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.

    whats up with the Tol Barad trinkets. Super weak use effects on them. Could this be a sign of trinkets moving back towards completely passive (a la blackwing layer trinkets)?

    I'm excited for the guild mounts and pets! I can't wait to see what the lion or (presumably) wolf for the Horde will look like, or what colour the snail is, or the mini phoenix pet or... have my phoenix mount!

    It was my understanding that they were going to change mount speeds to be based on your skill and not on the mount.
    With that in mind, it would make more sense to create a tabbed mount window, with tabs for [ground mount] & [flying mount].


    Drakavin: there's been changes/tooltip clarifications. Give Boub time to datamine the patch, dammit


    One other thing I noticed on my hunter: you now get Call Pet 1/2/3/4 (learned at different levels) which allows you to summon any of your active pets on the spot, without having to fumble around with stable. Only nitpick I have is that you need to dismiss your current pet first to call the other, but this is still an awesome change.

    I'm not sure what I think of Thrall's new model .... it's nice and all but it doesn't really look like how I thought he would have. At least he looks 100 times better than Garrosh so ... I am at least happy about that. Better yet he doesn't look like someone placed a brick in his chin like Varian.


    However I am extremely excited over the 310% speed flying, especially since a certain person told me it was going to be around 10k to 20k. >.>

    Best idea to date? Change the cheap RNG mechanics of the totem/relics/librams/whatever. I'm still stuck with the BiS ilvl 200 libram for my paladin because of these cheap tricks.

    Hooray for the new relic system!

    Garrosh really looks like the son of Grom Hellscream in the loading screen, awesome... why doesnt he look like that ingame?

    Exactly.

    Still I want those new Azeroth loading screens a little more updated: Goblin and Worgen leaders plz!!

    Thrall looks a LOT better what he was before Cataclysm
  1. Sammonoske's Avatar
    I like how Thrall spontaneously got 30 to 40 years older. It is to bad he is not exactly unique. Sort of a copy and paste updated model of the WC3 Far Seer. Yes I know that is what class Thrall is.

    There is this crazy possibility that all of this is still in beta and not yet finalized. But that's just a crazy, impossible idea.

    Lion mount from the guild reward??? does anyone have a link ot the datamined file? havent seen boub put it up yet.
  1. ruga's Avatar
    Unbelievable o_O 21 pages of QQ and yay about Thrall's new model /facepalm
  1. mordale's Avatar
    well hes been using reused models from beta to now.
  1. Whednesday's Avatar
    So it's been 15 hours or so since the last update of the front page. Still no class updates or new talent calculator. Did somebody have a stroke at their keyboard or is this just how long things will take from now on with the new patching method?

    "ARISE! Rise and heed your master's call!"

    But no, seriously, I'm kinda worried. Has Boubouille just been made the principle subject of the next Bourne movie, or something?

    You want class changes? I give you class changes!
