Cataclysm Beta - Build 13066 (Codename Bubbles)
A new beta build should hit the servers pretty soon, see the changes below.


Warlock Tier 11
The model of the Warlock's set is now available. I'm not really sure how the gloves are supposed to look, I'm just guessing and they either look like the screenshots below, or like that.





WoWTal.com - Talent Calculator

    personnaly, I like the t11 lock, if I ignore the helm ( which we can chose not to show, so not a big deal )
  1. Fuzzah's Avatar
    i hope this warlock set got some kind of flash in their shoulders and it aint final build becuse my god this set looks awful!

    haha! im not against the helm i think its cool looking but it don synergize or fit to the rest of the armor and it needs to be more bulky around the chest.

    seems like its not final cuz its surely needs some improvement on the chest leggs and shoulder also to make it big enuff to follow up with the helmet, But then again it will also look like a deathknight or warrior.... it atleast needs something that is missing cuz it dont fit the helmet just look awkward.

    and the eyes and how un synergized the helm is it makes it look really dumb.

    Not really. Achievement is in patch 4.0.1 so it doesn't mean Cata will be out by then, it means pre-Cata patch will be out. Pre-Cata patch is basically cata client but without server side world changes.

    They want ret to solely focus on secondary healing now.

    warlock's set looks awesome. dont know why you all hate it... seriosly its awesome. and tbh... i dont understand why every warlock set has to look so good compared with other clases... i know that is a lot of potential in a demonic class in design but... but... when they gonna design a decent mage set? when? t3 was great but.. but.. the others? seriosly?

    WOrlock's tier 11 + undead = profit
  1. Charo's Avatar
    So...

    Druids complaining about not being able to spam Regrowth to proc a bunch of freebie AOE healing, because they don't want to think or try to play smart.
    Warlocks complaining about getting "nerfed" because of Decimation (while comparing to live warlocks) and ignoring the huge buff to Bane of Doom and Metamorphosis.
    Paladins complaining about getting a 2hp Templar's Verdict nerfed because the potential to spam 2hp TV @ 110% weapon damage would probably have caused more problems in the end, unable to grasp the idea of balancing in betas.

    etc etc.

    It is a beta/ptr build, they are always changing things, if you think something like "Oh boo who my random spell only hits for base damage, and doesn't scale with stats!" (see: Rip) is INTENDED and going to be that way on live, just stop reading beta/ptr updates, you're going to give yourself a stroke. Blizzard knows what they're doing, yes, we know that random dude who says they don't is the next John Carmack and is going to be designing amazing games anytime now, I trust Blizzard, they did make the game you all love to bash and call a piece of shit, yet are still hopelessly addicted to.

    The tier 11 for warlock looks... well, not exactly terrible but something that could be made in one lazy Sunday afternoon.
  1. Voidgazer's Avatar
    Whoa, so far every T11 set sucks pretty hard. I really hope it's not the final look of warlock set. I expected something more like this.

    That's what I get from the new description aswell. If it really works like this now, it's more of a "fire when max dots are up and forget" button. Takes a little of the fiddling with reapplying new dots out of the game, which makes the dps loss when doing it wrong smaller. Debatable if this change is good. I personally prefer the "do it right and be awesome, do it less right and be ok" approach, to be honest.
