A new build will most likely be deployed on beta realms tonight to fix the funny bugs introduced with the latest ones.

IMPORTANT - The paladin set seems to have a nice light effect that I can't seem to render yet, I'll keep you updated.

Omnitron Defense System in Blackwing Descent
Halfus Wyrmbreaker in The Bastion of Twilight

Blackwing Descent is a raid zone with an entrance located along the side of Blackrock Mountain.
The Bastion of Twilight's entrance is located within Twilight Highlands.

Since these are the beta realms, this schedule is subject to change at a moment's notice due to bugs and server issues. More raid tests will be occurring over the next few weeks.

What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been

I have a slight update to spread to the masses. We are going to be adding a hotfix for the achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. This hotfix will make it so that obtaining the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake will award players Master riding.

The way in which 310% will be awarded is going to be a little quirky at first, but we plan to make it a more smooth process in a future patch. For now, you will need 280% flying in order to learn to use the Violet Proto-Drake. Once you mount the drake for the first time it will teach Master riding. The only catch is that you have to dismount and mount the drake again in order for 310% speed to take effect.

Spell Changes
A lot of these changes are most likely the hotfixes we saw on live servers. They probably do not reflect how Blizzard wants to build classes at 85 and I will punch you in the face if you whine about it on forums. Seriously, I will.

If you look at it closely, most of these changes are just proper documentation of the changes announced on live servers earlier this week.

    Paladin set looks like it's made of stone, not plate.

    Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?
    Why are you wearing that stupid murloc suit?

    Hunters get to wear murloc skulls. Paladins are incased in rock. Not liking the paladin helm, though. The rest of it looks nice.

    Good lord wtf is wrong with the paladin tier rofl XD

    It looks like a huge murloc was about to eat the hunters head, but the hunter found that last gasp of courage, picked up his blade, and chopped the murlocs head off. Bottom line. I like it

    The pally set isn't too bad. One of the better ones imho. There is something fishy about that hunter set... but I just can't put my finger on it (nyuck nyuck nyuck). Seriously tho, tho hunter set is ridiculous.......... in a bad way.

    I think they should fire the armor designers because almost all the t11 has been horrible lol.

    It looks like they killed and skinned Rikuo from Darkstalkers to make the hunter tier.

    Paladin set actually looks pretty badass. Reminds me a little of the original Crystalforge concept art.

    As a hunter (and murloc fan), I love the hunter set. There's a certain Lovecraftian feel to it. Not too sure about the paladin set, though.
  1. bendak's Avatar
    I think the hunter one will look better under more natural, in-game lighting conditions TBH...its kind of gaudy at first but I will wait to see it in-game.

    Best for last, love them both.

    Aww, more tier sets making the Warlock one look mediocre (well, apart from that questionable rogue turban).
    WTT lock set with mage set
