  • New Expansion: Cataclysm
    « on: August 21, 2009, 09:35:44 PM »




    Quick overview of the new stuff

    Level Cap raised to 85. Less leveling and a lot more actual end game content

    New Races: Worgan / Goblin with starting areas
    New Race / Class Combos, Tauren Paladin for example

    7 New zones in Azeroth inc Uldum & Mount Hyjal (where Ragnaros is trying re-enter Azeroth)
    5 for lvl 78-85
    2 starter zones

    Deathwing has woke, causing a huge Cataclysm. Old World Azeroth has changed, some hugely damaged.

    The Barrens is split in half for example while Desolace now has water / plant life.

    Undercity Topside has been rebuilt

    You will not be able to visit 'old' Azeroth after Cataclysm

    Flow has changed for leveling. Azshara is now lvl 15  etc

    Flying Mounts working in Azeroth

    Guild Leveling system. Work as a Guild to unlock perks for all

    New Battlegrounds, 3 in total, some rated

    New Arena Maps

    Archaeology - New secondary profession

    56 point talents, no new talents on trees

    Path of the Titans will lead to deeper character development

    Confirmed Raids:
    Firelands - Ragnaros returns, slightly pissed from the whole Molten Core thing
    Uldum
    Blackrock Caverns - In Blackrock Spire
    Grim Batol
    Skywall

    Heroic Deadmines & Shadowfang Keep


    Stat Changes:

    ATP, Spell Power, Defense, MP5, ARP, BLK Value all gone, bye bye!
    Agl will give Hunters, Rogues, Feral Druids, Enhance Shamans 2ATP
    Plate wearers will stick to STR

    Spell Power now comes from INT

    Spirit is the mana regen stat

    Tanks will be capped via talents

    Haste affects rage regen, focus etc

    Stamina won't be hugely stacked on all plate anymore, should be more equal to other armors



    Battlenet:

    At some point all WoW accounts will need to be merged into your Battlenet account.
    It will link all of Blizzards new titles like Cataclysm, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2
    Friends list will be multi-gaming. For example in WoW you can see that Deaf is playing (and probably getting hammered in Starcraft 2), can send messages across games.

    Despite some things being strange like tauren priests o.O, this expansion looks pretty interesting... I hope to be done with all my exams before it cames out :)
