    Cataclsym rumours confirmed + new info *Spoilers*

    This thread contains spoilers. Read at your own risk.


    In the latest issue of PC Gamer (UK) is a 6 page article named '50 reasons to play Catalysm'. The vast majority of what is covered is already known/confirmed, however, there appears to be verifcation of certain rumours first made here on MMO-champion in the days before Blizzcon but that were never confirmed nor denied. I can now bring you that confirmation.


    Just a note on the source before everyone starts screaming for links for scans. I don't have any, nor would I post them if I had them. The proof however can be found in the highstreet shops of the UK in issue 212 of PC Gamer UK (April edition). Being a commercial publication, the magazine can get into serious trouble if it releases information that has not been given the green light by developers, real or not, so I'd like to think this is a very reliable source and is not merely speculating or wishful thinking.


    Warchief of the Horde
    • Thrall will become the next Guardian of Tirisfal. However, Thrall will merely 'leave Garrosh in charge' though this does not stop Garrosh from declaring war on the Alliance and fortifying Horde outposts and cities.

    Inner-Horde relations
    • After assuming command of the Horde, Garrosh labels Cairne a traitor and executes the Tauren Leader. However, this does not seem to be the end of his involvement in Cataclysm and his seeming demise is linked to the greener, lusher Desolace.
    • Garrosh will throw out most of the Blood Elves and Forsaken from Orgrimmar.

    Deepholme
    • It is possible that the Alliance and Horde will be involved in a major battle within Deepholm.
    • Airships will battle in the gigantic caverns al a Icecrown style.
    • The area will also cater for flying mounts.

    Raids and Dungeons
    • Cataclysm will ship with 8 Heroic Dungeons (not including Deadmines and Shadowfang) and 4 Raid encounters.
    • The Skywall will contain a raid with Al'Akir as the end boss.
    • The final fight with Deathwing will take place within Grim Batol.
    • Grim Batol and Uldum raid will patched in post-launch.

    Other
    • Harrison Jones has returned with his friends and is linked to the Archaeology proffesion.
    • One of the new features included in the guild interface/mechanics system is a Looking For Guild function.


    So, as ever, MMO-champion hit the nail right on the head.

    I'm just hoping that this information isn't just some random guy using what's already been rumored, and attaching PC Gamer to it as a stupid label.

    After deliberation, with claims this big, scans are pretty much required.

    Magazines often put out issues a month ahead.

    Also, If im not mistaken.

    Thrall is a shaman.. not a mage.. So im pretty sure he cant be the new gaurdian of Tiris fall.

    Med'an on the other hand chould possibly be.

    And on Blizzcon Metzen mentioned something about Cairne and Thrall traveling around azeroth to help fix the damages.. because he is the world strongest SHAMAN

    And cairne being his bad-ass body gaurd.

    Out of curiousity, where was it "found to be false"? I've never seen any sort of official confirmation or denial. In fact, I've never seen Blizzard comment on Cairne's fate at all.

    What was the magazine's sources? Was this information given in quotes with a named source? Or did it just give the information at face value?

    Re: Cataclsym rumours confirmed + new info *Spoilers*

    I don't really get this. Why is Thrall named as the new Guardian of Tirisfal. Med'an has been named the new guardian countless times in the comics, which Blizzard has repeatedly told us are completely canon.

    Something stinks.

    Deepholme is the plane of earth. It's a giant dome.

    Sunken City is the underwater zone. So yes, there will probably be airships in Deepholme, and (confirmed) Submarines in Sunken City.

    The 'cairne dies' part was something from somethingawful website, it never was something that was uttered by Blizzard. Hence it was deemed just false.

    But there are other points, like the Tauren leaving the Horde if Garrosh killed Cairne. This could be circumvented if the Grimtotems took over, but if that happened then neither paladin tauren would be possible and likely way to many people would just downright quit wow for getting something like that forced down their throats.
    I'm an altoholic since 2005.

    I know, right? If I were Cairne, I'd punt Garrosh right off the side of TB.

    There's a lot of proof of that Caine will die. His son, Baine was briefly removed on the 3.2.2 PTR. On this PTR there were also a bunch of quests in the patch data which were copies of the ones turned in to Caine, but with his name replaced by Baine, implicating that he will be replacing Caine.

    There's also this: http://db.mmo-champion.com/c/36648/b...odhoof-leader/

    Edit: some more proof that Cairne will be replaced by Baine:

    Old: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/775/jou...thunder-bluff/
    New: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/14439/j...thunder-bluff/

    Old: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/776/rit...e-earthmother/
    New: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/14440/r...e-earthmother/

    Baine's role in the level 5 town will be replaced by Ahmo Thunderhorn, as seen here:
    Old: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/763/rit...e-earthmother/
    New: http://db.mmo-champion.com/q/14437/r...e-earthmother/
