And while we've still got another week in the land of theory, right now we're taking a trip... well, stil...

Mount Hyjal and Vashj'ir, the two opening zones of the expansion, will now require level 80 to enter and begin questing in. Betas go through a lot of balance and e...

We'll also be getting a couple other fixes, like learnable mounts and mini-pets. And Tigole just confirmed toda...
