    Patch 3.3.2 Patch Notes

    Important - Patch 3.3.2 is not this week
    After checking with a few people, I can confirm that Patch 3.3.2 will not be deployed this week. It also means that Season 8 will not start this week either, as the season cannot start without the patch.

    At this point I'm not sure if it means that we will also have to wait one more week to fight the Lich King. It all depends on whether Blizzard wants to release the encounter and the new season on the same day.


    Patch 3.3.2 Patch Notes
    A couple of hours ago the korean patch notes appeared on my forums, I was happily waiting to get an english version but apparently it will be harder than expected.

    I really hate to post that kind of translated notes because the most complicated changes might have translation errors, be careful with them. I'll try to get an english version up as soon as possible.

    However I had the translation double checked and these notes should be fairly accurate, even if Blizzard's version will look nicer.

    Can't wait for the instance changes.
    You face not Malchezaar alone, but the legions he commands.

    New wing for VoA, nice! Something new since Emalon gets tiring after a while.

    So if the patch isn't this week, does this mean there is another gate after Sindragosa that we need to wait on for LK? It doesn't seem like something they'd add to the notes if it was just going to be open when the patch was put out.

    Is the DP buff raid wide? Or the warlock ''self-buff'' ?

    Because if it is raid wide. More QQ for Totem of wrath.

    Blizzard already made a post that stated they intended for LFD leaders to be called "Guides", so "Pathfinder" was a pretty decent translation effort.
    I'm in the "I don't have an obnoxiously large signature" club.

    Yay make it super easy to do the achievements in 5man heroics, I don't even care that they are trivial with the gear we have now, retards still failed but now it is only one add instead of three/four to hold, or one add absorb phase.

    They better seriously make an enormous overhaul on 5man heroics for Cata they have been a complete joke since day one in wrath offering no challenge nor demands in CC, marking, level headed pulling or skill. And every tier they become a faceroll for the previous tiers free gear, free 232 and frosts good job.

    Kind of nice for the patch not to be this week, I mean bad for the pvp'ers ofc because that is your thing and like the pve'ers you need new content to make your playing worthwhile, but VOA boss will be a joke and reward 264 tier which is BS and defeats the objective of killing end wing bosses for tokens to unlock 264.
    "Marking targets, coordinating CC, and *most importantly*, pulling responsibly so that 9 elites didn't rush us and wipe the party.* I'm sorry, but those skills, entirely missing now in WotLK, are the real signs of skill and ability to tank effectively."

    I'm never wrong, and when I am I make sure that there isn't anyone left to talk about it.

    Re: Patch 3.3.2 Patch Notes

    Season 8 not this week is kind of a big joke.
    First time Blizzard has ever had more than a week break in between seasons.

    Sigh, pretty sure a lot of Arena hotheads are going to be upset over this.

    I think that the patch will occur this week but the wing won't be opened until the following week.
    I put my money on Seadon 8 + Toravon this week.
