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.

    Shit guys, check them item levels. Seems everything is going to be outdated at level 81... Aww, I was kinda hoping to run Skywall in T10.

    Holy hell... flasks doing +300 Str/Int/Agi ? O.O


    How much would that give with Mixology? 387 at least. [+29%]

    God damn...

    So does this mean that members here who were banned for violating the NDA will be unbanned?

    * Magni Bronzebeard attempted some sort of ritual in Old Ironforge and was turned to stone, leaving Ironforge without a single ruler. While attempts are made to remove the curse from Magni, Muradin Bronzebeard, Moira Thaurassin and Falstad Wildhammer have formed a council of rulers.
    * Edwin VanCleef is dead. His daughter, Vanessa VanCleef is now the leader of the Defias Brotherhood. She has unleashed a plot to bring down Stormwind after witnessing the assassination of her father some 5 years ago.
    * Kalec is rounding up all of the blue dragonflight, as he fears the death of Malygos will be a sign of weakness and Deathwing will send out agents to assassinate the remaining dragons within the flight. This holds true as the black dragonflight has invaded Azshara to hunt down Azuregos. Kalec and Azuregos help low level Horde players to repel the invasion.
    * Malfurion Stormrage is the only thing keeping Darkshore from being devoured by the Cataclysm; he's created a giant twister in the middle of the zone.
    * The Twilight's Hammer are attempting to summon an Old God in Darkshore, Soggoth the Slitherer.
    * Ysondre is the last of the Dragons of Nightmare, and although she has been saved from the nightmare, she states she can never return to the green dragonflight. Emeriss and Lethon are already dead; Ysondre helps players kill Taerar during a quest chain in Feralas.
    My favorite parts about this spoiler. I would like to know a few things, however:

    1. Does the Alliance get a WMD like the Horde, courtesy of the Gnomes? All the radiation from Gnomeregan might be put to good use.

    2. What exactly was Magni doing that got him turned to stone?

    3. If even Edwin VanCleef wasn't safe, what will become of Mr. Smite!?

    4. So... will Azuregos be hostile to Alliance now?

    5. How exactly does a twister in the middle of the zone stop a cataclysmic event?

    6. What body part does Soggoth the Slitherer represent?

    7. Why can Ysondre never return to the Green Dragonflight? And how did Emeriss and Lethon die?

    Outdated at 81? Did you see the ilvl298 blues for lvl80? Even the lvl79 greens are ilvl279...
    If this will go live, it will be worse than every expansion before where highend raidgear was good enough to level til 70 and 80 (i actually used my t2 til 70).

    Welcome to everyone whom will soon join me in the Cat Beta, please god pick the Gilneas server so I'm not on there by myself anymore.
  1. Syrra Coventry's Avatar
    IF I get an invite, I'll join you on Gilneas...as a worgen... lol

    Right now, I'm just bummed about the across-the-board massive losses for alliance players with no appreciable gains to speak of while the horde players gain massive quantities of zonage and area facelifts...

    Well, just compare http://db.mmo-champion.com/i/55052/ to http://db.mmo-champion.com/i/49623/shadowmourne/

    Yes, a lvl.81 craftable blue weapon dominates SM that much

    Talk about outdated

    The only zone I think your missing Boub is Loch Modan, unless I'm completely blind (A possibility).

    Yeah, it's not there

    What about Loch Modan? I don't see anything about it in the Eastern Kingdoms list.

I remember not to long ago everyone was convinced Garrosh killed Cairne. The quest text regarding thrall goes like this Garrosh says " Thrall had you deliver this? < the warcheif takes a step back visably shaken and pale> I understand the meaning of this all to well, goblin". To me, it makes much more sense that Garrosh cannot belive the si:7 has infiltrated so far into horde affairs that they knew where thrall would be. (especially after he kicks non orcs out of his throne room) we dont need more crazy rumors about Garrosh, we Have enough
    I haven't played anything in Cata to be able to say for sure, but I agree with you on this. That definitely doesn't spell out that Garrosh did this. Besides, if he did, why wouldn't Thrall just come back and slap the hell out of him? (And for those saying Garrosh would beat him, I'm sure Thrall could bring allies like the tauren and trolls with him.)

    Also, I find these things interesting...
    "* Baine Bloodhoof is now the leader of the Tauren race in Thunderbluff (those that are part of the Horde).
    * The Forsaken went against Garrosh's wishes and released a plague on Gilneas, killing most of its inhabitants. Sylvannas is expected to be further in the dog house once Garrosh learns of this.
    * The Horde have, thanks to Goblin ingenuity, built "The Bomb" -- a weapon of mass destruction -- and unleash it on a night elf village in Stonetalon Mountains. Garrosh, displeased with the slaughter of innocent people, kills the general who ordered the bomb to be dropped."
    The part about those Tauren that are apart of the Horde...what does that mean? Did some Tauren like the Runetotems get the boot? Is there a split in the Tauren?
    The Forsaken have done this in Gilneas AND took out Southshore...getting a little aggressive I see...
    Garrosh is furious with the slaughtering of innocents? This makes me wonder if Garrosh has finally stepped up from being a little emo whiner to a true leader, but is finding that lots of people aren't respecting him as one.


    P.S.....two more things added.

    * Tiron Fordring and the Argent Dawn have taken over Hearthglen. Tirion Fordring now resides within Mardenholde Keep; his Eastern Plaguelands version at Thondroril River has been removed.
    * The Alliance and Forsaken are fighting over control of Andorhal and the remaining Scourge presence there. The Alliance, lead by Thassarian, have taken control of the western portion of the town while the Forsaken, lead by Koltira Deathweaver, have taken control of the eastern portion.

    although this might happen, they will be converting items currently in the game to align with the new cataclysm itemization guidelines, so i'd say there's a really high chance of the lvl 277 items and prior to contain more stamina/str/whatever than they currently do.

    what i believe is that if they are removing some stats from gear then i can assume that the stats budget was changed aswell so you might find alot of the old items upgraded maybe?

    7. Why can Ysondre never return to the Green Dragonflight? And how did Emeriss and Lethon die?

    It isn't that she can't return, but more likely can't face them after all the damage that she did as a part of the Emerald Nightmare. And Emeriss and Lethon died in the Stormrage book.
