WoW Patch 4.1 official trailer and patch notes

Are you ready to spank some trolls and stand against the Rise of the Zandalari?

In Patch 4.1 of World of Warcraft, the Zandalari tribe has convened the scattered troll tribes under one banner in an attempt to reclaim their ancestral lands and rebuild the glory of their lost empire.

The official trailer below shows the prophet Zul hatching a scheme for their return to power. He orders the Gurubashi and Amani tribes to amass their forces in the ancient troll strongholds of Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman, in preparation for world domination.

Darkspear tribe leader and Horde ally Vol’jin knows that once the bloodthirsty trolls return to power, the rest of Azeroth will be in danger. “The Horde is my people if it be war you bring then I stand against you,” he says coolly, and in this context players will be asked to bring the amassing trolls to their knees.

That won’t be as easy as it sounds though. Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman have been redesigned as level 85 five-man heroic dungeons. The trailer reveals all-new dangers, from giant rolling stone traps to giant spirit gods. The bosses in these dungeons will drop epic gear, rare mounts like the Swift Zulian Panther and Armored Razzashi Raptor, and pets.

Be sure to spend WoW Gold on upgrades, because both dungeons will unlock for toons with an average item level of 346 or higher.

Patch 4.1 is expected to go live this week with these two troll heroics along with other major features:

  • Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms. Rewards tanks, healers and DPS with a hefty goodie bag when they sign up for random level-85 heroics when their role is badly needed.
  • Guild Finder. Players can progress faster in group content like heroic dungeons and raids when they belong in a guild. The Guild Finder should help players find the guild that suits their playstyle.
  • Guild Challenges. Guilds will be encouraged to work together with the new Guild Challenges, which are weekly tasks that can be completed by groups composed of guild members for extra guild experience, achievements and WoW Gold.
  • Hundreds of Class, Dungeon and Raid Changes. Buffs, nerfs and other balance tweaks will roll out en masse with Patch 4.1.
