Mit dem höchstwahrscheinlich irgendwann in den nächsten Wochen oder Monaten erscheinenden Patch 8.2: Rise of Azshara werden die Entwickler von Blizzard Entertainment unter anderem eine Reihe von neuen Reittieren, Haustieren, Spielzeugen und anderen Schätzen in World of Warcraft implementieren, die daran interessierte Personen dann durch viele unterschiedliche Quellen erhalten können werden.
Damit die Fangemeinde dieses MMORPGs sich schon im Vorfeld ein möglichst gutes Bild von den mit Patch 8.2 kommenden Inhalten dieser Art machen kann, veröffentlichten die Verantwortlichen in der vergangenen Nacht einen neuen Blogeintrag auf ihrer offiziellen Communityseite, der als Vorschau auf diese geplanten Belohnungen fungiert und alle mit dem nächsten Content Update erscheinenden Inhalte aus diesem Bereich auflistet. Wer sich bisher also noch nicht mit den Reittieren, Haustieren oder anderen Schätzen aus Patch 8.2 beschäftigt hat, der möchte vor dem Erscheinen dieses Updates möglicherweise einen Blick auf diese bisher leider nur auf Englisch vorhande Übersicht der Entwickler werfen.   Many New Treasures Await in Rise of Azshara A treasure trove of new mounts, pets, toys, and gear awaits in Rise of Azshara.
