Blizzard Entertainment Releases Preview of Upcoming Patch 10.0.5 for World of Warcraft

Just days before the release of the next content update for World of Warcraft, Blizzard has published the patch notes for Patch 10.0.5. This update arrives approximately two months after the unveiling of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, the ninth edition of the ever-popular MMORPG.

As a yearly occurrence, World of Warcraft recently unveiled the “Jade, Bright Foreseer” rabbit mount to commemorate the Chinese New Year. Furthermore, the Lunar Festival, based on the same holiday, is set to make its comeback in Patch 10.0.5. Blizzard’s 2023 roadmap for World of Warcraft also has plans to possibly bring additional updates to holidays in Patch 10.0.7 in the springtime.

On Tuesday, January 24, World of Warcraft Patch 10.0.5 will be released. Before the launch of the patch, Blizzard revealed a list of items that will be included in the update, including adjustments to various classes and specializations. Balance and Guardian Druids have had their talent trees redesigned, with some talents being changed in point cost and some being eliminated from certain specializations. There have also been major alterations to the talent trees of other specializations such as Discipline Priest, Brewmaster Monk, and Mistweaver Monk. Moreover, alterations were made to War Mode, Solo Shuffle, and crafting and gathering professions. This link has the full patch notes.

World of Warcraft Patch Notes 10.0.5

Patch 10.0.5 of World of Warcraft will bring about the new Trading Post feature. This enables players to collect a currency, called Trader’s Tenders, that can be used to purchase cosmetics otherwise difficult to obtain. Gamers can gain up to 1000 of these tokens each month, 500 from payment of their subscription and the other 500 from the Trading Log. This log has been likened to the Challenge Log in Final Fantasy 14, or a battle pass in F2P titles such as Overwatch 2. It will have tasks such as daily quests, raids, dungeons, PvP, and crafting, with new themes each month. Additionally, a new event, The Storm’s Fury, will be available with its rewards.

Moreover, when Patch 10.0.5 is released, further changes will be implemented to the World of Warcraft user interface. For instance, the experience and reputation bars, the micro menu, and inventory bags will be adjustable in size and position. With these features and additional updates to come, World of Warcraft is expected to remain popular in 2023.

World of Warcraft is available on the PC platform.
