WOW patch returns Onyxia to power

Update 3.2.2 is alive and kicking.

Ageing World of Warcraft boss Onyxia has soared back to prominence, as patch 3.2.2 rolls out and celebrates the MMO's fifth birthday.

She used to be a challenging 40-person raid encounter, and takes a top role in the World of Warcraft lore as sibling to Nefarian and daughter of Deathwing - star of the Cataclysm expansion.

Onyxia, a dragon, will now be a 10- or 25-person raid encounter at level 80, and will drop much more powerful versions of her original treasures. There's even a chance to snag a flying mount modelled on Onyxia herself, granting a 310 per cent speed bonus.

The battle has also been adjusted slightly, although the dangers of the whelp eggs and her devastating Deep Breath remain.

Onyxia headlines the patch, then, but there a wealth of changes (class tweaks included) besides. Those can be found on the World of Warcraft website.
