Cataclysm Beta – Build 12604 and previously.

July 24, 2010 2 comments

More then two weeks ago last post were made, im sorry for that but all of the beta information makes me mad, everyday new build, new stuff, etc.

Last build, 12604 introduce brand new Armor Specializations, we, resto shamans are focused on:

Tribal Mail SpecializationIncreases your Intellect by 5% while wearing only Mail armor.

With this change Blizzard wants to make our BiS list with Mails, but im not 100% sure that 5% of intellect will be enough when itemization will be fucked 🙂

From class changes, Ancestral Swiftness is back as a Tier 2 talent in Enh tree, this is only noticeable change for our Resto tree.


Our possible Restoration builds at them moment:

This (3/5/31) is core of our build in my opinion, with 3 points in Ancestral Knowledge in Elemental tree and 5 points in Enh tree with points in Improved Shields 3/3 and Elemental Weapons 2/2.

Now, we’ve 2 free points to spend, and 2 “moveable” talents in Restoration tree, in my main build atm i’ll spend thoes 2 talents in Ancestral Swiftness (reminder: Ghostwolf will be useable indoor) which makes my final build like 3/7/31.

You can move 2 talents away from Ancestral Swiftness, 1 from Ancestral Resolve and put thoes 3 points into Focused Insight if you like to play more offensive (possible Flame shocking boss). You can take aswell 1 point more from  Ancestral Resolve and 1 from Elemental Weapons and put 2 points into Telluric Currents if you like to play more more offensive to gain some raid dps and probably good mana gain from “bolting” boss.

So far, our Restoration tree is still dissapointing for me at least. There is lack of new good healing utility.

Aditionally there is highly possible that i’ll have beta acces in next week, so stay tuned with news and previews.

  • Elemental – Thunderstorm
  • Enhancement – Dual Wield, Lava Lash
  • Restoration – Earth Shield
  • Based on GC preview of new Cataclysm talents and mastery, shaman will get following spells on lvl 10, depends on tree what you’ll pick up while lvling, for example: as healer you’ll take Earth Shield, as Enh Dual Wield with Lava Lash and as Elemental Thuderstorm, honestly it’s a big deal for lvling an shaman alt, alot more funniest will come with this changes.

    Yesterday, Blizzard blues were active as hell. So far we know that new talent trees will be 38-42 points in main’spec, we know that typically talents will be 3/3 at max, first tiers will be with 8 talents avaiable (3+3+2) and deep talents would give you 5 points to spend in diffrent tallents (3+2). Trees will be 31 talent points, we’ll get less talents per lvl (1 talents at 2 lvls or so), that all changes are really gonna FLIP UP’SIDE’DOWN game.

    Let’s wait till next beta build to see wtf is going on…

    Official this time and… disappointing, at least for me, from PvE view.

    Blizzard’s blues have been released a early beta of our Cataclysm talents. Honestly our new healing tree is the most disappointing, far more then great priest talents and from “decent” restoration druid, at least in my opinion.

    With our new talents we aren’t taking even single new good PvE talent, instead of that we’re received 2 new PvP focused talents, which are pretty poor trade off for dispel poison and totem.
