This week we get caught up on Blizzcon and the flurry of Blue Posts to hit the forums, Thespius’ cat gets its own segment, and Seven tries his best to keep his manly voice in check. Sorry, it’s just one of those shows again.

While most pugs wont take survival talents, we feel most good raid leaders and guilds will use them.
Beta Raid Difficulty
Normal raids are currently too easy (with a few exceptions). You’ll likely be seeing substantial buffs across the board.
Raid Heroic Mode
You will have to complete the Normal mode of a raid dungeon once before you can switch to Heroic the next week.

Deathwing will randomly choose territories in Azeroth to attack each day until his ruinous reign is brought to an end. A blackened sky will be the only warning before every living creature caught in his approach is consumed by his terrible fire. The unfortunate victims of his malice will receive a rare Feat of Strength… as well as a repair bill and corpse run.
Outdoor Group Bosses In Cata
There are a COUPLE of these bosses in Cataclysm, but they’re not true outdoor raid bosses. They’re just much harder group bosses that drop heroic dungeon level items and specialty items. Have fun!
[...] these aren’t outdoor raid bosses. A good STRONG 5 player group should be able to handle these bosses, but you certainly have the option to make a raid and give it a shot as well. Good luck.
Cataclysm Raid Progression
Below is the basic progression map.
*Normal Dungeons/Crafting/Questing to get full set of 85 blues (non-heroic) to do Heroic dungeons.
*Heroic dungeons to get full set of 85 Heroic blues to do Normal mode raids.
*Normal raids to get full set of 85 epics (non-heroic) to do Heroic mode raids.
*Heroic Raids to get full set of 85 Heroic epics, which will presumably help a bit on Sinestra and the next tier (when released with patch 4.1.0)
*Badge vendors to help fill in gaps at all tier levels.
*No real gating to speak of for ship.
*Sinestra opens after Cho’gall is defeated on HEROIC mode. No timers or attempt limits, but she will pound you relentlessly. She has better than Heroic epic level gear (half a tier better).
