    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)

    Though I'd like the FoS, as someone else said, do you really want to have a achi that said you stood in the fire as a serious raider? (a)

    The two major reasons people needed to portal from Dalaran to a major city, auction house and class trainers, have been added to the city. So really, those portals have become pointless.

    So, what IS a good way to get [Stood in the Fire]? Considering the time frame we've got I'd hate not getting it.

    Also, does anyone know if 4.0.3a will have any new achievements available? I need something to pass the time! Everything I've read about it so far includes announcements about guild achievements not being in there, but I want to know about personal achievements!

    New race-class combinations (excluding worgen/goblin)
    Yeah !

    On the ptr, the new Loremaster system was on there(i.e the individual zone quest number) so I'm guessing so.
