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.

    Please stop posting things that have no basis in reality and no reference.

    You're an idiot, Gamestop had the release date listed as Nov 2, and while most of us knew it would get pushed back, that was the (ahem) 'official' release date, so quit stroking your e-peen and post something useful.

    Also, I'm bummed about the pushback, but hey, at least they are giving us a cool leadup event, tbh, the scourge invasion before Wrath kicked ass, if this is as good I'm perfectly happy to wait another month.

    And still, you keep insisting that the numbers are obviously skewed, yet you have not even tried to correct them, which btw isnt even the point in MY post about this subject before you called me a tool. But I wouldnt expect you to know that tbh

    i find it funny how so many people are complaining about a pushback, WHAT PUSHBACK !!! there never was a set date so therefore cant be pushed back and the game will still release in early / mid november due to the fact that, that time will of the year will be best for their sales, its a fact.

    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.
    Ok, I misunderstood the "farm level 80 content at 85 part".

    Solution for this is easy, I guess. Level 80 heroics and raids will give a really tiny amount of points relative to cost of level 85 items. You will probably be able to get one Cata level 85 item for something like 50 WotLK heroic runs. I don't think it will be the best investment of your time

    Like I said..I was trying to get the point across that using language like that isnt helping any debate at all. That is all. But keep ignoring that fact if you want, its your choice. Lets just hope that people that really take offence to it doesnt report your post because of it. Wouldnt it be a little silly for you to risk a ban because of it ?

    And no, im not gonna report it. Im gonna let you figure things out for yourself instead

    It is racist. Jewish people, are a nation and ethnoreligious group. The Jewish ethnicity, nationality, and religion are strongly interrelated. There is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnicity discrimination. Anti-Semitism is just specific.

    Do you even know what whining is? Because nothing that's been said in response to you has been.

    But bluster away, you're the one making yourself look a bigger fucktard with each post.

    What is it with you people?

    You whined, I changed it.

    It's not a debate, it's not a closed forum for which you need to police, it's just a comment section.

    Good god if I knew people were gonna rage so hard cause the OP was about a release date and it's oh-so-cereal I woulda just ignored the guy who started 'saying things in what seemed like a text-tone that comes across as whining to someone reading it in text with no idea what that person is like irl?' Idk how to make that any different, but there you go.

    Just as a sidequestion cause I really didn't find any info on my question.

    How many Justicepoints does a Boss give in a heroic instance? Considering prices of 1200+ points for one blue piece, I'm scared that if a boss gives 1 point we'll be farming like insane just for one piece^^.
    So here my question to the beta testers:

    How many average justicepoints does a heroic instance run in Cata give?

But no portals? christ, do Blizzard enjoy taking the piss or what? what harm did they do?
    I'm sorry, but until you're a mage trying to get your shit done without being badgered by "portazl plx." then stfu about being lazy. I really do hope they add some portal vendors or my mage is getting her auction house items via mail to avoid cities lol.

    I have seen videos and a Heroic Dungeon Boss drops x75 Justice Points.

    My understanding is that Justice Points will be only AT level.

    Even if they make level 70 and 80 heroics drop justice points people if they are smart will go grab the level 70/80 heroic gear for a lot less points ( if Blizzard is smart they will use all that gear they added as good rewards ).

    so for this JP system. i know in the patch comming our badges are going to be turned into JP. will we be able to get JP in current 80 heroics when 4.0.1 comes out? if so, will any of the vendors be out to turn them it? i mean if your capped on JP then you will have no reason to do a daily heroic ever again.

    Yay Cataclysm delayed! Now I can buy it on launch and play 24/7 with no issues about school! (Or at least less issues than early November)

    Ah well. Even if the portals are gone, I can still teleport within flying distance of dalaran to do whatever I need and bind my hearth to SW. Ah, the pleasures of being an Engineer.

    Yes, yes, and yes. The old vendors should still be there. Although you probably won't be able to buy lvl85 gear, for many there's been no reason to run daily heroics for quite a while now- we got our ICC gear ages ago, and no longer need the gold. With the delay, I expect quite a few people will reach the cap and save for the new shiny lvl85 gear.

    Interesting, seems that the PvP gear not only has higher stats to just stamina, when compared to the PvE gear, but strenght/intellect/agility, too.

    Seems that Blizzard have tried to make more focus on the minor stats, like haste, crit, mastery, etc., while making sure that the major ones are equal, in PvE and PvP (The ilvl of the PvP pieces are higher, so if they were equal, in that regard, they would have had pretty much the same stats.).

    This might solve the issues with PvE gear in PvP and at the same time making resilience more interesting to have, while PvPing.
