Beta Raid Testing Schedule for Oct. 17

Omnitron Defense System in Blackwing Descent
Halfus Wyrmbreaker in The Bastion of Twilight

Blackwing Descent is a raid zone with an entrance located along the side of Blackrock Mountain.
The Bastion of Twilight's entrance is located within Twilight Highlands.

Since these are the beta realms, this schedule is subject to change at a moment's notice due to bugs and server issues. More raid tests will be occurring over the next few weeks.

What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been

I have a slight update to spread to the masses. We are going to be adding a hotfix for the achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. This hotfix will make it so that obtaining the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake will award players Master riding.

The way in which 310% will be awarded is going to be a little quirky at first, but we plan to make it a more smooth process in a future patch. For now, you will need 280% flying in order to learn to use the Violet Proto-Drake. Once you mount the drake for the first time it will teach Master riding. The only catch is that you have to dismount and mount the drake again in order for 310% speed to take effect.

Spell Changes
A lot of these changes are most likely the hotfixes we saw on live servers. They probably do not reflect how Blizzard wants to build classes at 85 and I will punch you in the face if you whine about it on forums. Seriously, I will.

If you look at it closely, most of these changes are just proper documentation of the changes announced on live servers earlier this week.

    'No' on the paladin set. Wow.

    The paladin gear looks like a Mardi Gras costume. (Edit: OK, maybe not that bad, but the helm sucks. I hate most of the helms in the game, though.)

    The hunter gear isn't bad if you hide the helm.

    The Paladin looks great I think. Like some sort of Stone Templar. The craggy crown is awesome and the face decor looks especially regal on a dwarf. I'm sure everyone will forget what they don't like about it when the light effects are put in.

    The hunter set is OMFG great.The helm is big and interesting enough that you'd almost feel like playing another race. I want to see someone wearing this and swim. Should look awesome.

    They look better than the shaman ones anyway. All we get are reused warr/rogue shoulder spikes. :/

    Heh, I like it BECAUSE it's a giant murloc skull. To each his own I suppose.

    Yeah the helm is horrible. It looks like a giant Murloc skull and I HATE murlocs. I'll definitely be hiding that. In fact, I think all the sets are ugly to tell the truth. We need an option like in LOTRO where you can keep the look of a piece of gear while actually having a different one equipped. I'd be wearing the Onyxia helm forever if I could.

    Sorry for the double post but I couldn't see the first one because my cookie wasn't accepted on the site.

    Paladin set is U G L I E S T from all tiers paladin has ever recieved... god damn it. Looks like a damn bird paired with stone...

    I like the Hunter set, I think the problem is that armour tends to look horrible on human males (especially Mail sets).

    I'm liking the white variant of the Pala armour, I assume it'll be for Holy. Other two look pretty EUGH though.

    just look at tier 4 and tier 5.
  1. station's Avatar
    I like both tiers... a lot. The only thing that bother's me is how disproportionate the pally's shoulders look to his legs. Oh yeah, and the blue. WOTLK made me hate dark blue motifs.

    Well...I have an 80 Paladin, a Hunter, and a Mage. Guess which one I'll be gearing up in?

    both the paladin set and hunter set look the best in blue. Blue for the hunter set feels the most appropriate, since it goes with the murloc feel and all. The grey pally set seems most appropriate for the class, but happens to be the ugliest imo.

    Very much agree that humans, especially males make most gear look bad.

    Actually, I like all the 3 colors of the paladins' set.. They are just what a paladin should be, heavy and 'set in stone' xD best looking one is the dark blue
