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.

    Seriously, that's not going to last to live.

    +20% attack speed ALL THE TIME? That's 10x the effect of Bloodlust.

    Bloodlust is only +30%, and that's what, 40 seconds out of every 10 mins? (= +2% sustained, if my numbers are right)
    go look at the improved icy talons for frost dk it does the same thing...

    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.
    Plainsrunning all over!

    What is this? Automatic poison? I don't really understand this concept
  1. AwesomeSauceUK's Avatar
    I like the Running Wild idea.

    I don't see a problem with the Worgen not having a racial mount. It's not really necessary for them, as the Worgen mobs can run and sprint over long distances, so why can't the players? And when I think of a Worgen riding something else.... it just doesn't seem right.
    I'm sure we've all seen images or videos of the quest in the Worgen starting zone where you ride a horse, and I'm pretty sure we can all agree it looked ridiculous. It's also true that considering the Worgen were originally Human, their racial mount would be another Horse., not a Boar. Even if it was a Boar, it would look even more ridiculous.
    I'm not obsessive compulsive so I'm not driven to collect every single mount and achievement out there like some no-life basement-dwelling neckbeard.

    I fail to understand the whining and bawling of a lot of the commenters here.

    As for returning Plainsrunning to the Tauren, sure, seems like a fair idea. Although I think the animation would need to be updated. Hey how about tweaking that underwater running animation they recently implemented? I think that could work for the Tauren, taking huge long strides and moving at mount speed over the plains of Mulgore

    Feh. They could just do like they've done previously and add 2 (or however many the Goblins actually get, if they decide to do multi-colored mounts) more mounts to a different race for Alliance. As for the "PVP imbalance" - There's tons of mods that show you how fast your target is moving, not just that, but why is it necessary anyways to "know if they are mounted or not"? They still wouldn't be able to carry flags, or be "mounted" indoors, so... I don't see the logic behind that complaint.

    WRONG... target them and see if they have this aura up or not... not hard to figure out. also if this is like the npc animation they will actually be on all fours when this aura is on not standing up like normal.

    Yeah because exploding when you res and aggroing things that just killed you sounds awesome.

    Titans grip no longer reduces damage by 10% and dual-wield specialization now increases damage by 10% when dual wielding... I REALLY hope they know what they are doing and are balancing weapons around these changes.. I know they say players will have a lot more health than they have in the past, but we have all seen what geared fury warriors can do.

    Not exactly sure why a few people were so happy about Perception being removed. In my experience, it became completely useless after they made it a passive since it barely helped.

    What's with the Holy Paladin nerfs? Is Holy Light really so OP in the beta?

Won't be as good as a pure healer, or pure dps, but say in a raid where you need a little extra healing, but don't want to sacrifice a dps it will be the perfect fit. I am just going to go ahead and call it though, it will be nerfed. This seems to be the expansion of cataclysm for paladins, nerfing them to the ground seems to have been the main goal set out by designers.
    No. That +hit talent is so a Holy Paladin's judgement won't miss every time he tries to use it to get Judgements of the Pure to proc. It's already in the live builds, and the only reason that it wasn't in the beta beforehand was because they said they'd make a passive but I guess they decided against that and made it a talent again.

    Lastly, I hope that Running Wild stays. Quite frankly, they could fix the mount imbalance by just adding in more to other races. I want this for Worgen. I really do.

    Edit: Races, not classes. I'm a moron.

    Is it just me, or did they make the name worse?

    This Alliance QQ just reinforces that the Alliance doesn't deserve FREAK'n Werewolves!

    The Horde wouldn't care, hell they would have a 40+ City raid with all of the Worgan in human form in suits and top hats riding lvl 40 mounts up to the city gates. Then they all dismount and crouch then transform go in Running Wild form and basically reenact the castles assault in Underworld 3.

    But Blizz will cave and give the fools a horse or an actually ancient Dire Wolf (ancestors of modern whales) which is basically a Wolf with saber fangs and hooves.

    Oh and is it just me or do we see more and more panic builds for Ret Pallies?

    Every new build the switch things around again, like they don't know if they wanna nerf or buff.

    Back in Alpha or around the release of Beta tauren had a spell called Plains runner. Due to massive QQ from the horde Blizzard caved and gave Tauren Kodo, thus removing Plains runner. Running wild is no different, so stop trolling because you are pissed alliance got the awesome race. If you want to play one so bad, roll one. If not, big deal.

    I know what the ability was and why it was pulled.

    Vanilla had real problems in the beginning and the real old timers accept this. The lvl 60 40 man raids to hop in Wagon in the Barrens is proof of this.

    It just seems like an awesome concept and it seems like the kiddies cry not because its a cool ability but because they don't want the meanie Horde may possible get more mounts than the do, which others have pointed out they still won't since the Alliance still will have 2 more mounts.

    *SHOCK*

    And finally don't be haten' mon on da trolls.
