WoW Cataclysm: Death Knight Preview
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer has posted a new preview of Blizzard Entertainment's Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft. Cataclysm 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.

Cataclysm talent trees are significantly less muddled. Most of the passive defenses have been removed from Frost and Unholy and given to Blood. Each of these trees were compensated for the loss of an active ability by receiving a powerful active damage dealing cooldown.

One of the most notable changes is the removal of some of the area of effect abilities. Wandering Plague, which is arguably the most powerful passive AoE in the game, is gone. Talents that passively increased diseases like Crypt Fever have also disappeared. This is not surprising, however, given the systematic nerfing and removal of AoE abilities that has been going on in the Cataclysm Beta.
