wow New Warcraft 3 Patch on 15th March!

16452-new-warcraft-3-patch-on-15th-march

That's right! It looks like the classic that many of us played prior to World of Warcraft is going to be getting a new patch next week!

 

This update seems to be coming in a wave of revisits being made to the older games of Blizzard. It was recently announced that Diablo II also had a patch incoming, so it will be exciting to see where this goes. Currently, we know very little about the content of the patch. A video was released in which Robert Bridenbecker spoke to the Chinese Warcraft 3 community. You can check it out below:

 

 

A platform was introduced in China, NetEase, which allowed features such as matchmaking and new levels of communication. This is the "platform" that he refers to at the start of the video. He goes on to discuss that a new patch will be released for the whole global community, regardless of region, on 15th March. 

 

The speculations in regards to content so far include:

  • Battle.net functionality
  • Updated graphics
  • New missions or content

Regardless of what it is, I'm extremely excited. Let's pray it's something good! You can check out the Reddit thread for further speculation and discussion!

Must admit I would love to play some games across battle.net friends.

 

Funnily enough I started playing the Frozen Throne campaign again a few months back.  Still brings back fond memories!

 Yeah I'd definitely welcome the return of older Blizzard games to the Battle.net client. I know so many people that basically won't play the games because they have to install/use them outside of the client. It's a bit silly, but if it gets more people playing, I'm all for it.

The cinematics will never stop causing me to geek out, they will always be awesome!

Pretty sure I found the old game cases with the manuals / CD Keys in and just downloaded the actual game from from battle.net.  Amazed I still had the cases to be honest!

      A reddit user shared some highlights of his exploration of Vanilla, TBC and WotLK using a variety of tricks.
       
      A lot of us who've played Vanilla at some point went and visited Hyal by suiciding through the inactive raid portal, but there were other ways to creatively explore the world around as well. Redditor jarrodnb recently remembered his time in TBC/early WotLK and how he would use the jump bug (where you wouldn't fall off a slope, regardless of how steep it was, if you timed it just right), among other things, to take a look at some of the less often seen vistas and quite a few secrets hidden away behind terrain (remember, at the time you could only fly in Outland, so a lot of these vantage points may seem normal to you, but were very special back then).
      There's a whole album of his exploits (both in the "game breaking" and  the "interesting things he did" sense) and you should really give it a look, as it has interesting comments about the zones and how he got there and plays out like one big story. Here are some highlights:

      "I had always wondered where Nightbane was before he flew onto the balcony"

      "Next up, I had heard about the early "outland" hidden away in VC."

      "Looks like an early version of Howling Fjord is tucked away inside UK. I can't believe how many secrets are hidden away inside the instanced versions of dungeons"

      "I eventually worked up the courage to actually explore GM island, so I busted out my old "bridge" file. One of my "mates" said in "type /who gm island" in trade chat, I was spammed with randoms asking how I got there. I quickly logged off in terror."
       
      Big thanks to jarrodnb for sharing (part of) his exploration journey and reminding us of our own exploration attempts (even if it was just swimming around the edges of the continents)!

      Patch 7.1.5 brings new Artifact Knowledge catch-up options for both mains and alts.
      We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.
      The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.
      Main Characters
      A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Bloods of Sargeras.

      Alts
      Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.
      Artifact Research Compendium: Volume I Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-III Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).
