Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. There's a buzz in the air, as patch 5.4 enters its final tuning phase. Could the patch be dropping soon? Could it be dropping today? Alas, today is unlikely, as downtime this morning is just the standard 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. PDT, but it does seem like we're entering the home stretch. I'm guessing we'll have to wait until early September myself, but my crystal ball's always been a bit cloudy.
In the meantime, just because we're in the tuning phase doesn't mean Blizzard's slowing down. There's still new updates coming every week, and we're still delving and reporting all the best stuff. You have a few hours free thanks to this morning's downtime, right? Go ahead and read on for all the latest news from the past week.
