World of Warcraft preps the Trading Post, begins the Storm’s Fury event, and tweaks classes in latest patch

Cool out.

Today marks the day when World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is getting its first post-launch patching, and while it might not be teeming with top-flight content, there are still things to look forward to as previous patch notes showcased.

One of the big portions of this patch is the arrival of the Trading Post, which won’t be open until February 1st but is landing as part of the update. In terms of playable content, the patch will also launch the new Storm’s Fury event that tasks players with fighting the Primalists in their own future time, along with an event to celebrate Lunar New Year by honoring the Elders located across the Dragon Isles.

The rest of this patch’s feature set includes a wide variety of class adjustments, the return of the Mage Tower, a laundry list of tweaks for professions, and a bunch of other fixes. Maintenance for this patch is going to run pretty long, with a projected end time of 6:00 p.m. EST, but by then there will be new things to do.

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 unionize and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2023, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
