Story

Official wallpaper
Official artwork

Having lured Grommash Hellscream’s former lieutenants with promises of untold power, Gul’dan has delivered the Iron Horde to the Burning Legion. Now, he floods the jungles of Tanaan with energies from the fallen pit lord Mannoroth, creating an army of fel orcs brimming with demonic strength and insatiable bloodlust. Even the Iron Horde’s mighty war machines have been infused with fel energy, while the Shadow Council recruits fanatical arakkoa to help crush all who oppose the Legion.

Whether Horde or Alliance, as commander of your side’s garrison in Draenor you must oversee the construction of warships to assault Tanaan and disrupt the Iron Horde’s frenzied preparations—then stop Gul’dan before his fel masters can gain a foothold on Draenor. If you fail, there will be nothing left to prevent the Burning Legion’s obliteration of Azeroth.

New content

Zone Unlocked: The Invasion of Tanaan Jungle

  • Heroes of the Horde and the Alliance, return to Tanaan Jungle and stop Gul'dan's plan to drag the whole of Draenor into chaos while plotting to reopen the portal for a massive invasion of Azeroth. Embark on a new series of chapter-based quests putting everything you've learned on Draenor to the test.
  • One does not merely stroll into Tanaan Jungle. You'll progress through a series of quests in which you'll be asked to build a Shipyard, begin an assault on Tanaan by sea, and culminating in the creation of a new forward base of operations. From this new outpost, you'll go on the offense and launch assaults to undermine Gul'dan's plan to drag all of Draenor into chaos.
  • Tanaan Jungle has Open-world questing with rare creatures and hidden treasures scattered throughout the zone.
  • Learn more about the new zone in the Patch 6.2 Zone Preview: Tanaan Jungle.

Timewalking - The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King

  • Characters can queue up for a randomly selected old-school dungeon with a twist: your character's power and gear scales down to the dungeon's level on Heroic difficulty. However, your character retains all of your skills and talents. Emerge victorious, and you will walk away with old loot that is scaled back up to your character's level!
  • Completing three Timewalking dungeons as a part of a quest during the event awards a Seal for an extra bonus roll, which isn't counted toward the weekly cap of three seals.
