Get a First Look at Warlords of Draenor’s Starting Area
Blizzard has revealed a new zone for their upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor.
The new zone, Tanaan Jungle, will be your first taste of the new Draenor. Here, according to Blizzard, it’s not just Orcs that are dangerous.
In primordial Tanaan, even the plants have teeth. Darkling fronds stab out at unlucky wanderers, or conceal canyons that plunge miles deep beneath the canopy – and these are far from the jungle’s worst dangers. Each day, warlords fell even wider stretches of Tanaan’s wilderness, striving to finally rend the gates of space and time for conquest unending.
Players will begin their journey in Tanaan Jungle as the Iron Horde invades Azeroth. Of course, such an event merits the need for you to lead the greatest heroes of Warcraft lore. Here, you’re not just fighting the Iron Horde, but the clans of legend lead by their greatest chieftains. Grommash Hellscream of Warsong clan, Kilrogg Deadeye of Bleeding Hollow clan and Kargath Bladefist of the Shattered Hand clan are here and not exactly happy to see you on their world.
With not only the Orc tribes, the Iron Horde and even the plantlife against you, performing your mission of shutting down the Dark Portal will present quite a challenge. Luckily, you’ll have the help of Azeroth’s greatest heroes Thrall, Khadgar and Vindicator Maraad helping you.
For those players who purchased an insta-level 90 booster, Tanaan will introduce you to your new class abilities and mechanics that you may not fully understand how to use properly yet. While I’m sure this zone will be phased, Blizzard promises that you’ll still be able to play with your friends just like normal.
From the description Blizzard gives of this new zone and what to expect in the quests and missions you must accomplish, those who relish in WoW’s lore will certainly have a lot of fun playing side-by-side with their favorite heroes against the corrupted Orc army of old.
