Patch 6.1 for World of Warcraft continues to bring the silliest additions to the game.


You don’t need to play World of Warcraft to know that the game’s upcoming 6.1 patch, currently only available in Public Test Realm (PTR), will be bringing a slew of unusual features to the most popular MMO.

First, it was Twitter integration and then then came the item that allows your character to take selfies.
