Patch 4.1: Map Animation, Vanity Pet Changes, and a Resort Town Preview
Fresh from a foray onto the PTR, Wowhead volunteers Neutronimity and Perculia have brought some exciting news about some notable additions to Azeroth. While they're not a new raid nor a new legendary, they're still important in their own way. After all, it's the little things that make World of Warcraft so memorable!
The first discovery was that there's a new map animation. When users open their maps, they will now
it. This was first brought to our attention a week ago by Wowhead user Satelitko. They even went as far as to make
a video of the animation
The second discovery, this time by Neutronimity, was that companion pets now stay with their owner through thick and thin. Did you hearth away? Zone? Or even log off? Don't worry, they'll stay summoned. A small change to be sure, but a very practical one; summoning your vanity pet every time you left an area was easy to forget.
Of course, we've saved the best for last. The third discovery is pretty big. It's also a little weird. Perculia discovered a brand new resort off in the mountains of the border between Feralas and Silithus while flying around on the PTR this morning. The amount of detail put into this location is tremendous. The area is a neutral Goblin town, its denizens from Gadgetzan, and there are a lot of resort guests around. These patrons enjoy fish burgers, sun bathing, swimming, and even dancing; they also include some notable figures, like
(more like Johnny Sunburned nowadays, right?) and Gordan Tramsay. There's a Blood Elf wearing a new item model we've never seen before--a pair of rhinestone sunglasses. In the background, Goblins spray down mammoths on one side and piña coladas are served on the other.
Anyway, let's get to the screenshots as they speak for themselves and you can be sure we have a lot of them. However, we also have lot of questions. Is this an expansion of the Steam Pools? Is this a segue into dailies--either new cooking ones or Firelands' prequels? Could this somehow be related to a holiday? So far there are no datamined specifics, but with this place teeming with the life and sights to see that it is, don't be surprised if it becomes something important in relation to the upcoming patch.
