WoW: 3.0.2 Patch

This is a pretty huge patch for World of Warcraft in advance of the release of Wrath of the Lich King (November 11th13th) that has got me a little excited for WoW again. Anna and I are some of the most casual players in existence (I still don't have even a level 50 character in several years of subscribing), so the expansion itself doesn't mean much to us right now... but what's nice is that Blizzard upgraded/changed tons of things about the general play experience that you get access to, even without buying the expansion.

Things like:

  • A barber shop to change your appearance

  • XBOX 360-style Achievements

  • A new profession: Inscription

  • A new calendar feature showing you all the holidays and your guild events, etc.

  • New 51 point talents and re-balancing of every class

Nothing earth-shattering really, but a good reason to get back into it and see what's going on.
