CrunchArcade: WoW Patch 2.4 now live: There's a new island to explore


A day late and several thousand experience points short, I forgot to mention that World of Warcraft Patch 2.4.0 went live yesterday. Compared to the previous release, 2.3.0, this latest upgrade doesn’t seem as significant, though it still adds a decent amount of new content.

There’s a whole new island to explore, for one. The Isle of Quel’Danas, aka Sunwell Isle, which has on it two dungeons for players to explore.

As with most patches, Blizzard has changed the dynamics of the several classes; doesn’t seem to be any nerfs this time around, however.

Also, in a classy move, Blizzard dedicated the patch to the memory of the recently deceased Gary Gygax, largely responsible for Dungeons & Dragons and the inventor, so to speak, of modern role-playing.

Below, my favorite WoW video.

Was this a hoax? I remember thinking it was genius two years ago, long before I started playing. I’ve since stopped playing the game, for the record.
