Today we'll take a look at the client strings of Patch 4.1. Assuming that everything goes as planned today (new patches take time!), things should get interesting soon (starting today with fun models)!

"Salamander Hunter" and Crimson Fire Hawk
The new model of Ragnaros was very popular yesterday, let's kick it up a notch with the model of Crimson Fire Hawk and a new monster, the "Salamander Hunter" (who looks a lot like Majordomo Executus).

More to come soon.



Bind on Battle.net account items?
The first hint of bound to Battle.net account items appeared in this patch.

  • ITEM_BIND_TO_BNETACCOUNT = "Binds to Battle.net account";
  • ITEM_BNETACCOUNTBOUND = "Battle.net Account Bound";


Cast on key down
This patch finally gives the possibility to cast spells on key down instead of key up, making you more awesome in raids and battlegrounds!

  • ACTION_BUTTON_USE_KEY_DOWN = "Cast action keybinds on key down";
  • OPTION_TOOLTIP_ACTION_BUTTON_USE_KEY_DOWN = "Action button keybinds will respond on key down, rather than on key up.";


Extra regeneration stats in character sheet
More information seems to be available on your character sheet if you're a rogue, a hunter, or a Death Knight!

  • STAT_ENERGY_REGEN = "Energy Regen";
  • STAT_ENERGY_REGEN_TOOLTIP = "Energy regenerated every second.";
  • STAT_FOCUS_REGEN = "Focus Regen";
  • STAT_FOCUS_REGEN_TOOLTIP = "Focus regenerated every second.";
  • STAT_RUNE_REGEN = "Rune Speed";
  • STAT_RUNE_REGEN_FORMAT = "%.2fs";
  • STAT_RUNE_REGEN_TOOLTIP = "The recharge time for each of your Runes.";


Guild Recruitment
Patch 4.1 will apparently introduce the in-game guild recruitment system promised during Blizzcon! So far we don't have a lot of details on how it will work but the interface can be accessed on PTRs, we'll probably see more of it in later phases of testing.

  • LOOKINGFORGUILD = "Looking for Guild";
  • NEWBIE_TOOLTIP_LOOKINGFORGUILDTAB = "Allows you to find a guild.";
  • BROWSE_GUILDS_BUTTON = "Browse Guilds";
  • BROWSE_GUILDS_NUM_MEMBERS = "%d members";
  • BROWSE_GUILDS_TAB = "Browse Guilds";
  • GUILDBANK_AWARD_MONEY_SUMMARY_FORMAT = "A total of %s was deposited last week from Guild Perk: Cash Flow ";
  • GUILDINFOTAB_APPLICANTS = "Requests (%d)";
  • GUILDINFOTAB_APPLICANTS_NONE = "Requests";
  • GUILDINFOTAB_INFO = "Info";
  • GUILDINFOTAB_RECRUITMENT = "Recruitment";
  • GUILD_AVAILABILITY = "Availability";
  • GUILD_AVAILABILITY_WEEKDAYS = "Weekdays";
  • GUILD_AVAILABILITY_WEEKENDS = "Weekends";
  • GUILD_CLOSE_RECRUITMENT = "Unlist My Guild";
  • GUILD_MEMBERSHIP_REQUEST_SENT = "Guild Request Sent";
  • GUILD_OPEN_RECRUITMENT = "List My Guild";
  • GUILD_PLAYSTYLE = "Guild Playstyle";
  • GUILD_PLAYSTYLE_CASUAL = "Casual";
  • GUILD_PLAYSTYLE_HARDCORE = "Hardcore";
  • GUILD_PLAYSTYLE_MODERATE = "Moderate";
  • GUILD_RANK_UNAVAILABLE = "Rank unavailable";
  • GUILD_RANK_UNAVAILABLE_AUTHENTICATOR = "Only characters with an Authenticator attached to their account can obtain this rank.";
  • GUILD_RECRUITMENT_ANYLEVEL = "Any Level";
  • GUILD_RECRUITMENT_LEVEL = "Level";
  • GUILD_RECRUITMENT_MAXLEVEL = "Max Level";
  • -- Looking for Guild Parameters
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_CASUAL = 1;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_MODERATE = 2;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_HARDCORE = 3;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_WEEKDAYS = 4;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_WEEKENDS = 5;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_TANK = 6;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_HEALER = 7;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_DAMAGE = 8;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_ANY_LEVEL = 9;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_MAX_LEVEL = 10;
  • LFGUILD_PARAM_LOOKING = 11;

    I NEED that bird.

    That mount is so badass, and because of that, it makes me obscenely depressed that I probably won't ever get it because it'll be impossible for a casual or mediocre guild to attain.

    It's obviously the dragonhawk model/skeleton.

    Actually, it uses the proto-drake skeleton.

    Yeah I just saw that thread as well. Score one for really really representative screenshots on the front page!

    (On the other hand, proto-drake reskins have been a long time coming, it's a very nice animation set!)

    Mount = fire, Rag = fire i bet my bottom gold that it is a mount drop from Raggy, not a store purchase.. just doesn't make sense to me (Although it would be kind of awesome to be able to buy something that looks THAT good) but yeah im betting Drop!


    ETA: Upon reading further in this thread i have to also agree with the concept that it might also be the Guild Rep reward mount also.

    I have a feeling that the mount will be part of a Firelands Meta Achievement, since there was two of them (10-25 maybe?)
    If not, maybe a Ragnaros heroic drop. (:

    I hope that mount is reward from new collect mount achievement.
    100 mount achi is already way too casual, they really need to make new one.

    Sorry, not going to happen, if they invest time in such an epic model, it will be obtained in an EPIC way.
    Though I remember how epic I thought the albino drake was when I first saw it(and when I got it), it was the first if it's kind(the model).
