Nov 3rd 2011 1:53AM Regarding Deathwing, I had good luck in Arathi Highlands on Friday. I saw him there twice in two hours on one character, and later, everyone on the / candy run got fried there.
Then again, it /is/ pretty random; being out in the world a lot can increase your chances.

One small technical problem: You forgot to file this under wow-archivist or add any tags.
And regarding the /Vengeance of the Void/ hoax, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see an Outland-revamp-plus-Argus expansion someday. (Is it in the works Over There in Faux Van Allen's universe?)
Sep 20th 2011 6:32PM Oh well, there's always the Ceremonial Leather Harness (http://www.wowhead.com/item=3313), and the Barbaric and Warbear harnesses (http://www.wowhead.com/item=5739 and http://www.wowhead.com/item=15064).

Aug 30th 2011 6:45PM Hordeside, I usually use the troll auctioneer and banker in the Valley Of Spirits. They're in the same building (with an innkeeper downstairs), and if you stand in the right spot, you can reach both of them and the guild bank without moving. It's also less crowded than other parts of Orgrimmar, and since my Horde main is a troll, he fits right in there. My Horde bank alt (also a troll) is usually parked there, too.
Alliance-side, I usually buy reagents in that shop by the mage tower in Stormwind City, because it's near the incoming portal. My human mage is exalted with Stormwind, too, so he gets the full reputation discount.
Aug 24th 2011 11:30AM Regarding version numbering: WoW hardly sets a record for a "large" second number in the version number (1.12.2) -- the old Second Life viewer got up to version 1.23.5 (5190) before Linden Lab switched all development to the 2.x viewer. There are probably other programs that have had enough incremental changes to push that second number even higher.
That said, I /do/ wonder why Blizzard skipped some patch numbers from 1.0 to the present, particularly in 3.x and 4.x. (Patch list: http://www.wowpedia.org/Template:Patches )
Aug 21st 2011 12:02AM Judging by the created/modified dates in my Zips folder, my very first addon was probably the Wowhead Looter (data collection/map coords) back in February 2009. I also got Cartographer shortly afterward for its map reveals.
Aug 1st 2011 9:20AM I tend to collect books, papers, and other readable items. Occasionally I'll keep something with interesting flavor text. On my human mage, I also kept a level-40ish outfit with the old Mordant's Travel Tunic -- http://www.wowhead.com/item=33229#screenshots:id=147522 ; I wish they'd given the new version a different object ID instead of making it totally replace the old version.
