Cataclysm® Classic™ is here, which means it is time for more events!

This June is the Dragonslayer Challenge, where teams race through raids and dungeons. Then, the Cataclysm Arena Tournament, where top combatants will again test their mettle in an open bracket.


Dragonslayer Challenge

While many adventurers have conquered Blackwing Descent before, few are as fast and efficient as two of the top speedrunning guilds: Progress (EU - Gehennas) and None of the Above (EU - Gehennas).

But what if they didn’t have all the best items and near-unlimited time to gear up? The Dragonslayer Challenge gives these two guilds basic level 85 characters, limited time to gear up, and forces them to speedrun through Blackwing Descent.

Can these guilds conquer the challenge?

Watch them take on the Dragonslayer Challenge...

[Updated 5/22]

New! Get Wound Up in Spools of Eternal Threads

Players can now increase their thread count with four new items that grant escalating amounts of power for the Cloak of Infinite Potential.

  • Minor Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 20 Threads)
  • Lesser Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 50 Threads)
  • Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 100 Threads)
  • Greater Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 180 Threads (it’s percale!))

Please note that not all Spool of Eternal Thread sources change in quality based on the character’s level. Group finder bonuses and Infinite Bazaar daily quests increase in quality as a character levels. Achievements will always provide a spool that is equal in quality to the Bronze Cache it rewards, regardless of character level. When a Spool grants Stamina, the value is doubled.

These items can be earned and collected through a variety of solo and group ac...

Devastation Evokers will want to check out today’s updates.

The goal of these changes is primarily to increase the viability of the left side of the Devastation tree. We hope this can allow Devastation to be more flexible in their talent choices and have options to build around Firestorm if they wish.

The cap we added for Animosity was primarily to help keep the extension gameplay healthy and not reliant on effects like Power Infusion.

We’re monitoring feedback around this ...

Hello again Death Knights!

Today’s new alpha build has some further updates to the Class and Unholy trees, mostly as it relates to their respective layouts. We heard plenty of feedback on how the Class tree fell short in some of our stated goals especially in the latter half of the tree. To address this, we’ve split out the newest choice node into individual nodes at the capstone level and added a new talent Unyielding Will that removes harmful magic effects when activated.

Blood Draw is no longer at the capstone level and has moved to an optional location in the 3rd gate. We’ve also reduced the ranks of Osmosis, Subduing Grasp, and Runic Protection which feels more appropriate for their effects. We’ve also restructured talents throughout the 3rd gate of the tree to something that should feel better to navigate in addition to the latter talent half restructure we’ve done some updates to the pathing in the 1st gate.

Mind Freeze and its follow up talent Coldthirst...

Hello mages!

We have another round of Arcane Mage changes hitting the Alpha today, and we want to do a check-in on the state of Arcane Mage and how it relates to our stated goals.

As mentioned in our initial post, our goals for our Alpha Mage changes were:

  • Allow you to acquire each specialization’s core gameplay with less talent point investment.
  • Simplify rotational complexity.
  • Provide new nodes that can help you adapt your damage profile to better match a given encounter’s demands.
  • Provide competitive choice nodes that let you opt-out of complex gameplay.

We feel that as of right now, we’re approaching these goals with Arcane, but there have been a few outliers that we’d like to address.

Clearcasting
In this alpha build, we are officially untying Clearcasting’s proc chance from mana spent. While this did add interesting texture to the landscape of Arcane’s rotation, it created some disc...

Hello Feral Druids,

As part of a clarity pass, we’re adding Omen of Clarity’s Clearcasting buff to the personal resource bar and removing the icon highlights it puts on Shred, Swipe, and Thrash. This is an experiment to reduce the visual noise on Feral’s action bars - the highlights can be active frequently, lighting up a significant section of your action bar, and the vine overlay graphics provide the same information.

We’re open to feedback on how this change affects your play.

We’re also reviewing ability icons to eliminate duplicates, such as swapping the Ravage and Dreadful Wound icons so Ravage doesn’t share an icon with Bloodtalons.

Greetings Warlocks.

Today’s Alpha build focuses on restructuring the Destruction specialization tree. We will provide context for some of these changes in this post.

Heads up! Some talents are not yet implemented but should be in a future build.

Soul Fire, Channel Demonfire, and Shadowburn
We’re pivoting away from Soul Fire becoming another execute spell as Shadowburn already fills this purpose. Instead, it will serve as a reward for high critical strike chance and will naturally become more available when Shadowburn benefits from a low health target.

Both Channel Demonfire and Shadowburn spells are retaining their current uses and identities; however, we are introducing new talents that should increase how valuable these spells are in Destruction’s toolkit. We look forward to hearing your feedback regarding the direction of each of these spells.

Summon Infernal
We’ve moved Summon Infernal to a m...

We have the following changes and updates in today’s new build of The War Within Alpha:

CLASSES

  • The number of talent loadouts that can be saved on a per character basis to has been increased to 40 (was 10).
  • We are removing increased melee range talents across the game, such as Astral Influence and Acrobatic Strikes. Default melee range has increased since these talents were originally created, so they now allow specs to attack from well outside where it appears they should be able to. They make the melee experience inconsistent across classes in a way we’re not happy with, so we’re removing them.
    • ROGUE
      • Deathstalker (Assassination/Subtlety) Hero Talents are now available for testing.
        • The harbingers of death, Deathstalkers strike from the shadows to bring a swift end to their targets.
    • DEATH KNIGHT

We’ve got an issue that we’re working to fix.

We plan to spawn the PvP vendors selling Bloodthirsty (iLvl 352) gear as soon as we can.

We’re currently working to fix the setup of Professions that can unintentionally craft iLvl 377 PvP accessories.

We intend to remove the items from players that have them, as soon as possible. So we suggest you don’t invest in them.

Thank you.
