World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Games32 recently posted a new preview of upcoming features in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the next expansion pack for Blizzard Entertainment's MMO. The expansion will allow players to adventure as two new playable races, bring their characters to level 85, take on challenging quests and dungeons in all-new zones, and experience dramatic changes to familiar aspects of the game in the wake of a world-shattering disaster.

Archaeology will be introduced as a fourth profession available to anyone, along fishing, cooking and first aid. This addition is in strict correlation with the new Path of the Titans leveling up method, introduced for the max level players. Yes, even if you find yourself at level 85, there is still some way to go as you will be able to improve stats or pick up interestingly enough talents through a new - let's call it advancement system for a more appropriate term.

Depending on your affiliation to a certain Titan, this Path will vary. You will be able to respect as always, but these things tend to have advantages for everyone.

Along with a handful of new instances available at high levels, yet another surprise is in store for you: heroic Deathmines and Shadowfang Keep.

One of the highest anticipated PVP features will also be made available in this new expansion pack: rated battlegrounds - a breath of fresh air for those many arena haters out there, and their chance to grab the same item level gear as their highly competitive counterparts.

A stats simplification is also in store for you, merging attack power with agility for melee dps classes, spell power with intellect for caster dps, removing defense on tanks, spirit on dps gear, intellect from hunters (replaced with focus, a new resource), and these are only the beginning of the ground breaking changes Cataclysm has in store for your poorly unsuspecting level 80.

And if you always complained you just can't pick up those "fun" talents and must go for that 5% dps boost skill instead, there's also good news for you. As it turns out, most of the passive bonuses a tree has to offer are given to you depending on how many points you invest in it, allowing you more flexibility to pick those quick PvP escape skills, or just whatever you want really.
