Cataclysm Class Information Coming!

Beginning Wednesday, April 7 we will begin releasing class previews containing an overview of some of the changes currently being planned for each of the 10 World of Warcraft classes. The type of information you can expect from these posts are a list of the new spells from 80-85, the new passive mastery bonuses for all talent trees, a brief outline of some of the talent changes we're currently planning, and in some cases new low level spells for select classes.

These changes will by no means be comprehensive, and are subject to change between now and the launch of the expansion. It's also important to understand that some classes are currently further along in the development process than others, and as a result the amount of information will vary from class to class. Please do not let this frustrate you should your class be amongst those which are on the "lighter" side of things, as all classes will receive the same level of design attention before the expansion is released. Additionally we'll be providing more information for all classes, especially as we move into the beta phase.

Below is the schedule for each class:

Shaman - Aptil 7 Cataclysm Class Preview - Shaman http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=12947352584
Warlock - April 7 Cataclysm Class Preview - Warlock http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=12947352666

Priest - April 8
Warrior - April 8

Death Knight - April 9
Rogue - April 9
Hunter - April 9

Druid - April 10
Mage - April 10

Paladin - April 16*


These posts are being coordinated internationally so they'll be posted at different times throughout the day and night on the given dates to give players around the world the ability to see posts made at a convenient time. This thread will be updated with links directly to each class preview as they're posted.

*The paladin is still deep in development. Instead of giving a preview that would be potentially less comprehensive than the other classes we made the decision to post it when it's ready, in order to properly honor the paladin class and those that play them. The wait isn't too long however as we're expecting to be able to post it on April 16.

Q u o t e:
Heya Ancilon, would it be possible to inform us why was the post edited by vaneras and then the dates were changed on some classes?

Is it because of the timezone diferences between US/EU, or the schedule was indeed changed by the US guys to only be released tomorrow (8th april, in case of warlocks and priests, that was on the 7th).

Thanks for the clears-up.
The post was corrected due to a technicality. When the post goes live it will be the the 7th in the US but the 8th here in Europe (at least in the CEST timezone). We've not delayed the post, just corrected the posting date due to this technicality.

Q u o t e:
Yes but blizzard unless I misinterpreted blizzard said they would be posting it at different times to accommodate for time differences. They've failed to do that. Now I don't know about you but having the info released late at night isn't a convenient time for me. Maybe you're nocturnal I don't know but it's certainly seems like it's going to be released at like midnight or something.
My guess is that you've misunderstood. The different 'class reveals' will go live at different times. The Priest/Warlock reveals will be during the early hours of CEST. The next may be during the early hours of DST which would mean it'd be posted during daylight hours CEST. Confusing? Perhaps. But the fairest way possible to avoid as much of the 'zomgs this is not fair' posts. Avoiding them entirely isn't possible, though. :)

Just so you know - if we could bend space and time in order to bring you all the information during your waking hours, we would, but this isn't a movie and we're not kitted out with DeLorean's. :(

Q u o t e:
Can you please confirm this? It's currently 5PM CEST at time of writing, which is not so early hours. Assuming by "this one" you mean the first (shaman) post, which is scheduled for the 7th (today), something has gone terrible wrong with spacetime.
Yeah my attempt at space time folding gubbins failed. I meant the priest/warlock. The shaman one will still go live today and soonβ„’. My apologies for throwing further confusion into the already confusing mix.
