September 25, 2012 - Mists of Pandaria launch

Die Wandernde Insel
, making the choice of which faction they want to play at the end of ther adventure there.
New Class: Monk
- These fast-paced leather wearers are able to play all roles in WoW: Brewmasters are tanks, Mistweavers are healers, and Windwalkers are DPS.

Flexible raid lockouts are announced!
The current system for lockouts has been announced to arrive in the Cataclysm pre-patch. With this system, you were able to freely swap between 10 and 25 man difficulties as you only needed 1 boss kill to count towards your completion of the instance. This was first implemented for
, and expanded to all non-heroic raids.
This system has eventually evolved to what we have today, where we can kill bosses as many times as we want on non-Mythic difficulties, with 1 chance for loot every week, and Mythic still locking you out once you kill a boss.
Check out when we reported this!
On the same day, Blizzard released a preview of the upcoming
new secondary profession in Cataclysm, Archaeology
! The archaeological factions Explorer's League (Alliance) and The Reliquary (Horde) are competing to see who finds the most historical finds and enlisting the aid of players to reach their objective. The profession includes tools and a book to check out which artifacts you've uncovered, and is full of cosmetic rares such as
Szepter von Azj'Aqir
Puzzlebox des Yogg-Saron
Thanks to the magic of Internet Archive, you can check the original preview page here!
