Cataclysm Beta - Build 12759
A new build is being deployed on beta realms, just like any beta build, it will be painful, a lot of stuff will break, and I have no idea if I'll be able to give you all the content on the first day.
On the upside, Thrall is getting a new model. Stay tuned for changes!
Guild Vendor Rewards
The Guild Vendor is here, a lot of items are placeholders but it should give you a pretty good idea of what it will offer.
And if you're wondering.
Loading screens for each continent have been updated.
Spellbook - Mounts and Companion Pets
The Mounts & Companion Pets are now in the spellbook with a brand new interface.
Tol Barad is open for testing, this is a new outdoor/PvP zone with a daily quest area for the faction controlling it. More on that later.
Relic Slots Items
All classes items in the relic slot now have stats.
Masteries and Armor Specialization
Masteries and Armor Specializations are now available for testing.
The interface for the new Holy Power resource is here.
The Video Settings menu has been expanded, looks like we'll be able to tweak more things in Cataclysm.
Creature Damage Output Changes

We’d like to get your feedback about how combat feels with creatures in level 80-85 exterior zones, including spawn rates and numbers of creatures in specific locations in each zone. Please let us know if this feels adequately challenging, or if there is a little too much face rocking going on.
