Are any of the old factions starting zones updated yet? If so how are they?Been hearing a lot about the Goblins and the Worgen and i've seen a tiny bit of the troll one are the rest of them the same so far?

There are streams of the starting zones, all of them are essentially the same except for a few quests added here and there.

I've done a hint of the tauren startup. It has been changed. Shrunk the questing space around Narache, so it's not so huge. And you dont have to do such a huge run around to bloodhoof. I havent gone beyond that. But there's also a new little village in the far north, so I suspect there's more there. Let alone likely a breadcrumb quest and a shuttle-ride into Stonetalon or something.

gnome starting got implemented in the last patch, worgen, goblin and troll are mostly finished, lacking a few cutscenes. all the others have changed in the details (like blackrock orcs replacing defias in northshire) but most of the general quest frames for the zones remain the same.

Totalbiscuit's Youtube channel has some great videos of all the new areas; you'll find them on his "Totalhalibut" channel. P.S. It's so sad to see what's happened to Mulgore. Damn you Deathwing!

by quest frames i mean the model for questing i.e. kill this, kill this and collect its X, collect X on the ground, and escort/retrieve this. they've added a few newer types of quests to starting areas, like in the human you use a extinguisher to put out fire, but they are all basically the same. nicer looking tho, and they're apparently not 100% done.

Gnome starting zone last patch!?!? XDWell on a side note... here's a question for the queue...When is there going to be another live beta stream on WoW.com? I really, really love those.

Speaking of, are we getting new intro cinematics? Some of them (human: "child king", gnome: Gnomeregan, undead: Lich King, blood elves: Sunwell) are now inaccurate while others (troll, orc) seem very outdated.

Yea, we are getting new cinematics, i think they mentioned it in one of the developer chats or something.
