Thread: Cataclysm Beta

  1. #1

    Cataclysm Beta

    I have some time on my hands and have a beta key. I was just going to extend an offer to check anything that people would like to have checked. I have several pre-made level 85 characters, but haven't been able to get a decent group together to do heroics.

    I'd be happy to answer any questions and gather any information people might be curious about including, but not limited to:

    archaeology
    leveling professions
    new zone/old zone gathering
    old world instance
    rep rewards/vendor

    Anyone have questions?

    What has happened to the huge gate in northern Azshara? It's a closed gate guarded by a bunch of Timbermaw Furbolgs. Are we able to go in it now?

    Have a couple from the chatbox that I'll add here too.
    Sin's question: Have the mobs that drop Tiny Crimson Whelpling been removed?
    Mahi's answer: They have, but in their place are new Ebon Whelps. Whether they drop the item or not is undetermined.

    Zero's question: What is the current status of the Ravenholdt faction NPC?
    Mahi's answer: (to be added when I have it)

    The Ravenholdt quest NPC is still there, I also confirmed that the junkbox quest is still available from him. (Note: This applies to the *current* build, it is still possible it could be removed/changed)

    The furbolg village is now home to the Blackmaw Furbolgs and includes a fullblown cave which very much resembles the Timbermaw cave. The mobs are level 14 or so, and were hostile to me. Inside the cave was one named mob that had the tag <Blackmaw Chieftan>. I assume this will be part of the new horde quests out there, but have no way to know without playing through a new character if it will involve befriending these furbolgs or exterminating them. I saw no indication of a quartermaster, so I assume it will be the latter.

    Hmm... possibly a new companion. Ebon Whelpling? Blizz did say they were not removing the old whelps, and that they were trying to find new homes for them... But it seems they say a lot of things and don't follow through lately.

    Thank you! Looks like I will need to get my bear poker sharpened.

    First Aid - Do we still need Frostweave to level the first few points after 450? Does Frostweave drop in the new starter zones, or does it go straight to whatever the new cloth is?

    Have you happened to notice if any of the other professions provide xp along the way? (Similar to Archaeology / Herbalism.)

    Have you noticed if any low level quests require a crafted item for a turn in? (Eg: Frost Oil)

    Have you noticed any bottlenecks in the profession levelling process? (Eg: Current existing item which is still needed for power levelling professions is still rare?)
    Dreaming of the day that we can put away our gold and earn interest on it.

    I'll wager 100g that Frostweave won't be found off of New Azeroth mobs.

    Thanks for checking on the NPC for me.

    Ok, important. Please go to Tanaris and verify that the goblins (Dirge or any of them around him) are NOT selling Dirge's Kickin' recipe for practically nothing.

    I read this on Wowhead that they were and I wish to confim.

    I am sure many people, like me, will at least be influenced or are likely to choose which character to level up first based on their professions and the need to overcome any obstacle to use that profession. so as they have just added working professions it would be nice to have some info on any restriction to leveling each profession.e.g. hand-ins to get recipes as we had with enchanting and leather working. The requirement to do dailies (and any level requirements to access them) as we had with jewel crafting or as has been rumoured, trainers for the highest level recipe's being phased so you need to level up to gain access to them, etc?
