World of Warcraft Patch 4.3 Now Live, Detailed Change-Log Available

World of WarCraft: Cataclysm  - 872529

For the past few weeks Blizzard has opened up public testing realms for the upcoming World of Warcraft: Hour of Twilight patch.  Today, the update has gone live (with the release of a new trailer) and fans can begin experiencing the new changes in patch 4.3.

The massive 4.3 update centers around Thrall and the noble Aspects vanquishing the maddened black Dragon Aspect, Deathwing.  To do so they have devised a plan to destroy him using a weapon of his own design: the i nfamous Dragon Soul.  Unfortunately, the artifact is no longer in existence, so Thrall and the Aspects call upon the Horde and the Alliance to help them retreive the artifact.  It is up to you, if you are brave enough to face the challenge, to embark on a perilous journey from Azeroth'spost apocalypitc End Time to the Dragon SOul's point of origin during the catastropic War of the Ancients.  If you succeed, an even more harrowing battle awaits you in the present...

The cataclysmic World of Warcraft patch 4.3 introduces new features for everyone. 

"From a new raid to unexplored dungeons to the latest story developments to shake the world of Azeroth, this content update introduces a new tier of armor sets, the legendary "Fangs of the Father" rogue quest line, Transmogrification for cosmetic armor and weapon customization, Void Storage as a handy long-term storage option, Raid Finder to make forming pick-up raids easier than ever, and much more."

Battle.net is down right now, as the patch goes live, but you can find all of patch notes on the WoW Wiki.

Some notable changes include:

  • Raid Finder
    • This new grouping feature allows players to quickly and easily form a pick-up raid for a specially tuned version of the current tier of endgame content: the Dragon Soul raid. Raid Finder is now available for testing. Your participation and feedback here is appreciated.
  • Transmogrification
    • This new feature allows players to customize their gear like never before. You'll find Transmogrification, Void Storage, and Reforging vendors in Cathedral Square, Stormwind and The Drag, Orgrimmar. The costs associated with this service are not yet final.
  • Void Storage
    • In addition to the bank, players will now have access to a new "deep storage" system, allowing characters to free bag space by setting aside coveted gear. You'll find Transmogrification, Void Storage, and Reforging vendors in Cathedral Square, Stormwind and The Drag, Orgrimmar. The costs associated with this service are not yet final.
  • Players who use Dungeon Finder for a random Heroic dungeon will no longer be locked to that instance. Previously, players who entered an instance via the Random Dungeon option were then prohibited from queuing for that dungeon or entering the instance manually via the portal. Players should now always be able to complete a specific Heroic dungeon once per day regardless of any random dungeons completed.
