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.

    Good, paladins had their expansion, time for another class to actually be good for once instead of just rofladins and dks.

    I liked the new tier 11 for warlock, just the helm that looks kinda wierd
  1. tonko's Avatar
    Honestly, i'm really waiting for Cata. A new extension, new equipement, new set, new mobs, new boss, etc.
    Yeah ! It should be hard or impossible to disgust me of wow with all that change and novelty (i like archeology).
    I will try to keep my final vote for when it get out and i don't think i will be disapointed, especially with all those news
    that keeps my hopes and expectations reaaaally low.

    Wow, wow, wow... That warlock tier set. It's freakin' TERRIBLE. Man the art team has must have really ran out of talent and/or ideas so far, as the Rogue and Druid sets sucked, but this lock set is LAUGHABLE at best. It looks like they hit their talent cap for sure now. I saw this coming when the Rogue set, which usually they look good each time at least, looked terrible. Now we have another class which usually has a great armor set which looks amateurish in design too? This is not a good sign. Mix this in with the pedestrian weapon models we had a while back and this game is not looking too bright.

    Blizzard's real art team must be on their new-mmo by now. Or, they're out of ideas. Or, they just don't care anymore. Yet they made sure to have guild chat working as pay-to-use. Get your act together Blizzard, you're making yourself look like a bunch of goofs out for money anymore.

    And about those so-called "clown-colors"; The colors used in this set all fit eachother and do not look anything like what you would call "clown colors".

    This set just looks cool. Period.
    I wish I can do this "lowered expectations" stuff. I also love how whenever Blizzard lowers their standards, you'll have the obsessive Blizzard fans lower their own at the same time giving Blizzard a free pass. But this is just giving Blizzard a pat on the back for not putting their best talent on the game. The weapons and armor shown to date is insulting. They look worse than the stuff you see in Free-To-Play MMOs. It's a joke, and when you compare the stuff we're seeing now to what we've had for years, it's blatantly obvious that Blizzard has either: Moved their top talent to the new MMO. Put their less talented people on this. Lowered their standards and take anything their artist draw up and put on the fridge. Or they're just out of ideas. I DON'T want dragon wings making up all of my armor and weapons, it's stupid. Screw this theme. It looks so elementary.

    That is quite common. The new installs often don't replace the cache files. Remove the cache folder in the main directory and the cache folder in the data folder. Hopefully that will do the trick.

    Hey guys!

    Since some of you already QQ about how awful the new T11 looks and nobody yet posted some different races wearing it except human I thought I might just do this. So here they are.. Pictures are taken from wowhead-modelviewer hence the usual texture bugs are existing (I know I could have been using the Java-Viewer but IMO the pictures would have been just a little bit to small)

    Sorry but I can't link it because of low post count =/ Maybe someone can PM me and post that link for me?

    So long wh0ta

    And for the record, paladins where only OP the first 5 months of Wrath then got nerfed every patch.

    ouch, pretty terrible looking warlock gear. it's like a cross between some bad ass devil and a homeless guy.
  1. Notos's Avatar
    The only part of the warlock set that seems iffy to me is the helm. It just looks too ragged or patched together. I do like the eye glow and the horns though. The other pieces look much better, and I like how the robe looks like it has a pair of wings folded over it. I think it'll end up looking pretty badass but I might have to hide the helm if they don't change it.

    Must be a troll. Either that or someone that hasn't played since the first patch of WotLK.

    whats with the whole "stitched together" look on armor lately? I was hoping that shit would be gone with WoTLK
  1. Horben1's Avatar
    I'm happy with the holy paladin so far, but protection paladin looks difficult to break into subspecs. Like they intend paladin tanks to invest few points in non-protection trees.

    Crusade and arbiter of the light are pretty clear investments, but improved judgments would definitely be a strange talent to take as a tank. Eye for an eye is sort of curious, would it include something like a breath weapon? Or an aura from a boss? Or will bosses in Cataclysm have directed magic attacks? Also, why would retribution have guardian's favour? Is the placement for PVp

    Haste is a strange statistic for tanks, I could see how it would be sort of useful for threat, but most tank weapons swing quickly anyway, and reckoning would do the same thing more efficiently. But I might be thinking with a Wrath paradigm. Protector of the innocent might work, help your healers save some mana during flight phases or the like but healing while you tank disables all your defenses and would likely cost more than it would save.

    Oh boy.. what happened with the cloth designers at Blizzard? Everything in this set looks PLATE.

    And not just this, but besides the chest, everything in this set is terrible ugly.

    I seem to remember in Burning Crusade, for a while, the most effective strategy of dealing with a paladin was to run away before they saw you.

Same goes for retri (my 1 and only char), it feels like they promised us a renault already instead of a porsche and seeing all those great players in beta (*ahum*) duelling as retri it makes me worried. But ive got faith now that almost all classes get a nerfbat and think the outcome at 85 isnt gonna be so bad as it looks
    Woo, someone -not- whining,
