Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands guides and patch notes now available

Patch 4.2 is on the horizon as Blizzard has made guides and patch notes available for Rage of the Firelands, the next exciting chapter in the Cataclysm story. Players can go the WoW community website for content and feature guides on everything from the dungeon journal and Thrall's epic quest Elemental Bonds, to Firelands armor set previews and explanations about the new daily quest hubs. Also available are the PVP content features, the developer balance changes and casual content blogs, as well as a dedicated section (that is not yet updated) for troubleshooting and known patch issues. Everything is available in one place, a new, comprehensive listing that Blizzard hasn't really done for other patches before. It's a really nice touch.

Oh, and there's a whole bunch of official patch notes.

Here's your definitive link guide to patch 4.2:
For PVPers, Blizzard has got you covered with loads of news:
  • Two new mounts, the Vicious War Wolf and the Vicious War Steed will be rewards for 75, 150, and 300 Rated Battlegrounds wins. They are even bind-to-account, so you can mail them off to your alts.
  • Season 10's armor sets got a nice preview and are looking as ferocious as ever.
  • Before a new PVP season begins, the previous one has to end. Check out how the transition happens and what players who are expecting rewards from season 9 should be cautious of while the results are being tallied.
  • The War Games system got an overhaul and is back with patch 4.2.
Blizzard has had a lot to say about the newest patch and what it means for players:
  • Ghostcrawler went all out, explaining each and every balance change, spelling out what it means to be a developer on a game this daunting. Phew. Good on you, crabs.
  • Dave "Fargo" Kosak penned his first Dev Watercooler, discussing how patch 4.2 brings in a bunch of content for casual 85s and what Blizzard's philosophy relating to the casual player really is. We were excited to find out that Fargo is now the lead quest designer for World of Warcraft!
Remember, happy patch day everyone.

The news is already rolling out for the upcoming WoW Patch 4.2! Preview the new Firelands raid, marvel at the new legendary staff, and get the inside scoop on new quest hubs -- plus new Tier 12 armor!

WoW.com's Guide to patch 3.3

With the release of patch 3.3 we can now begin the final assault on Arthas and the Icecrown Citadel. Players will march forth sounding the cry of battle as they go up against the final foes of Wrath of Lich King. As each day passes and each boss falls (and each gate opens), Arthas is one step closer to becoming history.

But Icecrown Citadel and the Frozen Throne isn't the only thing patch 3.3 brings. We've seen perhaps the most significant revamp to instance running ever with the introduction of cross-server instances in the new Dungeon Finder system. In addition, there have been numerous changes elsewhere in game that players are raving over.

The sheer amount of content is hard for anyone to keep up with, and we've been steadily updating the WoW.com Guide to Patch 3.3 with everything we've written about the patch (over 250 articles now).

As you venture out into this new patch, head back to the guide for everything you need to know. Just watch out for Frostmourne, you don't want it to steal your soul.

Updates to WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1


Unless you've been living under a rock this past week, you've no doubt heard about this whole "Patch 3.1" thing. Yesterday Blizzard called it their largest content patch to date, and it certainly is shaping up to be that way.

The only problem with large content updates like this is that, well, they're large. They're ginormious. Mom! Meatloaf! Now! (Who can resist using two completely unrelated Will Ferrell quotes in the same paragraph?)

We've been updating the WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1 quite a bit this past week, and have included all the content we've published concerning patch 3.1. Take a look at it and get all your questions answered. And if you have more questions, be sure to hop on over to The Queue and ask away.

Some of the highlight from this past week include:
Something tells me, however, that the best is yet to come... stay tuned!
