MMO-Champion - Cataclysm Release, Dalaran Portals, Cataclysm Epic Stats
Beta Build 13066 - Portals removed from Shattrath and Dalaran
Blizzard doesn't want you to use Shattrath and Dalaran as portal hubs anymore, the latest beta update removed all the portal to the cities and replaced them with class trainers.

Cataclysm Release Date Postponed (Not Official)
A few weeks ago I announced that the target release date for Cataclysm was November 2. Well, according to an update I just got, the release has been postponed and Blizzard will try to release the game in early December. (Basically, either December 7 or December 14)

The Cataclysm by itself will happen earlier and will let you play in the "new" zone for a couple of days/weeks before you can buy the expansion and access the level 85 content. Keep in mind that they're mostly inside info, they're not official and I just report them because ... well, I'm sure you all want to know when it's supposed to happen.


Super-Mega-Uber Cataclysm Items Update
The latest beta build added A LOT of epic items to the game, we have valor points rewards, justice points rewards, Tier 11 armor sets stats, and PvP rewards!




Valor Points rewards
Valor Points are the high tier emblems of Cataclysm, you will only earn them from raids.

    Very disappointing, I don't want it to be released it so near the christmas holidays, as I'd like to do other things than play WoW then.

    We haven't got any (real) new content for a far too long time, and I'll probably end up cancelling my account for a couple of months for the first time if this turns out to be true.

    Work overtime, do whatever it takes but ffs get it out in November.

    Compare that to the PvP helmet above. Less agi, less stamina, far more crit, LESS MASTERY, even with the socket bonus. This is an iLevel 359 epic. Do you see where I'm going?

    Uh huh...you do realize that Wrath of the Lich King was released November 13th right?

    Do you play beta and/or ptr? There is plenty of reason not to release it on nov. 2nd. It's not nearly finished. That has nothing to do with marketing or wanting money. I would rather have it a few weeks later then full of bugs and unfinished stuff.

    If this is accessible via conquest point (which will certainly be the case, that's not an issue).
    Grinding héro will still be much more interesting.

    Again, nobody noticed the "justice pt" which may be a type (hero pt instead) ?

    While I too thought November 2nd was a bit early I do believe they wanted a November release.

    That being said, all other reports indicated that the game wasn't ready for prime time yet...they've only had a 1st pass on many of the various spec's talents and even more worrisome it appears the world phasing mechanics, an integral part of Cata, are still very buggy.

    December is not a great date for releasing a product, what with school exams and other Xmas activities (visiting relatives etc) but at least it shows they still care enough to push back a release date for quality control purposes and for that I give them some credit.

    The converse is true... if the pvp gear sucks people will just pvp in pve gear.

    The PvP helm is not superior to gear you get in Heroics. Blue items that will come from Heroics will be level 365 and ultimately better-itemized than the PvP gear.

    Re-read my original post.

    Also, you still need to compare a 365 epic to the 365 epic before you panic. They're not available in the Database yet.

    ...


    1) These are cata items. You're not actually supposed to walk into an expansion with currency enough to fit you with a full set of i346 blues within 5 minutes /played of dinging 85.
    2) You will get Justice Points from instances at 85.

    I don't see wtf you're on about.

    im pretty sure Saving up on Frost and Triumph now won´t get you far at the vendor when hitting 85, and if you spend time grinding those emblems now for when you hit 85... not time well spent.

    Sick of hearing this crap from people that are playing the beta. The vast majority of WoW players that weren't lucky enough to get in the Beta would rather play a buggy and unfinished Cataclysm than more months and months of a raid tier that has already gone on twice as long as it should have.

    But as I said, it's probably a typo from Boubouille who meant "Hero" (which will be the point we will be able to grind in Cata).

    So you're saying that Heroics will drop iLevel 365 blues? I'm sorry, ut that's... Wrong. Heroic blues will be the ones seen up there - i346. The first tier of raids will be 359, and as is usual, the first tier of PvP will be ½ tier above the first raid tier. And as I said, it's subject to interpretation but I find the PvP gear at least equal to the PvE gear as it stands.

    I was not fortunate enough to get into the beta, but I decided I'd give the PTR a shot. I agree that things are still pretty rough, but I'm very excited for the direction I'm seeing them go. In other words, I can wait.
