World of Warcraft's Patch 6.0 went live worldwide on Tuesday. This massive update brought huge changes to the MMORPG in preparation for Warlords of Draenor.

Some of the changes were controversial. Trade chat is filled with peoples' complaints about the new character models, for example. However, many of Patch 6.0's features should be very popular. Here are the best changes in the patch.

Arena Skirmishes
Arena Skirmishes Return
After years of absence, skirmishes are back for Arenas. Players can team up with friends or strangers in matches that won't affect their Arena ranking. The feature had been removed around the launch of Cataclysm.

Fans have been clamoring for this change for a long time. Skirmishes allow new players to dip their toe into Arenas, a notoriously hardcore activity. Some of them might be scared away, but others will stick with it. This will help Arena attract new blood even this late into WoW's lifespan.

This is also a great feature for veterans. It enables them to try out new strategies or team compositions without penalty. Skirmishes are a new research tool that will help one of the most competitive parts of the game become even more competitive.
