So as you probably guessed it, today I’m gonna write about the 4.1 Patch of the World Of Warcraft Cataclysm Expansion.
4.1 brings back the mighty troll faction of the Zandalari, who seek to unite the troll factions and build back the once powerful troll empire. With Zul’Drak under the influence of the undead Scourge (and a place that a lot of people don’t even wanna be in), Zul’Farrak
nothing more but a wasteland in Tanaris (that is being pulverized by over geared lvl 40-50 with a occasional high level friend that just facerolls the instance),
the Zandalari seek to unite the troll factions and take them back to the defeated lands of Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman, and restore the once mighty troll empire, and crush everyone in their path. While the Gurubashi and the Amani eager to join this new troll crusade on the world, Vol’jin of the Darkspear tribe refuses to so abandon the Horde and and send his people in to war.
Apart form the two “new” 5-man instances (that were revamped from the old 40-man and 25-man raids) that Blizzard is calling new content, 4.1 also will not bring us the promised Fire Lands, or the long awaited new instance in Vash’ir, that was supposed to be released at launch (as you’ve all probably guessed by now). Let’s not forget that the two “new” 5-man instances will be offering EPIC items….oh god here we go again….“Hey everyone! I just dinged yesterday and I’m almost FULL EPIC GEARED! I DESERVE TO GO IN TO RAIDS!!!!”
What else….we have a improved Dungeon fighter with extra rewards for the most needed class (a.k.a. tanks…maybe healers at some point), the ability to get all your weekly Valor
points out of heroics in one day if you so desire (instead of doing one a day).
Apart from the improved Dungeon Finder, we also get the a new feature called the Guild Finder, which has been DRASTICALLY improved since it’s original PTR vesrion, but it could still use a little upgrade….let’s saaaaay….the ability for guild leaders to add a questions that the people who wish to join need to answer…like a sign up form (which would save everyone a lot of time so they don’t have to go register on forums, search for the sign up form, copy it, make a new post, etc…..you get the idea!)
The only other thing really worth writing in length are the new plate tanking heirlooms that have come out for all those who wish to level a new character and
it happens to be a plate tank….well here you are. It’s not like it’s actually gonna make a big difference, since people have been leveling tanks with the DPS gear…..but hey…..whatever makes you happy. The new heirlooms consist of the helm, shoulders, back, chest, sword, and apparently pants…which according to MMO-Champion, are still not in the game. Also considering the fact that we are getting tanking pants, it has been confirmed that the rest of the heirlooms will also get pants in the future.
The rest of the changes….ummm….let’s see:
- Guilds get weekly objectives that will allow them level up faster (i think)
- new Archeology items
- new underwater mount that can be used outside of Vash’ir as well
- Winged Guardian Mount available in the Blizzard Store
- Target position on the mini map (FIIINALY!!! But it makes me think that it might be a little OP in Arenas)
- New fishing and cooking quests
- a sh*t load of class changes that you can read about in the patch notes or on MMO-Champion
- Doubled rate of Honor Point gain
And some more stuff that you can read up in the patch notes…sorry but I’m to lazy to write everything that I don’t really care about ^_^
As far as “new” content and new stuff…….4.1 is probably the worst x.1 patch in the history of World Of Warcraft…..and I’m not the one who did the research on that one, this discovery was made by the one and only TotalBiscuit, in a recent episode of BluePlz…and I completely agree with him…
So get your voodoo on and get ready to see n00bs in full epic gear running around screaming EPIC, because patch 4.1 is here!
