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.

    Also, Garrosh' character looks sick on the loading screen. Worthy of the Hellscream name.
    Yeah. On the loading screen he really looks insane. Like an orcisch Leader. Hopefully the modell ingame will loke the same later and not like the warhammer peon.

    Thrall becomes an Titan. Looking upon Kalimdor and Azeroth! So thats the way he's goin' to become one!

    Doesn't Thrall new get-up reminds you of the old Orc hermit that Maiev met while she was chasing down Illidan in WC3:FT?
    I hope he's packing some badass armor under that cloth, I imagine all the Alliance rogues would wanna have a go at home now that he's in cloth.

    Thrall is older, NOT old, in his 30's? His beard isn't white or anything.

    His new model is prob so he can get around, makes sense.

    Btw Garrosh on the loading screen, who did that artwork? I want the original, before it was added to the loading screen.
