The patch could be going a bit smoother.
Well after day two of the patch the servers are still plagued by bizarre problems. My server had no NPCs. ANYWHERE. No fires. No furniture. Just a vast howling empty landscape.
Left to their own devices though, WoW players came through with some exciting impromptu content.
Some people explored the unexplorable (at their level) racking up huge XP.
The Horde raided Stormwind and the Alliance took the Undercity.
Of course a lot of hearthstones were used after the rolling restart brought back the NPCs.
And lots of people just took a leisurely tram or zeppelin ride just for the joy of it.
