WoW primed for major pre-WotLK content patch

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 26 August 2008 20:03 GMT


Speaking on the official WoW forums, a Blizzard rep’s confirmed a new content patch is on the way for the game, an update in anticipation of The Wrath of the Lich King’s release.

“We will be issuing a new content patch in the coming weeks,” he said. “Much like the patch made available shortly before The Burning Crusade’s release, this content patch is designed to bridge current game content with that of the expansion and will contain some exciting changes.”

That’s “exciting changes.” And here are some of them:

  • New class spells and talents
  • Stormwind Harbor
  • Two brand-new Arenas featuring challenging new layouts, terrain hazards, and moving obstacles
  • Barbershops in capital cities
  • Zeppelin towers outside of Orgrimmar and Tirisfal Glades
  • Guild calendar
  • Hunter pet skill revamp
  • New profession: Inscription

BARBERSHOPS. We’re pumped. We’re also on the verge of getting our first horse. Any new horse talents, Blizzard?
