World of Warcraft 4.0.1 – One big monster!

So, yesterday the preparation patch for Cataclysm, with version number 4.0.1, was deployed in Europe. I had a feeling it would be big, considering the amount of changes made for Cataclysm; however, almost 6 gigabytes of data makes for one beastly patch! It took me approximately 2 hours just to download the data, and then it took another 2 hours to install it. Ok, my gaming rig is by no means bleeding edge, but still, 2 hours is a long time to wait for a patch to apply. On top of that, after installing that first patch I was greeted by another download; luckily, this time I could use the streaming launcher to download just enough of the game content to let me play.

As for the patch itself, it’s good to see that it is finally here. I have had access to the Cataclysm Beta for a month or two by now, so most of the changes introduced in 4.0.1 are not new to me. Nevertheless, they improve the gameplay in many ways. I haven’t really had time to experiment with talent builds and raiding yet, but it seems like the gameplay on level 80 is a bit screwed up. I’m just waiting for Cataclysm to be released. Until then, playing WoW just won’t be as fun as it should be.
