has released a new World of Warcraft dev blog
clarifying its 10th anniversary plans in light of Warlords of Draenor's
impending launch on November 13th. In short, the festivities will begin on November 21st and run until well after the holidays on January 6th. Those who pony up for a sub in that time period will be awarded the Molten Corgi minipet. If you rush to the new level cap in time, you'll also be able to play through the new level-capped Molten Core raid; if not, then you can still play the new Southshore vs. Tarren Mill battleground, which comes in both level 90-99 and level 100 brackets.
Blizzard further notes that the new PvP season and the normal and heroic versions of Draenor's
first raid dungeon, Highmaul, will not open until December 2nd to "make sure that everyone [has] had time to level up." Highmaul's LFR and mythic modes will open another week after that.
Massively's sister site WoW Insider also has some good news for Draenor
devotees this morning: It appears that facial recustomization
is now part of the regular barber shop in beta, possibly alleviating the fears of those worried about being saddled with an ugly pixel face once the new race models are live.
