Patch notes for 6.0.3 Tomorrow, Garrison Missions Calculator, Artcraft: Level Design, New TV Spots
2014/10/27 at 12:04 PM
Patch 6.0.3 Tomorrow --
Read the Patch Notes Below
Blizzard is pushing a patch tomorrow--this does not have any major content updates, but a lot of hotfixes and changes visible on beta realms will be pushed onto live realms.
We’re planning to release a patch tomorrow that will bring the live game up-to-date with the version currently being tested on the beta realms. This includes a number of fixes and changes to address issues we've identified since the release of 6.0.2, as well as remaining assets and content to prepare for the launch of Warlords of Draenor. As we've done in prior expansions, our plan is to not require a launch-day patch, and have a smooth transition to the new expansion in North America at midnight Pacific on November 13.
Garrison Mission Calculator
Garrison missions have some pretty sweet rewards in Warlords, but you only get them if you succeed at completing the mission. Knowing which followers can counter a mission is important, and when you're first starting off, you need to prioritize leveling some followers over others.
We've built a Garrison Missions calculator to help you figure this out. With the calculator, you can plan out what followers to use on missions. Just click on a specific mission via
, insert your preferred follower, their quality, and (if needed) additional abilities/traits from upgrades.
All of the follower's abilities will be displayed and if an ability counters a mission threat, a green checkbox will appear next to it--just like in-game.
We've also given our missions pages like
a bit of a facelift to better resemble what you see in-game with elite portraits, unique ability icons, and more.

Garrison Buildings for Raiding, Pets, Transmog, and More!

This guide will help you decide what buildings to build on your Garrison plots. There are many different choices you can make when it comes to buildings and the below information should help you choose what to build based on what activities you like to do in game--raiding, transmog, PvP, and more!
