Cataclysm's end game

Patch 4.3, the end game patch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, is finally out now, and it's brought some much needed refreshment to an increasingly stale and repetitive expansion.

They originally said armour customisation wouldn't happen, but it did, and they call it Transmogrification. Players get to keep their Level 85 stats while still harking back to their favoured gear sets.

The new Darkmoon Faire has been rejigged from the ground up - and it looks all the better.

The Raid Finder tool will take the drudgery out of looking for a raid group, although a raid will still only be as good as its weakest member. Going from past experience with the Looking for Dungeon tool, a poorly put-together group can drive up frustration and high player churn.

Alt characters won't take as long to grind through the old zones, but at this stage, two Level 85 characters are enough for me. I marvel at the perseverance of those who've managed to level 10+ toons to 85.
