Cataclysm Beta - Build 12479
A new build of the beta is up. This post will be updated multiple times during the night.

A lot of stuff has changed and we'll need a few mins to fix everything before I can post all the content. Definitely a lot of interesting stuff, stay tuned.


Talent Calculator
WoWTal.com has been updated with all the new trees. Lot of stuff is still in dev, be careful. If you can't see the new trees push CTRL + F5 to force the refresh (Also, I know the level cap is 50, quick hack to fix the max amount of points)



Classes
Classes pages are up. I might end up doing diffs of all the changes but seriously ... there are really a LOT of changes because of the talent trees revamp, it's probably easier to just check the pages.



Models
Models of Cho'gall (Bastion of Twilight), Atramedes (Blackwing Descent), The Tolvirs (Uldum), Lady Nazjar (Throne of Tides), Humanoid Dragon, Earthen Onager

    My interest is piqued by the small islands that are directly south of Teldrassil, right off their shore. So few people ever post pictures of that general area (nobody likes night elves, lol) so... what's going on there? 8D

    A certain slightly disreputable site already has some talent changes, so it seems likely new trees are tonight.

    The bigger ones are the splintered remains of Darkshore, the smaller ones (I suppose) are the remains of the part of root, Ruth'Eran was built on.
