Oct 16th 2010 11:03AM I haven't been playing since July, and expected 4.01 to bring me back, but it hasn't really. I logged on and checked out the hunter changes, respecced, and considered training some new pets, but I haven't gotten around to doing it. I think the biggest issue with 4.01 is that it hasn't really added any new content, just changed it. 3.01 added achievements and in the weeks leading up to release for wrath everyone was busy getting all the achievements available in the old world. I think it would have been smart to add something more to 4.01, like more Gnomergan or Echo Isles content, currently it's mostly just UI changes.
Jun 30th 2010 11:54AM I just finished reading Stormrage and I was surprised at how widespread the action was. It essentially tells the story of how Azeroth is almost completely destroyed. Yet none of the events have taken place in game (yet, maybe cata pre-launch?). This seems to be a trend with Richard Knaak's writings, how many other world changing events have taken place in warcraft lore since the game was released, but never made it into the game's action?
May 13th 2010 5:40PM This question was already addressed back in April but with the recent leaks I wanted to know if there was any clarification.
Will there be new Capital Cities for the worgen and goblins that function similarly to those of the Belfs and Draenei? From what I can tell both cities will be added, Gilnaes sounds like it will be part of a "Taking the Undercity" type event, but from the recent list of zones and subzones it appears to also be a normal city. Has there been any word from Blizzard on this subject? I know they said that there will be no new neutral city, but have they said anything else?
Apr 25th 2010 9:25AM Back in Vanilla it was Priests for me. The highest I got was 13 on my night elf. When BC rolled around I tried a belf priest, he is still sitting around at lvl 12.
To answer the second part of your question, I really admire a good feral druid. I leveled my druid feral and as I got closer to 80 I realized how crazy hard it was going to be to DPS as a feral druid so I switched to heals. My hat goes off to any Druid who can pump out solid DPS as a cat.
Apr 13th 2010 11:09AM I feel that end the only end game instances that will still see use are the normal versions of the Frozen Halls and TOC. The items in there are all epics, and unless Blizzard automatically makes Cata greens iLvl 232 or higher, the items from those instances will still be huge upgrades once you hit 80. Some people might run a couple for the extra xp and a couple free epics to make 80-85 even faster.
Apr 5th 2010 10:36PM This is probably a question best answered by Sacco.
How big is the World of Warcraft team? Not counting the artists/programmers, how many people are directly involved in shaping the lore, mechanics, classes, races? Names like Tom Chilton, Greg Street, Kaplan, Metzen, and the other big ones seem to pop up all over the place. Are these just the guys who deal with the public the most, or are there just ten or so people who sit down and decide that *Spoiler* Bolvar should be the next Lich King, or that Hunters should use focus in Cata? Are folks like Sacco and the other community people involved at all? Really my question boils down to: How close knit is the Blizzard WoW production team?

There are a lot of places that used to be accessible using a technique called "wall jumping". It used to be possible to jump forward and land on a near vertical surface without sliding down (you had to jump forward without moving once you landed) Blizz has since "fixed" this. I personally used this to access the places you mentioned and more (I actually used eyes of the beast to get into both Old IF and under SW where the portal is). It will be interesting to see how places like IF airport change with the addition of flying mounts.
