WoW Patch 4.0.1 Changes & Tenacious D at BlizzCon 2010

By Posted 11 Oct 2010, 20:26

Continuing on from our previous post regarding the World of Warcraft Patch 4.0.1., Blizzard have released more key information regarding class mechanics, glyphs and the new streaming launcher that are set to appear in the patch (that we are expecting tomorrow) along with information about BlizzCon 2010.

For those of you lucky enough to hold a BlizzCon ticket that sold out in 15 seconds of the launch, you are going to treated to an after show performance by none other than Tenacious D.

Obviously fans of Blizzard’s work, the D will be performing a host of new and old favourites post-show which can also be seen if you snapped up a $39.95 pass to watch the event on DirectTV. The full press release can be read here.

Probably the biggest clue to the patch landing tomorrow is the confirmation that the streaming launcher that has been active in the Cataclysm beta for a while now, is set to be deployed with the live game.

The launcher will allow you to download a ‘critical set’ of files labelled and noted by a red phase. Once these files have been downloaded, you will then be able to play the game but may run into errors as certain smaller information may not have been downloaded yet. This is noted by a yellow phase. This means that most of the game data has now been downloaded, but only when it is green will you get the full experience. More on the official annoucement can be found here.

Blizzard also touched on specific class mechanics that are due to change in patch 4.0.1. and also mentioned the reworking of the glyph system. Both of which can be found by clicking the links we have provided in this paragraph.

If this is not enough clues to warrent the forthcoming patch, then i’ll be surprised. Guess we will just have to wait and see.

Are you looking forward to Cataclysm and patch 4.0.1?
