New World of Warcraft patch, must exit Battle.net


There is a new build tonight that Blizzard just pushed up to the servers. It requires a very small patch, and as of right now if you haven't shut down your Battle.net Desktop Client, you're going to get an "incompatible version" error without being prompted to patch the game.

To solve this you'll need to fully exit the Battle.net client and restart it. The easiest way to exit the client, from Windows, is to right click on the tray icon and select "Exit." Once you open the client back up WoW will patch itself to version 19116 (down from 19227, interestingly), and you'll be back in business.

New Blood Elf model revealed



Blizzard has just published the new models for the Blood Elves. The models were not originally included with the release of Warlords of Draenor. Blizzard delayed the model to make it as good as possible, and we're finally seeing some of those results. We don't have an exact release date for the new models to appear in-game, however Blizzard notes that the creation process has been streamlined and they hope to have them out soon.

There's downtime today, and that's interrupting my normal routine of garrison farming. Must get those resources as soon as they're available.

Zemaya asked:

So I'm doing the Exarch/Maarad quests in Shadowmoon, the one where you find the wagon and protect it. There happens to be a female Panda farmer follower with them. My Q : How can that be?

Blood Elf model preview coming Tuesday



Hold on to your elf ears! The Blood Elf model preview will be coming to an internet near you tomorrow, Tuesday, November 24. A tweet from the new @WarcraftDevs (which you should all be following) let us know about the impending release earlier today.

The Blood Elf model is the last model we've been waiting for. It got delayed from WoD's release because of reasons that have never really been fully spelled out. But nonetheless, Blizzard is delivering on their promise to get it out with a patch shortly after release... so stay tuned!
