World of Warcraft prepares more UI improvements and Diablo IV events


There’s a whole lot coming with World of Warcraft’s Update 10.1 early next month, but buried under all of the big ticket items will be smaller — but no less welcome — quality-of-life improvements.

Some of these include continued work on the user interface, which Blizzard greatly overhauled with the Dragonflight pre-patch last year. The new UI options on the way include a scalable minimap, cast bar timers, and moveable pet frames.

Coming shortly after the May 2nd update is the start of the expansion’s second season on May 9th. “Dragonflight Season 2 is coming soon, bringing a new raid, an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons, and a new PvP Season,” said the studio.

And past even that will be a pair of Diablo IV-themed events scheduled near the launch of the ARPG. These events promise treasure goblins to loot and a buff to experience and reputation gain.

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.
