Update
07:00PM CEST - Someone very smart pointed out something very disturbing. Worgens already had Darkflight, a temporary speed spell applying a Mod Speed to the character. So, why did Blizzard add that spell in this build?


  • Running Wild - Drop to all fours to run as fast as a wild animal.

This spell doesn't apply a mod speed, and applies a "Mounted" aura to the player. It's a racial, and it's apparently a Level 20 spell. It also has a 1.5 sec cast time, like all the mounts spells. I don't want to say it yet, but that would explain why we never saw a model for the Worgen Mount.

12:00PM CEST - Added Maelstrom continent map.
11:25AM CEST - All classes changes are now available.
10:00AM CEST - Added Racial changes, added Mounts & Companion Pets.
09:35AM CEST - Added Player and Guild Achievements


Cataclysm Beta - Build 12984 (Codename Puppy)
It's time for another Cataclysm beta build! As usual, expect a stupid codename and a lot of updates during the day. Stay tuned!


Maelstrom Continent Map
The continent map of the Maelstrom is available.



Racial Changes
A couple of racial changes are in, not many, but it looks like Blizzard is starting to move stuff around.

    So... if I understand this right... I, as a mount collector will not get any racial mounts that add to my mount achievements for my Alliance characters!?!?! /cry Don't get me wrong, I like the idea, it can look cool, but if worgen don't get a racial mount than atleast make the Alliance have more, "unique" mounts, such as an Alliance exclusive faction that sells 6 mounts. Maybe they can sell an eagle/hawk mount!

    Who says there won't be a racial mount? Worgen will probably be able to buy mounts anyway, so they will always be able to choose between the mount and Running Wild. Then there's no reason to not have a racial mount.

    Plainsrunning's mechanic was not even close to that one.

    And worgen running on all four is a highly requested "feat" on the beta. It's been discussed multiple times by players and everyone liked the idea.
    But everyone discussed it as being part of Darkflight. Now Blizzard gave us(hopefully, fingers crossed) something SO....MUCH....BETTER!!!

    ok smart people have yout thought like in the original beta that plainstriding or going wild w/e is just a place holder till they finish the real mounts so calm dont on that mountain dew code red wipe the epeen juice from your screen and relax

    Awesome as it sounds (hoping it'll work better than the original Plainsrunning idea), I foresee a lot of work will be needed with the various clipping issues caused by shoulders and dresses.

    I imagine they'll be fixing this, but... it might also slip past their radar.
    Considering it was shown in an article on WoWInsider I doubt it will be overlooked.

    Indeed, this is just a mount if you look at it technically. It has a casttime and doesnt require you to run for at least 10 sec or what.
    The only problem I see is.. how would other races look using that mount? Gnomes will be like hamsters I guess
  1. LolphDundgren's Avatar
    Ofc there will be a racial mount for worgens and heres why.
    If there wasnt then alliance would have less mounts available to them and blizz dont do that. They make sure each side is equal, if goblins get 2 mounts, worgen will too. End of story.

    I've been praying for an ability that allows worgen to drop to all fours and run like a fiend like the npc mobs do, but it's not worth it if it means giving up an actual racial mount. I'm seriously hoping this is just a placeholder.

    Sure, but since they are cows, its should be 10% at lvl 20, and 20% at lvl 60.

    I think it would be kinda dumb to do the boar thing, no where in the back ground of the quests deal with boar raising or any reference to it being a mount by npcs.

    To everyone complaining about Worgen getting Plainsrunning:

    The reason it was removed in ye olden days was twofold. 1), it had a speed buildup (the tauren had to activate it, then run for a few seconds to actually get up to speed), and 2), it had a delay in dismounting that other mounts did not. As far as this new spell goes, neither applies. Which means it'll work perfectly fine. That aside, if they DID do it they'd have to add 2 other alliance-exclusive mounts to fix the disparity. Wait... Wicked theory. What if this is in fact a new mount - a WORGEN MOUNT? They only need to add "letting a gnome or dwarf hop onto your back" at the end of the spell description and we're golden.

    Running Wild sounds VERY cool(another reason to race change to worgen), and I'm not much of a mount completionist(I love mounts, but only ones I actually like) so it doesn't bother me too much that they might not get a racial mount.

    BUT, I wouldn't be surprised if we see this either as a racial alternative to a racial mount, OR if we'll see Alliance get an extra reputation mount(or something) in compensation since Blizz seems pretty mindful of keeping the amount of mini-pets and mounts equal.

    The problem with Plains Running had nothing to do with it not being an actual mount. It had a 10 second(or something like that) ramp up period, plus it probably looked pretty silly seeing tauren running that quickly.

    This, on the other hand, seems to work the same as any other mount, plus Worgen already have animations for it to not look ridiculous.

    Honestly I think it'd be kind of interesting to have worgens get both a mount and the plainsrunning setup. It might sound weird, but Druids have all their different forms including flight form, the only real 'mount' spell in the game where you're not literally mounted on an animal or vehicle of some kind.

    Truthfully I kind of hoped that Darkflight would have you down on all fours too, but meh...

    If they give them both a mount and "running wild" can my cow have his plainstriding (same as running wild) please?

    Honestly I'm willing to bet its a placeholder
