With the 6.1 patch of World of Warcraft, players were given access to the remodeled Blood Elf race, the heirloom collection tab, Twitter integration, and a few more changes. Noticeably absent from that patch was a traditional content addition like a dungeon, raid, or major feature. With the 6.2 patch for World of Warcraft, players will finally get to enter the Tanaan Jungle, build a shipyard for their garrisons, battle in a new raid, and experience new Bonus Events.
Blizzard developers took the time to detail a few of the upcoming features of 6.2 in a recent blog post. Bonus Events and the Adventure Journal will make a big impact on the player when the patch launches. First up, Blizzard detailed the upcoming Bonus Event system that will run each weekend in World of Warcraft.
"The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of seven different activities, currently scheduled to run from Friday through Monday of each week. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal."
Arena Skirmishes, Apexis, and Pet Battle events are also included in the rotation of Bonus Events while Timewalking was previously detailed by the World of Warcraft developer. As the Inquisitr reported, this feature will let players with higher levels than a specific dungeon still use the dungeon finder tool to enter it. Those players will be scaled down to the appropriate power level while retaining their skills and abilities.
The other feature releasing with 6.2, and detailed by Blizzard, is the Adventure Guide. This feature is described as a "landing page of sorts" for other in-game information from the quest journal, group finder, and more. The journal updates each time it is used by suggesting content based on the character's level, quest progress, as well as many other factors.
"The Adventure Guide suggests content based on a number of factors, such as character level, item level, quest progress, achievements, and more. The Guide is fully interactive, allowing players to accept relevant quests or search for a group via Group Finder with a single click."
