Cataclysm: Updated Combat Resurrection Design
2010/11/04 at 9:20 PM
Zarhym just posted a rather interesting announcement: in Cataclysm raiders will only be allowed
one use of Rebirth or Soulstone in 10-player encounters.
In 25-player raid encounters, you will be able to use a maximum of
. There is no equivalent of a "Sated" debuff to track how many times you have resurrected.
What is everyone's opinion on this? Do you think it's better for raiders or worse?

A new beta build is here and as usual we have another new batch of models and icons for your perusal. One of the

! Hopefully we will have a video for this up in the near future, so be on the lookout for that! Other than that awesomely sexy model for druids there are several other models, such as a Corrupted Cho'gall and even more weapons and shields that you will most likely see in the raid dungeons at level 85.
In the icon department we have updated icons for many different gem types and some new dungeon armor icons. There are even new icons for (both Tauren and Night Elf flavors) and .

Bashiok has just posted an update showing the current progress on

Phase 2 was implemented today—in this phase Whirlwind, Emberstorm, Vengeance and Bloodlust are now all linked for Battleground queues. Whirlwind and Emberstorm are now also linked in the Dungeon Finder queue. The same thing is true of Stormstrike, Nightfall and Retaliation. In the final phase all battlegroups for the Dungeon Finder will be linked together by their physical location.

Cataclysm Cinematics & Direct Download
2010/11/02 at 1:28 PM
Some of you may have heard something about users who use the direct download method of obtaining Cataclysm not getting any cinematics—like the new Cataclysm intro trailer, or Wrathgate-style cinematics.
Thankfully last night Bashiok put everyones fears to rest! He clarified that users will be getting these files, just at a later date closer to the release of Cataclysm. So don't worry! Everything will be fine and we'll have all the cinematics in due time!

Elemental Invasion Has Begun!
2010/11/01 at 12:45 PM
One of the final Cataclysm pre-launch events has begun! Elementals will now be invading remote outposts — and a few major cities as well! It's your job to fight back and eventually gain a rare Feat of Strength -
Tripping the Rifts
. Along with the invasions, the Twilight Hammer cultists are now stirring up trouble in the most important cities of the Alliance and the Horde - Stormwind and Orgrimmar. The entire event is still in Phase 1 (out of 4), so the danger isn't extreme... but who knows how grim things will become in a week or three?
You can check out our guide on the new events plus some other invasion info in our
Worgen Running Wild Mount Video
2010/10/28 at 4:57 PM
As many of you already know are not receiving a standard mount in Cataclysm—Instead they are gaining a new ability called . This spell has a 1.5 second cast time like any other mount in the game, but instead of getting onto a mount the player drops down onto all fours and is able to run at ground mount speed. This ability does scale with your riding skill allowing it to go 60% speed at level 20 and 100% at level 40.
We also have a short video clip of the new ability in action! Check it out below!
