it can't be as late as some people are suggesting and a seriously doubt it will be 2011i expect 3.3 at around Xmasafter that the cloak starts ticking because thats the end of Wotlk (there will be no otehr major Wrath content patch and they've said so repeatability) and there's a limit as to how long Blizzard will let people wait without new content because people get bored and develop itchy feeti expect 4.0 by the spring or early summer 2010ive seen one of the devs in an interview saying they were working on this since before Wrath shipped (or some remark like that) we've seen previews of most of the dungions which basically means bar testing they are done and as someone pointed out a lot of this expasion is simply editing work rather than raw creation (desolace is exactly the same just with grass and trees for example, ashenvale forest will be mostly the same only with settlementsaand quest hubs moved around and so on )

Actually they need to fully recreate the old world zones in their new editing software so that they can let flying mounts work. It is a TON of work. Even for zones that are not supposed to change at all. Sure there are semi-automated conversion tools, but each zone still needs to be inspected manually.

What rubbish - That's like saying you have a document in Notepad and you want it in Word so you'll type it all out again. Just load it in Word and add the fancy bits. The Azeroth terrain isnt in the wrong "format" for flying - its just that bits you'd never see when walking, riding or on taxi were never finished neatly - if you could fly then they would become visible and ruin the immersive effect of the landscape. They just need to fix these "blank" areas.
