World Of Warcraft Cataclysm Class Changes Are Coming

What comes with those extra experience levels in World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion? Blizzard will be releasing info on new spells, new skills and talent tree changes this week for all classes - except the Paladin, because Paladins suck.

World of Warcraft players have been eagerly awaiting news of the new skills and spells they'll be rocking in Cataclysm since the expansion was first revealed, a couple of weeks before BlizzCon 2009. Blizzard is ready to show you the future, rolling out information on the updates for nine of the game's 10 classes this week.

Tomorrow they'll be dropping information on the Shaman, Priest and Warlock. Thursday we'll get the skinny on the Warrior, Death Knight and Rogue. Then on Friday, look for news about the Hunter, Druid and Mage.

As for the Paladin, well, he's still deep in development, according to Blizzard blue poster Bashiok, and won't be ready for the big reveal until April 16th at the earliest.

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 honour 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.

To paraphrase in an incredibly irresponsible manner, what he is trying to say here is that no one wanted to work on the Paladin, because they are jerks. They're probably only working on them now in fear of being fired for insubordination.

I might have interpreted that message incorrectly, but it makes sense to me.

Cataclysm Class Information Coming! [WoW Forums via]


    I'd like you to say that paladins suck to my face! Stupidface!

      Wow, you just proved the man right. :)

    How about some information on the new races? I'm especially interested in being a Worgen.

    I haven’t played WoW since the second expansion was announced, does anyone know if the death knight really kicked off as a character?, because my friends that still play say that people just skip over it. Anyone know if a lot of these death knights are on Aussie servers?.

    Oh and, Shaman FTW!

      DKs are everywhere. You can't go anywhere without either seeing one being levelled up or in your heroic grinding at 80.

    Yeah, damn those paladins!

    Always winning everything and being better than everyone, and such...

    Yeah DKs are a smashing success. They are great as either tank or dps. Also you see as many around as other classes at least. Also they are definitely for the more advanced player, they have a steeper learning curve, even if by the end they match up with other classes in terms of complexity.
