Update - The first gate is now open on European servers.
Nothing really exciting today for the moment, the 1st gate of Sunwell Plateau will probably unlock today for European Realms and we can expect a first kill from the top guilds *cough*SK ?*cough* here if everything goes well.
Also, nothing is confirmed yet but according to the first rumors the http://beta.worldofwarcraft.com activation a few days ago could be related to the beginning of the very first alpha of WotLK. It will be restricted to developers working on WotLK and a few other people and I doubt we'll get any leaks from that, however it should be followed by the Friend & Family alpha with a lot more people involved. Of course, keep in mind that none of this is officialy confirmed.
This post will be updated to warn european players once the first gate is unlocked. Oh, and we might have something about Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury tomorrow. (Nothing big, but if you plan to loot the bow at some point it's probably worth checking)
Arena Tournament Schedule
There has been some confusion because of an error in a blue post on the European Forums, Thundgot made another post to confirm the schedule.
[blizzquote="Bornakk;http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=5784218971&postId=57838193140&sid=1#3]If you wish to take part in the 2nd qualification round which will take place after the first one finished on May 20, you will need to re-register your account.[/blizzquote"]
And if you still don't know what's the Arena Tournament (where have you been for the past 2 months ?), Vaneras made a small recap.

WotLK and classes changes
According to this post made by Bornakk, it looks like all classes will get their share of changes.
Hunters - Hunter's Mark overwriting
[blizzquote="Hortus;http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=5754688058&postId=57838196605&sid=1#1]This is working correctly, once improved hunter's mark is on a target any Hunter's mark (improved or not) will refresh the duration of the existing mark (not overwrite it). The buff does not change in any way just the duration remaining.[/blizzquote"]
