Blog - Battle.net -
Battle.net merges mandatory after Nov. 12
Blizzard finally has made a clear decision (if you call updating the Battle.net FAQ a decision :P) on non-Battle.net accounts that a huge percentage of the userbase dreaded for.

Blog - Icons -
Return to the Valley of the Icons
Another pack of icons have arrived - plenty of them are quite famous through the items they portrait. Shadowmourne and Quel'Delar are assumed to be among them.
OH WAIT - one of the swords actually looks like a frozen
Don't you reckon, even without the glowing circle that is stuck in the blade (as seen
), it could very well be a redesigned Ashbringer? Of course I could be wrong with that assumption.
Blog - Pit of Saron -
Pit of Saron Impressions
Here we get an overview of one part of the 5 man instance, namely the Pit of Saron. Argent gives us tips and impressions from the dungeon. Apparently it is an outdoor instanced zone you can ride in.

Starting the first part of the speculations around Quel'Delar, ArgentSun lays out the quest line concerning the High (Ancient) Keeper as it is translated on

Here ArgentSun is asking users for their opinion on the rumored return of the Gnomes to their beloved (and usually hated by players) city, Gnomeregan in Cataclysm. Though, the gaming magazine which spread said rumor, also mentioned that the Gnomes might 'accidentally' destroy Gnomeregan (once again) at some point in the future.
