Major World of Warcraft Beta Patch Released
8:25 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released a large new patch for beta testers of the upcoming massively multiplayer online RPG World of Warcraft. Weighing in at over 800MB, this update makes a large number of new game changes, including the addition of the long-awaited Hunter class.

Here's more from the official site:

Hunters are great for pulling monsters as they are able to set traps that hinder monsters that the Hunters pull to attack. Hunters are also able to use various beast-related special abilities, take on bestial traits that allow them to do things that they could not do normally, use a wide variety of ranged attacks complimented by a few melee abilities, and the ability to control and tame beasts.

Hunters are closely related to their pets and must remember to always keep their pet's happiness in mind. When using a pet, Hunters will notice an icon in the top left corner of their screen that depicts their pet's level of happiness. The more Hunters use their pets, the lower their pet's level of happiness will become. Hunters should always remember to feed their pets to raise their pet's level of happiness or worry about their pet abandoning them or even attacking the Hunter! Hunters are also the only class able to name their pets.

For much more on what the patch contains, check out the rest of the long update from Blizzard.

If you're a tester for World of Warcraft, you should get your download going now by connecting via the game client. There's no word yet if Blizzard will be accepting new testers for this latest push, but we'll keep you posted with any news on the topic.
