World of Warcraft 2.1.0 go live!

The 2.1.0 has go live since 22 May, but there are problems on some realms, making players unable to play right after the patch.

Not to worry, the Blizzard guys are fixing it and all we have to do is wait.

2.1.0 is the most comprehensive single patch released by Blizzard so far. You can expect the patch note to be as long as a thesis (not that long, actually).

Main features of the patch includes the opening of Black Temple, a 25-man raid, which you will face the mighty Illidan as one of the boss. New factions such as Orgi’la, enable Level 70 players to quests and grinding for more rep. Netherdrake quests are available for you to complete, to get the ultimate prize of a epic flying netherdrake mount.

For more information of the 2.1.0 patch, you can proceed to the patch note at World of Warcraft website. It is really too long for me to place it in as an entry.

Ding!! Level 70 in Burning Crusade.

Gawell, a gnome mage character in the World of Warcraft European server, Archimonde (French EU-PvP server) has reached level 70 in less than 2 days of playing time. While many of us are still grinding hard and running through the instances, killing all the elites and bosses with the raid groups, one has reached the top level, with the help of his guild mates.

The first ding of level 70, happened on 4:04 am (CET) on Januar 17, 2007. You can check out the page for the pictures and interviews. The owner of the character is a 24 years old French, named Gullerbone, member of the Millenium guild. He played for 28 hours straight, with his guildmates.

Well, for most of us, the casual gamers, we will take our time and enjoy the the journey of Burning Crusade and the path to Level 70.

World of Warcraft v2.0.5 patch released

For those who are still in dreamland, it’s time to go to the Outland. Burning Crusade is here and the new version of WoW is here too.

Version 2.0.5, the third patch that was released in the weeks before the release of Burning Crusade.

Here is the change log for version 2.0.5.

–  Increased the maximum number of realms that can be listed in the Realm List.
–  Updated the Terms of Use.
–  Created an option to disable UI Acceleration for users of select video cards
experiencing graphical corruption of the User Interface. To use this option,
enter the following line to the Config.wtf file, located in the WTF
subfolder of the game:

Set UIFaster “x”

Where x equals:
0 – This turns off all UI acceleration
1 – For Internal Use Only – DO NOT USE!
2 – Enables partial UI acceleration only.
3 – Enables all UI acceleration.

Example:
Set UIFaster “2”

Note:  For users experiencing graphical corruption of the User Interface,
it is recommended to try option 2 in order to correct the problem.  If
this does not solve the issue, then use option 0 to disable all UI
Acceleration.

This patch focuses mainly on the UI (User Interface) of the game.

Version 2.0.4, which was released days before version 2.0.5, addresses different issues.

Change log for version 2.0.4.

–  Fixed a bug where flags in Arathi Basin could be captured at extremely long
distances.
–  Fixed a bug where players who had set dungeons to Heroic difficulty level
previous to patch 2.0.3 could no longer enter instances.
–  Fixed a bug that was causing multiple LUA errors in the German and French
battlegrounds.
–  Fixed a bug that was causing the promotion of raid members to yield
incorrect results.
–  Fixed a bug where NPC faction changes were not properly affecting quest-
giver exclamation marks.
–  Fixed a bug where changing party options would briefly cause erroneous
information to be displayed in the party options menu.
