Patch 6.0.2: The Iron Tide Crashes into Azeroth October 14
Less than a week remains to finish everything that is changing in Patch 6.0.2!

Featuring new content heralding the Iron Horde incursion, updates to the skills and abilities for every class, and a host of gameplay adjustments, this overture to Warlords of Draenor is coming at you armed to the teeth.

Treacherous Developments
The Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands has turned blood red. Hundreds of strange-looking orcs are violently pouring into Azeroth, killing everything that stands in their path. Nethergarde and Okril’lon have already fallen, and while the Horde and the Alliance moved as quickly as they could to get reinforcements to their people, they are too late. The Iron Horde invasion has begun.

In this desperate hour, King Wrynn and Warchief Vol’jin have called upon their greatest champions to join the front lines in the Blasted Lands and do whatever they can to stop the Iron Horde . . . before the rest of Azeroth falls before them.

Word of this surprise attack sends players rushing to the Blasted Lands to reckon with the barbarous infiltration. After the fall of a high ranking Iron Horde general named Gar’mak Bladetwist, you’ll report what you’ve witnessed in the Blasted Lands to King Wrynn or Warchief Vol’jin. It’s apparent to both the Horde and the Alliance that this is only the first salvo in a much larger conflict, and the only way to win is to take the fight directly to the Iron Horde . . . by journeying through the Dark Portal into Draenor.

The Infiltration of Blackrock Spire
An advance party of Iron Horde forces has barged right out of the Blasted Lands and pushed all the way to Blackrock Mountain, where they found refuge and supplies in Upper Blackrock Spire. There can be only one response: the Alliance and the Horde of Azeroth must face this iron incursion head on.

Available to level-90 characters for a limited time, this specially revamped five-player version of Upper Blackrock Spire sets the stage for the coming counterstrike against the Iron Horde. Here, you will face Orebender Gor'ashan, Kyrak, and Commander Tharbek as you begin to take the fight to the enemy and sharpen the skills—and swords—you’ll need to succeed on an unwelcoming alien world.

Prepare yourself. Draenor is waiting.

    As expected. Quick, what are some things people need to do before 6.0? At least I managed to level a warlock and get green fire.

    Yessssss

    The UBRS is limited though? I thought that was going to be available all through WoD. Or is there an 100 version later on, like the Theramore scenario was first available to 85 and later to 90.

    This is a time limited level 90 version of UBRS for the launch event; once WOD launches, it'll be gone and will be replaced with the level 100 version.

    Anwyays, nice to finally know we will have some new content in a few days. The long drought is finally coming to an end!

    Get your Garry normal kills while you can if you haven't, as well as the lock Green Fire quest if you want the title!

    Any takers how long the game will be unplayable on Tuesday until everything's fixed up? :P I'm going to guess they will extended Maintenance twice! :þ

    It's like the Theramore scenario. It will be available at level 90 until Warlords drops in a month, then it'll go back to being level 100 Heroic

    Man, 6.0 will bring like no content at all, you will have time to check out new talents and spells maybe but thats it, it will get you busy for couple of days maybe tops, you will have 3 weeks for Borderlands at least, good enough for 1 walkthrough before WoD, cant wait for it my self

    I can't believe they are going live with the current state of the new models. Ah well, disappointed with 'em, here's hoping for the gameplay of WoD to be good at least.
