As far as non-patch notes stuff goes, there's been some interesting stuff dug out of the files too, including some Ruby Sanctum files and some files that point toward huge spoilers for what we assume to be the pre-Cataclysm world event.
Overall, it's been a pretty awesome day for WoW news. Now that we've all hopefully had time to digest everything, what's your favorite tidbit from the patch?
I'd say it's easily the spoiler news mentioned above. But in the interest of discussing something that will definitely appear, I have to say I'm pretty stoked about the abolishment of battleground marks. In theory, this means it's a lot easier to get some of that good looking, fun battleground gear at lower levels. When I level my worgen priest, I can take time to do a few battlegrounds and grab that awesome Warsong Gulch staff, and my death knight can finally grab a full set of PvP mounts without having to run over 100 WSGs (because seriously, I never win WSG, I swear). I haven't been this excited about PvP in WoW since I got my Legionnaire title on my tauren hunter.
What about you? What item in the patch notes or tidbit from the PTR has caught your eye?
