4.3s Early Holiday Presents

Posted by Smokimus on December 23, 2011

Patch 4.3 has provided nothing but goodness to Azeroth:

  • Raid Finder– It’s all win. Yes, it is essentially a 25 person heroic dungeon and that is what it is designed to be. It is a way for almost any character to experience the end game content and upgrade their gear. It has allowed the guild that I’m in to experience raiding content for the first time since January and have a much better experience doing so.
  • Transmogrification
    – Again, this is all win. If you don’t like the way a new armor set looks you are free to find one that better suits your tastes. Except for some minor interface hiccups, I can think of nothing but positive things coming from this.
  • End Time, Well of Eternity, Hour of Twilight – These are the dungeons you are looking for. The 4.3 dungeons are what the rest of Cataclysm dungeons should have been. They are quick and easy loot piñatas that I don’t mind running over and over on multiple alts.
  • Dragon Soul
    – I’m sure it’s nice. I’ve heard a few good things about it and most of the complaints are that it is too easy. I won’t likely be able to experience the normal or heroic versions. I like the RF version and I hope that those people who want a challenge are able to find it in the heroic versions of the raid. Hard core raiders are people too.
  • Darkmoon Faire – New mounts, pets, and cosmetic gear. Fun games and a new set-up that allows you to do the faire one week of every month. Only improvement that I would make is to speed up the acquisition of tickets.

Patch 4.3 was clearly the most content of the expansion and all of it has been excellent thus far. I only hope that Mists comes out before next fall.

What say you?
