As many of you have already heard, the World of Warcraft servers are due to go down today for a lengthy maintenance period. When the servers finally come back online, players should be able to download the new 4.0.1 update.
You’ll be pleased to know that Blizzard has already given gamers an ETA for when the servers will go offiline. It will commence at 12am PT today, and the downtime will last for 12 hours until 12pm PT, unfortunately.
However, the rewards you’ll get when everything is back to normal are far greater. As Joystiq reports, the update will add significant changes to the class and glyph system, as well as tons of guild tweaks and a new item reforging system should keep WoW gamers busy for some time as well.
The update may become available sooner or later than 12PM PT, these things can never be guessed. The good news however, is that you can check the exact moment when the download is up, by following his handy update page from Twitter. You’ll be able to keep a tab on all the latest WoW updates, so you’ll be able to download it before everyone else.
