World of Warcraft Patch 6.1 Now Live: Bug Fixes, New Blood Elf Character Models, Talent Balance, And More

WoW fans, get ready for a huge update that has been a long time coming. Warlords of Draenor, the expansion to World of Warcraft was updated on Tuesday and gave the game a whole slew of changes and tweaks that will be refreshing for old and new gamers alike.

Blizzard gives a very detailed rundown of all the updates in Patch 6.1 which went live on Feb. 24 after a few hours of downtime for the game. The 2.8GB update was worth the wait for many gamers; especially those who were already growing bored with the game and felt that it needed some sprucing up.

Among the many fixes in the patch, the long overdue issue related to mouse or lag, making the game go haywire and causing irritating bugs like suddenly shifting camera angles, mistargeted healing spells, and characters suddenly turning when you don’t want them to, were finally addressed.

Other additions include a selfie cam; new daily visitors to your garrison who will offer bounty, relic, dungeon, and weekly raid quests; new pets to collect by beating bosses in different locations; and a new Platinum reward level for garrison invasions; among many other game tweaks.

Players can now also complete a mission to create their own jukebox and expand their collection of songs to play on it by collecting Music Rolls in the game.

More exciting Blood Elf character model changes were also introduced with the patch which both male and female characters were given subtle enhancements here and there to give them a new makeover without losing their iconic looks.

“The Blood Elves bring a bit of subtlety to the Horde, and I think that was one of the most important aspects of the Blood Elves to maintain,” said senior artist Dusty Nolting.

With such a huge array of updates and additions introduced to this hefty patch, the World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor definitely was given a much-needed breathe of fresh air to keep old fans coming back and get new gamers interested in playing.
