I think that people read a bit too far into the whole 'while we are still battling Arthas' part. I think the main thing to consider is that really Blizzard don't want to make a series of 'endings'. I mean, how would it look for us to kill Arthas off and then be able to go back halfway through Cataclysm and we're still having all the same problems. lorewise it fits better for Arthas to at least be alive at the same time, even if we still kill him.I also think that with cataclysm and WOTLK intended as running in parallel chronologically, we'll see a lot of new characters. no more reusing old generals and majors from Outland. I better see a nsingwary somewhere though -.-As for a prediction, i think around june-August 2009 is a safe bet, assuming a December/Jan 3.3 release.Also, people seem to have missed a point. Yes, Vanilla WoW has been around for 5 years. and that means that it doesn't have the pulling power it used to. many people would have tried a trial, and either thought yay or nay, and acted on it. so people have made up their minds. Cataclysm can pull a whole lot of the latter category back to try the game again, see the differences and see what they make of it, which asically resets Blizzard's target audiences.
