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

    In your face, OWNED, HAHAHA, I laugh at rogues so hard now. And even more now when you comment.. seriously. WHO CARES?
    Rogues have been OP for way too long. This is kickass changes. I'm gonna love kicking rogues ass in PvP, pwning them to the death.
    The be failin' mon, screw the horde GO ALLIANCE. Newbie. Omg I can flame so much, I'm awesome and you suck, lololol.
    I'm guessing you play a warrior and you can no longer fail storm to 2200. because really any good player can take out most rogues. a lot of them are fail just because rogues are squishy for any class. And just a note...when you post on an English forum learn to speak the language before you post because when you don't...your post kinda pretty much fails. but yeah...go horde

    damn i failed failing someone else for not typing readable English...time to go to bed. well i'm done trolling for like at least a week. Have fun y'all

    I know you trolled, so did I. I, for one, tought it was pretty obvious.
    And no, I don't play warrior, nor do I even play anymore. I played resto shaman in PvP, so screw you.
    PS, nothing was wrong with my english, except maybe a few extra ",".
    Thank God you are gone.

    Is it me , or Cho`gall looks like a retard with tha eye on his second head. I mean does it really have to be that glazy ...

    For hunters and all the other classes the talent tree can be replaced by few butons

    Select Class - Hunter
    Select Spec - MM/SV/BM
    Select Gameplay - PVE/PVP

    and that's all. At least Blizz if you are going to leave things like this save us the annoying and utterly useless clicking on the pretty squares. If there is no option to choose from, the act of choosing is useless.

    Problem for me is that they claimed to have MORE choice after doing this. More? Pfft. I could practically take every talent in the Unholy tree for Death Knights with three talent points missing. That is NOT choice. Being able to dip into the other trees eventually does not make up for this. The trees themselves should have considerable choice just in themselves considering how small ALL the trees are now overall.

    Oh and I would normally be happy about the removal of passive “must-have” talents, but there are still a ridiculous amount of them left, which makes the whole problem worse now with less talents to spend on.

    “Just the first” beta talent build or not...this is NOT a good sign.

    Shadowpriests have officially been nerfed into the ground.

    Where are our double damage critical strikes?
    Where are our Critical DoT ticks?
    No more hitrating in any form? You just cost us 6% hitrating.
    Hey wait, you get hitrating based on Spirit. We don't use Spirit as a base Stat. Retards

    Hey I know, lets get a copy of ourselves that deals 15% Mind Blast damage, but here's the catch, it gets bette when you move.
    Our main damage skill is a channeled ability! LIMITED MOVEMENT

    Seriously Blizz. You're losing the plot the more I read about Casualysm

    Atleast every time you now get a talent point you get to spent it in something good.

    I like the talent trees, let's see how everything will work out!

    There is passive stuff that you dont see in the talent tree. Stuff that you had to pick before is now given to you automatically in the background if you go deep enough in that tree. At least that is what i gather from the blue posts posted here.

    So people who whine should hold their horses and wait to see what exactly are the passive bonuses that their class is getting by picking tree A, B or C.

    Oh and Boub, amazing work. You must've stayed up late last night! I checked at 2 last night and all this stuff weren't in yet.

    Haven't they already said DoTs will automatically be affected by crit and haste? And they've changed hit rating for every class; they said they're removing as many "increases x by x%" talents as possible. I'm not sure about the double damage critical strikes; but I'm sure that's not just gone.

    You need to calm down.

    The new talent trees are simplified to much to a point where everyone has the same talents, there is no choice and no diversity. No matter how good the final talent trees are going to be, all pve specs will be the same and all pvp specs will be the same.. and now try the new talent trees and tell me how much choice you have.
