World of Warcraft Hits v1.6
9:30 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Blizzard's popular MMORPG World of Warcraft has received yet another large update, bringing it to version 1.6. The version bump contains a large number of tweaks and additions, including class-specific adjustments, user interface changes, and the new areas Darkfaire and Blackwing Lair.

Also included are some Mac-specific tweaks:

  • Some optimizations for terrain loading and rendering were added for the Macintosh build.
  • Enabled multisample support in the video options.
  • Fixed an issue where inspecting crafted items on other users could potentially show attributes that those items did not have.
  • Updated the Mac sound code to use memory more efficiently.
  • Fixed a Mac issue which caused some sounds to become slightly quieter after taking a gryphon ride.
The full list of patch changes can be found at the official WoW site. The update itself can be downloaded automatically by logging into WoW.
