Is anyone selected strictly from the opt-in pool even in beta yet or are all current beta testers in from keys from other sources?

I believe the only folks in Beta right now are the Alpha folks, and people with keys from BlizzCon '07.

Can you pretty please with sugar on top verify or deny this...

Was Paladin agi -> dodge formula at lv70 changed from
25 = 1%
to
30 = 1%

Was Druid agi -> dodge @70 changed from
14.7agi = 1% dodge
to
30agi = 1% dodge
(*I specifically care about bearform...there is a chance this was not applied to bear form and I was hearing about a cat/caster form change.)

Basically wotlk.info had an old beta thread about how all the tanking classes had their agi to dodge formula changed to match warriors....I've heard this repeated in hearsay but never from a direct tester that was sure of themselves (*best I have is a tester going on about there possibly being changes)

NOTE: If you can't check it at level 70, find a like level warrior and test against him with a shaman dropping a str/agi totem. See if you both gain the exact same ammount of dodge (*careful of kings or other all stats modifying talents/buffs)

Unfortunately, I'm already lvl 71 (close to 72) so I can't put the theory to the test anymore. I also don't have a lvl 70 druid to test with either. However, if I see anything on the beta forums regarding this issue I'll be sure to pass it along.

I edited this in after...but I'll do it again :)

Sooooo if you could find a lv 71 warrior and give yourselves both the same agi change (*scrolls or shaman totems) and just be careful of all stats modified talents / buffs (like kings)

How's this:

At lvl 71, naked, I have 78 agi and 3.38% dodge.

With BoK, I have 85 agi, and 3.65% dodge.

So, 7 agi = .27% dodge.

Based on some rough math, it looks like at 71, ~25agi = 1% dodge.

Actually, it's ~25.93 agi = 1% dodge according to your numbers.

I know, but that's the difference between "unchanged" and "definitely going towards a new scaling number at 80" (which isn't particularly surprising, I'll admit)

Hasn't Agi->Dodge always changed with level though? It needs to scale just like ratings do. Looks like it's still 25 at 70 from those numbers, so a good tell would be how much it takes at the level cap (is it 77 now?)
