I’m not playing it though, ’cause I have stuff on LIVE to do! What’s coming in 6.1 so far? Here’s some of the key (to me!) things:
- A jukebox for your garrison! I’m guessing this is so you can customise your garrison music. Here’s hoping for the Pandaria inn kazoo music!
- New colourblind options!
- Character model changes! Obviously the Blood Elves get their updated models FINALLY, but Night Elf males get a new running animation, and there’s various fixes and tweaks to other models too.
- Heirloom tab! Heirlooms can be purchased for gold and, much like battle pets, go into a special heirloom window. This allows you to access heirlooms on any character without having to mail them around constantly! There are items that allow you to upgrade these heirlooms so they’re effective beyond level 60, all the way to 100 in fact!
- Garrison mission expiry timer! Now you will be able to see how long before an incompleted mission disappears from your mission window.
- Twitter integration! It’s broken on the PTR at the moment, but allows you to send screenshots and posts to Twitter without having to alt+tab out. Time will tell what the UI looks like and how it all works.
- Raiding With Leashes 3! These new battle pets take you to the Sunwell, Black Temple, and Hyjal Summit (*scream*).
- CANCELLING FLIGHTPATHS! Change your mind about going on a long journey? You can now cancel the flight and get dropped off at the next available flight master.
- A new 6.1 questline at the Iron Docks.
- Items that grant you garrison missions, allow you to instantly complete one, and items to instantly complete work orders! Speaking of work orders, followers assigned to a building get XP when you complete work orders there!
- Blackrock Foundry raid loot missions for your followers.
- A LEGENDARY follower! They look pretty awesome, but I won’t spoil who they are.
- Inevitable balance changes that we don’t know of yet. Those’ll be exciting, oh yes.
This is the stuff that piqued my interest most, but what about you? What are YOU looking forward to most in 6.1?
