Blizzard should release the fifth World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor, sometime this year. With it comes the ability to reach level 100, build your own garrison and perhaps most importantly, cover a lot of new territory. You’ll find 7 new zones to wander through, each one featuring a distinct environment. That said, here’s what you have to look forward to.
If you’re the type of person who runs cold and then hot, be sure to set up camp in this inhospitable location. Frostfire Ridge is both snowy and extra toasty, thanks to plenty of molten lava. Here you’ll find the Frostwolf orc clan, as well as their home, Bladespire Fortress.
Believe it or not, Gorgrond used to feature a beautiful oasis until the Blackrock clan transformed it into an industrial nightmare to churn out weapons and equipment. Now all you’ll find is a rocky wasteland, complete with steam erupting from vents in the ground.
This appears to be one of the more mysterious areas in Draenor, a windswept location known for a strange mist across the plains and the mystical Throne of the Elements. Keep an eye open for crystals of Oshu’gun.
Take a moment to admire the stars while wandering through the forest, and be sure to pay a visit to the majestic tomb and sanctuary known as Karabor, but be careful. There are unsavory types populating the massive network of caves beneath the surface.
The Iron Horde set up residence within the visually stimulating cathedral city of Shattrath. From there, they seek to control sea trade along the rivers that flow from the Sea of Zangar.
Watch yourself while in this treacherous jungle. Yes, enemies will seek to make life difficult, but even the plants will attempt to kill you. Rumor has it the jungle hides an apocalyptic device that can manipulate space and time.
Spires of Arak
Described as an autumnal, swampy forest, the glorious Spires of Arak are a sight to behold. Gaze upon these insanely tall towers. Just don’t expect the Arakkoa to give you a warm welcome.
