World of Warcraft patch 7.3.5 is live in the wild after extended downtime
Some patches just don’t go down smoothly. World of Warcraft wound up extending its patch time for patch 7.3.5. pretty thoroughly yesterday, with the game’s servers not coming back up until around 8:00 p.m. EST. But they’re back up now, and that means that you can enjoy the patch in its entirety. (Or you can this evening, when you get back from work.) Wowhead has also compiled a full list of the patch’s undocumented changes, which are significant for players looking into enjoying everything that the patch has added into the game.
On the “good news” side of things, there have been notable buffs to the reputation gains for Army of the Light and Argussian Reach reputation, with the weekly faction quests for Argus now rewarding 1000 reputation for both and more opportunities to earn insignias and reputations from world quests. (Since Alliance players need these reputations at exalted for allied races, this is good.) On the bad news side? Older raid bosses have had their health pools increased to the point where some are no longer possible to solo, thus harming players farming these bosses for transmog purposes. That part is suspected to be an error, but regardless, it’s a good list of positive changes for the most part.
