4.0.3a is on the PTR, and I was wondering what was being implemented and what wasn’t. I could find bits and pieces spread out across the forums, but no central source of information. So, I intend to make a compilation thread of everything that is and isn’t going into the new patch, so people can know what to expect, and hopefully we can cut down on needless threads asking what is and is not going into it.
If there is already a source of information on this that I have missed, inform me, and ill link to it, and just let this thread die. If not, post everything you think is a significant change that people may ask about, and I’ll keep it as up-to-date as possible.
Whats not in:
Creating worgen/goblin characters
Worgen/Goblin start zones
Professions past 450 (Illustrious Grand Master)
Easter Kingdoms/Kalimdor flight
New Zones (80+)
What is in:
Portals in Dalaran Removed
Class trainers in Dalaran where portals once were
New race-class combinations (excluding worgen/goblin)
New Gnome/Troll starting areas
Changes to existing zones
New load screens
Invasion event (Still bugged in IF, NOT completable in SW)
City Quatermasters, with rep tabards (Gilenas is not working)
Blue post Zarhym:
Good thread, Sammew. Aside from content, also included in the upcoming patch are several class balance changes and bug fixes. Due to several talent revisions for select classes, druids, paladins, priests, and shaman will have their talent trees reset.
Experience required to gain levels 71 through 80 is being reduced by 20%.
You’ll also get the Cataclysm introductory cinematic and new login screen.
