Blizzard posts patch notes for World of Warcraft patch 9.2.5 with cross-faction grouping

This looks... boring.

We mentioned recently that World of Warcraft’s newest build of patch 9.2.5 on the test servers was flagged as a release candidate. Turns out there’s a good reason for that, as the game has clearly been preparing for what’s happening now with the patch notes being available to read in full. With the patch not due until May 31st, you’ve got a little time to wait until you can actually explore the features of this interquel patch, but you won’t have to wait too much longer to start forming cross-faction groups.

Yes, if you’d missed it, that is indeed happening with this particular patch. Cross-faction grouping will start being a thing, along with new questlines for Blood Elves and Dark Iron Dwarves seeking race-specific appearances, new 100% drops for Renown from certain activities, and other quality of life improvements. Check out the full patch notes for all of the changes, and get ready to start partying with Orcs and Humans on May 31st. (Unless you really want to hold on to old entirely fictional grudges, in which case… uh… you do you, we guess.)

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees strike and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
