The 6.0.2 prepatch has now launched! Feel lost? Have no fear, Moudi is here. I thought of making a list of what these changes are so you don’t feel lost when you log on. These changes is a taste of what will come when the expansion Warlords of Draenor comes out 13th November. So sit back relax and enjoy! Will be hard to relax thou, you will get uber excited!
The Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands has turned blood red. Hundreds of strange-looking orcs are violently pouring into Azeroth, killing everything that stands in their path. Nethergarde and Okril’lon have already fallen, and while the Horde and the Alliance moved as quickly as they could to get reinforcements to their people, they are too late. The Iron Horde invasion has begun.
In this desperate hour, King Wrynn and Warchief Vol’jin have called upon their greatest champions to join the front lines in the Blasted Lands and do whatever they can to stop the Iron Horde . . . before the rest of Azeroth falls before them.
So, when we log on they will ask for our help in blasted lands and that’s where the Quest story line starts! It’s around 20 quests in which we have push back the iron Horde and investigate what the hell is going on.
Even thou most of the Iron Horde are in blasted lands, an advance party of Iron Horde forces has barged right out of the Blasted Lands and pushed all the way to Blackrock Mountain, where they found refuge and supplies in Upper Blackrock Spire. Words are also that the Iron Horde making a doomsday weapon there! This calls for one response only: WE must enter Blackrock Mountain kick their asses and stop them from making this weapon.

So not only a quest line of 20 quests, there will also be (for a limited of time) a new dungeon, called Upper Blackrock Spire. This is a 5 man dungeon that will drop 550ilvl gear something between flex and normal gear today. The dungeon consist of 5 bosses, and you can find info and a guide to this dungeon here!
At last Blizzard have fixed the character models and they look awesome! All characters have new looks. Even the new ones such as goblins and worgens. But the new ones have just been fine-tuned. The new character models will launch at this patch! I recommend looking at them all. On interphase options will be able to switch between the old character models and the new ones. Blizz made this option just so you can see how big the differences are.
All classes have been changed when it comes to talents, some glyphs, and specs. It will be released in this patch! So you will have a month approximately to try out the new class changes before WoD launces and then you will probably get used to the changes and prepared to kick ass!
Blizzard decided to do some major changes here. And I think it’s because some people abused the system. So:
All guilds will essentially be level 25.
Cash Flow will be taken away. But Blizz will compensate this buy adding more BoE items in raid that the guild can sell.
Some guild Perks will be taken away and the remaining ones are: Mount Up, Hasty Hearth, The Quick and the Dead, Guild Mail, Mobile Banking, Mass Resurrection. So basically the best ones will stay.
At last Blizzard have fixed the annoying parts about your bags. Below you will find what will be changed already in this patch!
- We will have an extra Void storage tab!
- We will also get a new tab in the bank that are only for reagents!
- Crafting materials stacks up to 200, up from 20.
- Quest items does not take bag space anymore!
- There is a “Clean up bags” option that will sort your items in the bags so that all free bag space will be in one place.
All items will be stat squished. Meaning we won’t see 128938 dmg on a spell anymore. We will see lower numbers for visual purposes. Have no fear! The changes will not make your sucky. It will feel like that in the beginning but trust me, it’s overall mathematically squished. Ypu will be as powerful!
Hit and expertise will be removed already in this patch. Wohoo! The items that have this today are just converted to haste, crit and mastery. But that doesn’t mean u can hit a guy 20 levels higher. You will have 100% hit up to 3 levels higher.
Dodge and Parry are removed! Now all players have 0% change to be dodged and 3% chance to be parried. Don’t fear you tanks! You will have extra 3% reduction in chance to be parried.
Spirit is only found on non-armor pieces--necks, rings, cloak, and trinkets.
You can still upgrade Mists of Pandaria epics, even though Valor Points are going away. Each upgrade will take 50 lesser Charms.
Reforging is permanently going away and currently reforged gear will revert to its pre-reforged state.
Many additional item changes are coming in Warlords of Draenor, such as new secondary stats and gear that changes stats based on your spec.
You will have a 100% Heirloom drop from Garrosh for your loot spec if u haven’t got it already!! So you have a month to kick his ass and get it.
LFR is now called Flex
Flex is now called Normal (will be flexible size and scale between 10 and 30 players)
Normal is now called Heroic (will be flexible size and scale between 10 and 30 players)
Heroic is now called Mythic (fixed at 20 players)
Warforged Seal no longer caps at 10
Now you can create or find groups for Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios, Legacy Raids, Arenas, Skirmishes, Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and custom content. Arenas and RBGs will not be available in the 6.0 prepatch as the season will have ended.
To access the Group Finder, just click on the Group Finder button (looks like a green eyeball).
All of these types of premade groups let you start or specify a group, specify a location or instance if applicable, and a Voice Chat system.
Most interestingly, you can require a minimum item level for your group but it cannot be higher than your own.
