Cataclysm Closed Beta - NDA Lift
The NDA is lifted. You're free to discuss anything on the forums.

I didn't expect it to be lifted that soon, some pages look ugly, working on it. Recent forum posts box disabled to (try to) prevent a crash of the site.

    This is my thought on the itemization(spelling?) so far, The best bandage shipped in wotlk healed 5800 over 8 seconds,the best bandage shipped in cata so far seems to be 34800 over 8 seconds 34800/5800=exactly 6. That basically means that the bandage in cataclysm is "6" times better then the bandage in cataclysm, that makes me think that the average hp of an healer/dps at the newly shipped wotlk "18k hp(16+17+18+19+20/5=18" would be 6 times as much.

    For dps and healers that is an average of 108 k hp.
    For tanks that is an average of 162 k hp(based on the number 27k"

    If the big shiny numbers in the alpha is correct and not placeholders, this is our future of 4.0

    It looks like the first wave of invites HAS NOT been sent out yet. If they had been the Alpha/Beta forums would be flooded with noobs.

    I'm going to say that since they're not only doing maintenance on the beta right now, tbu they're probably also pushing a new patch, the invites will not go out until those servers are up again, to allow new players that chance to start in right away.

    TLDR: Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Going by things Boub keeps posting, I'm expecting a deluge of Cataclysm information tonight.

    And the average hp of an dps now is about 30 k for plate, thats 180k hp in the last patch of cataclysm(hypothetical(spelling?))

    More like ~120k hp for tanks, they've noted they want to make hp pools much closer for tanks and other dps'rs

    Seriously check frost mage for PvP, they're going to be insane.

    Cone of cold freezes enemies for 4 secs....
    When below 35% HP enemies have a 30% miss chance with melee/ranged and Frost Nova/Cone Of Cold has no cooldown.....

    Dancing Turkey - Zarhym has basically stated that anything that would have been found in the alpha is fine to post, and the forums there are not going to be wiped, I doubt it will be an issue.

    With te NDA being "lifted" instead of "not active for beta testers" one would assume they mean that alpha posters can post whatever they like from the alpha.

    Wait what is going on with the Int-plate with HIT RATHING?
    There can be 3 solotions for that:

    Heals are going to have a chance to miss in cataclysm(Riiiight....)
    Retribution is going to use int as a primary stat for dmg(OH YEA!)
    Shockadin is going to be a viable dmg spec(<----THIS PLEASE)

    The WoW Tal isn't fully functional, some of the talents are there but the links aren't complete and the images for them aren't showing.
