MMO-Champion - Cataclysm Prologue Part 3, New Tinkertown, Mobile Armory
Cataclysm Prologue Part 3 - We're under attack!
The 3rd part of the prologue is available for testing and things are getting very serious, capital cities are attacked by elementals every 1~2 hours! This event is pretty fun and a lot less annoying than the WotLK's zombie invasion, if you do not want to participate in the event you should stay alive without too much problem.


  • Guards will try to evacuate citizens, low level players can also use portals to leave the city before the attack.
  • You first have to deploy sandbags/barricades to help defending the city.
  • You will then have to defeat the elementals in all the districts of the city, Orgrimmar is damaged badly in the process and most of the buildings are on fire.
  • After successfully defending the cities, you will get a chance to counter attack by entering the huge portal in capital cities (or using the LFD tool) to fight mini-bosses in 4 different instances.
  • The 4 bosses are Grand Ambassador Flamelash in BRD, Crown Princess Theradras in Maraudon, Kai'ju Gahz'rilla in Zul'Farrak and Prince Sarsarun in AQ20.

New Tinkertown and the Fight for Gnomeregan
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
As Gnomeregan's exiles set out to reclaim their beloved capital from the treasonous Mekgineer Thermaplugg, we bring you a first look at how this wondrous techno-city will exist in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Following the conclusion of Operation: Gnomeregan, High Tinker Mekkatorque and his people have gained a foothold just outside the city in New Tinkertown. Soon, though, they'll find that the surface is rife with a host of new perils that they couldn't have prepared for.

Resolute in reclaiming their lost capital, Gnomeregan's exiles have begun an assault against the traitorous Mekgineer Thermaplugg. Traveling from their temporary residence in Ironforge, they are led by the esteemed High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque, leader of the gnomes, and seek to restore Gnomeregan to its past glory. In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, new gnome adventurers will get to experience this ongoing struggle to retake their former home firsthand, beginning their journey in the besieged upper levels of the techno-city.

In the wake of Operation: Gnomeregan, survivors of the fallout will make their way to New Tinkertown, the gnomes' foothold outside their captured city. From there they will be called into action by the high tinker himself to help protect reclaimed gnomish land from new and imminent threats. As one of the newest recruits to this cause, your mettle will be put to the test when you face perilous trials like rescuing captured gnomish demolitionists, destroying a tunnel riddled with vicious troggs, and extinguishing toxic sludge that has begun to rise from the irradiated depths of the city.

Your most important mission, however, will be to thwart the plans of Razlo Crushcog, conspirator and ally of Mekgineer Thermaplugg. Before Chill Breeze Valley can be fully resettled, Crushcog must be stopped, and only your efforts can bring that goal to fruition. Gnomish know-how and engineering will be your allies, but your greatest weapons will be your wits and the will to fight the good fight... for Gnomeregan!

In World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, you'll encounter these challenges and more in the gnomes' new starting (levels 1-5) experience. Keep a good head on your shoulders and ingenuity in your pocket, and your contributions will help secure a proper home for your fellow gnomes.



Mobile Armory Update - 3D Model Viewer
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
Every character profile on the Mobile Armory now has a 3D model viewer displaying that character as he or she appears in-game, including equipped items and appearance.

  • Simply touch and drag the character model to rotate it.
  • Tap the icon on the top right to switch to a full-screen mode. In this mode, you can view a selection of character animations from the menu at the bottom of the screen. Other full-screen options include selecting a background, toggling the character’s helm and tabard display, and taking a screenshot (which saves to your Camera Roll).
  • Tap the icon to the upper left of the character model to switch between viewing the 3D model and displaying character information.

Other additions in this update include:

  • A character's in-game activity (including item acquisitions, achievements, and boss kills), is now captured in an activity feed. You can display this feed by using the drop-down menu at the top of a character profile.
  • Professions (both primary and secondary) are now displayed on character profiles and are accessed by the same character profile drop-down menu.
  • At-a-glance item rarities: Item icons now have colored borders indicating their rarity.
  • iPhone OS 4.0 optimizations and enhancements.

    Most of the Doomsayer stuff already got tested in the 3.3.5 PTR, actually.

    Prologue Part 3 ? Shouldn´t it be Part 2 ? Part 1 was the attack at Gnom.. what was Part 2 ?
  1. ilovemrdoe's Avatar

    are the bosses farmable?
  1. LanceDH's Avatar
    Part 1 were the retakings
    Part 2 is spreading the word of doomsday
    Part 3 is the actual attack
    I believe..
    guessing part 4 will be deathwing or close to him, maybe just landscape stuff

    Also, is that loot incomplete ? I'd be rather sad if my reso shaman will still be stuck with a 219 shield, while (a lot of)tankies get an upgrade =(
    The events look realy nice though.

    Next stage of the 4.0 download is going live.
  1. mgs's Avatar
    Silly question: are those 4 Twilight Bosses repeatable like, say, Coren Direbrew during Brewfest, or is the kill - once per character, phased?

    I.e. can I LFG for Ambassador Flamelash, not get my plate chest, then requeue and go kill him again, or does this mechanic work differently?

    Thanks.

    So Orgri gets hit hard. This is still the old city on the screens so I suppose that there will be some rebuilding event which will introduce the new 'Hellscreams Orgrimmar'.

    it's been live

    Edit: nvm just realize these are for live servers where defense is still needed
  1. Direfen's Avatar
    This looks great, can't wait till its on the live servers! Fighting besides our faction leaders is gonna be damn fun.

    Also am I seeing people on flying mounts? I can only assume they can't fly on them at the time since it's still the old Vanilla world?
