6.0 Prelaunch Event

Post by Termínator™ on Sun Oct 12, 2014 10:49 pm

Players can complete special events in the Blasted Lands and UBRS to prepare for the new story in
Warlords of Draenor.

  • In the Blasted Lands, players can complete a short questline to receive several rewards:
  •   The Iron Invasion, Iron Vanguard title, Iron Starlette battle pet.
  • This version of the Blasted Lands is phased--low-level players can still quest as normal.
  • You can easily get to the Blasted Lands in 6.0 by taking the new Shattered Beachhead
  • portals in major capital cities.
  • Players can kill several bosses in a new 90-only version of UBRS for ilvl 550 loot.
  • Click here to see all of the special UBRS loot.

Class and Glyph Changes



  • All class changes are coming in the Warlords of Draenor prepatch,
  • except Level 100 talents and Level 92+ Draenor Perks will be inaccessible.
  • We have put together a series of guides organizing the spell changes for each class.
  • We’ll also have a series of updated class guides from our guide writers on how to
  • play your class in 6.0:

    • Warlords of Draenor Death Knight Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Druid Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Hunter Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Mage Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Monk Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Paladin Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Priest Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Rogue Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Shaman Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Warlock Changes
    • Warlords of Draenor Warrior Changes


  • Some glyphs are now classified as Exclusive or Specialization Specific.

    • An Exclusive glyph means that it is one of several glyphs that modify an ability,
    • and you cannot have multiple active at once. We have added this information on
    • glyph item tooltips and our Warlords talent calculator will not let you add two
    • similar glyphs.
    • A Specialization Specific glyph offers no benefits when that spec is not selected.
    • Several glyphs are now automatically learned as you level up, and we have added that information to spell glyph tooltips.


  • Many raid buffs and debuffs have changed. Check out this excellent guide by Zarac to see what specs bring which buffs now.
  • While Multistrike and Versatility are currently not found on gear, several modified buffs provide these stat gains such as Unholy Aura and Dark Intent.

Group Finder

With the new Group Finder, players can create or find groups for Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios, Legacy Raids, Arenas, Skirmishes, Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and custom content. Arenas and RBGs will not be available in the 6.0 prepatch as the season will have ended.

  • To access the Group Finder, just click on the Group Finder button (looks like a green eyeball). This merges in the functionality from the old Dungeon Finder and PvP buttons.
  • All of these types of premade groups let you start or specify a group, specify a location or instance if applicable, and a Voice Chat system.
  • Most interestingly, you can require a minimum item level for your group but it cannot be higher than your own.

Guild Leveling Removed

Blizzard will be changing how guild perks and leveling work in Warlords of Draenor.

  • All guilds will essentially be level 25, and some perks will be streamlined, such as flight path taxis moving faster instead of requiring Ride Like the Wind.
  • Due to some unintended poor behavior among players, the Cash Flow perk will be removed as well. To compensate for this, there will be more lucrative ways for guilds to finance their costs, such as having more BoE epic drops in raids.
  • These are the remaining guild perks: Mount Up, Hasty Hearth, The Quick and the Dead, Guild Mail, Mobile Banking, Mass Resurrection

Item Changes



  • Items are receiving a stat squish in the prepatch. You will not feel weaker, your stats will just be scaled down for visual purposes. You will still be able to solo old instances.
  • Several stats are being removed:

    • Hit and Expertise are removed and have been converted into Critical Strike, Haste, or Mastery on existing gear. In addition, all players now have a 100% chance to hit and 0% chance to glance when fighting creatures up to 3 levels higher.
    • Dodge and Parry are removed and have been converted into Critical Strike, Haste, or mastery on armor pieces, or Bonus Armor on non-armor pieces. In addition, all players now have 0% chance to be dodged and 3% chance to be parried. Tanks receive an additional 3% reduction in chance to be parried.


  • Several stats have been modified:

    • Spirit is only found on non-armor pieces--necks, rings, cloak, trinkets.
    • Bonus Armor is only found on tank-appropriate Non-Armor pieces (necks, rings, cloak, trinkets, shields). This increases the tank's armor.
    • Weapons, while classified as non-armor, do not have spirit or bonus armor.


  • Gems, enchants, flasks, and food are also affected by the stat squish and itemization changes. For example, all +hit gems (Rigid) are becoming +crit, and all all +expertise gems (Precise) are becoming +haste.
  • You can swap between the Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor versions of items by clicking on the expansion names to the direct left of the search box at the top of a database page.
  • You can still upgrade Mists of Pandaria epics, even though Valor Points are going away. Each upgrade will take 50 lesser Charms.
  • Reforging is permanently going away and currently reforged gear will revert to its pre-reforged state.

Many additional item changes are coming in Warlords of Draenor, such as new secondary stats and gear that changes stats based on your spec. We’ve covered them all in our Guide to Item Changes in Warlords of Draenor.

Raid Changes

[url=javascript:;][/url]

  • Garrosh Hellscream has a 100% chance to drop an heirloom for your loot spec if you have not acquired one yet. Click here to see a list of Garrosh heirlooms.
  • Siege of Orgrimmar will still have four difficulties, but the names are changing. There is LFR, Normal (currently Flex), Heroic (currently Normal), and Mythic (currently Heroic).
  • Normal and Heroic raids will be flexible size and scale between 10 and 30 players. Mythic raiding is fixed at 20 players. On Wowhead, you can see how a boss’ ability scales by visiting the Dungeon Journal section on a boss' WoD page, clicking on a spell (example: Molten Torrent), moving the slider, and then selecting the raid difficulty.
  • All Siege of Orgrimmar Heroic achievements will automatically convert to Mythic achievements in the prepatch.
  • The Dungeon Journal now features a quick list of things each role should know. We now display this information in addition to the existing spell info on our boss pages.
  • Siege of Orgrimmar raid drops are being refactored in Blizzard’s data. Their post-6.0 versions have received new pages in the database, so as part of our 6.0 database maintenance, we’ve duplicated all comments and screenshots onto these new pages and marked the old pages as unavailable.
  • Each difficulty will have its own weekly lockout. Heroic and Mythic are not on the same lockout for social and technical reasons. Read Blizzard's Warlords of Draenor Raiding Plans for a more in-depth explanation.
  • Warforged Seal no longer caps at 10.
  • You can now solo queue for LFR Dragon Soul from Auridormi.

Toy Box


The Toy Box is a popular collections tool that lets you store an account-wide array of vanity items.

  • There are 222 total toys and you can collect a maximum of 156 in the prepatch.
  • Collecting 150 toys rewards The Toymaster and  Robo-Gnomebulator.
  • You can access the Toy Box panel via the Collection button in-game.
  • To add an item to the Toy Box, all you have to do is click on the item in one character’s bag and then it’s automatically learned and saved across all characters.
  • Toys cover a variety of vanity items--disguises, special spell effects, summoned objects, banners, items that make your character emote, Trading Card loot.
  • Toys do not cover mounts, pets, gear you can equip with cool effects, stackable items, and teleports.
  • Several unobtainable items are in the Toy Box. These increase your total, but if you do not have this toy, it will not show up in the UI to frustrate you.

We have an extensive Toy Box Guide with screenshots and information on how to obtain every item, and we also have a Toy Box Items Hub with a special image gallery mode that you can filter by source, expansion, etc.
