‘Lords of War’ is a series of animations that tell the individual stories of five warlords by the names Kargath, Grommash, Durotan, Kilrogg and Maraad, who are featured heavily in the backstory of the upcoming ‘Warlords of Draenor’ expansion pack for ‘World of Warcraft.’ Their struggles and victories help set up the premise for the adventures to follow once the new expansion drops in November.
Preceded by ‘Mists of Pandaria,’ the upcoming ‘Warlords of Draenor’ expansion will be fifth expansion pack in the long running fantasy MMO series. It is set to have a plethora of new features including all new dungeons and raids as well as a new difficulty mode for the raids called Mythic. Players can now also build and upgrade their own garrison, a personal area where they recruit NPCs to do their dirty work so they can earn items. On top of these additions, the previous level cap of 90 has been expanded to 100 while alterations to Player versus Player (PvP) mode have been made to reduce crowd control abilities, change the way that items behave during fights and add a new PvP arena called Ashran.
The ‘Lords of War’ web series offers a nice combination of 3D and 2D animation that is pleasing to watch if you are a fan of the series. It is definitely worth a view even just for the sake of catching up on some of the lore that the series will be working with in the upcoming expansion.
