Update - Ok things are looking better, added the primary skills for all the classes. Some tooltips might be missing/bugged, we're working on it.

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

    I still haven't received an invite, therefore the only conclusion I can draw is that they unfortunately haven't been sent out yet

    (attempting to be optimistic regarding my odds of receiving an invite.. trying won't hurt right? )

    I think our beta invites got lost in the mail. Don't worry, Blizzard's working on it. I'm sure... Right...? Maybe...? Anyone...?

    Oh well. Great work as always Boub, can't wait for more info to come out!

    I suppose the big blue arena west of Dun Morogh is Vajsh City. And Gilneas turned out to be bigger than I originally imagined.

    EDIT: What are those Islands north of Vajshir and south of Gilneas? Are them Tol Barad?? Thank god your making the new WG far away from a major city. Cba the lag...

    EDIT2: Lol Darkshore looks a mess!

    I dont know if anyone has answered this already but what are the 2 small orange islands of the coast of Gilneas. Are they just there for some kind of drop point into Vashj'ir

    If you look at the deepholm loading screen theres a red beam of light coming from the spire in the middle and if you watch videos of the malestrom theres a red light comming from the middle so correct me if im wrong but I reckon going through the malestrom will end you up in deepholm

    Stop checking your email for the beta invite. I didn't get mine until like 12 hours after my beta was activated, and mine wasn't even done during one of the mass invites so it was probably faster than usual. Check your battle net account and stop trying to get yourself hacked.

    Yea there is also a painted word Thrall with an arrow(at least in Alpha) pointed to a rocky platform so most likely thats where hes headed to talk to elements.
