That was an awesome video they just showed. :P

I'll be waiting on the highland, with its wonderful serenity.
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow, that's my way of life.
When the mountains on the highland, and the nature is surrounding me, when the wind blows, that's all I need.

Yeah, that was a really cool cinematic for Heroes of the Storm :)

I feel sorry for the HotS and Hearthstone announcers, though. What they're talking about is really cool but everyone is currently waiting for the WoW announcement and they're getting restless. The poor guys would have gotten much better attention later in the day ;)

Woo, yes. So either they didn't care about hiding it this close to the announcement or they were careless with editing ;)

Looked at the pics for it, glad to see it might focus on the Draenei, they really need some love. Tho a bit sad that there's no new race or classes (I guess updated character models will work? Hope they include the TBC races too).

They only showed the new models for orcs and dwarwes so far, but they said there will be new character models. So I guess that goes for the Burning Crusade ones too.

Yay new models :D I love the dwarf and draenei ones! (although draenei looked quite ok already)

And the trailer was pure AWESUM! I didn't think I would like "warlords of draenor" thing, but as for now I'm loving it.

And big, BIG YAY for more draenei!

Ah well, The Dark Below sounded much more interesting to me than replaying old content.

I am excited about the new character models, hope they are much more customizable than the current ones!

Metzens last minute: Garry runs away, with help, and gets to the past, and wants to change past and make Horde without demon corruption. And we follow him to prevent that, I think.

Kinda meh for me, but i'm ok as long as we get draenei luv and bronze lore :P

Yeah, the time travel trope is a pretty cheesy and repeated one. But I'm very, very excited to see an unbroken Draenor. :)

Draenei and Orcs: just be careful you don't become your own grandparent :P

http://youtu.be/OYueIdI_2L0 Here's the trailer in case peeps wanna watch it.

I dunno what to think yet...I'm surprised to see a male Draenei hunter lol, I rarely see those other than my own toon. Whole expansion based on time-travel? Eeeehhh....have to wait and see.

If they give us all new character models I'd be perfectly fine with no new class/race in exchange.

This sounds pretty interesting. I'll admit I was never incredibly keen on the Draenor lore as much, and while BC had some beautiful zones I just didn't like the space theme all that much, but I'm excited and I hope a new expansion will get me back into the game. I lost so much steam with MoP towards the end and I'm not even sure why. I just haven't been playing at all lately. I thought it would be one of my favourite expansions, and I certainly enjoyed it, but my interest dwindled so quickly after level cap, I didn't even feel like raiding this expansion. Could just be the culmination of all the years of playing the game finally growing a bit stale, I can't say.

But yay new stuff to look forward to! :)

They just said that all character models would be updated. Didn't think worgen and goblins would be updated too. Cool. :P
And that idea with the ability to boost one character to level 90 sounds pretty nice.
