The Pandas Are Coming: Blizzard’s Patch 5.0.4 Survival Guide

Next week’s uber game-changing WoW patch drops, ruining your Tuesday and changing WoW as we know it. The new talent trees will be implemented, massive amounts of glyph, class and quality of life changes are incoming and not to mention the roll-out of cross-realm zones. This isn’t your grandpa’s WoW (whatever that means!)

Blizzard has been so kind as to post a Patch 5.0.4 Survival Guide. I will post a couple juicy tidbits but you have to click here for the entire post. The pandas are coming!

  • Cross-Realm Zones. We’ll be rolling this feature out beginning with a few realms at the launch of 5.0.4, and increasing until all realms are included for the release of Mists of Pandaria. If you’re looking to level a new character up before Mists of Pandaria, this feature will have a noticeable impact on the world around you.
  • AoE looting! Round up a ton of enemies, nuke ‘em, and then pick up all of their loot with a single right click – bag space permitting.
  • The Daily Quest cap is removed. While this will truly shine in Mists of Pandaria with far more robust daily quests, you can certainly take advantage of it before then.
  • Account-wide mounts, pets, and achievements! It’s finally here, and you’ll be able to enjoy just about every mount and pet you own on any character, and any license, under a single Battle.net account. You can also work on a wide variety of Achievements from multiple characters. Please be aware of the rules and guidelines we’ve just posted for how you can coalesce your account-wide pets and mounts smoothly and safely.
  • The new talent system redefines how you create your character in World of Warcraft, while keeping the core style and feeling of each class and specialization intact. When launching the patch for the first time and hitting ‘N’ to open your talent pane, you’ll notice a number of changes. The most obvious is a new layout for specializations, which now show the Core Abilities for each class spec. These are the defining skills that can only be used when you have that spec active.

Man, I haven’t been this excited for WoW in a long time.
