wotlk beta update level 80 cap, dk starting zone, flying, heroic dungeons, glyphs

Blizzard just updated the WotLK Beta Client to build 44369. This version finally increases the level cap to 80, so players will be able to test the full Wrath of the Lich King questing experience, and try out every single spell added in the expansion.

But that’s not all — this build adds a whole host of other features. Specifically, Blizzard mentions that the following are this build’s focus:

  • Flying In Northrend
  • Normal and Heroic Max-Level Dungeons
  • Questing/Level-up Experience
  • Northrend Zones
  • Dungeons
  • New Spells, Talents, and Abilities
  • Death Knight Starting Experience
  • New Systems and Features:
    • Revamped Group Finder
    • Vehicles
    • Quest phasing
    • Glyphs and Inscription
      • Update: We’ve placed additional Glyph Vendors in Shattrath near A’dal

The main thing that players will be excited for is of course the increase of the level cap to 80, which finally allows us to play around with all of our new tools — level 80 spells and glyphs included. We can finally get an idea of how close private servers were to OG Wrath as well, as we can now fully gear up level 80 characters and test their damage against dummies.

As a Classic WoW veteran it’ll also be very interesting to me to see how this new Group Finder interface that Blizzard has been developing pans out. At the very least I hope it replaces the various Bulletin Board type addons that have surfaced in WotLK, but I’m excited to see what it can potentially evolve into, now that it’s in the players’ hands.


Are you excited about this new WotLK Beta build? Will you be leveling up a character to level 80, or would you rather avoid spoiling the experience before WotLK Classic releases? Let us know in the comments below!
