Changes To Siege of Orgrimmar in 6.0!

The Pre-Expansion Patch 6.0 will bring changes to the Siege of Orgrimmar in Warcraft!

The next expansion for World of Warcraft will bring a different structure to the raiding world. To prepare players to this new structure, these changes will go in effect during Patch 6.0 for the Siege of Orgrimmar.

Like most pre-expansion system updates, Patch 6.0 will make its appearance weeks before the launch of Warlords of Draenor. This release will be converting the Siege of Orgrimmar to use the new Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties. As stated in A Fascinating Look–Part 3, both Normal and Heroic difficulty raids will be supported as flexible raid sizes while Mythic will require a fixed number of 20 players.

At the same time, the stat squish, class changes, and Hit and Expertise removals will be live as well. The item pieces that once had the removed stats will be replaced by more useful ones.

Raiding as a whole will be retuned for the new numbers and scaling size. But don’t panic! Raiding difficulty won’t be any different before the changes go live and some encounters may be easier than before.

In addition to the above changes, when Patch 6.0 arrives:

  • Flexible Raid difficulty will cease to exist as it does now, and will be removed from the raid queue interface. The new Normal difficulty of Siege of Orgrimmar will offer a similar experience to that of Flexible Raid.
  • The new Group Finder tool will be available, designed to help players create and find groups for Normal and Heroic Siege of Orgrimmar and other cross-realm group content.
  • Siege of Orgrimmar achievements will be relabeled according to the new difficulty structure (e.g. “Heroic: Malkorok” will now be “Mythic: Malkorok”). Credit for these will be retroactively awarded to players who earned them before Patch 6.0.
  • The Garrosh Hellscream “Ahead of the Curve” and “Cutting Edge” Feats of Strength will cease to be obtainable.
    • This means that the Kor’kron War Wolf, awarded by the “Ahead of the Curve” Feat of Strength, will also cease to be obtainable upon release of the pre-expansion Patch 6.0.
  • With the release of Patch 6.0, the drop rate of the Heirloom weapons from Garrosh Hellscream on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties will be significantly increased.
    • Players who have yet to get any Heirlooms will have a 100% (guaranteed) chance of getting a spec-appropriate Heirloom when defeating Garrosh on Normal difficulty or higher.
    • The chance of receiving additional Heirlooms beyond the first will also be increased.

When Warlords of Draenor is released and players are able to head to Draenor and level past 90:

The Siege of Orgrimmar is soon to end and to the victors go the spoils. Make sure you get your Heirloom weapons, achievements, and more before they’re gone from Warcraft!
