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.

The Cataclysm Talent Calculator has been updated to the latest build.

    Probably a normal & heroic set like T9&10. Also the random loot off bosses that use the same models as tier gear.

    My god the lock helm is ugly...
  1. Ulgrim's Avatar
    I'm not the type of person that is negative about the way that gear looks, but honestly where did all the talented, creative armor designers go? the new mmo?
  1. nachogod's Avatar
    Bah. Every time I see "Racials" in one of these updates I look for Troll and see nothing. I don't expect to match the goblins or practically any other race, but at least throw us SOMETHING.

    FYI: On googlereader, at the bottom of the entry is

    <a href="http://media.mmo-champion.com/images/news/2010/september/tier11_warlock.jpg"

    I.e., the text "<a " not an anchor

    It is not uncommon to see html code (mis-escaped) on your RSS entries.

    KC buff was just restored version of the previous nerf, almost every main shot got nerfed in the 2nd beta build, arcane shot went from 19 to 4% (4.75 times, yes) RAP scaling in the last build, Bite buff from 7% to 8% when they nerfed it from 14% just yesterday together with a nerf to animal handler talent

    glad to see people reading patch notes every 2 days...

    from the first beta build this is a total nerf to the BM spec: 10% more RAP scaling to KC but a huge nerf to pet specials, arcane shot and animal handler...and they also removed Rhumba!

    I guess this is somewhat a stupid question.. but this build... with the changes lsited.. will also include the PTR change list as well correct? I mean it would be silly to NOT make them the same... if so I would have thought the Beta patch changes list on home page would have included ALL the changes....

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks the warlock set looks awesome, the robes remind me of lulu from FFX a little bit.

    Well according to the cata talent calc, its still the ground aoe. Hopefully it stay that way. Its more interesting I think.

    Here comes the rainbow warlocks! seriously wtb BC modellers back
  1. Daehawk's Avatar
    Checking out the lock tier model in 3d where you can rotate it, makes it look a lot better than what it looks like there imo. The Brown set and red set I think I like the best the other two...
  1. Cordae's Avatar
    Ew. The first Warlock tier I really don't like, but human models tend to ruin most things for me. I hope it at least looks better on undead chicks.

    Lock-tier looks odd, but kinda neat, but then also a bit weird, but it's cool, guess it's a bit ugly, but nice at the same time, you know?

    Yes. You're the only one.

    Lock T11 looks hideous. It's the first one that looks really poor since the sand people inspired AQ gear.

    The gear looks like a cross between a dragon, troll, lizard and that piece of #$@% from South Park.
  1. Voix's Avatar
    T11 lock is a hide helm job. Gloves look terribad, hope they get a bit more work done on them *look unfinished* other than that I likes.
