Blizzard Announces Pre-Wrath Content Patch

The fine folks at WoW Insider broke the news, but it looks like Blizzard is planning on a major content patch right before they release the upcoming expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.

This isn’t a huge surprise; they did the same thing before Burning Crusade, but the fact that they’re making the announcement now and that most people are predicting that the patch will land on the PTR (Patch Test Realms) any week now means that Wrath might be closer than we all think!

The new patch is supposed to include a lot of the new content that’s already available in the beta that Blizzard developers already have mostly hammered down, including:

  • New talent trees (including 51 point talents!)
  • New zepplin towers (Horde) and Stormwind Harbor (Alliance) for travel to Northrend
  • 2 new arenas
  • The hunter pet skill revamp (talent trees for pets)
  • Built-in guild calendar (making the Group Calendar add-on obsolete)
  • Barbershops in capital cities (Night Elf Mohawk anyone?)
  • New skill: Inscription
  • New class spells and talents

Pretty slick, eh? Looks like slowly but surely Blizzard is implimenting the new content that will bring some players who have been anxiously waiting for new content back to the game and prime the pump for Wrath. Also, expect another hot steamy world event right before Wrath, just like we had the Scourge Invasion before Burning Crusade!
