Patch 6.2 is coming to World of Warcraft next week, and it's bringing with it a whole new zone to explore, a new raid in the Hellfire Citadel to repeatedly wipe in, and a bunch of other new features.

Tricksy orc shaman Gul'Dan has constructed a stronghold in the Tanaan Jungle, surrounded by hellfire and corrupted by the demon armies of the Burning Legion. Your job is to infiltrate and cleanse it.

The mob can put away their pitchforks and torches because Blizzard will in the future allow players to take to the skies on their mounts in World of Warcraft's Draenor. Why was it restricted airspace anyway?

Orgrim Doomhammer is just one of the subtly named orcs who'll be making their cinematic debut in Duncan Jones' film adaptation of World of Warcraft next year, and the first pictures of this key character in the fantasy mythos have been posted online.

It's actually pretty surprising how close the film's orcs are to their video game cohorts – both favour strong jawlines with pointy tusks, bulging muscles, and a permanent expression of grumpiness/maniacal rage.

Blizzard cracks down on World of Warcraft bot users, hands out over 100,000 six-month bans

Blizzard has been wielding its +1 Hammer of Justice against a horde of bot-using World of Warcraft players, handing out six-month bans against anyone found to be using "third-party programs that automate gameplay".

According to PCGamesN, it's the so-called 'Honorbuddy bot' that's been the focus of Blizzard's wrath, a program that automates the accumulation of PVP honor points. It's like these people don't understand the whole point of WoW - grind, grind, and grind some more.
