World of Warcraft: Patch 3.3.5 Released To North American Players

The long awaited patch for WoW will be dropping today for North American players, but a little bit of disappointment comes with the released patch notes informing players that the ‘Ruby Sanctum’ raid will not be coming just yet.

Along with the update comes ‘Real ID,’ a new feature that instead of having ‘character names’ as friends, you can now communicate with real life friends over any Blizzard game, server or faction, regardless of what character they are logged into.

Back to the Ruby Sanctum, the reason that the raid will not be available just yet is due to the way the patch is being implemented. As the patch is being released a week before the European players get their hands on it, it is thought that it will be made available in around 1-2 weeks time.

Other changes coming with the patch make changes to the chat system, and the ‘vote kick’ system which is a part of the ‘dungeon finder’ feature.

To read the official patch notes, check out WoW.com, or you can view the latest PTR patch notes via the official World of Warcraft patch note page.
