Speculating on a release date from a book being pushed back is simply moronic. It has more to do with the publishers schedule or the book needing more work than MoP's release date. I know it's a slow news day but Jesus this is silly.

This has been downrated, but he is not wrong, really... I have seen book publishing dates change rather quickly, and I am not sure, but I do seem to remember one of the WOW novels' release dates being changed quite a bit as well.I am sure Blizz has some kind of agreement with the publisher regarding timing the release with their expansion-schedule, but stuff like this can happen anyway, with the publisher changing release dates quite a bit for several of their books, without considering each case like "OH yeah, then there is this one, which is supposed to go with the release of that video game expansion".So I wouldn't say this is the most reliable indicator.Two questions come to mind:1. Did Blizz ever say anything about Wolfheart coming out so late, AFTER Twilight of The Aspects, when it should have come out shortly after Cata, as that is when the story happens (the story is set before the events in TotA, right?)? 2. Did Blizz ever say that the Proudmoore book will be an actual prelude and will be released before MoP comes out? It doesn't have "A Prelude to MoP" in the title. It doesnt have to, of course, but then again, only Cataclysm had a prelude novel (Arthas didn't come out until April 1st, 2009), so why does Tides of War have to come out before the game? Has Blizzard confirmed that it will come out before the game does, that it will be timed to be another prelude, or is it possible that it will come out afterwards, just like TotA came out AFTER 4.2 and Wolfheart came out months after it should have?So, just like raingod said, I am not sure that the release date really tells us too much about a possible MoP release date
