Don't care that I've used that image before while traveling. You guys want Queues, by golly, you can deal with a repeat image every now and then. No sass!
Jacob Kuntzman asked:
I keep seeing and hearing that Hyjal and Vashj'ir will be level 80-82 zones. Is this right? Is Blizzard breaking from their previous pattern of offering the new batch of content to those two levels under? Outland at 58, Northrend at 68 ... So are the quests in Hyjal and Vashj'ir not offered at 78?
This is correct. You can only quest in Hyjal and Vashj'ir at 80. I can't speak as to the reasoning, but I assume it has something to do with the desired challenge for level 80 players in those zones. Values would either be too high for 78s or too easy for 80s.
