Cataclysm Beta

I was finally able to get the Cataclysm Beta installed, I ended up having to completely reinstall World of Warcraft, since the Cataclysm Beta requires the retail version to be installed, and part of mine install was corrupt. Then after spending hours wondering why I couldn't log in, I realized the beta invite was for my second WoW account, which is on the same Battle.net account. XD

I got my 85 premade rogue set up for a tanking run. The dodge chance ended up being much lower than my current rogue, around 20% compared to 48%, but with 85K health Recuperate was ticking for 5.1K health every 3 seconds. So now I can tank forever as long as I don't take more than around 1.7K dps. Unfortunately when I went to do runs through Lich King instances, they were all unavailable. :(

So I switched over to my current rogue, and set out to explore the new content. There was a starting quest that I received that directed me to the new port at the northern end of the east coast of Durotar. The boat there took me to Vashj'ir, where I got pulled under by some sea creature, and began questing underwater. The first thing you get is the ability to breathe underwater, with an underwater mount coming soon after.

 Unfortunately I haven't spent much time leveling, so I haven't gotten past the first area. Hopefully I will be running some instance soon, on one of these characters.
