While I’m not actually at California, I can discuss what exactly happened during the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm trailer.

One thing is that the Monk is the next class released for Diablo 3.  Interesting.  The trailers were fascinating to watch; the first one outlining a trap from a deceiving demon, and then him beating it up.  The second,

Some things mentioned:

  • Level Cap at 85.
  • Heroic Version of Deadmines and Wailing Caverns.
  • New race/class combinations, most already discussed on the MMO-Champion website.  The ones featured on the trailer were:
    • Human hunter
    • Tauren paladin
    • Gnome priest
    • Troll druid
  • Goblin for Horde, Worgen for Night Elf (finally, some closure on that chain out in Ashenvale regarding that Scythe of Elune).
  • Secondary Profession, Archeology.
  • Revamped old-world content.
    • Desolace is now green and full of life!
    • Some zones, like the Barrens and Stonetalon were rocked by a huge crevice and a lot of lava.
    • Some strange underground world with a purple drake…?
  • Flying mounts in Azeroth!
  • Addition of 500+ quests to the game.
  • Deathwing is totally back for realz this time.
  • New instances in the older zones…
  • A guild leveling/achievement system (like Warhammer Online)?

All of this is exciting.  If I see anything else, I’ll record it as the day goes on.
