WoW Patch 6.2 Preview

When the features were announced for Patch 6.1 many players were quick to call out the lack of new content. While 6.1 included many updates including the new Heirloom collection system, it offered little in the way of new playable content to explore. Patch 6.2 has recently hit the public test realm and man does it make up for what 6.1 was thin on. Let’s look at some of the major new features that are on the way.

The WoW Token and Blackrock So Far

This week we have a look-see at how the WoW Token is doing so far and I offer my opinion on the first two wings of the Blackrock Mountain Adventure.
