Blizzard Revealed a New Patch Ahead of the Release of its New World of Warcraft Expansion

World of Warcraft is one of Blizzard’s very first games and it has been around for more than a decade now.

Since then, the gaming company has released a lot of content expansion packs, bringing with it new dungeons that promise good loots.

But as the trend goes on, one of those old dungeons do not get attention anymore despite it having a place in the game’s lore and history.

World of Warcraft will have a new expansion pack called “Legion” and it will be released at the end of August.

But, since the new World of Warcraft movie was released, a character and a certain dungeon rose to prominence once again.

The character I am referring to is Medivh. If you’ve seen the movie, Medivh had a pivotal role in the plot and that is why Blizzard wants to do something about it.

In Gamescom 2016, Blizzard released a trailer that is going to be the very first content patch update of Legion. Blizzard is quite adept in naming their content patches and the first content patch is named as “Return to Karazhan”.

If you’re an old World of Warcraft player, Karazhan was actually one of the best dungeons in the game because of its loot and, of course, the bosses that are inside the said dungeon.

Now, before, Karazhan was a 10-man raid but the new patch will turn it into a 5-man raid instead. But, do not worry, Blizzard has promised to widen the scope of the dungeon so players can explore more of the place.

Also, the new Karazhan will now feature 9 unique bosses with new and improved loot so that players will have a new experience when revisiting this old dungeon.

Medivh will also have a role in the new content patch as he was showcased in the trailer that was revealed shortly after the announcement.

To properly introduce the game and to entice players to actually explore Karazhan, Blizzard will be unlocking new quests to help people enjoy their stay in the dungeon.

This is also to help players know something more about Karazhan and Medivh and so that they can understand his role in the Warcraft lore.

Many are surprised that Blizzard has already announced the next content patch of the game when Legion hasn’t even been released yet.

I think that Blizzard won fans over because of their forward thinking. I mean, they are already hyping things up and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next expansion pack.

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since high school and although I was playing on and off after the Cataclysm patch, I still love the game because of its mechanics and, of course, its lore.

World of Warcraft: Legion will be released on August 30, 2016, and its new content patch, “Return to Karazhan” still doesn’t have a fixed release date. So if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, now is the best time to do so!
