round-up! First off, sorry Sunday sort of missed the cut–to make up for it, we’ll be looking at a little more content today from around the web.

Second off, we’re excited to share Crow’s latest alpha theorycraft article, this time focused on garrison follower abilities:

Third off, it looks like another round of Warlords alpha invites went out today–make sure to check your Battle.net account and registered email to see if you made it!

And last, if you happen to have gotten into the Warlords alpha, we would be excited to share your thoughts, pictures, and videos! Feel free to comment them below.

  • To be fair, I haven’t gone very far (due to stability issues I mentioned yesterday, which are of course expected in an alpha). Maybe it… @Lhivera
  • …gets more accessible/relatable further along. But so far my impression is that this is a story by and for people who are far more familiar… @Lhivera
  • …with old characters from twenty year old lore than I am. @Lhivera
  • I realize, of course, that there were a lot of old lore characters in Wrath. But I never felt like unfamiliarity with them limited access… @Lhivera
  • …to the story. Those characters were an extra cool thing for people who knew them, not an obstruction for those who didn’t. @Lhivera
  • Here I’m feeling like I won’t really get this story w/o the background, & I have no desire to read books as supporting material for a game. @Lhivera
