I’m rather proud of the last — in the stats above. I’ve never died by standing in fire /flex. The fact I have died far too many times (most in Outland) by not looking behind me when backing away as a Hunter… another story.

I read with interest from Frostheim on WoW Insider this morning that both the new Druid and Shaman AoE healing spells create voids on the floor. He’s worried it’s going to confuse the ‘don’t stand in sh*t’ mantra that (I know as a GM) you have to repeat again and again to people and I can entirely understand his concern. However, as I was discussing with a Guildie last night, watching your feet is likely to be the least of your worries once Cataclysm proper is upon us. This Guildie is one of our best in the DPS department (and is a damn smart tank to boot) and he was lamenting to me last night his inability on the PTR to find any kind of satisfactory rotation. With confirmation that Europe’s likely to see 4.0.1 on October 13th there’s going to be plenty of time to do our homework and prepare ourselves for Cataclysm’s new content. Whether we’ll all be ready to stand in the right stuff and move out of the wrong come December… well, that’s the plan. I’m considering programming a week of raiding once we’re there just to see how bad we all are at adapting to change…

As to the ACTUAL Cataclysm release…? December 7th says MMO, this time backed up by an actual Blue confirmation (even if it’s just of the new Season’s Battleground start date):

Arena battles and Rated Battlegrounds are only available during an active player versus player combat season. Season nine will begin on December 14th, so be prepared at that time to take your shot at glory!

Even with the use of ‘approximately’ in the blue post I’d say we’re pretty much set fair. Countdown Timer is amended…
