Town Hall: Heroes #36 - "A Resurgance of Friends and Enemies"
This week on Town Hall: Heroes, the crew had on special guest LiquidSheth and discussed BlizzCon, a recap on Heroes eSports, meta comparison between regions, and on the rise teams.
Much like last night, we're taking a peek at yet another mount that is not currently available to players but will be in the near future. The Ironside Dire Wolf is most likely a reward for those who purchase the Physical or Digital Collector's Edition of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, although it has not been officially confirmed. The client states that it is a reward for playing Warlords, but it is certainly ambiguous.
The dire wolf comes in three different tints, Grey, Black, and Brown, and should be available around the release of Warlords of Draenor which is on November 13th, 2014. See below for a mount comic and a video of it in action.
Tonight we're taking a peek at the upcoming reward for purchasing a BlizzCon 2014 Virtual/Physical Ticket, the Nexus Charger. The mount features a trail effect which displays ethereal squares around you when you move. The charger comes in three different tints, Blue, Purple, and Yellow. See below for a mount comic and a video of it in action.
Town Hall: Heroes #35 - "Anub? Who's a-newb!?"
