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.

    Have you seen some of the damage in beta? I watched a BM hunter grinding video and the 80 mobs in hyjal hit him for <300 damage in a 50k+ health pool. Doesn't seem like much incentive to stay away from mobs. I actually hope they increase the health of mobs in lower dungeons so they match atleast a little bit, the difficulty of the new dungeons. New players/players returning from a hiatus are going to be in for a rude awakening when they go from faceroll 1-80 to CC & strategies.

    Wow, just scoped the new Thrall model -- I like it. He looks like a shaman. (Yes, yes, I know he's technically a Farseer and not a shaman, but bugger off with that.) I guess this is the post-Warchief Thrall model, though, isn't it?

    I think the new Thrall looks great!

    Thrall looks great! Only reason some find him looking like a broken draenei or whatever, is because of his hood.

    thrall model is meh at best
  1. one_entity's Avatar
    About fucking time got a special model. Looks good.
    Wonder what's with Doomhammer's hammer and armor now though. I'm guessing he's got it in safekeeping, to give it to Garrosh once he proves himself worthy of it.
