I had heard Winterspring was almost completely unchanged. Is this false? If so how has it changed?
Like many Cataclysm zones, Winterspring is nearly unchanged geographically but almost completely overhauled in terms of questing. There's a zone-wide quest line to determine what's under Lake Kel'theril and why it's caused so much trouble. There are friendly blue dragonflight members. There are cameos by nearly every alien species in the Warcraft universe. It's worth a look, but of course, it's a matter of personal taste. You might like other revamped zones better.
How are tier sets purchased/earned/won in Cata?
Last I heard, it works like this:
- You can buy a few pieces of basic T11 with badges.
- Other pieces are only purchasable with tokens that drop from bosses.
- Heroic raid bosses that would drop tokens on normal mode drop tokens that are used to upgrade a set piece in a specific slot to its heroic equivalent.
- Sinestra drops a token that can be used to upgrade a set piece in any slot.
