The harbinger of death and destruction never looked so cute... and with such an impressive chin! 0w0b
Most likely the 6th Anniversary Pet.
Paladins are having the most work done, so it makes sense that they'd start on them as early as possible in order to guarantee that they'll have time to initiate all the changes they want to make and properly balance them. If they started too late, they might find out things aren't working and wouldn't have time to change direction and then they'd have to revamp the class again the next expansion (which is arguably what happened in WotLK).
And speaking as a Paladin, we routinely are last in everything, especially in terms of Cata news up until the Beta was initiated.
At one point the other classes got their previews over the course of a week and we had to wait an entire 'nother week to get ours, so... yeah.
Really don't feel bad at all that the shoes on the other foot now. Sucks feeling left out, doesn't it?

Oh GODS. yet another whole page of warrior QQ.. why do they get SO much attention from the blues?
I don't get why everyone thinks that miniDW is CE pet.
It can be "6 years anniversary" pet, remember anniversry is Nov 21th (or was it 22th?) very close to release date (rumors?) of Cata.
Of course that's the collector's edition pet. Last two were whelps related to the expansion theme.

////I'm unsure how order relates to importance, it's more than likely they're just focusing on a few classes at a time. It'd be difficult, as a developer, to try to think of how to work with the issues of every class all at once.
yeah right.. except it's been since the beta beginning, all the time, tons and tons of warrior's crap, always lots of it and unlike paladins they did not recieve any major overhaul. smells like one huge ass-licking favoritism yet again. Who the hell cares about such a miniscule minor "issues" like enrage uptime or booming voice? It's creeping up close to release and some classes havent even been touched yet, i dont remember so much QA on any other class of yet.
Wrathgate quest....umm what the fudge? 0o
i guess it was expected with no thrall in org seen as garrosh wouldn't help ...but it was the best quest chain in the game the first time you play it was amazing
When did the game become World of PlateCraft?! Because that is what it seems like due to the amount of blue posts on the platewearers. Either warriors and paladins are massive QQers, or those are the only 2 classes that GC knows off the back of his hand (I'm leaning towards the former).
Also, one word: Mankrik.
one man.... in one word
I'm sure part of it is also that their vision of tanking has changed greatly and protection warriors/pallies are comparatively more similar to each other than any of the other tanking specs. Additionally, both can be seen as more 'traditional' in their methodology so they're probably using them as the standard of tanking balance (while, again, trying to differentiate them from each other).

All this Paladin / Warrior discussion is getting really old. I mean, it's great that the blues are going into so much detail regarding their hopes and ambitions regarding these classes, and the problems that arise whilst trying to achieve it, but it just highlights how little discussion the oter classes have received.
The blues are doing the other classes a diservice now. It's not as though Paladins / Warriors have been heavily discussed this recent push. It's been a constant barrage of blue posts on them now for several months. The other classes could use equal attention and discussion with regards to their problems, changes and queries.
Or maybe it's fresh Deathwing child and it will come in next expansion and pwnd Outland, Northrend, and again EK & Kalimdor.
I personally think Mini-chin is going to spawn from Sinestra's lair in the Bastion of Twilight.
Which means we have to kill it.
Until it was revealed, it was secret, and killing something this cute is indeed horrifying.
Damn you Blizzard.
That chin shall rule Azeroth one day, Dorothy.
Anyone else hoping that Southern Barrens turns into a world pvp area like Hillsbrad was between TM and SS?
