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

    On Eastern Kingdoms map you can see Vash'jir, Gilneas, an unknown pair of islands, could it perhaps be Tol Barad?
    Twilight Highlands (Next to Wetlands).
    I see STV is not that big anymore and is split into two zones. Duskwood looks green?

    Kalimdor map, mostly changes to the old zones. Nice little Horde emblem in Azshara.
    And I think that's the huge Uldum zone down there. Man, really big.
    Looks like Theramore got a little more cut off from the swamp.
    The two islands to the south are the ones Feathermoon Stronghold used to be on.


    What's that little lake in the tiny zone above Winterspring?
  1. Ano's Avatar
    Twilight highlands look huuuuge. Also, the Maelstrom zone and the maelstrom on the world map make me hope we'll be able to fly across the Great Sea.
