World of Warcraft 2.0 Patch News

The World of Warcraft, which seemingly is an unstoppable monster these days, will of course expand greatly in January 2007 with the release of the much anticipated expansion The Burning Crusade. But before the expansion is released, Blizzard will make sure current players see the benefit of some of the features from the expansion, and add them to the current game. Features such as expanded PvP and brand new talents along with the all new Honor system will be patched into the 7.5 million subscriber behemoth Blizzard currently runs. Here is what will be added - though note more may be added in the future this is just the first news on the 2.0 patch:

  • Revamped PvP Honor System - This new reward system will allow players to accumulate honor points that can be spent like currency to purchase weapons, armor, and various other items beneficial for player-vs.-player progression
  • New Talents - Each class will now have access to all-new talents in each of their three talent trees
  • Looking For Group Tool - This new tool is designed to assist players in finding groups for instanced dungeons and quests
  • Arena Skirmishes - Players will be able to queue for small-group, gladiatorial combat matches by speaking to the Battlemasters throughout the world
WoW heads rejoice!
