Patch 4.3 World Map and Minimap Improvements
The world map and mini-map got a couple of upgrades on test realms and they should be slightly more useful after the patch, hopefully we will see it on live servers soon.

  • The minimap has an improved menu and will let you track a couple more things, including archaeology and questing areas.
  • You can now track areas on your minimap, archaeology sites and quest objectives areas will now be displayed directly on the minimap!
  • The world map now (finally) shows the level of regions on mouseover.

Patch 4.3 - Priest Glyph of Shadow
Priests are getting a new minor Glyph in patch 4.3, the Glyph of Shadow! As mentioned during Blizzcon, this glyph changes the alpha of your character and lets you see most of your equipment while in Shadow Form.

Patch 4.3 - Divine Aegis Animation
While we're talking about priests, here is a video preview of the new effect on Divine Aegis.

Patch 4.3 - Hurricane Animation
Druids also got some more tweaking to the new Hurricane animation. Don't forget about the other animation updates:

Comics: Dark Legacy and Teh Gladiators
Dark Legacy Comics #310 and Teh Gladiators #284 + #285 are available!

The MMO Report did a nice Blizzcon special this week, with a quick overview of all we learned.

    YES YES YES YES. Finally new Divine Aegis SE!!!!! So glad to see that back. Did a good job on the new Shadow priest glyph too, can see gear now!

    So many people can't see the difference between the old and new Aegis. Here is the old:

    Note: Yes, this is triggered off a bug. But that is the OLD Spell Effect regardless.

    Main difference:

    New - Just the original after-bubble that pops up
    Old - Wicked animation that leads up to the bubble with added border effect on the actual bubble

    The change to hurricane looks cool. The glyphed shadow form is still a little meh. Will go for the glyph though so i can see my priest in T6.

    Why do you keep posting the previous week's DLC rather than the current week's? You've done this the past several Sundays - he usually doesn't update until later in the evening.

    Unless he already had enough infractions for a ban, which i think he did.

    I like the map changes, but the priest changes dont affect me much.

    Shadowform change was needed for sure so was the arch sites on the mini map.
