I haven’t heard many people in-game talking about the Warlords of Draenor release. What I have heard is a number of people in chat (both public and guild channels) complaining about the lack of things to do. What a lot of people aren’t thinking about is the number of achievements and events that are going away with the new release. Of course, those that did start wrapping up your achievements back in August are probably all caught up. But there’s rarely a shortage of things to do! First off, let’s talk achievements, and a few things you won’t be able to do on WoD release.
Get Your Mounts!
As always, group achievements are rotating out with the release of new raids. The “Ahead of the Curve: Garrosh Hellscream (10 and 25 player)” achievements are going away, and so is your last chance of getting Reins of the Kor’kron War Wolf.
While the Kor’kron Juggernaut may not be going away, you’ll certainly want to make a grab for it before Draenor release, as the chances of it dropping will plummet.
Reins of the Pandaren Phoenix will be available to you in all colors (account wide) if you already have any one of these.
On a side note… Now would also be a good time to get the Water Strider mount from the anglers. No flying for a while, so walking on water might be a plus!
Title, Achievement, and Challenge Mode Changes
Warlocks: You’ll still be able to get the pretty green fire, but if you get it before the new release you’ll get the title “of the Black Harvest” along with the achievement “Breaker of the Black Harvest”.
Challenge modes will be rotating out, and so will the titles that were able to be earned: “Mistwalker” for those who, at any point, held realm-best time and “the Undaunted” for players who completed 9/9 at least at bronze level.
“Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy!” is going away with the Upper Blackrock Spire changes, but “Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy…?” will still give you the Jenkins title.
“Ahead of the Curve” and “Cutting Edge” achievements for Garrosh are going away.
“Proving Yourself” bronze through endless (at 90) achievements, as well as “You’re doing it wrong”.
“I Thought He Was Supposed to be Hard?” for defeating Ra-den (Throne of Thunder) without dying.
Most of these are being converted to Feats of Strength or Legacy Achievements.
