Just a month to go

And the countdown is on!
~31 days until Cataclysm will be officially released.

I think Archeology is the one aspect that I'm looking forward the most.
More skills to raise :3

And new areas to explore, easy old-herb farming, mining.
More quests!

After that, it's just another wait for Diablo 3!

Yeah, not a great lot to report atm.
Busy times :)

Combat rezzing limited

Bad news for those elite guilds who used a dozen warlocks and druids to bypass difficult encounters.

Blizzard states: The design for combat resurrection effects has changed a good deal for Cataclysm, and we want to make sure players are clear on how spells like Rebirth and Create Soulstone now function. Rebirth has a 10-minute cooldown and Create Soulstone has a 15-minute cooldown. On raid boss encounters, you can only use one of these combat resurrection spells (so one Rebirth or one Soulstone) per attempt for 10-player raids. For 25-player raids you can use three forms of combat resurrection per raid boss attempt (so three of any combination of Rebirth and Soulstone). The count is incremented as soon as a player accepts a resurrection, so one can always choose not to accept if he or she wants someone else to get the resurrection instead. There is no equivalent of the Sated debuff (which tracks Bloodlust/Heroism usage), but you will get an error message if you try to resurrect too many players, and we might add tracking to our raid interface if there is demand for it. Outside of raid content, you can use as many battle resurrections as you have available.

Cataclysm Login Screen

Yeah, it's awesome.


  1. I would advocate an option to switch between cata, wotlk, bc and vanilla login screens. Somehow I don't like the new one.

  2. The only thing I dont really like is the great growling/howl when you step away from the pc a bit and you get disconnected.
