WoW Archivist: World of Warcraft patch 1.3

The WoW Archivist explores the secrets of World of Warcraft's past. What did the game look like years ago? Who is etched into WoW's history? What secrets does the game still hold?

Less than four months after the release of patch 1.2, which introduced the 5-man dungeon Maraudon, came patch 1.3 and yet another new 5-man dungeon -- or rather, three new 5-man dungeons rolled into one. Patch 1.3 introduced Dire Maul to the game. Dire Maul's three-in-one format remains rather unique in World of Warcraft. Nothing like it has ever been attempted again. Patch 1.3 also included many other noteworthy details:
  • Blizzard began its trend of implementing popular addons into the game's default UI.
  • The first steps towards capping the number of players that could enter a dungeon or raid were put in place.
  • The very first incarnation of the Dungeon Finder tool appeared. No, it wasn't useful in any imaginable way.
