Any idea if the achievement changes go into effect with the 4.0.1 pre-Cata patch or will they only be updated to these new ones with the launch of Cata itself? I'm not worried about those that clearly require Cata content, but in anticipation of the changes to Loremaster, I'm wondering if I should really pick up the pace and finish Outlands. I've got EK and Kal done as well as Northrend, so anything that will significantly change is already taken care of, but I'm just not sure if I should race through Outlands now or if I'll have an extra few weeks after the pre-patch drops (which I'm predicting for October 5 btw, coincidentally the end of Brewfest).

I think the new achievements will go live with the Cataclysm content patch (in much the same way that the achievement system, and plenty of Wrath-related achievements, went live in the Wrath content patch during BC before the expansion actually became available), but I wouldn't worry too much about Loremaster. If you already have the sub-achievements for Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, and Northrend, from what GC's said those aren't going to be taken away from you even if the requirements for them have increased, e.g. if you get the Loremaster of the Eastern Kingdoms achievement with 756 quests, you'll still have that achievement even if the content patch increases the number of required quests to 802 or whatever. And either way, Outland achievements aren't likely to change much.So as long as you've got the sub-achievements for the affected continents (EK and Kalimdor), you should be fine. It's really the people who are close to being finished with one or both who stand to get caught short by the requirement changes.
