WoW's Patch 5.0.4 Release Notes Now Available

Final pre-Mists of Pandaria content patch delivers a handful of big changes.

World of Warcraft's
final pre-Mists of Pandaria content patch has gone live,
introducing a new World Event (Attack on Theramore Isle) and a host of
fairly significant changes to existing systems. Some noteworthy examples:

  • the majority of earnable Achievements, pets and mounts will be made
    account-wide instead of per-character.
  • area-effect looting, which has been around for a while in other games,
    makes its debut.
  • the slot for relics, ranged and thrown weapons has been removed. Ranged
    weapons have had their damage output increased and their minimum range
    removed to compensate.
  • a new talent tree system
  • all characters now take 40% less damage from other players

A number of players have been experiencing difficulties downloading the patch
and difficulties logging into the game after patching due to server
congestion. Reception to the patch has been mixed.
