Die neuen Daily Angel und Kochquests bereits verfügbar sowie Patch 4.0.3a Probleme und Hotfixes

Wer diese Zeilen liest, wird den grossen Kataklysmus wahrscheinlich gut überstanden haben. Eigentlich reibungslos wurde in der gestrigen Downtime die Welt in Azeroth mit Patch 4.0.3a für immer verändert. Pünkltich im 11 Uhr standen die Server dann wieder zur Verfügung. Bis auf vereinzelte Probleme beim Download des 4.0.3a Patches lief alles sauber und unkompliziert. Dafür schon ein dickes Lob an Blizzard. Ich hätte hier mit mehr Problemen gerechnet. Was gibt es also wichtiges neues in der neuen alten Welt? Direkt beim Einloggen bekommt man das Deathwing-Intro Video präsentiert, was erklärt, warum sich die Welt über Nacht so verändert hat.

In Orgrimmar stehen bereits jetzt schon die neuen Koch- und Angeldailys zur Verfügung: Zwar kann man mit der XP noch nichts anfangen und leider auch seine Beruf-Skills damit nicht verbessern, denn durch Abschluss der Koch und Angeldaily gewinnt man nun automatisch immer einen Skillpunkt hinzu, es ist also theoretisch möglich die beiden Fähigkeiten nur mit Dailys auf neue Maximum zu bringen, dass Gold und die Gimmicks gibt es aber trotzdem. Bei der Kochdaily bekommt man sogar schon die neuen Kochpreise, die man für die neuen Cataclysm Kochrezepte braucht. Hier kann man also schon fleissig Marken farmen, um Kochrezepte zu kaufen. Verkochen sollte man das Zeug dann allerdings erst, wenn man damit auch wieder leveln kann.

Die erste Kochdaily war recht einfach: Einfach in Orgrimmar ein paar Kakteen sammeln, für die Angeldaily musste man vor Orgrimmar nach Muscheln tauchen. Den passenden Buff für Unterwasseratmung und Schwimmtempo gabs gratis dazu. Ob sich jede Angel und Kochdaily bis zum Cataclysm Release lösen lässt ist allerdings nicht garantiert, da man sicher auch in den neuen, noch nicht freigeschalteten, Gebieten Sachen erledigen muss. Was negativ Auffällt ist der Wegfall der Portale in Dalaran/Shattrath, da man nicht mehr so mobil ist, wie in der Vergangenheit. Zumal in der alten Welt halt auch noch kein wirklich neuer Content ist, der uns hier längere Zeit binden könnte. Hier haben Magierportale und Hexenmeisterports derzeit wieder Hochkonjunktur und werden für „günstige“ 20G im Tradechat verkauft. Ebenfalls blöd: Alle Instanzen sind, sei es absichtich oder verbugged, gesperrt. Dank der neuen „Man muss die Instanz selbst entdeckt haben“ Philosophie muss man nun ALLE alten Instanzen nochmals selber entdecken, um sie für den Dungeon Finder freizuschalten. Welt-Rundreise inc.!

Ebenfalls integriert sind schon die neuen Händler für Gerechtigkeits und Tapferkeitspunkte. Wer also gerade am Justice Point Cap ist (4000) kann hier schon zwei Justice-Items beim Vendor kaufen und sich für Level 85 auf die Bank legen. Mein Tipp: Roben und Schultern sind für den Priester bis zum Raid quasi Best in Slot, hier kann man nichts mit falsch machen. Fliegen in der alten Welt ist natürlich noch nicht möglich, ebenso sind die heroischen, neuen, Versionen von Burg Schattenfang und den Todesminen noch nicht im Spiel. Das kommt erst mit Cataclysm.

Einen ersten kleineren Hotfix für Patch 4.0.3a gab es mittlerweile auch, den genauen Inhalt findet ihr hier:
