"To be honest, I sincerely hope Blizzard doesn't try to Sunwell this expansion. Cataclysm must go out on Deathwing's demise. He was the villain all expansion long, and we put him in the ground."I agree, but I think it may be a question of whether Blizz can deliver an expac as soon as everyone hopes. I see a lot of people clamoring for MoP in Summer 2012, but unless it is a small xpac, I don't see how that can happen... unless the Alpha testing is far more extensive and secret than we know.If they can't deliver (and I freely admit I don't know if they can or not), WoW may have to create some sort of placeholder patch like Argent Tournament or Sunwell to hold people over.

I'm not sure how I feel about the idea of an additional patch between now and MoP.On the one hand, I agree with Amaxe, we may be in for a long wait. Which means I'll be able to run my stable of alts through all the content they haven't played through just yet. On the other hand, I'm not sure I want to wait until summer for MoP or new content, so if they could add something, it doesn't have to be a boss, it could just be interesting 5 man dungeons and a quest hub for all I care.

I've been saying this since Blizzcon. Blizzard knows that 4.3 won't hold up as long as they need it to, so they offer up Diablo III for free in exchange for a 12 month commitment to WoW.Right about the time the average player is "done" with Cataclysm (whatever that means for each player is different, of course) Diablo should be ready for us to play. That will give us a good distraction from WoW (so no Sunwell patch needed) and when the Beta comes out, we can choose to go back and check out Pandaria if we like.Personally, I'm probably going to avoid the Beta, I'd rather enjoy the content fresh when it goes live.
