    His screech was awesome Why do people have to be such babies about trivial crap? Lame.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age"

    I'm very happy with that login screen. It looks like it should satisfy the screeching haters, he doesn't seem to do it often at all.

    i really do not know alot about fire mages - never really came across them in PVP before... but at the moment they 0wn the living shite out of me (enhancement shammy) - i just cannot get anywhere near a decent pld 1... cannot get onto it... and thats with full PVP talents, wolves everything.,.. they have so much control.... and their damage is insane, so really great to see :

    Mage (Forums / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
    Fire

    * Molten Shields now causes your Blazing Speed effect to also removes any movement slowing effects.
    * Blazing Speed now dispells all effect that prevent movement.

    Seriously blizzard.... giving them increased ways to avoid being near a mellee.... like its needed!!!

    And not a damned thing for Enhancement, blizzard is taking the piss quite frankly

    Aww Unholy nerf. Well, I guess that was needed.
    Also nice changes to resto druids, especially the 10 min CD rebirth

    Damn, I liked my ability to occasionally not get feared by bosses I'll miss my shadow resistance racial

    Seems like a number of nerfs for ferals, hope they are all justified. Although I feel that Swipe was already pretty weak.

    The new loading screen is awesome. But what I don't like about it is:

    -Its too zoomed in, Deathwing looks almost Caricature-like
    -I hate how hes facing the [our] right, so used to the WotLK loading where the dragon faces the left...
