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.

    w00000t Rogue Buff O.o

    I thought that they remove the classe before they buff would buff them

    I really hope that's a new questing zone and not just there as a flyover.

    Demos nerfs dont loook that bad since impending doom will lower demon form by 15 sec per proc, 4 procs is a minute 8 procs is 2 and 1 minute will prob roll around by then so demon form in a pve enviroment has more or less a 1 minute cooldone like this.
    Not to mention a 50% of procing a demon via doom every 15 sec.

    Also, yes almost everyone will have those heroic titles blizz didnt put heroics in the game so 5 people per server would beat them.

    Any other classes think that Blizzard is singling them out and picking on them? I honestly think that by now everyone should know that numbers pass has barely started, so this premature QQ has to be trolling.
    Paladin bitching is justified, paladin numbers are already in rough shape, and they just nerfed them more.

    Don't forget mage's getting cheated out of a new level 85 spell for an old level 70 one.

    So, resto druids lose a neat psuedo-ground-based AOE heal and get a second Wild Growth, but this time on a 20 second cooldown? Yay.

    Are these changes, in addition to the PTR build, going into the beta? Or just these changes? The PTR changes looked nice...

    Let me put it in prospective for you.

    You'll never read a post where a Priest, DK, Lock or Hunter says, 'Forget these nerfs to healing/tanking/dps I'd rather roll a Pally!'

    So yeah, this is why Pallies practice their QQ down to a Jedi art in the vien hope any at Blizz plays a pally enough to give a damn.

    But remeber I faced the truth, Blizz will never EVER let Pallies face roll any other class, accept it like I have.

    If you're having trouble knowing which Class is 'best', then the balance is pretty good, :-D

    Warlock T11 looks nice. I like it. Except for the face of the helmet, that looks messed up.

    Also, your link at the end to http://tier11_warlockgeosets.jpg/ is broken, obviously. I'm no internet genius but I don't believe that's a valid website URL

    Exactly, this is a horrible change, just very bland and uninteresting.

    Lets hope they tie something into regrowth, or it just doesnt seem worth casting atm. Either lowering TOL o even nature's swiftness cooldown.

    Either that or they want to reinforce their design that you should wait for 3 stacks oh Holy Power before using Templar's Verdict while punishing you if you can't manage your resources properly. Seems logical to me.

    Warlock T11 does NOT look nice. But i cant realy compare them to other classes so will have to wait before i start QQ

    Also warlock nerfs is just adding insult to injury while other classes are getting unneeded buffs ...
