We’ve recently implemented an often requested feature to enable cross-realm raiding for Siege of Orgrimmar. Cross-realm BattleTag™ and Real ID friends can now raid together and take the fight to Garrosh on Normal or Heroic difficulty. Players will be able to earn greater rewards such as Reins of the Kor'kron War Wolf or the title of Conqueror/Liberator of Orgrimmar; both of which aren’t available to be earned within Flexible or Raid Finder difficulty.
For one night only, former Top-10 Raider and world-class Goldmaker Elvine will be a special guest streamer on our Twitch Channel. He will be streaming a live "fun run", open to anybody with access to a US WoW account. Simply make a lvl one Gnome on Stormreaver US-Alliance! To register your interest in the fun run, you can sign up here:[Event: #OR Presents: Fun Run w/Elvine]
During the fun run (which will be streamed live), Elvine will be answering general questions about Gold Making and the Transmog Market. After a run from Gnomeregan to Darnassus, Elvine will head to the Auction House and begin a tutorial on using his favorite AH addons, including tips and tricks for working the market to your advantage as a seller and buyer.
Special Giveaway from SteelSeries
During the event (sometime between 8pm-11pm EST), we will be giving away an MMO Wireless Gaming Mouse from our friends at SteelSeries! You must be present at the event to win. You must have an active OpenRaid account with at least one character attached and no current warnings/bans on your account.
This event is open to EVERYONE! If you have a US account (Trial is ok, so even our EU friends can come!), you can attend the fun run!

Countless adventurers continue to brave the most trying versions of Mists of Pandaria dungeons, but the clock is ticking. This “season” of Challenge Modes will be coming to an end with the upcoming release of a patch prior to the expansion’s release.
Challenge Modes are designed to offer as close to a “normalized” difficulty as possible, and they’re tuned to be tough to master. With Warlords of Draenor’s class changes, itemization changes (e.g. the removal of Hit and Expertise), and—of course—increased level cap on the horizon, the difficulty of Mists of Pandaria’s dungeons will no longer be tuned the same as they were. In the spirit of fair play, when the aforementioned patch is released a little while before the new expansion launches, the current slate of Challenge Mode dungeons will no longer be available, and the achievements they award will be converted to Feats of Strength. The reward items will still be available for purchase by those who qualified prior to the end of the season, but it will not be possible for new players to earn those rewards going forward.
If you still need to earn your Undaunted title, Ancestral Phoenix, or class-specific Transmogrification sets, now’s the time to get out there and prove your worth. In Warlords of Draenor, an entirely new set of Challenge Modes will be available . . . and with them an array of new rewards for you to earn. Until then, stay sharp!
