What about Illidan you may ask, well, WE KILLED THE BASTARD !! Hah !! We got a video as well, which will be uploaded sometime later.
And, he was kind enough to drop a Warglaive on our first kill.
Trainer skills in WotLK
There's a pretty long post on the neograf forums which lists most of the new spell and ability ranks for hunters, druids, mages, paladins. And even other classes such as priests, rogues, shamans, warlocks and warriors. As you'll quickly see there are quite a few skills still missing.
Healing gear getting changed
Some interesting info from blizzard :
Tom Chilton (Kalgan) Wrote : We’re also going to be doing away with spell-damage only type gear. We’ll be moving to a system that, as part of your talents, will let players convert healing into spell-damage and vice-versa as part of their talents. That way they can use the exact same gear, but their talents just adapt what it does.”
More info on this at Deathknight.info.
Before you cry foul and scream that means mages will be rolling on your healing gear and priests on your warlock gear. Yeah they will. Also, spell damage based classes such as the above ones will have some of their talents and/or spells changed to reflect these changes. Meaning the holy priest tree for example will have a talent which converts x% of your spell damage into +Healing. So in the end you should remain pretty much at the same level as before.
There's also a shaman rumor that you'll be able to cast totems while silenced due to them being moved to the physical school.
Blizzard is planning some odd things for skinning, herbalism and mining.
Could be quite useful for paladins (who have no real ranged attacks of their own, other than by talents) to pick up mining . Hopefully there are multiple levels of these skills, 50 damage is sort of poor even though it's free damage.
Also in the expansion
At least four new mounts : Frost Wyrm, Great Brewfest Kodo, Black Warp Stalker, Swift Zhevra
Also, several new images uploaded to Wikidot yesterday, and today.
I signed up for Project Wonderful as a google alternative. Surprisingly you can also use both at the same time if you wished. Much like Entrecard is doing at the moment. PW uses a form of auctioning instead of pay per click or pay per subscription. Could be interesting to see how that works out. Won't know till you try at any rate.
I'm aware that the "li" html tag may look nice on the blog, it seems to cause odd jumps in some RSS readers. I'll have to look it up in the CSS some time.
