Baron Soosdon is back with a new machinima, titled 1.21.1 / 4.0.3 / 2019. The video’s narrative is a bit obfuscated. What is clear is that there is a paladin, a woman, a dragon, and a horse. According to Soosdon, the video represents a return to his old habits, “creating something incoherent and hardly (if barely) understandable.” At any rate, the video is absolutely beautiful to watch.

I especially enjoyed the cityscape, complete with goblin-on-jumbo-tron action. I really enjoy looks at a “future” Azeroth, where technology has taken its inevitable steps forward.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at

Heads up, iPhone users, the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory has been updated to reflect the changes in patch 4.0.3.  This is a quick news brief just to let you know, in case you haven’t gotten any notices about it yet.

The only major changes — albeit pretty important for your character — are that talents and glyphs now reflect their current state as of yesterday’s (or today’s in Europe) release of patch 4.0.3.

You can grab the updated World of Warcraft Mobile Armory here.

The biggest change for this patch is that the Cataclysm cinematic can now be played from the Cataclysm launcher. Deathy’s animations have also been fixed, so he’s no longer confused about who he is.

The latest patch notes can always be found at


  • Much of the data being downloaded in patch 4.0.3 will pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth shortly before the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on December 7.
  • The leader of Wintergrasp raids can no longer kick players from the raid (this change will also apply to Tol Barad in Cataclysm).
  • When in a Looking For Dungeon group, using an instance portal to that instance will now take players to the Looking For Dungeon entrance point instead of the normal destination of that portal. This will make it easier to return to the instance after dying in an LFD group.
  • Honorable Kills are no longer awarded for killing players below level 5.

User Interface

  • Added pets to the new raid unit frames when displayed in party.
  • The default UI Scale has been altered so it will be set at a 1:1 pixel/texel ratio. This will result in a smaller UI appearance for higher resolution monitors.
  • Players may now adjust the local “Lag Tolerance” time for better precision of spell timing. This is an advanced-users-only feature found in the Interface Options (Combat) panel.

Bug Fixes

  • Macros now handle spell variant transitions better. For example, Trap Launcher causes a different version of Frost Trap to be cast. Previously the macro system was not handling this transition properly.
  • Queuing in Looking For Dungeon for a different wing of the instance a player is already in now works properly. For example, a party can now queue for Scarlet Monastery – Library after completing Scarlet Monastery – Graveyard.
  • Killing High Interrogator Gerstahn before killing Emperor Dagran Thaurissan in a Blackrock Depths – Upper City random Looking For Dungeon run will now provide the proper reward. This also applies to Archmage Arugal and the Crown Chemical Company bosses in Shadowfang Keep during the Love is in the Air holiday event.
  • Repeatedly inspecting other players should now function correctly.
  • Area heal-over-time effects should no longer cause players to stand up.
  • Male blood elves have received a crash course in dancing and now know to stop dancing when they run.
  • Drake mounts have gotten bored with gliding and will flap their wings again when flying forward.
  • Druid Flight Form now properly appears in the Spellbook before Expert Riding is learned.
  • Sunfire’s damage-over-time effect now deals damage at the same rate as Moonfire’s damage-over-time effect.
  • GM Ticket messages should now displace buff icons instead of obscuring them.

Nothing official, but if everything goes as planned Patch 4.0.3 should be deployed on live servers this week. This is NOT THE PATCH CHANGING THE OLD WORLD, Patch 4.0.3a will do that and the one deployed this week is mostly here to pave the way for the shattering of Azeroth. Patch notes below.

Deathy – Blizzcon Pet Animations
Deathy was shipped without his animations and this bug should be fixed in 4.0.3.

Patch 4.0.3 now available on Test Realms
Patch 4.0.3 is now available on test realms, no spells or achievements change since the latest beta build but you will most likely have a chance to test a few more things from the Cataclysm prologue event.

I know a lot of players have been curious about this, Blizzard posted an update last night about the mounts and items being removed with 4.0.3.


Quote from: Lylirra (Source)
As stated in the Under Dev page (, patch 4.0.3 brings about The Shattering, a cataclysmic event that will forever change the face of Azeroth. As we prepare to raise the level cap and introduce two new races with the Cataclysm expansion, it’s important to keep in mind that the game world is going through tremendous changes that will affect the availability of certain rare mounts and items.

Swift Zulian Tiger
Zul’Gurub is changing from a raid to a leveling zone in 4.0.3, and this mount will no longer be obtainable.

Swift Razzashi Raptor
This mount will also no longer be obtainable after the change to Zul’Gurub.

Razzashi Hatchling
With the change to Zul’Gurub this non-combat pet will no longer be obtainable.

Tome of Polymorph: Turtle
This tome will continue to be available through other means.

Crusader’s White/Black Warhorse and Swift Alliance Steed/Swift Horde Wolf
As the attempt-based tribute system is being removed from Heroic Trial of the Crusader, the Argent Crusade Tribute Chest will no longer spawn, and these mounts will no longer be obtainable

Reins of the Blue Drake
This mount will once again be available from defeating 10-player Malygos without needing to use the Dungeon Finder. The Reins of the Azure Drake will only be available on 25-player Malygos.

Mimiron’s Head
This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating 25-player Yogg’Saron with no Keepers assisting you

This mount will change to be a very low drop chance when defeating Heroic 25-player Lich King

Although we have no current plans to introduce new ways to obtain the Zul’Gurub mounts, pets, and the tribute mounts, they may return should we find a place where they fit in the future.
