World of Warcraft's Kil'Jaeden

Despite being hailed as "the biggest update World of Warcraft has ever seen" the Broken Shore and its surrounding content ended up being nothing more than a bunch of extremely easy quests to endlessly grind. Given the massive lack of polish many started speculating that the entire update was released as a simple diversion, a way to keep the playerbase interested while Blizzard finishes work on the 'real' update.

Whether that is true or not, I highly doubt we'll ever find out, but what I do know is that World of Warcraft's Update 7.3 is exactly what the Broken Shore should've been. It brings with it an entirely new planet to explore, new world quests and profession updates, more ways to customize our weapons, a new dungeon and raid, as well as Invasion Points which are a new type of replayable content that lets us invade Legion worlds in search of booty.

While all of the above definitely sounds like a ton of content, its only the tip of the iceberg. If you would like to learn more you should head over to the WoW forums, though don't expect to see much in terms of details given that the update is still in testing. That said, if you don't mind spoilers and would love to get a bit of a sneak peek at some of the new content and disgusting mounts, you'll find what you seek on MMO Champion.

The final addition worth mentioning are all of the new and improved casting animations for Restoration Druids, Elemental and Restoration Shamans, Discipline and Holy Priests, and all three Mage specializations (and yes, that includes Arcane Missiles as well). Shadow Priests will also be getting brand new animations, though they haven't been finished just yet. So if you're a caster feel free to celebrate, you won't be wildly flailing your arms anymore!

Update 7.3 is already live on the PTR (Public Test Realm), so if you're eager to give any of these new additions a shot you can do so right now. Have fun, and here's an image of the most bizarre mount you'll ever see:
