WoW: Cataclysm Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer has posted a new preview of Cataclysm, the upcoming next expansion for Blizzard Entertainment's popular MMO, World of Warcraft. The article includes information about the fate of Path of the Titans, improvements to Glyphs, updates to Battlegrounds, and new details about raids and guilds.

Inscription has indeed already undergone some fairly interesting changes as a result of moving away from the Paths idea. One of the biggest changes is that glyphs will now have three categories rather than just Major and Minor. This new intermediary level (currently called ‘medium’ which will no doubt change between now and launch) will essentially help give players a lot more flexibility in terms of which glyphs they choose rather than there being 2 or 3 awesome glyphs that everyone from a given class uses.

Major glyphs will still focus primarily on core rotational abilities, while the new intermediary level might give you something like a Glyph of Ice Block. In other words, they’ll augment abilities not necessarily considered to be “core” to your class in terms of DPS or healing, but will still provide a much broader means of customizing which of your skills you want to add additional benefits or effects to.

They glyphs U.I. has also seen some much needed improvements in terms of the information given to players. Currently, the only way to know which glyphs your class has available is to either search the auction house or exit the game to find the information on the web. In Cataclysm, glyphs will all be listed directly within the U.I. for your current class, removing a lot of the guesswork from the process of figuring the system out.
