    Cataclysm Beta - Build 13066 (Codename Bubbles)
    A new beta build should hit the servers pretty soon, see the changes below.


    Warlock Tier 11
    The model of the Warlock's set is now available. I'm not really sure how the gloves are supposed to look, I'm just guessing and they either look like the screenshots below, or like that.





    WoWTal.com - Talent Calculator
    The Cataclysm Talent Calculator has been updated to the latest build.



    World Maps
    Ahn'Qiraj - The Fallen Kingdom is now an independant zone at the south of Silithus.

    When did Lifebloom become restricted to one target? Is that just now, or did I somehow miss that?

    Why would it? We knew about Cataclysm last year, before the 5th anniversary, and it didn't come out. More than likely it will just be added during a Tuesday maintenance or a patch, regardless of whether we're playing Cataclysm then or not.
