- The Black Temple:
The Temple of Karabor was the center of draenei worship until its priests were slaughtered by demonically corrupted orcs. In the massacre’s aftermath, the warlocks of the Shadow Council seized the structure and gave it a new name: The Black Temple. When the Alliance invaded Draenor after the Second War, the orc shaman Ner’zhul hastily opened several dimensional portals to escape. The resulting magical backlash ripped the world apart. Drawn by these portals, the pit lord Magtheridon entered Draenor, soon to become known as Outland, and took the temple as his seat of power. His dominion over Outland remained unchallenged until the arrival of Illidan the Betrayer. The pit lord proved no match for the wielder of the Twin Blades of Azzinoth. Today Illidan occupies the temple, awaiting any and all who would challenge his rule.
- Nether Drake:
The Netherwing faction quest line continues, making the much-anticipated Nether Drake available. The Nether Drake is a special 280% speed epic flying mount that is obtainable through solo and small-group play. The quest to obtain one will be difficult, but the reward will surely show your dedication to the Netherwing cause as you soar through the skies of Outland on your very own ethereal drake.
- The Ruins of Lordaeron Arena:
For those engaging in the Steamwheedle Cartelâ€™s gladiatorial combat, an arena nestled within the Ruins of Lordaeron has been added to the mix of venues. Players taking part in either rated battles or skirmishes may now find themselves battling for glory within the new arena.
- Druid Epic Flight Form Introduced – The Druid Epic flight form will be available through a series of quests, similar to the Warlock and Paladin Epic mount quests before it. This quest series will also open up a new boss in Sethekk Halls, and ultimately lead to the epic flight form.
- Three New Solo or Small-Group Level -70 Areas
