Cataclysm Class Changes

Postby Ensabahnur » Tue Apr 06, 2010 12:58 pm

In case anyone is interested:

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 0683&sid=1

Beginning Wednesday, April 7 we will begin releasing class previews containing an overview of some of the changes currently being planned for each of the 10 World of Warcraft classes. The type of information you can expect from these posts are a list of the new spells from 80-85, the new passive mastery bonuses for all talent trees, a brief outline of some of the talent changes we're currently planning, and in some cases new low level spells for select classes.

These changes will by no means be comprehensive, and are subject to change between now and the launch of the expansion. It's also important to understand that some classes are currently further along in the development process than others, and as a result the amount of information will vary from class to class. Please do not let this frustrate you should your class be amongst those which are on the "lighter" side of things, as all classes will receive the same level of design attention before the expansion is released. Additionally we'll be providing more information for all classes, especially as we move into the beta phase.

Below is the schedule for each class:

Shaman - April 7
Priest - April 7
Warlock - April 7

Warrior - April 8
Death Knight - April 8
Rogue - April 8

Hunter - April 9
Druid - April 9
Mage - April 9

Paladin - April 16*

These posts are being coordinated internationally so they'll be posted at different times throughout the day and night on the given dates to give players around the world the ability to see posts made at a convenient time. This thread will be updated with links directly to each class preview as they're posted.

*The paladin is still deep in development. Instead of giving a preview that would be potentially less comprehensive than the other classes we made the decision to post it when it's ready, in order to properly honor the paladin class and those that play them. The wait isn't too long however as we're expecting to be able to post it on April 16.

Wow, we got abilities they tried to give us last expansion. My new rage mechanics make me feel better though. Wonder what's going to happen to Execute and Cleave.

Actually it's partially the plague and partially the fact that the Forsaken no longer believe in the Light the way Paladins are required to.

Undead Hunters ~= Dark Rangers.

Just noticed they gave druids our aoe bleed and DKs a reliable spell reflect. I hate the WoW team.

didn't read the druid shit but the dk actually has to eat the spell to reflect it unlike warriors. Sure it can be chained with anti magic shell or something but even then on a boss it will only partially absorb most likely anyway so I wouldn't be too worried about it. But I digress lol wowfags get a new game =p

I get that, it's the whole "tuned in with nature" part that doesn't fit. Dark Rangers are more like death knights, but with a bow.

fact that the Forsaken no longer believe in the Light the way Paladins are required to.

And tauren never believed in it at all. Undead paladins sound mighty-interesting lore-wise. (as do tauren)

In other news, FINALLY dwarf shamans.

Who cares about lore?

Blizzard has shown us several times they can change/alter the lore as they see fit, they could allow undead paladins just as easily as they allowed BE paladins.
