Game Front’s Quick Guide to WoW Patch 5.4
For non-raiding content, Blizzard is taking a different tack with the introduction of the Timeless Isle. Instead of creating a number of linear quests directing players gradually through different regions, they are trying for an open-world adventure.
Quest givers encourage players to discover and explore instead of “go here, kill 10 of these at this exact location, and come back for this specific reward.” Roaming the island will present the players with many things to battle and all drop various items as loot including tokens granting you armor specific to your class and specialization. There is content for PvP players, raiders who want to take down world bosses, pet battle players and more.
But wait! There’s more!
On top of all this content, there’s also a new pet battle epic scenario, a solo arena where you can test your skills as a damage dealer, tank or healer and new crossrealm technology that links low population servers together to seamlessly form one large community. And what’s a major patch without significant class rebalancing?
All of this sound enticing, but haven’t logged in since Pandaria launched last year? Check out Blizzard’s suggestions on how to gear up quickly to take on the new 5.4 raid content. But don’t rip through all this too quick. It’s a long road ahead to WoW’s fifth expansion.
