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;

    The recruitment tool is probably useful only for casual leveling guilds. Established raiding guilds will have their own recruitment processes that cannot be replaced by an in-game toy like this.

    I've always wanted to ride my very own Moltres, seems that might become possible in the future. =D

    This mount is so ridiculously awesome Oo.
    I want one. I really hope it isnt made for the item shop /pray.

    The looking for guild interface looks nice but i really doubt it will be used other than recruiting lowlevels for cashflow

    Just a silly comment and I think people are missing this point. We have both the Reins of the Crimson Fire Hawk and Reins of the Beryl Fire Hawk. I do not think it was by accident that the names were so similar. I would deduct that this would imply that it will not be a tcg mount nor a store mount. Why? Tcg never brings out 2 epic flying mounts and won't ever do it with items which almost share exactly the same name. My argument is the same for the store thing. We would have had the one alone. So this might be the raid achievement mounts like frostrbrood and bloodbathed I would guess since they shared the same "type" of mount. Since 10 and 25 is also the same thing now in terms of loot and items I doubt it is a Ragna mount to be honest. Other option could be possibly being faction type mounts , but I find that highly unlikely.

    I am of the opinion that we've already paid full price for the game, so we shouldn't have to pay extra for content, be it vanity or not.

    I know others disagree and I respect that, but I still choose not to buy anything from the pet store myself. So if Blizzard puts it there I'm never going to get it.
