Will http://www.wowhead.com/spell=28272/polymorph (Polymorph Pig) still be available? In fact, is Archmage Xylem still in Azhara?

I'm fairly sure they're just moving the spell to the trainer, at around the same level it's learned from the quest. (Apparently there's one in Dalaran, don't know about everywhere else).http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae148/betakaae/WoWScrnShot_092810_003733.jpgArchmage Xylem is still in Azshara, though he seems to have gone a little mad. He is part of a chain that all classes will do in the zone.

While leveling my mage from 1 to 80 I, like everyone else, did TONS of quests and I don't remember most of them, except the class specific ones. Those were the only ones I was actually paying full attention to the whole story. In particular the ones from Archmage Xylem. If they are going to give away Polymorph: Pig as trainable I will be pissed. I mean, what is the point then? I have been trying to collect all polymorph spells (just missing one, I am looking at you Gahz'ranka, drop it already!). If one will be able to just walk into a room and buy them all from a trainer, I will feel both sad and cheated.I understand maybe reducing the number of them to make room for new ones, but I think the ones that reward special abilities (not gear) should be kept in place.

While I might be biased because I took the time to actually get Pig quest done, I'd rather see Polymorph (Pig) made unavailable instead of given to every lowbie mage that gets bored with his sheep. They've already given mages penguins and monkeys to play with for 'free' (at least as effort goes), why not leave a few of the aesthetic, non-essential spells as tokens of pride for us who went through the effort?

The spells have has their time and place to be special, and now they're going to be easy accessible. That's the way things go in wow, and really, it's a fairly smart system. Blizzard doesn't want you to rest on your past glory, they want you to have to go to current content if you want to feel like a special snowflake. And thus they don't need to toss away old cool stuff and waste their work, while providing subtle motivation for those who feel slighted to find some other cool new thing they can peacock with. Seems like a sharp move on their part.
