Cataclysm reforging guide

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Reforging has landed on the US servers and is due to land tomorrow on the EU. This is going to be a short and sweet guide on the user interface for reforging. I’ll stick up some images of the interface and breakdown the concepts and uses of reforging.

Lets start off with the concepts. Reforging allows you to change one minor stat on any item of equipment you have. By minior stat I mean secondary stats such as hit rating, haste etc. It allows you to swap 40% of any secondary stat for another secondary stat. The process of reforging is done by NPC’s in capital cities. Just ask a guard if you want to find out where they are hiding!  Its going to be great to finally get rid of all that bloody unwanted hit rating.

Check out the screenshots of the user interface for reforging after the break.

4.0.1 Cataclysm water effects

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Patch 4.0.1 is introducing the new water effects engine Blizzard has designed for Cataclysm.  Its a much needed upgrade if you ask me.  I can remember loading up Morrowind back in the day (was it 2002?) and even that had pixel shaded water effects!  The video below shows off the effects.  The question is will my gaming machine be able to handle the effect?  I hope it is, or I’m off to buy yet another graphics card, lol.

Hit Scaling In Cataclysm

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Thanks to our friendly neighbourhood crab, hit scaling in Cataclysm is now looking a lot less confusing and mysterious than it once was. In a recent conversation on the forums, Ghostcrawler gave a detailed look at the hit scaling, explaining how characters get more powerful, and how boss levels work. It would appear that bosses get more powerful as the raid tiers go up. That way, players chase a new hit cap with each new tier in raiding.

It’s a neat way of doing things. By the time the Lich King fell many raiders were swimming in hit when they simply didn’t need it. The hit cap never increased, but the amount of hit on gear did. The system coming into play in Cataclysm should stop the same thing happening again.

Ghostcrawler’s posts are available for all to see here:

Cataclysm release date?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I can’t believe we missed this one.

mmo-champion reported a couple days back that it believes the launch date for Cataclysm is the first week of November.  November 2nd to be exact.

This is not a blind guess either, we know they have certain ‘contacts’ shall we say.  They however do state that this is in line with the outlined plan for pre Cataclysm events.  That being the next part of the pre Cataclysm event will most likely happen in around 2-4 weeks time.
