MMO-Champion - Cataclysm Beta - Build 12857 (Codename Ninja)
Update
11:00PM CET - Hey look, a new Beta Build is being deployed on beta servers!.


Cataclysm Beta - Build 12857 (Codename Ninja)
A new beta build has been deploye... Actually, no, a new build appeared out of nowhere and was never deployed on beta servers. I have absolutely no idea why, but, hey, it's still a beta build!

Disclaimer - This build is NOT ON BETA SERVERS, I have no way to confirm strange values by checking in-game and a lot of temporary stuff might be there. I strongly suggest that you don't even try to complain about changes in this build on official forums, and if you plan to do it, you'd better do it in a very nice and constructive way if you don't want to get your ass kicked.
Disclaimer #2 - Most of the tooltips don't work for the moment. Working on it.

  • Pewter Drinking Cup - \"If there\'s one thing dwarves love, it\'s drinking. And fighting. Two things.\"This cup may have belonged to a minor noble or wealthy merchant. It\'s heavy enough to bash in someone\'s brains, and residue suggest it may have been used for just that.Creates Item #63408.
  • Silver Neck Torc - Dwarves are famous metalsmiths. While they produce many implements of war, they are adept at working with softer metals as well. This piece of jewelry was sized for a lady with a very thick neck.Creates Item #63411. /
  • Stone Gryphon - Gryphons have long been allies of the Wildhammer dwarves, who brought their noble steeds to the rest of the Alliance. This small figurine was expertly carved from alabaster. The talons are sharp enough to pierce leather.Creates Item #63410. /

  • Fossilized Hatchling - When you finished assembling this tiny skeleton through some eldritch magic, the little critter sprang back to life. He's a pretty good pet. Since he's a skeleton he doesn't eat much.Creates Item #60955. /
  • Jade Asp with Ruby Eyes - This tiny figurine could possibly be a representation of High Priest Venoxis, though snakes of all types are venerated throughout troll culture. The delicate jaws on this figurine can be closed, presumably to draw blood from a finger.Creates Item #63412. /
  • Moltenfist's Jeweled Goblet - Even among dark iron dwarf kings, Moltenfist's avarice was legendary. This goblet, while once of high craftsmanship, has seen better days. It has been partially melted by exposure to lava or dragon fire.Creates Item #63414. /

    Is it just me or does Twirling Light (Holy Priest talent) still get worse when you put two talent points into it vs putting one?

    Starfall..got buffed....but why Blizz?
  1. Tanatos's Avatar
    And here I thought I'd see some changes for Lightwell. How naive I was. Although the changes aren't bad...but they just seem so unnecessary to me.
    And the more I look at the shadow priest tree...the more I think they will be "fear and horror" in PVP.

    It's not gonna stay like this for long though,8% mana every 10 seconds is way too much i think.
