Wryxian (European community manager) just released a question-and-answer session done with Blizzard game designers Luis Barriga and Craig Amai about the changes Darkshore has in store in Cataclysm, as well as complications that come with redesigning an existing zone.

Reader Eckstremus sends us this shot showing off some of Azeroth's weather patterns. (Which usually seem both mild and fleeting -- Azeroth is a pretty sunny place, all in all.) For those of you who can't recognize the location through the storm, we're looking out on the boat dock in Auberdine -- th...
