A good wow lvl guide will be important to use for helping quickly level up the new Cataclysm alliance Worgen and horde Goblin race characters as well as other character races you have. I wanted to take a moment to cover these two races in more detail since it’s a cool addition to the Cataclysm expansion.
The new alliance combat character race, worgen, has 8 basic classes including mage, priest, rogue, warlock, warrior, druid, hunter and death knight. As typical, the warrior class has the best strength attribute with the exception of the death knight class, which is four times that of the warrior class! Death knight agility is more than three times the warrior agility, has four times more stamina, only about 10 pts higher intellect and about double the spirit attribute. To sum it up, the worgen death knight is fierce! Also a point to mention for those who have not played the Cataclysm beta version yet, there is not yet a working female version of worgen [update: released 10/27/10, female worgen are now playable on Cataclysm beta build 13221 - see image below.]
The worgen has six basic racial abilities. In summary they increase the character’s movement speed by 70% , increase critical strike chance %, cause curse/disease duration reduction, increase skinning skill speed, transform the character from human to worgen form in combat, and four-legged run as fast as a wild animal. These are awesome abilities. My favorite is the transformation visuals from human to worgen.
The new horde combat character race, goblin, has 8 basic classes including mage, priest, rogue, warlock, warrior, shaman, hunter and death knight. As typical, the warrior class has the best strength attribute with the exception of the death knight class, which is 5 times that of the warrior class! Death knight agility is more than 3 times the warrior agility, has about 5 times more stamina, only about 10 pts higher intellect and about double the spirit attribute. To sum it up, the goblin death knight is fierce!
The goblin also has six basic racial abilities. In summary the character has a rocket belt which allows the character to jump forward using the rockets as propulsion, ability to launch your belt rockets at an enemy inflicting X-Y fire damage (24-30 at level 1 and 1654-2020 damage at level 80), increase in attacking & casting speed, always receive best discount regardless of faction standing, and ability to call in a hobgoblin servant which allows you bank access on the spot. These too are awesome abilities. My favorite is the ability to get the best deal on merchandise for other characters. This saves a lot of gold.
I actually have both goblin and worgen characters I’ve been using on Cataclysm beta in addition to other characters I have. I’ve been able to level them up very quickly using my fast leveling guide. I am using a female goblin mage and a male worgen priest. I’ve included the screen shots of these two characters when I first started leveling them. This way you can see what the starting Cataclysm character screens look like (for those of you who haven’t played the beta version yet).
