Blizzard сообщила об открытии европейских тестовых серверов и представила обновлённый перечень изменений заплатки 3.0.8. К сожалению, русское описание патча осталось старым, поэтому о добавлениях можно узнать только на английском.
Почти все сегодняшние новшества коснулись классов, однако два пункта относятся к ремесленным профессиям: кузнецы получили рецепты создания двуручного танкового оружия Titansteel Defender и Titansteel Deflector, а инженеры научились изготавливать очки Unbreakable Healing Amplifiers.
