DPS Meta Gem requirements changes
(Source DPS Meta Gem Change...Change it Back
The current design has been reconsidered, so we're planning to revert
gems that now require more blue than red gems back to their original
requirements. Such a change can't be accomplished via a hotfix though,
so we'll have to wait to revert these in a future patch.
Shattering release before the Expansion
(Source The Shattering is Xmas without the presents
From a production standpoint, it makes a lot more sense to release such
sweeping changes to the world before the expansion itself is released so
we can ensure everything is running smoothly. We want to make sure the
process of activating Cataclysm-exclusive content is as easy and smooth
This content spent a great deal of time in testing environments, but the
best way to know things are functioning correctly is to implement these
data changes on all live realms. There actually is a lot of new content
and things to see for players out there right now too (unless you
prefer sitting in Dalaran at level 80 all night).

free content patch two weeks prior to launch, and we get two weeks to
make sure any remaining kinks are ironed out.

7th to change to a goblin?
I've been told that if you buy a race change now you can simply wait
until the new race/class combos are available to use it. I don't see why
that wouldn't also apply to goblin/worgen, but I haven't seen specific
If it's comforting, when you click the button to change race you can
actually cancel out and not use it. When you click on the button you're
not forced to use the race change request right then and there. In any
case I guess my point is you could cancel out and seek further
City Tabards do not give reputations
(Source New Faction Tabard not gaining rep
This is a bug we will be hotfixing in the very near future. The city
tabards should currently work in old Azeroth dungeons (as well as
Cataclysm 80-85 dungeons when the expansion is released). The hotfix
will make it so these tabards work for Heroic and normal Northrend
dungeons, however, there are no plans as of yet to apply this change to
