Meh.  WoW got real repetitive on me after a while.  I'm more excited about Batman Arkham Asylum II coming out next year.  Hopefully early next year.  It'll be the last time Mark Hamill voices the Joker.

WoW did get repetitive. However, they are completely redesigning the old world and making lots of changes to the maps and adding new ones. This will hold me over until The Old Republic comes out. Hopefully it will not be the suck.

Speaking of the Joker, did you see Batman Dead End? The joker is played by Andrew Koenig (Walter Koenig's son). He's dead! Killed himself earlier this year.
Am I the only one that finds it funny that he played a kid named Boner on a show called Growing Pains?

Yup, I saw Batman Dead End as soon as it was on the web.  I belong to a movie prop replica collecting website that the guy that made the Batman's costume is a member of.  That cowl is one of the best I've ever seen.

Playing the Cataclysm beata. Just got an invite the other day.
 
There are new areas on the original maps. There is a whole new area that is under water.
 
You can now fly in the original game areas. You can also pay more for master flying training and fly 310% speed instead of 280%.
 
You can now be a goblin (horde) and worgen (alliance), so there are new starting areas if you want to make a new character.
 
SW has a new area to it. Menthal bay is flooded. A few other things I am still looking at.
 
I can let you know more when I get to play more.
 
I will say they got rid of the portals in DAl and Shatrath. Which kinda sucks.

Maybe the portals are just not in the beta. I doubt ALL the changes are in the beta.

He did look pretty badass in that. The contacts were a nice added element.

From what I heard from people that have been playing the beate fromt he beginning is that the portals are gone and will not be coming back.  I mean they have trainers standing in the places the protals were. No reason to make that kind of change if it wasn't going to stay.

The beta is usually not the full version. Kind of like a teaser.
We shall see.

mmo-champion has all the updates... but the portals in Dal and Shat are being replaced by class trainers... they don't want those cities to be hubs anymore...

I did read that they want to bring the game back to the original continents. I guess that's a good way to do it. Maybe portals will show up in the main cities. There will be a bunch of patches after the expansion. There always is.

I doubt that they will pout them back.
 
You can fly on the original continents now, so getting around is not as bad.
 
Between that and the boats, it is not too hard to get around. I is just annoying in the beginning because you got so used to them.
 
Mages are going to be able to make a fortune though. Just stand in SW or DAL and offer portal services.

Org and SW should be the hubs anyway... Tho' I think Org has been destroyed... SM is way to far away to be a hub... as is UC... SW and Org are at the center of their continents...

Shat and Dal were  hubs solely because of the portals and no other reason...

They are adding new areas of each city to handle the the flying mounts.
Maybe you'll need flying to access a hub if they put them in.

Org is being fortified. Thrall is kicking the Trolls out and the city will have walls of steel and new areas for the flying mounts. The Trolls geting kicked out is almost like the Gnomes leaving IF and returning to Gnomeragon eventually. They keep hinting at that. I wonder how opposing factions will be dealt when they fly over eachother's cities, if they can.

I loved the DS9 episode when they brought back the TOS actors to play those characters again.
Kor, Kang, Kurn, and Martok were taken.
