Cataclysm Beta - Build 12759
A new build is being deployed on beta realms, just like any beta build, it will be painful, a lot of stuff will break, and I have no idea if I'll be able to give you all the content on the first day.

On the upside, Thrall is getting a new model. Stay tuned for changes!


Nemesis in Hyjal looks really nice too.


Guild Vendor Rewards
The Guild Vendor is here, a lot of items are placeholders but it should give you a pretty good idea of what it will offer.


And if you're wondering.



Loading Screens
Loading screens for each continent have been updated.




Spellbook - Mounts and Companion Pets
The Mounts & Companion Pets are now in the spellbook with a brand new interface.



Tol Barad
Tol Barad is open for testing, this is a new outdoor/PvP zone with a daily quest area for the faction controlling it. More on that later.





310% Speed Flying Mount
The new 310% Speed Flying Mount skill costs 5000 gold to train. People who already own a 310% flying mount get it for free.



Relic Slots Items
All classes items in the relic slot now have stats.



Masteries and Armor Specialization
Masteries and Armor Specializations are now available for testing.



Holy Power
The interface for the new Holy Power resource is here.



Video Settings
The Video Settings menu has been expanded, looks like we'll be able to tweak more things in Cataclysm.



Creature Damage Output Changes

We’d like to get your feedback about how combat feels with creatures in level 80-85 exterior zones, including spawn rates and numbers of creatures in specific locations in each zone. Please let us know if this feels adequately challenging, or if there is a little too much face rocking going on.

    Wow...the WoW community really will bitch about everything no matter what. Thralls model looks great, you people are crazy. He's supposed to be getting in touch with his shamanistic roots and I think his outfit accurately depicts that. I have no faith in you anymore WoW community. :[

    Well you held faith longer than I did that's for sure. Gotta love the rancid, festering sh*t hole that the majority of the community has become. MAJORITY is key word ;P (not all)

    Brand new accounts are the ones most commonly used for trolling/flaming/QQing; nothing I said indicates that higher post count = superiority, unless taken out of context, which would probably happen if someone was insecure enough to build up a mental image of someone based on their time spent on the forums..

    Thrall looks awesome, though it's probably because of the cap, but he reminds me of a Broken like this. Wasn't his hair supposed to be darker? Ah well, he's still cool.

    The loading screens are awesome in showing who is currently in charge within Outland and Northrend, but there's a weird disconnect going on in the EK/Kalimdor ones. I mean... with virtually every racial leader coming from the Battlecry mosaic, even Garrosh was drawn by the same guy... yet the goblin and worgen images break the style. Yes, I'm nagging about an artistic thing Even though the current loading screens are a mix of styles as well (GENZOMAN's blood elf vs the steampunk-ish Forsaken on the same loading screen).

    Everything else is awesome

    Arthas looks like a Far Seer from Warcraft 3 imo...I know he was labelled "Far Seer" in Warcraft III but why make him look like one of them?

    No, you don't. It is only an option if you want it.
    You're under no obligation to buy it.

    I think it is just for people who complain about never being able to get and use a 310% mount. So now there is no excuse for complainers not being able to get 310% flying, when you can buy it.

    It is a matter of it you want to buy it, not that you have to buy it.

    OMG! It is all just COOOOOL.

    Hah, Thrall looks more like a hobo than the most powerful shaman the Horde has to offer. But I suppose he is adventuring around, so it fits. And his hair is brown instead of black... This I do not understand though.

    Ah, well. Nice to see the most memorable (former) racial leader has his own model now.

    Now if only we can get a new model for Cairne... Too soon?
