Good thread, Sammew. Aside from content, also included in the upcoming patch are several class balance changes and bug fixes. Due to several talent revisions for select classes, druids, paladins, priests, and shaman will have their talent trees reset.

Experience required to gain levels 71 through 80 is being reduced by 20%.

You'll also get the Cataclysm introductory cinematic and new login screen.

Official Forums
All forums are now read only. We'll see you over at the new site! (Source)

Onyxian Whelpling
It was a pet rewarded to any characters that logged on during the 5th year anniversary. While some special pets are account-wide and mailed on new character creation, the Onyxian Whelpling was not one of them. (Source)

Loremaster in Cataclysm
We hope to release more details about Loremaster tomorrow. Stay tuned! (Source)

Death Knight (Forums / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
Horn of Winter
The behavior you're describing is the result of a bug which will be fixed in the next patch prior to the release of Cataclysm. You will again be able to toot your own horn to gain runic power, you just won't get the Attack Power benefit if a similar buff is already present. (Source)

    With this patch, does the new quests for the low level zones come as well?

    Yes they do, even I Punched Deathwing (or whatever is it called) in Badlands, also the third goblin area (Azshara) has all the quests, I recommend doing them, they are a ton of fun!

    The quest is titled "The Day that Deathwing Came". It is so epic, I wish it was available to do multiple times on one character.

    those classes suck and the players who play those need some sorta compensation.

    Mine was reset as a DK, at least on PTR, but that may be standard.

    Where did you read this? Where is that information coming from? They just said that there were going to be class trainers where the portals used to be.

    Fuck Blizzard and their fucking system. They removed all class-specific quests - you can pick up the Paladin quest chain - but you can't complete it because the quest disappears if you enter the dungeon you need to do to finish it. GOD FORBID they let you do a fucking quest chain you can pick up.

    I wish they put a neutral AH in both those cities. Since they are main resting towns for 2 expansions now. It will boost up cross fraction AH translations by a lot. If your on a low pop for your side you might find the same item cheaper from the other side.

    I got priest on the personality test.

    Wasn't trying for it. Is my class and only class that interests me. It works pretty well.

    Seriously what's the news on the revision changes? All this talk about 20% XP increase (k it's 20% increase, all you need to know). Really curious as to why that's being listed with absolutely no detail on what is being changed.

    If you have the item for the onyxian whelpling, but never USED it, the item itself is BoA, so you can still give it away if you want. It just disappears on use.
    I don't think that's entireley accurate.
    The onyxian whelpling does not disappear on use, at least not for me.
    Yes it is BoA though.
    My bank character has one and i trade it to every alt i make, learn the whelpling, and then trade it back to my bank toon.
