Anything about Thousand Needles being underwater, as predicted with all the other stuff that turned out to be true?I'm stoked for the expansion - sounds like a lot of fun.

And Gilneas looks awesome! I'm a little disappointed that new quests there are only to 15, but I suppose that with the cataclysm, there are tons of new quests throughout Azeroth that will take up leveling time. Any sense that they'll be doing anything to change the experience in Outland, or will that remain as it was/is?

If Thousand Needles is going to be flooded, then that would mean that Feralas and Dustwallow Marsh would need to be under, too.

mtsadowski: That's not necessarily true. The cataclysm could cause the land to change in such a way that the Thousand Needles area is at a lower elevation than the land surrounding it.

"If Thousand Needles is going to be flooded, then that would mean that Feralas and Dustwallow Marsh would need to be under, too. "Not at all. Dustwallow Marsh is at the same elevation as the Barrens, which is noticeably higher than Thousand Needles (as evidenced by The Great Lift). Similarly, from Thousand Needles, the terrain slopes *upward* into Feralas, though there are areas to the south that are at a similar elevation to Thousand Needles. My bet, though, is on major geographical change rather than sea level.
