Highlights, screenshots and development phases for Cataclysm.
- Phase 1 [Complete]: Staff-only Development Realm.
- Phase 2 [Q1, 2012]: Public Test Realm.
- Phase 3 [Q1, 2012]: New Cataclysm realm Greymane 4.3 launch.
- Phase 4 [Q2, 2012]: Open Wrath of the Lich King character transfers to Cataclysm.
Greymane will be the first Cataclysm realm and will continue to be developed after launch. It is important to note that Cataclysm today is as raw and bugged as Wrath of the Lich King was back in 2009. Therefore Wrath of the Lich King realms will continue to be improved and polished and will not be upgraded to Cataclysm anytime in near future. We remain dedicated to keeping our realms healthy, community free of cheaters and selfless devotion to continue providing the definition of quality we introduced back in 2009, and Cataclysm will be no different.
We hope to open character transfers from Wrath of the Lich King realms to Cataclysm by spring 2012. Until then, development will be heavily focused on Greymane. Cataclysm development has a long and bumpy journey ahead and Molten is ready for the challenge.
