Patch 3.0.2 Inc!

And now, the end is near…

… we have to face Patch 3.0.2. Nach wochenlangen Spekulationen ob das Ende der Arena Season gleichzeitig der Patchday sein wird, gibt es Heute nun Klarheit:

"This Wednesday there will be an extended maintenance to apply patch 3.0.2. Please note that all European realms will be offline from 02:00 until 14:00, Paris time (CEST)."

Was kommt da also nun genau am Mittwoch auf uns zu? Ein paar Dinge werden aus dem Spiel verschwinden…

Once this patch is deployed, the following content will be disabled or removed :
· The Atiesh quest-chain will not be completable anymore.
· The Bear Mount from Zul’aman will no longer drop.
· The Onyxia quest-chain has been removed from the game.
· Naxxramas is "removed" from the game and moved to Dragonblight. (Unreachable until WotLK, obviously)
· The ability to get titles related to Tier 4 or Tier 5 content is being removed. Of course, players who got them before the patch keep them. (Hand of A’dal, Champion of the Naaru)

… andere werden hinzugefügt…

Also, a few things are being changed or added :
· Barbershops are now available in capital cities !
· The amount of experience needed to level from 60 to 70 has been lowered.
· New graphical effects are being added to the game, including the new shadow engine
· The Stormwind Harbor will be available, but you won’t be able to travel to Northrend until the release of WotLK. However it does have a working boat travelling between Auberdine and Stormwind.
· The Caverns of Time have been slightly modified to add an entrance for CoT: Stratholme. The instance itself won’t be available before WotLK, only the entrance is being added.
· Mounts and Vanity Pets are now trainable spells and the old items will be used to teach you these spells. Once a mount or pet is learned you can access it through the Character Panel.
· Various tokens like Badges of Justice or Honor Points are all merged in the new Token Interface. It will also remove the Badges of Justice and PvP Tokens from your bags to free up even more space !
· The in-game Calendar used to schedule raids or events between your friends and guildmate will be available by typing /calendar

… vieles ändert sich…

Item changes
· +Healing and +Spell damage stats are being merged into a single +Spell power stat. Healers‘ talents and spells have been updated accordingly to compensate this change.
· Items with magic school-specific damage like +shadow or +nature have been converted to +spell power as well. This include most of the TBC items except for some enchantments like Sunfire or Soulfrost.
· Protection Paladin and Tanking Warrior sets to reflect changes on the new mechanics. A lot of non set items are also being changed.
Raid changes
· Raids buffs, debuffs, and auras stacking have been revamped.
· All TBC raid monsters will have their health reduced by about 30%.
· The standard melee damage output will be reduced as well.
· Boss abilities remain unchanged, except for Illidan who won’t use Shear anymore.

New Arenas
Two new arenas are being added to the game, the Dalaran Arena and the Orgrimmar Arena.
