July 22, 2008
Blizzard has just released the official beta talent trees, find them here. They finally released the Hunter and Paladin end talents as well. As you can see, the talents for most classes are pretty much the same as they were in the alpha release. Here's a nice combat rogue setup. Vile poisons only being 3/3 now instead of the old 5/5, means that you'll have an extra point to spare on improved poisons. I also wonder how good tri-spec would be with the extra talent points, probably not quite that amazing. Or maybe a mutilate spec. Hunters are getting an interesting party buff.
  • Survival : Hunting Party - Your critical strikes have a 60% chance to restore 2% mana, 10 energy, 4 rage or 10 runic power to all members of your party. The point of no escape talent also mentions a new trap : Bear trap. What on earth will that do I wonder. A form of snake trap, but with bears? Deathknight.info speaks about the Deathknight tree. Vimeo hosting Some sadder news, as of today Vimeo will no longer be accepting gaming videos - source. Machinima vids will still be allowed, but any other gaming vids will be deleted. Existing vids will be removed after september the 1st. It's pretty stupid in my opinion, they had a chance to grow big like youtube, and they had to spoil it by cutting themselves short. R.I.P Vimeo.
