Warlords of Draenor: Developer Interview von ReadyCheck Podcast

Hey guys! This week, Forrseti and Toman were very privileged to be invited to visit the EU Blizzard HQ in Versailles for a day of gawking and geeking. While we were there, we took part in a Q&A with two of WoWs lead developers, Brian Holinka (Lead PVP Designer) and Ion Hazzikostas (Lead Encounter Designer). We were able to ask a few questions about Warlords of Draenor, and got some real insights from two guys at the forefront of development in the new expansion. It was such a treat, so thank you so much to everyone at Blizzard for the opportunity, and especially to Brian and Ion for taking time out of their busy days to talk to us.

Click through below to read the transcript in full from the interview. There are a LOT of great titbits in there.

Anyway, to the podcast! This week we talk about:

  • The new raven mount – where’s it from?;
  • We cover Blackhand in War-LORE-ds of Draenor;
  • Some interesting points from our Q&A session;
  • The recent WoW Infographic;
  • …and much more!
