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!

Nemesis in Hyjal looks really nice too.

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
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
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.

310% Speed Flying Mount
The new 310% Speed Flying Mount skill costs 5000 gold to train. People who already own a 310% flying mount get it for free.

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.

Holy Power
The interface for the new Holy Power resource is here.

Video Settings
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.

    Looks like Thrall could use a chiropractor but a new model is better than nothing.

    hm.. so 3 different orc models..

    The Thrall orc Model - a broken draenei by the looks of it?
    Playable Orc Model - Chunky ogre
    Garrosh Orc Model - Long necked , tall and not as chunky

    I'm sorry, but I REALLY dislike the new thrall, why does he have a cowl? and the Blademaster beads? And he looks incredibly old.

    Geh, I'm sorry, I'm not one for complaining but this kinda makes me sad, and I get the whole Shaman thing he's got going, but why would he throw away Doomhammer's armor, not to mention the Doomhammer.

    And Also, why is he leaning forward so much? he looks super old, he is suppose to look proud, not hunched over and old.

    Hmm Malfurion isn't alone in picking up what will be the newest Azerothian trend it seems, manpurses FTW

    I have to agree. With that face, Thrall really does look like a Broken draenei.

    What gives, Blizzard? Y'all have to make Thrall look so dour? Now Jaina will never go out with him!

    And get rid of the hood, too! He's still a young orc, he doesn't need to look like a complete Farseer already! :P

    Don't think of it as Thrall discarding his old armor... Think of it as Thrall switching to his Maelstrom Taming set.
  1. Nialyah's Avatar
    I realize he wants to save azeroth and all that but from Armor to Bum with beads. Wtf is this?

    Edit: I hope as one above me said. This must be his crappy looking nature resistance set. Damn

    Thrall = Draenei Hippie Indie Jesus Gouki-like.
  1. Rukari's Avatar
    I'd say that makes Blizzard 0/2 for Orc Leader updates. Both Garrosh and Thrall looked better before they tampered with them.

    If only they made Garrosh look like that loading screen, he looks wicked awesome there.
