Blizzard have launched a minisite for World of Warcraft’s next patch, Fury of the Sunwell. It’s a top-end patch for you level 70s who have run out of things to do in the Outlands.
“Now the journey that began with the arrival of the draenei on Azeroth and the blood elves’ inclusion into the Horde is about to come full circle as a mighty army gathers to purge evil from one of Azeroth’s most important loci of power: the ancient, magical Sunwell.”
So Sunwell Isle is your new location, which you can read all about here. There’s a new faction in there, the Shattered Sun Offensive, as well as at least twelve more daily quests (the patch also ups the daily quest limit to 25), and a brand new five-person dungeon, Magisters’ Terrace. There’s also new 25-player instance, Sunwell Plateau, which will involve the murderising of Kil’Jaeden. Also, you’ll be able to create your own level 70 characters complete with epic equipment for competing in the Global Arena Tournament. There’s a trailer at the Blizzard site, that we’ll put here as soon as we can find the bloody embed code. (Dear Game Makers, Making it impossible for us to post your adverts is incredibly silly. Love, RPS).
So, everyone immediately start complaining that Blizzard are dumbing it down and making it too easy for people to have fun in their game without giving up their entire lives to raid for 9000 hours a week.
