Pre Patch! 6.0.2 The Iron Tide

America has it!

Pre patch has launched, the US website is up again and everything is being explored and tested across the pond.

The Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands has turned blood red. Hundreds of strange-looking orcs are violently pouring into Azeroth, killing everything that stands in their path. Nethergarde and Okril’lon have already fallen, and while the Horde and the Alliance moved as quickly as they could to get reinforcements to their people, they are too late. The Iron Horde invasion has begun.

In this desperate hour, King Wrynn and Warchief Vol’jin have called upon their greatest champions to join the front lines in the Blasted Lands and do whatever they can to stop the Iron Horde… Before the rest of Azeroth falls before them.
Prepare yourself. Draenor is waiting.


Exciting times!

Upper Blackrock Spire is available for lvl 90’s now. So with that we can finally test the new group finder system!

The toy box has arrived, meaning that your account has access to the fun things you have gathered on your travels.

Materials stack to 200. OMG YES.

Reagent tab at the bank.

And more void storage!

Everything you worked so hard to reforge correctly? Gone. Everything has been put back as it was… expect to see some strange stats when you log in on the EU patch day!

All the ability pruning has come into play. So new rotations may need to be worked out and practiced on.


So what have people been saying?


People are PISSED at the makeovers characters have had. Taurean females are being bashed as are characters whose hair doesn’t move 24/7.

@Rygarius: I dunno how you can call what was done to tauren females finished by copy and pasting the males fur pattern to them instead of giving them the fur pattern they had on the old model. And that’s ignoring the goat grin they have now.

That and races seem to have uneven levels of work to them that scream unfinished. Female trolls have fully animated hair while many other races have no animated hair or hair only animated in certain animations like female draenei hair being animated only when walking.

@Amaterásu: The main issues since artcraft came out in July (quite some time ago now) was:
Bear/Dog Nose. Are you a cow or something else?
Never ending smile in both mouth and eyes.
Never closing her mouth because reasons.
Losing her own fur patterns in place for male textures and less of them. One texture can ruin the face with the white stripes for players.


Warlocks are complaining about being nerfed :-/

@Róku: Warlocks have been targeted for this expansion.. We were already nerfed to begin with.. the changes that they made is even worse for us..

Oh, well. I will not be PvPing as a caster in WoD.. It just seem so unfair compare to all the other melee classes or… HUNTER… LOL.

Scribes are SUPER PISSED about glyphs being learnt by everyone as they level. (I’m a scribe and apart from shoulder enchants I have done absolutely nothing with my profession for many many many months as glyphs don’t shift, darkmoon cards are worthless and the staffs are pointless now)

Gotrik 1 hour ago
so basically inscriptionists got cut off at the ankles and the knees. they are no longer valid as a profession? that completely wasted a lot of time spent leveling inscription. so is there going to be anything added to still keep that profession worth it.
Redsteel 58 minutes ago
Pretty much this, bad move with the baseline glyphs Blizz. Inscription was already pretty pissweak to begin with…
Devouing Plague is causing brain hurt for priests
Rogerz 8 hours ago
Devouring Plague now heals for 2% of maximum health per tick (up from 1%).

Devouring Plague now always costs 3 Shadow Orbs, and now heals the Priest for 100% of all damage it deals, instead of healing per tick.

Something wrong here?

@Rogerz: I noticed that myself and I am beyond confused how that will work.
