World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm

Its the weekend before Cataclysm and I haven't mentioned anything about it really so I thought I'd post about it now. If you have been living in a cave for the past while and have no idea what I'm on about you may want to take a quick look at this:

Pretty cool. They have a more recent trailer that played at the start of the game when they first released a cataclysm patch.

But moving on.

New Races can have new classes. One that I looked at was the human hunter. Humans were my favourite race (were meaning I'm changing it to Worgen) and I thought it was pretty cool what they did with Northshire valley Horde spy's and the old fields have been burnt down. Sort of makes you feel like your getting straight into the action. BUT my favourite feature in Northshire has to be this:

That's right! A mail box! No more running to Goldshire to get any gold/heirlooms

The wow expansion is going to be released on Tuesday 17th December and Blizzard are going to flip the switch at Midnight so you can expect the amount of lag when everyone logs on. I have reserved a copy of mine in a shop and I'm going to collect it Tuesday morning I had already got the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King boxes so I might as well make it 3 in a row. I didn't get the Original WoW box, I just paid for it of their site.

I was also able to get behind the huge waterfall in Northshire Valley. Before cataclysm you couldn't but now I was able to find a way...But one really cool thing I found was this
Look at it closely. Its a school of fish but look in the bottom right it has the name (TESTING) School of fish. There is also 2 camps with no one around...Spooky.

I then went over to the rocks where it leads back down and at night time. It looks awesome.

I didn't get to fish in the school of fish but I'm going to head back there soon and see if gives anything different.

But like I said Cataclysm is coming out on Tuesday. Here are some of the new Features:
  • Two New Playable Races
  • Level Cap Increased to 85
  • Classic Zones Remade
  • New High-Level Zones
  • More Raid Content than Ever Before
  • New Race and Class Combinations
  • Guild Advancement
  • New PvP Zone & Rated Battlegrounds
  • Archaeology (Secondary Skill)
  • Flying Mounts in Azeroth
And much, much more...

I haven't mentioned the goblins since I'm more of an Alliance side kinda guy. I do have horde characters but I never stick with them. I'm going to clear them and Just start with a Goblin and give both new races their own post.
Thats all for now. Thanks for Reading.
