Patch 3.1 and beyond, a look at what's after Wrath

Looking for the latest patch 3.1 information? Check out WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1!

We've got the hot pre-Wrath patch 3.0.2 coming soon, with the much-anticipated Wrath of the Lich King storming along in mid-November. But the game doesn't stop there. Blizzard's already planning for the time after Arthas stomps his kicky, icy little boots into Northrend. The big-MVP-on-campus Schwick has already started building his "what we know" thread for 3.1 and beyond.

I'll grant that what we know right now is a little slim, and doesn't include the myriad of buffs and nerfs we should expect after the expansion. Schwick -- and WoW Insider -- will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

For now, after Wrath releases, we're already expecting:

  • Icecrown Citadel -- A raid instance for groups to explore, this will be released after Wrath's initial live date.
  • A built-in Outfitter -- The ability to organize your gear in convenient, logical, and easy-to-swap functionality. Now you're in tank gear, and then one second later, now you're in DPS gear!
  • Guild Bank upgrades -- Better controls and organization for the often-ninja-plagued Guild banks.
  • Personally customized tabards -- The ability to create your own, personal tabard.

Of course, there's a lot of stuff on the "to-do" list that isn't necessarily going to be put in 3.1. Dance studios, cross-server chat functions, and account-based achievements, to name a few.
