Cataclysm may be closer than we'd imagined -- or at least according to the PTR realm. The latest PTR client is labeled 18.104.22.16824, and is a whopping 16GB of information. While the PTR servers are not live, you can still download the latest version of the PTR client by visiting the official website.
Is this the Cataclysm patch, or the pre-Cataclysm patch? That's also unknown at this time -- until the servers go live, there's no clue as to whether this is all of the information for the Cataclysm changes, or pre-Cataclysm event information. Considering the fact that we got a glimpse into a small quest line in the Patch 3.3.5 PTR that was quickly removed, I've got my hopes up that we'll see a reintroduction of the storyline, as well as more regarding Deathwing's sudden and violent entrance into Azeroth.
