While we learned a little bit about patch 4.1 at BlizzCon, with the Abyssal Maw 5-player dungeon and the Firelands raid coming, Blizzard didn't provide all of the details on the patch. However, in a recent set of zone guide videos for G4TV, Alex Afrasiabi -- World of Warcraft's Lead World Designer -- narrated them and dropped a few tidbits about 4.1 and the future.
If you're worried about what you'll have to do each day solo, you're in luck. Mount Hyjal will be receiving a number of daily quests when the patch goes live, and it will also be "fully healed," according to Alex Afrasiabi. This will be fairly timely, as by then we should be running out of dailies to do with a purpose behind them, like raising reputations or obtaining currency tokens.
A few other interesting tidbits from the guide videos, of which there are quite a few:
•The gazebo behind the cathedral in Stormwind was added by a level designer to facilitate in-game player weddings. This is not something Blizzard is officially supporting at the moment, but the designer figured it would be cool to at least give some kind of unofficial staging ground for them.
•Vashj'ir is home of three animal Gods, two of which you encounter in the zone. The third has been fully corrupted by the Naga, and we may see it in the future.
•Uldum itself is the "reorigination device" which would have become active had Algalon sent back the "Omega" message to the Titans. All of the pyramids and such would turn on and a pulse would be sent out that wipes out all life on Azeroth.
In addition to that, in the recent Orgrimmar video, Afrasiabi mentions the portal removals from Dalaran and Shattrath. They're keeping an eye on it, even though they want players to be bound in Stormwind as Alliance and Orgrimmar as Horde, rather than in Dalaran. They may add portals back in, in some capacity, should the need arise. Just don't expect to see them back in Dalaran and Shattrath fully, if in those cities at all. _________________
