I think it will be interesting to see where they go with the Scarlet Onslaught. From everything we have heard Tirion is going to be reclaiming the Hand which means the events we saw through quests have now passed and supposedly the Scarlets can now see what's going on with Balnazaar and whatnot. If this is the case the Scarlet Onslaught may well now be an ally with whom to grind rep and help actually fight the scourge. I am soooo excited about the Titan mythology showing up in The Dragonblight. Assuming there is a dungeon in the keep and quests surrounding the shrines, all this points straight back to Uldum. I play a dwarf pally as a main so all of this lore that directly affects my character is HUGE.

Interesting. While I am in favor of this, the question would need to be asked, what about doing Scarlet Mon? That is saying if the crusade was taken over and shown their ways. Wouldn't it kind of go against what we're doing in there? Here grind my rep but yo! wait a minute....that shoulder looks JUST like the one herod said was stolen last night. I guess just a lot of updating would have to happen. Could be neat. I really hope blizzard puts some good thought into Wotlk. That all said. The zone looks pretty cool.

@ChuddyThe Storyline in WoW is linear with the way your character levels. As such, by the time you get to Northrend and meet the reformed scarlet crusade, you'll have already defeated the corrupt Scarlet Monastery. When you go back to old world content and do it again, it is essentially "going back in time" and reliving that story.That's why, no matter how many times you kill Herod and take his pants, he is still there and clothed (mostly) when you show up the next time.

Scarlet Onslaught sounds fun either way -- but what about the Argent Dawn? I still have the stupid commission trinket and a few bone fragments sitting in the bank -- am I gonna get to put them to good use in Northrend?(Prolly not -- just as Cenarion Circle rep made no difference to the members of the Cenarion Expedition, but I just want my favorite old-world faction to make a reappearance and have an impact on Northrend.)

CMs have said that Argent Dawn rep won't be a factor b/c they don't want to give old players such a large advantage. Which is ok with me, only 2 of my characters made it above Revered (only 1 to exalted) so I have no problem not grinding that out for the rest of them hehe.
