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

    The only way they can compensate for doing this is giving each class a 4th talent tree then I won't care if there are 10 point talent trees.
  1. Aminozuur's Avatar
    Mh the change to consecration in prot +30sec thats means

    1. It gets a huge cd and close to useless on moving fights
    2. Way to much mana to use it again

    Looks like prot pvp gets a op crusader strike +115% damage (/wave pvp)

    And the change to Divine Illumination. Well i could be a good one or its going to suck like hell + do i miss a healing increase to healing hands? Trying to make a holy paladin able to raid and tank heal cant see a thing that buffs aoe heal in the tree. They even force us to be tank healers again(which i do like as a holy paladin thats why i did reroll at 80) with the judgement changes.

    It's too bad these talent trees are the trees that will be launching with cataclysm!

    These look like 95% of the current trees minus the crap; not sure how anyone thinks this can be final.

    I cant see any improvement coming with the 31 talent trees. Okay some mandatory talents felt awkward, but playing around with them was fun! ... this just feels like a lot of choice is gone.

    You'll get Penance when you spend the first talent point in the tree. Check the main site.

    You realise that Bouboille got these talent trees from the beta client, right, and that they're the real deal?

    The level cap at 51 was just a quick fix to change the number of available talent points, again, read the main site.

    Interesting stuff. I am kinda annoyed by the warlock destro tree tho. As destro you don't use shadowbolt so I kinda hate that to progress down further in the tree I have to waste a point on Imp SB or in the Searing Pain talent (which is really only useful in pvp)... so unless they are making a huge rotation change or something it's a waste of a point imho. Aside from that this all seems cool. I love that resto druids are getting swiftmend at lvl 10 now!

    I see an interesting Pre-Cataclysm event incoming

    Feral druids are nerfed with the 31 point talent trees... I miss some valuable stuff in it...

    I would hug you, but I think you're too far away.

    Just go hug some stranger in the street. What could go wrong?

    These talent trees are one of the most disappointing things i've seen so far in WoW. Removing all the "useless" talents and removing talent points so linear that there is no play in them. Blizzard said they don't want everyone plaything the exact same spec, freedom in all trees in all direction...right. from what i've seen from all the trees it's actually more linear with less choices and less points to choose with. fail imo. wtb old talent trees and talent points back, k pls and tank u
