Patch 3.0.2 Echoes of Doom

So I’m not really sure what I’m going to write about yet and until I find my ‘niche’ this is going to be about everything and nothing. Enjoy.

World of Warcraft: Patch 3.0.2 “Echoes of Doom”

Tomorrow after the extended maintenance, patch 3.0.2 will go live! For those of us who are even slightly interested in this, this means a lot of things are going to happen when you sign in. Keep in mind some of your addons might break, I suggest you disable them and re-enable them as you go. (My entire UI will probably break >.<)

As you might have seen from my screenshots or even your own exploration of the PTR a whole lot of the WotLK features are comming in this patch. A few of these include: Achievements, new talent trees (You get a free talent reset) and maybe even the new profession Inscriptions.

New pet windows will take care of the bag space used up by all your mounts and vanity pets, right click em to ‘learn’ them and they no longer take up precious bag space.  New zeppelin towers in Orgrimmar and Undercity that will eventually take you to Northrend.  For the alliance an all new area has been built in Stormwind with boats that take you to Auberdine and Northrend. No longer will you have to run through Wetlands to get to Iron Forge with your Night Elf.

Dalaran has moved to its new home in the skies of Dragonblight from Alterac Mountains and left a big ‘ol crater behind. The same will be true for the old 40 man raid instance Naxxramas which in WotLK will be a 10 & 25 man entry raid.

Amani war bears and some titles like “Champion of the Naaru” will no longer be available.  So if you want the Feats of Strength associated with them (Including any last splinters for Atiesh Greatstaff) You have til 6am PST to get them. Good luck!

A built in threat meter that will alert you when you’re pulling aggro by showing a percentage of threat in the target frame and tooltip is a welcomed addition. A focus frame lets you right click on a targets frame and “Set Focus” which can be used with “Focus cast key” to heal or polymorph your focus without changing your target.

This is just touching on a few of the things I’m excited to see tomorrow, major game changes are about to hit us. For the full patchnotes go here.

That’s it for now. Next post wont be as much WoW I promise.  Haven’t decided if I want to write about pc games or pc gaming in general yet, what do you think? Comment! ^^
