Blizzard’s preview of its “World of Warcraft” patch 6.2.3. reveals the inclusion of Cataclysm Timewalking, cross-realm Mythic raids, the return of “Valor,” plus a mount reward for players who are able to defeat Archimonde on Heroic or higher difficulty, according to the Inquisitr .

Patch 6.2.3 likewise features a special mount reward for those who are able to clear Heroic or higher Archimonde, the final boss of “Warlords of Draenor.”
During the recent Gamescon expo, Blizzard said that it planning to roll out more updates to “World of Warcraft” as the company prepares for the release date of “Legion,” reported the Sunday Express .
“We’ve made no secret of our desire to expand the role and importance of dungeons in World of Warcraft as we move full speed ahead toward Legion,” Blizzard said in a statement.
