World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.2.0 Now Live!

By Yaris Gutierrez

August 4, 2009

For a couple of week now, players of the MMO World of Warcraft have been impatiently waiting for the release of the new 3.2.0 patch.  How do I know?  Because I’m one of those bastards who’ve been constantly questioning when the hell the patch was going to come.  I’ve even placed a couple of bets with some guildies, for crying out loud, as to when Blizzard was going to finally release the damn thing.  Some speculated mid July, others the ending of July, and a few the beginning of August.  Well, guess what, guildies of mine, I said it was going to be released early August and it happened.  So, someone owes me a couple of thousand gold.

Today, I got up, brushed my teeth and took a shower, turned on my computer and launched the Blizzard downloader.  To my avail, patch 3.2.0 started downloading/installing (for those of you who didn’t download the PTR patch, you’re pretty much screwed) and my toes started tingling.  I checked to make sure it wasn’t diabetes, believe me.

So what does this new patch bring to the table?  Well, for one, new druid forms will be available – meaning that your druid will now have a different look in cat and bear form.  Along with the new forms, new additions such as Epic Gems, new dungeon loot features, the expansion of The Argent Tournament, as well as the completion – finally – of the Crusaders’ Coliseum.  Classes have undergone a couple of nerfing/upgrades and what not, and new Tier 9 gear has come into fruition.  For more on the patch notes, you can check it out here.

If you’re here still reading this, – which your download should have been finished already – you need to close this window, hop on WoW, and start doing some Heroic dungeons in WoTLK.  Why?  Oh, I forgot to mention that instead of Emblems of Heroisms dropping after each boss kill, you’ll be getting Emblems of Conquest – the shit you need to get Ulduar geare’d.  Oooh yea.
