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.

    I'm not sure you understood my post. I'm aware of the point cap, but if WotLK heroics are going to give justice points as a reward then you could simply go back and farm them at 85, buying items as you go to stay under the cap.

    As I said, it's possible that WotLK heroics will stop giving points when the expansion launches, but I haven't read any plans for that happening.

    Not even sure why you said this.
    So im a tool for quoting Blizzard themselves saying they have 11 million subscribers ? Ok then. You dont seem to bring out the real numbers sir, so you contribute nothing but namecalling to the debate. Please leave this thread until you have something to contribute and let the adults debate

    Given that he said farming level 80 instances at 85, this isn't true, there won't be a cap on Justice points once cata hits, only Valor points.

    However I would guess that WotlK instances will give a fraction of the points that Cata ones do, if anything at all.

    mmo-champion continue to announce fake release date, rofl, are they going to predict a release date for all month xD? They already do it for june/july/september/november and december, maybe it's a good way to get a lot of visit on the website, but ..

    It depends. Before I started converting my Frosts in Primordials and Triumphs in gems a few months back I had hundreds of both. I think I was over 1k Triumphs and that was after I had a break till long after ICC release.
    A decent raider doing dailies as well can earn over 70 Frosts and even more Triumphs per week. Do that a couple of months and you'll have 1k+ of both. With a conversion of 2.75 x (frost + triumph) you're looking at reaching the 4k cap without any trouble before even the release of Cata.

    If the prices of the Justice items are similar to the Valor ones (1250 and 1650) you're looking at 3 pieces for a lot of raiders the second they hit 85.

    Ok, I stand corrected. I change my label of you from "racist" to "anti-semetic". Thats clearly better in your oppinion. Second of all, how do you expect me to know you are kidding ? Do I know you in real life ? No. Did you use a smiley ? No.

    And where is the logic in even mentioning jewish people in a QQ from you about a game ? Use your head

    We all know why they are the most often used

    Seems you two geniuses can't figure out that I didn't say anything about the game being a success or not.

    Fail. Legendary Fail if this game launches mid December, getting buried in a lot of other releases, family/friend time during this time. What is going on at that developer already? Things are way out of control, or just have been sloppy all around. Can't wait to watch blizz's subs go down even further from when all the people that bounced after they realized the game wouldn't launch in Aug, and that ICC was going to be "THEE" raid still, nearly a YEAR later. Mine's up, and they're still not getting my money. Stacking this too long of a release with the current crap Art design, we may actually finally be witnessing Blizzard fall the furthest into mediocrity we've ever seen them. Maybe WoW just wore out it's welcome. It had a good run.

    Fail, Blizzard, Fail. Written in Orange. Legendary. Can't wait to see everyone's reaction when Bobby Kotick goes in there and cleans house for their incompetence.

    The portal changes i dont mind. All the portals you need are in the major city's. On a side note the best thing about this expansion is that when cata will hit live servers. we wont see people running around in raid tier gear that they have bought with badges. Thank god it's only avalible to people who actually raid.

    Tank/Heal/DPS gear have the same stamina.

    Yes you are a tool for quoting blizzard obviously skewed numbers.

    Find it funny how you talk about contribute something to some "debate" that doesn't exist.

    Also find it amusing how you talk about "adult debate" while name calling yourself.

    No you didnt. Nor are we calling you out for that. Maybe you should read and comprehend a little before making stuff up in your mind my friend.

    You were the one that called me on my numbers. I asked you to correct me with the right numbers. You answered by calling me a tool, and people defended the 11 million number cause thats the number of subscribers Blizzard officially have.

    If you dont want to correct the number, and instead just call people names, you go right ahead and do that. Its your right to say what you want. And its my right for ignoring your "contribution to the debate" for being silly, childish and ignorant

    Im not calling you anything, nor am I doing anything to my wrists, nor am I jewish.
