lvl 85, Twilight Highlands, Uldum, Felwood, Thousand Needles all confirmed in this patch
holy shit balls i might have to go back to arms with that Sweeping Strikes buff
SQUEE! Maybe this was already known, but the fact that Lord Godfrey's going to be a boss in SFK makes me dance with glee. I was beyond pissed when he got away with suicide, when I was itching to kill him so damn bad. This has made my WEEK.
What a day for me. First, I get LK down finally on Live, and then we get Level 85 testing open on the Beta.
Happy, happy days!!

In general the Paladin changes really make me sad, but I haven't been too happy with a most of the changes they've been making to Paladins, so it's really not surprising ... Most of the other stuff looks promising (or in the case of some class changes, I don't know enough to make up my mind :P), but I am less and less excited about taking my Paladin main from 80-85 all the time.
EDIT: and ZG gone? wtf?? :'(

They are buffing aoe damage because there will be fights where aoe will be used, it will be a strategy not THE strategy, and it will require groups to think about what their doing and choosing aoe or CC will be choices that will make or break an encounter and to be honest I'm glad, as a warlock in a heroic I could use seed of corruption and nothing else, even on bosses, and it makes no difference which is a problem.
Healers are going to be about healing intelligently not constantly, you're gonna have free GCDs in cata, this is where you throw in some damage spells which through talents somehow benefit your healing or mana regen, paladins are probably the best off in terms of mana regen with the seal of truth that gives you mana back just for beating on an enemy with your weapon in addition to their blessing of might. They want to get healers more involved in the combat, I know how it is, I'm usually staring at my healbot window making sure everyone is being kept alive and only occasionally glancing at the fight to make sure I'm not standing in fire or something.

Given that Deadmines and SFK are recycled, does this list mean that there will only be 7 new 5-mans in Cataclysm? Sounds a little low to me.

Seems to me that Blzzard are deliberately delaying the release of the Cataclysm module in order to generate more hype and hysteria amongst the WoW fanatics. (thats us M8s)so when release day comes eveyone will anxiously line up with money in hand to buy there copy.
