Cataclysm beta testing is officially over

After countless months of hard work, number-crunching, and bug reporting, Blizzard's Zarhym has announced that beta testing for Cataclysm is officially over:


We're just about two weeks out from the official global launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm! And with that, the time has come to conclude the beta test. We will be shutting down our beta realms momentarily. We want to sincerely thank all of you for your dedication to testing, providing feedback, reporting bugs, and everything else you've done to help us make this expansion the best World of Warcraft title to date.

Stay tuned to our new community site (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/) for the latest news and updates as we get closer to release. We'll see you in Cataclysm!


With The Shattering right on the horizon and Cataclysm only two short weeks away, Blizzard has enough information to comfortably ease into the next expansion.

Don't worry, everyone -- you'll see your goblin or worgen soon enough.

World Of Warcraft Is Changing Forever Tomorrow And So Are We!! (Added everything a bit early, we are excited as well)

Out with the old in with the new, we have 3 changes to announce.

1. A brand new header you wanted it we finally made it, we had many different design's but given the circumstances i think this one was the best.

2. And the bigger change (some of you might have seen our preview for it two days ago) we have a brand new Cataclysm Preview page right now it has the 4.0.3a changes in photo and video form  its not completely finished but it never will be to be honest.
This page will be updated all the time for as long as we have new stuff to show you so probably every patch or so.
To get there click on the Cataclysm Button under the header.


3.This didn't even see it through its first month, we are scrapping the Book Of The Month idea.  I will put out a review for The Shattering after that the feature will go on hold.  Will we bring it back? maybe but right now is a busy time for everyone and we wanna focus on Cataclysm.

Let's confirm this, yes, Patch 4.0.3a will be deployed on live servers this week and will change the world of Azeroth forever. You only have a few hours left to say good bye to the old world (and farm try to get that stupid mount in Zul'gurub) before Deathwing decides that it needs a new look. All the information and the official patch notes are available below.

Get ready for the biggest change you ever witnessed in World of Warcraft, and enjoy!

<Crit craft changes added by tonight> more on that later.......
