Warlords of Draenor UI Updates
Blizzard posted a blog today which went over several of the UI updates coming in Warlords of Draenor. If you'd like to read that blog, expand the blue box below. We've also got a Wowhead Warlords of Draenor UI Guide, which you can read by following the link!
<p>As players testing <a href="http:\/\/battle.net\/wow\/en\/blog\/15214662\/">Patch 6.0.2 on our Public Test Realm<\/a> (PTR) have already seen, we\u2019re making a number of changes to the WoW user interface\u2014changes that are designed to eliminate clutter, free up more of your inventory space, help you find your stuff more easily, and improve your quality of life in-game.<\/p>
<p><strong>Map & Quest Log<\/strong><\/p>
<p>In Patch 6.0.2, we\u2019ve made a brand-new UI to bring together the Map and the Quest Log with everything you need to manage multiple ongoing adventures. Now when you browse by zone in the Map & Quest Log, you\u2019ll find all of the associated quests you\u2019re on, your progress, and relevant cartography.<\/p>
<p>In addition to intelligently ordering your quests, the new window (default hotkeys: <em>M<\/em> or <em>L<\/em>) gives you more information about your objectives right on the map. It also features scroll-wheel zooming, click-and-hold panning, and a handy View All Quests button\u2014plus, if you leave it open while you\u2019re moving, it fades so that you can see both the map and the landscape you\u2019re venturing into.<\/p>
<p>All of the fun \u201ctoy\u201d items that you\u2019ve accumulated over the course of your travels now have a new home in the Toy Box. As with mounts and pets, you\u2019ll right-click on eligible toy items in your inventory to send them to your Toy Box. Once learned, the toy will be accessible by all characters on your account.<\/p>
<p>If you want to expand and complete your collection of toys (or mounts or pets!), you can see each of the ones that you have not yet unlocked, along with information on how they can be obtained. As you might expect, any toy that you\u2019ve learned can be dragged from the Toy Box and placed on a toolbar for fast access.<\/p>
<p><strong>How to Randomize Your Dragon<\/strong><\/p>
<p>There is now a Summon Random Favorite Mount button at the top-right of your Mounts collection (default hotkey: <em>Shift-P<\/em>). This smart button selects randomly from among the mounts that you\u2019ve marked as favorites, and chooses a mount that is suitable for your current zone and situation. For example:<\/p>
<li>In a zone where you can\u2019t fly, it will choose from among your favorite ground mounts.<\/li>
<li>If you\u2019re swimming on the surface of a body of water and you have a Water Strider favorited, it will be chosen.<\/li>
<li>If you\u2019re submerged and you\u2019ve favorited your Sea Turtle, the button will summon it.<\/li>
<p>Right-click and select Set Favorite on your favorite mounts to get started.<\/p>
<p><strong>Bags, Bags, Bags<\/strong><\/p>
<p>In Patch 6.0.2, bags can be given designations for particular types of items. These include:<\/p>
<li>Equipment \u2013 Your armor and weapons<\/li>
<li>Consumables \u2013 Food and drink, potions, etc.<\/li>
<li>Trade Goods \u2013 Items that are used in professions (herbs, cloth, ore, skins, etc.)<\/li>
<p>When you go to your main backpack and click the Clean Up Bags button in the top-right, your belongings are sorted into your bags based on the designation you assigned to each bag, with overflow going into the backpack. Furthermore, there are now borders around the icons of all items that are colored to indicate item quality; recently looted items glow so that you can quickly spot them; and gray (junk) items have a gold coin icon when you visit a vendor.<\/p>
<p>You now have additional storage space in your bank! The new 98-slot Reagent Bank tab offers up extra slots for your profession materials, and an option to deposit every reagent that you\u2019re currently carrying in your bags. We\u2019ve also increased the maximum stack size for many materials and reagents, and when you craft anything\u2014from anywhere\u2014you\u2019ll now use materials that are stored back in the bank.<\/p>
<p><strong>But Wait, There\u2019s More!<\/strong><\/p>
<li>We\u2019ve added a new tab to the Void Storage system. That\u2019s an extra 80 slots for your long-term storage needs.<\/li>
<li>The dropdown menus you access when you right-click on a player portrait have been improved.<\/li>
<li>You can now manage your add-ons without having to log out.<\/li>
<li>The Dungeon Journal (default hotkey: <em>Shift-J<\/em>) has been updated with Warlords of Draenor entries.<\/li>
<p>To get a closer first look at all of the changes coming in Patch 6.0.2, please join us on the <a href="http:\/\/battle.net\/wow\/en\/blog\/15682579\/">Public Test Realm<\/a> (now live).<\/p>

Faction Capital Guide
Perculia has also previewed the faction hubs in Warlords of Draenor,

Ashran Images, Including Horde and Alliance Bases
2014/06/28 at 1:15 PM
We learned yesterday that the Horde and Alliance bases in Warlords of Draenor would be in Ashran, rather than in Karabor and Bloodspire as was previously anticipated. Wowhead made our way to Ashran to take some screenshots of the PvP island, and the Horde and Alliance bases. Ashran is situated off the coast of Tanaan Jungle, accessible by boat. You can observe the peninsula layout of the current Horde and Alliance bases.
It is very obvious from several of the pictures that these zones are unfinished, but nonetheless an interesting preview.
You can also see Community Manager Lore's post below, explaining the details and thinking behind the Ashran bases, and several tweets aimed at reassuring players.
