Whether you are a die hard player of World of Warcraft, hate it or are just plain sick of it, it’s hard to dispute the shear size, scope and quality of the game’s content. The latest offering by Blizzard does not disappoint. Plus they make a great teaser video!
Blizzard has announced that Hour of Twilight, the third update for World of Warcraft’s Cataclysm expansion pack, has is now live. The huge patch provides players with a “ton” of new content, adding new dungeons, raids and a new features that makes raid groups easier to find. Finally you will get to fight Deathwing.
If you’re a regular player of World of Warcraft, you already know, but for those that have been able to get the monkey off their back, the new patch brings some fairly big things to Azeroth.
First and foremost, there are new dungeons and a new raid called Dragon Soul. Groups of 25 and 10 will fight through this dungeon until they reach the final encounter, Deathwing. As you might imagine, the gear dropped reflects the difficulty of the task.
If you’re not in a high end raiding guild, Blizzard has your back. The new Raid Finder feature operates much like the Dungeon Finder and sets you up with a balanced group to take on these monstrous challenges. Difficulty is scaled down as is loot, but if you want to experience Dragon Soul and take out Deathwing, the Raid Finder will help you do it.
One other feature that’s certain to make old-school players happy is Transmogrification, which allows you to make your new gear look like your old gear. No longer will you have to decide between style and stats – you can have both in one.
Of course, there’s a lot more to the patch than can be summed up here, so hit up Blizzard for the official notes.
