While we still don’t know when World of Warcraft‘s patch 5.3 will hit the servers, Blizzard shared a bit more of what players of the aging MMORPG can expect from the upcoming update.

Four new scenarios will be implemented: The first two are part of the Battlefield Barrens storyline and will be titled Blood in the Snow and Dark Heart of Pandaria. The second pair will send players to babysit a squad of goblins with Secrets of Ragefire and into a full fledged naval engagement with Battle on the High Seas.

In addition to the new scenarios a new heroic mode will be introduced and it will be initially applied to the four new scenarios and two existing ones: Crypt of Forgotten Kings and A Brewing Storm. Only players with an item level over 480 will be allowed to queue for the heroic modes, and success will award them with Raid Finder-quality items in addition to Valor Points.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
