"Going Back in Time"

REVIEW |

Author: Garrison King  

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor has finally launched and despite server issues, it appears that Blizzard is taking the game in the right direction. As soon as you reach the steps of the Dark Portal you'll immediately notice the shift in tone from Mists of Pandaria. Warlords bring back the evergreen threat of the orcs in a way that feels refreshing.

If you've been away from Azeroth for some time, you'll notice the new character models in the game. The new looks are great and definitely revitalized the love for my character. You'll also gain class perks when you level up from 90-100. These perks are passive abilities that enhance different class talents that you already have access to.

Warlords also gives us Garrisons. Your garrison is your base of operations. You will be able to customize it the further into the story you get. Blizzard does a good job of not making a garrison necessary, but it is strongly encouraged to do the bare minimum in each zone as they allow very helpful bonuses such as a freakin' mount you can ride IN COMBAT! If you want to go all out, you can create buildings that help your professions by giving you materials via "work orders." You'll also have followers that you can send on missions to earn garrison resources. Overall, it wasn't as involved as I thought it would be and some work orders and follower missions take a long time to complete. Despite this, garrisons offer some nice options that many players can find beneficial come end-game.

The last big feature added is Ashran. This is a Player Vs. Player zone that mainly works like a tug-o-war battle. You have the option to complete side missions, but be ready to take on some like-minded foes away from the main fight. My early impressions of Ashran aren't favorable. The lack of direction is very frustrating when you first set foot in the battle zone. Add in long queue times and it’s something to all-together avoid.  

While it's still early in the expansion, I can comfortably say that World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is a step in the right direction. The new looks, the darker theme and level 100 cap have given WoW the facelift it needs to continue to be a fun, immersive game.

GameDynamo's Score for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor (PC)
Graphics
The new models and gorgeous landscape have given WoW the facelift it sorely needed. Also, the cutscenes are a treat to watch.
Sound
The soundtrack won't capture you as well as it did in Mists. However, the voice acting has really improved and keeps the player inmersed in the experience.
Gameplay
Blizzard has done a good job of making the experience as involved as you want. You have the option to pvp, follow the lore, do bonus objectives to level up, or build up your garrison.
Play Value
Whether you're an experienced MMO'er or new to the genre, WoW caters to all. With the character boost, you can hop into the action immediately. You're going to have a great time.
 
Final Score  94Editors Choice
Warlords of Draenor makes Warcraft feel like Warcraft again. With the change in tone, new looks, and gorgeous new world, you will have plenty to experience once you step through the Dark Portal.
