    Cataclysm Beta - Build 13242

    Cataclysm Beta - Build 13242 (Codename Unicorn)
    A new build will be deployed on beta realms soon.

    Companion Pets Icons
    Icons for the Lil' Ragnaros and Moonkin Hatchling. The Moonkin Hatchling's companion pet was announced to be the next Charity Pet during Blizzcon. And before you ask, I'll double check but I didn't see any model for those pets yet.

    And don't be sad, warlocks. There's 1 spell that didn't get nerfed (Shadowflame).

    Codename: Nerfbat would be a better name ^^

    Before everyone starts to complains about nerfs and buffs, remember that hotfix patch right after 4.0.1 that balanced gameplay to a managable level for level 80's? This one: http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/...aladin-Tier-11

    These changes are most likely to counter that.

    Holy crap.... Huge sweeping hunter nerfs when we are already the worst class in the game. And no, the buffs to signature shots arent near enough to compensate.

    EDIT: Seemed to nerf everyone.... wtf? Rebalance of damage?

    Seriously? The MM abilities are already severely nerfed. Kill Shot is a pathetic version of it's former self (down to about 45% of it's normal damage on live) and Aimed Shot! is now not only our signature ability but has a 3 point talent required to get Chimera Shot attached to it and has an average crit damage roughly equal to that of Arcane Shot.

    Have you seen rogues? My argument for the worst class in the game. At least they buffed bandits guile and redirect. =)
