On this day, April 14, 2009, thirteen years ago, World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King: Patch 3.1:
Secrets of Ulduar
New Raid: Ulduar
Since discovering Ulduar in the Storm Peaks, adventurers have journeyed to the titan city to learn more about its mysterious past. Further exploration has revealed that the magnificent complex is above all a prison, intended to permanently confine the Old God of death, Yogg-Saron. This ancient horror has corrupted its guards, and now it is breaking through the last of its restraints. Faced with the peril of Yogg-Saron's imminent freedom, a band of mortals has made preparations for a sweeping assault on the city. Overcoming the legions of iron minions and towering defenses at the city's entrance will take tremendous strength, but even that great victory may not be enough to overcome the madness that dwells below.
Ulduar is often remembered as on of the most epic experiences in World of Warcraft. A massive 14 boss instance with memorable and challenging encounters, exquisite and innovative design, and music that evoked both the grandeur of the Titans and the terror of the Old Gods, Ulduar was highly anticipated and did not disappoint. The raid featured both 10 and 25 person modes, and hard modes that could be triggered within the instance, as well as
that could drop to allow for the reconstruction of the Legendary

New End Game Zone: The Argent Tournament
The Argent Tournament Begins!
As the might of the Scourge wanes under the pressure of Azeroth’s heroes, the Argent Crusade have taken a foothold in Arthas’s back yard. Off the northeastern coast of Icecrown, the Argent Crusade have sounded the call for the most bold and brave adventurers of the Horde and Alliance to take part in the Argent Tournament. Representatives of all ten faction capitals, from Undercity to Exodar, have traveled to the tournament grounds to find champions among their heroes who will prepare for the inevitable battle against the enemy of all living beings, the Lich King.
The world is being threatened by its greatest foe, armies of undead tromp across the continent, an Old God awakes in a prison that no longer contains it, a Celestial being is ready to Ctl-Alt-Del the whole planet, and the factions of Azeroth are ... going to the Superbowl?
end game quest hub offered dailies, rep grinds, mounts and more to be earned, and jousting - what could possibly go wrong...?
On a more somber note, this patch was dedicated to Dave Arneson, the co-creator (with Gary Gygax) of
Dungeons & Dragons
. Without a doubt, this man influenced the life of every single one of us.
