Patch 2.4 draws closer every day. Many players were speculating that it was going to be released yesterday (March 18, 2008). Blizzard has promised that the patch is coming soon and the background downloader has appeared. My best guest is that we'll be visiting Sunwell Isle on March 25, 2008.

The day that patch 2.3 was released I attempted to rush home from work to check out the new changes, but was thwarted by cross-town traffic. There are some things that I'm excited about for in the newest patch, but I'm not nearly as stoked as I was for the last major update. I try to keep in mind that what we've seen so far on the Public Test Realm is not the final product for the patch, but it gives us a pretty good indication of what's coming.

Some players have vowed to retire from WoW, at until the release of Wrath of the Lich King. Then again, patch 2.3 had its naysayers, but did not destroy the World of Warcraft as some predicted. For better or for worse, there will be adjustments. Some of us will be happier than others, I've made the decision to embrace change. Patches help keep the game new and interesting.

Amid the buffs, nerfs, new content, and item updates, how do you feel about the Fury of the Sunwell patch? Is there anything your anxiously anticipating or dreading?
