With the 6.0 patch comes the change of a guaranteed weapon drop for your spec and first kill of Garrosh. We will be making the Prime raid Tuesday night run a raid for farming Garrosh weapons.

Download the latest PTR (requires another WoW-like sized installed) and play with most of the new features in Warlords. New models, toy box, class changes, etc.

Looks like one week after Blizzcon, the new expansion for World of Warcraft is being release.  Warlords of Draenor release date is November 13th.

There will be pre-expansion events.  We will also be able to run the new UBRS at level 90 for a limited time.  It will be interesting to see what loot drops from there.
