Patch 6.1.2 PTR Patch Notes

If you'd like to help test and provide feedback, you can start by copying your character and downloading the PTR client. Once you've had a chance to try things out, visit our PTR Discussion 6.1.2 forum to discuss the patch. To report issues or errors, use the in-game Submit Bug feature (found under Game Menu -> Help -> Submit Bug) or by visiting the PTR Bug Report 6.1.2 forum.

Introducing the WoW Token
Coming soon to an Azeroth near you: the WoW Token, a new in-game item that allows players to simply and securely exchange gold and game time between each other.

Players will be able to purchase a WoW Token through the in-game Shop for real money, and then sell it on the Auction House for gold at the current market price. When a player buys a WoW Token from the Auction House for gold, the Token becomes Soulbound, and the player can then redeem it for 30 days of game time.

  • The WoW Token feature will be enabled at a future date. Patch 6.1.2 adds in the framework needed for the WoW Token feature in the game client and is not active at this time. In the meantime, check out this FAQ for details on how the feature works.

New World of Warcraft Comic: Blood and Thunder

Envious of the Thunderlord and dismissive of his father’s teachings, Fenris begins a double life. During the day, he will be a tame, obedient Frostwolf… at night, under a different name, he becomes something else entirely.

But Fenris must still bear responsibility for both his actions and those of the “Iron Wolf.”

We invite you to read and download the free comic, “Blood and Thunder,” written by Raphael Ahad and illustrated by Alex Horley.

    Lucky with drops is right, jeesh! Cool cinematic though!
  1. Synros's Avatar
    That cinematic... Excuse me, while I chance my pants, and clean off my screen...

    I have one issue with it though. Why the hell did a second skull randomly appear on Kilrog, after he did that thing?...
  1. Auxis's Avatar
    Oh shit son. OH SHIT SON.

    But he'll probably just be the boss for the next raid tier and thats it.

    So Grom knows about Garrosh being his son. Interesting.

    let me guess, Iron Horde & Horde / Alliance vs Legion finale with Grom dying.
  1. celinamuna's Avatar
    looks like we're getting 3rd tier with garrosh + gul'dan

    OMG! Please! Please let Grom survive this and let him join us as Neutral Hero or Horde Hero in the future! Come on Blizzard! Please! Please Please!

    So Fucking Epic!

    Also, why did Kilrogg have to turn all spiky?? Last time I checked, orcs needed vast amounts of demon blood to turn all red and spiky, not just one gulp.
  1. Beefshack90's Avatar
    That cinematic :O The feels man, the feels! Please let Grommash come to our side and survive this. The look on his face when he learned about Garrosh was heartbreaking.
  1. cptaylor38's Avatar
    Looking like a Grommash redemption plot is sure at this point.
  1. Darksoldierr's Avatar
    Grommash won't join us, hes too much of on the bad side, but i could see him dieing a warrior's death.

    Will WoW have "token hours" like EVE has PLEX hours? You can activate your EVE account for 1 hour just to be able to buy and/or active a game time token on your character. This feature is really a must have.

    You can purchase the token from the character select screen supposedly.

    The orcs won't even be as much a threat as they were. They rampaged Azeroth before with all their war chiefs intact. Now, they are down a 3 or 4 war chiefs. Only thing they got is on-par tech, but they have also lost -thousands- of orcs in the months Azerothian people have been on Draenor, and better still, the draenei -weren't- completely butt-fucked into near oblivion this time around. Them drinking the fel blood won't save them.

    Oh yeah, and two of the orc clans didn't even join the rest of the hostile orcs, and the ogres were also heavily hit. ...and the Sargerei Eredar lord was killed. Yeah, Gul'Dan's little number of fel drunk orcs are good as dead.

    the cinematic is good . but why he didnt turn green?!
  1. Nuvuk's Avatar
    Ok ok who was it that said Grom would not know Garrosh was his son? Was it Blizz or fans or did people ask the question and Blizz just didnt answer? Also it seems Like Blizz is setting up Grom to be a repentant good guy and Gul Dan as the Last raid boss.
