New WoW Patch Available
7:54 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Blizzard has recently released a new patch for the ongoing beta test of World of Warcraft. Termed the Beta 6 build, this latest patch introduces several notable changes, including a new model/animation system, and new talents for the Warlock class.
There have been extensive changes made to the model and animation system in order to increase performance while playing in densely populated areas (such as cities and PvP encounters). Specifically, we have added hardware vertex shader support and a hardware cursor for those cards that support it.The third notable addition includes some interesting new looting options, including a "Need Before Greed" option that causes players who cannot use a given item to automatically pass on it.
A host of other minor changes have also been implemented. The full list can be found at Blizzard's World of Warcraft Community site.
