If you have not turned your PC on in over 3 weeks, avoided checking any gaming and news websites, and not talked with any of your wow gaming buddies. The you have missed Blizzards announcement of it's next expansion titled Cataclysm. Take everything you know about wow and throw it out the window. None of what you know right now about professions, equipment, stats, classes, talents, guilds, ANYTHING will matter in 6-8 months. We are 2 maybe 3 patches away from facing down Aurthus himself in the final battle of Northrend and returning to Azeroth as champions. It feels like I just got to Northrend too. /sad panda
Let's go back to taking down Aurthus for a second. In previous expansions, even in the original world, end game raids were only accessible to the "hard core" raider. Blizzard has made end game more accessible by fixing our talents and making better gear more accessible. Who would want to play a game and not see the end? So a big thank you to you Blizzard for inserting more fun for the non hardcore gamer.
Cataclysm will raise the level cap to 85 and promises a slew of improvements. So now is the time to level that last alt to 80, level cap your professions, and finish any achievements you were wanting. Cataclysm is right around the corner. Are you ready?
