Magic Eight Ball Says: Outlook good for Patch 3.1 tomorrow

The World of Warcraft is waiting with bated breath tonight for the official announcement of Patch 3.1 going live tomorrow, and it appears that announcement will be coming soon.

WoW Insider has a few sources that are all pointing towards tomorrow as the release date, save some major internal mess up at Blizzard HQ. MMO-Champion also has some (Are our sources the same? The world may never know.), and Bibi is running a similar announcement over there. While these are, by definition, just rumors, they are taken quite credibly by many of us.

What does this mean for you?

It means you'll want to become familiar quickly with all the patch 3.1 changes if you haven't already. The best place to find out everything is via WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1. Be sure to check back on it throughout this evening as we get more information in and tomorrow as the floodgates open.

Should be a fun few days!

PTR is down, TTR is up

Hortus, the spinning whirly jig wearing gnome, announced on the forms today that the PTR will be closed until further notice. This closure is in order to encourage more people to test out the TTR, which will remain open for the time being.

This is important news. First, it signifies that Blizzard is at least comfortable in stopping the testing of PvE content. This might not be the best news for those that were still engaged in PTR activities; or for those that think there are still serious concerns regarding the content and class changes. We might be seeing the Druid Cyclone nerf stay.

Secondly, we can infer that the two stress tests they've held might not have been everything they wanted. If they're asking for more testing we can make an educated guess that Blizzard either did not see the kind of numbers they were hoping for, or they have made additional server changes that warrant additional tests. Judging from the lack luster stress test that went on Wednesday night, I'm leaning towards the former as being the reason for the change.
