Cataclysm Comes Early
Posted on October 13th, 2010 by Grim

Well, not literally…

With the recent 4.0.1 patch to World of Warcraft yesterday, a lot of the new functionality for spells and talents has been implemented.  You can throw a rock and hit a website with commentary on the changes, but suffice to say that if you haven’t updated your addons in a while, you’re going to be in for a rude awakening when you next log in.

Be prepared for:

  • Your talents are all reset
  • None of your addons will work correctly
  • Your spells don’t do what they did before.
  • Stat changes are in place (no more spell hit or defense, etc)
  • Your gems are all different (and will almost certainly need to be replaced)

Between Reforging and Re-Gemming my items, I spent around 4k gold last night. (In fairness, I did a bit of theorycrafting)  You’ve been warned.
