The complete patch announcement can be found below.
With the Fall of the Lich King content Update, Wrath of the Lich King Classic players can engage in three new dungeons, join in the adventure in the Random Dungeon Finder, and much more.
For many years champions among the races of Azeroth have stood against the Lich King only to be slaughtered mercilessly and forced to serve in his army of undead horrors. In his ongoing struggle to stop the Lich King, Tiron Fordring of the Argent Crusade has joined forces with Darion Mograine of the Knights of the Ebon Blade in order to assault Icecrown Citadel with a unified army called the Ashen Verdict.
Venture into three new dungeons as a part of an initial assault on the Icecrown Citadel. You’ll take on the Lich King’s minions in The Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and the Halls of Reflection.
TITAN RUNE DUNGEONS: DEFENSE PROTOCOL GAMMA
A new mode is now available—Defense Protocol Gamma. Upon entering a dungeon with Defense Protocol Gamma active, an agent of the Argent Tournament specific to your faction will be present and offer each player a selection of additional beneficial buffs. Each boss encountered within Defense Protocol Gamma dungeons will drop a Defiler’s Scourgestone currency. This currency can be used to purchase item level 245 Trial of the Crusader 25-player raid rewards from either Korralin Hoperender in the Alliance area of Dalaran or Kolara Dreamsmasher in the Horde area.
JOIN THE PARTY WITH RANDOM DUNGEON FINDER
Players can now queue for the Random Dungeon Finder for individual dungeons in Normal, Heroic, Defense Protocol Alpha, Defense Protocol Beta, and Defense Protocol Gamma.
QUEST LOG AND QUEST TRACKING
Players can now access a Quest Log and Quest Tracking. Quest Tracking provides you with more information to streamline your adventures. You’ll be able to open your quest log (hotkey: L), select a quest in your log and click “Show On Map”. Opening your map (hotkey: M) and selecting a zone where you have active quests will also display the quest tracking functionality. You can toggle this on and off by opening the map and checking or unchecking the “Show Quest Objectives” checkbox.
NEW COLLECTIONS INTERFACE
Players can now collect pets, mounts, and Heirloom items in one convenient location with many of these being available account wide.
ICECROWN CITADEL’S DOORS OPEN ON OCTOBER 12
Engage in twelve encounters across five wings within the Lich King’s stronghold when the Icecrown Citadel opens its doors on October 12 at 3:00 pm PDT (22:00 GMT) globally. Players can undertake the challenge of this raid dungeon in either Normal or Heroic modes. The Shadowmourne Legendary quest chain will also be available to Death Knights, Paladins, and Warriors who believe they have what it takes to wield this legendary two-handed axe.
