I'm too lazy to look up the original post, someone feel free to link it if you can find it. But here's the rundown and I don't think it's changed too much since it was posted back in mid-September:Patch 4.0.1 will launch several weeks before Cataclysm ships, similar to 2.0.1 and 3.0.2. It will include:- New launcher- Class changes- Stat changes- Currency changes- Talent tree overhaul- Glyph changes- Reforging- Mastery (although it might not be useful until Cataclysm)- Mount speeds scale up, including 310% flying if you already have onePatch 4.0.3 will launch shortly before Cataclysm ships. Based on what Tom Chilton and others have said, this will include (without purchase of Cataclysm):- Cataclysm intro cinematic and login screen- Revamped classic Eastern Kingdom and Kalimdor zones- New race/class combinations for existing races- Graphics improvements (water, etc)Cataclysm will ship shortly afterward and buying it will unlock:- Level 85 level cap- 525 Profession skill caps- Goblins and Worgen, and their starter zones- New Level 80+ zones, dungeons, heroics, raids- New battlegrounds- Rated battlegrounds- Flying mounts in Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor- Archaeology- 310% speed flying skill for purchase- Guild leveling systemI would read 4.0.3 as 4.0.3a now. Looking it over a few things have been shuffled (purchase of 310% flying speed, lack of loading screen), but the major points remain as stated.
