After spending quite a few months on the test servers, World of Warcraft's long-awaited Tides of Vengeance Update has now finally arrived. It brings with it unique questlines for the Horde and the Alliance, Darkshore as a new Warfront with its own equipment sets and rare bosses, a variety of mounts and toys to collect, greatly improved Island Expeditions, Heritage Armor and unique storylines for both Dwarves and Blood Elves, and the list goes on for a while.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted patch overview. It's not exactly detailed, but it should give you a decent idea of what you're getting yourself into:

From what I've experienced so far, I have to admit that the Tides of Vengeance update is a pretty nice bit of a filler. There's a variety of things to do and plenty of stuff to farm, especially if you love exploring some of the side-content like pet battles given that they have just added the Gnomeregan pet dungeon. With that sort of thing in mind, I do believe the update will help keep players engaged for a couple of weeks, if not months.

For those of you looking for a more substantial boost in challenging content, I'm afraid you'll have to wait for the second raid to open at some point after the holidays. This will also be closely followed by the arrival of Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls, so if you're unsure whether to give Battle for Azeroth another try, waiting for a little while might be a prudent idea. 

Whatever the case may be, you can learn more about Tides of Vengeance, as well as all of the features it brings with it, by visiting the official website. Have fun!
