Wow Patch 1.8.1 released

A small patch was released by Blizzard addressing few Battlegrounds and User Interface issues.  Those expecting patch 1.9 will have to wait.  Blizzard recently announced that the new patch that will introduce Ahn’Qiraj instance for 20 players and 40 players raids will take a bit longer than usual to be released.  In the mean time, below you have minor fixes added to patch 1.8.

Tigole (Quest Designer Jeff Kaplan)
“We’re busy working on Patch 1.9. Patch 1.9 is going to be one of our biggest content updates to date featuring not one, but two raid zones. The Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj (20 person raid zone) will be on par with Zul’Gurub in difficulty, perhaps slightly harder (but not by much). The Temple of Ahn’Qiraj (40 person raid zone) is absolutely massive, and will be around the same difficulty level of Blackwing Lair. Some of the earlier monsters in the 40 person area might be slightly easier than BWL but as guilds progress to the end, they’ll find a zone on par with BWL.

We’re also hard at work on a pretty epic world event that will lead to the opening of the gates of Ahn’Qiraj. More information will be coming out about this from our community team in the near future. Needless to say, it’s going to be cool =].

Because of the sheer scope of what we’re going to include in 1.9.0 the development cycle might take slightly longer than the 1.8.0 cycle”
