Twitter Time: What Cataclysm info do you want?

Michael Sacco

There's been a fair amount of new Cataclysm info trickling out of Blizzard's volcano lair lately, but of course, we still want more. There are whole systems we know next to nothing about! An entire continent whose cataclysmic changes are still a complete mystery! And just what the heck happens to Cairne Bloodhoof? Our little hearts can't take the suspense. So we did what any normal people would do: took to the nexus of short-form social networking (the Twitter) and asked you what you just had to know about Cataclysm.

As it turns out, plenty. And the variance in responses tells us one thing: we need a beta, stat. Here are some sample responses, with the rest hanging out after the break. Don't forget to follow us on the official Twitter account!
