If you're a keen World of Warcraft player, you no doubt already know all about the big 4.1.0 patch as it launched over the weekend. However, a re-distributable version of the patch has now been available; so for those that haven't updared yet, or have been wrestling with the automated downloader, you can now grab it locally here from AusGamers (376 MiB) or here if you're of the Mac OS persuasion.

As per usual, the update contains a mammoth list of changes and quest additions, chief of which appears to be the Rise of the Zandalari content:
The days when great troll empires stretched across ancient Kalimdor are long past. Millennia of war and internal strife have stripped these nations of their power, lands, and glory. As Azeroth recovers from the destruction of the Cataclysm, the world's divided troll populations face a bleak future. These dark times have spurred the trolls of the Zandalar, the historically wise and scholarly tribe from which all trolls originated, to take drastic action. They have embarked on a bold crusade to save their race by uniting trolls into a single mighty empire. With the Zandalari's aid, the fallen capitals of the Gurubashi and Amani nations—Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman—are already rebuilding, replenishing their forces for a bloody campaign to expand their territories.
If you're not sure what that means, check out the trailer below (or click here for the HD version).

blizzard recycles old content news at 11

It's actually pretty good fun, I've only done ZG and the only thing common to the old raid is sharing the zone. Trash, bosses, etc are a bit different. The change to the LFG system is rad too now that it encourages in demand classes to play for extra rewards.

Yeah I'm loving the new patch, being able to get all your valor points thru heroics out of the way is a good thing.
Zul'Aman is pretty similar to the old one but, just tuned for 5 players.
One thing to mention is although its recycled content to a certain extent, there are so many wrath babies running around, that most people you pug with have no idea and never got to see the content at all, so it's pretty cool in that regard.

How to spot a Wrath baby - the one that wipes the group because they weren't doing what they were supposed to, loading up party chat with all sorts OMG U GUYZ R TEH SUX and then leaving.

Can you still get the amani war bear from doing ZA? I vaguely remember reading something about how they were putting that back in
Posted 05:47pm 29/4/11
You can get an updated Amani war bear by doing a timed run similar to Call of Strathholme Khel.

lol Ticman, I just went through a ZA run about 30 minutes ago and the healer wasn't dispelling the debuff on one of the bosses so I die 15 secs in. the rest of the group struggles through the fight and eventually get him down
He links f*****g DPS meters (a healer!@!) and because I was below 10k due to being dead the whole fight, leaves group. /facepalm
