World of Warcraft Players spot new feature in The War Within’s Warbands

World of Warcraft players have noticed their characters chilling on the new Warbands screen in The War Within Alpha.

Blizzard listened to feedback from players who wanted the game to be more alt-friendly, where they can easily switch characters without having to redo everything. The screen resembles a Diablo character screen and serves as a showcase for your favorite four characters. And yes, Horde and Alliance can coexist within the same Warband. Warbands combine all characters, items, collections, and progress across a player’s account.
