World of Warcraft Event Blog: Blizzcon 2013 Opening Ceremonies Live Blog

By Suzie Ford on November 08, 2013

We're going to kick things off right away with the Opening Ceremony, an event that will undoubtedly see a lot of exciting news dropped that will be fleshed out over the next two days.

BLIZZCON 2013 OPENING CEREMONIES

The first big panel after the opening ceremonies will focus on World of Warcraft, arguably the big news coming out of Blizzcon this year.

HERE WE GO!!!!

Mike Morhaime takes the stage and welcomes everyone to Blizzcon 2013.

"I want to thank all of you for your many years of support for Blizzard and our games. Thank you for making our dreams a reality."

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls playable on both PC and PlayStation 4.

"Two months ago we announced we're getting rid of the auction house. The auction house came with unintended consequences and the joy of finding that item was gone. Reaper of Souls is bringing major changes to the loot system to bring you  more satisfying loot drops. We want Diablo 3 to be the ultimate monster killing, loot collecting RPG."

Heroes of the Storm: Dustin Browder

Dustin Browder speaks now about how Blizzard has enjoyed passing the developer tools to their fans and they pay homage to the fans who have created an entire genre, MOBA.

Alpha game play footage from Heroes of the Storm looks fantastic:

"All of our heroes, all of our villains are here. We have to provide you with new challenges."

The team is looking for player input on how to make the game even better. Beta sign ups for Heroes of the Storm are going live TODAY!

HearthStone: Rob Pardo

"Hearthstone represents several new fronts: First tablet game, first free to play game, first game we announced and got out to the public in the same years."

This card goes to Blizzcon and Blizzcon Virtual Ticket holders:

Hearthstone will be out on iPhone and Android in the second half of next year. Open beta for PC will kick off in December.

World of Warcraft

The movie director and special effect director will be on hand at Blizzcon on Saturday.

This month is World of Warcraft's 9th anniversary. 

Pardo is taking a walk down memory lane with players about epic first time events in World of Warcraft. "SWOOP and GANK!"

"Thank you for letting us be your dungeon master all these years."

Chris Metzen takes the stage. "Don't think the journey is over yet."

"What if those dark days could come again? What if a pantheon of the most vicious villains could threaten us and hour homes again."

"How do you fight a savage enemy without becoming savage  yourself."

"Under the leadership of Vol'Jin, you have a chance to redefine yourselves to the world. But as is often true, to forge a brighter future, sometimes you must confront the ghosts of the past."

WARLORDS OF DRAENOR

  • Build and upgrade a garrison
  • New character models
  • Level cap increase to 100
  • New dungeons and raids
  • New monsters
  • New World PvP zone
  • New items and rewards
  • Hundreds of new quests
  • Boost to 90 and play instantly

Draenor is a land of magma and metal, stone and steam. City-forges wrap her twin moons in smog, and wheels deform the earth. Vicious saberon, winged arakkoa, spike-skinned gronn, and more unusual creatures rule the edges of the world, feasting on anything they kill.

Enigmatic draenei refugees have built a coastal foothold into a glimmering state replete with the libraries and worship-halls of their timeless civilization. Meanwhile, the Iron Horde’s slaves labor on engines of war pointed at the draenei and worlds beyond.

Kingdoms, clans, tribes, men, women, children – all are tense as coiled muscles.

To clash with the greatest army Draenor has ever known, you’ll need your own forces and your own fortress. Construct a mighty garrison: an enduring home base integrated seamlessly with the world, not a hiding spot far from the action. Customize it with specialized structures like farms, stables, armories, workshops and more.

Establish trade routes and unlock new quests, gear and pets to support your war for Draenor. Recruit stalwart followers to man your base, and send them to loot dungeons, fulfill missions, and craft items, even if you’re offline. Tame a deadly realm, and build an unbreakable monument to victory.

Before the orcs first invaded Azeroth, the Iron Horde rose to dominate a historic age. Only the heroes of past and present still defy the warlords of Draenor. Through a refined, flexible questing system, you’ll meet storied heroes and villains in battle without slowing your exploration of a forbidding land. As you and your allies win victories, you’ll be duly rewarded—any quest can randomly award bonus rare or epic items. Stand beside legends. Break the tide of steel.
