Cataclysm Beta (Build 12759) UI Changes!

There was one other things that got a
needed overhaul was the Video Settings window. Now all the sliders have been removed and turned into drop downs, this way you no longer have to guess what each section of the sliding bar. All settings have different options ranging from the standard fare of Low, Fair, Good, High and Ultra to simple Enabled or Disabled options.
Another small addition is you're now able to

2010/07/23 at 1:25 PM

I believe Blizzard has designed raid frames that I personally might not have to use an addon for!

has finally made its appearance. Performed by Highborne Thaumaturges in the major cities, reforging allows you take secondary stats on your armor and convert them to another secondary stat.

service, but it's something that I've been interested in so I thought I'd take a moment to mention it here.
For those of you who don't know, Dolby Axon is a VoIP service that Dolby has created, intended to fulfill the same needs as a Ventrilo or TeamSpeak server , but with a lot of extra functionality—for example, Axon can actually

Pawn, Now with Added Wowhead Awesome

Some of you may know about this little addon from the last time we
it, but for those who don't here's a little explanation:
is an addon that takes the stats from an item you are looking at and gives it a score based on a weight scale, very similar to our own stat weighting system. The higher the score the "better" the item is according to the weight scales you design.
And now, Pawn users will be happy to know that the team over there has added a little extra awesome into the addon by using our
