The next, and one of the largest patches in a couple of years, for World of Warcraft is set to debut across all servers on Tuesday, September 10th. It is bringing some massive changes to the world, things players need to know. Check out our latest WoW Factor to find out what you need to know for 5.4. Head to the forums afterward to discuss your expectations for the patch.
If you watched the trailer for the Siege of Orgrimmar, you’re aware of how radically the Vale of Eternal Blossoms will change. As seen in the trailer, Garrosh’s Goblin dig team discovered an ancient artifact buried deep beneath the Vale, the heart of Y’shaarj, which provoked the defacement of the Vale (I recommend level 90 characters partake in the Dark Heart of Pandaria scenario if you haven’t already to participate in this discovery). When the patch goes live, the Vale of Eternal Blossoms will be renamed to the Vale of Eternal Sorrows as a majority of it has now become Sha infested. The quest achievement Eternally in the Vale is being removed along with all the related quests. However, all achievements tied to daily quests are still available.
