Blizzard has released another information for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm today. They've revealed the new abilities and changes coming to five player classes.
You can find the full previews for the Mage, Druid, Hunter, Rogue, and Death Knight on the official WoW forums. The new class abilities include a Heroism-like spell called "Time Warp" for Mages and a "Smoke Bomb" for Rogues that shields against ranged attacks. At level 85, hunters get "Camouflage" which is essentially an in-combat stealth mode.
Death Knights' tanking is undergoing a major revision, and Blizzard felt the need to write up another forum post specifically addressing that issue. Instead of spreading tanking talents throughout different talent trees, they're going to be moved to the "Blood" tree to make that the tanking spec.
Over the past two days, Blizzard also released previews for the Shaman, Warrior, Priest, and Warlock classes. Paladins are said to be "deep in development" and as such, information on their Cataclysm capabilities won't be available until next week.
