    Epic Crafted Items, Blizzcon Contests, Concept Arts

    It looks like the official news are calming down, it can only mean one thing: We're back to datamining!

    Epic crafted items in Cataclysm - Updated
    The first batch of crafted epic items was released when the NDA was lifted, due to some technical issues it was ... difficult to get the new ones. This is now fixed and I should have a couple of interesting previews for you in the next few days. (or you can spoil my fun and lurk on the latest additions but not everything is listed there)

    Alchemy
    Apparently, Alchemists will finally get another epic stone in Cataclysm. That's also where you realize how useful Mastery Bonus is, the item is just great for everyone.

    Blacksmithing
    Blacksmith get all the happy-fun-stuff again and will create the weapons that a lot of people will use when they start raiding. Don't expect them to be easy to craft.

    Engineering
    All 3 types of ranged weapons are craftable and your epic helms ... are actually even more epic than we thought in the first place, they are socketable with Cogwheels and Hydraulic Pumps, engineer-only gems.



    Engineers are definitely getting some love in Cataclysm ... an updated preview of the profession will be up soon, with all your new toys. (Assuming they reach the live servers ...)

There will also be various limited-time events to set the tone for the release of Cataclysm. (Source)

    Making Soul Shards "exciting"
    That is still the goal, but we don't think just hooking up a big +damage buff or spell is going to feel that way. It will just be done on cooldown without some kind of situational requirement for doing so. We haven't given up on the idea at all, but it's not a trivial one to resolve. (Source)

    Concept Art
    The Concept Art Gallery has been updated but if you're addicted to artworks, you probably saw a lot of them before.

    As a tank am really happy with the engineering changes, as I only mostly use its perks for my DPS spec.

    I'm sure it's a typo to regular hit rating.

    No, silly. It's for Death Coil!

    Anyways, the Loot-A-Rang sounds interesting...
    Maybe it could be an aoe type thing and it loots everything it passes over or something?

    Actually, I was under the impression that hand of reckoning and even thunderclap were "Spells".

    "Jewelcrafting
    "Your epic gems are back, for the moment they have different colors but I assume they'll be flagged as Prismatic when they're finally implemented."

    Also, the JCer's gems Used to be Prismatic but they were changed to fill color slots many patches ago.

    Just wanted to comment on this, are the Cata JC gems becoming prismatic again or did it slip your mind that the WotLK JC gems have been colored for quite a while?
    The Arcane only corrupts the weak..

    Actually they took out prismatic gems, when ToC was released I believe, because it was to OP to get the meta sockets.

    It's a good day to be Alchemist/Engineer *Cheer!*

    No Tailoring epics? hate you!

    Seems like BS is missing a few things to me at this point.

    Why only a polearm? I can't dual wield that as fury!?! Where is the two handed sword, twohanded axe or two handed mace?

    How come the engineering gun doesn't have additional stats on it?

    This is datamined from an early beta, stats aren't final, items aren't final.
