The first patch since The Wrath of the Lich King has just hit Blizzard's World of Warcraft, bringing fixes, class changes, and perhaps most importantly - a complete revamp of the clam system.
While the ability to create a Death Knight on any server is nice, and the fact that damage over time spells that don't immediately damage monsters now tag the critters as yours anyway is a great boon for several casting classes, WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.0.8 highlights the greatest change the patch has delivered.
Players can now open clams while riding a vehicle, sitting, mounted, stealthed, and invisible.
You hear that rumbling? That is the sound of hundreds of thousands of lapsed WoW players rushing to their computers. This changes everything.
