What happens with the Warcraft timeline? If a new character is leveling in this new Cataclysm Azeroth which occurs after WotLK how do they explain going to Outland then Northrend the back to the Catalysm?

They probably wont.Every DK goes through their starting down and then back in time to Outland for ten levels before going to Northrend. It'll probably remain the same next time around.

With the revamping of old zones, I wouldn't be surprised if you were able to get to 70 without going through outland.

The example maps from Blizzcon that show the level ranges and levelling path through the zones suggests 1-60 in old Azeroth.I'm wondering whether Northrend will entirely escape the cataclysm, because NR would be the perfect place to add in some new 60-70 quests (as well as its 70-80 ones) in some slightly altered zones, so the playing experience is more fluid... rather than having to leave Azeroth to go to Outland which no longer has a very strong connection (through current and future storylines it seems) to Azeroth. However, that would mean skipping almost an entire expansion's worth of material, which would be bad for the devs at Blizzard (all that hard work wasted for new players not going there) and bad for new players who will still have to buy TBC but not really play any of it other than rolling a Belf or Draenei.
