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.

    Gotta find this very amusing looking at the fact that you choose a blood elf.

    Just pretend that hunter helm looks like predator helm and it looks awensome. As for paladins GOGO CHICKEN RANGERS.

    I actually like the paladin suit a lot. If it looked like plate and not stone I would like it more, but it actually looks like a paladin set. The red and black coloring would look great on a blood elf.

    Click the picture. Shows the whole getup and all three colors.

    I have to admit, that while at first I wanted to make fun of the Paladin T11, that second coloring looks good. As do the green and dark blue Murloc Men.

    wow that tier 11 of pally and hunter sucks :/

    Hunter looks good. Reminds me of Monster Hunter for those who know it.
    Realy looks like a hunter has been hunting and used the 'parts' like skin and bones to make his own armor.

    EDIT: actually makes me feel like picking up my hunter again

    I bet there is "Murloc slayer" title in cataclysm.

    I think the hunter shoulders should have either had those huge spheres like it did in the concept art or be exactly the way it is now except with the spheres replaced with bone spikes. Having those small ones just seem so out of place.

    The paladin helm had potential when looking at the icons but man... looks like they overdid it with the spikyness. The rest looks good to me though.
  1. Azalu's Avatar
    Oooooooh. Not that sure of the helm of the Pally but the rest I like.

    The Murloc set reminds me of the Malefic rainment. Dunno why

    Sets look bad on Humans. They always do

    IMO, humans make all sets look disgusting, thing they will both look good on others!

    The hunter T11 concept art was exactly like this, except it had even more tiny spheres (which are eggs, by the way) wrapped up in the net. And bone spikes? Wut?

    Sigh, another meh pally set. Hopefully the light effect that boubouille mentioned will make it look better.
