If you follow WoW Insider, I'm sure you've noticed me going on about patch 5.2's dinosaur additions. (And, umm, if you haven't, well, let's just say I like dinosaurs and leave it at that, shall we?) But as to actually playing on the Isle of Giants? I'm content to wait a while, which is in part be...
