Enter the Warlord

warlock5So I got invited into Alpha for Warlords of Draenor, and big thanks to my friend who shall remain nameless who hooked me up.

I didn’t get to play too much, but I delved into a little…let me give you some initial thoughts.

My battle.net app didn’t have a spot to download new client, so the forums directed me to another place ,and that worked. If you’re having problems the forums is a good place to check.

The login screen is a throwback of an earlier screen I think the original which had the dark portal before you. The music on login and character select is awesome. It sounds like a war song with it’s drums beating.

I tried the in game character copy stuff, but it didn’t work, I found out there’s a way to do a beta copy character through the account page. and that worked. I copied my Warlock, but when I tried to enter it said that race/class could not be played at the moment. Ok well I made a level 90 Orc Warlock. He started with Green level 500 gear, and plenty of bag space, and 10k gold. Not too shabby. I went Destruction cause I figured it was easiest way to start. My toon started on Draenor, and it had me plant banners, and click on flags which is an interesting new concept. The flags/banners we’re like ghost, and you click on them and it plants them and it shows up. At least no bag space taken up.  After doing a couple of quests it tosses you right into your Garrison, and you start working on them. I left it at that point. One of the uber cool things is I had ALL the mounts it seems like, so I road around on the Magic Rooster

Only problems so far, was it performed a little shotty but I was downloading the client at the same time, and/or I didn’t look at the video options they may be needed to dumb down.  So I won’t concern myself with that. I also had a problem with my level 30 talent, it would not let me pick one.

So in the days, weeks, months to come I’m sure I’ll have more news for you.
