Welcome to the first in an ongoing series of programming- and engineering-focused articles that, over time, will cover some of the technical nuts and bolts that go into creating and running World of Warcraft.

With the availability of the updated character models and animations that are being added with Warlords of Draenor, we’ve seen a question pop up among the community: “Will I be able to customize my face?” The simple answer is “yes.”
As your journey takes you from Pandaria to Draenor, we wanted to extend one last opportunity to obtain your Legendary Cloak—and share some important updates related to this iconic item.
With the upcoming Warlords of Draenor pre-patch (6.0.2), we will be releasing long-dormant character names back into the wild. If you want to preserve the names of any characters you have not played since November 2008, then log them into the game now!
Patch 6.0.2 is now available for testing on the Public Test Realms (PTR)! Please be aware that PTR patch notes are preliminary and not final. Details may change before retail release and new information will be added for additional features as development continues on the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
We’re looking for a few good testers to level up on the StarCraft II PTR.
Two days just aren’t enough to contain all of this year’s BlizzCon eSports action! This year’s finals for the StarCraft II, Hearthstone, and World of Warcraft World Championships kick off at a special World Championship Opening Weekend October 31 through November 2 at the ESL Studio in Burbank, CA.
With Warlords of Draenor set to launch on Thursday, November 13, we’ve seen a few questions about how that fits in with our plans for the upcoming 10-year anniversary content. We’re looking forward to celebrating this epic milestone with you, and we want to make sure everyone has plenty of opportunity to take part while still being able to fully enjoy what the expansion has to offer.
