Starcraft Pulse

Episode 15! Sorry this one took so long. I had my birthday during this past week and was disallowed from even touching any work whatsoever. I finally got it out though, so that’s good! I again had to cut a few pieces of news as Vegas was being a pain and not letting me render it. Mostly happy with this episode, apart¬†from the small sound issues around 5mins. 150 Subscribers, whoohoooo! Like it, favourite it, share it and subscribe! Enjoy ūüėÄ

Cataclysm Beta Build 12875 Part 2

I have to say I did¬†suspect that there would be more changes discovered, I just didn’t realise there would be this many! Here is¬†Part 2 of the Cataclysm Beta Build¬†12875¬†changes. There are quite a few interesting ones here so get comfortable and start reading!¬†¬†¬†¬†

Cataclysm Beta РNew Horde And Alliance Intros

TotalBiscuit has treated us with a video of all of the new Horde and Alliance¬†Intro cutscenes that play when you create your new characters in Cataclysm. The only one missing at the moment is the Goblin one that has not yet been implemented. It’s definitely worth a watch for all the lore buffs out there! See the video below.

Also be sure to check out the other videos in TotalBuiscuit’s Channel, they are sure to entertain!

Cataclysm Glyph Changes

New Glyph Interface

So Blizzard have finally added the new Glyph Interface. It’s looking pretty cool and it seems like it is a lot more user friendly than the way it was before. You can now ‘learn’ glyphs’ once and then you won’t need to ever again. They will be in your spell book for later use, even if you remove them from the slots. I wonder if this will spell the end for the inscription profession? I hope they manage to find something really cool to add to make up for this!¬†See the list of changes below courtesy of MMO-Champion.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

  • The biggest change, Glyphs are no longer a consumable item. You learn them and can swap them at any time after that, without having to buy them again.
  • Prime Glyphs slots have been added
  • All Glyphs are now listed, including the one you didn’t learn yet.
  • You can search for Glyphs, and filter them.

Cataclysm Armor Models

Cataclysm Beta РBuild 12857 Model Updates

Along with this new beta build came a lot of changes that aren’t immedietely¬†visible or documented in the patch notes. Changes like all the cool new models that the guys over at Wowhead have found! You can check their post out for new armor models (Cloth, leather, plate and mail) a few new weapons, mineral veins and I think most importantly, armadillos. See all of that over at Wowhead.com.¬†¬†¬†

New Ghost Wolf Form

The new Arctic Ghost Wolf Form was added in this build. Shamans rejoice! You can see the model here¬†or just follow the link below. Once again, thanks a lot to MMO-Champion for getting that up so quickly! ūüėĬ†

Heroic Shadowfang Keep And Deadmines Coming With Cataclysm

As the title says it seems like, contrary to what Blizzard told us before, we will be seeing the Heroic versions of Shadowfang¬†Keep and Deadmines¬†released with Cataclysm. That’s cool! I can’t wait to get back up in Van Cleef’s grill! ūüėÄ See the official quote below.¬†¬†

Heroics are not ready for testing.  

Heroic Shadowfang Keep and Heroic Deadmines WILL be released with Cataclysm. You will not have to wait for a later patch.

Cataclysm Map Updates

Cataclysm Beta РBuild 12857 Map Updates

Those hardworking guys over at Wowhead¬†have compiled a nice post full of all the new and updated maps in the Cataclysm Beta thus far. It’s really cool to see how some of them have been updated and even cooler to see those old instances we know and love from the top down! Visit the Wowhead¬†post here for more on that or just clicky the link below! There really are a lot of cool maps and it’s definitely worth checking out!¬†¬†¬†¬†

Wowhead Cataclysm Map Update! New Classic / Cataclysm Dungeon + Raid Maps and More!    

More Coming Soon!

I am trying to get previews up of all the new Worgen customization options. Alas, the beta is not cooperating. I am crashing every time I try to create a new Worgen. Hopefully that will be fixed soon so I can get those previews up. Stay tuned for more Cataclysm Beta news!

Thanks again to World of Raids and MMO-Champion for all the updates and news!

An interesting bit of news surfaced today on Blizzard Entertainment’s website. Battle.net Facebook Integration is coming soon, to a Blizzard game and Facebook page near you! Apparently the first step is to give players the ability to quickly and easily add Blizzard gamers who are friends on Facebook to their Battle.net accounts.¬†Blizzard already previously told us that it would be possible to have cross-Blizzard-game friends on Battle.net and now they are taking the ‘always online’ style of gaming to the next level. It is an interesting idea, the chances are this will help¬†Blizzard expand their already impressive userbase even more.

Battle.net Facebook Integration
The action taking place on the battlefield is just one part of the StarCraft II experience — we’re also working to make sure that you can easily connect, communicate, and play with your friends. To help accomplish that, the new version of Battle.net will offer integration with Facebook. This new functionality will start off by allowing you to quickly import Facebook friends into your Battle.net friends list, and additional features will be added over time. For more information, check out the official announcement.

Apparently the new Facebook functionality in Battle.net will be tested in the near future via the ongoing StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty beta test and will be available to all StarCraft II players when the game ships later this year. Information about other Facebook-related features on Battle.net will be announced at a later date. You can see the full official announcement by Blizzard here. I for one am pretty interested in giving this a try when it gets implemented, I just hope none of the World Of Warcraft players on my Facebook friends list start using this any time soon to spam me with their achievements and accomplishments! (When WoW hits Battle.net 2.0) I can already see it looking something like this:

“Sven has reached level 10 and earned the achievement.”
“Sven has cleared Deadmines and earned the achievement.”
“Sven has reached level 20 and earned the achievement.”
“Sven has cleared The Stockades and earned the achievement.”
“Sven has…”

I think you get the idea, it would be rather bothersome if not controlled. (I am sure they have thought of this already, though.)

“We’re pleased to be working with Facebook to integrate their platform with Battle.net to enhance the social-entertainment experience for our players,” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “This new functionality will make it easier than ever to connect with friends on Battle.net and play StarCraft II and future Blizzard Entertainment games together.”
